Interesting and scenic stop. John called ahead and staff got us right in, around a long line. There was confusion about who paid for the aquarium; admission should be standard to avoid drama, delays. Bus did not have working toilet and John made frequent stops, but please stop at places with morr than one.bathroom!

Great sites along the coast, Monterey great- went to aquarium in 2hr break needed slightly longer to take it all in. Lovely place though. Carmel lots of great shopping! Would need to spend the day there too. But a great way to get a taster of the towns and see the coast without having to drive yourself.
