Little Havana Food and Walking tour

My wife and I visited Miami in late October and decided to take the Viator Little Havana Food and Walking tour. We have taken part in numerous Viator tours in multiple countries and once again we were equally impressed. Jennifer was an awsome guide, teacher, and host for her community and really helped us understand the Cuban heritage, history, food, and culture. We were able to try multiple foods and drinks and were impressed by all. She not only introduced us to multiple food restauratier owners but also artists and locals on the way. I would recommend this tour to all. Price is good, you get enough food for a good lunch, and as always have fun and learn so much. Thanks to Jennifer for bringing the area alive!!! You just miss so much if you walk through on your own. -- SF 10/23/20
