Touring the Carmel Mission offers tours of the property which include the courtyards, Basilica, Indian Cemetery and Museums. We have a dedicated group of volunteers who have been trained to make not only of the Mission itself, but of the early years of California come to life. Because the history of California springs from the establishment of the Missions it is important to relate the two to paint the entire picture. Our Mission docents offer this blending to our visitors in accordance with the guidelines below:
