I went solo on this Little Havana Food & Walking Tour and had a lot of fun! Bethany, our guide, was very personable and knowledgeable about the Cuban culture/history. The food was delicious and the drinks were refreshing! Keep in mind, you are not receiving sample sizes of each food item; you’ll be receiving the full size. So, be sure to arrive on an empty stomach😋 There is lively music all around that’ll get you in a good mood. Highly recommend this tour!

The food was fantastic and our host was very informative. Be aware that while it was about 2.5 hours, you are not walking all that far, probably less than 10 blocks total? Take/buy bottled water, it's hot out!

What an amazing tour! Ariel our tour leader has a great energy and spirit, and provided so much great info about Little Havana beginnings. I'm so glad I booked this for our family, our kids did so well and loved the art all around plus they tasted some delicious food they never tried before, we now feel so familiar with Lil Havana and we can't wait to return and visit all the restaurants to eat, drink, dance and buy souvenirs. I'm recommending this to my friends and family from Los Angeles who want to visit Miami to definitely do this tour. Thank you Ariel for all the wonderful memories that my family and I made here :)
