We had such a great three hour tour with Dave. We got to see a lot of really, really beautiful places. California has the most astonishing coast line we've ever seen! We also got to see the city of Monterey and Carmel. Dave really impressed us and we highly recommend this tour to anyone in the Carmel / Monterey /... More

This past Saturday, my two girls, ages 11 and 14, spent the day with Dave exploring Big Sur. I was a little hesitant after arriving in San Francisco the afternoon before our trip and having to rent a car and drive to meet Dave whether this would be too much. It was all worth it. Dave made it seamless! He... More

Very scenic drive. It is packed and make sure you have saved yourself a day. Whales were going up the coast by Cambria. Don't drink a lot of fluids cause bathrooms are a problem!

We did a 5.5 hours tour with Dave starting at Carmel and ending at SLO along Highway 1 on July 8th 2016. The tour Dave set up for us was far better than we could ever expect (and we had very high expectations!). You have to see the scenery life because the photos don't live up to the breathtaking reality!... More

We recently took a family trip to the California coast. After two nice days in Monterey and Carmel, we had Dave pick us up and drive down to Big Sur. We started early, and headed to one of his favorite breakfast spots. Everyone got acquainted quickly, as Dave is fun, and very engaging. Our 2 teenagers became comfortable in no... More

This was one of the best travelling experience I had in a long time and it was worth every minute. Rather than just a sight seeing, which is breathtaking, it was also more informational and fun experience. If you are in town and up for a tour, Dave is your guy because he will make your tour fun filled and... More

Enjoy the scenic view of the winding road by the pacific ocean. Make stops to enjoy the freshness of the breeze and beauty of the ocean.

I ran into Dave in my hotel lobby, and although I wasn't able to take his formal tour, he took the time to tell me about the best spots. In ten minutes he plotted out some amazing points on my map! I went exploring and was so inspired. Highly recommend Big Sur Tours and more!!

My family and I have been to the west coast several times and wanted a new adventure. I contacted Dave and our trip was set, no worries, no fuss! Dave picked us up at our hotel and we were on our way, Carmel by the Sea, and Big Sur. For the first time on any trip I did not have... More
