We had 8 people so two classic cars with two drivers and a guide they showed up at 7:30 right on time introduce him self (Daniel ) and told us that he was our guide for the day and that he was here to get the most from our day and that he would stop at any place we asked him to . When we left the car to go see sights he came with us and gave us all kinds of historic information . Stops at a nice small place drinking establishments and a very nice lunch . And a quick stop at a market then for the ride home . For the trip home Danial traded cars so the people who were riding in it could here some of his stories and tell them about the the items we went buyWe arrived back to the hotel at 6 PM . I believe that Danial went over and above to ensure that we were thrilled with his service and always was watching to keep us close to get her
This is a great excursion. The history and architecture of Havana is amazing. Our guide, Ruben, shared so many great stories and I learned so much about Cuban culture. He was also very funny. The tour was very well organized while still allowing us time to explore a bit on our own. The Cuban people we met were very friendly and we always felt safe. A complete stranger overheard me ask a question to my son and just stopped to chat with us and answered everything we asked. The lunch provided was good and well organized allowing us to quickly get back to seeing the sights. If you’ve never been to Havana this tour is a must do. Walking through a 500 year old city with this much history is really special.
Fantastic tour, with some wonderful guys, Luis and Jojo, funny and very knowledge, they were able to answer all our quistions and made a wonderful day for us ;) The car was good, and the driving itself was an experience, driving thru many Cuban cities on our way. We had 2 good stop for breakfast and dinner. We had about 1,5 hours in each city: Trinidad and Cienfuegos - could had spent some more time just walking around, especially in Trinidad, but we also had a long drive home, so it was okay. If you go on this trip, be aware of many hours drive, but definitely worth it - we recommend this trip highly ;)
This was an amazing tour. I highly recommend going on this tour to learn more about the fascinating city of Havana. My tour guide Eddie spoke excellent English and was able to connect what I was seeing with some historical facts and cultural meanings. He was able to answer all of my random questions and catered the tour to what I was interested in seeing. Book this tour for the 1st full day of your trip and it might change the rest of your visit. We drove around in Eddie’s old car which was a treat and talked about life and Havana.
The food at the hotel restaurant that we stopped at was horrible. Only half of the tour guests went up to the buffet and the food was almost all gone. Had to wait after requesting the buffet staff to reload the pots. In other parts of the world this would not even be considered a buffet. Poor selection. Would be better to reduce the price of the tour and have an optional hour to eat at a restaurant of your choice.
