Kenneth our bus driver was a great guide, very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a small group the day we went, which made photo stops much easier and the bus a lot roomier! We had just enough time for a stroll and some lunch in Monterey, we didn’t go to the aquarium. 17 Mile drive was an eye-opener, had enough time to take a great pic at the lone cypress, but we only had an hour in Carmel. We didn’t think we’d have enough time to do the mission, and we were rushing to make it to the beach and back for a pic. Would have preferred at that point to skip it and get home earlier as it was an expensive place and it had been a long day already. Kenneth the bus driver was definitely the point of difference with this trip over others we’ve been on.
