    Really good food for a foodie!!!
    Shanta_K, Mar 2024
    Enjoyed the entire tour; however, seemed disjointed. We went passed some spots only to have to walk back to them. A bit strenous for some. Helena did they best she could to make it a wonderful time for all. Looking forward to booking more food tours now.
    Lots to learn about Little Havana
