About the guru Yan

Hello! My name is Yan. I am a young graduated from college who resides in the most wonderful city in Cuba: Havana. I consider it my home because I was born and raised here and, on another hand, I study every day to do a better job and be able to make new visitors know well my magical city.

Hello! My name is Yan. I am a young graduated from college who resides in the most wonderful city in Cuba: Havana. I consider it my home because I was born and raised here and, on another hand, I study every day to do a better job and be able to make new visitors know well my magical city. I also like to help in case of any doubt or question for being in an unknown country. Every time is special because I have the privilege to meet and share with people from other parts of the planet. Join me and you will not regret my Free Walking Tour through Havana! ¡You will see that it is not in vain that it is one of the 7 wonders cities of the world!

About the tour

One of the most charming things that exist when visiting Havana is to walk its Historical Center. Join me on this 2.5-hour walk through Old Havana, particularly through the Four Main Squares and the streets that connect them. We will be taking a trip back in time to walk between the stunning architecture of the colonial era (XVI, XVII, XVIII and XIX centuries) that mixes simultaneously with the contemporary daily life. In our trip you will also have the opportunity to know about Cuba: its history, its reality, its people ...

At the end of the tour I can recommend you very good places to lunch/dinner. They have very good cuisine but also very good prices.

Our itinerary includes:

• Cathedral Square

• Castle of the Royal Force

• Main Square

• El Templete

• Museum of the City

• Saint Francis Square

• Convent of San Francisco de Asís

• Old Square

• Bodeguita del Medio

A very pleasant time awaits you! You will not regret it!

IMPORTANT: Please reserve only for the number of adults (+18 years) that make up your group. Example: 2 adults and 2 children the reservation would be made only for 2 people.

The official schedules of the tours are at 10:30 am and 3:00 pm, but if you want another schedule or a private tour, please contact me and ask me for availability. If you leave me your phone number it would be very good for a better functioning of the reservations.

Yan was an amazing personable host on my tour. I learned a lot about Cuban history and architecture and felt like o had gained a friend by the end.

Yan kindly organised a separate guide for us as we wanted the tour In English and the rest of the group In Spanish. Our guide, Rolando was fantastic! He did not only show us the main sights on four main squares In Havana, but explained much about the history of Cuba and How people live. He was Very knowledgeable, fun and willing to address our questions. I Would recommend this tour for anyone who has limited time In Havana and wants to learn about its past and present.
