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 a local, knowledgeable guide. Restoration is occurring slowly, so while many of the main buildings are excellently restored to their original glory, others have taken on their own look by being left to age naturally. Walk your way through an old part of Central Havana and then to the heart of Old Havana. Along the way you'll get to take in some of the city's most iconic sights such as the Capitolio, Gran Teatro, Parque Central, Bacardi building, Art Museum, Calle Obispo, Plaza de Armas, Plaza de la Catedral, Plaza San Francisco de Asis, Plaza Vieja and Hotel Ambos Mundos.

You will also enjoy a delicious local Havana lunch in a cafe or restaurant in one of the Old Havana Plazas, and finish the tour with a refreshing cool drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) in one of Old Havana's most famous watering holes.

Reviewer: BETH SUSI
Our tour guide was lovely and very informative. The group was about 15 people. The streets are old, so wear appropriate footwear. It is also VERY hot, and there is very little street cover or shade. It was about 2.5 hours of walking. Lunch was great. Very enjoyable and well worth it.

Dayana was an excellent tour guide, extremely professional and knowledgeable of all things. We were lucky to have her since my father is more comfortable speaking Spanish, she was very accomodating in this sense. The tour was great and lunch was truly delicious. If I return to Cuba I will definitely repeat this experience.

Dayanamaria was an excellent guide. Spent time explaining and answering questions. She also showed us places to buy cigars, rum and coffee. The lobster meal that was a part of the package was very good.
