The Monterey Food Tour was truly wonderful - relaxed but filled with information and LOTS of amazing food! Each stop was unique; our very helpful tour guide provided plenty of background before we arrived, so everyone knew about the venue's history and specialties. Perfect Monterey weather, too! We were especially pleased since the whole tour area was a part of Monterey we had never visited before - we will definitely be back again!

More info on history would be great. Guides seemed a bit uncertain about that. Also, introductions by everyone would be nice. Lots of good food… ice cream should be last course, even if it does mean backtracking.
