Havana´s Highlights

We pick you up from your hotel or AirbnB in Havana city at 10:00 am. If you are coming ona cruise then the tour guide will meet you at 10:00 am at the Fountain of the Lions at Saint Francis of Assisi Square right across the cruise terminal. The tour guide will be holding a sign with your name on it of the name of our company. During the day you would visit the Highlights of the city, places like the National Capitol, the Central Park, the Grand Theatre, the world famous bar ¨El Floridita¨ (where Ernest Hemingway used to drink his favorite drink ¨Daiquirí¨) and the former Presidential Palace nowadays Museum of the Revolution, all fully restored, speak loud of the splendor and glamour of those past days. Driving by the seawall on the way to the Revolution Square you will see how the old city merges with the new and modern buildings, creating a metaphor of the history of our country.
Once you get hungry, we will go and have lunch at a local restaurant, a meal that might just become the best one that you will have in Cuba (The average price goes from 15 to 20 CUC/per person). Right after lunch we take a walking tour in the oldest area of the city, colonial Havana, which will include its 4 main squares: San Francisco Square, Old Square, Main Square and Cathedral Square. The squares where the city was born and where the most beautiful buildings were built. It´s the time to travel in time on cobbled streets.
Cuba is best known also by its two premium products, cigars and rum. Always optional we can take you to the Havana Club Rum Museum (7 CUC/per person) and a cigar factory (10 CUC/per person) where you will know and see how they are made but most interesting where they come from.
Last but not least, we wrap it up enjoying the most breathtaking view of Havana from “El Cristo de la Havana”, the largest sculpture ever made from Carrara white marble by a woman. It´s a breathtaking view that will crown your day and tour.
We drive back to your hotel sometime around 16:00 hrs knowing that you just took the best tour to the beautiful Havana and hoping to seeing you again.
