Hello and thank you for sharing your experience on the Little Havana Cultural Walking & Food tour. So glad you enjoyed the food. One of the main differences between our tour and other similar tours is the fact that we are only tour to offer a sit down hot traditional meal. The goal is to offer that authentic experience and not just feed you finger food while stopping and standing. Yes the Domino Park and two bars were closed as places of mass gatherings are not permitted to reopen yet during the pandemic. But we know Christine could still speak to their history and role in the community. She is a wealth of knowledge. To continue your cultural enlightment, we do offer virtual experiences also to learn more about the culture such as proper cigar etiquette (the history of cigars, and how to properly cut, light, air, hold and smoke the cigar), how to prepare Cuban coffee and a cocktail with the coffee, or mojito and merengue dance lesson. It's for an hour online and really fun! Hope to reconnect. Saludos!
