How else do you describe the best tour guide around. From the moment of pickup till we were dropped off, the entire day was very planned out and orchestrated yet went at our pace and interest. Dave listened and planned the stops on what he learned we were interested in seeing. He is not only a history buff on the... More

Dave is the best tour guide you can possibly find for a tour. If I could have Dave as my guide on every tour I would. If you're in California & can take this trip it's something to put every effort into trying to do. Big Sur was absolutely beautiful as well best thing I've laid my eyes upon in... More

No words can express our impression properly. Exciting tour with excellent guide. Do not miss this opportunity to visit The Big Sur with this amazing person. Dave really enjoys his job. He loves Monterey and California. He knows every place very well. Even in very short time he does his best. Enjoy th Big Sur with Dave!

Your best Big Sur experience will be with Dave. Not only is he exquisitely knowledgeable about Big Sur's terrain and history, but he is also personally known by the gallery, memorial library and special stops along the way - greated by proprietors with genuine warmth, collegial friendship, and moreover, great respect. His attention to detail was impressive, coupling music along... More

My friends and I were on a 7 night cruise along the West coast, visiting LA, Santa Barbara, Monterey, San Francisco and Ensenada. On our port stop in Monterey, we were escorted on a fabulous full day of adventure, education, and sightseeing by Dave of Big Sur Tours and More. I had contacted Dave almost 2 years prior to the...

After contact with Dave by phone & email, Dave after becoming aware of what we were interested in suggested ideas on times, routes & destinations. The outcome was a great tour which began with a pick-up in Monterey & a drive South through the picturesque peninsula & along the Northern coast of the Big Sur. The views were breathtaking, with...

If you want to see Big Sur by yourself, you can see a lot. If you want to see the places and photo ops you couldn't find yourself plus learn a lot about the Big Sur-Carmel area go with Dave. You will feel like an expert after you get back. Dave is also a boomer who has a lot in... More

Dave has been the right choice, he's very knoleadgeable, professional and has a witty humor that made us feel as if we had stepped right in the middle of a Woody Allen screenplay! He planned our day in advance and knew exactly where to stop so we wouldn't miss anything. I strongly recommend to book a customised tour with him... More

We didn't want to do research or try to find places to see in the short time we had in Carmel & Big Sur. Dave to the rescue!!!😄 Started from Carmel and went south for about 40 miles. Very knowledgeable, personable and has a great gift of telling stories about the area. We would not hesitate in recommending his services!
