Dave’s Big Sur tour Dave was a fantastic tour guide! He was very knowledgeable about every part of the trip. He entertained us with his quick wit and funny stories. We did the 17 mile drive and Big Sur and he stopped at fun places along the way. You HAVE to request Dave as your tour guide! The only complaint we had is that it didn’t last long enough—we didn’t to want to leave Dave! Highly recommend!kayclaus501/12/2020

17 Mile tour Dave was very informative and had a great sense of humor. He took us thru 17 mile pebble beach tour and Carmel. It was a great way to see and learn about the area.RickandJJ6/26/2019
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING TOUR!! When my husband and I decided on Monterey-Carmel-Big Sur for our 26th Anniversary trip, choosing a Big Sur tour was our #1 priority! After Reading several reviews on trip advisor, we decided on Big Sur Tours & More with Dave Engleberg! Dave definitely lived up to his reputation as an expert on not only Big Sur but the BEATLES as well! While enjoying the majestic views of Big Sur, we listened to Dave's commentary along with the Beatles Classics! We highly recommend Dave as an expert tour guide and very safe driver on your tours of Big Sur, Carmel, Pebble Beach & Monterey!AJAYColumbus7/20/2019

“Hi Dave! Just to let you know how much we enjoyed the Monterey-Carmel-Big Sur-San Luis Obispo tour with you. Sitting on the wooden chairs with our feet in the river was definitely our idea of a good time. I salute you for the very smooth ride at Big Sur. You handled those treacherous curves with the quiet confidence of a pro.

|Dear Dave, Traveling up the California coast (from L.A. to Hearst Castle and Big Sur) with you as guide, friend, and driver were the two top days of our visit to California. Unbeatable as a way to see the sights without being herded into a big package tour or driving yourself and losing out on all the beauty that surrounds you. A great memory.|

“Our family wanted to see Big Sur but my husband did not want to make the drive. He heard it was dangerous and he would miss much if he were driving. Our day with Dave was a highlight of our summer vacation. We got to relax and enjoy the ride. Dave knew places “off the beaten path” we never would have gotten to see without him. We were having such a great time we extended the hours from what we originally planned. We will call Dave again on future visits.”
