What you'll do

Havana is a rolling museum; it is the only city in the world that still commonly uses a set of cars from the 1940s and 1950s. Discovering Havana in a classic car is one-in-a-life experience that will allow you to appreciate the former splendor and the today’s magical decadence of a city that has been declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and as one of the Marvel Cities of modern times.
However, this tour will be more than just renting a vintage car and driving around the city . You will discover the urban evolution of Havana, the sui generis architecture of the city, and the historical traces of five centuries that are still present on the Cuban capital. Besides, you will visit multiple sites that are hidden to the regular tourist and during the whole trip, you will be guided by a local expert who will provide you with his point of view about Cuban idiosyncrasy and society.
At the end of the excursion we will discover an art gallery whose main purpose is to support the community through art, by teaching children the best of human values. Also, we will share a drink at a local business nearby the gallery where we will talk more about the emerging Cuban private economy and the must-visited places in Havana as well.

We took this tour in a beautiful blue American car the morning after arriving in Havana. Alfonso and Alessandro the driver took us to all the notable sights and explained the history and present day Havana. A really good insight into a wonderful city. We could tell that Alfonso really loves sharing his love of Havana with visitors. In addition very good value for money. We were happy to support a small business.

Initial meetup (even without internet access) was smooth and on time. Our guide Neivy was very welcoming and gave us a lot of insight to not only the history but also the day to day life of the Cuban people. Driving through parts of Havana that we couldn't venture out by ourselves was absolutely gold. I highly recommend this experience while you're in Havana, you'll walk away with so much!

Despite the fact that my friend and I didn't have access to the internet and were worried about meeting up with them at the meeting point, our host Neivy found us at the location with no problem! Neivy is a fun, young, and smart guide who gave us extensive historical background of all the places we visited. The car was beautiful, and the price was pretty good, I would recommend this to anyone visiting Cuba.
