What to Expect

Enjoy a relaxed pace and the comfort of sitting down at nearly every stop of a restaurant-focused tour.

Private Group Tours allow the organizer to select tasting locations and start times most appropriate for their own group, or leave the planning to us.  We can create something as specific as seafood samplings and oyster education, or organize a progressive meal, or focus on hors d’oeuvres paired with cocktails.

Private tour guests can request specific start times* and tour duration depending on availability of tour guides and tasting locations.

*Special note: we are not able to provide dinner tours due to both the busy-ness of our vendor partners, and safety concerns of touring in the dark.  Carmel sidewalks are not generally lit, and moving large groups over uneven terrain with limited visibility is not an option for our tour leaders.

Tour guide(s) gratuity fee of 18% will be added to the total cost and provided directly to your tour guide(s).


Gimme-a-Breakfast Tour

Explore Carmel on foot as it wakes up with culture, food, and morning beverages. For private groups only - contact us to arrange dates.

Classic Food Tour

Three glorious hours of food, drink, history, camaraderie, and an insider's view of Carmel-by-the-Sea that you'll never forget

Back for Seconds - I HIGHLY recommend the Carmel Food tour to any one or any group in the area. It's so good, it may even be a destination tour!
