Be a Local for a Day
Duration of the Tour: 5 Hour from 10:00 to 15:00
You'll start the day meeting the tour guide at 10 am at the Fountain across street from the cruise terminal if you come in a cruise or at the Central Park right in front of the monument to Jose Marti in the middle of the Square, if you staying in a hotel or in a hostal, the tour guide will meet you in the shade of the statue, (Cuba With Us will let you know the name of the Tour Guide).
Walking by the world famous bar ¨El Floridita¨ (where Ernest Hemingway used to drink his favorite drink ¨Daiquirí¨) you’ll stroll down Obispo Street, the busiest street of Havana, full of restaurants and stores where you will feel like a local walking in the crowd.
Turning right on one corner we would walk and see some real Havana, absolutely interesting and also safe. You will walk through neighborhoods that will give you a good picture of real life, but only for a few blocks until you get to Old Square where you’ll start the tour of Old Havana. This is where you will walk San Francisco Square, Old Square, Main Square and Cathedral Square. The squares where the city was born and where the most beautiful buildings were built. It´s the time to travel in time on cobbled streets.
From there you’ll keep walking and exploring Old Havana until 12:30 or 1:00 pm when you would go for lunch at a restaurant of your choice or one recommended by the tour guide. When it comes to restaurants, old Havana has a lot of choices and hidden gems that will amaze you indeed.
After lunch you will have one hour in a convertible car to see, explore and learn a little bit more of our culture.
