Not to be missed! - Angel was a great tour guide, and we learned a lot of Little Havana, Miami, and US history during our tour while getting to taste some awesome food. Definitely a more intimate and personal tour than some of the other tours we saw that day! Don't miss this one for an authentic take on Little Havana!

Big Day in Little Havana! - Our time with Angel our tour guide was fantastic and really exceeded our expectations. He starts the tour in the local neighbourhood and seems to know everyone which adds a uniqueness to the visit. Angel has a wealth of knowledge about little Havana and Cuba. He didn’t rush us and always made himself available to answer questions. We would not hesitate recommending his tour and we look forward to our next visit to Little Havana.

Authentic and unique Cuban experience with Angel - This private tour was outstanding. Angel is a knowledgeable Cuban American native of Little Havana who made sure we went beyond the typical generic Calle 8 group tour. He was committed to making sure that in addition to enjoying excellent Cuban food and drink, that we'd learn about the local culture and the history of Cubans in Miami. My brother has lived in Miami for decades and joined our visiting family, and he learned, saw, and ate things he's never experienced before. Highly recommended!!

Excellent In-Depth Tour of Little Havana! - We did have a small hiccup in the beginning of the tour, so I called the phone number directly on the voucher and Angel answered. He was not sure why no one came for us, so he said he would call us back. He did, and Viatour did not let us know his company actually cancelled the tour. So he came down to the meeting spot and gave the tour to us himself!! Angel was an excellent tour guide! He knows Little Havana like the back of his hand and he introduced us to many of the shop owners there. We got to try some delicious food, learn history of Cuba, and see cigars being hand rolled right there where they are sold. We got to meet some of the talented artists in the art galleries. The Bay of Pigs Museum was very interesting too. If you only have 1 day or a limited amount of time in a Miami and want to see something new, this tour is an excellent choice!

Noone showed up - They never showed up. Based on the other reviews, please take this tour down from this site. I don't want other people to go thru that. Super inconvenient.

Better communication - We showed up to the meeting location, no one was there. We called the number and was informed trip canceled. No phone message nor text but a email was sent. (As if one checks email on vacation). Had to pay for Uber to and from and no tour. Was told it was the weather and wasn’t a cloud in the sky all night. Very disappointing.

Tour Guide Didn’t Show Up! - We were very disappointed. No one showed up to conduct the tour! We arrived early and waited 30 minutes. The pickup point is at a neighborhood bakery which wasn’t what we expected. I would not recommend this tour. We did get a full refund, but the time we wasted cannot be recouped.
