If you have the time, this is a great way to spend two hours one morning. Gale, the guide, is very knowledgeable helpful and upbeat. She gave some great background on local history, and showed us places we might otherwise not see. I would have preferred walking around more areas of the town, and less visits to local galleries, but... More

It was worth it, even in the rain :-). Kelley was very informative. Gave us tips where to go, what to do after the walk. The walk set me up for my first visit of Carmel. He knew a lot if history that he shared with our group.

We met in the Pine Inn Courtyard on Ocean Ave. There were about 12 in the group. The tour was a... More

Gael is a fabulous tour guide! This is a must-do before you spend any time in Carmel. You get a Wonderful history of the area, and see SO many things. It is fun, because after the tour, you can take your time and revisit your favorite areas! Wear very good walking shoes as it is very fast-paced and you go... More

My wife and I overall thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour. Gael was very personable and knowledgeable regarding the history of Carmel, its people and architecture. It was fun walking about and through many inns, galleries and restaurants in the business district. And in this was the disappointment -- the tour does not leave the central town business distric and venture... More

Our group of 12 ladies booked a private tour with Gael and we had a wonderful time. Gael provides a great tour of carmel, private little gardens, galleries, bed and breakfasts, historial hotels and even let us ring the bell at the Church. Another highlight was while standing in front of City Hall, the mayor walked out and took pictures... More

My friend and I were fortunate enough to have Gael to ourselves the day we booked. But Gael would be just as great with a big group as a small one - she has so much information to share about the town and its environs. I've been wanting to do this tour for several years, and am so glad I... More

My husband and I decided to take this tour as we are frequent visitors to the Monterey Peninsula and have always been curious about Carmel. This tour was perfect for us. The tour guide, Gael, gave a most informative talk on Carmel past and present. On our walk we visited several galleries (including art, sculpture and photography), some unusual hotels,... More
