I only have good things to say about Dave! He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The tour was more conversational and it was fun to hear all his anecdotes and chat about all the interesting history behind the various landmarks and seaside spots. Dave caters each tour to the match the group, so for us, we took a couple... More

Oh, it is so beautiful along Hwy 1 through Big Sur! There is so much to see, so many hidden little roads that lead to beautiful hikes, shady redwood groves, and other surprises. Unfortunately, it's very difficult to safely discover all this beauty if you're new to the area and especially if you're the driver. This was my dilemma as... More

Light tower that guides ships, scene you only see in movies or posters. Breath taking view and clean air. A must visit spot if you love nature.

For my Dad's 80th birthday we decided to visit the Big Sur area as a family and spend several days seeing the sites. Hiring Dave as our tour guide was the perfect way to venture and learn about the region with a very knowledgable local expert! He was able to accommodate our large party of 6 for two days of... More

When I was planning for my honeymoon, I didn't want to drive all the way from San Francisco to Big Sur. So, I thought it would be easier and more exciting to stay in Pacific Grove for couple of days and let Dave drive us from there to heaven. Dave knows everything about the place and he even tells us... More

Traveling to Big Sur with my two sisters we decided to take Dave's tour so no one would have to drive and we could all enjoy the awesome scenery. Dave is a very informative, friendly and personable guide. He showed us places we would never have dared to explore on our own. Treat yourself to a very SPECTACULAR EXPERIENCE!! Good... More

Dave the owner is a one man show, which makes his tours very interesting and personal. You travel in his own vehicle which is his own office on wheels. Since Dave lives in the area he has a more personal perspective of the area. He knows everyone by name, one of his good friends James is the concierge at the... More

My sister and I (early 20's) had never been to California before and found ourselves with a couple of tickets to the Coachella music festival and flights to San Fransico from London. Having not driven in the states before and desperately wanting to see the Big Sur in all it's glory we decided that a trip with Dave would be... More

Dave is more than just a tour guide. He is very personable and funny. I was on a time limit and needed to see the main hot spots. That is exactly what we did along with stop for a much desired glass of wine and cheese. I had a lovely time and saw aspects of Carmel, Monterey and Pebble beach... More

I had a great time driving along Highway One with Dave! Another crazy semester at Harvard is over and, before flying back to Europe for Christmas, I decided to spend a few days in Monterey and I couldn't have chosen a better guide for Big Sur. Incredibly knowledgeable, witty and professional -- and endorsed by National Geographic! --, Dave accommodated... More
