I'm a local tour guide for 6+ years in Miami, creating food tours, cultural and architecture tours. The Miami melting pot still fascinates me every day, with all the diversity of food and cultures available to explore. The authentic Miami experience. Not every tour is really representing you the Real-Deal in Miami. My tours are known for having a small group experience and learning the real local facts and stories. I work on finding all the best local and family-owned restaurants that shaped the local food scene and combine it with Cuban-American cultural insights and habits.
Full lunch divided into 5-6 restaurant tastings of Cuban and other communities that live in Little Havana. Please come hungry
Non-alcoholic refreshments like juices and coffee tastings will be provided. Alcohol or Cigars are available for purchase
