Full description
This Havana tour won’t just show you the best of Old Havana, it’ll show you the best of Old Havana from a local perspective. Your local English-speaking guide will take you through the streets of one of the oldest cities in the Western Hemisphere. You’ll discover the enchanting secrets of this living museum where residents live amongst the unique charm and haunting decay of buildings dating as far back as the 16th century. Havana is the largest city in the Caribbean and was designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1982. 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, virtually neglected since the Revolution triumphed more than 50 years ago. This Old Havana walking tour will work its way through an old part of Central Havana and then through 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 Art Museum, Calle Obispo, Plaza de Armas, Plaza de la Catedral, Plaza San Francisco de Asis, Plaza Vieja and the Hotel Ambos Mundos. Your Havana adventure will end with a delicious local Havana lunch in a café or restaurant and a refreshing cool drink in one of Old Havana’s most famous watering holes.

We had a lovely guided tour in Old Havana. Our guide was very informed and gave us lots of historical facts and fun facts about Old Habana. We were six people, and it turned out to be a private tour which was a bonus. The place we stopped for lunch was lovely, and it felt a bit more authentic than a lot of the other restaurants we visited during our week in Havana. This tour gave us a much better insight to Old Havana, but also a glimpse into the life of the people living there. Highly recommend

We were more than pleased with her services and have already referred her to several friends that will be traveling to Cuba in the coming months. Margerita is definitely a valuable team member and is awesome at what she does!

Lewis was very informative and passionate about Havana and gave us great insights into its culture and history. Lunch was included and meal and especially the pina colada was one of the best I have ever tasted. Fab way to get to see old Havana. This tour started at 12 noon - so just remember what they say about mad dogs and English men !!!! It’s hot hot hot .
