Randy was a great guide - funny, great driver, and knew a lot of information to share. Monterey was great! however, we had no idea we would stop so long - or even visit - Pebble Beach Golf course. It meant we only had about 45 minutes in Carmel. we are not golfers so the time there was wasted on us. I'm sure golfers would enjoy it - but why let it cut into time in the towns you advertise the trip is about? The scenery on the 17 mile drive (and the trip in and out of San Francisco) was terrific!

It was a long day but well worth it. So much beautiful sights to see along the way. Lots of bathroom and photo stops on the way. The driver was a wealth of info and so into it. He had so much to share and we really thought he made the day. We did the trip on 9-16-19 and our driver was white middle aged man with a pony tail. He lived in Oakland. I waited too long to write the review and forgot his name. I hope you know who this is. We thought he made our trip so much better than it could of been. A couple didn't come back to the bus when we were supposed to leave and he waited quite a while. He then started driving to find them. We did and they were mixed up on what time to be back at the bus. I said something to the nature of missing time to see something on our our trip. He told me that wouldn't happen. I am sure he could of cut our trip short due to the lost time but he didn't. If you a golfer you will really enjoy Pebble Beach. I loved it and I don't play but it had much more meaning to my husband. We didn't go to the aquarium because we felt we didn't have enough time. If we had more time there we would have but we had never been there.
