After breakfast, the guide will meet you for the first time and take you to the Museum of the Revolution, housed in the former Presidential Palace, offering an interesting insight into Cuba’s revolutionary history. After our visit, there will be a fascinating, guided stroll through Old Havana, visiting the four famous historical squares, Plaza de la Catedral, Plaza de San Francisco, Plaza Vieja and Plaza de Armas. Absorb the atmosphere and amazing vibrancy of Old Havana and explore the narrow bustling streets which many have described as walking through a film set! At the end of the walking tour lunch will be served in a traditional restaurant.
After lunch, visit a local bar and have the fun of making some of Cuba’s famous rum cocktails with the local bar staff and there will certainly be the chance to sample the cocktails if you wish.
After cocktails spend a couple of hours exploring the city in chauffeur driven Old American cars dating back to the 50s and beyond, a great way to enjoy this unique city!
The cars will take us to the impressive Revolution Square overlooked by the mural of Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara, through the downtown Vedado district of the city and past the elegant mansions and embassies in Miramar district before a spectacular drive along the ‘Malecon’, Havana’s seafront promenade. If time is available after the tour, the late afternoon will be free to enjoy Havana independently or relax back at your accommodation.
