[MIAMI, FL, APRIL 4, 2021]- Miami Culinary Tours is pleased to announce that the company has won approval to conduct their award-winning tours inside the coveted Wynwood Walls. The organization is one of only four tour companies that have been granted this prestigious distinction. “We were the first tour company conducting food and art tours in the neighborhood of Wynwood. We know the evolution that has happened in Wynwood since its inception”, says owner, Grace Della. “This approval to conduct tours within the Wynwood Walls is so important to our company because Wynwood Walls is known internationally for being one of the best places in the world to see graffiti art.”

We are proud of our guide’s commitment to provide a top-notch experience in the Wynwood Walls to the thousands of satisfied guests all around the world we have served. It is through their hard work, we were one of only four companies that were ultimately chosen”, says Della. “It is an honor to be approved by Goldman Properties to continue sharing our passion for art and Wynwood.” The company also had to provide all documentation including license and proof of insurance in order to be in stiff contention.
