I spent a lovely afternoon on the Little Havana + Wynwood combo tour with Dayana. There were 3 other people for the Little Havana tour, and then 2 others joined us in Wynwood for a combined group of 6 plus Dayana, so I really enjoyed the small group size and the fact that Dayana (a Cuban native) was able to answer all of our questions. The sights we saw were great, and the food and drinks were delicious. Normally I don't love that on food tours you only get to taste little bites (they'll order something and cut it in 3 or 4 pieces) but in this case it turned out to be the right amount of food; I didn't go hungry or feel the need to order something extra. My only criticism would be that it would've been nice to get a full cup of coffee at the bakery café in Little Havana; we were only given a thimbleful to taste. Also, everyone seems to rave about the ice cream shop on the main strip, and I would've loved to make a stop there, even if we had to pay for our own ice cream.
I didn't mind this since I had all day, but just as an FYI for anyone else considering booking one or both of these tours, the timing of the tours did seem a bit off. The Little Havana tour was supposed to be from 11am-1pm and Wynwood from 2-4pm, but we didn't leave Little Havana until 2pm, arriving around 2:30pm, and finished up there around 5. Dayana said this was not uncommon, so it seems like Urban Adventures should update the times on their site. Again, I didn't mind and no one else in our group was in a rush either, and I appreciated that we were able to relax and take our time rather than rushing from stop to stop, but for anyone booking these tours who is on a tight schedule, be aware that this could happen!

Loved the tour- it exceeded my expectations- Simon was a wealth of information and he was a very likeable person. I had many questions and he was so willing to answer them-
I Liked going off the beaten path and gaining local info about the districts visited. Felt I was introduced to Poznan by someone with great local knowledge.
The food was great and the schnaps and vodka tasted were excelllent. Very good choice Simon-
I would not hesitate recommending this trip- wish I had done the day one as well

There was a lot more riding in the hectic Hanoi traffic and would have enjoyed more on the island in the Red River. However our guide was excellent and took great care for our safety taking us to some interesting spots and explaining the local culture at each stop. I highly recommend Urban Adventures and always use them when I arrive in a strange city, Easy to book and reasonably priced.

I wish there was an "excellent" choice to select. Barkha was an outstanding guide , full of knowledge. Very gracious and with a great sense of humor. She says she loves her job and it shows! She was also my guide on the next adventure I booked--same high marks.

We booked the Private Bites tour but it was cancelled just before we arrived and so we were offered a different tour. We did a group Pura Vida tour. Carolina was excellent. She was helpful, kind, warm, and informative. I enjoyed the fact that this tour was a little off the beaten path. I would probably have enjoyed a bit more history and also time in the market, but overall, this was a delightful tour and a wonderful introduction to San Jose.
