We really enjoyed this tour, and our guide Gina was very good and enjoyable to be with for the 2-3 hour tour. It's a walking tour, but it's very easy walking, punctuated by frequent stops and opportunities to sit down. The tour was a good chance for us to see South Beach, as we were first timers to the area. So we enjoyed the historic architecture and the beachy ambience. Of course this is a culinary tour, so food and drink are involved. And to that point, our initial meeting place was a restaurant where we all introduced ourselves (around 12-15 people on our tour as I recall), and enjoyed a popular drink from Colombia (a most interesting combo of beer and orange cream soda - quite better than what you might think), as well as a Colombian inspired empanada, and the most amazing ceviche we've ever had, which was said to be a Peruvian preparation. We made three more stops for food, and keep in mind these are all what you would think of as apps or small plates, and a gelato dessert stop.
We do culinary/architectural tours in most major cities that we visit for the first time because we love local culture and food! Mirka did NOT disappoint! As we strolled down the fabulous Washington, Collins, and Ocean Streets of Miami Beach...we were introduced to several types of cuisine (all extremely interesting and flavorful), aquainted with the history of art deco architecture (facinating!) and all by a knowledgeable, personality plus, "cute as a button", Argentinian guide named Mirka...a Miami native, whose love and special perspective for the city was evident. Every minute was entertaining, every minute was educational, every minute was enjoyable...we will do it again next time we visit Miami.
We thoroughly enjoyed it! Mojitos and snacks half way through the session. The instructors were amazing and very patient and we felt like we had some moves by the end of the session. We stuck around at the club and was not disappointed by the performances and the vibe. This is a must when visiting Miami!
We got to South Beach, checked in to our hotel, and immediately started the food tour. We went to 6 restaurants for portions ranging from very small to way too much to eat. Cuisines ranged from Columbian to Cuban, to European (French), and Italian. Wonderful way to start a vacation in South Beach!!
Teachers were wonderful! So much fun! Warning the venue allows smoking so just be aware that it gets smokey outside the room the class takes place. Inside that room was fine. Such a great time!
