See the best of Highway 1 headed south with a private guide


On this private tour, we leave the city early and head south down highway 101. We arrive in Monterey and check out Cannery Row and if time permits the world famous Aquarium. If this is not your cup of tea, we designate more time for Big Sur. Next, we cruise through 17-mile drive and the legendary Spy Glass, Spanish Bay, and Pebble Beach golf courses not to mention numerous scenic stops along the coast. Perhaps we lunch over looking the 18th? Onward to Carmel and its hobbit 'houses-by-the-sea'. If you'd like, we stroll through town. Maybe spot Clint Eastwood at the Hog's Breath. Next we drive the most dramatic stretch of the Pacific Coast Highway where California coastal mountains meet the Pacific. We'll pull over for cool bridges, big trees, waterfall and a beach.
This tour offers a lot of time flexibility for each of the main destinations. You will get to designate the amount of time at Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur depending on your interest which will be discussed with guide prior to arrival.

A Recent Review of this tour

Eric was a very friendly and flexible tour guide, allowing us to use our limited time to get a great overview of Half Moon Bay, Pebble Beach, and Carmel. As a San Francisco native, I even learned some new things and saw a new part of Carmel. Thank you for a great day!
