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.

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

Join me on this 2.5 hours walk. It is a walking tour through the Historical Center of 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 architecture of the colonial era (XVI, XVII, XVIII and XIX centuries) that mixes simultaneously with the daily life of contemporary Havana.

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.

Also, if you want to make a stop on the way to enter a place or buy a souvenir, you can do it.

Our itinerary is flexible. It includes but is not limited to:

• 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!

The official schedules of the tours are at 10:00 am and 3:00 pm, but if you want another schedule, please, contact me and ask me for availability.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Response from Yan:

Gracias, Raúl, por tu buena opinión. Me alegro que te haya ido bien con Roly. Sabía que era bueno por eso lo envié. Apreciaría mucho si te tomaras un minuto y le opinaras en su página, lo necesita mucho ahora q está empezando. Un cordial saludo!

Tour muy interesante grandes conocimientos pero un poco lento para mi gusto.

Response from Yan:

Hola Marta. Gracias por tomarte un tiempo para evaluarme y comentar. En un mundo tan diverso es difícil complacer a todos los gustos. Pienso que, en el sentido del ritmo de los tours, tiene que ver con el temperamento y el carácter de la persona, y al trabajar con un sinnúmero de ellas pienso que la responsabilidad de hacer una petición al gusto, a tiempo, es de las mismas. Es una verdadera lástima que algo que se pudo haber corregido en el principio del recorrido haya afectado todo el tiempo que compartimos juntos, que para mí fue bueno. Saludos cordiales.
