Excellent walking tour of Little Havana - Excellent walking tour of Little Havana. Luis falcon was a terrific guide. Lots of history about Cuba and Little Havana. We saw hand rolling of cigars, tasted delicious Cuban coffee, pastries and croquettes. Louis is very engaging. And he introduced us to a number of restaurants and bars that we might want to visit later. Highly recommend this tour.

Great Tour - Luis was our guide, and was a wonderful tour guide. He gave us lots of information, but not too much. He took us to great family run shops where we received a little treat at quite a few. That was fun as well as, learning the history and background of the shop or the items we were tasting.

Fabulous tour with Jennifer - My husband and I did a private tour of Little Havana with Jennifer. I can't recommend her and this tour highly enough. She was a wealth of knowledge about Cuba, its people and little Havana, keeping us totally engaged. Her enthusiasm really brought the tour to life. As we walked the street, each vendor gave her a lovely greeting and we were warmly welcomed into their establishments. We ate delicious food, shared fabulous Cuban coffee, bought hand rolled cigars and listened to great Cuban music. She is so informative and was a delight to be with. I will do other tours with them in Miami provided I get Jennifer again!
