Tour description

Hi, I'm a guy who loves talking about music, sports and life in general. English, Spanish 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 1900s until 1950. El Vedado was a suburb built by the upper class Cuban. It was the most important financial center in the mid-1900s, where American influence gave it its current point of view. In this tour we will visit some of the most important architectural symbols of this city and tell some of their stories of The National Hotel, the University of Havana and the Revolution Square, the latter has seen several events and in this place you will be in able to take pictures with the iconic face of Che Guevara. Not only will I 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. Don't doubt, it will be a fun tour full of information about my country !!!!!. I can find myself in red, yellow or green shirts.
