Tours from Solvang to Hearst Castle?

We'll be in Solving at the end of March and wonder if there are any tours that run from Solvang to Hearst Castle. Any information will be appreciated.

Unless somebody knows differently I don't think you will find tours from Solvang to Hearst Castle. If you will have a car the distance is about 110 miles.

I'm afraid Puter is correct. There just isn't enough demand from Solvang to make this worth any tour company's time, gas, etc.

Driving yourself allows you the freedom to stop along the way and stretch your legs in the beach towns scattered along the coast: Pismo Beach, Morro Bay, Cayucos, Cambria.

Thank you for the speedy reply. I guess we'll have to find our way driving up there.

It's easy!

Take Highway 246 west (Mission Drive) to Highway 101 north to San Luis Obispo (68 miles). Take the Highway 1/Morro Bay/Hearst Castle exit and follow the signs. Turn right on Santa Rosa Street (Business Highway 1) and continue 42 miles to Hearst Castle. It's a beautiful drive and well worth it.
