Big Sur Self-Driving Audio Tour in California (Highway 1, Pacific Coast Highway)

I made nearly every stop as well as many additional Vista points. This tour was everything I hoped it would be. I took a fairly deep dive- 9 hours from Carmel to San Simeon. I went back to San Luis Obispo and Morro Bay the second day. Well worth the money and a memorable experience- plus hundreds of photos!

App made it possible for us to listen to back stories and look out for places of interest. Well worth the price.

The view of the water, mountains, & bridges. Started out foggy in Spanish Bay but that was very cool. By the time we entered Carmel/Big Sur the sun was out & landscape gorgeous.

Excellent road trip, very informative which addressed areas of the route we would not have known or for that matter found.

I enjoyed the guide and the fact that it worked during spots where there was not cell phone reception, so we never missed a sight or explanation.

The app was excellent, worked really well and we discovered so many places along the route that we would have missed without it. It was so informative, the voice used is great and it is great value for money if you are taking the PCH. I highly recommend it!

We thought that for $ 10, we would care if it wasn’t useful but we really liked the app! 20 years ago we did the same route without the app and we just drove. Now we learnt about the area, and we knew where to stop. It is easy to use because the audio come up alone before you reach the interesting point. I really recommend it!

Best Value Ever! We downloaded this guide which was Good because the Internet service isn’t that great on Highway one California but the way the guide was set up it tells you about all these sites along the way and it was amazing I would have paid up to $400 for an in person guide, but instead with $10 we enjoyed a self-guided driving tour that was so much fun and very informative.

Informative narration that led us through Big Sur. The best part was that the various narrative segments would automatically begin once you reach that particular site.

Really happy we used the Monterey to Pismo Beach audio tour. It really added a LOT of substance to our 7 hour journey. It was wonderful that the narator knew when to talk about the next sight to see. I was a little unsure a few times, IF the audio tour was still working because of extended silence however, everything worked out. I recommend taking the south route as it was SO easy to pull off the road at every turn and passenger could see the view better.
