After breakfast the choice is yours! Take an hour-long cruise on San Francisco Bay featuring an in-depth narration on its history and landmarks including Alcatraz* and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Travel to Carmel-by-the-Sea, populated by creative locals who take pride in offering one-of-a-kind items and experiences. Enjoy time to explore and have lunch on your own before venturing to the Point Lobos State Natural Reserve. Take a leisurely hike amid beautiful headlands, coves and rolling meadows. From here we set out on the famed 17-Mile Drive, along one of the most breathtaking coastlines in the world. During our drive you will pass through the Del Monte Forest and see such famous sights as the Lone Cypress Tree, Seal Rock (where the seals may actually bark at you) and the prestigious Pebble Beach Golf Course. End your day in Monterey, a place often called the greatest meeting of land, sea and sky. Time is available to independently explore charming Monterey and shop at Cannery Row, made famous by John Steinbeck.

Day 4

Day 4: Monterey - San Simeon - Santa Barbara

Upon arrival in San Simeon, visit one of the world’s greatest showplaces, the palatial mountaintop retreat of Hearst Castle, a National Historic Landmark. Built by newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, the castle was built on a 40,000 acre ranch that Hearst frequently camped on as a child. Hearst was constantly building and rebuilding what he simply called "the ranch." As a result, the estate was not completed during Hearst's lifetime and was donated to the State of California in 1957. Explore some of its 165 rooms and 127 acres of gardens, terraces, pools and walkways. Later, drive north to Ragged Point to view more of the coast. Then we head south towards enchanting Santa Barbara, famous for its dramatic mix of mountains, valleys, beaches, islands and the sea.

It is often called the “Queen of the Missions.” Visit a local farm and gather for a special olive oil tasting made from olives grown there; learn about the different oils from a local expert. Explore the famous Santa Ynez wine valley, making a stop at a vineyard for a wine tasting before returning to Santa Barbara. After dinner with a view of the waterfront, stroll the downtown area laced with pedestrian-friendly sidewalks and paseos, with the ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains as a lovely backdrop.
