1. Havana Highlights

  • Walking: Moderate
  • Scenic Tour

Vintage American cars purring through the streets. Mile-high murals of revolutionary icons. Camera-worthy colonial monuments. If you’re looking for Havana in a nutshell, this is the trip for you. You get the real ‘rum and cigar’ authenticity of this crumbling capital topped and tailed by tours of the best bits. Your day starts in the modern quarter where sights like El Capitolio – the bigger, younger sister of the White House in America’s Washington DC, and the Malecon – the city’s famous seafront promenade await. You’ll also see Plaza de la Revolución, Revolution Square, where Fidel Castro famously addressed millions of Cubans. Then it’s on to a cigar shop, of course cigars have been synonymous with Cuba for many years now. From here you’ll head to a viewpoint over Castillo del Moro for a cocktail in a bar before setting off on a guided walking tour of Havana Old Town, Habana Vieja. This UNESCO-protected part of town is real time warp stuff. All faded Spanish mansions and plazas lined with grand old churches, it’s a dusty 1950s nostalgia kick.... More details

3. Hemingway In Havana

  • Walking: Moderate
  • Scenic Tour

Ernest Hemingway made Havana his main home in the early 1930s and today, the author is as synonymous with this city as the mojitos he used to drink here. This half-day tour is a great way to follow in his footsteps. Your day kicks off with a scenic drive through Cojimar, a fishing village that inspired Hemingway to pen ‘The Old Man and the Sea’. Next, it’s on to Finca Vigia – Hemingway’s one-time home and now the site of a museum dedicated to him. Although we can’t go inside - you can view the interior through the windows to see how it has been preserved just as the family left it with his personal belongings which really bring the place to life. Then, rounding things off, you’ll head to two of Hemmingway’s favourite watering holes, the iconic La Bodeguita del Medio in central Havana, famous haunt of the author’s, this atmospheric drinking den is rumoured to be the birthplace of the mojito, and La Floridita AKA the cradle of the daiquiri....

5. Cannon Shot Ceremony

  • Walking: Moderate
  • Scenic Tour
  • Refreshment Included

You’ll join a timeline’s worth of audiences when you watch the Cannon Shot Ceremony at Havana’s Fort of St Charles. The thunderous firing of a cannon ball has taken place on the ramparts since the 18th century. It was invented to signal the closing of the fort’s doors. And, since its beginnings, it’s been watched by everyone from the colonial leader of Cuba, King Carlos III, to his revolutionary predecessor, Che Guevara. You’ll start your experience with a tour of the grounds and find out about the 200-year role the building has played in Cuba’s military history. Then, with your ear plugs on standby, you’ll witness the custom itself. With the sounds still ringing in your ears, you’ll have time for a tour of Havana. Wind your way through the Cadillac-lined streets and take in the colonial monuments. Finally, it’s on to Santa Angel, restaurant and bar, in Plaza Vieja for a Mojito or two.... More details

6. Cabaret Parisien

  • Walking: Easy
  • Refreshment Included
  • Limited Spaces

On this trip you’ll take a step back in time to the 1950s, when rum-fuelled bar hops ended in an audience at a Cabaret Parisien. These shows had a movie star following back then and the Hotel Nacionale Cuba’s performances, in particular, attracted Hollywood heartthrobs like Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra and Eva Gardener. The years haven’t changed the productions much – they still tell the story of how Cuban music has been influenced over time. You’ll arrive at the hotel by coach and head to your seats through the art deco architecture of the hotel. Then, it’s show time. Expect to see Cuban dancers with naked navals and sky-high headdresses doing the salsa, rumba and mambo. Prepare to hear a musical style that combines the grumble of African percussion with the strum of Spanish guitars all sung in their native language.... More details
