Tims tour is interesting, educational and fun. He must have done this tour many many times but you would not think so, he is so enthusiastic and engaging with information and photographs. We had a great afternoon with him. Highly recommended.

Tim Thomas has a fascinating story to tell of the history of cannery row. We all think we know it - but wrong! There's more to this little strip of pacific grove than sardines. Enjoy a walk that will change how you see Cannery Row

Tim is an excellent tour guide, a natural teacher with impressive credentials. He is most knowledgeable and interweaves the history with amusing anecdotes, intriguing tidbits of information and lots of hands-on artefacts and photos in an album he has on hand to augment his talk. Our group was only 4 people so we could move quickly and he was easily... More

Tim was very knowledgeable. The area he covered is not a huge distance and includes opportunities to sit. He spent almost 3 hours with our small group and there were points where people with time constraints were able to leave early.

A great walking historical tour on Monterey Bay - Cannery Row. There are like few who have the knowledge Tim has on the canning industry on Monterey Bay. One can close their eyes and imagine how it once was. Historical snippets on migrants who worked and helped build the sardine industry was so informative. Tim is a Monterey native and... More

If you are even the tiniest bit interested in local history, take one of these tours by Tim Thomas. OK, even if you're not interested at all in local history, go on a tour, because you will be by the time the tour is over. This is the kind of tour that is fascinating whether you are a tourist or...

Caveat--I met Tim Thomas, who gives these tours, a number of years ago, and I assumed, based on past encounters, that this would be an excellent tour. I was not disappointed. Gf & I took advantage of a Groupon (may no longer be available). Even at full price it would have been a bargain. Mr. Thomas has a long background... More

Tim Thomas provided a entertaining ,very informative and enjoyable tour of Cannery Row. Would do it again in a heartbeat. He is a wealth of information and brings the locations to life with his narrative, historical photographs and props. Do it....you'll be glad you did!

My girlfriends and I live in the area, but love learning about the rich history of this area. Tim Thomas is so knowledgeable about this area. He gave so much information and answered all of our questions. We even went a bit over the two hours because he loves to talk about this stuff so much! In addition to what... More
