Welcome to the Little Havana Cultural Walking & Food Tour

Little Havana Tour Calle Ocho Miami Tours


The Little Havana Cultural Walking & Food Tour
Go beyond the touristy glossy surface and delve into the political, religious and social customs with significant influence and transformation of a major city.  Take a regular or private tour with a reputable guide through one of Miami's oldest neighborhoods where waves of Cuban refugees changed the landscape every decade. Immerse in the culture like a local and expand your knowledge and heighten your senses with sights, sounds, taste, aroma and touch that make this a memorable tour.

This cultural tour* winds you through a humble but lively neighborhood, a kaleidoscope of culture, traditional customs, and vivid colors. Amble down memorial boulevard for an introduction of the history of Cuban migration and Bay of Pigs. Continue down famed "Calle 8" (or 8th street) to admire original artwork hidden for years; meet locals and witness golden exiles play and compete in dominoes at Domino Parkwatch cigar rollers follow a decades-old technique to create the finest cigars; sample freshly pressed tropical fruit juice from a  local farmer's market, enjoy a classic Cuban sandwich; sip freshly brewed Cuban coffee and savor a hot, homemade, sit down meal at a family restaurant. Plenty of food. Basta!

***WHAT SETS US APART***


SMALL GROUPS
Enjoy this boutique service, where you receive personal attention in a small group setting. "The Business Class of Tours". We do not take more than 10 people on our daily public tour and even less people in the summer and fall. Little Havana establishments have tiny interiors and therefore you are not pressing against strangers as you move around.  We do offer private tours for larger groups.

AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE, ENJOY FOOD SITTING DOWN, NOT STANDING
We are the only food tour that sits down to enjoy a hot, traditional meal. Other tours are Stop-eat while standing-walk and repeat. While you do enjoy some typical finger foods along the way in the first two hours, we save the best for last. For the grand finale, you will enjoy a savory, traditional hot meal while sitting comfortably in air condition restaurant. 

COOLER, MORE COMFORTABLE
A 10am start time is ideal, a cooler time.  Also establishments are not as packed as after 12pm when big tours roll in with 20-100 people. Our goal is comfort and personal space and attention. 

FEEL LIKE A LOCAL, NOT A STRANGER
Your guide will interact with you for comfortable conversation r
ather than a one-way communication through loud microphone . You're not simply looking and hearing but immersing in the culture as shared above.

EXPERTISE & EXCELLENCE
Your expert guides have decades of first hand knowledge, experience and research. They are passionate about their work. Not only do they research the history and current events and host the tours, they live it everyday. The Dream Team of guides includes a native Miamian born and raised in the neighborhood. A cultural anthropologist specializing in Little Havana. A retired local businessman who can shed light on business trends and real estate. The owner herself who has worked in the international arena for 30 years and managed events. These are the only Little Havana tour guides to live in the area,  are fully bilingual, and dedicated to this job only. 

GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
Volunteerism is at the core of our business.  Our guides do not volunteer once a year, or once a month but on a weekly basis. From assisting the elderly, small businesses, LGBQT and homeless pets, our commitment to helping our community is part our daily life.   


BEST VALUE
The founder's goal was to offer an enlightening but fun tour with personalized attention at an affordable rate for all to enjoy.  Mission accomplished!  Little Havana Walking Tour was voted Best Value for a walking and food tour.  Like getting business class service for a premium economy rate.
