Havana Historical City Center Excursion Reviews

Havana still carries a sense of mystery and intrigue, and there is perhaps no better way to understand its history and culture than by touring its Historical City Center. The architecture alone is worth a few hours of exploration.

Walked around and enjoyed the architecture and hope restoration continues, enjoyed all the antique cars; had lunch in this tiny place with great food and music.

It was ok, but some of the stops seemed like they were added just to take up time. We were being directed by the guide to purchase merchandise from the vendors at the stops as if he was being paid by them.

We took the 4 hours walking tour. The tour guide spoke english, but was not very loud and her English was so-so. I think she spoke English but her words were in the order of a Spanish sentence. Regardless, she did a nice job and the tour was good as it gave us the lay of the land. After the tour, we were able to venture back out on our own with some confidence about where things were and kind of how the city works. Read Less

My comments mostly duplicate the previous tour! However, on both, I got some good pictures of the 50's model cars. We were told by the tour guides that some of those cars used to take tourists for rides for a fee are privately owned, some are government owned and some are owned by the Cuban military. Change cannot come soon enough to these poor suppressed people who have known nothing but this type of government since they were born after Castro came in to power by revolution! Read Less

Our guide Giselle did a good job. She had to manage 40 people and a few had physical challenges which really slowed down the group so we spent a lot of time waiting for people to catch up. She also could have benefited from a microphone because she was difficult to hear. Since we had a 4 hour bus ride from Cienfuegos to Havana (due to the port of Havana being closed by weather) it was a long, long day. Didn't have any time to shop except for cigars and rum at the government store. Lunch was provided at a private restaurant and it was good. Again the tour was very heavy on how wonderful the revolution was for Cuba. Read Less
