We were thrilled to have Thomas as our tour guide once again since he was great on a previous tour earlier in the week. He did not disappoint. The tour was great, the points of interest well explained and we throughly enjoyed the coastline, Monterey, Pebble beach and Carmel. The one knock against the day was that a few people onboard were taking calls with and without speaker, and the calls, constant ringing and notifications were distracting. No fault of the tour company but if people are reading this review, put your phone on silence and respect other people’s enjoyment of the tour.

Doug, our tour guide, is such a wealth of knowledge. It is quite a ride from San Francisco to Monterey and back and he kept us entertained with history and fun facts there and back. He keys into people's preferences and accommodates them by pointing out either places of interest to them or steering them to particular area for further exploration.Both Monterey and Carmel are beautiful to see. It was fun visiting the places I'd only known heard of through TV or movies.
