What You Can Expect
You’ll make stops at restaurants, stylish watering holes and food shops to meet business owners and sample different food items. You may visit places like Casanova Restaurant, Trio Carmel, Anton & Michael, Terry’s Lounge at the Historic Cypress Inn, Lula’s Chocolates and La Bicyclette. Learn about the ‘locavore’ concept as you sample goodies such as gnocchi, olive oil, artisanal pizza, wine or cocktails, and locally made truffles and caramels. In general, the tastings add up to an average lunch.
Finish up in the early afternoon, which leaves you plenty of time to continue exploring Carmel on your own. Total walking distance is just more than 1 mile and includes several tasting breaks; it’s suitable for adults of all fitness levels.
This was a wonderful way to spend our afternoon on a Mother/Daughter weekend. The tour was full of fabulous food and wine. It was just the right amount of walking and the right amount of humor. Thank you to our fabulous tour guide, Stacy, for a memorable time.
Great three hour tour! Meg was very personable, knowledgable, and guided us to great food and wine! Even had a wonderful olive oil tasting! We went on this tour our last day in Carmel. I would recommend you plan this your first few days there so you get a better lay of the land and get to try several restaurants BEFORE you go for a full meal!
