I honestly cannot wait to go on another food tour on our next trip. The South Beach Culinary Tour was by far the highlight of Miami and one of the highlights of our honeymoon. We chose the dinner tour which included ceviche, refajo, plantains and empanadas, a mojito, beans, rice and beef, sweet bites and gelato in a walking tour around South Beach. We chose to go on the second day of our trip, but really wished we'd done it the first night because we wanted to go back to so many of the restaurants for an actual meal. In addition, my appreciation for the history, architecture, and people of South Beach was increased exponentially with the knowledge of the history behind so many of the quirks. The "small" plates were more than satisfying and walking around town and hearing the history was a wonderful way to avoid the overstuffed feeling of eating a large meal. We drank a significant amount but never felt more than pleasantly buzzed between the walking and eating.
The girl in the photo was our guide. She was enthusiastic, outgoing and had a little tidbit to add to any moment of waiting for a red light to change or for her tour to stop moaning over the food. She is very knowledgeable about the city and seems to really love sharing her knowledge with the people she exposes to the wonderful world of Miami's South Beach.
We ended up going back to two of the restaurants after the tour. I will drink refajo any time it is offered to me for the rest of my life, and I've been commission to learn to make the Colomian version of empanadas by my new husband (he ate SIX of them on our second visit to Bolivar, the restaurant that served them to us initially).
We loved this tour so much that we actually looked up whether a similar one is available in our hometown just to enjoy a night out. I will make it a point to book culinary tours in every city we travel to in the future.
