What to Expect
Travel along the scenic Pacific Coast Highway from San Francisco to Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea. This full-day tour takes you along California’s stunning coast to experience the beauty of Highway 1.

When you arrive at the Monterey peninsula, you will follow the 17-Mile Drive through Pebble Beach to visit the Lone Cypress, where your guide will stop for you to take photos of the rugged, beautiful coast.

As your tour continues, you will visit Monterey city where you can walk down Cannery Row, or visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
