Your private guide will talk you through the Tequestas and precolonial times, Miami in the 19th and 20th century, the Cuban revolution, Cuban-American History in South Florida, and the recent boom of our internationally recognized skyline.

Our Cuban Historic Tour is similar to our city tour but focuses solely on Cuban history during Colonial times up to modern times. Learn about Cuba's culture, politics, and how the pearl of the Antilles' history is more tied into the United states than you can imagine.
Our city tours include your guide and private driver for the whole duration of the trip to drive hourly/as directed, airport transfer and luggage storage if required.
During Pre-Colonial Times Miami was inhabited by the Tequesta Indians. The City got its name from Mayaimi which was a tribe near lake Okechobee. Miami was spelled like the tribe from Ohio by accident. In its early years it was known as "Biscayne Bay Country."
The First Permanent European Settlers arrived around 1800. Biscayne bay was populated heavily by squatters and treasure hunters during those times. By the late 1800s Henry Flagler built his railroad down to Miami. Miami was incorporated in 1896 with a population of 300 (Currently Miami-Dade County has 2.75 Million residents).
During the early 20th century Miami's development struggled due to the great depression and the "Great Miami Hurricane". After the first and second world war many soldiers that were stationed in Miami decided to stay. After the Cuban Revolution the population and development in Miami began to boom. The following Cuban exodus, "Mariel Boatlift", was also responsible for a large population boom. The boatlift wqas the largest civilian transport in history at the time (150,000 refugees).
Miami is now recognized for its developed skyline, luxurious amenities, cultural diversity and beaches.
