Miami has long been a magnet for expats from Latin American countries like Peru, Colombia and, famously, Cuba. With them came vibrant cultures and traditional cuisines that over time have evolved into something unique to Miami itself. There are two main regions of Miami that have become the focal point of most of the culinary tours: Little Havana and South Beach. While the former is, unsurprisingly, dominated by the Cuban community, South Beach enjoys a little bit of everything. Either way, the best way to get to know it all is on a guided food tour, with plenty of tastings, naturally.

Some would argue that Cuban culture is the defining presence in Miami, and it’s almost impossible to find a food tour that doesn’t touch on that in one way or another. All of the culinary tours on this list have been selected for their consistently high standards, their excellent and well-curated itineraries and their great value for money. Almost all incorporate other elements of interest from Art Deco to culture and music. The hope is that by the end, you will feel both sated and educated. Here are five of the best food and culinary tours in Miami.
