Monterey Sightseeing Movie Bus Tour

Whether you're looking for an introductory scenic tour of the area, an alternative to attractions you've already seen or an exciting rainy day option, Monterey Movie Tours® is your ticket to a star-studded getaway! This fascinating two-tours-in-one outing features both magnificent landscapes and blockbuster scenes from some 200 movies filmed across the Monterey Peninsula.

Winding through Monterey, Pacific Grove and Carmel, this scenic tour also stops along the stunning 17-MILE DRIVE® in Pebble Beach. The three-hour adventure takes place aboard our multimedia Theater-On-Wheels® – a customized luxury motor coach with high-back seats, overhead video screens and personal headsets. As you glide past sites made famous on the big screen, you'll hear behind-the-scenes stories of Hollywood glamour.

This is a movie tour, and yet so much more – in fact, it's the ONLY daily guided tour of the Monterey Peninsula! And, Monterey Movie Tours® enhances the standard sightseeing experience with film clips showcasing this celebrated region in times past. Peek into The Lodge at Pebble Beach circa 1956, when Doris Day runs through the entry in the suspense drama, "Julie." Marvel at the fullness of the Lone Cypress Tree as Lana Turner passes by the landmark in "Mr. Imperium." Experience the sights and sounds that inspired John Steinbeck himself while watching Marilyn Monroe journey along Cannery Row in "Clash by Night."

Rating: 5 I Would Definitely Recommend Monterey Movie Tours!

  I had heard many wonderful comments about Monterey Movie Tours®, and so when a family member came from out of state for a visit, I decided to book the two of us. We had an absolutely terrific time! The driver (who was also the owner) was very friendly and knowledgeable. He even took our picture! I didn't realize just how many movies were actually filmed on the Monterey Peninsula. My mother-in-law loved watching the movie clips and seeing all the various sights, especially the Lodge at Pebble Beach. The seats on the bus were very comfortable as well. I not only learned quite a bit of movie trivia, I learned some wonderful history of the area. I would definitely recommend Monterey Movie Tours®!

  This is a must-see when you visit the Monterey Peninsula. Not only do you view some breathtaking scenery, but you learn a lot about the area that you would never find out on your own. Doug Lumsden, owner and operator, provides a wealth of information in his usual friendly, disarming way. Highlight: enjoy the view from the 18th green at Pebble Beach, up close and personal. Later, when you watch Tiger Woods walk the green on TV, you can say you were there. Doug, keep doing what you're doing. By the way, do you need any relief tour drivers?
