We celebrated my bachelorette party this weekend and decided to try Carmel Food Tours. I have been to Carmel many of times and most of my friends are from the Bay Area, but we had never seen or experienced Carmel like this before. We had so much fun with our tour guide Mig, she was so knowledgeable and made the... More

Such a fun way to see Carmel with friends! I highly recommend this tour! Stacey was delightful and everything worked perfectly. Each stop, we were made to feel special. The staff had everything ready and waiting for us! Plus, we learned so many interesting facts about Carmel and the restaurant scene. Have you ever had flavored olive oil on ice... More

All past reviews were right on the money. Great food and wine tour. Fun, informative, filling and unique. Interesting history of Carmel. Stacie was entertaining and very knowledgeable. If your on the fence about trying this, put your concerns behind you, you'll have a great time. Keep your diet in a box.

This wine and food tour was one of the best and fun experiences I have had. I went with two friends and we weren't sure what to expect. We went on the tour with the greatest guide, Mig. She was fun and very informative about the places we visited and Carmel itself. I have been to Carmel many times in... More

I have visited Carmel many times, but never knew all the wonderful somewhat hidden treasures there are! Our tour guide, Mig, (The Bubbly One!) was fantastic and introduced us to places in Carmel you might not find otherwise. The tour was fun and informative and the food was fantastic. We even tasted a Manhatten at Terry's Lounge at The Cypress... More

My daughter and I did the tour with Mig, unfortunately, on the last day of our visit....we certainly should have done it on the first day. The tour was very informative, and such fun! .....and, may I add..delicious! We certainly would have revisited the restaurants toured if we weren't leaving for home that day. I highly recommend the Carmel Food... More

What a great way to experience several restaurants and shops in Carmel. Mig was our guide and she was great! We had a wonderful time tasting yummy food and beverages (some of which I may never have tried if it wasn't for this tour), and walking through some beautiful areas of Carmel. We went back to one of the restaurants... More
