It was a super experience! Amber did a great job as our tour guide, providing interesting information about Carmel along the walks, as well as helping our hosts at the different restaurants present their dishes. Nice variety of tastings, from creamy polenta topped with Kobe short rib meat, to soft tacos of chorizo and chicken with a side of crickets for the daring, to a tomato bisque, all with perfect beverage pairings. Dessert was a light and luscious tiramisu, followed by fascinating tastings of olive oil and balsamics, and of raw local honeys, and some unique ways to use them. Finished with delicious chocolates, feeling comfortably satisfied. Be sure to wear comfortable, supportive shoes because the streets, sidewalks and little pathways are all made from different materials e.g., some brick, some stone, some cracked cement and pretty bumpy.
The walking tour was great - there were 6 stops and everybody was so gracious at every stop. The food tastings were the perfect size - not too small or large. I liked that the tour leader gave us the option of imbibing in the alcohol or not - we did and the variety was excellent! I especially enjoyed the novelty of the olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting. The tour leader Amber was very knowledgeable and very friendly!
Mig was a wonderful guide. Fun and knowledgeable. Great way to taste/drink your way through the sites of Carmel. Arrive hungry and thirsty.
We've been to Carmel multiple times and this time we decided to do a food tour. Best decision we could have made as we've learned so much about Carmel and was introduced to some great shops and great restaurants.
Fantastic tour with Amber. Highly recommend. You don't go away hungry that's for sure. You also learn a little history of Carmel by the Sea.
Great food and drinks at some of Carmel's finest restaurants! We will do it again when we return! Small group ... wonderful guide ...

I have been coming to Carmel at least once a year since the early 80s and this is one of the best activities I have ever done. I learned so much in three hours about the architecture, culture, history, wine, and especially the food of such a wonderful destination. I cannot say enough great things about this tour and why it would be fun for both locals as well as tourists. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and so interesting that it made the time fly. I also discovered several new places to eat that I will be trying on my next visit. This tour is a must and I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.
This was an excellent tour. We found 2 new restaurants we want to return to for a full meal. In addition to some great stops, the guide, Stacy, also filled us in on occasional historical tidbits. Fortunately, the weather cooperated and the rain held off until evening, but even if it had rained, it would have been a thoroughly delightful experience. Recommended for anybody who wants to try some good food and wine and doesn't mind walking a bit. The walking actually helps wear off the calories from the generous samples and the stops give you a break from the walking.
Best time while in California! The food and wine choices were fantastic, the restaurants were exceptional! The chefs, wine sommeliers were gracious and spent time with us. Mig our tour guide made this experience 10 stars! I shared this tour with 3 of my high school girl friends, two of which are from the area, everyone had a wonderful time. I am a certified KCBS BBQ food tasting judge, the food was exceptional, well paired with the wines served, the serving sizes were perfect. This tour rivaled the walking food tour I did while in Paris, France. Do not miss this one, I did not want it to end! Worth every dime, well done Carmel!
We had a fabulous three hour tour. Amber Gilles was our tour leader and she was knowledgeable and fun. We had wonderful food samplings, wine samplings, olive oil samplings at various establishments and what better ending than local chocolates. We highly recommend Carmel Food Tours. A great concept and tour. Thank you!!
We were on an August tour with Mig who was just excellent. I really felt she knew Carmel and made us feel like insiders as well. The food offerings were excellent, the chocolate frM Lulus got rave reviews, I almost didn't give it away!
Great tour. Stacey the guide was friendly and funny. Lots of food and local wines. Recommend doing this tour as soon as you arrive in Carmel as it provides great ideas for eating out.
This tour was great. Our tour guide Mig was fantastic. Really enjoyed everything about it. We really felt bad because we totally forgot to tip Mig for the great job she did. Sorry Mig.
Our group of seven was just the right size for our personalized tour. The food was great and the hosts were knowledgeable most friendly. Our guide knew all the answers to our questions about the town and the stops we made. It was a truly enjoyable event.
The tour was wonderful! This was our first time in Carmel and we really enjoyed getting to hear and see the history of this beautiful place. I would highly recommend it to everyone! We loved the food, the atmosphere, and the people. Our tour guide Staci was excellent!
