Caesar is excellent. The main tour (supposed to be just a Monterey & Carmel Tour) extended to include visits to: the Golden Gate Bridge (in a secret spot with the best view); a hotdog place in Silicon Valley; Yoda's status in Lucas Films, sea lion viewing along the freeway from Monterey. You get so much more than what you paid for. Plus Caesar knows his craft (history, anecdotes, info on the places). This is what private tour viewing is about, as compared to group tours. Go with Caesar.
