This tour received great reviews, so I booked it as part of our trip up the CA coast - it certainly deserved the great reviews! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the food we sampled and about food in general. He was very interesting and had much to tell us about local history. The food was varied and very good!... More

My husband and I took this walking tour with Yule as our guide. He was personable and knowledgeable about the area. He had us taste a variety of food, cheese and desserts which were all delicious. We never got overly full and were satiated at the end. We highly recommend this tour and look forward to booking another tour with... More

My girlfriend and I, beginner foodies, took this walking tour of San Luis Obispo led by our guide, Yule. We sampled specialty chocolates, olive oils and balsamic vinegars, butternut ravioli, artisanal cheese, and tapas. Yule entertained and informed about the history of the city, the foods, and his own fascinating journey to the U.S. We had a great time!

We are five couples who had planned a trip to the central coast for the weekend. I had contacted the owner, Laura, by email and asked her if she could put together a tour for our group, and the result was such a wonderful experience! She tailored the tour to fit our timing and what we were interested in. Our... More

We try to schedule a food tour in every city we visit - it's a good way to meet new people, learn about the city and kind of get the lay of the land. This was a little different as we were the only ones on the tour. Seriously though, lucky us! Yule is a fantastic guide! He's knowledgeable, entertaining... More

Our first stop was at Mama Ganache Artisan Chocolates where we met our guide, Yule as well as the others in our tour group. I am forever spoiled for chocolate now. Next we visited Jaffa Mediterranean Cafe for some delightful falafel, hummus and gyros. We Olive, the following destination, was an amazing experience. They have many different types of olive...

I was looking for something different to do that would be fun for both me and my 15 year old son. Knowing that he loves chocolate and food this sounded like a great idea. I am glad we did it! Yule was very funny and kept the tour interesting. I liked the fact that this was not only about the... More

We had a wonderful afternoon (about 5 hours) with Yule on the San Luis Obispo tour. This was our 2nd tour with Central Coast Food Tours, as we had done the Paso Robles tour with Yule’s lovely wife Laura. I highly recommend either (or both). Our party of 6 adults (ages 28-60) enjoyed delicious food & beverage at a variety... More
