    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at the Historic Custom House and embark upon your epicurean exploration of Monterey.  Step back in time at our first stop as small bites are enjoyed in a historic setting.  Venture to Alvarado Street and the hidden gems of downtown Monterey's back streets where locals dine.  Enjoy dishes from traditional Indian or Greek cuisine to local cider and pasta in a gastropub to deep dish pizza.  Next, visit an artisan ice cream shop, sample handcrafted Ice cream while visiting the kitchen.  Continue past many historic buildings in Monterey including a couple of California's firsts.  Finally, sip local wine and savor delicious local cheese while you browse the art of 30 local artists.  Bid your guide and group farewell but feel free to remain in the gallery after the tour concludes.

    We had a wonderful day with hostess Casey. The bits of history were great along with wonderful food and drink. Loved the ice cream and I am not an ice cream fan. Highly recommend this tour.
