This full day excursion from San Francisco to Monterey, Carmel and 17-Mile Drive was excellent value and a highlight of my visit to California. Our tour guide, Kenneth, was very friendly and his commentary was very entertaining and informative. He was also an excellent driver. The scenery along the coastline was beautiful. There were stops along the way to take photos, visit shops and restrooms, and to buy food, drinks, etc. I visited the Aquarium in Monterey for about an hour and then for the remaining hour I enjoyed fish and chips on the sandy beach and then did some souvenir shopping. I also really enjoyed seeing Carmel and the 17-mile drive. The trip back to San Francisco as the sun went down was relaxing. It was interesting, too, as we passed by headquarters of some of the famous technology companies like Microsoft, Xerox and Google. I would definitely recommend this full day tour. We arrived back in San Francisco about 8:30pm and I had dinner near Union Square. A great day. Thanks, Kenneth!

was a great day, our driver Kenneth was marvellous and made the day, full of info and insights into life in Carmel and Monterey. A real gentleman. Eye opening, totally different to what I expected the country in between, the coast is quite desolate compared to Australia coast with no houses along the ocean front due to it being lava, the fault line. Pebble Beach the place of the rich and famous was beautiful and the Golf Club allowed us inside the club lounge, stunning! and were very welcoming. Monterey touristy but good seafront lunch places, Carmel so beautiful, expensive and the home of the rich and famous.

We had a fantastic day and it was everything we hoped it would be. Previous reviews praised our driver, Walter, and they were right as he was a perfect host ! All the arrangements went to plan and helped to make the day so special. Thanks to everyone involved.
