Based on the glowing reviews here, I attempted to book their Lost Coast Eco Tour. Things went off the tracks immediately. First, I called twice and e-mailed once (no one ever answered the phone number on their website!) before I got a cryptic response from their Office Manager indicating my request had been forwarded on to the owner. When I... More

David L, Owner at Mendo Insider Tours-Day Tours, responded to this review

This couple conveniently failed to mention they bought a Groupon voucher for this tours. The stipulation on the voucher clearly states that there was a minimum requirement of 6 people needed to be booked to send out this tour. The fact that they did not read this part of the offer is regretful but not our fault. More

We booked two vans with David for our daughter's wedding to haul guests from Ft Bragg up the coast so the guests could partake without having to drive. He and his staff managed the movement of 30+ people to and from the wedding and reception perfectly. Nice to have someone who does what he promises and more.

The shuttle was on time, comfortable, clean, and fit our large group nicely. During our 2 hour ride, Montana, our driver, was very personable and made sure we were all safe and comfortable, and drove the steep, windy... More

What an amazing experience! David and Evan picked us up in the morning and off we sped in the Mendo Insider van, north to the Lost Coast. David's expert driving soon brought us off-road into the twisty-turny, unpaved heart of Sinkyone Wilderness State Park, while the very affable Evan regaled us with in-depth information about its background and natural history....

The day after we were married in the Mendocino area, Jim picked us up for our Anderson Valley wine tour. We had a very enjoyable day that included three wineries, a picnic lunch in the country, a redwood forest, and lots of beautiful coastal views. Jim was very accommodating, provided much history and factoids about the area as we travelled,... More
