Fun unique experience!
, Oct 2021
Fun way to drive along coast of Monterey. Got lots of waves and smiles from people we passed by on the road.
Great views of ocean...
, Sep 2021
Great views of ocean boulevard from the sea car but otherwise very uncomfortable ride, difficult steering and hard to hear anything from the pre-programmed speaker because the sea car is so loud.
Good fun
, Aug 2021
I had an awesome time. However, the cars need to be serviced so they can easily go up hills or inclines.
Not impressed
, Aug 2021
Cars were not clean. Got topped off with gas right before. Got to smell gas the entire 20 minutes we used them. GPS didn’t work we were given a blue tooth speaker to connect to our phones that also didn’t work. Had to be looking at my phone the entire time wasn’t able to enjoy any of it so we decided to turn around and turn it back in early. We were not happy with the adventure. We have done this in San Francisco and we enjoyed it very much definitely recommend there.
Awesome, fun! Will definitely do it again!
, Jul 2021
So much laughter! Best part of my trip. Most fun with my daughter. Glad I went on Sunday and not Saturday as there was so much traffic on Saturday.
Would have booked a longer time
, Jul 2021
amazing and fun, the cars have a gps that takes and guides you to really nice location and beautiful views. you can park the cars and go out and explore as well depending on how long of a tour you book .
Lots of fun
, Jul 2021
We had a great time. I would do it again. We got to see how beautiful Monterey is. Definitely would tell family and friends !!
Hated it!
, Jun 2021
Picture makes it look like you are go driving out on the beach. Sorry these can’t go off road, they can only stay on the regular Street. So there you are doing about 25 mph while all the cars around you are doing 40 or better. I found it difficult to drive without prior motorcycle experience. You cannot hear the tablet. Decided to stop early and head back as we were hating every moment. Followed what directions we could hear on the tablet and got totally lost. I would not recommend this.

I have to question your level of intelligence, our web site is very clear on what to expect, there are several video clips showing what your experience will be. No where in Monterey are you allowed to drive on the beach! The driving could not be easier or simpler it’s automatic it is nothing even close to riding a motorcycle! You should consider staying at home or sticking to Disneyland type of adventures!

Riding next to the Ocean and looking at the beautiful homes, our vehicle was safe, and your company provided safety helmets for our comfort and confidence. We'll do it next time we visit. Recommend it to all of my friends!

We have never had a reservation from you. It would be a good idea to check that you are addressing the correct company before leaving reviews.

Car is very small hit by large truck
, Feb 2021
The car is very low to the ground which caused us to be hit from behind with a 4x4 truck while we were sightseeing. The car needs a flag on the back of it so other drivers can see you. My daughter had to keep her hand in the air to ensure we were seen
icon Response from Host , Feb 2021
You have never rented a car from our company so you must have been somewhere else! You should check where you are before leaving bad reviews for companies!
