We are OPEN and SAFE!

Recently we have been given the go ahead by local authorities to re-open following strict state and local guidelines. To make sure we are staying safe and providing a great experience at the same time, we are re-opening in stages. See below for status of different tour types. This is a dynamic list and as time passes more tours will become open.


Status of Different Tour Types

Guided Kayak Tours - OPEN

Guided Day Bike Tours - OPEN, but some only available certain days with modifications. We can cycle the route on all wine country tours, but not all wineries may be available for tasting or some may require advance reservations. Some wine country bike tours are only available certain days and may have lunch modifications. On many wine country tours we will also have to make a reservation in advance for lunch and can only confirm after contacting the lunch winery. Here is a current list of tour status:

Guided Day Hike Tours - OPEN. Our Hike: Big Sur Ecotour is now available with some minor restrictions. The main parking area at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park and the short trail to McWay Falls Overlook and the Waterfall House are closed. We can see McWay Falls from a pullout on the highway nearby. All other trails we typically use are open. If we have you in one of our company vehicles, both you and the guide will be wearing face masks and the windows will be partially rolled down. Group size is limited to 6 people.

Guided Multi-Day Bike Tours - CLOSED.

Self Guided Multi-day Bike Tours - OPEN. Hotel trips are currently OK but camping trips may need to spend certain nights in hotel as not all campgrounds are open. Here is list of California state park campgrounds that are open. If are looking at an itinerary that has a lot of wine country cycling, please be aware that although most wineries are open, many have restricted hours and may require reservations.
