Would prefer more walk, less talk. We were anticipating getting around to many of the cottages and exploring more courtyards. Walk didn't actually cover much ground, although there were points of interest we wouldn't have found on her own, and the guide presented interesting highlights.

What a charming walking tour of Carmel. Truly wonderful! I would recommend to anyone coming to Carmel. So fun to see all the secret courtyards and hear about Carmel from a local. Would definitely do again!

It is a Bohemian styled small town with several blocks of buildings. There are art gallery, Jewelry shop, restaurant, bakery and etc. Visitors may hang around and enjoy the tranquility.

Making arrangements with Gael and her Carmel Walks was definitely the shrewdest part of our trip planning. For our first time in Carmel--for five days--after our tour with Gael we almost felt like we lived there. There are probably people who do live there that...More
