Old Havana Walking Tour

Havana 4 hours

This Havana tour won’t just show you the best of Old Havana, it’ll show you the best of Old Havana from a local perspective. Our local English speaking guide will take you through the labyrinth of streets of one of the oldest cities in the Western Hemisphere, where you’ll discover the enchanting secrets of this living museum where residents live amongst the unique charm and haunting decay of buildings dating as far back as the 16th century. Havana is the largest city in the Caribbean and was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982. Restoration is occurring slowly, so while many of the main buildings are excellently restored to their original glory, others have taken on their own look by being left to age naturally, virtually neglected since the Revolution triumphed more than 50 years ago. This Old Havana walking tour works its way through an old part of Central Havana and then through to the heart of Old Havana. Along the way, you’ll get to take in some of the city’s most iconic sights, such as the Art Museum, Calle Obispo, Plaza de Armas, Plaza de la Catedral, Plaza San Francisco de Asis, Plaza Vieja and the Hotel Ambos Mundos. Your Havana adventure will end with a delicious local Havana lunch in a café or restaurant and a refreshing cool drink in one of Old Havana’s most famous watering holes.

Local Impact: How you will help the local community by joining this tour:
This tour helps promote local cultural heritage as you'll be exploring Old Havana, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This tour also financially supports local, private businesses (versus state-owned), which is so important in Cuba. Supporting private businesses is a way to boost the local economy and keep money in the hands of hard-working locals. Your guide will also show the contrast between private and state-owned businesses for further context. Your tour ends at a local, private restaurant where money spent is directly supporting the owners of the business and workers who are mostly young people who live in the community.
