We have been coming to Carmel for a while now and I wish we gad taken the time for this tour the first time we visited. Amazing food and a great knowledge of Carmel. Takes you to places you would not normally find on your own. I recommend anybody visiting Carmel take this tour.

“Rave review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

I was one of seven friends from high school....60 years ago....who met and stayed in Asilomar for three days. The highlight of our get together was definitely this wonderful restaurant tour. Our lovely guide was knowledgeable and gracious and each restaurant we visited was a unique and different experience. After the tour we returned to several of those restaurants to buy some goodies we just couldn't live without!! I heartily recommend this 3 hour experience to everyone and I will be back with my husband to do it again. Judie C

“great way to spend an afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We had a really good experience on this tour. We only had a couple of days in the Carmel/Monterey area and this was a great way to get an overview of Carmel. We wished we had more time after the tour to go back to some of the great places we visited. Carmel is a unique, beautiful little town and Stacy really knew her stuff. We learned things we never would have otherwise and it really made us appreciate the area. The tour stops included cheeses, gnocchi in cream sauce (our favorite), specialty olive oils/vinegars (with gelato--a surprisingly good combo), gourmet pizza, sangria, tapas, a wine sampling in an art gallery, and chocolates. There was nothing we tasted that we didn't like, and it was enough to fill us up for lunch. We also requested vegetarian and it was no issue at all (you can make food requests ahead of time when you book if necessary). Wear comfortable shoes--it is a walking tour, but nothing strenuous and took a little over 3 hours total. Highly recommended!

Great overview of Carmel restaurant scene. We went back to 3 of the restaurants we toured. Really enjoyed this walk-about.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

My boyfriend and I had a great time on this tour. It was a really special experience that allowed us to experience Carmel differently and explore awesome restaurants and stores that we wouldn't have found otherwise. Staci was extremely knowledgeable, interesting, and funny! She really took the extra mile to ensure all of us were happy, and specifically my boyfriend whose birthday we were celebrating, and she was very successful at that. Her personal touch was really unique.

I Strongly recommend this tour if you are in Carmel and interested in three hours of great (tasty) fun!
