What a great tour this was. Yes, it’s a long day, but well worth it, to see the stunning coast on the way to Monterey and Carmel. Our fantastic bus driver/ tour guide Patrick was funny, entertaining, and full of local information on all the areas we passed through on the day. He absolutely made this trip for us. He is such a lovely person with a nice word to say about everyone. He pointed out all the highlights before we got to them so we could take photos. Advised us of the best places to eat in Monterey, and even included Pebble Beach Gold course into our trip for all the golf enthusiasts on board. We saw things we may otherwise have missed if it wasn’t for Patrick’s commentary. Loved his pointers and tips. Monterey and Carmel were fabulous with heaps of time for photo opportunities and shopping. Plus at the end of the tour we were dropped at our hotels. Thanks Patrick, awesome day. This tour company is professional and well organised.

We took 4 tours. City tour, Monterey & Carmel, Muir Woods and Sonoma & Napa wine tour. All were great. Patrick was the driver-guide on 2 of the tours. He was fantastic. I recommend you ask if Patrick is the driver on the tour. They pick you up at your hotel and drop you off at your hotel.

"Great day, great sights "

I did the Monterey-Carmel day tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. From start (motel pick up) to finish (drop off) the service was well organised and professional. Our driver was Patrick. I've been on sight seeing tours with other companies and am often bored silly with their endless talking. Patrick has got it right - he says what needs to be said, or shared, then let's you get on and enjoy the scenery. The buses are clean, as are the windows (for taking photos). That said, the one hour stop at the very exclusive and over-priced shopping centre at Carmel was disappointing and not what I expected to be seeing/doing there. (There was an option to quickly walk 3/4 mile down to the beach - and back again up hill - this wouldn't be suitable for some people). Apart from that, a great company to travel with.

Booked Muir Woods with Tower Tours. Very professional tour company. A must see Muir Woods. Very peaceful place to go to. Three different walking paths to walk. Look for the tree with a opening inside to take a picture. The driver Patrick was excellent and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Highly recommend tour company and tour

"Yosemite in a day"

Reviewed November 10, 2017
Unfortunately our program only allowed us a day for Yosemite. You need more than a day. However given this, we thoroughly enjoyed our tour and time in the park. Robert was our driver and guide to and from the park. His friendly and interested style saw the long journey to and from the park a delight, pointing out interesting historical and cultural places and events along the way. Robert ensured everyone made the most our this tour and We loved his choice of background music that punctuated his points of interest. He certainly knew his way around the park and made it easy for us to navigate our walk. Yosemite needs more than a day but this tour was well worth it.
