    Well-informed and knowledgeable guide. It was leisurely paced which we loved, with no pressure to hurry-up. Thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour.
    You cannot miss this incredible experience while visiting Carmel/Monterey!

    The views were breathtaking. The sights stunning. What was truly remarkable about this experience was our guide, the incredible Monica Hudson. I knew we would be in a beautiful area but I had no idea we would be getting a history lesson! Not only did she tell us about the flora and the fauna in the area, she had insights into the history on how Carmel, Monterey, and Point Lobos came to be. Smart, witty, and funny, I felt as though I had spent two hours with an old friend. We will be back. I highly recommend! P.S. She has also written a book entitled “Point Lobos”, which she may have an extra copy of to sell, and if you’re lucky, she just might sign it!

    It was fun to join you and your fiends on the walk, especially as I always learn something new on the trail. It turned out to be a botanical adventure!
