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

We did the "Zip and Sip" adventure. Laura was super accommodating to our group in making our reservations. She made sure that everyone's needs were met. The adventure was terrific! Absolutely no complaints.

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
