      This tour was amazing. We had Ralph as our guide, he is an American-born Cuban and lives in Little Havana (he even showed us his house). Could not get more local and authentic. He knew all of the vendors personally as well as all of the locals. In addition to the great food, we learned a lot about the culture -- but not to the point where it was a boring history lesson. The tour struck just the right balance. For example, Ralph took us to Domino Park and explained to us the differences/rules of Cuban dominos, and we watched the elders play two games. We left this tour completely stuffed and did not eat dinner that day!

      Little Havana is a great tour. Our guide Bethany was great - knowledgeable about Miami Cuban history and culture, she took us to all the cool places and had a lot to share and talk about! One piece of feedback is maybe a tiny bit more food or bigger portions. We came hungry! Would highly recommend this tour.

      This was a wonderful tour and great introduction to Miami / Little Havana. Our guide was awesome, it was fast paced so it was never boring. But not too fast that we couldn't keep up. We went to one bar and had a half hour there to drink our mojitos, which was perfect. The tour ended up being about 3 hours long so don't plan anything immediately afterwards. All the food was great. Also, I am a vegetarian and they were able to easily accommodate me. Thanks again!
