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.

Our guide, Suzie, was not only well informed about the tour information; but also about her country, it's history, it's people, and it's advantages. We had a great tour, lunch and mojitos included. My daughter did get a stomach virus when we returned home that the doctor said may have been from food she ate in Havana.

Reviewer: Yvonne Franklin
Arriving in Havana was a thrill in and of itself but I had no idea what an enjoyable day was ahead. Our guide introduced herself and gave us a brief overview of our tour. Winding through plazas, narrow streets, shopping districts, a hotel and a church we mingled among the people of Havana. As a total surprise, our guide made a lunch reservation at a roof-top restaurant for the entire group and said it was included with the cost of the tour. After lunch we walked along the Sea Wall and looked at the old cars on our way back to the ship. An unforgettable experience!
