2022

  • Traditional Cuban food tastings that are equivalent to a full lunch.
  • The best mojito in town! Freshly squeezed guarapo juice, Cuban coffee, and water.
  • A Cigar factory tour, Domino Park, Callejon art gallery, Cuban Memorial Blvd.
  • Each food you will taste will be accompanied by a fascinating cultural narrative.
  • The perfect combination of friendliness and insight from a top culinary and cultural expert

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.

    The Essence of a Neighborhood
    A great experience. Especially post-cruise. Our ship docked at 6 am on a Monday. We got to the hotel baby 11, left our bags and Uber'd to This wonderful tour by 12 am. I used a trekking pole as my ankle got hurt on the boat and had no issues keeping up. Robyn was great. She really gave us a feel for South Beach and its history, having actually grown up in the area. She was in a constant state of happiness, giving us a feeling of pleasure at just being there while being infused with knowledge and understanding. My wife is a vegetarian and great care was taken to make sure the food/drink we sampled was just as good and reflective of what the rest of us ate. I am sure that there are numerous books out there that will give you all the facts we learned, but who will interpret them from a real time perspective as a resident? And feed you. And let you enjoy the company of others of a similar mind? They try to keep the groups to 14 to keep it quite personal.

    Markita is the best
    We did an amazing tour with Markita in Little Havana and the food and the information she gave was absolutely great. It was nonstop for 2 and 1/2 hours and she gave us a true sense of the culture and wonderful food of the area. A total pleasure being with someone who LOVES WHAT SHE DOES!! Ask for her tour and you will not be disappointed!!

    Good food with the history of South Beach
    Helena did a great job of making this experience entertaining and educational. We learned a lot more about architecture and the history of South Beach than I expected for a food tour. The food and drinks at each stop were delicious and it was a fun addition to our trip.

    Time well spent in Miami!
    I was visiting Miami with my adult daughters. All four of us loved this tour. Helena was our tour guide. She was amazing! We so enjoyed all the places we visited and the food we ate. And enjoyed hearing the stories Helena told of the founders of South Beach and various other stories of Miami’s evolution over the years. Would definitely recommend this tour!

    Great Food tour in Little Havana
    Maribella was an experienced tour guide originally from Havana who had a bachelors degree from Havana in both history and tourism! She made the experience a tour to remember! We learned all about Cuba, Havana, little Havana and the inhabitants that have settled their, their past times, culture, food and drink and we happened to be lucky enough to see the grandmother of little Havana who pressed fresh made Gua apple juice made with fresh crushed sugar cane from outside of Miami! She was 83 and all I can say is I hope I look that good at 83!

    Professionalism at its finest!
    Ria, our food and cultural history guide/teacher was extraordinarily passionate about her work! I learned so many interesting things from her. The pace of her presentation was phenomenal and the food that we (I was in a party of 13 people) sampled was incredibly delicious! I highly recommend experiencing this tour!

    Helena, our host, on this tour did a fantastic job explaining the history and culture of Miami and South Beach. The Latin eater
    Helena, our host on this tour did a fantastic job of setting us up with great Latin eateries in Miami, South Beach along with explaining the history and culture of the area. I highly recommend this tour as an introduction to Miami Beach if you never visited before and ask for Helena

    Great Experience for Food and History of South Beach
    This is a food and cultural tour I would recommend to anyone visiting South Beach. Our tour guide, Helena, was absolutely wonderful and provided a detailed history of South Beach and its art deco buildings besides taking us to enjoy some of the local cuisine. We stopped and enjoyed the different flavors at 4 locations, each very unique to their cultures. Because of this experience, we plan on another Miami Culinary Tour in Little Havana on our next visit here.

    Great South Beach Food Tour
    Ria was our guide and she was fabulous. The food was all really good and the information on the architecture was so very interesting. You can tell she is a local! I would recommend this to anyone who wants a fun day, knowledge of the history of the area and really great food.

My partner and I had the best time during the tour with Jasmine. We only had a day to spend in Miami and wanted to learn as much as possible about Little Havana —we're glad we chose to do this! The food, drinks, and snacks were delicious! Be sure to go hungry!

Jasmine also gave us many great recommendations of things to do in Miami during our short stay.

The Little Havana Food Tour was excellent! Ria was our guide and we had a blast. Ria knew her food and her history. We came as a family of six and she was so kind to my kids. Everything we saw and ate was great! We couldn't decide what we liked best. The sandwich, the empanadas, the guava Cuban donut (don't reminder the name), and the sugar cane water were all very tasty. Go on this tour and come hungry!

A great experience. Especially during a cruise visit to Miami. Our plane was scheduled to fly out at 5:30 pm, so we booked the tour at 11:30 am, left our bags at the hotel and Uber'd to this wonderful tour. (Disclaimer - We used this company for a South Beach tour the day our boat docked, it was so good, we did this tour two days later)

I used a trekking pole as my ankle got hurt on the boat and had no issues keeping up.

Martica was great. She really gave us a feel for growing up in Little Havana and its (and her family's) history. She was in a constant state of happiness, giving us a feeling of pleasure at just being there while being infused with knowledge and understanding.

My wife is a vegetarian and great care was taken to make sure the food/drink we sampled was just as good and reflective of what the rest of us ate.

I am sure that there are numerous books out there that will give you all the facts we learned, but who will interpret them from a real time perspective as a resident?

And feed you.

And let you enjoy the company of others of a similar mind? They try to keep the groups to 14 to keep it quite personal.
