We went on a wine tasting tour in the Carmel Valley. It was absolutely the best. We can't wait to plan another vacation with some friends and go on another tour. Evan is very knowledgeable and incredibly friendly. We didn't want the tour to end! We highly recommend this tour.

We had a half day private tour of the agriculture industry in the Salinas/Castroville farm lands. We learned lots about how fresh fruit and vegetables are raised and make their way from central California to us on the east coast. If you have an interest in where and how your food gets to you, this tour explains a lot. The... More

My wife and I took a private tour with Evan and it was fantastic. Great wine, good timing (not too much time in the van), beautiful sights, and great nature views. I even got time to stop at Pebble Beach pro shop and take pictures at tee box 1 and the 18th green. To top off the tour, we over... More

Evan is a very "nice guy" who talks a good game and if you have no prior knowledge of the area or the topic he will seem very informative. However, on our day with Evan, I found that he made up a lot of facts as we went along. While I am inclined to say "No harm, no foul" on... More

I'm surprised at the 4/8/2014 negative review. The rest of the guests on this tour enjoyed it. I only visit wineries that produce excellent wines and provide excellent service. I have no control over which wines are poured on a particular day. The winery makes this decision. Information provided on the tour is factual and taken seriously. I'll let my... More

My girlfriend and I visited the Monterey/Carmel area in February, and at the top of our list of things to do was to go wine tasting! After doing some research on local wine tasting tour companies, we decided to book with Evan/Ag Venture Tours...and we were so glad we did! Evan was extremely knowledgeable and professional...but above all, he is... More

Family trip to Monterey/Carmel to enjoy and learn more about wine. Our first day's vacation was an all day (10:30-4:30) tour of the Salinas Valley with Evan. Cannot say enough about how much we learned about agriculture in "America's Salad Bowl" as well as visits to three entirely different, but all wonderful, vineyards. Highly recommend an outing with Evan in... More

Evan is an awesome tour guide! He met us at our hotel in Monterey and gave us the local insight to the Monterey area in general and then took us on a very relaxed tour of a winery. We also visited 3 tasting rooms where Evan had obviously developed some great relationships with the owners. They all knew him by... More

My Husband and I really lucked out when we spontaneously booked the above ag tour with Evan in September 2013. We enjoyed it so very much, that I booked the same tour for some visiting, out of state relatives that were here in October 2013. Not only is Evan extremely knowledgeable about the local agriculture, he is very welcoming and... More

Evan met us at our hotel in Carmel By the Sea- it turned out to be just my husband & I on the tour, which was perfect because it was our 2nd wedding anniversary. We booked the 3 hour Carmel Valley Wine tour. He was fantastic from the very start, really friendly and you can tell he truly loves what... More
