What to Expect
Experience the small-town and big city atmosphere of Havana on a full-day tour from Varadero. Stroll the historic streets of Vieja Habana, and taste local rums at the Havana Club Rum Museum.
Following a pick-up from your hotel in Varadero, transfer to Havana and go to the Fábrica de Tabacos Partagás, one of Cuba’s oldest and largest cigar factories. Founded in 1845, the factory will seduce you with the rich smell of tobacco as you cross the factory threshold. Learn how it produces 12 brands of Habanos, including Cohiba, Monte Cristo, Romeo y Julieta, Bolívar, and Partagás. Purchase famous brand names in the gift shop, and go to the smokers’ lounge and walk-in humidor at the back of the shop.
Then, explore the metropolitan and modern influences in Havana on a panoramic tour that shows you the city's most interesting places, such as the former Presidential Palace, Central Park, Revolution Square, the University of Havana, National Capitol, and Floridita Bar (birthplace of the daiquiri).
After lunch at a local restaurant, visit the Havana Club Rum Museum to learn how Cuban rum is made and for a special rum tasting. Next, stroll through Old Havana to see sights such as the asymmetrical Catedral de San Cristóbal de la Habana on Plaza de la Catedral, the Plaza San Francisco de Asis, and a former haunt of Ernest Hemingway at the Hotel Ambos Mundos. See the famous La Bodeguita del Medio restaurant, and enjoy some free time at leisure before the transfer back to your hotel in Varadero.
