Food Review: Miami Culinary Tours – Wynwood Edition

I am a firm believer that the best way to learn about a culture is through it’s food. And Miami Culinary Tours helps achieve that. Flawlessly.

Miami Culianry Tours

The 411

Everyone who knows anything about Miami knows that it is a melting pot for different Latin cultures. And what happens when there are so many different people in one place?

The food scene gets interesting.

In a city where the neighborhood most outsiders think of is Miami Beach, Miami Culinary Tours does a great job at introducing them to all the different shades, sights, and smells that encompass Miami (so basically the Miami that locals see).

So, what neighborhoods will you find the good folks at Miami Culinary Tours in? You can find them strolling around in Wynwood, Little Havana, and Miami Beach.

Each tour conducts five stops and gives locals (and tourists) the chance to taste carefully crafted bites by some of Miami’s most innovative chefs. Each tour can run for about two to three hours (so wear comfy shoes).

Their tours run daily and will happen regardless of the weather (so bring an umbrella). Pricing for the tours can run foodies (or non-foodies — they don’t discriminate) between $59 to $69 per person.

There are six very knowledgeable guides who will share fun tidbits about the food, culture, and the things that make each neighborhood special.

Miami Culinary Tours also hosts private tours (for birthdays, anniversaries, or just because) and offers Foodie Gift Certificates.

Final Thoughts

I loved it and would do it again in a New York second. Grace Della (the owner) knows what she is doing and provides people with a unique experience every time. If you want to get to know the Miami food scene, this is the tour for you.

Happy Eats,
