I really enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Lisa, was excellent. She was very knowledgeable about food and restaurants as well as history and architecture in South Beach. The tour was perfectly paced-- walking and viewing architecture with stops well-timed for food sampling. I thought the food selections were excellent. Guiding a group without droning on too long or saying too little while keeping everyone together, safe, and moving is a real art Lisa has it down pat. I would not hesitate to do this tour again and will definitely recommend it to my friends.

I attended this tour a few weeks ago with Jen. She was incredibly personable and knowledgable. We ate a variety of foods from 5 different restaurants. All the food we sampled was delicious. Jen was even so kind as to recommend some restaurants in Little Havana-we thoroughly enjoyed ALL the recommendations she made. I would highky recommend this tour if you are interested in getting to know the area and get some great food!
