This was our second attempt to take this tour. We were here earlier in the summer and booked at the last minute. No one checked the messages so we waited and waited for the tour guide to show up but no one ever did and we wasted our only afternoon in San Luis Obispo. Laura was kind enough to open... More

We had a great time on our tour. Yule was an awesome guide and very knowledgeable of all the downtown and surrounding areas attractions. The food was delicious. I highly recommend this.

Our wonderful tour of San Luis Obispo began with meeting our guide, Yule, at Mama Ganache Artisan Chocolates near downtown. Both Yule and the proprietor provided us with great information on the best places in the world to find the cacao bean, as well as a sampling of some marvelous ethnic chocolates. Along with an introduction to SLO history, Yule... More

After looking into several wine tours in the area I picked Central Coast because they paid the tasting fees and you didn't have to join a 'wine club' to visit any of the wineries! And what a great decision it was! Yule is THE BEST! We started with lunch and a bit of a history lesson of the area, headed... More

Girls weekend, we took the food and wine tour with Yule. He was attentive and very passionate about his subject(s). We started with lunch as a good base, then visited 2 wineries for tasting, one olive oil plantation (which was a huge hit with the group), enjoyed cheese & fruit tray in between our tasting and wrapped up with a...

I went on on the Paso Robles food tour five years ago with Yule's wife Laura and she saved our weekend. Not only did she give us a phenomenal tour, she helped us find a hotel room. We still eat at the sites she showed us years ago. This August my girlfriend and I met Yule and did the tour... More

My friends and I had the best time on our food tour with Yule. He is truly gifted in so many areas, it's hard to know where to start. You will not just get the low-down on food, but be prepared to learn about history, architecture, art, science, health, etc. Don't eat ANYTHING prior to the tour because you don't... More

We met Yule at Giuseppe restaurant in downtown SLO were he gave us very interesting history of the town. We enjoyed great pasta and drink and moved on to some local wineries in Edna valley. He was not only full of great history but also helped educate us on the wine and vineyards. The cheeses that he had also stopped... More
