About the tour

Many tours aim to show the old part of Havana as the most historic, and forget the attraction of other parts of the city, such as Vedado. Place where is the busiest street in the capital, the Coppelia ice cream shop, where we will have a stop to take ice cream and hotels like the Hotel Nacional. This tour is for those who want to enter the "New Havana". I also have paid tours on http://www.daytourhabana.com, if you contact me through that webpage and put “GURU-CONTACT” on your message, all the tours you book will have a 50% off for groups of more than 2 people.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Heikel had a scheduling conflict and requested a one hour later start. we agreed. we left our cruise ship early and arrived at the meeting spot ahead of time, but no heikel. we waited around a while and then gave up. upon our return to the ship, we found an email from him canceling the tour due to rain. well, we were walking around havana all day and it rained for only a short while. in my opinion, heikel is not a reliable host. he did offer to reschedule, but that was not possible for us. very disappointing.

Response from Heikel:

I am very sorry you waited for me that long. We rescheduled our tour for 11:30 but I was waiting a bus to go to the meeting place and it was raining. I could not get the bus and just at 11:15 I decided not going because it was still raining and it takes more than 40 minutes for me to get there. Sorry but transportation in Cuba is not easy and I tried as hard as I could. Thanks for your review!

El guía disfrutaba con su trabajo mostrándote todo el misterio y el embrujo de la habana y esa voluntad se capta y se contagia.

During our time in havana, we did 4 separate walking tours. we booked a tour of the vedado area with heikel. heikel was the very best guide. he told us the history of the vedado area as well as shared stories of his family's struggles during the special period. heikel's english is very good. if i ever go back to havana, i will book heikel for whatever tours i can. thanks so much heikel.
