Reviewed April 6, 2014

Took family of six to appreciate the bay, its wildlife and older time history, views, architecture, and courtesy. Good value.

“This is a not to be missed tour!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Eleven hours , but lots of stops. Beautiful scenery, interesting facts and trivia! Cannery Row was especially impressive for literary value and history. Nice little town. Great aquarium ( once again you need more time to explore this area). Pebble Beach Golf resort!

What is not to like. Just a feast for your eyes and a must see for anyone that loves nature. Italy move over.

“Who wouldn't love Monterey?”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

I'm from Southern California and have been blessed to travel to many places in the world.
And I must say that Monterey and California's central and northern coast are still among the most beautiful places on Earth, IMO. The vistas, the history, the literary culture of the town and its surrounding environs (a la Steinbeck) are truly amazing. So peaceful, so quaint.
And not terribly far from what I consider to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world, San Francisco.
Okay, so I'm a Southern California native, but I do have to give it to the north. :)
Southern Cal has some awesome areas as well, including some beautiful coastlines, but Norcal is truly breathtaking.

“Spectacular sightseeing!”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

This is such a wonderful area to walk and just enjoy the ocean views. So relaxing to watch the waves crashing in, birds swooping and seals sunbathing. There is so much to see! Fun to walk on the rocks and enjoy the sea animals and ocean waves.
