Doin' Monterey In The Dark”

I can't profess to be a paranormal expert, but I do love all things goofy, historical, and spook-tacular, particularly if a guide establishment can successfully manage to provide all three of these things at the same time. So I was pleasantly surprised to find myself flying through the dusky streets of Monterey in a modified trolley bus with ominous music blasting from the speakers above my head. What I really loved - I mean, really, REALLY loved about this tour - was the historical lesson that it ended up to be. I was able to see moonlit historical landmarks of Monterey that I had never seen before. And yes, the city is still just as beautiful in the dark. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and just funny enough. I would recommend this tour to anyone, except maybe very small children. So if you ever find yourself pining for a trip to Monterey, wanting to learn more about the morbid historical side of the area, wishing to search out paranormal experiences with no fancy technology or gimmicks, or all of the above, this tour will fit your needs nicely.
