I decided to take my sister and mom on the Carmel Food Tour. Two of us were vegetarian and the tour was very accommodating of our dietary restriction. We all had a wonderful time and really enjoyed learning more about Carmel and trying new restaurants. It was my second time doing the tour and I had fun going again and... More

Our family had a wonderful tour and learned a lot of information about the area. The tour is well worth the cost and the tour guides are extremely pleasant. We recommend the experience, a nice way to taste a variety of foods.

Talk about a great time, Carmel Food Tours is a great way for anyone visiting (or living in Carmel) to get a great background tour of the town and enjoy some great food and drink along the way. Mig, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, friendly and enormously entertaining. The stops are well planned and the food/drink delicious. The walk was... More

I've lived on the Monterey Peninsula for nine years and thought I knew quite a bit about Carmel. This tour opened my eyes to new restaurants, retail shops, passages, and people, not to mention new wines and tasty treats! Staci did a wonderful job of entertaining, enlightening, and making this a truly memorable experience. If you haven't had the pleasure... More

My husband and I spent our 5th Anniversary on the Carmel Food Tour with guide, Mig and 8 other people. Mig was fantastic - friendly, knowledgeable and a true "foodie." One of our stops was at Trio (3rd stop) to do an olive oil tasting. I wasn't sure that I would enjoy this BUT I was wrong. It was one... More

My husband and I recently went on our first food tour and we were so fortunate to enjoy it in Carmel-By-The-Sea with a group of enjoyable people. Our host was Mig and she was the perfect guide. She was friendly and down-to-earth and made every single person on the tour feel welcome, included, and important. What a gift! She brought... More

This was a nice way to start our trip and learn about Carmel by the Sea (who knew they didn't have addresses?). We sampled food and drinks from 9 different establishments over the three hour tour. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a jacket as it can get chilly.
