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 are total food and wine fans, so my sister thought this tour would be the perfect Christmas gift for us. She was absolutely right! I couldn't have designed a better experience. The tour is constructed around a "luncheon" concept, where each stop provides a different course with wine pairings, and in between, you get a chance... More

The food and wine were amazing and they even accommodated my gluten free husband! I would definitely go again. Our favorite part was learning about... More

We visited restaurants like... Thomas Hill Organics, Estrella, Paso Robles Inn, Panolivo & let us not forget the Rabbit Hole; just to name a few. This part of the... More

My husband and I were not familiar with Paso Robles and made reservations for this tour as an introduction to the town. We met Laura, our tour guide, and another couple in downtown Paso Robles for a 3.5 hour walking tour that included history, local culture, food and beverage. We had an excellent time. Laura is very personable and went... More

For our 10th year anniversary, I surprised my husband with a sip and sail tour. Yule was our tour guide and Captain Mark sailed us around the ocean off Avila Beach. The food was fantastic and the knowledge that Captain Mark has about the area was so interesting that we found ourselves wishing we could stay out for 3 more... More

Laura was outstanding. There were 5 of us on the tour. She was very easy to talk to and was very knowledgeable about the history of Paso Robles. We are planning on booking a dinner tour.

From there we visited two winery tasting rooms in the city. Both were good and not crowded on a sunday afternoon. Then stopped at a... More

My girlfriend and I booked two tours with Yule and Laura, a private wine tasting day and the sailing, and we would happily book more. We really could not have asked for a better experience in Paso, the trips these two put together for us were one of a kind and really took this trip to another level. Laura was... More

The Sunday Brunch and Wine Tasting Walk was a wonderful tour and lasted about 4 hours. The Buffet at Paso Robles Inn did have a good selection of food. During and between tasting, we enjoyed the glimpse of Paso Robles heritage and culture.The wine retailers and specialty shops were uniquely selected. Combine these with a leisurely stroll and an opportunity... More
