A must do trip. The scenic drive along the coast was breathtaking. Monterey and Carmel are great tourist communities. Our driver/guide was a wealth of information and a real personality who made the long trip fun.

We traveled in a comfortable coach driven by Thomas, our guide for the trip. His commentary of places we were passing on our journey was both informative and interesting. He kept us engaged and answered all of our questions. Thomas was respectful of each individual's needs while keeping everyone on schedule. The coastal scenery was spectacular and we had several opportunities to capture it on camera. Overall a wonderful trip. Thank you Thomas for making it so interesting and pleasurable.

I always like Grey Line Tour in USA or Canada!

I have joint this tour by Grey Line a few times over the past years!

This time was the best as the tour guide / Driver Antonio was the best.

Was surprised by his great command of English and knowledge of place / subject of interest
He should have been a private tour guide and not a bus driver/guide.

He was able to control the tour timing so that we were able to reach Carmel to catch the sunset at 4:45pm.

Overall a Great Tour!

Amazing trip, fantastic reviews, Monterey and Carmel are beautiful, made staying in dirty, drug addict, homeless infested San Francisco totally worth it. The driver was also amazing

We enjoyed our day trip to Monterey, Carmel. Our driver Kenneth was amazing! Friendly, informative, funny and made the drive very enjoyable.
The only recommendation is one of the stops we made at Arro's Store/tourist bus stop. The conditions of store and bathrooms were filthy. Waited in long lines to use one bathroom outside. I would not stop there!
Would totally recomend this day trip. The views and stops are breathtaking.

The best so far in my San Francisco Tour. So lovely. A tour I will never fall out of love. Even if I repeat it many, many times. How I wish you can make tour that will allow your guests to stay for an overnight in Monterey and Carmel.

Our tour guide was great! Although the fog rolled in, he kept stopping so we could take pictures. He would tell us the history, so we could appreciate the view even if it wasn't as clear as we wanted. It was a wonderful experience even with the foggy times.

7 of us took this all day tour. Viator was poor at discussing pick up locations and our hotel was not on their pick up list. The reason for this is that the tour company was directly across the street from the hotel. The tour is actually operated by Greyhound. The weather was superb and the scenery stunning. Of all the tours we have taken this one is definitely one of the best. Plenty of time for an excellent lunch at Fish Hopper on Monterey. The walk down to the beach in Carmel was delightful although the water mid October was 52 degrees so just a quick chance to dip your toes in the Pacific Ocean. Plenty of time to enjoy the Pebble Beach Golf Links and walk down the the famous 18th. Hole. Highly recommended.

The views were spectacular on the bus ride down to Carmel by the Sea. This trip was more than expected and Randy the Bus driver just made it more enjoyable. Randy stopped at a fruit stand where we were able to buy strawberries that were delicious.

For a quick day trip, it was no fuss and very convenient! Easy pick up and drop off. The driver was very informative and the drive was smooth. Enjoyed having some time to sight see - though, some of these places could be day trips on to themselves.

Our family enjoyed the beautiful coastal line of this tour going from San Francisco to Monterey and Carmel, CA. It was nice weather, sunny with a nice cool weather in the morning. Our bus driver was friendly.

This was great. Tour guide/driver made it all interesting. We did not spend much time in Carmel and by the time we got there a lot,of the places were closing. Its too bad the bus cant park near the beach area. The rest of the trip was fabulous, its a beautiful area.

Apart from the disappointing early morning fog that we experienced for the first hour, the tour was very good. I think the trip would not have been as enjoyable without Kenneth our North Carolina driver. What an excellent employee to have on your payroll! Heee taaalked sooo slooow and was so humourous you couldn't help but love this guy. His knowledge of the route was excellent and with his skill in cultivating relationships with the passengers we were all able to actively engage with the banter English word for humour that was being exchanged. The scenery was great all along this coastline and we were fortunate enough to be able to spot some whales whilst we were on the '17 mile drive' part of the journey. All in all my wife and I enjoyed this excursion, but let me repeat Kenneth made it successful.

This was a very interesting trip with great scenery.
Ray was our driver. He was great. His commentary was very interesting. He knows so much about the areas. Visited the Aquarium also. Very good. The only disappointing factor is there is not enough time spent in Carmel and too long in Monterey.

We got to stop at a fruit stand on the way. The blackberries were huge! Also, tried fried artichokes. The Monterey Aquarium was awesome! Our tour got to step to the front of the line! We had lunch by the ocean. Then travelled to Carmel. We had plenty of time for lunch or dinner at any of the fabulous restaurants! The 17-Mile drive took us through Pebble Beach golf course. We stopped to sea the seals on the rock! Saw a few celebrity houses. Then stopped at the Pebble Beach Clubhouse! NICE TRIP!

would recommend - saw a painting in the window of shop - couldn't make my mind up so just took a picture with my camera, went back to San Francisco and regretted it, rang tourist information in Carmel, they found the picture for me, I had it posted home and it is now hanging in my living room.
