What to Expect
We offer complimentary private pickup /drop-off and meet and greet in the lobby of your hotel or at

your designated pickup location in San Francisco, Santa Clara, San Mate county, San Jose and Monterey. Your private and personal tour guide will be holding a placard with our company’s logo and your name on it. The length of the tour will be adjusted accordingly as we are based in San Francisco.

After a complimentary pick-up at your hotel (anywhere between San Francisco and Carmel), you will depart south and cruise along California State Route 1, on the dramatic and rugged coastline of the Pacific Ocean. This unique and exhilarating drive will take you through the nation’s most scenic areas, from San Francisco to Monterey and Carmel. On the road, admire the Pacific Coast’s views, wildlife, and breathtaking scenery. Take a walk to hidden beaches and see endangered species, including sea otters, harbor seals, and maybe even whales or dolphins. You will travel through amazing sights, coastal towns, and attractions, passing Pacifica or Half Moon Bay, San Gregorio State Beach, Pescadero State Beach and Pigeon Point Lighthouse, Greyhound Rock County Park, and Davenport. You’ll visit Santa Cruz and its famous surfing overlook or drive via Capitola By-the-Sea as we head south passing Zmudowski State Beach Park or Moss Landing State Beach, Marina State Beach, Monterey Fisherman’s Wharf or Cannery Row, the 17-Mile Drive; and Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Delight in Monterey’s rich history and experience the bay’s vibrant lifestyle and sweeping views, running along Fisherman’s Wharf and John Steinbeck’s Cannery Row. Further explore Monterey’s seaside restaurants, quaint shops, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, museums, and wine tasting rooms.

Following Monterey, embark on the scenic 17-Mile Drive from Pacific Grove, all the way to Pebble Beach and Carmel-by-the-Sea, and enjoy magnificent scenery, including the Spanish Bay, Sunset Drive and Point Pinos Lighthouse, Asilomar Beach, the Bird’s and Seal’s Rock Overlook, Lone Cypress, and the world-renowned Pebble Beach Resort and Golf Links where you may having lunch. Visit the enchanting village of Carmel-by-the-Sea, which is known for its stunning scenery and rich artistic history, and then drop off at your hotel.
