Had a food and wine tasting tour today as part of a business event. Our group was led by "Mig" a very vivacious and well informed hostess. The food was great, the wine well chosen and overall just a fun time! I highly recommend Carmel Food Tours and Mig if you are in Carmel and would liken to sample some... More

The Carmel Food Tour is a wonderful way to experience the charming aspects of Carmel By The Sea, while sampling the best of several restaurants and speciality shops. Even though we live nearby, we saw many new places, and met wonderful people at the restaurants and shops. Tracy, our fantastic tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable, very funny, and managed the... More

Carmel is a charming little town, and I'm glad that we spent the time to visit. We got there a bit early and walked around on our own. There really didn't seem to be much going on or anything of too much interest. However, once we met up with our guide Stacey, she showed us otherwise. She took us around... More

I took this tour with my daughter and we both were delighted. Neither one us knew our way around Carmel so this was not only an opportunity to sample great food, it was a way to become familiar with Carmel. The food was amazing and a great variety. Although I cannot drink alcohol, Mig was so thoughtful to be sure... More

I went on this tour on June 28 with my husband and a friend - we all had a great time! Even though we live near by, we learned new things, saw lovely secret passage ways, went to some new places and had delicious food! Tracy was the perfect guide, knowledgeable but not preachy, friendly, and engaging plus she has... More

Highly recommend this tour! The perfect way to experience a weeks worth of this unique city all in one day. Our tour guide was Mig and she is outstanding! Each dining location really has it's own personality that was captured flawlessly throughout the day. The tour is elegant, exciting and a lot of fun. An excellent experience I would love... More

My mother and I took this tour and we both loved it! Mig, our amazing tour guide, took us to some amazing places in Carmel-By-the-Sea that we would never found ourselves. She was ever attentive to our personal needs and the needs of the group. As a native of Carmel, she was able to share insight and knowledge that only... More

Although I've grown up on the Central Coast, and been to Carmel many times, I've never truly known about the many gems the seaside town has to offer until I spent the afternoon on a Carmel Food Tour. Our little group was met by our bubbly and informative guide, Migdalia, who led us through the fairy-tale streets of Carmel. The... More

If you're headed to Carmel with no idea of where to go to eat and drink, this is a must. Mom and I went down for a belated mother's day getaway and had an absolute good time. We got to try some of the best Carmel has to offer and learn learn about places we would have never had the... More

Wow! Yesterday my fiancee and I took the three hour food tour of Carmel. It was my first such tour, and it was fantastic. First of all, Carmel lends itself to such a tour because of it's walkability and infinite quaintness. Our guide, the knowledgable and effervescent Mig (Migdalia) was a bundle of fun, detailed information and a great sense... More
