What to expect
Meet your guide in Little Havana, and set out on foot through the historic neighborhood, which is at the heart of Cuban Miami’s social, cultural, and political scene. Stop at a series of family-owned destinations near Calle Ocho, tasting a mix of traditional and innovative dishes. The menu changes to keep the experience fresh, but favorite foods may include mamey and flan ice cream, plantain cups filled with chicken, picadillo empanadas, guava pastelito, Cuban coffee, guarapo juice, croquetas, dulce de leche churros and malanga frita—it’s like a taro root, but sweeter. As you walk, take in Little Havana cultural highlights as well, visiting artist studios, catching some Cuban rhythms, watching cigars being rolled, and learning about local spiritual beliefs and practices. Take advantage of the small-group atmosphere to ask questions about life in Little Havana, and get tips on where to eat, drink, and explore in Cuban Miami. Tour ends at the original departure point.

Fun Food Tour with Ria!
My wife and I enjoyed the food tour. Not too much walking. Enjoyed watching the cigars being rolled too!

The title of your lovely review says it all- you had FUN! That is due in no small part to your lively and engaging guide Ria. It is such a unique experience to see live cigar rolling and we are so happy, that among other experiences on our food tour, that the cigar making process was so enjoyable for you. We welcome you back anytime and we will have more fun to share!

It should be me thanking you! I had a ball with you both and our small intimate group. I’m so pleased you had a wonderful time on our food tour. Your feedback means a lot to us and so we really appreciate it that you took the time to let us know how your experience was. And thank you for showing us your fabulous dance moves- you are ready for a position as one of our neighborhood salsa dancers! Come back soon and I’ll have a plateful of your very favorite Cuban cuisine all ready for you!

Latecomers kind of ruined the pace
Apr 2021
It was a fun way to spend an afternoon. We had never been to Little Havana and it was a nice introduction. But we've gone on lots of food tours and this one was not the best.

Our guide was quite good - clearly knowledgeable & enthusiastic but the whole dynamic imo was thrown WAY off by late arriving participants, If others are late this is not my problem and I have little patience for being forced to wait for them. I felt for the guide (not her fault) but it was a bad start and messed up our timing. We literally waited 30 full minutes past start time while the guide awkwardly told a VERY long story about herself. I didn't particularly care about her very detailed background & all the detail was pretty clearly a stalling tactic while we had to wait for the late guests, Once they finally arrived (absent any apologies for delaying all the rest of us) she regrettably opted to repeat almost the entire resume/bio for them.

My suggestion is a policy to wait 5 minutes and then go. Late comers will simply have to find the tour along the route.

There was little or no covid concern or precautions. The atmosphere at our first (best by far) stop was unfortunately diminished by cramming us all (10) into a small booth. This may have been partly necessitated by the fact that we were so late due to the late arrivals but it was very uncomfortable & potentially concerning amidst covid. The guide talked NON STOP giving us no time to quietly soak up the environment, enjoy our drink and perhaps chat amongst ourselves.

My suggestion is multiple tables to give different families some covid safety space and more time and unscripted enjoyment of the stop.

The rest of the stops were much more casual sidewalk type bites - churros, ice cream, coffee, etc - nothing very exciting except one good empanada. I kept having the impression that we were rushed and late to every stop because of our tardy stop.

When it was over I was relieved - and returned to the first stop for a more leisurely (good) meal and drink.

Not bad overall but it could have been better.

I believe you must have taken a tour with another company. Two things that you mentioned in your review that we actually don't do in our tours. First, we don't wait for latecomers for more than five minutes out of respect to other guests, we even say this on the voucher people receive when they purchase tickets. Even though the tour doesn't wait for latecomers, we always help folks that are late to catch up as we believe this is good customer service. Another comment you made that gave us the clue you are not talking about our tour is your comment about COVID. You say in your review that the tour goes to a small booth but our tours don't visit a booth at all. We are in fact the only food tour company in Miami that received the Sansee Certification and the Safe Travel Stamp from the World Travel & Tourism Council. We take the health of our guides and customers very seriously.

Lil Havana taste and tour
May 2021 • Friends
The Tour was a great way to get around Lil Havana and taste the delicious Flavor of the Cuban Cuisine. Our tour guide, Karlee, was phenomenal. Loved her passion expressed when speaking of the food and history of Lil Havana. The tour is absolutely a must with Karlee when in the area.
