    No, vehicles carrying three or more people between 5am to 9am and 4pm to 6pm on weekdays (and with exception of seven observed holidays -- New Year's Day, Presidents' Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day) don't have to pay the toll.

    Assuming you're heading out from Las Vegas, I'd probably you drive over to Los Angeles and then make your way north along California Highway One. Not sure how long you have, but Santa Barbara is a really lovely place at which to stop. Maybe also spend a night or two up in the Big Sur area, before scheduling a stop in either Monterey or Carmel (Big Sur Nepenthe restaurant is a prime spot for a lunch stop with a view!). Carmel is very quaint and has some nice inns and guesthouses. You could also go a bit more upscale at somewhere like the Inn at Pebble Beach or Bernardus Lodge (http://away.com/resorts/bernardus-lodge-bl-hotelid53531.html) in this area. After Monterey, it's a fairly straight shot up to San Francisco, where you could obviously spend some more time sightseeing before flying out. Best advice, though, is not to overdo the driving and enjoy the scenery along this wonderful stretch of coastline (it can also get a little slow during peak travel seasonss).
