Our tour guide, George was amazing. He provided an in-depth background of the region. The sights along the route were breathtaking. This is an organized professional touring company. We would schedule with this company for our future travels!

This trip exceeded our expectations. George, our tour guide, was awesome. He was informative and fun as we rode along Highway 1. We even took a trip to Pebble Beach along the way. Pick up and drop off at our hotel made the trip super easy. This trip is a must-do while visiting San Francisco.

This was an amazing tour. I was on this tour by myself since my husband had a conference to attend. I never felt unsafe or worried. Our driver, George, was remarkable. I was picked up at my hotel and taken to the main location where I waited just a few minutes to get on the tour bus. When we left, traffic was heavy because of the Dreamforce conference. My favorite part of this tour was the amount of time we had in Monterrey. I ate lunch while in Monterrey and had time to walk around after lunch. My least favorite part was the amount of time we had in Carmel by the Sea. I wish we had spent more time there. It is an awesome little city with some great shops. Driving down the Pacific Coast Highway was amazing. The ocean is beautiful. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Great day out with beautiful views along the coast. Our fantastic driver Patric really made this tour with all his knowledge and information parted along the way. He was funny and gave helpful advise about where to eat for great service, photo opportunitys with plenty of time to get a great shot, and things to look out for. He even made some time to get a quick visit to Pebble Beach. Then we were delivered to our accommodation. Excellent day out.

I highly recommend this tour. The tour guide was incredibly knowledegable and personable - he knew pretty much everything about his subject and the local areas we were touring. This was also the only bus of all the tours I took from San Fran that had a bathroom on board. I really enjoyed the Monterey Aquarium - it was my son and I's first trip there and it is an amazing place. The 17 mile drive was especially beautiful with the scenic beaches, it was quintessential Northern California, Carmel, Pebble Beach, etc. It was nice to take the bus and not have to worry about doing the drive, then somebody could explain what we were looking at.

Long day, but definately worth all the travelling. Full bus, but not too large a group and the coast is truly beautiful we stopped at some nice places and plenty of time to take pictures and look around.

Second time we take the tour, this time with our daughters. The scenery, the visited towns, the information given by the guides is entertaining, and interesting. The Monterey Aquarium is a most, and Carmel is a Jewel. Dont hesitate to take this tour.
