    Pfeiffer Beach and having lunch at the pebble beach clubhouse were definitely the highlights. Carlos took us all up and down highway one past the Bixby Bridge. We did 17 mile drive and saw Carmel. We loved it! It was a one day trip from SF. I would recommend a few days in Big Sur and Carmel, but if you only have one day, this works well!

    Worth every penny..amazing trip

    Best experience . Carlos, the driver was kind and so knowlegeable. The person setting up everything was also so kind and made everything smooth. Even sent me an article about how to reduce risk of contracting corona virus with the various modes of travel. Car travel with minimal and short travel in Amtrak with everyone spaced out was a good option. Just take some serious disinfecting wipes for the train portion and wipe everything before you sit, stay away from other people and you can travel this way with reduced risk. Plus you can see all the sites and not have to worry about keeping ets on the road. Worth every penny. I only wish it was a full day instead of half day, but the earliest arrival to Salinas is not availablr vis amtrak until after 11:00 a.m. but ad says train departs at 7:30 a.m.
