Cuba's Classic Cars
Experience Havana, an old city that time seems to have forgotten, where almost 80 percent of the city remains original from the Colonial period until the Communist Revolution in 1959. Every detail seems to be surrealist for people who visit for the first time and there is no better way to discover her secrets than from a ride in an old American Classic car.
Your panoramic tour begins when you jump into your car with your driver and cruise through the streets of Havana, making your way through the suburbs of Centro Habana and Miramar. Ride down Paseo del Prado, the dividing line between Centro Habana and Old Havana. View the Malecon, a broad esplanade that is the road along the seawall which stretches for 5 miles along the coast in Havana from the mouth of the harbor to the north side of Centro Habana, ending in the Vedado neighborhood.
New businesses are appearing on the esplanade due to economic reforms in Cuba that now allow Cubans to own private businesses. View the La Chorrera Fort, Fifth Avenue Tunnel and the Green House as well as the American "Special Interests" building, the Anti-Imperialist Square, and Colon Cemetery. Stop at Revolution Square, where you will be met by your English-speaking guide, who will tell you about Cuba's history as you take in the sights.
And there is no better way to end this tour except on a high note when you make a stop at the Hotel Nacional, where your guide will join you again for an authentic cocktail. Walk through the beautiful garden terrace of the hotel and enjoy your drink overlooking the Malecon at sunset.
Please Note: Each car will hold up to 4 guests in total along with a driver and separate English-speaking guide. Guests booking as a single or couples may be combined with other guests in each car. Cars may be hard top or convertible.
All guests must complete a mandatory form for the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury (OFAC). A valid passport is required for all guests to travel to Cuba. We recommend guests review the passport requirements of travel to Cuba from their home country and that the expiration of your passport be greater than six months from the date of your voyage. A link will be provided to you with the form upon booking your excursion, and full details will be provided with your electronic ticket.

This was a great tour. We drove around Havana in a 1950 Pink Oldsmobile convertible. We also booked a 3 1/2 Walking tour for the next day & was fortunate to have the same tour guide Luis Leal. He was great & his English was excellent. The Classic Cars tour took us to all the important parts of Havana stopping at several places. The tour included a drink at the Hotel Nacional. I highly recommend this & ask for Luis. We were on a cruise & the cost of this tour was much less expensive than what the cruise ship was offering. Also tours were OFAC compliant.

Had a great time with this tour. The driver was very friendly and informative and flexible. There were some areas that we didn't care for, but overall the tour was excellent and the places we were taken to, where a decent representation of Havana.
I always wanted to ride in a classic car in Havana and I was thrilled with the opportunity. Both cars that we rode in were convertibles for the open-air experience that we wanted. Three stops included a gathering of cars to photograph. Our drivers were friendly and our tour guide was knowledgeable of the city.
