The tour itself was good and the lunch place was good. The tour guide, Alejandro(?) is quite lively and informative. We were told that pick up was at 7:45. But by the time they got to us it was more like 8:40. Just know that it does take time to go through and pick everyone up.

This is a great excursion. The history and architecture of Havana is amazing. Our guide, Ruben, shared so many great stories and I learned so much about Cuban culture. He was also very funny. The tour was very well organized while still allowing us time to explore a bit on our own. The Cuban people we met were very friendly and we always felt safe. A complete stranger overheard me ask a question to my son and just stopped to chat with us and answered everything we asked. The lunch provided was good and well organized allowing us to quickly get back to seeing the sights. If you’ve never been to Havana this tour is a must do. Walking through a 500 year old city with this much history is really special.

Beautiful city where the contrast (old-recent) is omnipresent

The tour is well organized by cons the guide that we had a certain Fidel was too focused in his comments on political language, he kept saying that Fidel Castro is the best leader, that Cuba belongs to the Cubans, that they don't want interference from strangers, etc. it was dizzying and tiring. I didn't learn much about Havana at the end of the day. The meal included was quite simple, salad without dressing, bland main course.
