San Francisco - Santa Cruz - Monterey - 17-Mile Drive - Carmel-by-the-Sea - San Francisco
Summary of The Day: You'll start the day traveling south on the famous Pacific Coast Highway, California Highway 1. After a stop in Santa Cruz, a rest break, and optional photo stops along the way, you will set foot on Monterey's famous Cannery Row for a chance to stroll among the shops and grab a fresh seafood lunch. If you bring your own lunch, you might be able to squeeze in a short trip to the world famous Monterey Aquarium (admission not included).
After lunch, you will follow the coast through the beautiful little town of Pacific Grove on the way to the 17-Mile Drive. This famous road winds its way between magnificent homes and the spectacular coastline, between the greens and tees of world famous golf courses like Spyglass Hill, and among the last remaining forest of a rare species of trees, the Monterey Cypress, which is sculpted by relentless pacific breezes into fanciful shapes. The Lone Cypress is a very poignant example of one of these hardy trees hanging on to life (with the help of human engineering) in a seemingly impossible location.
The drive finishes up at the Pebble Beach Village, where you can visit the Pro Shop and see the famous 18th Green
Upon arrival in the enchanted town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, you can explore the boutique shops on Ocean Avenue or be dazzled by the white sandy beach. If there is time and interest, we can visit the historic Carmel Mission as a last stop. Our Monterey Explorer Tour also has optional short stops in Half Moon Bay or Santa Cruz.
Don't forget this is a semi-private tour, meaning that the itinerary can be customized to your own interests.
