Nice enhancement to a magical drive. The narrative and description of the scenery was accurate as we moved along the PCH.

So glad you enjoyed the tour! Big Sur is absolutely my favorite part of the PCH road trip. You may like my tours of other parts of the PCH too! I’ve covered everything between SF and LA. The tours are listed on the account here and on the website.

This GPS tour was great. During our trip we would look forward to the next talking point between stops and it really made our long drive feel shorter and more exciting. The California coast is beautiful and historic and it's really neat to know more about this land with the help
