For our anniversary, we chose to spend the weekend in Pacific Grove. We've been to the PG/Monterey area several times and were looking for something new to do. My husband is a big Discovery Channel/History Channel/NatGeo fan so an historical tour seemed like something he would enjoy. We had a great walk with Thom, learned tons of things we didn't know about the Monterey area and the history of California in general (we are both transplants from the mid West).

Really excellent tour and a lot of fun!

We would highly recommend the Monterey Walking Tour to everyone visiting the lovely City. Thom has a great personality, good sense of humor and REALLY knows his stuff. He welcomed the many questions we asked, and always answered with a smile. He obviously loves the City, and loves showing it off to visitors....it really shows.

I thoroughly enjoyed Tom's Monterey Walking Tour. He brought the lives of the early inhabitants to life with all their quirks and scandals in a well paced tour that was filled with history and humor. His easy delivery and wry comments kept us interested throughout the morning. It is definitely worth including this tour in your itinerary at Monterey as it gives you a whole new view of this wonderful, historic city.

We found Tom on trip advisor. All of the positive information we read proved true. Tom really brings the story of Monterey together - from the Spanish, to Mexican, to American periods. He brings his iPad and frequently shows maps and pictures to give visual support of his narrative. Well worth fitting this tour into your trip to Monterey.

Tom brings the Monterey area history to life on this fascinating walking tour of old Monterey. He brings a wealth of knowledge and ties together the people and events through the Spanish, Mexican, and American occupation of the region.
