A terrific way to see the beautiful California coastline and bring home memorable photos. Multiple stops for strolling and sightseeing in Monterrey & Carmel. The motor coach was large, roomy with charging outlets. The driver Antonio made all the difference in the day long trip. A California native who added a lot of history and local color. A great experience for the price! Highly recommend this trip. Be prepared for a long day!
