My wife and I believe Dave is the Big Sir of Big Sur. We spent a wonderful day travelling this magnificant coastline. Dave is extremely knowledgeable, obliging and helpful. I wanted to shoot pictures and he knew all the best vantage points. I am delighted with the results.

My husband and I recently visited Big Sur California for the first time. We booked a tour with Dave's Big Sur Tours and More. We couldn't have been happier with the experience. Dave planned the tour around our interests and we were able to take in the beauty of Carmel, Pebble Beach and Big Sur while Dave filled us in... More

For three people in our mid twenties on a limited budget - and with no car(!) - California and Big Sur imparticular, posed quite a challenge. There is very little available for tourists without a car in terms of tours like this, and Dave's business came incredibly highly recommended from a range of sources. Luckily, the trip did not disappoint.... More

This was an absolutely fabulous trip down the Big Sur. We travelled in a 7 seater car/ minibus with 3 other people. The tour guide, Adam was very informative, obviously passionate about the journey and the scenery and knew exactly where to stop for the best photo opportunities. We spent the first night in Monterey at the Best Western Victorian... More

Dave was a great driver and we were able to relax and take in the beauty of the Big Sur. He accommodated our preferences about what to see and do. He also took some good pics of us so we have some wonderful memories of this part of CA.

Dave was able at accommodate my husband and I with a Big Sur tour at the last minute. Dave is doing something that he loves to do, and it shows. My husband and I enjoyed our day. We were able to sit back and relax and not have to worry about the curves of the PCH. Dave took us to... More

I took the Big Sur tour with Dave and it was fantastic. It was great to see the beautiful scenery and not have to drive. I was even able to see two condors while on the drive. It is far too dangerous to focus on driving the winding road and to also take in the scenery. Dave provided a tremendous... More

My husband and I had been to Big Sur two times before and wanted our 20-year old son to experience the unparalleled beauty of this place. Despite our familiarity with the area we knew we had missed a lot in the past because of the need to concentrate on the twists and turns of Highway 1. With Dave we had... More

Dave gave us a wonderful day of memories. He helped us design a custom tour of Monterrey, Pebble Beach, Carmel, and then all the way down to Big Sur for much sightseeing and lively background talk. He also helped to get in quick lunch reservations and dining for the famous Greek named restaurant at Big Sur. He also showed us... More

We booked Dave for the Big Sur tour before we left the UK. We wanted someone who knew the area and he certainly did! We had such an amazing day! He knew the best places to stop and from talking to him before and on the morning he picked us up he was able to gauge what we were wanting... More
