South Beach Sunset Dinner Tour
2022 Tour dates - to be announced
Welcome to our first season in the sun and fun capital of Florida. South Beach, the coolest diverse neighborhood in Miami Beach, is a perfect vacation island experience with a Latin twist.
We wanted to introduce our new tour company in 2020 but covid changed everyone's plans. So, let's get back to what we love, indulge our passions, visit new places, meet new friends, and taste new delicious foods.
We'll begin with a welcoming Margarita at the sunset hour overlooking Biscayne Bay. At our next stop along the bay, we'll have a baked Argentinian chicken empanada, and the first of two desserts, a Nutella banana empanada. The next course will be a lobster taco. Our last eating stop, we'll have Italian gelato with our plastic-free edible spoons.
When we’re not eating, we'll be visiting the famous Nikki Beach, South Point Pier where the beach and bay meet and see beautiful Art Deco buildings along the way. The last stop on the tour is the Versace Mansion, ending on Ocean Drive and 11th Street.
The tour takes 2 hours, the walking distance is 1 mile, and costs $59. per person. Vegetarian options are available, please let us know in advance. There is no charge for children not eating, baby carriages and dogs are welcome.
Bruce, a highly rated tour guide, some of you might know from Walking Tours Manhattan in New York, which received 4 ½ stars on TripAdvisor, has relocated to Miami Beach and will be your Tour Guide.
You’ll savor the local authentic foods and culture of this inviting tropical paradise wrapped in a friendly sun-filled beach environment. Purchase your tickets in our shop below and we'll promptly email you back a confirmation along with the meeting place.

Sustainable Miami Beach Foodie Tours was started in September 2019 and its first tours were scheduled for March 2020. Then Covid arrived and changed our worlds. It changed the mission of the young food tour company from thinking only about serving the best foods in Miami Beach, to how fragile life can be. The world changed rapidly last Spring and instead of food and travel, we all concentrated on survival.
The awful tragedy brought death to many families, friends, and loved ones. We became preoccupied with mask-wearing, socially distancing, and sheltering in place. Hundreds of thousands of Americans have died and thankfully a vaccine was produced in record time to stop this surge of death. The numbers are now encouraging as more Americans become vaccinated and the number of new infections has dropped.
Our focus has changed too with no tours to lead and no tourists to welcome, the company put its time into thinking about how we can make Miami Beach a more sustainable city and an even better place to live and visit in the future than it was when Covid arrived.
Its founder, Bruce Scher confesses he hadn’t thought of making Miami Beach a better place to live and visit before Covid arrived, but the tragedy has changed his thinking and he has developed a 4 point plan to help Miami Beach become a sustainable travel tour destination.
Our new mission is;
1) To become more eco-friendly, and plastic-free by eliminating plastic trash bags and plastic spoons on tours, and use only edible cutlery and reusable cloth trash bags. A staggering 8 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year.
2) To reduce our carbon footprint, we are contributing financially to the Nature Conservancy's Plant a Billion Trees program. One young tree can absorb CO2 at a rate of 13 pounds per tree yearly.
3) To preserve the beauty of our local beaches, we volunteer in local clean-up efforts to remove seaweed and trash from our shoreline.
4) To help restaurants reduce waste that goes into the trash can be saved or repurposed through composting and growing their own gardens.
Bruce Scher has over 10 years of experience in the food tour industry, having served as President of Walking Tours Manhattan, New York City. That's a picture of Bruce above riding his new e-bike after trading in his gas-powered 2019 Honda Acura.

We all agree sustainable travel can help cut down the amount of waste flowing into our oceans. It’s such a big problem that sometimes we as individuals meaning well say let the governments of the world solve the problem. If we as individuals make small eco-friendly changes we can help make the...
