Great day, Marco our driver and guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and helpful. Our only downside was that with so many stops along the way when we finally reached Carmel we only had one hour to spend looking around. It was a rush and we were unable to enjoy this beautiful town.

Lovely trip but would have preferred to have less time in Monterey and more time in Carmel. I felt by the time we got to Carmel an hour there was rushed and no time to explore and get a coffee.

My husband and I were attending a conference in the San Francisco area and wanted to do something that would cover a lot of California quickly without having to rent a car, get a map and try to figure out where the heck we were going. Well, this day trip to Monterey and Carmel fulfilled that need and more! Our tour guide, George, was great! He was very knowledgeable and kept you engaged on the bus. We made stops along the way to eat lunch and grab snacks. It is definitely worth every penny! I plan to do it again if I'm ever in the California area gain. Thank you!

Fabulous day out with the lovely George as our guide, he was very informative and funny. It is a long day (11 hours) but it’s a great way of seeing the coastline and surrounding areas. I would throughly recommend it. Thanks George for making our day out feel so special.
