Ride down Pacific Coast Highway 1 from San Francisco to Monterey & Carmel in a comfortable private SUV. See California with a Bay Area born local who has a decade of professional experience. Unlike many limo tours, clear English is spoken.

Pass Santa Cruz, a lighthouse and marine sanctuaries on the way. We will try and spot wildlife like shorebirds, sea otters, whales and seals. Take free time at Cannery Row for shopping, lunch or a visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Experience the scenic coastal road through Pacific Grove and 17 Mile Drive. Pass beaches, seaside mansions and the historic Pebble Beach Golf Course. If you are a fan, feel free to stroll out to the 18th hole viewing area or look at the old Hollywood photos on the walls of the clubhouse.

Our last big stop is Carmel-By-The-Sea. Enjoy the cottage style architecture while shopping on Ocean Ave. Walk on the beach or enjoy a snack in one of the many cafes.
