Walking Tour Itinerary:
The guide will pick you up anywhere in Havana. If you are staying at a hotel or casa particular, your guide will come to your door to meet you at the start of the tour and then take you to Old Havana. If you are staying far from Old Havana you might have to pay a small extra charge for the taxi transportation, but this is minor.
During the tour you will explore Old Havana, walking down all the most popular streets and checking out the street art and architecture.
Some of the main sights include:
You will also see Parque Central, the Bacardi building, Calle San Rafael, Plaza San Francisco de Asis, and many more interesting places.
You will also have the opportunity to check out the Camera Obscura (2cuc extra per person for entrance cost), the Conde de Villanueva mansion to see how cigars are hand rolled (free) and the Havana ferry (free). The Old Havana walking tour ends at the Plaza Vieja, where your Havana tour guide can recommend some good places for lunch.
The tour is 100% customizable. Just tell the guide what you are particularly interested in and he will tailor the tour to those specific themes. For example: history, music, architecture, culture, art, the revolution, food, coffee, chocolate, santeria, churches, poverty, etc. Whatever subjects are of special interest to you, we can customize the tour to profile those aspects of Havana.
Meeting Your Tour Guide
If you are staying in Havana the guide will come pick you up at your apartment or hotel, free of charge. If you would prefer to meet your guide at another location, please tell us a location which works for you, and we will have the guide waiting for you with a sign that says your name.
If you are arriving by cruise ship: The area around the cruise ship dock is very congested with foot and vehicle traffic so we pick up customers for the tours at the Havana Rum Museum. It’s about 3 blocks north of the main cruise terminal. It’s a very easy walk. Here is a map with the exact location. The guide will be waiting for you in front of the Havana Rum Museum (262 Avenida del Puerto, at the corner of Sol Street) with a sign that says your name.
