We didn’t care for the movie tour booked through Princess. The bus was packed, seats small. It was very hard to see, especially without a window seat. It was raining too. The guide was knowledgeable.

We have friends that live in Monterey. They picked us up and took us down Hwy 1 to Pebble Beach for lunch. Caramel is a good visit as well as Cannery Row. Beyond that, the ship does not dock, they anchor and transport you to shore by the life saving boats. That was pretty cool.

They have to use tenders to get to the city. Beautiful place. Walked down the wharf and around the town.

Very foggy early, but it did start to clear off around noon. We took the 17-Mile Drive Monterey and Carmel City Tour, which we liked very much. My husband is a golfer, so he enjoyed getting to see Pebble Beach Golf Club (#18 green) up close and personal! We just wished it had not been so foggy! It would also have been nice to have had more than an hour in Carmel, as it took that long to get lunch and left no time to walk around.

We tendered in and had a restful stroll around. Clam chowder was delicious at the fisherman's wharf.

I highly recommend the Sea Car Tours. Rental office is Walking distance from the port in Portola Hotel. Rent the yellow car for an hour and drive to all the points of interest along the coast.

I loved Monterey! We went on kayaks and saw so many seals. Before and after our kayak we explored the downtown and touristy areas and had an amazing amount of fun. Will go back again!
Movie tour excursion was great! My husband was less than thrilled at my excursion choice, but in the end he loved it and was recommending it to others. We had the privilege of having the movie tour company owner as our guide! Many beautiful photo stops and time to walk around Pebble Beach golf course. Monterey was quaint...we enjoyed the cannery, local pizza place, and an ice cream shop. Kept our eyes open for a chance Clint Eastwood sighting. Didn't see him though.
I highly recommend the Sea Car Tour. It’s located in Portola Hotel walking distance from cruise port. You can rent the little yellow car for $65 for one hour. The GPS that comes with the car guides you to several points of interest. It attracts a lot of attends your drives it around town.
