Craft Food Tours Celebrates Seven Years With Expansion

Craft Food Tours was founded out of a passion for discovering local hidden gems and learning about different cultures, neighborhoods and people through food. Delray Beach resident Anthony Guzman and business partner Matt Guidice saw an opportunity to bring a well-crafted food tour to our area seven years ago, and since then have expanded their business from Delray Beach to Fort Lauderdale.

The tours include the original Delray Beach Food Tour and complementing Delray Beach Happy Hour Tour alongside a Fort Lauderdale Food Tour and Fort Lauderdale Beach Food Tour. The partners also recently debuted their newest tour—Tacos & Tequila in Delray. Each excursion includes several restaurants and/or bar stops that each offer a different all-inclusive experience to participants through food and specialty sips. Plus, a food tour wouldn’t be complete without a lively rundown of the area’s history and culture that ties into our local food scene.

“We pride ourselves on giving guests the experience they can’t get anywhere else and having them walk away learning something new—like a new restaurant they never thought about going to,” says Guzman.

During season, he says the tours mainly host visitors, while residents looking for a fun, local experience make up most of his business in the off season. What started out as two friends with an idea has blossomed into a flourishing business engrained in our dining scene that employs about a dozen, supports local restaurants and offers unique entertainment to both locals and out-of-town guests.

Tours have varying dates and costs; visit craftfoodtours.com for additional details and to purchase tickets.
