Frequently Asked Questions
What is the refund/cancellation policy?
Once purchased, tickets cannot be refunded and cannot be rescheduled because your space is being guaranteed at the event. We do issue Gift Certificates good for up to one year in the event you cannot take the Tour.
Is there parking near the tour meeting point?
Yes, there is public parking located between 8th and 9th Avenue just north of Las Olas Boulevard. There is also private parking behind the Riverside Hotel off 8th Avenue. Specific parking details are included in the meeting location directions once tickets are purchased.
When is the best time to take the tour?
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 the tour. Since tours usually sell out well in advance, there is not a better day of the week versus another.
How much walking is involved? Is it a fast-paced tour?
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 blocks. Please do wear comfortable walking shoes.
Does the tour leader accept gratuities?
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 15-18%.
How much food is served on the food tour?
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 afterwards is not necessary.
What if I have dietary restrictions or allergies?
Please be sure and let us know if you or anyone in your group has a dietary restriction (e.g. vegetarian, allergies.) When you purchase your tickets. As long as we know in advance, we can accommodate your needs.
What about taking children on the tour?
While we offer both adult and children tickets, the tour is 3 hours long and some children have a limited attention span, and therefore the tour may not be appropriate for all of them. 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 the choice whether the tour is appropriate for your children.
Is the tour wheelchair and baby stroller accessible?
The Las Olas Food Tour is baby stroller friendly and however wheelchair accessibility may be difficult due to the narrow sidewalks.
If the food tour is sold out, can I get on a waiting list?
We do not provide a waiting list. If a date and time is sold out, please email us at email@example.com and let us know what date you are interested in if you do not see availability.
Do I have to purchase tickets in advance?
Tickets must be purchased in advance as tours 18 hours prior if you are the first booking. Tickets can be purchased through Fareharbor, just click on the BOOK NOW button or by calling (888) 442-3016.

Can I shop during the tour?
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.
Can I book a private group tour?
To learn more, please visit our private group tours page, and submit a private group tours form.
What happens if it rains?
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 the 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.
Is wine tasting included on the tour?
There may be wine provided at one of stops, however you may definitely order any beverages on your own tab as soon as we arrive at each stop. This gives you enough time to enjoy your wine/cocktail.
What types of food is served on the tour? Do we walk around and sample food?
The Las Olas Food Tour provides architectural commentary, historical facts, local culture, and culinary insight into a unique 3-hour experience. Food is provided from specialty food shops and local restaurants, we do not walk around and sample food. For a better idea of what types of restaurants we will visit, please check out their websites on the 'The Tours' tab or view our 'Events Gallery' page.
Does the tour end at the same place we meet?
No, but it does end just two blocks away and on the other side of the street from the meeting point usually at Kilwin's Las Olas.
