Hello! My name is Yan. I am a young graduated from college who resides in the most wonderful city in Cuba: Havana.

About the tour

Discover what happened before and after the Triumph of the Cuban Revolution in 1959. The destination of Modern Havana is a walk through Vedado, the main residential neighborhood of Havana, whose route includes important constructions that emerged in the Cuban neocolonial period and describes aspects of Cuba today.

We will begin our tour on 23rd Street, the most famous and busy street in the heart of Havana. We will head to the National Hotel, which after 80 years still retains all the splendor of its eclectic architecture and has been visited by hundreds of celebrities from the arts, sciences and politics. Open to the visitor, we will get to know his surprising memories from the inside and we will enjoy from his garden a beautiful view of the sea and the popular Havana's Malecon.

(IMPORTANT: The National Hotel is charging 5 cuc to be able to do the tour with a tour guide inside of it. Making this payment they include a traditional Cuban drink or any other free liquid in the hotel's Bar of Fame).

Passing through the most famous corner of Vedado, 23 and L, we will continue our journey to the University of Havana, a majestic building inspired by the Greek Parthenon and presided by the beautiful sculpture of the Alma Mater, whose steps descended the Centennial Generation in the First March of the Torches.

Finally, after knowing a bit about education, health and sports, we will visit the emblematic Revolution Square, an essential place to visit, to learn about its history, see the José Martí Memorial and take a picture of Che as a proof of the experience.

Along the way you will also get to know different aspects of the Cuban reality of today. Any question is welcome.

I assure you a very good experience!

Yan was so so nice and incredibly knowledgeable as well as super personal. I learned a ton about what life is like for the average Cuban citizen, learned the history of important monuments such as the Hotel Nacional and Plaza de Revolucion. Yan was super easy to talk too and really funny and engaging. He answered any questions I had and overall was just so great to get to know. I loved this tour so much! Thank you Yan!

This was our second tour with enjoyed the Old Havana tour so much that we did a second one. Again Yan was very knowledgeable about the history of the Hotel Nacionale and made it he did not just recite facts. We had an enjoyable walk and saw sights that we would not have on our own. We have taken many walking tours around the world and Yan is definitely an excellent guide. Thank you Yan!
