The Little Havana Tour was a lot of fun! It was the perfect mixture of learning the history of Little Havana/Cuban culture and food tasting. Our tour guide, Andi, was great! She was very upbeat and knowledgeable about everything. Thanks Andi for a great experience and showing us around! Maybe include a little Cuban dancing at Ball and Chain for an elevated experience! Overall 5/5 experience. We had a blast and definitely would recommend to others!

It was my first time visiting Little Havana. I would definitely recommend this tour, especially if you enjoy trying new foods. Reasonable amount of walking, plenty of shade, and breaks. History and humor was an added bonus! The tour guide was Jasmine. She was wonderful! Very informative and fun. She knows her stuff! In addition, I have a food allergy and assumed I would not be able to try any food on the tour. She texted the day of and I informed her that I had an allergy. She planned ahead and informed the restaurants/food venues. I was then able to try some amazing food, which I was not expecting. It was a great experience and I am so glad my guide was Jasmine! I will definitely take family and friends on this same tour, hopefully with Jasmine as our guide!

Wow. Such a unique and fascinating tour. The food was amazing but it was so good to have that paired with the history of the Cuban people in Miami. Learned a lot and really enjoyed the tour guide Ariel, very engaging, helpful, and funny throughout. This was by far the best thing I did in Miami! I would love to do this again with a friend someday.
