Had an amazing 11 hour experience with Patrick, our driver, who took our coach to Monterey and Carmel via 17 mile drive. He was so knowledgeable and catered to everyone's needs on board. Having that personal touch really made our day and he even dropped us all at our respective hotels. Would thoroughly recommend Patrick and Tower Tours

We did the tour where the tasting fees were included and it was well worth it. The bus was clean, the staff was great and our driver, Willy, was fantastic. The wine estates we visited really did a good job of hosting us. We visited Madonna, Sebastian and Sutter Home wineries. Had a great time and would recommend it to... More

Booked online from New Zealand. The ticketing system was different to what I had experienced but worked fine. Willie was our bus driver and was informative and humorous. Not knowing the city he had lots of history to offer us, showing us architecture, landmarks and hints of best places to eat, take photos etc. The weather was perfect for our... More

Wanted just a tour to Muir Woods with no add-ons and Tower Tours fit the bill. The return trip did include a pass through Sausalito for anyone who wanted to hop off there and take the ferry back. Driver was knowledgeable and helpful. Tour left a little early since everyone booked showed up early, so we had a full two... More
