  • San Francisco: Monterey and Carmel Tour

    1. San Francisco: Monterey and Carmel Tour

    Begin your tour by traveling south on the famous Pacific Coast Highway, California Highway 1. Head to Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea. At your first rest stop in Davenport, you will have a chance to take a selfie with the whole Pacific as your backdrop.  At Monterey, you will have 2 hours on your own to explore. You can visit the world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, rent a kayak or paddleboard, hike along the coast, or take a bike to roam. You can also stroll among the quaint boutiques and art shops along the historic Cannery Row. Grab a seafood lunch at Old Fisherman’s Wharf.  Enjoy another eyeful of Pacific beauty along the scenic 17-Mile Drive through Del Monte Forest and take photographs of the hardy Lone Cyprus Tree. This famous road winds its way by magnificent homes and the spectacular coastline, between the greens and tees of world famous golf courses, and among the last remainin...

    Excellent tour, covered all the major spots along California coast from Santa Cruz to Monterey to Carmel by the sea with important stops along the coast with appropriate time to take photos. Our your guide Doug and river Jason were pretty amazing and Doug has a thorough knowledge and passion and he was did an excellent job explaining all the important history on the tour. 17 Mile drive and pebble Beach were pretty amazing and beautiful. In Carmel, if you do not plan to shop, consider walking to the beach, it's a 0.5 mile walk slightly tedious walk (considering all the elevations) from the bus stop but it's worth it. In Monterey, aquarium will always be sold out when you arrive unless you dont book it prior, so 2 he is a little long, but considering it in life's lunch stop too, it totally makes sense. Apart from cannery row, consider taking a walk across lovers point trail in Pacific Grove which is just next to cannery row, it's pretty scenic.

  • From San Francisco: Silicon Valley Tech Tour

    4. From San Francisco: Silicon Valley Tech Tour

    Explore the past and future of Silicon Valley on an exciting tour of some of the most famous tech startup companies. Benefit from pickup at your hotel in central San Francisco, and then travel by air-conditioned bio-fuel minibus to the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. See some of the first mega computers and commercially-produced machines, as well as classic games like Pac Man and Atari to stir up some childhood memories. Learn more about the computer revolution and information age, and get an idea of where it is leading us to in the future. Break for lunch Palo Alto, and then visit the Google Campus and gift shop of the company's corporate headquarters. Check-in at the Facebook complex in Menlo Park, before heading back to San Francisco for drop-off at your hotel.

    I really liked the experience, the driver was very friendly. You have to keep in mind that you can not enter most of the buildings (after all, they are workplaces); but you do get to visit the technology campuses and take photos. Apple has a pretty nice experience in its store and the computer museum is very interesting(the ticket is included on the tour price). The only thing I didn't like much is that the company basically forces you to be at a hotel for pickup (I requested to be picked from one but they told me they would pick me from another one).

Such a fun and interesting experience!! The house is certainly worth visiting; there’s so much history and stories behind almost every part of it and it was fascinating to hear about what Sarah Winchester went through and why her house is the way it is. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant to listen to, as well as funny when needed to be. Would highly recommend this activity to anyone visiting Northern California. The location is very convenient and easy access as well (and it has a parking lot which is always nice).

Had such a great experience. The Winchester Mystery house was on my list of things to see and it did not disappoint. So much to explore and see beyond our guided tour. Savanna was wonderful and made sure to point out all the strange oddities. Highly recommend!

Our guide Mike was super professional all the time and our whole trip was really fun with him! I'd definitely recommend this tour to other friend!

Wonderful experience! Our Guide made the Tour extra-special and fun! She deserves a bonus!!

I have learned a lot about San fransisco and the other towns around. Very interesting.
