Walking through the histories of Havana!

To walk through Havana Vieja is to enter into a time machine: to return to the epoch of centuries past, walking among colonial architecture that is mixed simultaneously with the daily life of contemporary Havana.

We will enter into the historical, social and cultural life of this space, where we will encounter a fascinating mix of the old, the new and the future. In this space we find numerous beautiful plazas, each circled by architectural jewels of the colonial period. We will wind our way through the old city, from narrow streets to grand plazas, visiting many of my favorite places which give the neighborhood its deep and distinctive character. Amidst all of these historical sights, we will stop at my favorite brewery for drinks, and when we get hungry we can choose among many options for lunch.

I look forward to sharing my neighborhood with you!

A Recent Review of this tour

Reynier overwhelmed us (in a good way) with facts, history, local politics and much insight into Cuba and Havana. We especially enjoyed seeing the barrio of Jaimanitas and the work of Jose Fuster; that was amazing and something we would not have found by ourselves. We also enjoyed looking back at the view of the city from across the water (by the statute of Jesus). Reynier was flexible and accommodating.
