    Meet your tour guide at the Bay of Pigs Memorial at 10am to begin this cultural walking tour through a humble but evolving neighborhood, boasting 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 for the mature resident. You'll find out which cigar JFK liked so much that he bought the entire national supply before passing the embargo. Enjoy a fun and informative walk through Little Havana. Sample some classic Cuban bites which may include a Cuban sandwich, fried plantains, roast pork, and Cuban coffee at a family restaurant. Your tour guide can answer any questions about the history, the food, the people, and the politics. Guides will gladly take your photos for your entire group so no one is left out. A savory pre-planned menu is selected. Coffee, sodas, and juices are not included but may be purchased on their own.

My mother and spent the morning with Ariel. We loved all of the Cuba history he gave us. All of the food was great. Our favorite was the Cuban sandwich at the end. Highly recommended!

Hello Alex, Thank you for sharing your experience on the Little Havana Cultural Walking and Food tour. Interesting to ask everyone's favorite food. Sometimes it is hard to choose as we do serve a great variety of finger food and hot dish. But we have answers all across the board. The buttery, coconut filled pastry, the freshly pressed tropical juice, the Cuban sandwich, the roasted pork, the boiled yuca in the "secret Cuban sauce"... We also now teach how to make Cuban coffee online. Including dance lessons. Salud! LittleHavanaWalkingTour

Hello Justin, Thank you for sharing your experience on the Little Havana Food & Cultural tour. We are thrilled the tour lived up to your expectations for culture and food and then some. Ariel is a native of Cuba with only 6 years in this country so he brings lots of knowledge as former tour guide in Cuba and now a popular tour guide in Little Havana. If you enjoy and food and drinks, be sure to try our Dark Riches Indulgence tour next time with dark chocolate, wine and coffee. Salud! Thank you! LittleHavanaWalkingTour

Christine was so entertaining and informative and the merchants were kind and welcoming. Food and drink were a big plus - loved my Mango Mojito at Old Havana. The glimpse into Cuban life and history was illuminated by the sublime Christine Michaels.

Thank you for sharing your experience on the Little Havana Tour. "Escapade" What a great analogy-- an ideal escape from the everyday where you can step back into time. Yes Christine is the perfect guide with her passion, her close ties with merchants and storytelling skills. She truly loves her job and we thank you for taking the time to learn about our history and culture. Happy Holidays!
