Mendo Insider Tours Owner David Lipkind


Dave first started thinking about his own tour company after returning from a trip to Paracho, Mexico, where he went to purchase a custom-made Cuban Tres guitar. When he returned to Mendocino, he saw it with new eyes: as a destination where travelers come to experience art and nature. In Dave’s words, “I started to think about how I could help visitors enjoy the kind of experience I had in Mexico.”
