Carmel Small-Group Food and Wine Walking Tour
From US$89.00
Eat and drink your way through Carmel, a beautiful small town just down the coast from Monterey. Walk with a guide and an intimate group as you enjoy the gourmet delights of this affluent California enclave. Learn about the town’s history and culinary culture while indulging on locally-sourced and internationally-inspired cuisine, wine and chocolate. Samples amount to a full lunch and all are included in the tour.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at the Sunset Cultural Center in downtown Carmel. From there, your small group will set out to explore the culinary culture of this former artist colony, learn its history and savor its delicious cuisine.

As you stroll down secret allies and through tidy town squares, you’ll visit restaurants, fashionable bars and gourmet food shops while learning about the ‘locavore’ movement. Possible stops might include Trio Carmel, Terry’s Lounge, Lula’s Chocolates, Anton & Michael, Casanova Restaurant and Affina Food & Wine. At each stop, you’ll sample house specialties from olive oil to risotto, cocktails to gnocchi, fine wine to locally-produced sweets.

After a leisurely walk of just over 1 mile, suitable for adults of virtually all fitness levels, your tour ends by early afternoon. The tastings should add up to an average lunch, leaving you satisfied as you go about the rest of your day.

Carmel is not the easiest place to get around by car so booking a walking tour was perfect. We went to 4 restaurants for taste of food with wine pairing and 3 boutique shops (honey, olive oil, & chocolate) All were prepared for us and...More
