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.
Informative and punctual.

It was most enjoyable to tour with Nelson, he was interiesting and informative. His enthusiam and stories brought some life to the "old" city. We will do a different tour the next time we are in Havana!
Nelson was brilliant! Really nice guy! Great tour!
What a delightful experience our tour guid was great showing us all the places of interest and letting us do it at our own pace taking time for photos and to browse a few shops. As a free tour with donations anyone who is visiting Havana should look you up it was well worth the trip thank you. X. Ps giving some of your donations to charity is commendable we saw the street dogs you sponsor.
It was really informative and educating tour. It was nice to get to know about Havana and Cubans. Thank you!
Rather long. Loads of information to take in.
The guide Nelson was friendly and very well informed. He shared interesting local information which gave us insight into the life and culture of the Cuban people. The route took us to all the highlights of Old Havana. I would sign up for a Strawberry Tour again.
Our guide was very pleasent and knew all the important and interesting places for our tour . As we were about to start the rain poured but he waited with us for over 40 mins before it abated enough to begin . We would recommend you give these guides a try if you want to see Havana on foot with knowledgeable young people .
The tour guide we had during this 2.5 hour walk through Habana Vieja was amazing and very knowledgeable of the city, the history and candid about the culture. The tour is pay what you please and he seemed to be pleasantly surprised by the amount that each member of our group chose to pay - which was still below what the tour is actually worth. GREAT VALUE. Unfortunately, I cannot remember his name, but he hosts the english speaking tour and even gave us insight into his personal daily life. At the end of the trip, he helped us find a great paladares to dine for lunch. All the best to our tour guide and Strawberry Tours!
Great stuff, friendly, easy
Nelson was amazing, informative and nice. I really enjoyed and would recommend ny friends!
