Great Foodie Tours Across the USA

Posted May 2, 2016 | By Staci Giovino

Classic Carmel Food Tour, Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA

Carmel-By-The-Sea is a charming seaside village that offers the best of the Central California coast. Exploring that charm— the food, the architecture, and the ocean views — with Carmel Food Tours’ Staci Giovino is unforgettable. Staci loves her adopted town and hearing about the fun history, celebrities who frequent the area, and little quirks of this seaside town is part of the allure of this tour.

The Carmel Food Tour Classic Food Tour lasts about three hours and Staci walks you through little pathways, down hillsides, past historic cottages, and into a selection of locally owned restaurants, wineries, and even a chocolate shop. The entire 3-hour tour covers about 1.3 miles.

For $79, you get more food than you can eat, a wine tasting, and a better look at Carmel than most visitors ever see. My favorite bites on this one were little gnocchi in an amazing cheese sauce, the sparkling rosé from Caracciola [sic] Cellars, and the chocolates from Lula’s Chocolates.
