Tour Itinerary

 

Gran Teatro de la Habana

We first start meeting at 9 am at the main entrance of the Gran Teatro de la Habana. The theatre is home to the Cuban National Ballet and was first opened in 1915. It seats 1500 and provides a stage for many dance and musical performances. There are many hidden treats and you will definitely want to take some photos of both, the interior and exterior parts of the theatre.

Paseo de Marti and El Capitolio

Once we complete the first part of the day, we will move onto a stroll along the Paseo de Marti. This was Havana’s first paved street, and resembled ultimate status if you lived along it. Many of the larger homes along the street are still there but have been restructured. The street will lead you to the National Capitol Building known as El Capitolio. It served as Cuba’s seat of government from 1929 until 1959 but lost its purpose following the Cuban Revolution. Your tour guide will be able to tell you more about the history and the future of this beautiful building.

 

Teniente Rey in Old Town of Havana

We will then take a short stroll along Teniente Rey where you will be able to browse and shop at numerous stores and small handi-craft markets.

 

Rafael Trejo Boxing Gym

Many visitors to Havana overlook this part of the city but it has a important connection to Cuba’s culture. You may get to see world-class athletes sparring, or children learning from their trainers.

* Please note that the gym is closed on weekends and from June to August. If this is the case, the tour guide will take to another alternative such as the Fine Arts Museum or Almacenes de San Jose Arts and Crafts Market.

 

Lunch/Chinatown (Barrio Chino de la Habana)

We will then have lunch at an authentic Cuban restaurant where you can enjoy a fresh cooked traditional Cuban meal. Once everyone is full, we will visit the little-known Chinatown using bici-taxies to get there. Its significance grew as many Chinese people fled to Cuba from the United States in the 19th century. Many left after the Cuban Revolution but it still remains an important part in the city of Havana.

We then take a short walk to a very artistic side of town where individual artists live and show off their artwork on the street. Callejon de Hamel, as it is called, has a unique atmosphere and spirit. You will be able to take photos and videos of musicians and artists along the street.

 

Classic Car Ride and a Farewell Drink

On this full day Havana tour, we will take you around the streets in a classic American taxi car, coming to a stop at the Castillo de los Tres Reyes Magos del Morro. This fort was originally built to protect Havana from pirates and other hostile foreign forces. This was Havana’s main line of defense for many centuries and now brings tourists from all over, giving them beautiful views of the city.

Our final stop will be a rooftop bar where you will be able to learn how to make the perfect mojito (or non-alcoholic). You can take photos up here, as you will have nice views of the city and ask your tour guide any final questions you may have. You may decide to stay here for more drinks or go out into the energetic streets of Havana.
