Whether you are visiting Monterey for its many historical landmarks and gorgeous views or you are here to check out the wine tasting rooms and bars on Cannery Row, our free walking tours will help you get your bearings in this amazing city, and allow you to make the most of your stay.
Our tours are completely free because our informed, entertaining, and unforgettable guides work on a tips-only basis, so the highest quality is guaranteed! They’ll never pressure you to tip – even though the guides receive no other compensation from our company or the city. We believe that if money is given, it should be voluntary and in direct proportion to the quality of the tour and budget of the traveler.
A walking tour is perfect for families and groups of friends looking to get a better feel of the city while staying together. There is no need to split up and choose a meeting point when our tour will show you everything Cannery Row has to offer.
Can't get your group to come with you? Leave them behind. We promise that you will feel safe and comfortable with our hilarious tour guides always at your side. By the end of the tour, you'll be able to impress your friends with all of your new knowledge of Cannery Row.
That's right, even lifelong locals of Monterey can learn a lot more about this beautiful paradise that we enjoy living in so much. Our tours include funny stories and historical information on many different sites and monuments.
