In detail:

We pass you by your house/ hotel and take you to the Fountain of India in the very center of Old Havana. This will be our starting point. There we will make a general introduction of the culture and history of Cuba in what we admire majestic buildings of the city such as the Capitol and the Alicia Alonso Grand Theater as well as its most recognized Central and Fraternity urban parks. We will move east, towards one of the most wonderful views of Havana and we will talk about one of the most emblematic monuments of the city.

A ferry ride will show us the beautiful view of the Bay of Havana and will guide us to the heart of the historic center.

Once we arrive at the historic center we will review the chronology and history of the town of San Cristóbal. We will travel through squares, emblematic streets, museums and appreciate colonial art. We will visit interiors of colonial houses and legendary bars where we will approach the origin of typical cocktails that today enjoy international fame.

In our journey through the heart of the city we will talk about its eccentric rulers, pirates who besieged it, invading English and unusual love stories. In the same way they will attend subjects linked to obsessed kings, mafiosi that operated in it, distinguished hotels, significant figures of their struggle and the intense bohemian life of their 50s.

Our walk will be a must to admire the frescoes, paintings and murals of your locality. Orient and make known the best sites for the acquisition of typical products of the country such as coffee, rum and chocolate and get into the daily life of its inhabitants.
