What my clients say.
This was by far one of the best tours I have ever been on.
Although I have been familiar with Calle Ocho and Little Havana for a couple decades, Corinna was able to provide a great deal of new information that would be available only to a resident and someone who lived with the local culture daily. She did so in a way that was not only interesting and vivacious, but was able to explain things to participants at a variety of different levels. And it was clear that she was liked and respected in the neighborhood.

Corinna sees the forest, and each tree at the same time.
Group synthesis activities are very challenging. You need someone who can communicate to the group and to each individual, in multiple modalities.Corinna has a deep, intuitive sense about different learning styles, interpersonal reactions to group activities, and creating space for individual co-learning and expression. She can communicate complex material in a form that everyone understands: via word, image, sound, motion, and silence.
It was truly uplifting, connecting, energizing and transformative.

This was one of my favorite parts of our trip.
Corinna obviously knows the locals and businesses. She was stopped along the way for hugs and conversation. I knew nothing of this area and learned so much.
Our party of six had a delightful walking tour with Corinna.
She took us into layers of history and culture, unwrapping past interactions and motives, but then linking it all to current trends in Little Havana. Her enthusiasm and knowledge were balanced with our interests and perspectives to make it a lasting experience.
“An individual who is truly connected to the heart of Miami.”
I was introduced to Corinna through a mutual business associate who described her as “an individual who is truly connected to the heart of Miami.” He wasn’t kidding. As a recent transplant to Miami I’ve started to make my connections in this city which includes getting to know the incredibly unique and vibrant neighborhoods here.
With that in mind we hired Corinna to take us on a personalized tour of Little Havana, and what a pleasure that was!
My husband and I have been able to indulge in a great deal of travel and in those travels we’ve met some amazing tour guides. These are people who live and breathe the essence of their cities and neighborhoods. Corinna is such an individual.
She has been meticulous in her study and understanding of one of my Miami’s most storied neighborhoods. Not only does she “walk the beat” as a resident of Little Havana, she has also researched the complex and fascinating history of the neighborhood including the blend of multiple cultures and races as well as the socio-economic forces behind it.
By research I mean that she’s literally done the research through the eyes of an academic.
With Corinna you’re not only gaining access to a passionate resident you’re also learning about the neighborhood from an academic who approaches her subject of study meticulously without cutting corners.
Let’s just say you are getting your investment back threefold on a tour with her because she brings her skill sets as a Cultural Anthropologist and Author to her craft of tour guide.
So if you have ever been curious about Little Havana, which if you are new or old resident of Miami you absolutely should be curious about this gem of a community, or if you are just visiting, Corinna is your best bet to truly understand the heartbeat of this community. Highly, highly recommend her tours! She’s also charming and engaging, making her Little Havana tour experience a special treat.

She has invigorated me in a profound way!
I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Moebius’s workshop very much. She has inspired me to go back to my community and impact change.
It was quickly event that for Corinna, conducting the tour of Calle Ocho is a labor of love.
Her enthusiasm for this neighborhood is infectious. Her knowledge of the history of this area and its many peoples is extensive.
The shops and restaurants we visited really helped convey the flavor, both figuratively and literally, of this important constituent of the Miami culture. In observing her interactions, the warmth of the ‘locals’ and the neighborhood came through loud and clear.
I have a feeling that I will be returning to Little Havana regularly to dip more into this multicultural stew. Truly a great way to spend an afternoon!
"One of the highlights of our Florida trip."
You have fascinated our group with your great charm, your wealth of knowledge and your exciting stories about Little Havana and Miami. We were really impressed! Thanks to your insider stories and deep insight into the Cuban community our stay in Little Havana was one of the highlights of our Florida trip.

"One of the highlights of the conference"
We would sincerely like to thank you for your expertise and time during the Saturday afternoon Reporting Opportunity as part of our Covering Immigration symposium in Miami. The remarks and insights that you provided during our Little Havana tour were highly valuable. Participants have expressed to us that the Reporting Opportunity was one of the highlights of the conference for them—your time and preparation truly made the afternoon a success. Your vibrancy, honesty and flexibility (professionally handling a poorly-timed Miami downpour!) really shaped the experience and maximized the utility of the visit for the participants.
What makes a walking tour is the guide and Corinna is definitely terrific …
I can honestly say (that of all things we did on both vacation) this was my favorite thing.

This was a SUPER informative tour!
I was a solo traveler and Corinna offered a personalized tour of Little Havana.
She tailored the tour to my interests and it was great to have her get “deep” with the information and history.
I read her book before my trip and the tour made the information come alive!
Corinna’s easy-going manner made it seem like I was meeting an old friend as we visited local businesses, checked-out art galleries, met members of the community, and of course, had coffee.
If you’re interested in booking a tour with Corinna and want to learn more about the area, read this NY Times article. I highly recommend her tour!
(Redwood City, California)
Corinna had boundless energy and was incredibly knowledgeable about every topic.
Walking through Little Havana, Corinna would exchange greetings with passersby and it was clear that she is a beloved member of this community.
All the participants in our program really enjoyed getting to see this legendary neighborhood up close. I highly recommend Corinna.

My wife and I learned about this tour through a recent newspaper article fortuitously just prior to our planned winter vacation to Miami.
Corinna provided us with a thoroughly insightful and personalized tour of Little Havana, a reflection of her deep interest and involvement in the local community.
Our experience and appreciation of the local Cuban and Latino culture was enhanced by her knowledgeable comments.
We would highly recommend her tour to first time visitors seeking to receive a distinct flavor of this community.
What locals say …
I wanted to say thank you for all the effort you have done in order to bring some real work to this community.
Our communities need more people like you.

In a word, the BEST.
Corinna Moebius is one of the most knowledgeable and ardent crusaders for Little Havana. Her passion for the district, its people, its attractions, the food, music and culture make her tours the most informative, accurate and interesting you will find.
A hearty endorsement!
Corinna, thank you for a marvelous tour yesterday!!!
We all had a wonderful time. Within minutes of the start of the tour, I had three people tell me how fantastic you were. My family and friends really appreciated the fascinating information you shared with us, from the history of Cuba to the Cuban-American culture, to the history of the businesses along 8th Street.
Thank you for introducing a piece of my hometown to so many close family and friends of mine, even the ones that live in Miami!
Corinna, I just wanted to thank u again for the tour of Little Havana — I enjoyed it thoroughly.
You taught me things about my hometown that I never knew.
Corinna has a unique ability to teach you (and make you fall in love with) the traditions and cultural insights of this colorful neighborhood.
I have recommended her twice to large groups of clients and they were very pleased.
