“Courtyards of Carmel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2011

We have been to Carmel on many occasions but never got to see the secret places or hear the stories about old Carmel. Gail was great and introduced us to a Carmel we have not seen and without her knowledge would never have seen. She had tales of people that have lived there that were soooo interesting. We loved it and well worth the time and money. She also recommended Andre Brouchee's for lunch. We all ended up there after the tour and non of us were disappointed.

“Great way to get a behind the scenes view of Carmel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2011

Definitely worth two hours of your time and $25 of your money to get a local artist's perspective of this beautiful village by the sea. Wear comfortable shoes: no heels allowed in Carmel anyway. Hear stories about the famous visitors and residents. It's a great way to start your visit to the area.

“Carmel Walking Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2011

Gail was an awesome tour guide. She was able to connect to the diverse group and was most enjoyable. Grab a coffee and meet at the Pine Hotel at 10:00. (Reservations by phone suggested). Enjoy a 2 hour tour through this inspirational town. Make note of what you will want to re-explore on your own. This is a great way to get started in this wonderful town. Amen Carmel. We will be back!

“Absolutely a must-do in Carmel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

We did this neat walking tour on our very first trip to Carmel, and it was a perfect introduction and overview of the very quaint town. We are not typically tour people, but loved this tour and would absolutely recommend it to everyone. Gale offers many suggestions and takes questions. She seems very well connected in the town, and walks you through places you would likely not discover on your own.

“A Must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2011

Based on the prior reviews on TA, went on the walking tour on the first morning of our visit. It was spectacular. Gail was a wonderful guide with a unique perceptive of the town. Gave wonderful tips on where-to-go and where-to-eat. Very knowledgable of the history of the town and it's former and previous residents. I agree with all the previous reviews. Do not miss this walking tour.
