ご滞在のホテルに(サンフランシスコとカーメルの間のいずれかの場所)無料でお迎えに上がった後、風光明媚な州道1号線を南へと向かいながら、海岸山脈が太平洋と交わるドラマチックで険しい海岸線の風景を堪能します。この他では味わえない爽快なドライブでは、国内で最も景色の美しいルートを通って、サンフランシスコからモントレー、カーメルへと向かいます。道中、太平洋岸の海景や息をのむような風景、野生動物の姿を堪能いただけます。秘境にあるビーチを歩きながら、ラッコやゴマフアザラシ、クジラ、イルカなどの絶滅の危機に瀕している動物と出会えます。見事な眺めを楽しみながら海岸町や名所を通って、パシフィカまたはハーフムーンベイを過ぎ、サングレゴリオ・ステート・ビーチ、ペスカデロ・ステート・ビーチとピジョンポイント灯台、グレイハウンド・ロック・カントリーパーク、そしてダベンポートへと向かいます。サンタクルーズと有名なサーフィング展望台に足を運ぶか、カピトラ・バイ・ザ・シーを通って南へと進み、ズムドウスキ州立海浜公園またはモスランディングステート・ビーチ、マリーナ・ステート・ビーチ、モントレーのフィッシャーマンズワーフまたはカーメル・ロウ、17マイルドライブ、カーメル・バイ・ザ・シーへと向かいます。

モントレーの歴史あふれる町並みを堪能し、湾岸沿いの活気あふれるライフスタイルに触れたり、景色を楽しんだり、フィッシャーマンズワーフとジョン・スタインベックのキャナリー・ロウの間をランニングしたりしましょう。さらに、モントレーの海岸沿いのレストランや趣のある店、モントレー湾水族館、博物館、ワインテイスティングルームを訪れます。

モントレーを訪れた後、風光明媚な17マイルドライブを通ってパシフィックグローブからペブルビーチ、カーメル・バイ・ザ・シーへと向かいます。道中、スパニッシュベイ、サンセットドライブとポイントピノス灯台、アシロマビーチ、鳥やアザラシが見える岩の展望台、ローン・サイプレス、そして世界的に有名なペブルビーチリゾートとゴルフリンクスの壮大な景色をお楽しみいただけます。モントレーまたはカーメルの代わりに、ペブルビーチリゾートで昼食を摂ることも可能です。

カーメル・バイ・ザ・シーの魅力的な町を訪れます。見事な景色と芸術の歴史があふれていることで有名な洗練された都会風の町で、世界有数の芸術家や彫刻家、写真家、作家にインスピレーションを与えてきて、今も著名人がここに住んでいます。また、世界トップクラスのショッピングスポットとして知られている他、素敵なレストランや色鮮やかなコテージ、そして歴史あふれるカーメル・ミッションの側にあるクリント・イーストウッドのミッション・ランチをはじめ、折衷的で美しい邸宅があることでも有名です。クリント・イーストウッドは、1986~1988年にカーメル・バイ・ザ・シーの無党派市長を務め、ドリス・デイと共に時代遅れで理に合わない町の条例や法律を変えました。例えば、かつてカーメルでは公共の路上でアイスクリームを売ったり食べたりすることが禁じられていましたが、クリント・イーストウッドがこれを変えました。カーメルには他にも興味深い点があります。チェーンレストランが禁止されていたり、通りの多くに住所がないのに各家には名前があったりする他、かつてはハイヒールを着用するのに許可が必要でした!

日帰りツアーで限られた時間の中で観光するよりも、2日間のカスタムツアーをご検討ください。モントレーやカーメル、見事な自然を楽しめるビッグサー、壮大なハースト城、パソローバルズ・ワインカントリーの観光をお楽しみいただけ非常にお勧めです。このツアーパッケージには宿泊施設が含まれています(該当する全税金や公園の入場料も込みです)。サンフランシスコの最も混雑したホテルに滞在する代わりに、カーメルやサンシメオンまたはビッグサーの海辺のホテルに滞在することもできます。おそらく、サンフランシスコ市内に滞在するよりも費用を抑えられ、すべて込みの(食事代とチップは除く)2つのカスタムアドベンチャーでツアーと観光先をいくつか組み合わせられるので、お金と時間さえ節約できます。また、ツアーをカスタマイズして、サンルイスオビスポ、パソロブレス、サリナス、モントレー、サンノゼなどの主要都市やサンフランシスコ国際空港を含め、ご希望の地元の空港や電車の駅に無料で送迎可能です。

モントレー湾とカーメルに1日しか滞在できないのなら、ツアーを2、3時間延長することを非常にお勧めします。ツアー行程には含まれていない世界的に有名なビクスビー橋やビッグサー北部などをじっくり探索しながら、見事な風景を満喫いただけます。また、ビッグサー北部の突き出た岩にあるレストランで、海辺の景色を楽しみながら食事をお楽しみいただくことも可能です。ここの景色は実に圧巻です!

モントレーおよびカーメルツアーの行程

サンフランシスコ発着の10時間の完全ガイド付きカスタムツアーです。サンフランシスコ南部、シリコンバレー、サンタクルーズ郡、モントレー郡のホテルまたはご自宅にも無料でお迎えに上がります。また、弊社はサンフランシスコを拠点とし、ここで毎日ツアーを開始しているので、ツアーの所要時間を臨機応変に変更することも可能です。

お迎え後、有名なシリコンバレーと「世界のニンニク首都」ギルロイ、またはハーフムーンベイから州道1号線を通って、モントレー湾へと向かいます。ルートは、天候や道路状況、お選びになった行程により異なります。州道1号線沿いの探索を希望される場合は、モントレーとカーメルの観光時間が短くなりますのでご注意ください(モントレーとカーメルの滞在時間はそれぞれ約1時間15分、またはどちらかにより長く滞在)。ご要望やご希望がある場合は、ツアー開始時にツアーガイドに何なりとお申し付けください。それ以外は、計画を立てたり心配されたりする必要は全くありません!移動や行程については、すべて担当のプロのツアーガイドにお任せください。 決してご期待を裏切りません!

州道1号線と並行して走る101号線をドライブしながらシリコンバレーを通る際は、Google、Oracle、Microsoft、eBay、PayPal、Appleをはじめ、有名なハイテク企業を見逃さないでください。シリコンバレーには、モントレーに行く途中またはサンフランシスコに戻る途中で必ず通ります。

シリコンバレーをじっくりと見学したいのなら、ツアーガイドにお伝えください!ツアーをアレンジいたします!

ギルロイを通り、ご希望に応じてここに立ち寄り、地元のファーマーズマーケットで新鮮な果物やワイン、有名なガーリック・アイスクリームを試飲および試食することも可能です。ギルロイとモントレーの間の農村の中をドライブしながら、ニンニクや赤および緑のレタス、アーティチョーク、ラズベリー、イチゴ、ブロッコリーの緑豊かな畑の美しい景色をお楽しみいただけます。ゴールドコーストの山地とサンタクルーズおよびモントレー郡の谷の農地や耕地の鮮明なコントラストを堪能してください。 パシフィカ、ハーフムーンベイ、またはサンタクルーズ郡のいずれかで州道1号線に入ります。

パシフィカ・ステート・ビーチは、地元の人々と観光客が同様に楽しめる名所です。この広い三日月形のビーチは、サンフランシスコの南にあり、平和を意味するスペイン語の「Pacifica」にちなんで名付けられました。ただし、ハイシーズンの週末や休暇中には非常に混雑します。ここでは、野生動物と出会える他、ハンググライダーが凸凹の海岸線の上空を飛行していたり、観光客が乗馬を楽しみながら、急な丘をビーチへと下ったりしている姿を目の当たりにできます。 ハーフムーンは、サンマテオ郡に位置し、豪華なビーチが数多くあります。その中のひとつで、毎年冬に有名なマーベリックスが開催され、世界有数のサーファーやライダーが集い、ハーフムーンベイの巨大な波に挑戦しています!

また、国内最大のハロウィーン用のカボチャを栽培している農場も通ります。

州道1号線を通りながら、サングレゴリオ・ステート・ビーチやポンポニオ・ステート・ビーチ、ペスカドレス・ステート・ビーチと灯台をはじめ、その他の黄金に輝くビーチを眺められます。必見のピジョンポイント灯台は、ハーフムーンベイとサンタクルーズの間の州道1号線上にあります。高さ115フィートのこの灯台は、ステート・ビーチ沿いの崖の上にそびえ立ち、ゾウアザラシやククジラが移動シーズン中にここを泳いでいる姿を見られるかもしれません(ゾウアザラシやククジラのトイレを使用しないでください!)。付近の州道1号線のすぐ脇には、樹齢1,000年のジャイアントセコイアの森があります。

その他、この風光明媚な州道の見所は、ご希望に応じて、ダベンポートの北約7マイルの所にあるサンタクルーズ郡のペリカンロックやグレーハウンドロックに立ち寄ることができる点です。巨大な海崖が厚い沖積土や海成段丘の堆積物に覆われています。ペリカンやタカ、ヒメコンドル、ハゲタカ、クロミヤコドリなどの野生の動物や鳥をお見逃しなく。

次に、ダベンポート・ロードハウスを訪れ、ダベンポートのビーチを眺めながらコーヒーを飲み一休みします。ダベンポートは、20年以上にわたり最高級の赤アワビを世界中に向けて生産してきたことをご存知でしたか?養魚場American Abaloneにより、モントレー湾国立海洋保護区のありのままの自然が残る海で、カリフォルニア赤アワビが産卵し育てられています。

ダベンポートを訪れた後、サンタクルーズの険しい海岸線を通り、美しいビーチや崖に沿ってドライブします。サンタクルーズは、その恵まれた立地と、キャピトラ・バイ・ザ・シーの北にあるビーチ沿いの遊歩道をはじめ、数多くのアトラクションがあることから、都会の雑踏から離れてリラックスするための人気の名所となりました。また、このエリアは有数のサーフポイントでもあります。時間が許せば、サンタクルーズ・サーフィン博物館に足を運び、サーファーが最大の波に挑戦している姿の写真を見学できます。

サンタクルーズを後にして、モントレー郡を目指して州道1号線を北へと向かいます。道中、平らな湿地や緑豊かな野原、息をのむような岩だらけの海岸線、空高くそびえ立つ崖をはじめ、様々な驚異的な地形を望めます。途中で写真撮影のために停車するので、カリフォルニアの海岸の美しい風景をカメラに収められます。また、州道1号線のすぐ脇にある人里離れた地元のステートビーチを訪れ、ラッコやアザラシ、ゴマフアザラシなどの絶滅危機に瀕した動物と出会えます。この秘境のビーチを歩くと、イルカやクジラが海を泳いでいる姿さえも目の当たりにできるかもしれません。

その他、州道1号線を通る代わりに、ジョン・スタインベックが生まれたモントレー郡とサリナスバレーの裏道に沿いにある農地を訪れることも可能です。専属ツアーガイドが、いつでもツアー行程を臨機応変に調整いたします。

さらにドライブを続け、モントレーのキャナリー・ロウまたは旧フィッシャーマンズワーフを訪れます。キャナリー・ロウは、主要な名所およびアトラクションで、もともとビューアベニューと呼ばれていましたが、ジョン・スタインベックに敬意を表して「キャナリー・ロウ」と改名されました。現在、ここにはモントレー湾水族館の他、ブティック店、エレガントなホテル、レストラン、アートギャラリー、美術館、ワインテイスティングルームなどがあります。毎年数多くのモナーク蝶でいっぱいになるパシフィックグローブを散策したり、ツアー時間を延長して、海洋研究と保全に力を入れているモントレー湾水族館を訪れたりできます。モントレー湾水族館は、その体験型の展示と実に壮大な規模で海洋生物を展示していることから、世界的に知られています(ツアー時間を延長する必要があり、入場料はツアー料金に含まれていません)。

昼食後(食事代はツアー料金に含まれていません)、17マイルドライブを通って、ペブルビーチリゾートとゴルフコースなどの象徴的な名所を訪れます。ペブルビーチリゾートで昼食を摂ることも可能です。17マイルドライブ沿いには、サイプレス・ポイント、バーズロック、スパイグラス展望ポイント、シールロック、チャイナロック、ポイントジョー、スパニッシュベイをはじめ、様々な写真撮影スポットがあります。また、カーメルに向かう途中、パシフィックグローブとその近くの灯台も通ります。

前述のように、カーメル・バイ・ザ・シーは、豊かな自然の風景と芸術の歴史があふれていることで有名な小さな町で、年間を通じて数多くの芸術家たちが、最高傑作を生み出すためにここを訪れています。また、世界最高クラスのショッピングスポットでもある他、町中に歴史があふれていて、思う存分満喫いただけます。ご要望に応じて、バスツアーでは行くことのできないクリント・イーストウッドのミッション・ランチを見学することもできます!ミッション「サン・カルロス・ボロメオ・デル・リオカーメロ」として知られているミッション・カーメルに足を運ぶのもよいでしょう。ここはローマカトリック・ミッション教会で、かつて初期の北方ラス・カリフォルニアス地域ミッションの本部があり、フニペロ・セラ神父が統率していました(1770~亡くなる1784年まで)。今日、フニペロ・セラ神父はここに眠っています。

モントレーやカーメルの観光を希望されない場合や、ゆっくり時間をかけて観光したい場所がある場合は、ツアーガイドにお伝えください。必要に応じて、ツアー行程を調整いたします。

その他、お時間に余裕がある場合は、ビッグサーとその雄大な自然の驚異を体感できる2日間のカスタムツアーを非常にお勧めします。また、サンシメオンまたはビッグサーの宿泊施設に滞在されるとよいでしょう。このエリアの観光をさらに楽しみながら、夜は快適な場所でゆっくりとお過ごしいただけます。観光をすべて終えたら、サンフランシスコ、または地元の空港や電車の駅に直接無料でお送りいたします。

Golden Horizon Toursをお選びいただき誠にありがとうございます。このアドベンチャー中、ご期待にお応えし、ご期待を超えるサービスをご提供できるよう尽力いたします!

Stop reading reviews! This is the right tour company for you

My mother recently had her 80th birthday. Having lost her husband, my father, 6 months ago, my sister and I decided to take my mother on a trip to refresh her mind and body.

She is recovering from a stroke. She had never seen California before. We live on the East Coast. We wanted to see the redwoods, the pacific, the wine country, the golden gate, the city and all the wonders found in the San Francisco Bay area.

We only had 4 days to see all these things....what to do? How do we make sure my mother is safe, comfortable, relaxed and enjoying these sights in Monterey and Carmel?

Luck led to meet goldenhorizontravel.com and I spoke with Nelly, then Adam by phone, he understood our needs, and we arranged a two-day private tour.

My family cannot say enough good things about Golden Horizon Travel office staff, and our awesome tour guide, Adam. He was kind, protective, proactive, compassionate and knowledgeable from history to horticulture, multi-lingual, musical, humorous, interesting, a safe driver, great company, polite, a great teacher.... and the list can continue until all superlatives in the English language are exhausted! My mother is still talking about the trip and how perfect it was even with the recent fires. Adam knew how to outsmart the fires smoke and the traffic. We saw everything we hoped for, and more without the trip being hectic or exhausting. The pace was comfortable, and we learned and experienced with joy.

The tour was customized to us and our unique situation. Adam did everything to be at my mother's arm at every doorstep and incline. He even borrowed a golf cart from a golfer at Pebble Beach in order to give my mother a ride, sparing her a steep, outside staircase. We did not need to ask...he intuitively knew how to help and be "present" to our needs.

If you are considering a tour with Golden Horizon Tours, and Adam, I hope you’ll make a reservation with this local and reliable tour company in San Francisco. You will not be disappointed and I’m happy to be a reference.

Thank you, Golden Horizon Travel and Adam. My mother is still boasting to all about you, we now have a true friend in town!

Thanks

3 Day Hearst Castle, Central California & Big Sur Travel package with hotel included

Myself and 5 girlfriends had planned a trip visit to San Francisco bay area and we wanted to experience Monterey, the 17-Mile drive, Big Sur and Hwy 1 to Hearst Castle. We debated about renting and driving ourselves, then we found out that most parks and places we wanted to visit require a commercial permit and entrance fees , and most hotels were already booked up. Driving through big sur was not easy at all, so we were very glad that we chose Golden Horizon Tours instead.

From the booking online to the tour itself, this tour company went above and beyond to accommodate us.

Mary, our tour guide, picked us up on time at our hotel and Adam loaded our luggage into our roomy comfortable large van for our trip down the coast.

A rainstorm was brewing so we made haste to get on our way. Mary provided us with lots of local information as we travelled along. Adam helped us have a fabulous trip with lots of laughs and some of the best photographs we ever made a s a group .We enjoyed lunch at the Fish Hopper in the Cannery Row in Monterey, then a quick walk through the area of Cannery Row ,before we started our spectacular trip along 17-Mile Drive, Pebble Beach and Carmel.

Mary stopped along the way for us to enjoy the wonderful views and Adam was quick to snap many pictures with our phones and cameras! Mary and Adam were exceptional and so fun! They knew all the best places and hidden gems for photos and viewing, providing plenty of history and information as we drove along the way from San Francisco to Santa Cruz and Monterey. We enjoyed the stop at the Pebble Beach Golf Course as well, but alas no sign of Clint :(

We managed to get well on our way along Hwy 1 before the rain started. As no one has control over the weather, we were soon in mist and rain , with little to see. This was when we were glad someone else was at the wheel! We too advantage to stop in an old lounge and had hot chocolate and coffee by a fireplace where locals meet to read newspapers… rain or shine, it didn’t really matter, every minute was well spent and very well organized, these folks are truly professionals!

Mary drove expertly. Adam kept us entertained with jokes and then found out he had some talented singers on board. We took over the microphone and started singing in the bus, that’s was fun! I love these guys approach and how they made us feel so comfortable. It wasn't long before we could see more scenery along the coast of Big Sur.

Big Sur is scenery so beautiful and enjoyable if you are not at the wheel. Boy! This was one of steepest winding mountain roads we have ever seen; with endless winding turns, cliffside routes and switchback. If you want to enjoy big sur, don’t drive! we were glad someone else was at the wheel

We had a nice lunch break in Big Sur in a hidden restaurant with striking ocean views(we could have never even found it on our own). We were told that Rita Hayworth and Orson Welles spent some time there at this open-air restaurant where Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton featured in “the Sandpiper”, one of our favorite movies of Elizabeth Taylor.

After lunch, Mary and Adam took us on a walking tour to a redwood forest to see the giant sequoias, and to waterfalls where we got to see a couple of California condors. We also liked our stop in Rugged Point and at Piedras Blancas where we saw massive elephants’ seals on the beach. The elephant seals were a sight to behold, after we dodged a few puddles to get to them.

We arrived in San Simeon and Mary dropped up off at a nice restaurant ,so they could check us in while we had our dinner. Our accommodation at this intimate lodge was so comfortable and peaceful. The next morning, we had a complimentary breakfast by the pool, and then, we walked to the beach located half block away from this hotel. Mary and Adam checked us out of the hotel, we didn’t have to deal with checking in and out of the hotel and no credit card was required this time for incidentals.

On the way to the Hearst Castle, we stopped to picture zebras roaming through the Hearst Castle state park. We got to Hearst Castle and visited the Grand Rooms, gardens and outdoor pool. The IMAX film at the visitor’s center was excellent. At the gift shop, Adam purchased a DVD on the secrets of Hearst Castle with Patricia Hearst: which we watched on our drive back to San Francisco. ( I think he was afraid we would start singing again!!!).

After Hears Castle, we visited Morro Bay, Avila Beach and spent the last night at gorgeous cliffside resort in San Luis Obispo. We picked up this mineral spring resort and booked a package deal to relax, enjoy their mud path and naturally heated mineral spring and pools. 4 of was signed up for the yoga class, this is real hidden gem which was recommend to us by Nelly and Golden Horizon Travel.

The next day, we visited three wineries in Enda Valley, we loved their chardonnays, this by far was the smallest and most beautiful wine country we have been to.

We wish we could have more time to spend in this region, but we had a flight the day at SFO. Mary dropped us off at the Airport and we flew back home to Calgary.

“Monterey, Carmel and 17 miles Drive tour review Dear CEO of Golden Horizon Travel”

I have already sent you a hard copy of this tour review we posted on trip advisor regarding our trip to Carmel and Monterey with Adam, our fabulous tour guide on our adventure to Carmel, Monterey, 17 Mile Drive, Pebble Beach etc... In case he doesn’t share it with you, we did want you to see this tour review because we had the best tour ever with your company thanks to Adam!

As you can tell after reading this tour review, Adam was a terrific tour guide. We feel so fortunate that he was our tour guide-driver. In fact, my brother said this about Adam: “You know that Carol and I have been on a lot of private tours, probably about 50, and Adam was the best guide we’ve ever had”. It’s hard to beat that for a compliment!

Thank you for helping to make our visit to San Francisco, Carmel and Monterey a very special trip for all four of us. I’ll have to say that I was so very impressed with the kindness and congeniality of the people we encountered in San Francisco. Everyone we encountered was delightful, friendly, kind and anxious to help if we needed directions or whatever. It was impressive for such a big city.

With kind regards and may your business continue to be very successful. We certainly will recommend Golden Horizon Travel is someone we know is travelling to the area and needing travel help.

Once again, we all want to thank Adam you for the wonderful day we spent touring Carmel, Monterey, the Pebble Beach golf course (and the clubhouse!!!), along with all the other sites we saw on that fun-filled day that month. You made the day (and into the evening) absolutely sensational. Although brother Bob and Carol had been to this area, Ben and I had not, so to see it with you guiding us along made for an enlightening day. We feel so fortunate that YOU were our tour guide.! Your sense of humor, your wealth of knowledge about the areas we saw, your excellent driving skills, your desire to make sure that all four of us were comfortable and informed and your ability to get us onto the 17 Mile Drive as well as into the Pebble Beach Clubhouse (where the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am tournament was held) just made the day so wonderful. No other tour company could get access to the 17 mile drive that day! We still can’t believe we did and saw all these famous actors out there! Well, I’ll never hold it against you Adam that you informed the guard at the entrance that you had a carload full of seniors from Georgia who only wanted to see the Lone Cypress!! HEE ! I hate to admit it, but I guess we are just that- seniors.! ha(no body was allowed on the 17 Mile drive this day except celebrities, but we made it! )

Again, thank you Adam (alias Hoke) for making our tour so much fun and memorable. You add such a personal touch and you have the unique ability to make everyone feel so comfortable and so special. You went above and beyond making sure we would have a fabulous day in Monterey and Carmel. And we did.!! The photos you took for us are amazing!

Linda, Ben, Bob and Carol

“Marvelous day with an equally marvelous guide!”

My husband and I are computer geeks, so we could not miss the opportunity to go on a tour of Silicon Valley during our trip to San Francisco in California. I am so glad we decided to go with Golden Horizon. Our guides Adam and David went out of their way to ensure that we had a great time. They made sure we saw all the good spots and then some more like Stanford University, HP garage in Palo Alto, Apple Headquarters in Cupertino, the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, the Intel Museum, Oracle, Googleplex and Facebook, ... all in one day tour. We didn’t even feel rushed at all. We would definitely give our Silicon Valley tour experience five stars and we will recommend it to our friends and colleagues.

We had just the right amount of time in each place, stop, and a nice seafood platter for lunch, and amazing day trip with an excellent driver! I cannot imagine a more professional and competent travel company. Everything was arranged beautifully. Do yourself a huge favor and let this tour company handle everything – they are simply marvelous.

“3 Day California Tour Package - Recommended 4 families with kids!”

We picked Golden Horizon after following on Trip Advisor leads and reviews realizing the need for an expert tour guide and driver. I not only requested a custom tour (Muir Woods and Horseback Riding one afternoon, then a long day of driving from San Fran down to Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur, Hearst Castle in San Simeon, Pismo Beach & dropped us off at the 4 season in Santa Barbara) but I also requested Adam who is highly rated on trip advisor. He has been working as a tour guide for over 15 years. He is truly knowledgeable, caring, full of history, full of humor and might have taken more than 400 pictures of my family as he guided us through California. Golden Horizon is real & I'm happy to provide a reference and endorse them. Again, a big thumbs up!

“A fantastic overnight tour along the Pacific Coastline!”

My family of 4 +1 took a private tour of Monterey Bay, Carmel, Big Sur and Hearst Castle. We had huge suitcases which wouldn't have fit in an SUV, and he was kind enough to accommodate us by bringing a large luxury van instead at no extra charge! Jon was the tour guide and driver, he is very polite, professional and with an awesome personality !

From gazing at beautiful vistas of the ocean to spending an afternoon looking at lazy elephant seals, sea otters and sea lions, we saw quite a lot in the span of our 2-day big sur trip. The overnight accommodation at the hotel was very comfortable and we got food suitable to our dietary requirements. The hotel was intimate and small with only 45 rooms, we could see the ocean from our room.

All in all, this 2-day Hearst castle overnight trip is a must do for all ages and travelers, it was a great time spent with the family and new friends!

Golden Horizon is the BEST! 5 STARS ALL THE WAY!!!

“Family vacation in California with Golden Horizon Travel”

After reading reviews about Golden Horizon, tours, I’ve decided to go ahead and book a California travel package with them with hotel accommodation included.

Our journey started in San Francisco and ended in Santa Monica, in Los Angles. We visited San Francisco, Napa, Yosemite national park, Monterey, Big Sur, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles. Our tour guide was Leo, he is young, energetic and yet very experienced. This destination is underrated, and highly recommended for the whole family.

I recommend taking an extra day to avoid rushing and take the time to visit more places along the way.

We highly recommend this outdoor adventure and this business.

Awesome horseback adventure on the beach and tour of Monterey and Big Sur

We booked a private tour of San Francisco combined with a horseback ride on the beach, and a full day outdoor adventure to Monterey and Big Sur. Both tours were fully personalized and very well organized.

We were so lucky, we got Adam as our tour guide, he is a fantastic, fun and knowledgeable tour leader.

We managed to see amazing places along California pacific coast highway between San Francisco and Big Sur. We enjoyed very much our horseback ride on the beach near Santa Cruz, and the hike we took to remote beaches in big sur region.

I can go on and on, this tour company was so easy to work with, and they always responded promptly in Spanish, their tour guides are the best and highly recommended.

*Thanks a bunch Adam for the recommendations about the best places to see in Los Angeles, we were not disappointed!

Our Monterey and Carmel private tour with Mary

Mary is a fun native san Franciscan tour guide; she made our trip so fun and memorable. She has a good way of dealing with kids and keep everyone entertained and enjoying the trip. We made over 15 stops along the way to Monterey and a ton of photographs.

This getaway is a nice and easy day trip from San Francisco. Nelly who works in the office was very helpful and accommodating, she even responded to our live chats late at night and responded to our inquires and questions before we booked. Their website is every detailed and easy to use.

"A fun outdoor adventure along California coast highway"

After the trip we took to Alcatraz and Muir Woods with this tour company, we realized how good their tour guides are, this motivated us to book this extra day trip along the coast with this tour company. Our kids were so excited; we had a picnic lunch at the beach and then drove up to local parks and cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, we couldn't have asked for anything more.

This was a fun outdoor adventure and suited the whole family, our young daughters had a blast.

A fun day family day trip to the redwoods, Monterey and Carmel

Golden Horizon Travel is the best tour company we had in California, the way they run their tours and treat their clients is impressive; they are very professional and reliable.

We reserved three different excursions with them; one to Muir Woods and Point Reyes, one to San Francisco combined with Alcatraz Island and a full day private tour to Monterey and Carmel. We had three different tour guides, all of them lived up to our expectations (Buddy, Luis and Adam).

If you are looking for new adventures, exclusive destinations and a piece of mind, this travel agency in San Francisco is the right business for you.

Family Trip to San Francisco and Monterey

We read extensively reviews on trip advisor, and we ended up choosing Golden Horizon Tours over the other tour companies in San Francisco based on their excellent reviews. From day 1, they were very responsive and helpful when we approached them by email and through their website live chat.

This is the only tour company in San Francisco that provides private services and guided tours with Spanish speaking tour guides. We booked all our trips with them (Yosemite, Muir Woods, Alcatraz/ San Francisco and Monterey), and we are so glad we did.

This was our first trip the USA and California, and we loved every trip we took with this tour company.

We highly recommend them to all travelers and families with teens.

"Our California adventure from San Francisco to Los Angles"

Our travel agent Mrs. Pugh organized a full day California road trip by private SUV with Golden Horizon Travel. We had a driver and a tour guide who was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating.

The hotels where we stayed in Carmel, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbra and in Los Angeles were very comfortable and all were 4-star resorts.

There is so much to see in California, 4 days went by so quickly, however, we had plenty of time to visit the sites we were interested in along California state highway 1. Our tour guide was so engaging and kept us informed, entertained and informed. The only regret we had is that Big Sur road was closed due to a huge mud slide.

"A fantastic tour of San Francisco and Monterey Peninsula"

My wife’s relatives came over from oversees to visit us in Florida, it was a hot season, so we decided to travel to California.

I’m so glad we did; we had a fantastic time in San Francisco and Monterey peninsula. We booked a 2-day tour package to Monterey bay area, and we stayed at the Inter-Continental in Cannery Row area, that was the perfect location for day activities and nightlife.

We all loved this tour, we never felt rushed, this was a good fit for the whole family

"Big Basin Redwoods horseback ride on the beach in Santa Cruz"

It didn’t take us too long to reach a laid-back beach, so peaceful and beautiful. Have some extra layers (it got foggy when we were leaving).  

After the horseback ride, our fun and very nice tour guide drove us to Santa Cruz where we had lunch in a restaurant located on the Wharf. We ordered a seafood platter which was fresh and yummy, and the views made it the perfect location for our family.  

For me personally, the highlight of our trip was our tour of a beautiful forest of big redwood trees in Santa Cruz mountains. I’ve been to Muir Woods before, but this state park was less crowded than Muir Woods and the redwood trees are much bigger and older in Santa Cruz mountains.

On the way back to our hotel in San Francisco, the tour guide made a quick stop at Apple’s new headquarter in Silicon Valley. We visited the visitor center and the store (while our son was sneaking out to fly his drone over Apple’s new and amazing architecture “it looks like a spaceship from the sky”.) 

We highly recommend this outdoor adventure and this tour company.

"An awesome horseback ride on the beach and Alcatraz tour"

We had to book a combo tour to get our hand on Alcatraz prison tickets, so we signed up for a horseback ride on the beach. It took place in Half-Moon Bay. The scenery along the Pacific coast Highway is breathtaking.  

This tour company is very reliable, and their tour guide Mary was amazing! We felt like we had a friend in town. It was more than a tour - a real and fun experience. Mary even drove us through the Golden Gate Park, and we stopped for a snack and beer tasting at the Beach Chalet, an ocean front restaurant with stunning view of ocean beach in San Francisco.  

Highly recommended

"Fantastic horseback ride near Muir Woods and Stinson Beach"

Well organized Silicon Valley Private Limousine Tour!

We were picked up by Pat, a nice Irish lady and a wonderful tour guide. She drove us through Mill Valley where we stopped for breakfast before we visited Muir Woods - a peaceful small forest with big and towering redwood trees. The trail through Muir Woods is flat and easy, and there are paved paths for those wanting a casual stroll or more challenging trails. We did both trails along the creek, and our kids had no problem with the twisty paths and stairs although towering redwood trees

After Muir Woods, we had a lunch break at Stinson Beach, which was a great place for a picnic lunch. We enjoyed the delicious fish tacos we ordered, everything was very fresh and sourced locally from Marin county. Near Stinson beach is Bolinas, where we and our kids went on horseback riding in the forest. I’m glad it was only an hour; we could not take more than that as this was our first horseback riding experience.

That was an unforgettable family adventure in Marin county.

Thank you, Pat, for the good memories.

"Golden Horizon Travel is truly golden and 100% recommended!"

It's not easy coordinating tours from another country thousands of miles away with a 15-hour time differential. It's a constant struggle not to get paranoid that there will be a miscommunication somewhere that will ruin everything. But, Golden Horizon Travel, thru Nelly and the office staff including Nick, made it seem like I was talking to someone who was there for me 24-7. All my queries were not only immediately answered but answered clearly and patiently. This is how you know they are local, reliable and experienced professionals when they answer all tricky questions with such confidence and expertise. The company we approached before them was acutely located in Texas and was so heard to reach, and when we finally did, they had no idea how to answer our specific questions.

Moreover, with a little over a week to one of our tours (Napa Valley, Yosemite, Silicon Valley Alcatraz and Hearst Castle), we experienced a death in the family where the memorial service schedule conflicted with the tour date. Even with the very short notice and the confirmed schedules of the other tours during that period, Golden Horizon found a way to accommodate our request to move our tour to a later date, with limitless kindness, compassion and at no extra cost.

As for the actual tours to, Golden Horizon tours, thru our tour guide Mary, Patricia and Marina made the experience of our large group tour by minibus (6 adults and 5 children) truly unique, outskating, fun and memorable. Even with our seemingly cramped requested itinerary and last-minute changes, their tour guides accommodated us on the go and made sure we saw the best sites and ate in restaurants that served delicious food and vegetarian options for our mom. Also, despite the long hours and the distances driving, these guys never once showed a drop in their energy.

Thank you, Golden Horizon Travel, Nelly, Mary, Pat and Nick for the memorable tours. 10 Stars won’t even make justice! Book with them without any doubt or hesitations!

Golden Horizon Travel is 100% recommended!

"Must-do 2-day tour package to Monterey / Carmel and Big Sur with Mary"

Golden Horizon Travel staff is underrated, and their tour guide Mary is highly recommended. Mary is a local native tour guide of San Francisco with Irish heritage; she is a fantastic travel guide with an abundance of history of places up and down the pacific coast. Mary was extremely flexible and customised our travel itinerary on the go and based on our personal interests and preference. Some of the trip highlights were seeing hidden beaches, giant redwood trees, an old light house, sea otters up close feeding and playing as well as dolphins and elephant seals.

We had fresh seafood in small wharf in tiny old village where the population is under 150 people, this was by the far the best seafood platter we ever had! Ask for their cioppino or for the catch of the day!

We choose to take a drive through the backroads around Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur rather than using the main touristy route. In Big Sur, we drove off the main road throughout steep canyons and got to truly hidden gems and picturesque beaches. I wish we could have more time to spend in Big Sur, it’s breathtaking.

We also visited Carmel Spanish mission of San Carolos and Pebble Beach. An overall; a fantastic outdoor adventure seeing the sights, learning the history and geology of each region we visited and were treated like royalty!

We would definitely use this great local tour company again.

"There are not enough words to express how much we enjoyed our stay and private tour package with Golden Horizon, Mary and Adam. "

Even though we only had 2 days, our guide Peter was both knowledgeable and accommodating and we were able to see an amazing places and parks along the way to Hearst Castle. We x visit the Monterey aquarium, Carmel, 17-mile drive, Big Sur, Hearst Castle, and all sorts of side stops along the coast to see wildlife and natural attractions but also excellent California cuisine

The experience was great - we learned a lot, got lots of pictures, and got along very well with our awesome tour guide, Peter, a nice British fellow.

Thank you, Golden Horizon Travel, for helping us and making the most of our short time in California!

Excellent private tour of Monterey and Carmel

This was the perfect mix of awe-inspiring scenery, history and marine wildlife viewings. Our guide Peter was outstanding. He was knowledgeable about so many fields of interest and he tailored a tour itinerary for our small group, that was perfect. The SUV was new, comfortable and spotless. Peter also has a knack for photography, so we left with excellent photos.

A great outdoor adventure for the whole family to Monterey & Big Sur !

Peter was a great tour guide and driver. Wonderful trip with beautiful scenery and marine habitat viewings. Luxury SUV very comfortable, and Peter is a creative photographer! This trip is underrated and worth the money. We loved Monterey and Carmel; however, Big Sur was the highlight of the trip - getting to the heart of big sur was not easy, and we were glad we had a designated expert driver. Big Sur road is basically a cliff-hanging drive through narrow mountain roads with countless winding turns and curves… we found out that the drive there was very pleasant and fun as long as you are not behind the wheel in this area.

There was also plenty of outdoor activities to do and fun things to see in Big Sur, so many hidden gems located off the beaten path where visitors drive by nonstop. Having an experienced tour guide helped us a lot and made the best out of the day, this was a true outdoor adventure for the whole family.

I love birds and we saw plenty of beautiful birds, squirrels, whales and sea otters, so cool to watch along the coast and in the redwood’s forests in Big Sur region.

I can go on and on…make yourself a favor, visit big sur and hire these folks, they are so passionate and good at what they do.

"A Fantastic way to travel to Monterey & Carmel by-the-sea"

We used Golden Horizon's charter tour to head south through Monterey and do the Pacific Coast Highway. They were professional, punctual and couldn't have been more accommodating. Our guide Jonathan and his trainee Pete were so knowledgeable and helpful, really going way over and above to make sure we had the California experience we were looking for. We had limited time in the area, and they knew where the best stops were.

"We spent 5 magical days with Golden Horizon Tours"

Hubby and I prefer private tours when we travel, bus and public tours are a waste of time. Since it was my 50th birthday we splurged. We had a great time with Buddy in San Francisco and Point Reyes, Mary in Napa and in Silicon Valley and we spent the 2-remaining days with Jonathan in Monterey and big Sur(he is a nice a kiwi guy from Auckland, NZ).

Sunday, we spent the day with John driving south on the Coast toward Carmel and Big Sur. We started down that way and looped our way back north to get most out of the day best lights and exposure, we are both professional photographers. The scenery is amazing and breathtaking. We stopped at this small beach about 30 minutes south of Santa Cruz because John said, "there has been sightings of whales along the coast." As soon as we walked toward the beach the whales started spraying. It was really cool. We went as far down as Bixby Bridge on day 1, and then stopped for lunch at the Rocky Point Restaurant. Then we headed into Carmel and Monterey. It was a long day, but worth every minute. The hotel where we spent the night was cozy and centrally located in Carmel downtown, the perfect location to enjoy Carmel by foot. This is a wonderful and distinct neighborhood that must be explored by foot.

The next day, we drove again through big sur and got to Hearst Castle by noon. Hearst Castle is royal, breathtaking, majestic and stunning…this is a Must-See Attraction when visiting California! The place is gigantic, and the views are inspiring. The swimming pools, gardens and architectural structures are completely extravagant and out of this world. Hearst Castle is truly an American dream for all to experience.

When booking our trip, I spoke with Alan, he was great helping us planning our trips with a great deal of knowledge, patience and enthusiasm. Thank you, Golden Horizon , I will recommend you to anyone I hear is heading to California and San Francisco Bay Area.

"Golden Horizon tours and their team are simply fantastic & outstanding"

“If you want to create a vacation memory that is as close to perfection as possible, go with Golden Horizon, they are worth every penny!”

Golden Horizon tours and their team are simply fantastic. Outstanding service from the very beginning! Our reservation agent Nelly set everything up, worked around our dinner reservations and she even worked her magic and found us tickets for a last-minute visit to Alcatraz which were sold out and very hard to come by. We did three different private tours and had the pleasure of working with two different, but equally wonderful guides. Adam took us all over the city on day one to visit all the “key” sites. Although he is originally from France he maneuvered through the city and around traffic like an old pro was just so charming you couldn’t help but adore him. He took photo’s for us with our camera and his all the while sharing great tidbits about each venue and he finished the day off by setting us up at a great restaurant on the water in Sausalito, just a short walk from our hotel ending a picture perfect day. Our good fortune held out as we set out for day two with Mary a San Francisco native that took us to see more of the city hidden sights, filling the day with personal antidotes of what it was like growing up in the city and really brining the city to life. We got a chance to see places that aren’t on the typical tour list and that made it all the more fun. We did spur of the moment things like stop in and tour a house for sale that ended up being the original home of a well-known local poet.

On our third tour, Mary showed up early with coffee in hand for a beautiful day trip to Carmel and Monterey where we stopped at a road side stand and bought fresh picked strawberries, strolled around Carmel by the Sea and shared lunch on the patio at Pebble Beach before taking in the beauty of 17 Mile Drive. If you want to create a vacation memory that is as close to perfection as possible, go with Golden Horizon, they are worth every penny!”

"The glowing reviews for Golden Horizons on Trip Advisor ARE REAL!"

Day excursion to Monterey and Carmel from San Francisco

When I saw the glowing reviews for Golden Horizons on Trip Advisor, I knew I had to book one of their tours for a recent trip to San Francisco. It was difficult to choose which one as they all looked interesting. I decided on the 1-Day Monterey and Carmel tour. We had a problem come up with the date of our booking and Golden Horizons was able to change it to the next day without any problems, much to our relief. Our tour guide Jon was great, very informative and always willing to provide rest breaks for us along the way. He was also trying to spot whales in the distance for us, but unfortunately that day wasn’t very lucky for us in that respect. Highlights of the tour included having lunch at Monterey, visiting the Pebble Beach Golf Course (albeit briefly) and seeing the charming little houses of Carmel. The SUV was also very comfortable, and the tour was run very smoothly and professionally. If you are thinking of taking any tours with this tour company, just do it - you won’t be disappointed. I would definitely choose this company again for other excursions should I return to San Francisco.

Private city Tour and day trip to Monterrey and Carmel from San Francisco

We took the full day city tour on our first day in the city and it was a great way to get familiarized with the city. Our tour guide, Tom, did an excellent job of showing us all of the sites we wanted to see plus more and gave great historical background If you want to create a vacation memory that is as close to perfection as possible, go with Golden Horizon, they are worth every penny!

We stopped at several different locations for photos of the Golden Gate Bridge, some which were high up in the mountains which I'm sure you wouldn't be able to experience on the larger tours. A trip to Sausalito and Muir Woods was excellent as well. There's no better bang for your buck to see everything in the city in one day.

Our second tour took us to Monterrey and Carmel which provided breathtaking views of the California coast and these unique coastal towns. While very touristy, these towns were very interesting to see and gave us a good look at life outside the city. We also drove down 17-mile drive and got to walk around the beautiful Pebble Beach for a bit. The tour allowed plenty of time for exploring on our own and had some great photo ops. Overall, we definitely recommend tours from this company to get the most out of your vacation!

A nice smiling lady came to pick us up at our hotel in south san Francisco with a black SUV, and then drove us along California scenic highway one to Monterey. We felt very comfortable from the very begging and spent the whole day chatting and laughing about everything. We skipped the cannery row and spent more time in Carmel by the sea away from the bus tours. Our walking tour in Carmel was the highlight of our trip to Monterey Peninsula.

So sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. Firstly, a huge thank you for arranging our tour to Hearst castle. We had a fabulous day.

Mary is a lovely lady and was a fantastic tour guide. Her local knowledge is exceptional, and she made a very long day thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable.

I was extremely pleased when I found that that Mary was our tour guide.

Hearst Castle is a masterpiece of art and architecture, we recommend the overnight trip as this was a long day drive, but worth the money and trip.

Thank you again for arranging our tour, we will certainly be in contact with you when we will next visit San Francisco.

Excellent private tour of Monterey and Carmel

We had a fabulous time with our guide Leo. The trip well exceeded our expectations. Leo was extremely fun, helpful and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our relaxing trip from San Francisco, down the coast with him. He knew where to go and stop, we were in very good hands. Leo was friendly and flexible with where we stopped to eat and tour during our entire trip.

I think Big Sur was our favorite place, or was it Carmel, or Hearst Castle, or the strawberry fields. Too many funs filled stops to mention...

Our trip was packed with all the hot stops and loads of fun! We highly recommend booking with Golden Horizon Tours. Their tour guides and vehicles are 5 stars, and the hotel choice was just prefect.

OH!! Our favorite Stop was IN AND OUT BURGER, On our way to the SFO airport!!! Thanks for the secret information Leo!!

"Look no further....you came to the right place!"

My twenty-year-old son and I planned a Mother/Son get away to San Francisco to spend some quality alone time together. Preferring convenient and hassle-free experiences, we explored our options of private tour companies. Lucky for us, we selected Golden Horizon Travel & Tours. We booked three of their tours: The Ultimate Grand City 8-hour Tour, The Muir Woods/Sausalito half day Tour and The Monterey, Carmel, 17-Mile Drive Tour.

We have found completing an overview tour of cities we travel to the first full day of our travel grants us a great overview of the area and helps us to determine which areas we may choose to explore further. We had the pleasure of having Mary, a San Francisco native, as our guide for this tour. Mary was gracious, kind and accommodating. She was knowledgeable of the history and was able to tell us how things have changed in the city during her years here. What a priceless gift.

We then had the pleasure of meeting Jon for our Muir Woods, Sausalito and Marin Headland Tours. As this is a half day tour, we requested to add on an extra hour to spend more time exploring a few extra sites. Again, Jon was knowledgeable about the area offering us added opportunities to see places of interest to us that added to our experience (ie - The Marine Mammal Center, The Record Plant Recording Studio where Prince recoded his first album, etc). Jon further showed us many areas of Sausalito that we may not have seen if not for his guidance.

Finally, we had the pleasure to once again have Mary as our guide for The Monterey, Carmel, and 17-Mile Drive Tour. Mary made this day long tour pleasurable and comfortable showing us many sites we may not have found on our own. Such a lovely way to spend our last day in the Bay Area.

Both Mary and Jon are 5/5-star guides and you will not go wrong with either of them!
