As a former Californian who never visited the Pacific Coast Highway north of LA I was treated to a dynamic tour. My wife and I joined two from London and it was a great and personal time. Kelly was our tour driver and she constantly gave us views, restaurant tips, byways and highways that never failed to excite the visual.... More

We are an Aussie couple who originally planned to hire a vehicle to do the coast run from LA to San Francisco, and possibly hiring another vehicle to do Yosemite and Death Valley after a four day stay in San Francisco. Organising car hire, insurance, itinerary, accommodation and having to drive on the opposite side of the road was quite... More

I don't drive but I want to take a road trip from SF down to LA, so choosing this tour is a very easy decision. And it's one hell of a great decision. Adam contacted me long before the start day to confirm pick up location. And I appreciated him for that. For many wrong reasons, I ended up changing... More

Highlights included Monterey, Carmel, Hearst Castle obviously they know the top spots for holiday snaps. Adam arranged the hotel bookings and luggage to the rooms. Excellent trip... More

This was a great, small group, well planned tour, a wonderful way to see so many fantastic sights along the coast from San Fransisco to LA. Being in a small (and comfortable) vehicle had not only the advantage of easy access to small towns and more out of the way places, it also encouraged a good interaction between travellers. Kelly,...

I took the multi day California coastal tour with Adam, I had a great time!! Adam is a really nice person to be around. And we were able to stop in many places for pictures which was great. I had the opportunity to meet amazing cities, like Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel, Solvang, Santa Barbara! Would definitely recommend!

I just completed the California Coastal tour with Adam as our guide. I had an excellent time and would absolutely recommend this trip. There were 6 people total on the trip (myself, my friend, and 2 lovely Australian couples.) You will cover a lot of ground and Adam was an extremely knowledgeable and accommodating guide. I would definitely take another... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
