Monterey & Carmel Full Day Tour
The tour starts by heading south on the famous Pacific Coast Highway, California Highway 1. We start on Monterey’s famous Cannery Row for a chance to stroll among the shops and grab a fresh seafood lunch. The tour will follow the coast through the beautiful little town of Pacific Grove on the way to the 17 Mile Drive. This famous road winds its way between magnificent homes and the spectacular coastline, between the greens and tees of world famous golf courses and among the last remaining forest of a rare species of the Monterey Cypress. We'll visit Steinbeck's Cannery Row in Monterey. Here you will have time to also visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
The drive finishes up at the Pebble Beach Village. Upon arrival in the enchanted town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, you are free to explore the boutique shops on Ocean Avenue or take a walk on the white sandy beach. If there is time and interest, we can visit the historic Carmel Mission. This tour also has optional short stops in Half Moon Bay or Santa Cruz. We head back through Silicon Valley, the high tech capital of the world, before returning to San Francisco.
