I am the owner and founder of Gio's Cuba Photo Tours and a resident of Trinidad since 2001. I have been a local guide since 2012, focusing on history and life in Trinidad. I know every inch of my beautiful city, and I would love to share it with you. As a local history buff, I am in a unique position to take tours of the city of Trinidad. My goal is for you to leave with a better understanding of what it means to be Cuban.

Tour description

About the Tour 🇪🇦

 This tour consists of discovering the history and current situation of the Villa de la Santísima Trinidad.

 Itinerary:

 -I will begin the tour by telling you the facts related to the foundation of the Villa; It will be in the very foundational square where we will start the tour!
 During the journey, after formally introducing myself and telling you the details related to the foundation of the former Villa de la Santísima Trinidad, you will see the most important buildings in the historic center of our beloved "Museum City of the Caribbean".
 -Then, we will walk to the neighborhoods bordering the historic center of the city, so we will visit the neighborhoods of La Popa and La Loma de los Chivos.

 -Then we will visit the Plaza Santa Ana, in whose surroundings are the old jail and the church of Santa Ana, the latter today is in ruins.

 -Finally we will go down San Procopio Street to finish the tour in Céspedes Park, former Plaza Carrillo.

 As an outstanding detail I want to highlight that on this tour you will learn not only about the history and current affairs of Trinidad but also of all of Cuba. You will have the opportunity to ask me questions about any topic that is relevant to you. Therefore, an important part of the tour will be to answer to their questions and tell them stories and legends of my country and particularly of my city.

 Also, during the tour you will have enough time to take pictures.
