Overall a good experience. The Tour Guide, "Summer", was excellent. Driver was OK. Hotels were nice. The refreshment stops were too Chinese oriented and we had a hard time finding regular cuisine, as there were a number of other nationalities on board. The 6:00 a.m. departure to UC Berkeley was much too early, especially after getting in late the night before. This made no sense. Those going on the cruise had to speed through Madame Tussaud's. The 3rd Day Itinerary however, was much too rushed. The Driver raced through the 17-mile drive, so we couldn't even look at the palatial homes, as they were flashing by. The only stop was at the Pebble Beach lodge. No sea lion rock stop, no Lone Cypress Stop... Nothing else. This was a grave disappointment, and we got the impression that they just wanted to return as quickly as possible to LA. Overall not a bad trip but improvement needed to itinerary.

Really an excellent tour ! The guide, Bevan Li, was great! Superb accommodation and transport. One coffee break each in the morning (10.30 am) and the afternoon ( 3.00 pm ) should be provided.

Everything was good. I enjoyed the trip really well. My only concern is you should be organized in seating arrangements in the bus. Make it so your tour guide can tell the guests to sit in the same spot from the start til the end of the trip. Two people were fighting over the seat that made our group not comfortable at the end of the trip.
