Eat, Drink & Walk Your Way Through This Cool California European-Style Village
It’s the holiday season and you’re in gift-giving mode.
Except your friends/relatives have all the electronics and clothes they need, the stuff in the department stores all looks the same and you’re stuck for ideas. What you want it to give something different.
Well I’ve got the perfect gift idea for you, especially if you live in the Bay Area or Central or Northern California, or plan on visiting Carmel sometime in 2018.
It’s the Carmel Food Tours.
The Carmel Food Tours combines food, wine and a walking tour in the European-style village of Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA.
It’s a three-hour festival of tasty treats led by knowledgable Carmel locals who take you inside restaurants you would likely never spot on your own, through the hidden passageways that you would never (ever) find on your own, and provides you with an introduction and history of Carmel that you would never learn on your own.
The tours are in groups of a dozen people, or you can make special arrangements to bring your entire family. It makes a perfect gift because it’s interactive, you get to eat great food and drink Monterey County wines (plus, perhaps even a spicy margarita) and it sure beats giving someone an ugly sweater they will tuck in the drawer and never wear.
And while in Carmel, make a day or weekend of it. Get a room at the family-run Hofsas House hotel, do some wine tasting on the self-guided Carmel Wine Tour that’s a pass to many of the village’s wine tasting rooms, and enjoy a different kind of dinner at Artemis Turkish Kitchen.
