Tour description

Do you want to learn about the history and culture of Havana, but in a fun way, like when you visit a friend's city and she shows you her city? Well, this is exactly what I propose! On this tour you will visit the most beautiful and mysterious places in the city, such as the place where the remains of Christopher Columbus were preserved for 100 years. Through a very pleasant and pleasant walk, you will discover THE 4 most beautiful and ancient squares of Old Havana and the history behind them, as well as the places where counts, dukes and marquises lived and recreated in the years when Cuba was a colony of Spain and was attacked by corsairs and pirates. You will admire the beauty of the first colonial style houses that existed in Havana and which are preserved with the same appearance after more than 300 years. You will visit unique and emblematic places, such as the place where a mass was celebrated for the first time, or the first fortress built to defend Havana. You'll also discover more modern sights, including the Camera Obscura, which has a periscope system that uses a Leonardo da Vinci design to show real-time images from hundreds of meters away. Some of the places to visit are: - Plaza de Armas - Castle of La Real Fuerza - Palace of the Captains General - Plaza San Francisco - Convent of San Francisco de Asís - Plaza Vieja - The house of beer - The planetarium de la Habana - The Cathedral Square - The Cathedral Church of Havana. - La Bodeguita del Medio I offer you a very interesting and fun experience, with a very nice friend and guide, and better yet, you will pay what you want. I am waiting for you :)!

Fantastico tour! Habíamos paseado pero no habíamos visto la Habana hasta que Yoan nos fue enseñando y explicando los edificios e historias que tienen detrás :)

Un tour muy completo, informativo y ameno. Yoan fue muy amable y nos dió mucha información útil para nuestra estadía en La Habana. Totalmente recomendado, y es mejor tomarlo al principio de la estadía en La Habana ya que ayuda a entender mucho la historia y la realidad actual.

Visitamos la Habana Vieja con Yoan y fue una experiencia espectacular y enriquecedora. No solo nos la mostró desde los ojos de un local sino que nos aconsejó y se puso en contacto con nosotras desde el principio. Totalmente recomendable!
