I had heard many wonderful comments about Monterey Movie Tours, and so when a family member came from out of state for a visit, I decided to book the two of us. We had an absolutely terrific time! The driver (who was also the owner) was very friendly and knowledgeable. He even took our picture! I didn't realize just how many movies were actually filmed on the Monterey Peninsula. My mother-in-law loved watching the movie clips and seeing all the various sights, especially the Lodge at Pebble Beach. The seats on the bus were very comfortable as well. I not only learned quite a bit of movie trivia, I learned some wonderful history of the area. I would definitely recommend Monterey Movie Tours!
This is a must-see when you visit the Monterey Peninsula. Not only do you view some breathtaking scenery, but you learn a lot about the area that you would never find out on your own. Doug Lumsden, owner and operator, provides a wealth of information in his usual friendly, disarming way. Highlight: enjoy the view from the 18th green at Pebble Beach, up close and personal. Later, when you watch Tiger Woods walk the green on TV, you can say you were there. Doug, keep doing what you're doing. By the way, do you need any relief tour drivers?
