Parking: Closest parking is at the Heron Parking lot behind the Unique Treasures store which is limited to 4 hours at a time, but can be extended. The Las Olas Parking lot is just west of the Heron Parking lot which is across the street and has no limits and costs a little less.
We highly recommend taking the tour at the beginning of your visit so you allow plenty of time to revisit many of the locations that you will learn about on tour. Since tours usually sell out well in advance, there is not a better day of the week versus another.
Tours generally last from 2 1/2 hours to 3 hours, and participants can expect to be standing or walking for a majority of the time. At many of the locations, we do sit down to eat. We walk at a moderate pace, covering approximately 16-18 blocks (less than 2 miles). Please do wear comfortable walking shoes.
YES. Gratuities are not included in the ticket price and are greatly appreciated by your Tour Guide. The standard gratuity in the service industry is 18-20%.
With the combination of drink and food tastings combined with breaks for architectural, cultural, and historical insight, most participants are comfortably full after our food tour. Only consider eating a light breakfast if you are an early riser (coffee/a bite of fruit) before the tour, so come hungry. For most participants, lunch afterward is not necessary.
Please be sure and let us know if you or anyone in your group has any dietary restrictions (e.g. Vegetarian, Vegan, and any allergies) when you purchase your tickets. As long as we know in advance, we do accommodate your needs. We also will text you to confirm the day prior to the tour.
While we offer the tours for both adults and children, the tour is 3 hours long, and some children have a limited attention span, and therefore the tour may not be appropriate for all children. Parents who know their children best should assess the situation individually. Since there is a lot of standing and walking, please consider this when making a choice about whether the tour is appropriate for your children.
The Las Olas Food Tour is baby stroller friendly; however, wheelchair accessibility may be difficult due to the narrow sidewalks.
We do not provide a waiting list. If a date and time is sold out, please email us at [email protected] and let us know what date you are interested in if you do not see the availability.

We ask that you please wait to shop until after the tour so that we can stay on our food stops schedule and continue with the informative tour and food tastings in a timely manner. We ask you to allow time at the end of the tour to return to your favorite locations and/or stores. The tours are on a schedule to arrive at each tasting location, so it is important to stay on schedule as the food is freshly prepared for the participants.
To learn more, please visit our private group tours page, and submit a private group tours form.
The tours are held in rain or shine. In the event that it rains, we will be able to go inside many of the establishments on tour. However, we advise you to check the weather conditions for the day that you have booked and dress appropriately and bring ponchos and umbrellas as needed.
Included in the tour is one alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage. You may definitely order any beverages on your own tab as soon as we arrive at the Food Stops and this allows you enough time to enjoy your cocktail.
The Las Olas Food Tour provides architectural commentary, historical facts, local culture, and culinary insight into a unique 3-hour experience.
