What to Expect

Unique Food Tastings – Our guided 3-hour Southernmost Food Tasting & Cultural Walking Tour visits 6 locally-run “mom and pop” establishments in historic old town. Delicious and mouth watering food tastings, enough for a hearty lunch, are served from ethnic eateries and specialty shops that are unique to the Florida Keys. Stops include authentic Cuban roast pork, rum-runner cocktails from an old speakeasy, and world famous key lime pie from Key West’s most iconic restaurant.

 

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. We can’t wait to tell you about how the island survived them. Our passionate, local guides share their knowledge and recommendations of architectural gems, tropical flora, and exciting local attractions and restaurants.

 

Small Group Sizes & Knowledgable Local Guides – The tour group size maxes out at 12 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.
