This was one of, if not the best, tour I've ever been on. The food was great! Staci is amazing and fun to be around. Thanks so much for making our trip to California memorable.

We are locals so we thought we knew about Carmel's food scene but this tour really showed us a lot of places we would never have visited. Our hostess, Tracy, was very knowledgeable, friendly and cordial and made us feel at ease with asking questions. Food and wine was great. A great way for tourists and locals to get quick... More

This walking tour was fabulous!! The businesses we visited and the people at all of them were great! Don't worry about bringing a teen, ours really enjoyed it and the businesses that gave samples of their alcoholic beverages TOTALLY accommodated him. Worth every penny and is a must do!!

Either if you are vacationing or just passing thru Carmel, the Food Tour is a must. Staci, our tour guide, provided us stories of Carmel, while we walk thru passages and the beautiful streets of Carmel. The tour includes stops in well known Restaurants like Anton & Michelle, Casanova and interesting shops like Trio where we tasted ice cream with... More

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
