Unique way to look at the area. Clips of movies overhead as you look at the actual site. A bit expensive at $55 per person, but you can use the code "MRYCOM" and get $10 off per ticket. The bus was comfy and seemed new both inside and out. There are three stops so not much opportunity for pictures unless you snap through the window as you roll past. Our tour guide, Doug, was very knowledge and witty. I don't think young children would enjoy this. You get to get off the bus at the Pebble Beach Golf course and go through the clubhouse and onto the rise over the first tee. Also, make sure you have plenty of camera batteries...in the pro shop I had to pay $25 for 4...yikes.

I loved seeing scenes from movies filed in and around Monterey on the TV screens in the bus and then seeing the actual spots themselves. Not a good tour for kids or teenagers because most of the movies are very old with actors/actresses they wouldn't have heard of. I liked the 17 mile drive scenery and Pebble Beach too. This was highly enjoyable.

We wanted to do something different for our office, so our whole staff joined the tour as a team building activity. The movie trivia, movie clips, and spectacular views of the Monterey Peninsula.were enjoyed by all. We especially appreciated the break at The Tap Room at The Lodge at Pebble Beach where we had the most heavenly coconut cake. The coach was comfortable and afforded fantastic views of the coastline along the 17-Mile Drive. Highly recommended!

A Bus ride through the town of Monterey, and Pebble Beach-Carmel Area was magnificent alone, add the professionalisum of Owner and Operator, Doug with his well equipped Tour Bus it just can't be any better!
As we continue through the streets of Pacific Grove, Carmel, Pebble Beach, and Monterey, the list of movies that are shown on each personal screen as we are driven to each spot where the movie crew was activly filming, and Doug so elequently protrays the scenes of past popular movies.
This tour should be on the top of your list of things to do on the Monterey Peninsula.

What a great way to grasp the roots of Monterey, Carmel, Pebble Beach and the movies!
Doug is a professional guide who happens to be a hometown guy. From the moment you take off until he pulls up to end the trip it is jam packed with interesting information about movies we have all known. The precision of the scenes on the monitors in front of you is timed perfectly.
A great fun afternoon!
