Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
What to Expect
First pass through south of San Francisco until we reach the scenic Pacific Coast Highway 1 , starting in Pacifica and heading down to Santa Cruz (Surf Museum Lighthouse, Boardwalk and Pleasure Point), charming village of Capitola, Monterey and Carmel (17-Mile Drive and Carmel by the Sea).

You may customize your itinerary, by replacing the above with Monterey Bay Aquarium or Carmel-Mission basilica.

You are responsible for any purchases of a personal nature, including lunch at a restaurant of your choice or suggested by the tour-guide.


1) Santa Cruz & Capitola - you will visit attractions including Surf Museum Lighthouse Point, Pleasure Point and Boardwalk. Santa Cruz is also known for companies that manufacture surfboards, skateboards and clothing. Then, you stroll through Capitola's charming and tiny beachside village.

2) Monterey & Carmel - Along Monterey coastline, I will take you to Moss Landing (sea lions) and Cannery Row. You will also enjoy a cruise along the world famous 17-Mile Drive, a scenic road that runs through Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach, following the coastline and passing through several famous golf courses, nearby mansions and past California's famed Lone Cypress Tree. You will take a stroll through downtown Carmel, visiting boutique shops, restaurants and its architecture.
