I tried things that I would never have tried otherwise, and I was greatly rewarded with an amazing culinary experience. Stacy knew the history, and... More

This is a must for visitors and locals alike! Mig is precious, knowledgable, friendly, and bubbly - but also lets us enjoy each stop to its fullest. This tour has a little history, a little flavor, and lots of Carmel ambience. It showed us how many amazing places there are to discover in Carmel. Thanks, Mig!!

The best part of the Carmel Food Tour: the food (yes), the wine (yes), our guide (yes). Okay, it was all great. But one very fun thing was being shown several of the hideaway "alleys" in Carmel and the fun finds down each one. I will do this tour again and take guests. Wonderful stuff.

What a GREAT time we had on our "food tour" of Carmel. Our OUTSTANDING guide...Mig showed us 3 hours of some of the BEST restaurants in Carmel. Can't say enough about how knowledgeable she was about the area. We found out "lots" of facts about Carmel that we did not know. I must say we were never bored....we all could... More

Our tour was led by Staci, who led us around the town with a combination of facts, humor and personality. The time to take the tour was the right length. The amount of food and beverage provided was filling but not debilitating. The tour and businesses visited were very accommodating of those with special food / drink requirements. Getting an...

This tour was a delight. I've lived in the area about six months, and I learned so much about Carmel and the great restaurants and things to see in town I am now kicking myself for not doing this tour when I first arrived. The out-of-towners loved it as well. Very professional staff, informative, and easy. Recommended for everyone who... More
