About the guru César

Hi, I'm César, a resident of Vedado, the more residencial neighborhood of Havana. I'm a student and have studied economics and computer science. In my free time I give tours. It's my passion to show and teach newcomers about my city through the eyes of a native.

About the tour

Surely you have seen pictures of Old Havana: a colorful array of '50 cars, Spanish Colonial and Art Deco architecture, the remains of a once Catholic nation... On my tour I will show you this, but much more. Havana, as the cultural center of Cuba, is multidimensional. As we walk through the old city, I will explain to you not only the history and the architecture surrounding us, but also the flow of daily life for its residents, and what it means to be Cuban in 2018.

Highlights: Bars visited by Hemingway, the Castle of Real Fuerza, statue of the Gentleman of Paris, the best coffee in Havana at El Escorial, Obispo Boulevard, the Cathedral of Havana, the Fair of the Artisans, the Casa del Habano (cigar shop), the original US Embassy, various social projects, and much more!

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!

César was a wonderful and knowledgable guide. i have been on other tours in havana and this one stood apart for césar's charismatic nature and enthusiasm to engage in conversation. it was also a much more authentic representation of modern day habana than i'd seen- tied together history, food and life.
