What you'll do

We will start where Havana was founded, and stride through old town's squares established during the colonial times. The colonial part of this tour will allow you go over the moments in which our island slowly became the most important colony Spain had. Then we will go up west, in the same direction the city grew up till we get to the streets where the old town dies giving birth to Republican Havana. Here we will focus on the Republican years of Cuba from 1902-1959. Then we will jump to the Cuban Revolution in the 50'. The best way to explain this is to visit a Cuban family and be part of their routine for a bit, so we will visit my grandma's. Over coffee we will be able to discuss subjects like the missile crisis, the nationalizations, the embargo, the ration book (we will visit the grocery shop from which we get the subsidies depending availability and time), wages and others.

Hi! My name is Ron. Im a passionate tour guide formed by the Office of the Historian of Havana . I've been a tour guide for about 5 years now. So, I've been able to travel to every corner of the island. Thanks to that, I understand my country, my history and my people better. My dream was to become a diplomat and I pretty much believe I achieved that. I think of my self as a Cultural Ambassador of the Real and Authentic Cuba. Sounds nice ha.

Where you'll be

The idea is to go around important buildings and to use them as reference of moments in our history. Join me to learn and admire the silent witness of the wealth Havana once had. Like the Palace of the Capitan General, the Royal Force Castle, the stunning Cathedral of Havana or the former and actual Church of Saint Francis, the Capitol Building and the Great Theater of Havana or Central Park. The tour however, will end in my grandma's humble hom
