What's included in a Miami Culinary Tour?
Miami Culinary Tours offers trips that take you on a Miami cultural tour guide around some must-visit locations, including Little Havana, South Beach, Wynwood, and more. These tours help you sample small portions of a few of Miami's most delectable cuisines while being accompanied by a local expert.
You get to taste some wonderful cuisines along the way and the Miami Beach Food Tour lasts roughly 2.5 hours, but you should treat it as an experience to be had rather than a brunch or lunch situation so count on a full meal. It is the equivalent of a 4-course meal but in a cuisine tour where you get to sample various unique and delicious food.
The small group walking tour is packed full of art and a scrumptious food experience!
On a culinary walking tour of 5-star eateries of Miami Beach, sample your way around the area with a local tour guide like Mirka. When you go in a small group—10 individuals or less—you'll experience a great setting and have lots of opportunities to enquire about the sights. A complete meal of samplings, including everything from home-style food to Cuban coffee, is available. When you tour Little Havana, South Beach, and Wynwood, you'll discover the history behind each food item you sample and meet local cooks and chefs.
Harris will also take you to the architectural marvels of South Beach's art deco section, something not to be missed. Additionally, you get to know about the Miami Beach lifestyle and go to several kitchens to sample multicourse meals that combine the neighborhood's many Mediterranean and Latin cuisines.
