I did a solo trip to San Francisco and booked the Monterey-Carmel trip beforehand. This was my first trip to the area and really looked forward to Monterey. Our driver Vlad was great! He had a lot of knowledge about the area from SF all the way to Monterey-Carmel. He was entertaining and funny....exactly what you want. I booked Gray Line a couple days later to Sonoma! The buses were clean and the I felt safe as a solo traveler. I met some great people on the tour.
