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

We were planning a trip with my sister who had never been on the coast. We contacted Dave and planned the day. As others have said he responded promptly and got everything set up with follow ups. 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. He is very knowledgeable about the area and the tour itself is one that you should not miss. We booked a four hour tour. It started in Carmel and went as... More

Called Dave & left a message during the afternoon on March 11 inquiring about any availabilities & he called later that day. I was happy to know that we could do it next day. Me & my wife both agree that the experience is worth the money, with Dave's knowledge, humor, & the scenery. He was flexible in that you... More

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 :)

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
