“Must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is really unique. If you are in the neighborhood, you must ride this 17 Mile scenic route, probably best from North to South. Cost $ 9.75, but it is worth it. You get a little folder telling you some specifics about the different spots.When you get out, you feel and see the force of wind and water. No problem to see wildlife: seals, humback whale, ... High class restaurants and cottages and golf courses (Pebble Beach) along the route.

“Beautiful scenic drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Although we were taken by surprised by the polemical USD 10, my husband and I decided to do the drive on our way out of Carmel as it would be the perfect way to say goodbye to this beautiful region... And we were not disappointed! We enjoyed the drive, the very scenic beaches, the wildlife (we even saw some deer on the golf course!) and we were blessed with perfect weather (no fog!) We stopped a number of times for photographs and what we thought would be a 30-minute deal lasted about 2 hours, but this was time very well spent. Had we had one extra day in Carmel we would have ridden a bike instead of doing the drive. It certainly would have been an amazing experience too!

“Worth the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

The 17-mile drive is a must for anyone travelling down from SF to Carmel/Monterey. The view is breath-taking and beyond words.
