What to Expect

Explore Everything Carmel-by-the-Sea Has to Offer

The quaint village of Carmel-by-the-Sea has so much history and beautiful architecture to take in. Between each tasting, you’ll stroll through hidden passageways, explore less-crowded side streets, get our recommendations for meals and lodging, take in architectural jewels, and view gorgeous floral displays. You’ll also get to see the spots where history was made.

Tastings at 6-7 Locations

During your tour, you’ll enjoy 6-7 tastings that vary in size and cuisine. Our team has carefully selected bites with the help of each chef so you can get a feel for each location’s specialties. Our tastings include a well-balanced selection of flavors and by the end of your tour, you’ll be full but not too full.

You’ll Learn About More Than Just Food

Raise your hand if you’re a history buff! On our tours, you’ll not only learn about the food, but you’ll also learn more about the history of Carmel-by-the-Sea. You’ll also get an inside look at our quaint village’s architecture, art, and culture.

You’ll Get Some Exercise In

Experiencing Carmel-by-the-Sea by foot is the best way to explore! Over three hours, we’ll walk the streets of the village, stop for bites, and explore all of the nooks and crannies. Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes, don’t bring a bag that’s too heavy, and dress for the weather (we operate rain or shine!).
