What you'll do

We would start with a History walk around Old Havana. Is important to know the history of the city to understand it´s culture and society. Then i´ll take you into the neighborhoods to show you first hand local life. I´ll answer any question you have about what you see around us the best i can. We will discuss myths and realities about Cuba and it´s people according to my knowledge. On our way we can stop and try some local cuisine: street food, home made food from a small family owned diner or in a nice restaurant, your choice. At the end we will take a photo together that i´ll be most delighted to send you. Please keep in mind that the experience is offered in Spanish and English. There´s a chance that i might have to speak both languages during the tour.

Chaneti

I'm born and raised in Cuba. I´ve lived in Havana since i can remember and i love my city, it´s history, it´s people. I'm honored to receive travelers that could have chosen other destination for their vacations and still came to my Havana. I want to show you this place in and out. You´ll get to know it through the eyes of a Cuban, not for what others may say. I have 3 years of experience doing tours. I´ve found joy doing it, which was my reason to create an AirB&B experience. You´ll be in good hands. Follow me on Instagram as @walkwithchacha to get a better idea of what i mean.
