My parents were just so determined to board on this tour while we were already in the city of San Francisco. Thank God I had my iPod charged because of the much traveling. To be honest, that was just heart-touching and refreshing that we toured the 17-Mile Drive. It was good to see all the luxurious attractions along the pacific shoreline, it made me wish that I own those heaven-like mansions. Red Roof Inn is the best lodging option because of their excellent service. Plus the Monterey bay aquarium now exhibits those dangerous lethal sharks which I am really afraid of. The tour was full of excitement.

I would start with the Napa Valley journey at here we were being driven on our final day. I didn’t think that the famous brands of wines were prepared at the Napa Valley; although it is a shocking fact that the people are running those wine businesses from quite a long time. I don’t blame the tour service for the unbearable exhaustion which I had to bear because of my pretty low stamina. My kids were really excited at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and I think that’s the best visiting site in the area because there were too many people who came to visit those aquariums. It’s been an affordable and best sort of a tour that one could have in three days with first-class accommodations, service, and visiting sites. Appreciable!

The best thing in that tour is we were picked up directly from the airport, and we were also dropped off at the airport, that was really helpful for us. we really enjoyed almost all the places we visited like Monterey Bay Aquarium, Fisherman‘s Wharf, 17 Mile Drive, Pacific Coastline, Lone Cypress, Pebble Beach Golf Clubs, Carmel, and Napa Valley. I just wish if food and attractions were included, that would have been really wonderful .

I'm happy we took this tour. This visit was truly moderate for a major family with children. We always needed to visit 17 Miles and this was the ideal chance. Hotels were better than average and transport was ride was comfortable.
