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!

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

Booked a full day tour for my 50th birthday. We were met (bang on time) at Parque central hotel by Raphael. After a short drive we had a short but incredibly informative walking tour culminating in a visit to a superb cafe. Returning to the t bird we were driven into the new town and to a cigar factory.

I’ve always dreamed about riding in the back of an old American Car, hood down, smoking a great big cigar as the sights of Habana flashed by. It’s now no longer a dream thanks to Moses the driver of a great big red 1959, US Chevy. Cigar lit, we took off from the area in front of the Parque Central... More

Great way to tour Havana. Great driver and tour guide. Peddlers are a minor pest. Much to see. Market place was interesting but bargain for thr best price.

Even though I had read about this company before I left the UK, it was a happy coincidence that I literally bumped into Rafael in Old Havana because of the beauty of his car! He drives one of only 2 fully original Thunderbirds left in Cuba with its 5.7 litre petrol engine from 1959 it was enough for me. However... More

These guys are fantastic! I travel to Cuba a LOT, I met the owner on my first trip to Havana and have used them every single time I go. The cars are beautiful and well maintained and Radek, Rafael & the others are the perfect way to get to know the city and also to explore other parts of Cuba... More

The Nacional Hotel de Cuba & La Torres Restaurant were excellent as was La Floridita - the bar where Hemmingway used to go for his Daiquiri. The city itself was an eye opener with a lot of poverty - if you are looking for shops (for anything!!) this is not the destination for you!

Fantastic guide! We felt immediately at home.His English was perfect and the trip was awesome. He... More

The tour with locals Radek and Rafael is a great way to see all the sights in just one day/night. They drove us around in their awesome classic cars and showed us the city, introduced us to delicious Cuban food at great restaurants and went out of their way to make our day perfect. The Canon show in the evening... More
