This is a long day but it is worth the trip. Beautiful scenery on the trip to Monterey with a few stops along the way. Only complaint is that I would have loved to be able to stop even for 5 minutes along some of the shoreline as you approach Monterey Bay. My son did the Monterey Aquarium while I shopped in the town. He very much enjoyed the Aquarium and the shopping was ample and there was plenty of dining choices for lunch. I am not a golf fan but I enjoyed touring the Pebble Beach Golf course - very pretty. There was only an hour to explore Carmel and we were very tired by the time we got there so we did not get to the ocean but instead explored the eclectic art areas. Very nice.

We had a marvellous day starting in Union Square at 8am. The coach was very comfortable and the weather was sunny and warm. Our driver, Randy, was fantastic and his commentary was very informative. He made various stops for stunning views. We would strongly recommend this trip as it is outstanding and good value.

this rated four stars because of the comfort and the destinations. - to Monterey/Carmel . the driver (Marillo? Dellillo?) was happy but spent a lot of time saying hello to all travellers - up to ten times, and gave us little information about where we were headed - more "how would you like to go to.....(gap).....Carmel?".
