Our Colorado Vistage group just enjoyed our second helping of the Carmel Food Tour. Three years ago, we met Staci during our annual retreat. In the years since, the group often talked about how much fun we had and about going back again. So last month, we had another retreat in Carmel. We had a few new members, so decided... More

Well planned and thought out food tour of exceptional restaurants, chefs and hidden gems in Carmel. This was such a great experience, the foods served were excellent, the wine choices were well paired, the chefs discussed their serving choice, their personal history as well as the restaurant history. The wine sommeliers presented the local wines served with great knowledge. Time... More

When we discovered the lunch food tour was sold out, we opted for the breakfast tour instead. We were greatly warmly by our host at the designated spot — the courtyard of the picturesque Church of the Wayfarer. Our group consisted only three others. After the introductions and the preliminaries we began our leisurely stroll through the streets of beautiful... More

We live here but still learned a lot about our community on this tour. It is a great way to see your own town and enjoy good food and wine. Mig made the experience a total package. She was upbeat, enthusiastic, and very knowledgeable. She made sure everyone in the group was having a good time and being taken care... More

This was one of our favorite excursions for our tenth anniversary getaway. It was the perfect way to become acquainted with the hidden gems of Carmel. It also helped guide us in planning the rest of our time in town. Stacy was such a wonderful tour guide and she made it so enjoyable while having to work on her birthday.... More

I've been on a few food tours, and this one with Stacie rates right up there as one of the best and one of my favorites. She is warm and welcoming, funny, knowledgeable about the city and food. Although, it seems like you're just sharing a great day with friends, it is a very professionally fun event. All of the... More

Charlie and I (Kelly) had a lovey time on the Carmel food and wine tour. We have been to Carmel many times on vacation and this was the first time we chose a guided tour. I am not one to book tours, as I prefer to wander around new cities on my own accord. I did however love this experience... More

We loved the Carmel Food Tour. What a great way to spend 3 hours in beautiful Carmel, CA! We have been on several food tours throughout the United States and this one, by far, had the most generous portions at the tastings...and the food was fabulous! Most places supplied a glass of wine, too, which was an added bonus. You... More
