Take this food tour, it is great! My friend and I were only in Key West for one full day and this was the perfect way to experience the town. We got to try a much wider variety of food than we would have otherwise during our short trip. The food (and rum) was great, but the walking component was possibly my favorite part. Our guide, Maxwell, was fantastic. He grew up in Key West and was personable and full of stories. He took us all through the historic part of town, which I wouldn't have known to visit if I hadn't done the tour. Maxwell also gave great recommendations for restaurants and bars, so you'll continue to benefit even after the tour is over! I also felt that the price was very reasonable for the amount of food and time (remember to bring cash for a tip, they deserve it!)

Awesome activity and a great way to sample some different restaurants when you first arrive for vacation. Kaiya combined interesting food preparation comments along with a little history of the owners and their restaurant. In addition, your guide will point out some of the interesting landmarks along the route. While the individual portions are not large, collectively they add up to a large meal so it is advisable that you do not eat breakfast beforehand.

Top tour !! Our guide has lived in Key West with her husband for over 25 years. She was very committed and understood how to bring the neighborhoods and their people to us in a super-charming way with small stories and incredible knowledge. The dishes were delicious, in a restaurant there was even a vegetarian option. But I would have been very happy without it.
