Highlight of our trip to Monterey

We met our tour guide, Lance, at the appointed time. We visit the Monterey area often but have never seen or been to any of the places we went to. His knowledge of the history of the area and the places we visited to taste and sip were amazing. We had never been to any of these establishments and would look forward to visiting them again on our next visit. The restaurant, breweries and wineries staff were very welcoming and were prepared for our group. We were treated to the most delicious Bee's Knees ice cream sundae at Revival along with a tour of their kitchen. This was an amazing trip and we would highly recommend it.

My husband and I enjoyed trying something new during our recent trip to Monterey. The tour was an interesting mix of history and food. We enjoyed all of the food and drinks along the tour. The best part was being introduced to a whole different side of Monterey than we've experienced before.

Excellent History and Food

What an excellent experience. The tour started with a light tasting at the Joseph Boston Store, including a tapenade that my wife ended up purchasing. Then a very informative and historic walk around the area. This was followed by three main and varied food stops--Indian, Greek, and a Gastropub. Delicious food and a generous amount (you won't need dinner after this tour). My favorite stop was Revival Ice Cream, not only because of the delicious Bees Knees sundae, but for their story of sustainability and community outreach. If you're in the area, I highly recommend this tour.

This was a great experience! We went to 6 different places to taste food and drinks, learn about the restaurants along the way as well as some local history. This is a fun few hours to learn something new and taste some great local fare. Great for friends or couples.

You will not go away hungry

Overall a very good experience visiting six different tastings, including three sit-downs, while along the way to each location you learn a little about Monterey's history. The only drawback (& now we know) is that depending on how many people sign up for your particular tour time and what their tastes are (e.g. no seafood), you may not get to try something you may have been looking forward to eat being in Monterey. However, you do go to places you might not normally try and opens you up to something different. We enjoyed our time. Thank you!

We are so glad that you enjoyed the tour! I’m sorry that we didn’t have seafood on the day that you took the tour. We only have one tour partner that usually serves seafood on our Old Monterey Tour and they weren’t on the route that day. We are working on building a new tour that has a seafood focus so I hope you can join us for that one once we start! Stay tuned.
