See the beautiful California Coastline and 17 Mile Drive

We leave San Francisco in the morning for the approximately 2 hour drive to Monterey, California. This city, the first capital of California is older than San Francisco and offers much history and culture and scenic beauty. We visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium on Cannery Row, drive the 17 Mile drive at Pebble Beach, and spend a little time at the shops at charming Carmel. Then we head back to San Francisco and your hotel.


We will leave our hotel in the morning to travel to Monterey Bay Aquarium. We will spend 2 1/2 hours in the Cannery Row area for sightseeing and lunch. Then we will take our bus to 17 mile drive and enjoy the beautiful coastal scenery with a few photo stops along the way. Our tour will finish in Carmel for a short time of shopping. We will then return to San Francisco and the hotel.

A Recent Review of this tour

Sharon was a delight! Very knowledgeable about the area and attentive to our needs. She recommended a wonderful place for lunch off the beaten path that we would have never thought of, her timing was spot on when picking us up at all the sights we visited. Would use her again in a heartbeat and highly recommend this Monterey Day trip with her!
