Description: What Better Way to Discover Paso Robles' Warm Hospitality, Farm-Fresh Food...
What Better Way to Discover Paso Robles' Warm Hospitality, Farm-Fresh Food and Award-Winning Wines than by a Guided Walking Tour? A Central Coast Food Tour in Paso Robles will introduce you to this new culinary frontier where food, wine and history come together to create a most delicious experience. Did you know a Paso Robles wine won Wine Spectator's "Wine of the Year" in 2010, and the area was recently named the West Coast's "most exciting wine region" by Sunset Magazine? On your tour you'll enjoy a mix of food and wine tastings at six specially selected food and wine venues that best represent the array of agricultural, culinary and viticultural resources in the area. We'll help you get oriented to all that Paso (as we locals refer to the area) has to offer.

My husband and I took the Paso food tour with Laura today. We have a second home in Cambria but have been sorry we didn't know good restaurants in Paso. We were delighted with this tour which was structured like a progressive dinner, with each course totally adequate. We were so full at the end we skipped dinner. But even... More

I am so delighted with your kind review. With all your food tour experiences, I so value your feed-back. I knew I had a "tough customer" with very high standards at the start of our tour - I just hoped I, and the tour, might live up to your expectations. What a delight to learn you enjoyed the tour.

We only had a few days on the Central Coast and wanted to make the most of it. We had never done a food tour before so we were a little skeptical but decided to book this tour anyway. Zero regrets. Laura was our tour guide. She was patient and knowledgeable. A total of eight people showed up on the... More

OMG - I feel so very honored by your review and especially your words,"it didn't feel so much like a tour but a hang-out." I wish, wish, wish that all my guests felt as you did. Each tour is unique and really comes together by the presence of the people on the tour. YOU guys were awesome and obviously the... More

My sister and I began our 3 day weekend in Paso Robles wine country with Laura (owner) of Central Coast Food Tours. We embarked on what turned out to be an incredible 3-1/2 hour food and wine walking tour. Laura's historical knowledge of the local area combined with outstanding food and wine at Thomas Hill Organics, Paso Robles Inn, Estrella,... More

We LOVED this tour! We were celebrating my spouse's 70th birthday and were looking for a food and wine pairing meal. This was it and more. It was a progressive luncheon with delicious food and wine with walking (not too much) and fascinating historical stories in between. Our guide Laura was quite personable and knowledgeable. A very enjoyable way to... More

This experience FAR surpassed my expectations (and, my expectations were pretty high - I am a wine lover and chose this for my 40th birthday). Laura is nothing short of amazing. Her knowledge, personality, relationship with the wineries, not to mention, the exquisite catered food that was presented to us throughout the day. I will be a repeat customer FOR... More
