Monica Hudson was our guide for a sales conference group. She was so knowledgeable and made the tour of Pebble Beach and Carmel very special. She knows all the fun history of the air and wAs a joy to be with for the morning! Take her tour if you can.

Our California Legacy Tours with Monica were fantastic in every way! We love the Carmel/Monterey area and look forward to visiting this beautiful part of California every chance we get. The weather was perfect for a leisurely stroll along the same paths of famous writers and poets. On our first tour, Following the Footsteps of Robert Louis Stevenson, Monica brought... More

Monica took us on a historical tour that I was reluctant to be part of. I am so delighted I decided to participate. Even though I had been in Monterey city for two weeks already, Monica showed us and explained details that I was not even aware existed. I am sure coming back for a proper holiday with my husband...

My wife and I took the Point Lobos walking tour with Monica Hudson. What a treat!!! Monica was informative, professional and a delight. Two hours of whales, sea lions, harbor seals, otters and the beautiful Point Lobos State Reserve. I highly recommend it. The only suggestion I would have: make it longer!!! I could spend the whole day with Monica.

My sister and I recently took my nephew and his friends to CA for Car Week. While we appreciated his passion for cars, we also had our own desire to see some of what the area had to offer. After reviewing several options, we opted to go on the morning Pointe Lobos tour with Monica. She greeted us at the... More

We have been to Carmel by the Sea many times, but so enjoyed all the fun details and history from Monica's tour. She is friendly, professional and really knows about the area from living there many years and researching her book. We found places we had never seen and plan to return to. Thank you Monica!

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!
