More Tour Information:

Travel through historic Cannery Row - the setting for many movies over the years including Clash by Night starring Marilyn Monroe and Barbara Stanwyck...and a few scenes in the movie (you guessed it) Cannery Row!

Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home was filmed at the world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium where Humpback whales were held in, just kidding there...only Hollywood and the magic of special effects can make that happen!

Look out onto Monterey Bay where sailing scenes were filmed in the classic movies Captains Courageous and Mutiny on the Bounty. And, lest we forget, there's also one of the most memorable Monterey-filmed movies...Monster from the Ocean Floor (once you've seen this monster you'll see why it should have been left on the cutting room floor)!

See the City of Pacific Grove and its majestic coastline that was turned into the fictitious town of "Cypress Grove" in the movie Turner & Hooch. The resort seen in A Summer Place is also located in this picturesque coastal community.

Things really get busy on 17-Mile Drive in Pebble Beach. The magnificent beauty of this coastline has been used in many action driving scenes in such movies as My Favorite Brunette, Julie, Chandler, The Big Bounce, The Parent Trap, My Blood Runs Cold, Susan Slade and many more! Several scenes have been filmed in and around homes situated along this unbelievably scenic drive.

The Lodge at Pebble Beach and the legendary Pebble Beach Golf Links have been the location for memorable scenes in such movies as National Velvet, Julie, Follow the Sun, The Ghost & Mrs. Muir and In Love and War.

Travel through the charming little hamlet of Carmel-by-the-Sea. The downtown and residential areas of this quaint little resort community has been used for scenes in It Seems Like Old Times, The Lady Says No, A Summer Place, Play Misty for Me and others!

Watch the actual scenes where they were originally filmed on overhead monitors inside the luxury high-back-seat touring coach.

Your trusted tour guide will lead you in a sing-along of some familiar show tunes, too!

Scheduled Stops

The first stop is at Bird Rock, the largest rock just offshore on the Monterey Peninsula and a resting place for many wonderful marine mammals including Harbor Seals, Sea Lions and precious little Sea Otters. A variety of birds including Black Brandt Cormorants and Pelicans can usually be spotted on the rock or frolicking in the waters just offshore. Love scenes between Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue in the movie "A Summer Place" took place on the beach in front of this rock.

Second stop is at the Lone Cypress Tree - one of the most treasured landmarks along California's coastline. This magnificent tree is one of the most photographed in the world and is more than 260 years old. It has been used as a scenic backdrop in several movies.

Your third stop will be at the world-renowned Lodge at Pebble Beach, originally built in 1919. You'll be able to walk out onto the back deck of the Lodge to view one of the greatest scenic settings in the world, the 18th hole of the famous Pebble Beach Golf Links. Several movie scenes have been filmed at the Lodge and on the 18th hole of this great golf course.
