Visiting Hearst Castle... Tour time

We have booked a room in San Simeon for the night of Monday 8th August, and we want to visit Hearst Castle in the afternoon of that day, so we can get off to an early start the next day for our journey on to SF.

We will be driving from Glendale, so which time tour do you think we should book?

I've been on their websiteand they leave at 10 min(?) intervals.

We don't want to arrive too early and have to hang around, and obviously not too late.

We could leave Glendale at, say, 9.00 am

What do you think?

Glendale to Hearst Castle is about a 4-5 hour drive without stops. A 9:00 am departure time from Glendale would avoid a lot of commute traffic and get you to Hearst between 1:00 & 2:00. If you go with the 3:00 pm tour, this would be the ideal plan.

All booked for 1510

Must have had a sudden rush for the 1500, there was only one place left!
