    Overall it was a good experience would like to stay a bit longer at Pebble Beach & Carmel. The San Francisco day was excellent. I would skip the City Hall and would prefer more a stop at Golden Gate Park or at Muir Woods. The Yosemite day was great the only problem we had was an Austrian couple was late by 25 minutes from our first El Capitan stop. This made coming back to Los Angeles very late.

What people are saying about Santa Barbara

This express tour is the best way to see the best CA offers quickly.

This tour was all around fantastic... the sights, staff, and fellow passengers. Dorit, our tour guide, was funny, friendly, and made our time together all the more enjoyable with her exceptional photography skills. My friends found it hard to believe that we did so much in three days. I don't know any other tour that includes visits to all the major landmarks in Santa Barbara, Carmel, Solvang, San Francisco, and Yosemite. The visit to Yosemite was what I was looking forward to the most and it did not disappoint. We saw Bridal Veil, Tunnel View, Half Dome, El Capitan and had time to do a hike and have lunch. The group of people were super chill, very respectful and friendly towards each other. Even when unexpected situations occurred (e.g. no translator for the Italian couple, 'dry breakfast' at the Clarion), Dorit handled it quickly and professionally. Sam was an excellent, safe driver and such a gentleman. I'd take this tour again.

everything as described, uncomplicated tour guide

The short trip was exhausting but very nice. The services described were performed without any restrictions. For our group of 11 people with different nationalities (Italy, France, Israel, Germany, Canada) there were 3 travel guides on board - just great. The tour guide was typically American, friendly and courteous. There was enough time for breaks and visits. This short trip is recommended without any restrictions. But you should be prepared that, due to the known distances, it can be very exhausting.

Simply great!

This three day tour of California was really just great! Dorith and Giovanni showed us the most fantastic places with great opportunities to take great vacation photos. It was a great atmosphere and a very pleasant atmosphere at all times. At the end of the trip I was really wistful that I didn't book the 5-day tour. Great!
