Sip a selection of handcrafted wines and indulge your sweet tooth with locally made caramels and truffles. You’ll find that these various tasty bites add up to a very satisfying lunch!
Your Carmel food tour ends in the early afternoon, leaving you plenty of time to revisit the restaurants and shops later to experience more culinary delights.
This is one tour that everyone should do. The places visited, the foods eaten and the wines tasted were A-1. Tracy was very knowledgeable interesting and lots of fun as a tour guide. Every aspect of this tour was top rate and like the 'cherry on top of the sundae' for our vacation. Thanks so much! Kay Lynn and Gary, FL
This was a very pleasant way to spend a few hours in Carmel. Our guide Debbie led us around to sample some very fine foods and beverages, thoughtfully providing a good substitute beverage for our underage daughter. She was also sensitive to special diets. One of the women on the tour was vegetarian, and that was accommodated. Several of the places we stopped were unique and interesting apart from the food, and she filled us in on their backgrounds.
