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.

We have visited Monterey many, many times, and have even gone on other tours. We really enjoyed this one because he told us things we didn't already know, and saw buildings we had never seen before. Tom, our guide, was excellent, and chose to show us many different types of buildings.

The Monterey tour was great. The guide, Tom, was very informative and brings with a historical flavor to the tour. He is entertaining and has an uplifting spirit to the tour. He will take your questions throughout the 2 hours. Highly recommend.
