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.

We had a fantastic time with Flavia who expertly dissected the different aspects of life for the past and present Cuban and wider Hispanic community, in little Havana. We would highly recommend, especially for the food! Thanks Flavia! Lauren and Jenny

My family and I did this tour on our recent trip to Miami, and it did not disappoint! We had 3 generations, the eldest being my 70 year old grandmother and we were all very pleased with this tour. We went from knowing almost nothing about Cuban immigrants to having a reasonable "cocktail party" understanding of recent events. Our guide,... More

Our group of 4 had a fabulous time under the direction of Flavia. The Little Havana tour was fascinating with an excellent overview of the history. We loved seeing the locals play dominoes and visiting the cigar shop. The lunch we had was better than the dinner we had the night before at Versailles. Highly recommend. tina

This tour does not involve a lot of walking but is full of Cuban history and culture. Christine was a great and knowledgeable tour guide. We had a chance to try Cuban food which was great and enjoy some cane juice on the way. Worth the cost!

Fabulous walking tour with Flavia and another couple. We recommend it to anyone wanting to learn about the neighborhood and Cuban culture from 1950s to today. Excellent take in every way.

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.
