Two-day Los Angeles & San Francisco Private Tour
1 review
Only on a private tour does it makes sense to visit Los Angeles and San Francisco on an overnight trip up the California coast. Tour top attractions in each city along with a guide, including the Hollywood Sign, Venice Beach, and Golden Gate Bridge, and then take your time and admire the views as you drive along the famous Highway 1, stopping at Santa Barbara, Monterey, and Carmel-by-the-Sea.

You can park outside of the state park and save $10. It’s a very short hike. The views from the cliffs outside of the park is better than the views down the trail inside the park. Watch out for poison oak.
