We had a great day, the weather was beautiful and the scenery amazing. We weren't 100 sure why we were dropped at a shopping centre in Carmel that didn't really offer anything to a tourist, but gather it was so the driver could have a break, and it was nice to have a stretch of the legs and a coffee, be nicer if they found somewhere else though, preferably closer to the water.

Disappointed that we could not spend more time @ Pebble Beach. The tour had gotten behind in time and we were unable to see everything..but we were probably the only golfers on the tour

A totally fantastic day out we had Willie as our driver and tour guide and he just made the day with all his great stories and his knowledge of the area was beyond compare. We were collected at our hotel and returned to our hotel a full 12 hours later with many stops off along the way, thanks for a great day out

This was a very nice trip. George, the driver, was extremely knowledgeable, and had a running narrative for most of the way. The stops were well planned and just the right amount of time. It's a beautiful day trip, and cost was reasonable. One suggestion might be to have all riders say where they are from, which would encourage some togetherness during the stops. We seemed to start to communicate as the trip ended.
All in all, I would highly recommend this trip.

A beautiful scenic drive along the coast.
Monterey has quite a few nice restaurants with fantastic views, the aquarium however is the main attraction. The shops for the most part are very touristy.
The 17 mile drive was also quite stunning with glimpses of whales in the ocean.
Carmel had very upscale stores and we spent only an hour there, barely enough time to really appreciate the place, besides it was dark by the time we arrived. Would have liked to spend a bit more time in Carmel
Our tour guide Wille was very good and accommodating, but it was a bit disconcerting when he occasionally checked his I-pad while driving. Not good!!!!
The tour was an all day venture, three and a half hours drive each way, from and back to San Francisco.
Other than the texting and driving the tour overall was quite worthwhile.

A long day but very enjoyable. Need to sit on the right side of the coach otherwise miss out good views of the ocean. Patrick was an excellent guide. Just to let you know Patrick that in some parts of the world it is illegal to turn right or left on a red light!!!!

Our tour guide - George was great but we didn't enjoy stopping at one point to see seals in the distance and all the rocks in Pebble Beach/17 mile drive. We wanted to spend more than an hour in Carmel!!
