Havana City Tour Excursion Reviews

A beautiful and colorful city, you can walk down El Malecón, visit Old Havana and the Catedral de San Cristóbal, hear salsa music, and shop open-air bazaars.
A local met us in the town square right outside of the cruise ship.
Sail Date: August 2018
A local met us in the town square right outside of the cruise ship. We went on a walking tour for a few hours and learned about the culture, local monuments, and customs. Was a good, high-level overview of Havana and how things work.

The excursion in Havana that we had booked several weeks ahead of time was a complete waste time & money. We booked the extended tour of 5 hours which should have included a one hour shopping trip to a market where we had planned to shop for souvenirs with our two granddaughters. The shopping trip was eliminated and not replaced with anything else. The "5 hour trip" started at 10 a.m. and finished at 1.38 p.m. with the tour guide promising to show us an area for shopping for souvenirs as she led other members of our tour group to a restaurant she had persuaded them to eat at. We walked through the back streets in the searing heat for over 10 minutes away from the ship with no sign of shops so, as there were no opportunities to shop where we were being led & several of our party were retirees, we decided to turn around & struggled back to the ship. Our souvenirs of Cuba had to be purchased at the very limited shops in the cruise terminal. All we saw of Havana was a couple of forts and two drink stands by the side of the road and a cemetery. The tour description in the Royal Caribbean literature bore no resemblance to where we were taken on the actual tour. To add insult to injury, when we returned to the ship, on the RC television channel this excursion was still being advertised as per the RC literature (including the opportunity to shop which in actual fact never materialized.

Going around in an air conditioned bus is definitely the way to go. The sites were great but Havana is really not geared towards mass tourism yet.

Saw a lot of the city on foot and caught many of the highlights of Havana. Our guide brought us to a wonderful Cuban restaurant for lunch. After lunch, we went on a wider city tour in classic old cars. An overall great experience. Would recommend going in a smaller group though (had 10 in our group and couldn’t catch most of the history of the city with that many people.) Read Less

Great tour of old and new areas. Guide was informative. Only odd thing was that at the end she took us to a 'local' store to get rum and cigars - definitely not on the authorized tour schedule.
