South Florida Food Tours serve enough food that for most participants, a meal afterwards is not necessary. With the combination of drink and food tastings, most participants are comfortably full after our food tours. Please understand our food tours are not intended to replace multiple meals.
Tours generally last approximately 2 1/2 hours. You can expect to walk less than a mile on most tours. We walk at a comfortable pace and sit to each at each tasting location.
Most tours are wheelchair and stroller accessible. The Lauderdale by the Sea tours tend to be the easiest / shortest walks so may be preferable. Please contact us with specific questions about accessibility.
Yes! Gratuities are standard for Tour Guides and greatly appreciated. The standard gratuity in the service industry is 15%-20%.
For our Private Tours, a 20% Gratuity is recommended as these take more time, planning and coordinating than the daily tours. Also, these tours tend to be in addition to the daily tours.
The ending point of our tours are a short walk from the starting point. However, your guide will normally be going back to the starting point and is happy to direct you back either way.
The Food Tours are year-round. Click on our Tour Calendar to see the updated list of events.
