I had an amazing time overthere. The tour guide was so friendly and kind. She really knew everything about the Cuban history and she really inspired me with the stories she told. She let us ate a lot of different kind of foods. IT WAS SO GOOD!! The tour ended at an chocolat bar, I recommend you to try the chocolat with Guava. It was one of the best things I’ve ever ate. I really recommend this activity!
I booked this tour to take my 16 year old nieces who love art and wanted to learn more about the Cuban culture. Annalise was our tour guide, raised in little Havana she was a wealth of information!! The girls LOVED the tour as well as myself! Come hungry, lots of food! From learning about Little Havana's history and the changes over the years to learning about Cuban history and the evolution of little Havana to the extensive food, coffee, cigar making shops, old family stores still present and the art museums this was the absolute perfect tour for us! The girls can't wait to come back and take another tour with Annalise! HIGHLY recommend!
This is easily one of the best best food tours I have ever been on. That says something, as I have been on city and food tours across many different citys including Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, Portland, Memphis, New Orleans, Seattle, Detroit to name a few. I have also been on multiple Miami based food tours with a different popular company here in town, including their Little Havana tour. This blows that one out of the water by a mile! It is not just the passion of the tour guide/owner for the area. It's the knowledge, history and choice of locations that I found were simply much better. In the past three years, I have been on a Little Havana food/tour, each of those years. By contrast, I left my tour knowing so much more about Little Havana and the culture than I had on previous tours combined! As a lover of history, this was very rewarding for comparable cost. If I had to recommend between the two companies, this is by far a much better experience and value for the time and money. It takes a lot to impress me because I travel so much. However, this tour and company really stands out from the pack. Highly recommended! I am sure that the dishes are subject to change with the season, however along the tour we had stopped at the following establishments for a variety of samplings and history of Cuban fare. You are going to be full by the end, so do not eat prior to going on your tour! You are definitely going to get your money's worth!

Absolutely wonderful time. Our guide, Faruk, is highly is knowledgeable of the local area and a consummate professional. You'll have a personalized tour of several of the local eateries, many of which are off the beaten track, sampling delicious food from coffee and pastries to empanadas and tacos. His insight to the unique history of Miami will keep you captivated and experience the charm of little Havana as though you were a local. Come hungry!
