    • Traditional Peruvian fare (ceviche and Lomo Saltado) at Chalan on the Beach, a family owned and operated restaurant
    • Bombolone (Italian donut) and Italian drip coffee at Andrix Café
    • Every tour ends at The Frieze Ice Cream Factory for a scoop of all natural, super-premium Kosher ice cream & sorbet made fresh daily in the shop.The Taste of South Beach Food Tour is more than a food tour - it’s an architectural, historic and cultural walking tour. Besides delving into the foods of Miami, you’ll discover the dramatic history, diverse culture and stunning Art Deco architecture of Miami Beach with your knowledgeable local tour guide.

      Our guide, Alex, was phenomenal. He not only described the food we were eating but also provided historical information about the area and the restaurants we visited.

      Did this tour as a way to pass the evening. I’m not really into the party nightlife but wanted to taste some of the local food. The tour did not disappoint. The tour offered 5-6 stops at local restaurants. There was plenty of local food mostly served family style. Our tour guide “Richie” was great at making the group feel like a big family and keeping us entertained with his local knowledge throughout the tour. Lots of fun, I highly recommend this tour as a perfect sampler of the area.

      This was our first food tour ever and it was FANTASTIC! We were in Charleston on a cruise stop and loved learning all the history of it from our guide Franny as well as all the delicious food at the Low Country Bistro, candy store, Noisy Oyster, Smoke House BBQ, and shopping in a Tea and Spice shoppe.Highly recommend Bull Dog Tours to all!!!

      This food tour was excellent, my wife and I both really enjoyed it.
      The group was small, 7 people and an energetic guide Sol.
      The area and history was interesting, the cross sampling of food delicious and large portions.
      A really good outing.

      Great tour on a sunny, not too hot day in December. My DH and I were two of three customers since it was off-season and felt we got a personalized tour. Our guide Gabe was knowledgeable about the area, the history, and the cuisine and was very entertaining. Highlights were mojito, empanadas, and Cuban egg roll at Bella Cuba ceviche and saltado at Peruvian restaurant Chalan on the Beach. We learned about some of the Art Deco architecture in the area, history of the 1926 hurricane, and strolled on the beach awhile. The pace was comfortable and we felt satisfied but not rushed. Definitely recommend.

      WE really enjoyed our tour with Alex, our guide, on a windy rainy day in Miami Beach. ALex not only gave us a complete walking tour of the region, along with the history and architectural hi-lights, he made sure to keep us out of the rain and comfortable. There were just the 4 of us on this particular day, so it was like having a private guide. We tasted south beach food at the first stop, Cuban food at the second place, Peruvian food at the third, and kosher ice cream at the final stop. Alex explained the cuisine we tasted from the ceviche to yucca fries to cuban pork. The food was abundant and we enjoyed tasting all of it. I highly recommend this as a great way to get to know South Beach.

      Pauline our guide was amazing, our group was small just 6 which allowed her time to really get to know each of us. All 3 restaurants were authentic, family run, the history of Miami , it's people and the culture of each place was depicted in the foods we sampled and as we walked Art Deco District

      Highly recommend this great walking and eating experience. We have not do a food tour before and our only regret is we should have done it earlier in the holiday to go back to the restaurants we enjoyed. Favourite one being the Cuban, Bella Cuba. Just a little rum missing from mojito . Guides were very knowledgable and fun. Omagh and Gabriel complimented each other, we were lucky to get a private tour and they had great personalities. ThAnks guys for a well spent 3 hours on the last day of our holiday.

      We had a wonderful time on our tour. Our guide, Sam was terrific. He was knowledgeable, took his time to point out many buildings of interest and had great stories about the local history. The food was so good! Different things and flavors at each stop. I highly recommend this tour, well worth the time and money.
