Description: This is a two hour walking tour through a humble but lively neighborhood...
This is a two hour walking tour through a humble but lively neighborhood, a kaleidoscope of culture, traditional customs, and vivid colors. Weave in and out of streets that mark the site of secret ritual offerings, the very location where the Bay of Pigs was planned, and the fountain of youth called Dominoe Park. Sample pure sugar cane juice from a local fruit market, the classic Cuban Sandwich at family restaurant, and watch cigar rollers follow a decades-old technique to create the finest cigars.

Had a good tour with the very freindly and knowledgeable Flavia. Perhaps spent too long with the introduction to Cuban/Miami history standing just at the Bay of Pigs Memorial but things got more interesting when we set off for the walk. Had a good visit to fruit and cigar shops and ended with a cuban lunch. My vegetarian preferences were... More

An enthusiastic tour guide, a good-enough lunch - just a few streets and sites; would be unpleasant if over 85 degrees!

Flavia offered a great tour of Little Havana, and even after living here 30 years we learned things we didn't know about the area. She provided a historical perspective that was thoughtful and reflective of the changing environment, politically and socially. Her input about preserving the historical character of Little Havana, and not making it one more urban sprawl area... More

Had a great time on our Little Havana Walking tour. It was just the four of us plus our wonderful guide, Flavia. She was prompt, very knowledgeable, and friendly. It was clear the shop owners respected her and we felt very welcomed by all. The provided lunch was delicious. We enjoyed the whole experience and enthusiastically recommend it.

My husband and I took the Little Havana tour and really enjoyed it. There was a wonderful mix of local culture, history, and politics. Flavia was excellent ... sensitive to providing a balanced view of the 1960s through the 2015s. I highly recommend this tour.

I joined the walking tour of little Havana after a week in Cuba and I loved how Flavia presented the tour and guided us through the place where 125000 Cubans landed after Castro took over. Although I knew already a lot about Cuba's politics and economical situation, I definitely learned new things from Flavia. She recommended the mojito at CubaOcho... More

Interesting, detailed. Politics and culture. The past, the present and the future of Little Havana. Our well-prepared guide, Flavia was awesome. The lunch was fantastic, more than enough. Watch the independent movie 'The Chef' before the tour :) We really did have a great time, money well-spent. The owner of the tour company came by when we had lunch and... More

We couldn't recommend this tour highly enough - our guide was kind, well-informed, and engaging - our whole family (including 3 kids, ages 10, 9 and 5) learned so much - and had so much fun doing so - from the Bay of Pigs memorial to a domino park to a cigar shop to tasting sugar cane juice and typical...

I highly recommend this tour and especially Flavia our tour guide. She is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and extremely well spoken, with an excellent command of English. She adjusted the emphasis of her comments to suit our interests, never hurried, and highlighted places of interest where she encouraged us to return after the tour was over. The tour focuses on a historic... More

A brilliant tour of Little Havana. Flavia, our amazing guide, is passionate about the area and is extremely knowledgeable. Got a question about the area - Flavia will know it! Highly recommend.
