Fantastic Tour
Our guide (Kimberly?) was excellent—informative and entertaining. The 17 Mile Drive was stupendous—exciting waves and beautiful views. The bikes were in excellent condition—RAD’s are fantastic bikes. Highly recommend this tour.

Wonderful Bike Ride
Our ride started on time, the guide Jonathan was very energetic and knowledgeable on several things in the area. The electric bikes my the ride very easy, so we didn't exhaust ourselves during the ride. If it's windy you will definitely need a jacket.

Awesome eBike Tour of 17 Mile Drive and Pet Friendly!
Sep 2021
We had to cancel our South Tahoe rental for Labor Day weekend 2021 on very short notice due to wildfires, smoke, and evacuations. The upcoming weekend was looking bleak. In a mad scramble to find a smokeless alternative destination, we opted for Monterey. We found this cool 17 Mile Drive eBike tour and thought we'd give it a shot even though it was so last minute. I can't say enough how great the experience was from the start to finish. Joaquin was able to accommodate our group despite us attempting to book only 3 days before a busy holiday weekend. With a little shuffling and a couple of phone calls, he was able to get us booked on a Saturday morning tour. All the staff Saturday morning were very friendly, helpful, and patient with our group and got us situated right away. Victor our tour guide was the best, so much great information and took us to all the best spots along our 17 Mile Drive tour route. Added bonus, I don't think it's mentioned on their website, but they're PET FRIENDLY. Bring your fur babies along for the ride! They have pet trailers and rack mount pet carriers for smaller dogs (or cats) for a small additional fee.

*One thing I don't recommend, and this is nothing negative reflected on the Big Sur Adventures staff, I recommend against large groups like us, 17 total (adults & kids) w/ dogs. With our large group and it being a busy weekend, there was a lot traffic (autos and bikes) along the route. Our group had gotten split up a few times while riding because of busy intersections, slower cyclists, etc. At one point a small portion of our group didn't know which way the rest of the group turned at an intersection, if it wasn't for Find My iPhone, we wouldn't have been able to locate them. Logistically it's tough to manage a group this large. If you do plan to do a large group tour make sure to setup Location Sharing on your phones first or maybe just plan the tour on a weekday rather than a weekend.

The best way to see 17 Mile Drive
Aug 2021
We had so much fun on our e-bike tour with Victor. The bikes were sturdy and comfortable and we made stops and learned little bits and pieces about the terrain and the history of the area. Beautiful views of the ocean all along the way. Victor was really attentive to what everyone wanted and made it a great trip. On the way back we cruised almost all the way and the e-bikes made it a breeze.
Definitely dress in layers and give yourself 15 minutes or so to arrive and test out your bike.

Worth every cent! Do this tour! You will love it!
This was an amazing tour. The scenery along the way was gorgeous. The tour guide was informative and attentive to our safety and fun. We were given water and snacks at the beginning of the tour. A tutorial and practice ride was provided before we headed out. The bikes are easy to ride and you barely have to pedals, only if you wanted to. It was not strenuous at all. Do bring along a jacket. It gets windy along the coast. You do ride along with traffic at some points, but a group as large as ours was easily seen and the cars were very respectable to our group as well as the other bikers riding along these paths. I never felt unsafe. I would totally recommend this tour.

Aug 2021
We had a blast on our e-bike tour along 17 Mile Drive. The scenery is second to none, then bikes were fabulous and our tour guide was very devoted to giving us the best experience possible. We would highly recommend this trip. Dress for it with layers. Lots of brief stops along the way to take some pictures, drink some water or have a snack. A great way too spend a half day in the Bay area.

Dangerous! You are riding in traffic next to and amongst cars most of the ride.
Aug 2021 • Couples
The bikes were great. This is definitely not a safe tour. You are riding ON the street NEXT to cars! There were several times cars would get dangerously close to us which made it very hard to relax and enjoy the ride. At one stop sign a car almost ran into us. Its not like this through the entire ride but for more then half you are riding in traffic amongst cars who are looking at the scenery as well. Not safe! Also our guide hardly looked back at all to make sure all were safe. At one point my helmet fell off in the beginning of the ride the entire tour just kept riding to where we couldn't see them. Thankfully they were at a stop at least 2 miles ahead and we caught up. If we would have made a wrong turn we would have lost them. Guide was nice but truly in his own world not paying attention to the safety of his riders. He blew through stop signs like they werent there. Each stop was super quick and as soon as he got on his bike to leave which was extremely quick he was gone never looking back! Never waited to for everyone to get on their bikes he just left as if he was on his on tour. There should be a guide in the front and back especially with this guy but there isnt. Beautiful scenery but definitely hard to enjoy when your trying to keep up and hurry at each stop and avoiding being hit by a car. Would not recommend for families as the people with children tandem were really struggling. They dont give you time to practice riding so if you have never ridden a ebike you truly better be a fast learner!

Fun and easy bike tour
Aug 2021
If you are looking for an easy fun bike tour of 17 mile drive and with various parts of Monterey, Big Sur Adventures is the place to go. My wife and I (60's) just did the electric bike tour yesterday and it was a blast. The team at Big Adventure is very helpful and friendly. They want to make sure you feel safe on the bike, explain the functions of use and mainly, enjoying the ride. Our guide was, Victor, who was not only friendly and professional, he truly loves want he does. During the stops he will share his vast knowledge of each site. Victor has a great ability to connect with people at any age and make sure everyone it having a great time. The tour itself is about 3 1/2 hours with stops for pictures along the way. Were stopped at a market /Gift store in Pebble beach for a 15 - 20 minute break. Good place for a sandwich. The ride itself is fairly easy. Even if you haven't ridden a bike in while, the few hills you encounter aren't that tough. My only suggestion would be to pay the extra for the electric bike rental. It makes the ride that much more enjoyable.
