Excellent tour. I really enjoyed walking around Havana. It was a great introduction to the city and helped me enjoy the rest of my stay. X
We were pleased to walk with your guide with a tour of only 3 people. So we could ask many questions and learn about living conditions of people in Havanna. And also about history. Sorry we did not understand all of his English explanations. (Forgot the guide's name.....)
My friend and I did the historical tour the day after we arrived in Cuba and it was great! It was the perfect was to start off our trip and Yosvani was a wonderful tour guide. He was funny, super informative, and the tour went by so fast!
we loved giovani!!! that was a great old city tour and also we gave him a storm of questions and he answered everything for us. thanks free strawberry tours!!
We had a great tour of old Havana. Our tour guide kept in mind that my parents walked slowly and needed a lot of breaks to sit/drink water. We would recommend the tour.
It was perfect I fully recommend it ! Yovanni was a wonderful guide and person ! Hope him the best ! Don’t hesitate to ask him everything a sour Cuba ! Remember that the history of a country is learned by those who leave there and affected by the conditions
Giovanni (sorry if I spelled that wrong!) was great! He answered so many questions for us and provided a lot of local knowledge. Definitely a great way to learn about Havana!
The meeting place was easy to find. The guy arrived on time and he was very informative. My friend and I both nearing 70 didn’t find the walking too much we really enjoyed the tour. Thank you.
Javier was an incredible guide for us last Friday. My wife and I could not have been happier with our experience, we've already recommended the tour to a few friends of ours who are heading to Havana in the coming weeks/months.
An excellent guide who gave us great insight of how the people live and work in the city.
The guide was so nice and very knowledgeable!
He was very knowledgeable. Answered all questions. Kept group together. Very pleasant experience
A very good guide.
The tour was awesome! And our guide was amazing! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Havana.
Great day, knowledgable, friendly guide. A pleasure!
Our guide gave us lots of very interesting information and an insight into how Cuba is developing which we would never have understood if we'd not gone on the tour. The pace was just right and gave us a chance to enjoy the sights he showed us. I'd recommend everyone who visits Havana to take this tour.
Goyo is the best tour guide ever, highly recommended
The voice could have been a bit louder. At some points I had expected a few more historical details. Anyway... we had a good overview!
It was a great tour! I was hoping, though, to learn a bit more about the general history of Havana.
This was a wonderful tour of the historical center of Havana. We walked in several areas around the center and saw the beautiful old buildings in varying stages of decay or restoration. The guide was fun and knowledgeable and we were able to ask lots of questions. This is a very worthwhile tour to take.
Lots of information and answered all our questions. A lot of waking but didn’t feel rushed or difficult. Yoshvani was an awesome guide.
We liked the tour a lot. Our guide was very nice and gave some interesting facts without getting lost in numbers. With 15 people the group had a good size.
Group too big. Internet says max 10. We were way more.
Our guide was amazing!
Our guide was terrific and very knowledgeable!
Excellent program and excellent guide!
Hello- the information our tour guide gave us was good but our group had about 18 people it in so it was sometimes hard to hear. We also had some tourists smoking in our tour and that sort of spoiled what was otherwise a very good day. We should have asked the tour guide to ask people not to smoke at the beginning of the tour as my husband has had cancer recently. It is Cuba so there is no getting away from smokers but other than that it was a very enjoyable day. Our tour guide Nelson recommended a very good restaurant for after the tour and we appreciated this as the food was great. Loved Havvanna- Thank you Nelson you were great
It was our first full day in Havana. The 2 guides were friendly and informative. An excellent overview of the old town which enabled us to revisit those places we wished to view in detail. I cannot fault the tour. It was excellent.
