California Coastline: Monterey & Carmel

by Tower Tours Duration 11h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price was $105 Discount price is $90

Cruise along roads flanked by dramatic rock formations and pounding surf as you travel down the coast in a comfortable coach. Roll by championship golf courses, explore the past of Monterey's historic fishing industry, and uncover oceanfront towns where sprawling estates vie for million-dollar views.

From San Fran's fog-filled streets, head south and leave the city behind. Catch glimpses of the tech-savvy startups strewn throughout Silicon Valley and learn about the area's past as you reach Cannery Row. Once the site of a bustling fishing industry and the setting for several works by John Steinbeck, this salty detour is now filled with trendy cafes and fascinating museums.

Ride down Highway 1 and gaze out wide windows at the never-ending blue expanse of the Pacific Ocean. When you reach the winding lanes of 17-Mile Drive, get out your camera and start shooting. Snap photos of rugged headlands and mist-shrouded forests, and look for the Lone Cypress clutching wave-warped rocks near Pebble Beach.

Wrap up your coast-curated adventure with a chance to see the stone chapel of the Carmel Mission, the second mission established in California and an inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.
