Can't wait to visit again! Wonderful city with very rich culture. Such a shame we've been restricted from it for so long. Blexie Tours was great and our tour guide Rosio was so awesome that I couldn't say enough about her.

We had THE BEST tour with Eileen from Havana Journeys. She was so smart and knowledgable, her English was fantastic, she was fun and had a great plan, engaged the kids and the adults and managed to make us feel like we saw all of the high points in a short time. Havana Journeys was super organized and kept us really well informed leading up to our trip, and did a great job of organizing one of the most amazing days. We had 9 people in our tour and each and every one of us raved about our experience. Read Less

The tours was part walking tour of some of the older parts of Havana, with visits to tow local bars for a mojito and a daiquiri, then a ride in the old cars of Havana, with a stop for lunch at a rooftop cafe. We also visited a couple of stores with rum, cigars and local crafts. The guide was knowledgeable and did her best with a voice amplifier that sometimes squawked at us. It was a good tour, all things considered, and I think well worth the price with all it included. Read Less

'Best of Havana' six hour tour. Was a bus and walking tour. Included lunch at an authentic restaurant and two alcoholic beverages (government-owned restaurant, not a paladar). It said you visit a distillery, but it's really just a shop that sells cigars, coffee, and Havana Club and Legendario Rum. You get to do tastings of the coffee and rum, and get time to make purchases before heading over to the cemetery. I recommend this tour! We definitely wouldn't have seen as much if we wandered around the city on our own. Read Less

We booked a 6 hour tour through Blexie Tours. We were met by Rollie, our, guide, across the street in one of the Havana squares. We did a short walking tour first since my husband and I had walked around several areas the day before. It was interesting to hear the history of what we had missed walking on our own. You can tour the Capital on your own with an English speaking tour guide. Very interesting. Our guide went to University and spoke perfect English. We then met his cousin who took us on the rest of the tour in his 58 Chevy. They took us all over Havana. Never realized how long and how big Havana actually is. We even had lunch at a non-government paladra. Read Less

Our Hemingway tour was canceled (we don't know why) so as a back-up we booked a seven-hour city tour that included a stop at Finca Viga, Hemingway's house, now a museum run by the Cuban government. Although you can't go into the house, you can see most of it through open doors and windows. It is being very well maintained, as is Hemingway's boat, El PIlar, which is in a large shed near the swimming pool. Finca Viga was the highlight of this tour. We did not exchange any U.S. dollars into the tourism currency, CUC; instead we were able to use U.S. dollars and euros with tour guides, in shops, restaurants, etc. There is an official 13%+ penalty for exchanging U.S. dollars but only a small exchange charge for exchanging Canadian dollars or euros.

We very much enjoyed our private tour with Alejandro and Winnie from Cuba Outings! We started with a drive around New Havana and Modern Havana in Alejandro's 1953 Chevy BelAir convertible. We visited El Cristo de la Habana, the Plaza de la Revolución, drove by Chinatown and the giant Christopher Columbus Cemetery, as well as through the Bosque de La Habana and the Capitol before returning to Old Havana. We said goodbye to Alejandro and the convertible, and Winnie took us to a small, privately owned restaurant for lunch, Barroco, where we had delicious mojitos and some vieja ropa. Although the mojitos were great, I do find myself wishing I had tried the papaya smoothie concoction that Winnie ordered, as it looked delicious! After lunch, we continued the walking portion of the tour of Old Havana, visiting the Plaza de la Catedral, the Plaza de Armes and the surrounding museums (although they were unfortunately closed, as we visited on a Monday), Plaza Vieja, before returning to the Plaza de San Francisco next to the cruise port. Winnie kept up a steady stream of information (per our request - she said she didn't want to overwhelm us, but we assured her we wanted to be overwhelmed), and we learned not just about the history of Cuba, but a lot of the present as well. Excellent tour, I would highly recommend it! Read Less
