Full description
Enjoy a food tour of Miami and embark on a culinary adventure through Miami Beach combining delicious food and drink tastings with historical, architectural, and cultural insights. Begin by looking at the architectural wonders. The Art Deco stylings inspired a generation of designers, including Versace, who owned a mansion here until his untimely death. Others who have shaped the area's history include Al Capone, Don Johnson, and the one and only Gloria Estefan. Each has brought a unique twist to the South Beach style and left a mark that has changed the culture forever. Listen to your guide who will explain the history behind the city, stopping off for some drinks and food along Ocean Drive and Espanola Way. Check out the hottest Cuban, artisanal Peruvian, Italian, and Jewish comfort foods. Each tasting is an homage to the cultural diversity of this city. Once you finish your tour, you will feel like a local with an insider's view into the local life, a satisfied stomach, and confidence to continue exploring the other neighborhoods of Miami.

    We really enjoyed this tour, and our guide Gina was very good and enjoyable to be with for the 2-3 hour tour. It's a walking tour, but it's very easy walking, punctuated by frequent stops and opportunities to sit down. The tour was a good chance for us to see South Beach, as we were first timers to the area. So we enjoyed the historic architecture and the beachy ambience. Of course this is a culinary tour, so food and drink are involved. And to that point, our initial meeting place was a restaurant where we all introduced ourselves (around 12-15 people on our tour as I recall), and enjoyed a popular drink from Colombia (a most interesting combo of beer and orange cream soda - quite better than what you might think), as well as a Colombian inspired empanada, and the most amazing ceviche we've ever had, which was said to be a Peruvian preparation. We made three more stops for food, and keep in mind these are all what you would think of as apps or small plates, and a gelato dessert stop.

    Was great ! Our leader Sandy also gave us information about the history of Miami Beach. We came to restaurants that we would not necessarily have visited ourselves and were served delicious dishes that we would not have recognized as such on the menu. We were also asked at the beginning of the tour whether there were any restrictions (vegan, alcohol, etc.).

    Fit for Foodies!

    Excellent sampling of restaurants and history of the community all wrapped up in one tidy package. We started at Bolivar's for drinks, enjoyed a wonderful pork dish at Lario's, had fun cocktails and pork belly that was TO DIE FOR at a Hawaiian themed restaurant (sorry, i forget the name!) experienced bubble tea and finished with the best gelato outside of Italy. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the hotels, the history and imparted her knowledge with flair. We met a lot of fun people and just had a great 3 hours walking at an easy pace and eating a LOT of food. This tour is an excellent value, book now and get ready to have some fun!
