WINE TROLLEY - Join us for an unforgettable journey sampling wine in the alluring beauty of Carmel Valley aboard “Glory the Magnificent Trolley”, “Mona Lisa Trolley”, "Mounia the Double Decker Bus" or "The Wine Van".. We rendezvous in front of the Wharf Market Place - 209 Figueroa St., Monterey CA (MAP) at 10:45 AM for the 11:00 AM tour and whisk you off for TASTINGS, GREAT FOOD and A LOT of WINE APPRECIATION. Our tour guides offer an insider's perspective on the well-known producers and provides an introduction to the lesser known gems that call Carmel Valley home. We travel over the Salinas Mountains or down the Pacific Coast Highway #1 for inspiring vistas and local history as we enter into Carmel Valley. We'll have many opportunities for tasting the region's finest wines at the many tasting rooms in the Carmel Valley Village including: Cima Collina, Coastview Vineyards, Marilyn Remark, Joyce Vineyards, Chesebro Wines, Parsonage Vineyards, Bernardus Winery, Boekenoogen Winery, Rombi Estate Wines, Idle Hour, Chock Rock Vineyards, Twisted Roots, Cow Girl Winery, Talbott Vineyards, Myka Cellars/Bunter Springs Winery and Heller Estate Organic Vineyards. Not all wine tasting rooms are open 7 days a week. You will then be returned to the Wharf Market Place - 209 Figueroa St., Monterey CA with all the wonderful memories, new friends and wines you have collected. We may use a 15 passenger VAN or our NEW Double Decker Bus instead of the Trolley depending on weather or total daily participation. We must have at least 4 total daily participants to conduct a tour. No food is permitted on our vehicles other than the Trolley Platters provided by Tours Monterey. GHOST TOURS OF OLD MONTEREY - Relive the fantastic tales of Old Monterey. Once the capitol of Mexican California, Old Monterey was the center of fiestas and balls, the glamour of dashing Spanish horsemen and the throb of guitars played by romantic suitors. It was also a town of intrigue, murder, swindles and shipwrecks. Epic lives full of lost treasures, found romance, and amazing adventures. Visit the sites of the ghost in the garden, ancient burial grounds, hidden treasure, hauntings, hangings and frequent ghostly sightings. This 90 minute trolley tour, led by longtime residents and local historians, will bring you into a Monterey that few alive today have seen.
