About
Experience the iconic Big Sur road trip with a self-guided driving audio tour! As you drive, learn about the fairytale cottages of Carmel, the purple sand at Pfeiffer Beach, & the enormous elephant seals at San Simeon. Drive over Bixby Bridge, marvel at McWay Falls, & enjoy the rugged coastline along the Pacific Coast Highway / Route 1. Big Sur is the most scenic segment of the Pacific Coast Highway(a must-do roadtrip),which you can start in either Monterey or San Luis Obispo. Within 30 min, we'll send you two things: a unique password & an app. Download the app,enter password, & download the tour. When you arrive, head over to the first stop. Stick to the route & speed limit for the best experience. ALERT: Highway partially closed due to storm damage. Purchase one tour per car, not per person. Everyone can listen together! No expiration-the tour is available from the minute you book until forever! This isn't an entrance ticket. Check COVID rules & opening hours before your visit.

Learned stuff right away, interesting stuff!
Sep 2020 • Couples
We used the reverse course, since we were staying in Pismo Beach. We were really looking forward to tour. We’ve done the drive a few times, but maybe we missed some interesting stops?
We got started are learned stuff right away! Some of the stories that are included are very interesting...unfortunately, our timing was bad.
We were in the area during some of the California wildfires. We were stopped and unable to continue the tour just north of San Simeon.

We are planning to go back another time and will definitely give this tour another try then!

Hello,

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip. However, the app suggested for travel was underwhelming and did not work.

Thank you,
