This was a real eye-opening tour revealing a completely different side to San Francisco (and indeed LA). The beauty of the coastline, the opulence of the holiday homes on 17 mile drive and the seafood at Cannery Row (particularly the chowder) was "to die for"!
A very full day (around 12 hours) but well worth it - and brilliant value for money.
We drove about 100 miles to get to the 17 mile scenic trip. Stopped at Pebble Beach which was the highlight. Made stops along the way for great photo shoots.
Kenneth our driver was great. He was knowledgeable throughout the trip and amusing. He made the trip enjoyable. The views were incredible, Monterey was great for lunch( Kenneth recommended the Fishermans Frog) it was the best lunch we ever had. Top notch food and great views. We can't praise Ken enough, he was that good turning strangers on a tour bus into a group of friends sharing a very good if long tour day together.
It was an long excellent day. We were picked up from our hotel at 8:10am and didn't get dropped back off until after 9pm. Kenneth was an great tour guide. He set a relaxed tone right from the start. We enjoyed ourselves and it was nice to leave the city for the day and see more of California.
Really nice. Very relaxing. The bus driver was extremely nice, courteous and knowledgable. Had a good time.
the tour was great----got to see towns on the pacific coast i hadn't seen before----was kind of surprised hat Carmel is hardly ever sunny-----kind of disappointing and the shops were way out of my price range,but the tour was very enjoyable. Kenneth was a great tour guide, with a wealth of information!!!!---loved the ride thru the Salinas valley with all the farms-----it was exactly like out of a Steinbeck novel!!!!-----a really great 12-hour tour that was really reasonable, and a great tour guide, Kenneth.
The tour was excellent and a great way to discover surrounding areas of SF that are not accessible by public transport. Besides, to properly appreciate the coastal scenery you dont want to be driving at the same time. The driver/tour guide provided useful commentary throughout and was a mine of information. The pick ups and drop offs were bang on schedule. Overall great value for money.
As always for me, Viator, came through with flying colors. Excellent tour with informative and courteous driver. highly recommend day tour. Jim from B.C.
