What you'll do

"Free tour" is a popular concept where guests tip the guide at the end if they liked the activity, so you can enjoy the journey and then decide how much it would be fair to pay. Thanks in advance :)

We will guide you through the most popular area of our city, the Old Town. You'll get to visit the best landmarks in this zone, that's the best way to have an introduction to Havana's culture and history. The area is special to teach you about many topics travelers usually ask for. This tour deals with CULTURE, ARCHITECTURE, ECONOMY, HISTORY, RELIGION, and ART.

Each topic will be closely related to the next one, so this is a unique opportunity to learn about everything mixing everything. We will introduce you to the Cuban reality in a very peculiar manner that you can't imagine. At the end, you'll get to know the most important places in the Old Town. Also, we'll answer any questions you might have, and also recommend restaurants, places to visit, and the best local agency to book taxis.

We understand many travelers love to know as many details as possible about what's going to happen during the activity. However, we prefer to surprise you with the itinerary and their details. Just try it, it's FREE!

Hi, we're Daniel and Fernando, two students from the University of Havana. We started working as tour guides in our free time to help with the economy at home. We love sharing our knowledge about the city with new people and make friends from all around the world, and a FREE tour is the best way to make it work. We aim to give you a short introduction to the best landmarks in the Old Town, so we decided to start this tour, where you can tip us based on how did you feel during the activity.

This experience was TERRIBLE!!!!! The host informed the taxi driver to leave once we arrived at the restaurant to eat some food which was not on the brochure. We were picked up at the hotel and expected to return back to the hotel. Instead, we were ABANDONED in the middle of nowhere and did not know how to get back. Honestly, this was the worst trip of all. We took 5 tours and each host ensured our safe return back to the hotel. We were willing to pay extra for the driver to wait for us or she could have arranged foe a taxi for us. Instead, we had to fend for ourselves. We all got physically sick by this experience because our blood pressure went up at the disgust we felt. This 3experience will never happen again.

I was very excited when I book this trip with Laura . This was ours third trip to Havana so we already done and learn most of the touristy things and bit more , but this tour experience caught my eye because is lead by lady professor from university so I expecting learn even more , but trip had that touristy feel to it . However Laura speaks excellent English and that was an opportunity to ask questions about other aspects of live in Havana. Meal on the end of the trip was very good . We paid for extra person to get picked up from our location which was very overpriced as we not get drop off as well ,which was disappointing because it started raining hard and we struggled to catch another taxi,we have to walk to some hotel location to get one but it only cost 10cuc .....so overall trip with Laura is good if you visiting Havana for a first time ,also in her trip description she is writing that if you want to see some specific things let her know , so probably I could tailored that to our need but this was booked in last minute and I run out of time to communicate...

Laura is passionate about history and putting the items we saw in the right context. I enjoy that type of description of history. It was appreciated. I had an enjoyable experience.

Laura has so much knowledge of Cuban history and brings a unique perspective to the tour. She knew the history of every building or monument we encountered and helped put into perspective the various influences that make Cuba what it is today. If you are looking for a true historical lesson that was also fun and engaging this is it!
