Rick went out of his way to make sure we stayed dry during a rain soaked tour. He changed his route slightly to avoid traffic and answered all our questions. He even gave us suggestions for places to eat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for posting a review. I am glad that, despite, the rain, you enjoyed your tour of Monterey and Carmel. When you next head this way, please let me know if I may be of some help.

Rick was just great!! There were two adults and 2 15 year olds , we went from San Fran to Santa Cruz and we so enjoyed the day!!! He was really pleasant, funny, very knowledgeable about the area, terrific driver and car was immaculate. My family would highly recommend Rick. Thank you....
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm glad you enjoyed the tour. It's too bad we ran out of time and didn't get to see the redwoods. You'll just have to come back! Thanks for taking the time to post a review and for the kind words.

Definitely a 5 star tour! Rick picked us up at our San Francisco Hotel at 8am. The tour starts by taking beautiful Highway 1 with many stops for picture taking. Rick was very knowledgeable of the interesting history of this area.The Monterey 17 mile drive was wonderful, stopping for pictures and shopping. We had lunch at Pebble Beach with a view of the 18th hole followed by some additional shopping in Carmel. The trip back to San Francisco was along Highway 101 which also was nice, getting back at 6pm.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am glad you enjoyed your tour of Monterey and Carmel. I think the drive along CA Route 1 is one of the most scenic drives in the U.S. You'll have to come back and see the portion through Big Sur and/or along the Mendocino and Sonoma County coast.

My wife and I could not have been happier with Rick's service. This was a special three day trip down the Big Sur highway. Rick was waiting for us at the San Jose airport when we arrived and shepherded us all the way to our departure from San Luis Obispo two days later. He was knowledgable, polite, and attentive. We recommend him without reservation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to post a review. It's most appreciated. I am glad the two of you enjoyed your tour along the Central California coast. I am especially glad that the weather cooperated so you could enjoy the magnificent views.
Rick was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgeable about just everything you would possible want to know - but at the same time allowing you the privacy of touring in a small group and doing what you wanted to without any dramas. Would definitely recommend to anyone wishing to have a relaxing yet fun-filled trip. Thanks Rick!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review. I am glad you enjoyed your tour of Monterey and Carmel. You'll have to come back some time to take the drive through Big Sur!

What a wonderful trip. Rick picked us up at out hotel in San Francisco and took us on a fantastic route down the Pacific coast to our hotel in Monterey. We took in Big Sur, a brilliant little bakery en route, a superb restaurant, Nepenthe, for lunch with breathtaking views. Onwards to carmel and the 17 mile drive and a stop off to see the Monarch butterflies at Pacific Grove. Rick was knowledgeable and friendly and able to take us to locations we would have missed on our own. Great trip, thanks Rick
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: George, I am glad you enjoyed the tour. You were lucky with the picture-perfect weather. Thanks for taking the time to post a review. It is most appreciated. Rick
