Owner description: History Trip was founded in 1996. We specialize in sightseeing tours with old-time Praga cars in the historic part of Prague. These tours are very popular with tourist. We therefore have decided to establish a branch in Cuba. We believe it will be a great success. We wanttourists to enjoy the beauty of historical Havana.This Caribbean gem has captivated travelers since Christopher Columbus.It is undoubtedly „paradise on Earth“.La Habana is known for its popular „American cruisers“ that still crisscross the busy streets that give not only Havana, but Cuba, the whole atmosphere of the extraordinary American fi fties. History Trip offers you comfortable and fully refurbished cars. These cars represent the „Elite“, who lived there until 1959. Each car has its own unique history. We are ready to provide a complete travel service for both – individuals as well as for groups.We invite you to the fifties, choose one of the programs offered and plunge into Ernst Hemingway, Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and the Mafia Corleone!

We stayed at the Royal Hicacos and our Butler arranged a tour to Havana with Reidel Cuenco in his beautiful 55 Chevy Belair. ( See Felix at the hotel for contact details) Reidel picked us up promptly at 8.30 and gave us such a fun knowledgable day. He answered all of our touristy questions and is full of knowledge and...

The trip was divided into two---old colonial Havana in the morning, and modern Havana in the afternoon. Unfortunately the weather was not overly cooperative, as we were dodging showers all day. The old town is very interesting architecturally, as it was built so very long ago. It's unfortunate nothing has been done for more than fifty years as it is... More

Havana was quite different from my expectations. Highway between Veradero and Havana were beautiful; many of the historic buildings are well maintained. Loved seeing old model cars. Great history lesson from tour guide. Disliked having to pay attendants to use the washrooms especially when you do not have pesos on you.

Our guide Rafael was so knowledgeable and full of information of best bars, restaurants etc, it would've been worth the cost of the trip just to talk to him. Unfortunately his own car was off the road so we were driven around in a friends Belair. We had a great time, drove around for about 3 hours taking in most... More

This trip albeit a full day is worth it. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and was able to keep us all engaged during this trip. We took a walking tour through old Havana, with the guide telling us about the historical significance. Worth the money.

We booked a private tour with Isbel. The van had A/C and was comfortable for our large group at a reasonable price to take us to Havana from Varadero . His English and knowledge of Cuban history was very informative and enjoyable for everyone. Booking a private tour delivered so much more than we expected and made our tour experience... More

We just got back from Havana, I don't usually write reviews but I had such a great time with these guys that I thought I'd share it. The first day in town we did a 5 hour Havana history trip, Rafael came to the hotel to pick us up, 9 o'clock sharp as agreed, we spent the morning driving around... More

Was the best way to see it - one on one with a personal guide for less than the tour itself and you see much more details
