What to Expect

Unique Food Tastings – Our guided 3-hour Seafood Tasting & Cultural Walking Tour visits 6 locally-run establishments in historic old town. Delicious and mouth watering food tastings, enough for a hearty lunch, are served from eateries and specialty shops that are unique to the Florida Keys. Stops include fish tacos from a nationally acclaimed food truck, lobster mac and cheese and craft beer from a local brewery! Please note- people with shellfish or gluten-free allergies can be accommodated. For any other allergy or dietary restriction, please consider the Southernmost Food Tour as substitute food items are more available.

 

Historical & Cultural Experience – Between tastings, you’ll experience what life is like for a Conch (a native to Key West). Today’s Key West local population is an evolution of native Indians, Cubans, Bahamians, Greeks, explorers, adventurers, pirates, wreckers, scavengers, fisherman, hippies, writers, and artists. Walk along the historic seaport, and hear their stories of a time past. We’ll also dive in to the history and cultural significance that seafood offers locals, and how it was (and still is) one of our driving economic forces. Our passionate, local guides share their knowledge of architectural gems, tropical flora, and exciting local attractions and restaurants.

 

Small Group Sizes & Knowledgable Local Guides – The tour group size maxes out at 15 people to ensure that there is a personalized and memorable experience for all. Our local guides are experts on Key West and are eager to show an authentic side to our island. There is so much more to Key West than Duval Street! After the guided tour, explore Key West’s neighborhoods with confidence and take advantage of recommendations from your local guide on the restaurants, attractions, entertainment and cultural offerings.

Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

We CAN provide substitutions for vegetarians, pescatarians, gluten-free, those who do not drink alcohol, and shellfish/nut allergies. Allergies and preferences must be indicated in advance at the time of ticket purchase. Please note, substitute dishes will NOT be the iconic Key West dishes that regular participants on the tour will receive. 

 

 

 

Yes! On the Southernmost Food Tour, participants get to sample spirits from a distillery, as well as a mixed cocktail drink. On the Seafood Lover’s Tour, guests will get to try two 4oz beers from a local craft brewery.

The three hour tours cover around 1.4 miles. However, we have frequent stops and walk no longer than 4 blocks in-between each stop. The island is flat, and we walk at a very moderate pace. We will be standing the majority of the tour, but we also will be seated for at least two of the tastings, about 30-45 minutes total for both.

Our Southernmost Food Tour can accommodate guests with strollers, and guests requiring wheelchair assistance. However, the tour is not suitable for guests with severe mobility issues.

We can always offer a modified tour route but it goes without saying that some of the presentations throughout the tour will be missed and the overall experience will not be as complete for the tour participant in that case.

If you are planning to push a stroller, please let us know at least 24 hours before the tour begins to so that we can ensure you have the best tour experience possible.
