Monterey and Carmel Tour

I had a great day. the driver was friendly and knowledgeable and the coach was comfortable. Monterey was beautiful. I7 mile drive and the coastal scenery were great and we had photo stops. I was not as impressed with Carmel and I would have preferred a little more time in Monterey and less in Carmel. ...Kathleen C., United Kingdom – See more reviews
