Danni is the best tour guide I’ve ever met in my life! Our tour wouldn’t haven been the same without him. He knows everyone and everything to do. It was the best thing we did on our trip to Miami. We had so much fun and all of the food/drinks were amazing. We couldn’t believe how much we got. This tour is a must for all!
A private tour with a Full Lunch!
Erin_E, Apr 2024
This was a Great Tour! Faruk was funny, kind and very knowledgeable! After starting late (totally our fault not knowing Miami Traffic) he recovered swiftly and got us started right away. It was like a private tour of Lil Havana since we were the only two on the tour and we left knowing so much more about the neighborhood and Cuba itself! The food was OUTSTANDING! My husband absolutely loved the Cuban Sandwich and I thought the empanadas were some of the best I have ever tasted! And all the portions were spectacular! We highly recommend this tour to locals and Miami visitors alike! Special thank you to Faruk! He made our afternoon memorable!
Great time!

We had a fantastic time! Danny the tour guide was very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the history and community about Little Havana. All the food we tried was excellent. After the tour we stopped by the bakery to get more to take home. This tour is a small setting which we liked.

HIGHLY recommend this tour
Isobel_W, Mar 2024
Danny was an EXCELLENT guide and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Danny only takes small groups which is really important otherwise you just trail along. Danny selected delicious food and we were full by the end. He told us the history of the area as well and answered any questions - again easier with a small group. This was the highlight of our holiday so far
Great walking tour

My mother and I had a wonderful time learning about the community of Little Havana and about Cuban culture in general. Danny had great energy, a wealth of knowledge, and much connection to the locals as he toured us through Little Havana while eating some tasty food. Recommended this tour to history buffs and those who love to learn about where they are staying while snacking on local cuisine.
