A Taste Of Havana

No visit to Cuba is complete without exploring the island’s fascinating and vibrant capital, Havana. This four-day private tour is a perfect introduction to the country’s history and culture and an ideal way to begin your Cuban adventure. After the tour, extend your stay with a few days on the beach or try one of our other touring options which include the interior of the country - the choice is yours, so please do ask us to tailor your itinerary to suit your requirements.

Day 1 On arrival into Havana, you will be met by your guide and transferred to the Saratoga Hotel.


Day 2 In the morning, your walking tour will start with a ‘bici-take’ taxi ride, and take you via Calle Prado to the Cathedral Square, passing the famous Art Deco Bacardí building and the Museum of the Revolution. Later, explore the old colonial town on foot. Your guide will point out the key sites, including the Palacio de los Capitanes Generales (the former official residence of the governors of Havana), La Plaza de Armas (the city’s main square), Hemingway’s favourite haunts in Old Havana and El Castillo de la Real Fuerza, a stone fortress which dates back to 1562. In the afternoon, visit the Colonial Art Museum or the National Museum of Fine Arts which houses an important collection of Cuban masterpieces. In the evening, choose to dine at one of Havana’s best restaurants, or enjoy an excursion to the famous Tropicana to experience a spectacular evening of Cuban music and dance (both optional and at extra cost).

Day 3 Today, visit one of the famous brand name cigar factories, such as Fabrica de Tabacos H Upmann, where you will see all the processes involved in the production of high quality Cuban cigars. Afterwards, enjoy a tour in a classic American car into the world of the 1950s - Revolution Square, the Malecón esplanade and the legendary Hotel Nacional where you will learn all about the days of the Mafia. Then on to the famous 5th Avenue, the former upper class residential area of Miramar, where the beautiful mansions and the renovated Club Havana still remind you of bygone American times. You’ll love the architecture in this part of the city. On the way back you’ll visit the house, street project and gallery of Jose Fuster, known as the “Gaudi of the Caribbean”, who spent over 18 years building and decorating Jaimanitas in the outskirts of Havana. Dinner tonight is at one of Havana’s unique ‘paladares’.

Fiona's View


"A perfect introduction to the vibrant city of Havana, the inclusions in this private tour have been handpicked by our team of experts - you’ll visit all the iconic city sites and your expert local guide will also take you off the beaten track to experience the real Havana."

"An optional evening excursion is available to the famous Tropicana cabaret, and we highly recommend it - a spectacular throwback to Cuba’s hedonistic, pre- Revolution glory days, this extravaganza of colourful costumes, dancers and singers is definitely a night to remember."

"With private enterprise slowly re-emerging in Cuba, the number of locally-owned restaurants or ‘paladares’ in Havana is on the increase - the quality of the food served at these private venues is often far superior to that of the stateowned restaurants, and your guide will be happy to assist with recommendations and reservations for dinner."
