Narrated, self-guided tours cover some of the same topics as our live tours and are a great way to tour the town at your convenience. The “Taste of Mendocino” is a free tour that gives you a broad overview of Mendocino’s history in four stops, along with recommended food to try along your route. Additional in-depth tours are available for $9.99. On every self-guided tour, stops are accompanied by historic photos, a map to orient you, and the option to have the tour read aloud to you while you walk or drive. Simply search for “Kelley House Tour” in the App store and download onto your phone or tablet.
