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!

There are popular tourist points as well. Bixby Bridge, McWay waterfall etc. There are various hiking trails along the roads which... More

We came across Dave's name while planning for our trip to Carmel. We wanted to see the coast without having to drive it ourselves. From the start, we felt Dave was the right choice. He made sure he knew what we wanted to see and planned the tour accordingly. The views were absolutely amazing! He knew right where to stop... More

Back in February, I researched and emailed Dave regarding his Big Sur Tours. I had been to San Francisco and fell in love with it, but my friend informed me that I should really take the Big Sur trip south if I wanted to really get the California feel for scenery. This motivated me to find someone, a person, not... More

My wife and I had never been to the west coast north of LA. I wanted to drive the coast with some guidance so as to not miss anything. The truth is that the unparalleled beauty of the area is so astounding that it speaks for itself, but that doesn't stop Dave from filling in the gaps with his own... More

I had been planning a trip to California for a while, but not being able to drive I was wondering how I would get to see the Big Sur/route 1. Knowing there wasn't really a public transportation option, I was so happy when I found Dave's tour on the web and I knew it would be money well spent as... More

My daughter and I were staying in Carmel and took a four hour tour covering the Big Sur coastline south of there with Dave - and it was definitely money and time well spent! We had a great day - Dave is a wonderful host and very knowledgeable about the area/history etc. The weather was really good so visibility was... More

It was terrific. He knows all the great spots and is a wonderful font of information. We had been thru big sur in... More

Big Sur is a must if you are visiting San Francisco, I 101 has one of the best scenic drives & even if you dont drive there are lots of places including Pebble beach to go for. I drove from Cupertino till the falls in Big Sur. The view from Bixby Bridge is far better than near Rocky Creek Bridge.There... More

My wife and I booked our tour with Dave and couldn't be more pleased with the tour and in dealing with Dave. Dave was very easy to deal with.
