Local Impact: How you will help the local community by joining this tour:

  • By joining this tour you will support local entrepreneurs. As we work directly with private drivers/owners of the cars, and not a state-owned company, the money goes directly into their hands.
  • This tour also helps protect the local natural environment as you visit an ecologically protected area. This stop on the tour also provides a closer look at local culture in the form of Afro Cuban religious practices that happen here.
  • Some of the most iconic things in Havana are the classic cars. Here’s your chance to experience that local legend and get to see Havana in style. On this classic car tour in Havana, you’ll ride in - you guessed it - a classic 50s American convertible.  Head out through the streets of Havana, cruising your way through the suburbs of Centro Habana, Miramar, and Vedado, passing by points of interest such as the Malecon, the glamorous 5th Avenue in Miramar, the American "Special Interests" building, the Anti-Imperialist Square, Colon Cemetery, and the Revolution Square. We also visit the mysterious and hidden Havana forest.  And if you weren’t feeling classy enough, after 90 minutes cruising in a ‘50’s classic’  this Havana tour ends on a high note – with a visit to the famous Salon de los Grandes bar, a visit to the fortification (built to guard Havana during the missile crisis), and finally, walk through the garden terrace of the Hotel Nacional and a cocktail overlooking the Malecon at sunset. It’s a truly iconic experience.  (If you’d prefer to travel as part of a regular group experience, please book our Classic American Car Tour of Havana) This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers.
