What you'll do

On our Secret Food Tour: Key West Old Town, we'll walk far from the tourist traps of Duval to show you the real city and its best food. You'll gain insight into how the diverse cultural influences of Key West have shaped the island into a unique destination that's globally renowned for its exceptional gastronomic experiences. Our local guides will take you on a journey to explore the history and culture of "The Key to the Caribbean," sharing their passion and passing down stories that have been told from generation to generation.

You'll discover the oral history of Key West's prosperity and how treasures transformed this small island into a worldwide attraction.

Enjoy traditional Key West bites, taste the freshness of ingredients that only a coastal city can offer, and uncover flavors you won't find anywhere else in the world. Plus there’s our amazing secret dish that you can only find about it on the day!

  • We will kick off our journey with a classic Key West breakfast: a Cuban-style bagel.
  • Next, you'll wander down Duval Street to a local haunt where you'll discover the island's best jerk wings—a truly exciting treat.
  • Following that, you'll savor our delicious Secret Dish.
  • Now it is time to cool off with a rum tasting from one of the oldest distilleries in Key West.
  • From there, you'll indulge in conch fritters.
  • And to top it all off, you'll enjoy a local favorite: Key lime pie dipped in chocolate!

WHY OLD TOWN?

Old Town is the historic district of Key West - Ernest Hemingway lived here for most of the 1930's; it's home to a charming, historic lighthouse and the city's buzzing food and bar scene along Duval street; fresh local seafood is caught daily by local fisherman; and it's where you'll find some of the friendliest people on earth.

Soak up the charm of the neighborhood's fully-restored, historically significant Victorian, shotgun, and conch-style homes on tree-lined streets. The area's atmosphere makes it easy to lose yourself in the magic of Key West, immersing yourself in the vibe of the Conch Republic. Let our guide entertain you with funny and interesting anecdotes about this beautiful district

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
