Very educational and we learned a lot about Carmel and walked through its nooks and crannies. We were also lucky enough to meet a few artists as well.

I've been wanting to take part of the Carmel Walks for years, glad I finally did this! Gael Gallagher was such a knowledgeable and amazingly informed guide, learned so much I never knew about Carmel, though I've been going there for over 30 years.

Kelly introduced us to the charms and stories of Carmel-by-the-sea. We were privileged to be a group of two on an intimate tour of Carmel. Excellent!

She catered the tour to the needs of the three families in tow -- a young couple with a pregnant wife, a young couple with... More

We enjoyed our walk around Carmel especially because we didn't take the touristy roads. Our guide took us through all the secret hideaways in Carmel and showed us the history and art about the place. It was wonderful!
