About the Bundle
Join your tour guides Lynn and Bob on three unique tours of the Monterey Bay area. On Bob’s 8-mile driving tour learn the history of Alta California’s first capital Monterey, view its historic adobes, and take in its beautiful scenery. Begin your tour with a cruise down Monterey’s Del Monte Blvd to view Del Monte Beach, continue past the Cathedral of Monterey, the oldest continuously operating parish in California. Drive down Monterey’s main drag, Alvarado Street and on to the coast to view Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Once you have a lay of the land, take a deep dive into the history of the area with Lynn’s two walking tours. Stroll seaside along Monterey’s Fisherman’s Wharf on a 1-mile adventure that explores the area's maritime history. Visit the locations of several scenes shot in the HBO miniseries Big Little Lies. On this tour you will also explore three museums in Monterey State Historic Park and view some of the area's numerous restored adobe buildings. Next, step back into the bygone era of John Steinbeck’s fabled Cannery Row with a 2-mile walking tour of Cannery Row and discover the real-life people Steinbeck drew from to create the characters in his novel. On this tour we’ll discover how this area went from a quaint fishing village to the center of a booming sardine industry, how it ultimately ended in economic collapse and rusted ruins, only to be reborn into the commercial hub it is today. Round out your 3-tour Monterey Explorer Pack at one of Cannery Rows bayside restaurants. Happy Adventures!
