    What To Expect

    Your foodie adventure begins in South Beach. Choose an afternoon or evening and meet your guide for a tour of the area’s culinary hotspots favored by locals. Set off through the colorful, iconic Miami Beach neighborhood, bedecked in Art Deco accents and architecture. En route to your first stop, hear about some of the most beloved properties and the city’s efforts to preserve the colors and motifs that have become emblematic of South Beach.

    Your excursion includes hearty food tastings—and a fair amount of walking to burn it off. As you sample myriad flavors from Columbia, Cuba, Argentina, Peru, and beyond, you quickly understand how South Beach earned its acclaim as a vibrant food locale.

    Between stops, your guide passes highly acclaimed restaurants and talented kitchens. Get insider tips on which eateries to visit and which to avoid—and if you have other questions, just ask.

    Your evening tour ends just in time to grab a nightcap or enjoy the famous Miami Beach nightlife.

    Please note that tastings and stops are subject to change without notice.

    My husband, eight year old daughter, and I scheduled this tour in order to try a variety of foods while we were visiting on spring break. The deal with our daughter was she had to try everything but didn’t have to like or eat everything. She followed through and fell in love with the food at Havana 1957 (which was on my must try lists anyway so that was a win for me!). Our tour guide Dany was wonderful. He kept us all engaged and was extremely knowledgeable. This tour really made our trip and really really made me love Cuban coffee. I just need to remember how he said it’s made and I am set!

    Dany, our guide, was fabulous. Knowledgeable, personable, funny and just the perfect host!! We would totally recommend him and the tour to our friends.
    Tasty food, enchanting tour guide and lots of info
    Kathleen_T, Apr 2024
    Robyn was our guide and oh, what a treat to be educated by her about the culture and origins and food and everything about South Beach! She is beyond dynamic. We could have stayed with her ALL day! The time spent with her flew by and we were enraptured by her energy, warmth, knowledge and charisma. So, so much fun and her love for Miami Beach was always apparent. We give her 6 stars out of 5 OR 11 stars out of 10!
    Dany was a fantastic tour...

    Dany was a fantastic tour guide. We enjoyed every stop along the way. We highly recommend him and this tour.
    Great tour, guide, food, and fun!!
    Ryan_P, Apr 2024
    Dany was an excellent tour guide. Spent the time to connect with everyone in the group, very personable, remembered different things people told him about themselves along the way, and genuinely showed care for ensuring everyone had a great time on the tour. The food and locations were great and it was a nicely paced journey. Dany ensured it was paced well enough for everyone (including our two younger kids) to keep up with the group and not feel rushed. He made sure we had time to “stop and smell the roses” as he explained all about the area, culture, and food. My wife and I ended up booking this tour last minute and we are so glad we did!
    Wonderful Experience!

    rachaelwilkinson, Mar 2024
    Dany was fabulous, so enthusiastic and knowledgeable and took us to some great places and shared stories with us. Well paced, neither too fast or too slow. Group of 14 was a great size. Everyone along the way locally knew Dany, he’s obviously a legend. Highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
    Dany, great guide!
    lupita2610, Mar 2024
    Dany did a great job guiding our group through the unique restaurants at South Beach. Don’t get fooled by the size of the portions; they were small, but we were completely full by the end of the tour. We enjoyed: empanadas, ceviche, tacos, tequila, cuban coffee and churros. He provided a lot of information about the food we were enjoying as well ad the art deco history of the area. He was energetic and fun to be around. Would definitely recommend him.
