What you'll do

The experience will begin in Central Park, from where we will enter 500-year-old walled Havana. Our walk will take us along routes that only a Cuban knows, allowing you to see the contrast between the different historical periods, from the colonial Havana taken by the Spaniards, its passage through the capitalist system, to the socialist government of today. We will see from buildings that are barely standing, to the most expensive hotels in Cuba, witnessing the two faces of Havana. In this tour you will also witness the daily life of the Cuban on foot and learn how our economy works. We will visit the main squares, state markets, private markets and other sites of peculiar interest of our route while enjoying the countless works of street art that adorn the city. We will cross by boat the Bay of Havana where we will meet Regla, a hidden and forgotten town, which has been trapped in time. From Regla we will take a taxi that will give us an additional tour through Regla town, around the bay, leaving us at the meeting point.

Your hosts

Hello, my name is David and I look forward to meeting you and knowing your culture. I am the typical Cuban born and raised in Havana, where this experience arises from the walks that my mother gave me since I was a child and that I now do professionally for travelers like you who want to know my culture. I have been a tourist guide for years. My mom Aliet, my friend Ruben, and I on this Tour share the passion of making our rich roots known and making new friends. You can count on our advice, suggestions and any kind of clarification of doubts about my country that can help you understand and enjoy a better experience in Cuba. Book to enjoy this experience together. If you want to know more about our tour, here is the link to our social media @sientecubacondavid
