It's not only the food you'll enjoy when taking the tour. Yule, the guide for our recent outing, was as interesting as he was fun. He has expertise in both the history of the area and the food served on the tour. Don't hesitate to book this tour - it's well worth your money and time.

We spent the afternoon touring San Luis Obispo with Yule. He was a delightful tour guide and food expert. He knew very interesting history of the area. He also related the connections to Spain and Mexico. We would highly recommend Yule and Central Coast Food Tours.

We make it a point to book a food tour when we travel so we can get our bearings in a city. Even though we have vacationed on the Central Coast multiple times, we hadn't really explored SLO. This tour gave us that opportunity. Thank you, Yule, for the great stories and the chance to try some restaurants we might... More

We had a delicious and informative afternoon with Yule. He knows food, wine, history and SLO well. There was bountiful food so no need to eat lunch or dinner. We look forward to our next visit for a wine tour with Yule.

My daughter treated me to the SLO food tour -- what a TREAT! Our guide, Yule, was well-prepared and delightful to chat with. It seemed EVERYone in San Luis Obispo knew him -- even passersby -- and he enchanted us with his knowledge of that beautiful little city. The merchants he arranged for us to visit and sample their goodies... More

My mom and I did the SLO walking tour with Yule and we had a wonderful time! We learned about (and tasted!) delicious chocolates, Italian food, cheeses, BBQ, and dessert. Yule went out of his way to customize the tour to our interests and my vegetarianism. It was a wonderful way to see SLO up-close and try a bunch of... More
