Full description

Experience Monterey like a local exploring the twists and turns of its iconic highway, 17 Mile Drive. Cruise along this scenic route that hugs the California coastline from Pebble Beach and Pacific Grove up to the Monterrey Peninsula.

Enjoy this door-to-door experience with Evan, an agricultural scientist and specialist in viticulture (grape growing). Learn about Monterey's wine culture as well as fun facts about its history as you stop at points of interest such as Lover's Point Park, Bird Rock, and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

Have your camera ready for the drive through scenic Carmel-by-the-Sea and travel back in time standing in front of the 200-year-old Lone Cypress, one of the most photographed trees in America. After a half day of sightseeing, the tour will conclude at your hotel or accommodation in Monterey.

This tour is great - Very well planned and Evan is very knowledgable. I've visited all of these areas before multiple times and still learnt so much about the history. Evan also customized the tour a bit for us after learning our preferences and suggested nice places to visit/ eat at post the tour. Overall had a fun day and would highly recommend this and any other tour Evan runs.

All the areas we visited - Monterey, Pacific Grove and 17 mile drive/ Carmel-by-the-sea are so incredibly beautiful! Evan was a great host and has much knowledge about the area - He shared the history, the quirks and some great suggestions for lunch/ wine tasting post the tour. Finding parking in these areas on a weekend is usually stressful - A guided tour takes all that way - Would highly recommend for locals and visitors! Must do!
