A friend and I spent two hours exploring Carmel with Monica Hudson of California Legacy Tours. It was two hours well spent seeing things we would never have noticed on our own. Monica is very knowledgeable about the history of Carmel and presented it in a way that made me appreciate Carmel for more than just it's beautiful location. She... More

In two enchanting hours, I learned more about the history of quaint Carmel from our knowledgable & FUN walking tour guide, Monica Hudson, than I had absorbed in some forty years of living in the area! Even though the day was a bit overcast and cool (often typical Carmel weather...which somehow added to the charm of the experience), the time... More

Monica was our step on guide on our califonia dreaming bus tour. We had 48 people and everyone loved her! She is very knowledgeable about the area, has great stories and is very amusing! We wanted her to go all the way to LA with us. Would highly recommend Monica for any tour. Excellent job Monica!

I was not familiar with Carmel and Monterey and wanted a break from planning an itinerary for the day. Monica knows so much about the area because she has lived there for years. The day before our tour,... More

I contacted monica before my trip to inquire about activities with a toddler. She responded the same day with not only a list of activities but also links to all of the websites. Believe the hype, she is a fantastic resource for the area and offers tours for both Carmel and Monterey. Thank you Monica!!

I was fortunate to have been invited to join my boyfriend and his family for this amazing once in a lifetime experience. Monica was not only knowledgeable in all aspects of Carmel and the surrounding area but she was personable, and had an amazing sense of humor. By the end of the trip she was like 'one of the family'... More

My brother treated his family members of 15 people to a trip to Carmel this past month. I researched for a tour guide and was fortunate to have Monica Hudson of California Legacy Tours. Monica listened carefully to what we wanted to see and experience, i.e. she researched about a specific interest of ours (hawling/marketing fish). Because of our specific... More

We couldn't have received a better tour of the Monterey area. We were so impressed with Monica's all incompassing knowledge in history, geography, plants, animals -- and local tidbits. Add to that a very pleasant personality and sense of humor, and you get an excellent tour!
