Good area to walk if you like to shop and eat. Plenty of eating options. Don't forget to get your free chocolate sample at the Ghirardelli store! Touristy and unique stores to be found here. Great for families, couples and singles.
A great history of Monterey and the impact of the fishing and cannery business. Tim Thomas is very knowledgeable and brings history to life. He is armed with props, pictures, and stories. It was a well spent two hours. My only observation is that Tim...More

As others have mentioned, Tim is a terrific tour guide. We knew nothing about Cannery Row when we started but by the end of the tour we could visualize what it would have been like to be there back in the day. Tim's knowledge, props...More
