What people are saying about Little Havana

Overall rating

4.1 / 5

based on 3,870 reviews

It was really an incredible experience. There were 9 different foods offered-empanadas, Cuban coffee, Cuban sandwich with mojito, 3 different pastries, Cuban fresh pressed sugar water, and churros. If you had certain meat dietary restrictions they accommodated with different meats or veggies for the empanadas or sandwich. For gluten free, they gave cassava fries instead of empanada, fried plantains instead of sandwich, and they did have one GF cassava flour pastry. The other pastries and churros were not substituted. I will say the experience was worth it even if you have to Skip a food. We also visited a cigar shop and heard a lot of history about Little Havana. The one thing I would adjust is to make it longer. 2 hours felt rushed. There was SO much food it was too much. And as soon as you’re done, you’re walking. There is no time to sit and enjoy and digest. 15 minutes to scarf a Cuban sandwich and mojito is not enough.

Such a well-run operation. Everything was perfect from the open bus tour to the boat excursion. Would highly recommend booking through GYG too as it was considerably cheaper than buying tickets direct.

The tour was excellent. Our tour guide Mariela was very nice and knowledgeable. The food was very good as well. I would do this tour again and would recommend it to anyone visiting Miami.

Aimee is knowlegable, friendly, engaging and down-to-earth. This gave us a good overview of Little Havana and options to explore on our own.

This is a MUST DO! The food, and tour guide Ariel were awesome! Come hungry!
