Many of the Cuban dishes are prepared from family recipes that have been handed down from one generation to another. All tastings are included and sum up to a large, full lunch.

Most memorable part was learning the history of Little Havana and Cuba. Martica, our tour guide was knowledgeable and pleasant. As a party of 6, they were able to carter to my non-pork, vegetarian, non-alcohol friend(s). Make sure you come with an empty stomach. From Empanadas to cuban coffee to authentic mojitos, Cuban sandwich, tostones, and the wonderful dessert at the bakery. You definitely get your moneys worth.

I went solo on this Little Havana Food & Walking Tour and had a lot of fun! Bethany, our guide, was very personable and knowledgeable about the Cuban culture/history. The food was delicious and the drinks were refreshing! Keep in mind, you are not receiving sample sizes of each food item; you’ll be receiving the full size. So, be sure to arrive on an empty stomach😋 There is lively music all around that’ll get you in a good mood. Highly recommend this tour!
