Amy was our guide and was very knowledgeable about the area. We had all the best of the Keys from Cuban, fish tacos, conchs and of course Rum. One of the best tours we’ve done !
We had an awesome time with our tour guide Tracey! I highly recommend this tour; it was a good mix of food, drink, laughs and cultural information. It is a great way to see the area and learn about Key West history.
This was an excellent tour. Our tour guide, Tracy was fantastic. He is funny, engaging and shared a lot of interesting facts about Key West. We were able to sample a variety of delicious foods from Cuban cuisine to Key Lime pie. I highly recommend anyone visiting Key West to sign up for this tour. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes as there is a good bit of walking involved on uneven pavement at times. However you walk at a comfortable enough pace even in the heat of the summer and Tracy stops often for water and bathroom breaks so everyone did fine. We really felt like we got a good idea of all the wonderful food Key West has to offer.
We had a great time with Tracey. Wonderful way to find some new places and learn more about the city. Definitely suggest this tour on your first day or two in the city.
This was a wonderful experience in a small group, sampling typical and local types of food. We went to a few restaurants that I already had on my list to try!
Our good was friendly and knowledgeable, imparting her knowledge not only of present day culture but also historical anecdotes.
We had a great time, really enjoyed the food and booze. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the restaurants, the food, and neighbourhoods we walked through.
I would highly recommend this tour. The food and drink choices were varied, excellent quality and unique to Key West. Our guide was a local so he could offer advice on not only the stops on our tour but Key West in general. I would advise you to take this tour early in your stay so you can go back to the places you really enjoy - we took it late in our week-long stay and by then our time was limited. Well worth the price, you will not regret it -
Shannon led a great tour, and the group was fun. I learned a lot about the history of people and food in Key West, and never would have known to visit the places that we did. I also learned to like fish tacos and rum.
This tour was outstanding. Shannon was a lot of fun. They made accommodations for our food allergies. It was a great way to visit some of Key West's eating and drinking establishments that we probably would not have other owe made it to.
Great tour. Nick was very informative about Key West history. Food was amazing. Fun way to spend a few hours off of Duval Street.
My son and I went on this food tour our first day in Key West. It made sense to learn the right places to eat up front. Little did we know we'd also learn the history of the area along with the history of the food. Nick was our guide and I'd request him again - he was the epitome of Key West. The food on the tour was top notch and they happen to be some of my favorites - fish tacos, conch fritters, and more. We spent the next four days in Key West feeling as if we were locals. Highly recommend.
The tour was amazing! The Conch Fritters were amazing- cooked perfectly! Fish tacos were so good. My favorite was the authentic Cuban food at El Sitador (sp?) .... but please know that this was a tour where you mostly eat outside, so it's hot!
My husband I went on this fun food tasting tour yesterday. Our guide was Nick, and he was a delight! He was so friendly and knowledgeable about not only the various food and it's origins but also the interesting history of the area landmarks. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would love to take it again if we return to Key West!
This was a super tour. Nick, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and friendly. He gave us great ideas for restaurants and the food we tried was all outstanding. Highly recommend hanging out with Nick and doing this tour.
What a great tour. It was our first food tasting tour, but wow it was amazing. Great tour guide and really good stops. Highly recommend!
Had a very nice tour with Shannon. She was very pleasant and a good tour guide. The restaurants served great food and we got plenty to eat - main course, dessert and beverages.
Shannon did a fabulous job with providing information on the vendors visited and providing background on the foods sampled. The restaurants visited were outstanding and the food tasted very good. I would definitely recommend this walking tour to anyone who enjoys eating and getting local flavors in the areas visited.
What a great way to get an overview to the insiders places to eat while in Key West. Our tour guide was Shannon and she was super great - energetic, enthusiastic, and fun with loads of fun facts and information! We started out at a Cuban place that is not in the touristy area, so one would have needed to know about it because you would not necessarily pass by. We then went onto super fish tacos, conch fritters, a speak easy, key lime pie and tour of a rum distillery - having samples at each of the stops. The food was more than adequate for a filling lunch - and tons of information. We liked the Cuban place so much that we returned that evening for dinner. Shannon also gave us several other recommendations of places to eat and things to do while visiting - several that we did indeed try and all were super! We loved our 3 1/2 hours together and would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Loved it!
