Q: What makes C&S different than the competition?
A: Our small group tour will have a maximum of 9 people. Where some popular tours will just drop you off in Carmel Valley without a guide to accompany you in the tasting rooms, we will be with you every step of the way. Our guides are not only fun and interesting, they are experts on the local wine scene and will provide further insights into the wines you will be tasting. The experience starts the moment you book a tour as you will immediately get an email with several questions that will help us shape your wine tour. Each tour is custom designed to the group to maximize your experience. Every tour is designed to provide an outstanding experience that is memorable and a highlight of your time in Monterey County.

It’s night and day from the competition.

Q. What is included in each tour?
A. Each tour includes transportation to the various locations, as well as wine tastings therein. It is all-inclusive. The main difference between Monterey County and other destinations is most wineries do not have tasting rooms on their vineyard grounds. This is especially true for the smaller, boutique gems which we focus on. Contact us directly if the vineyard and production aspect is of primary concern, and we will do our best. We also include a complimentary meat and cheese platter and bottled water, as well as bonus amenities like phone chargers and umbrellas (as needed). As time permits, your guide is also happy to show you around a few additional locations such as Carmel Beach or various restaurants.
Q. Where is the pickup location, and can it be changed?
A. The pickup location is in front of the old Wharf Marketplace building near Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey. This location was chosen due to ample public parking, as well as being central for most Monterey visitors. We do frequently pick up guests from other locations for a small fee, but it is on a case-by-case basis and should be worked out ahead of time. If the entire group is located elsewhere, we can of course be flexible. For private tours, hotel or home pickup is included without issue.
Q. I have some special needs, or am interested in a private tour.
A. Oh, one of those people… Joking aside, please contact us for availability and price. We actually delight in putting together private tour schedules for folks, and can make your couples’ getaway or family trip even more special. If anyone in your party has other special requirements, we are happy to discuss them via email or phone so that we can do our best to make things work.
Q. What are some boring details about your company?
A. Cane and Spur is a Veteran-owned (US Army) and operated company. We offer a full refund for any bookings cancelled 48 hours or more in advance of the tour, and 50% for those cancelled inside the 48 hour window. For private tours, if you must cancel please do so ASAP as we are scheduling a full day for your enjoyment. We are a fully insured and licensed Monterey/California business. TCP 0037059-S.
