When booking our sister trip to the Monterey area, we looked for a foodie tour with great reviews. We try to do one every where we go. Carmel Food Tours in Carmel was both highly ranked and in a place none of us had visited yet. We were met by Amber at 10:30 at the designated spot and headed out shortly after with 13 others. First stop had a pulled pork slider, along with house-made fries and a glass of locally made white wine. All terrific. Next stop was sausages (Polish or Italian) or a hot dog. Very, very good. Next stop, local honey shop - Carmel Honey Company. Great products and a neat story. We spent quite a bit here. Next stop tacos and margaritas. So yummy. Then a nut shop (Nut Hut). Debit cards took another hit. Bakery with a spectacular éclair was next, followed by a chocolate shop. By that time, I couldn’t take another bite. Amber was a lovely, fun host and we learned fun, local history while enjoying great noms. We’ve done these all over the world and this ranks as one of our favorites. Would definitely do again if in the area. Thanks, Amber, for a fun sister memory. We had a blast.

My husband and I chose this tour as part of our honeymoon and it did not disappoint! Our tour guide Brian was so knowledgeable, friendly and funny to boot! We loved all the stops along the way - especially the Carmel Honey Company. Definitely skip breakfast before - we were so full we ended up skipping dinner that night as well!

Had a lovely time with Amber and really enjoyed our tour with lots of delicious types of food and enjoyed them all! Special accommodations were made for various food aversions and tolerances. Also we ran late and Stacey was nice enough to coordinate our delay due to traffic! Many thanks to Stacy (who is the owner) and was willing to be disturbed!

We, as two couples, have been on numerous food tours in various cities in the US and abroad. The Carmel Food Tour was by far the best we have encountered. Our guide, Amber, was charming and knowledgeable sprinkling historic and current tidbits of information about Carmel throughout the tour. However, the best part was, of course, the food and drink. There were 7 locations we visited with first class food, wine, desert and chocolate and generous servings throughout. We were more that filled at the end. Highly recommended, with a fair price for what we received.
