Great All Day Coastal Tour
Jul 2021
Enjoyed the tour down the coast and seeing a lot of different scenery. Doug was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of interesting tidbits. This is a great trip to see a lot of California scenery outside of San Francisco.

Monterey
Overall the tour was good, but on the website it said that there were power outlets and wi-fi on the bus. We had neither of those on the bus we were on. Also, the restroom stops were terrible. They were dirty, and only had 1 or 2 toilets. On a positive note, the scenery was beautiful.

Excellent Trip Made Even Better By Antonio
Jul 2021
BEYOND excellent! Antonio is a gem, personality plus, excellent driver. His knowledge of both San Francisco and the entire State is more than impressive and shows a deep love and respect for history which he joyfully shares with all. The tour itself was fantastic, but it was Antonio who made it personal and extra special. As you can tell, this retired couple (who know SF pretty well themselves) cannot say enough good things about this impressive young gentleman. The trip is beautiful and well-worth the money, an all-day delight with a wonderful driver/guide/and knowledgeable California native and EXPERT to lead the way. Thank You, Antonio! Well done, young SIR!
