Join us for Old Monterey’s original culinary walking adventure! We’re proud to be Monterey’s first and only walking food tour, and we’d love for you to experience it with us! On this tour, we’ll take you through 5-6 different restaurants and food shops along the side streets of downtown Monterey. You’ll taste all the culture embedded here, from little bites, to coffee on draft, to Italian, Indian, and Greek food (just to name a few). We’ll also familiarize you with some local history, go over some of California’s firsts in Monterey, and fill you in on some things the locals hardly even know! You better come hungry when you join in on this tour, because you’ll quickly find there’s a lot more going on downtown than expected, so come on board and have the time of your life! We can’t give away all of the secrets, but here’s a couple of things you can expect: Eating food with a Big Little Lies connection. Tasting food as you check out California’s first safe. Enjoying beer and wine from local breweries and wineries. And more!
Casey & co hosts: Felipe, Greg, Lance & Nicole Welcome to Monterey Bay Food Tours! My name is Casey. I am a lover of great food, wine, and culture and am the proud owner and founder of Monterey Bay Food Tours. I was born and raised in Georgia, but dreamed of moving to California since high school. When my husband was given the opportunity to move to Monterey for work in the summer of 2016, we jumped at the opportunity. I’d first visited the area 7 years prior to moving and immediately fell in love with the food and cultural diversity the California Central Coast has to offer. I finally feel that I am fulfilling my dream of working for myself and doing what I love. We have always enjoyed cooking for and trying new foods with friends and family, but now I am excited to share this passion with you.
