What to Expect
Head south on the famous Pacific Coast Highway, California Highway 1, for a scenic coastal journey to Monterey and Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Set foot on Monterey’s famous Cannery Row for a chance to stroll among the shops and grab a fresh seafood lunch. The tour will follow the coast through the beautiful little town of Pacific Grove on the way to the 17 Mile Drive. This famous road winds its way between magnificent homes and the spectacular coastline, between the greens and tees of world famous golf courses and among the last remaining forest of a rare species of the Monterey Cypress.

This scenic drive finishes up at the Pebble Beach Village. Upon arrival in the enchanted town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, explore the boutique shops on Ocean Avenue or be dazzled by the white sandy beach. This tour also has optional short stops in Half Moon Bay or Santa Cruz.

On the following day, visit Alcatraz, San Francisco's most popular attraction. Learn about the prison's unique history courtesy of an award-winning audio tour, available in 6 languages. Wander around the abandoned cell blocks on a guided tour and hear about some of the prison's most notable inmates.

After your cell house tour, feel free to explore the island and take in the stunning views of the San Francisco skyline, the Golden Gate Bridge, and San Francisco Bay. Most visits to Alcatraz last 2-2.5 hours and ferries depart the island every 30 minutes.
