I had a magical journey from Santa Monica to Esalen with Dave! Dave seemed to tailor this trip for me as it unfolded. I especially enjoyed the music soundtrack and Dave's sense of humour :)

My husband Tim and I traveled to Monterey in October and we were without a vehicle and wanted to see the Big Sur and 17 Mile Pebble Beach and Carmel, we knew nothing of the area and needed a driver and someone who knew all the good places to go and see everything, well, we were so lucky!!! Dave picked... More

I booked a one-day tour with Dave for my relatives from San Cruz to Paso Robles. It was my relatives' highlight of their 10-day trip to California! One of them even said it was the most beautiful scenery she had seen in her life. In fact, all they talk about since then is that we have to do the same... More

We were advised to do The Big Sur during our California visit. We almost did it with another company but they proved totally disorganised. Thankfully we found Dave who proved all the positive Reviews were spot on. Towards the end of our 3 week trip we took the Amtrex Coastal Starlight Train to San Luis Obispo and stayed overnight in...

I decided at the last minute to book Dave's Big Sur tour and I am really glad I did. Dave knows all the special spots and best views and he will snap a few photos of you as well. With Dave at the wheel I was free to take in all the beauty of the dramatic coastline. He is very... More

I want to to a moment and thank Dave of Big Sur Tours and More. I recently had the opportunity to contract his services to take me through Big Sur and I had an excellent time! It was exactly what I was looking for: Someone who was knowledgeable about the area, who was flexible in what we saw and did,... More

I had really been wanting to see the Big Sur in the short amount of time we had. Dave was very accommodating to make the tour happen. He was extremely informative and a great guide through the Big Sur. My friends and I had a great time driving down with him. We still can't stop talking about how beautiful it... More

It’s been twenty long days now since I drove Big Sur with Dave; I still think about the experience every day and am guaranteed to do so for the foreseeable future. Since I came back from holiday, I’ve been working full time and I’ve been quite nervous about reviewing such an awesome trip whilst trapped in the hustle and bustle... More
