Yule is quirky and fun. He was very knowledgeable about the local area and cuisine. All the food that we ate was delicious! We told him we were thinking about vising Hearst Castle and he recommended that we eat at Sebastian's Store which is located across the street... That place was delicious as well! Thanks for a great and memorable... More

Our guide was Yule (whose life story is fascinating by the way). He was enthusiastic, entertaining and very knowledgeable. I learned so much about what we were eating, the history of how the area came to be, and much much more. The information was also presented in a "story like" format which most fun way to learn history. Yule's love... More

After reading some GREAT reviews on TripAdvisor and Yelp, we knew Laura, Yule and Mary Ann were the way to go! My youngest sister was turning 21, so we wanted to put together a great day of wine tasting, and the team of Central Coast Food Tours did just that! We explained our wine preferences (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir), and... More

We had such a great time on this tour. Yule was so interesting. I could have listened to him talk about just his own life for entirety of the tour, but the history of San Luis Obispo was very interesting. I really enjoyed the fact that he spoke about the history during the 19th century but I was mesmerized by... More

We took our friends who were visiting us on the downtown SLO Tour. The food was wonderful but our tour guide, Yule, made it memorable. He is extremely knowledgeable about food and history and almost anything else you can think of. He's led such an interesting life that we could have listened to him for hours. This tour is well-worth... More

We were looking for an escape to the wine country and contacted Central Coast, to see what they could do. After asking our preferences in wine and food, Laura arranged a fabulous day for us with Yul who was a delight! He picked us up at our hotel and drove us through the area in comfort in his very clean... More

It was a fun tour exploring different places in SLO. We had some great food and wine. Yul is very knowledgable and funny. He has been very patient with the group, never rushed us, and very courteous. Definitely will try for Paso Robles one when we are back!
