My husband and I had a great time on this tour and highly recommend it. We are in our mid thirties and were visiting Miami for our first time on vacation. We were debating about whether to do a group tour or just explore on our own, and I’m really glad we ended up doing the tour because we got to see and try so many things that we would not have thought of on our own without spending lots of time doing extensive research. It was also great to not have to deal with a difference in opinion between the two of us as to where we should go but to just have someone telling us where to go. :)

If you have more time to spend, you could do the tour one day and then go back another day to spend more time at your favorite spots. Or you could come back in the evening of the same day to visit one of the restaurants or live music clubs. But for us it was the perfect amount of time. We went back to a shop after the tour ended to purchase an item we had seen on the tour.

We especially appreciated our guide Martica’s stories of growing up in the neighborhood and her insight into the culture and history of Cuba.

We were also grateful that they were able to accommodate vegetarians…the food we ate was all very delicious and filling. We ate fried plantain boats stuffed with seasoned peppers and onions (at a place where the meat eaters ate Cuban sandwiches), spinach and cheese empanadas (the others ate pork empanadas), freshly made churros, pan de yucca, and pastelitos de guava, and we drank mojitos, fresh pressed sugarcane juice, and Cuban coffee. And we got full sized portions of all the food—not just tiny bites to taste.

We definitely got our money’s worth and more and will be doing more cultural food tours in the future because of this experience!

Mariala was an OUTSTANDING guide for this wonderful tour. Her experience as a tour guide here in Little Havana as well as previously in Havana, Cuba allows her to make the history, culture, and food of this important area of Miami come alive. Her relationship with the family owned businesses allows her clients to experience the best representatives of the neighborhood culinary scene, including empanadas, Cuban sandwiches, mojitos, Cuban coffee, croquettes, guava juice and pastries, and churros. The history and process of rolling authentic Cuban
cigars was also very informative. Highly recommend that you book this tour if you want an excellent overview of Calle Ocho (main shopping and restaurant area of Little Havana), but you must go HUNGRY to
fully enjoy the experience, as the portions are plentiful and huge. We have been on numerous food/history tours in different cities, and this definitely ranks among the best.

This is actually my second time doing the Little Havana Food Tour because I enjoyed it so much a few years back. This second experience was just as great! Because of some poor planning on my part, I signed my partner and myself up for a tour at a time that was very close to our disembarkment off my cruise in the port of Miami. The process took a lot longer than I had anticipated, and needless to say, we were late to join the tour.

Despite that, Marco, our tour guide, stayed in touch with me as they went along with the tour to make sure we could meet up with them. When we finally got there, he had bagged up all of the delicious food that we missed earlier in the tour. He went above and beyond for us, and we really appreciated how accommodating he was.

As always, the food was incredible: delicious empanadas, cuban sandwiches, fresh juice, pastries and more. I highly recommend if you're looking to learn more about this unique, rich neighborhood and experience some delicious food along the way. And again, thanks to Marco for being such an informative, fantastic guide!

Andi is THE BEST tour guide. She checked with us individually hours before the tour, to make sure she knew of our food allergies and alcohol tolerances. I am hearing-impaired, and Andi happily wore a microphone I gave her, in addition to the microphone she uses for everyone on the tour. She checked frequently to make sure I could hear everything she was saying.

Andi also did an impressive job getting us engaged as a group. We had many hilarious conversations (introducing ourselves, Q&A with storeowners), and we also shared a thrilling moment when a lady in our group caught a wild iguana in the coffee shop.

The 2.5 hours really flew by. We stopped at so many places I lost count, but I was not tired at all. We walked maybe 4 blocks at most, and there were plenty of restrooms and water offered at every stop. I also loved the historic information Andi shared about murals, historic figures, storeowner families, locals, and more. I wish we had done this tour earlier on our trip (we did it on the last day), and I wish there were longer tours offered in Little Havana!

Hoji, our tour guide, was the best ever. His knowledge of the Cuban culture, history and food was excellent. On top of that, Hoji had a great sense of humor which made the tour super fun. We got to see sugar cane pressed, then we tasted a sweet drink made from the juice, and that was just the beginning. Hoji gave us insight into the Cuban cigar as we watched a cigar being rolled. We tasted an authentic empanada and guava smoothie, a tradional Cuban coffee, a delicious Cuban sandwich and a refreshing mojito with a sugar cane stick to press the mint leaves. This was topped off with an guava cheesecake ice cream treat. As we went to each site we learned about the art and architecture of Little Havana I would absolutely recommend this tour, and hopefully you get Hoji as your tour guide!]

My family (including 2 younger boys) thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Mirka was our guide and she was extremely knowledgeable about the local cuisine, history of the area, and tips for shopping. We spent over 3 hours with her walking up and own the main strip sampling a REAL mojito, cuban sandwich, cafe cubano, curros, sugar cane juice, ice cream, and other assorted treats. This was a great experience that I would recommend for anyone looking to appreciate great food and culture!

We are so happy that our Little Havana Food and Walking Tour was a successful family affair! Yes, Mirka does know every nook and cranny of the neighborhood and we are so happy that she was instrumental in providing a great afternoon. And you said it well-the mojito we serve is indeed the REAL deal! We look forward to your return to Miami very soon.

This tour was great. Martica did an amazing job covering the history of Little Havana and Cuba, explaining all about the food we were eating, and overall making it a fun enjoyable experience for everybody. She grew up in the area and still lives there, she really cares about making the tour a good experience. She was not rushed at the end and was open to questions and taking as much time as anyone wanted for follow up questions after the tour. I am not a foodie at all but I have to say the food was really good and there is a lot of food, the food on the tour definitely covers lunch +. The Empenada, the Cuban Sandwich, and the Mojito were delicious, the restaurant we sat in for the Cuban Sandwich and Mojito had a great atmosphere too. No hesitation in recommending this tour.

My boyfriend and I booked the Little Havana Food and walking tour in Miami. From the reservation process to the actual tour, everything was phenomenal. Our tour guide, Robyn, had such great high energy, she made the tour very personal and we felt comfortable with the other people in our group. She was very knowledgeable and gave the tour a personal touch by telling her own family stories. Each food stop was at an authentic Cuban eatery, made fresh and tasted amazing - my personal favorite was the Cubano sandwich! Although there was a ton to see, the walk itself was not very long distance, which was nice. When Robyn discovered it was my birthday, she arranged a nice little surprise cake at one of the resturants, which was a greatly appreciated! For our first food tour, this one set the bar high, we had a great time and definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for some kind of combined activity or packing alot into a short trip in Miami!

Please come back soon so I can spoil you some more with another hot and juicy Cubano sandwich!

We really enjoyed this walking tour. It started at a memorial for the Bay of Pigs invasion. He told us what happened and what went wrong: the ships carrying patriots arrived at the entrance of Bay of Pigs. But they discovered a coral reef blocked much of the entrance (Bay of Pigs had not been in the original plan). So they entered the Bay in small boats, but it wasn't the same. They were supposed to hold the shore area of the Bay for 72 hours, and then the US military would come. They almost held it that long (69 hours), but some locals were happy with the new government because it had sent teachers to teach reading and such. So the patriots were captured and had a rough time in Cuban prison. This is only from my memory, and I may have details wrong. But this is what I think we learned. Then were learned about the poet Jose Marti, who wrote a poem about a young lady from the Guantanamo area. It became a song, "Guantanamera." Celia Cruz sang one of the most famous versions of that song. There is a big, new colorful mural of her on the walk. We stopped for papaya juice and a pastry filled with fruit and cheese. He took us to a store where people rolled cigars (nice photo op), also to a store for Cuban coffee (one secret: they use brown sugar to make it sweet, gives it a slight carmel taste). Stopped at a public park where folks were playing dominos (the "2nd most popular game in Cuba" after baseball). We ended with lunch: a cuban sandwich (roast pork, ham, melted cheese, pickle, creamy mustard, all on a fresh roll; also shredded beef in a sauce called "ropa vieja). He told us other cultures are moving into Little Havana- there is now a Mexican restaurant along Calle Ocho. So time will tell if it remains predominantly Cuban. Watching the chickens roam around the neighborhood was fun.
