You'll start the day meeting the tour guide at 10 am at Central Park right in front of the monument to Jose Marti in the middle of the Square (the tour guide will meet you in the shade of the statue, Fertours will email you a photo of your tour guide). Walking by the world famous bar ¨El Floridita¨ (where Ernest Hemingway used to drink his favorite drink ¨Daiquirí¨) you’ll stroll down Obispo Street, the busiest street of Havana, full of restaurants and stores where you will feel like a local walking in the crowd.
Turning right on one corner we would walk and see some real Havana, absolutely interesting and also safe. You will walk through neighborhoods that will give you a good picture of real life, true old Havana off the beaten path, which would allow you to see real Havana and therefore real Cuba. You would stroll down the streets like a local admiring the architecture and the hidden gems only available in this area of the city. Most of all you will get to see the day to day life of the Cuban people, this would be in a non touristy environment which will make your experience more real and unforgettable.
Due to some regulations the four squares of old Havana(Saint Francis of Asissi´s square, Old Square, Main Square and Cathedral Square) can't be part of the itinerary, however, the tour guide might be able to walk you through the squares at his or her own discretion. It´s the time to travel in time on cobbled streets.
You’ll stop for a drink at the rooftop bar of Hotel Ambos Mundos where Hemingway lived for a number of years. The view is spectacular and it’s very relaxing to seat and chat with the tour guide to get more insights on the Cuban life.
From there you’ll keep walking and exploring Old Havana until 12:30 or 1:00 pm when you would go for lunch at a restaurant of your choice or one recommended by the tour guide. When it comes to restaurants, old Havana has a lot of choices and hidden gems that will amaze you indeed.
After lunch you will enjoy a one hour ride in one of the beautiful classic convertible cars from the 50's. You’ll say good bye to your tour guide around 3:00pm having seen the best of Old Havana.
