Excellent tour, covered all the major spots along California coast from Santa Cruz to Monterey to Carmel by the sea with important stops along the coast with appropriate time to take photos. Our your guide Doug and river Jason were pretty amazing and Doug has a thorough knowledge and passion and he was did an excellent job explaining all the important history on the tour. 17 Mile drive and pebble Beach were pretty amazing and beautiful. In Carmel, if you do not plan to shop, consider walking to the beach, it's a 0.5 mile walk slightly tedious walk (considering all the elevations) from the bus stop but it's worth it. In Monterey, aquarium will always be sold out when you arrive unless you dont book it prior, so 2 he is a little long, but considering it in life's lunch stop too, it totally makes sense. Apart from cannery row, consider taking a walk across lovers point trail in Pacific Grove which is just next to cannery row, it's pretty scenic.

The guide was very passionate and super nice. He taught us a lot, a lot of stories and all with humor. The bus ride is very long even if the guide does everything to make it pleasant: stories, culture, music, jokes and even movies. Otherwise, the places chosen are truly amazing. Yosemite Park is unique and I think this tour really captures all of its splendor. My only regret that I didn't have time to stop more (but hey, it's the time to not come home too late). What I liked the most was the view from the tunnel as well as the view from the bottom of the valley (last stop before departure). Also, the place for lunch in front of the waterfalls is just unique. As for the agency that takes charge, they are top, available and really take you to the hotel and bring you back there: which is comfortable anyway.

Our trip was amazing! Denise was an AMAZING tour guide! She gave so much detail and enthusiasm on our trip even at 8AM. She was super nice and answered all questions with a smile. We really enjoyed our trip and will 10/10 recommend! Thank you again Denise!

Loved this tour! We learned so much about the area from Alex. He’s a charismatic guide with a sense of humor. We had beautiful views along the coast. Highly recommend!

Our guide Mike was super professional all the time and our whole trip was really fun with him! I'd definitely recommend this tour to other friend!
