Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The thing I didn’t like was that it wasn’t enough time spent in Monterey only 1 hour and 45 minutes but given that while he was driven before he got to the stop to let us off, that was unfair to me that needed to be adjusted some more time in Monterey then Carmel. Overall I love the trip and the scenery

    We had an amazing experience with our tour guide Shels! The e-bike was easy to ride and had plenty of stops to see all the view points. I highly recommend experiencing 17 Mile Drive with Mad Dog!!

    We love Carmel but wanted to try something different this time, and this tour did not disappoint! Bonnie was awesome and taught us about the food spots and some of the town history. We loved having a native of the area leading us! She even helped us spur a business idea! We will be back for more!

    Overall, a very nice experience. The cottages were totally charming! We are locals and it was something different to do in Carmel. When we had to cross Ocean Avenue, it was a little dangerous because there was no crosswalk. There should be a warning that some parts of the walk are steep. People not in shape shouldn’t attempt this tour. The guide was really helpful and warned if you went the wrong way. Those in decent shape should try it once!

    Our welcoming , friendly and fun tour guide Toby took us on a 3 hour experience that was fantastic. Toby gave us an insight into Carmel-by-the-Sea history on our journey to visit 3 fabulous tasting rooms. The wines were exceptional and Toby was extremely knowledgeable throughout.
    We would highly recommend this experience.

    Steve is a great guide and traveling in a vintage VW bus was fun. Lots of wine to taste, our favorite was Big Sur Vineyards!

    We did this guided tour with Gael, during my son's spring break and It was the best thing out of our itinerary.
    Gael allowed us to experience the charm and uniqueness of Carmel in a very special way. I never knew such a small place was so big in arts, culture, charm. She would go in thru buildings and or streets and surprised us with beautiful quant spots to seat at to have coffee, read a book or simply just relax.
    Gael I cannot thank you enough for making this experience so unique, we are planning to go back with the rest of the family soon.

    I found we didn’t have enough time in Monterey and Carmel. I would rather we could spend half a day in Monterey and half a day in Carmel.

    My sister and I booked this class for a novel activity during our weekend getaway - the whole experience was so lovely and cozy. We also brought some wine and Cheryl (our MasterChef) provided the glasses - we had so much fun!!

    My sister is the baker in the bunch and she found the class very educational and useful and she has since made macarons at home for the whole family which we all loved of course.

    I highly recommend this experience for anyone looking for a hard-ons experience that comes with snacks at the end 😁.

    Our 6-hour tour with Carlos was wonderful in every way. In addition to providing informed commentary on everything we saw, he was very helpful in recommending stops along the way. We had lunch at Spanish Bay Inn with a spectacular view of the Pacific. He was happy to add a stop at Carmel Mission, which we requested. And on our final stop at Pebble Beach we enjoyed sipping drinks overlooking the 18th green.
    Not only was Carlos so accommodating, but so too was company owner, Ben, helping us to restructure our tour when road closures on Pacific Coast Highway made it impossible to get to the original tour schedule.
    It was a most enjoyable day and we highly recommend California Pacific Excursions

    This is a well curated tour with many spectacular views and charming stops at Monterey, Carmel, Pebble Beach and The Big Sur. Our guide, Pep , enhanced the experience with her knowledge and insights and above all a very friendly, flexible and warm disposition.
