Excellent tour, covered all the major spots along California coast from Santa Cruz to Monterey to Carmel by the sea with important stops along the coast with appropriate time to take photos. Our your guide Doug and river Jason were pretty amazing and Doug has a thorough knowledge and passion and he was did an excellent job explaining all the important history on the tour. 17 Mile drive and pebble Beach were pretty amazing and beautiful. In Carmel, if you do not plan to shop, consider walking to the beach, it's a 0.5 mile walk slightly tedious walk (considering all the elevations) from the bus stop but it's worth it. In Monterey, aquarium will always be sold out when you arrive unless you dont book it prior, so 2 he is a little long, but considering it in life's lunch stop too, it totally makes sense. Apart from cannery row, consider taking a walk across lovers point trail in Pacific Grove which is just next to cannery row, it's pretty scenic.
The journey was excellent. We had a guide named Antonio, who throws a lot of information during the ride. He gave us a chance to walk around (and click pictures) at his personal favorite like Pigeon point, farmers market. I must tell he has great taste. Grayline travelers are well aware of how to take care of their customers. I would highly recommend people who like beaches and information about in and around SF to go on this trip.
A pleasant tour from start to finish. We had perfect weather and traffic conditions. Antonio, our driver and tour guide, was very professional, friendly, pleasant, efficient, and relaxed. I enjoyed this tour a lot.
George our tour guide was funny and knew a lot about San Fransisco!
Excellent Guide-- Well Timed out- and we had a very good time!
