Remember way earlier this year when I ate my way through South Beach? That was all thanks to Miami Culinary Tours. For tourists and locals alike, this is a really great way to explore the culinary scene in Miami. I took the South Beach tour, but there is also one in Little Havana. You can book a private food tour or if you’d rather fill up on libations instead of food, you can opt for the South Beach Cocktail Tour.
I had an amazing time when I went on the South Beach Food Tour. There were so many different cuisines ranging from authentic Colombian empanadas to a traditional Jewish dessert. It was really cool to be guided around and learn random facts about the different parts of the area. I learned a lot, and I certainly ate a lot…
If you’re visiting Miami, I definitely recommend going on one of these tours. Not only will you be totally stuffed and satisfied, but you will get to experience the culture and history of South Beach and it’s surrounding areas. The organization has just launched a brand new tour through the Wynwood Art District. I cannot wait until I get to go next weekend! Rest assured that I will give you a full rundown on each and every bite!
Miami Culinary Tours Launches

Wynwood has become an epicenter of world-known street art, galleries and hosts some of the most talented chefs and one of a kind restaurants that now are part of the Wynwood Food Tour.
Miami, December 2013- The same group of passionate food concierge guides who brought you the South Beach Food Tour and Little Havana Food Tour have launched the Wynwood Art District Food Tour.

We are very proud to include a worldly perspective by sharing the secrets behind the art and treating guests to tastes ranging from Russia, Japan, Peru, Puerto Rico and even some very local dishes.” states Miami Culinary Tours founder, Grace Della. Stroll through the vibrant neighborhood of Wynwood learning how the area came to be, admire countless works of art and eat your way through it all. In a few hours you’ll visit up to seven different locations, making it the most unique and only dining experience in Wynwood. Meet chefs who will explain the their savory dishes, discover hidden shopping for unique artifacts and gallery gems – and even catch a few artists working on their street murals. Our tour guides are all locals and therefore they grew up experiencing the change in art and food reflected in this world-know part of town. With a focus on “street art” and it’s evolvement, we assure our guests will finish the tour with an abundance of knowledge regarding murals and their concepts.” says Grace Della, Founder of Miami Culinary tours.
