This tour is fantastic! Knowledgable tour guide, great food and drink, interesting history, wonderful restaurants and shops. I highly recommend it for people who know Carmel and those who are new to the city. We had a great time!
I booked the Small-Group Food and Wine Walking Tour in Carmel just as an "extra" on our coastline drive from San Diego to San Francisco. Am I glad I did! Our tour guide was excellent, she really new the town well and the establishments she includes on the tour were all places I would return too. Good choice.
