What people are saying about Pebble Beach, California

A wonderful tour, scenically wonderful. The bus driver Thomas was fantastic. He told a lot about the sights and the landscape and gave good tips. Although the day was long, it was definitely worth it. We don't want to miss the day.

The tour was very well organised. Danilo, our driver and guide, was extremely helpful and patient. He addressed all our needs and was super energetic throughout the whole trip
