Tour Details

Declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site in 1982, there is no better way to experience the grandeur and history of Old Havana than walking through the many plazas and experiencing up close the many cathedrals, museums and residences.

This glorious island became stuck in time in the 1950s with the rise of Fidel Castro. The smell of sea water, colorful buildings, and old cars give this city a character like no other place in the world. Simply put, Havana is one of the most beautiful cities, with friendly people, and tireless energy.

Havana, or what is considered Old Havana today, was founded in 1519 by the Spanish. By the 17th century, it had become one of the Caribbean's main centers for ship-building. Although it is today a sprawling metropolis of more than 2 million people, its old center retains an interesting mix of Baroque and neoclassical monuments, and a homogenous collection of private houses with arcades, balconies, wrought-iron gates and internal courtyards.

During the tour, you will explore Old Havana, walking down popular streets and checking out the street art and architecture with opportunities to buy local handicrafts. Stop by La Bodeguita del Medio for a mojito and see some of the main sights including, Cathedral Square, Plaza de Armas Square, Old Square and finish in the San Francisco Square (in front of the Cruise Terminal).

Enjoy a lunch stop at a private restaurant (Paladar) before you end the day walking back to your ship and the port area.

5 StarsAwesome TourJuly 25, 2017

Reviewer: Dana
My mom took my 3 sisters and I on a cruise. We booked this tour based on price. We thought we would go for a cab ride after, but there was not enough time. Time is the only negative thing about this excursion as we wish we could have gone for a ride along the coast. Our tour guide was very forth coming with information about the life of a Cuban. We really enjoyed her personal touch to the trip. The group was super small. It was just the 5 of us plus one other cruiser. We saw other tours that had like 20 people that must have stunk. I would do this tour again.

5 StarsLong but interestingJune 28, 2017

Reviewer: Sara
Given the newness of American tourists in Cuba, this was an awesome tour. It turned into 6 hours, but at least an hour was devoted to the government run cigar shop and perfume shop (locally made). Our tour guide was an university professor who spoke four languages. The group was fun, we had a delicious lunch, and I would recommend this tour.

Reviewer: H gannon
The tour was great the tour guide was knowledgeable and very good at dealing with many question inquiries and concerns the group had. The tour is not really structured we felt like we were walking around aimlessly for a bit. Be prepared lots of walking in uneven payments and heat

Reviewer: Mildred Cummings
The Walking Tour of Old Havana was fantastic. Our guide (Alain) was extremely knowledgeable. For his full time job he is an English teacher so there was no language barrier. Fortunately, we had a small group so we had time to enjoy everything and have one on one conversations with our guide. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We would go again.

5 StarsA trip back in time........May 26, 2017

Reviewer: Allen Levy
An excellent excursion. The group was small and our guide provided us with an in depth knowledge of the area. The tour was a true excellent value and ALL enjoyed the personal touch of a local individual guide.
