Mig was an awesome host! So knowledgeable! I would do this again! Made the trip extra special! We had a taste of Mexican, Italian, fish and chips, olive oil tasting, and the best was saved for last, the chocolates! Great way to see Carmel and enjoy food samples from some of the top spots in town.

I must confess that I was not very excited about participating in a food tasting tour. However, Mig, our charming guide, quickly disarmed my apprehension and turned our afternoon into almost delightful and memorable experience. The food sampling was absolutely delicious and diverse. Mig was knowledgeable, kind and very fun. Our experience could not have been better.

What an interesting and enjoyable three hour tour! And I am sure that our tour guide, Mig, is the best. She has an adoreable outgoing personality that makes everyone feel welcome and an integral part of the group. Our children purchased this tour for my birthday when they learned we were going to Carmel and since we had never been... More

This is an excellent way to be introduced to Carmel-by-the-sea. If you're a local you'll learn something new about Carmel and if you've never been here you'll fall in love with the beauty and uniqueness of this seaside town. The tour guides are not only familiar with the rich history of this area but also have a passion for it... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with this tour. Our guide Tracy was the perfect mix of friendly and knowledgeable without being overbearing. We enjoyed the small group size. We were truly impressed with the amount and quality of the food and drink and we definitely plan to revisit some of the stops in the future. We believe that... More

I am a local. We had several couples visiting us and I wanted to find something fun to do for the afteroon. The food tour was a great choice. Not only did a I learn a little history about my own area but we discovered some great places to eat that we will visit again.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the Classic Carmel-by-the-Sea Food Tour. Stacy is an excellent host and guide, very knowledgeable and engaging. There were two other guests this time, and she said she also escorts larger groups. She made a point at the beginning to ask about allergies and restrictions so she could accommodate us. As she guided our walk... More

Four of us foodies went on this Carmel Food Tour and loved all of it. We went to 7 different places and did wine tasting in most restaurants as well as sample a specialty dish there. We also hit a chocolatier and an olive oil/balsamic store. Our guide Amber was fabulous and a rock star. I would highly recommend this... More
