Tour description

Hi, I'm a guy who loves talking about music, sports and life in general. English and Portuguese are my favorite languages. As a Cuban I like to dance salsa and listen to Cuban music. The tour is absolutely free. At the end of the tour, we assume that you only cooperate if you liked it. 
Get to know New Havana (also known as El Vedado) and its wonderful houses built in the early 1900 until 1950. El Vedado was a suburb built by the cuban upper class. Vedado town was the most important financial center in the mid-1900s, where American influence gave its current point of view. In this tour we will visit some of the most important architectural symbols of this town and I will tell you some of its stories.We will visit  The National Hotel, The University of Havana and the Revolution Square, the latter has had several events and in this place you will be in able to take pictures with the iconic face of Che Guevara. Not only I will explain to you about our history and the stories of this city, but about our current reality, which is very interesting, I will also try to answer the questions you ask. Do not doubt it
It will be a fun tour full of information about my country. Can find me wearing a green Polo shirt.

Ihosvany was very nice. He explained everything very thorough. Vedado is a nice district to discover if you’ve seen Old Havana.

Hicimos un FreeTour por el Vedado que nos sorprendió por sus anécdotas históricas, interés cultural... acompañadas de Ihosvany que de una forma muy amena nos hizo disfrutar del recorrido con un gran rigor histórico.
