Havana City Tour

Havana City Tour, Cuba

Modern Havana contrasts strikingly with the attractive colonial heart of the city. You will be picked up at a pre-arranged time from your hotel. The tour is completely flexible and usually involves hire of transportation in a classic American car for 2 hours.

Typically, it includes a visit to the Capitolio building and a drive along the city's famous Malecon seafront from Havana Vieja to the high rises and crumbling atmospheric streets of Vedado, passing the historic Nacional Hotel.

Other sights you can include are the Plaza de la Revolucion, an imposing square dominated by a giant statue of Jose Marti, Cuba's most famous independence hero. This is a gathering point for political rallies and Fidel Castro's infamously long speeches, some of which have been known to exceed 8 hours.

You can also take in various museums, such as the Museo de la Revolucion on Paseo del Prado or drive to Ernest Hemmingway's house.

Visiting the harbour fortress at the end of the tour is a great way to end the tour with a panoramic view of the city and Havana Bay.
