That tour was really almost everything i had hoped for, the only thing that i did not like is that admissions were not included, but to be honest it was really worth it, especially the amazing Monterey Bay Aquarium, it is such an amazing place, my kids were so happy. We also really enjoyed the 17 Miles Drive and Roaring Camp. The hotel was really clean and cozy. It was such a great experience.

Trip was great in general, had great time at 17 Miles Drive. Tour Guide was useful and careful about every one taking visit.Travel time was more than touring but fun, yet for solo travelers it will be a certain fun time. The accommodation was very good. We enjoyed the tour very much. The Tour people are very well organized and punctual. They know the routes and spots. In this particular tour the main it is worth investing time. Golden Bus has been very reasonable in terms of pricing and of course helpful when it comes to dealing with the costumers.

The tour was very enjoyable. At the end of the tour we felt it was worth the long travel. We had to thank our tour guide for engaging us with her stories and quiz questions during our bus travel. Thanks Goldenbustours.

Tour date June 19 2018. The tour guide is really helpful and provides a lot of information. The bus driver drove well and was always punctual .The bus was good and needed some improvements. The hotel was good Hence the tour became a little tiring A lot of disturbance in the bus by a single loud family (not kids but adults) were disturbing.
