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! « less

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

We booked from the UK and after an initial hitch were provided with 2 shocking pink soft top monsters to spend 2 hours cruising around Havana. It was our first day in Cuba and I cant think of a better way to start a holiday - the teenage kids absolutely loved it, the guide was very knowledgable and had excellent... More

Booked this guy over their website for my husband's birthday and he didn't show up!!!! Luckily our concierge at the Hotel Sevilla managed to book us a great trip with a local guy in a 1950 red Chevrolet convertible which turned out to be cheaper and AWESOME.

Rafael picked us up promptly at 9AM in front of the casa, where we were introduced to our beautiful ride for the day (in the form of a white '59 Chevy convertible). We actually didn't have anything in mind for our day tour, but Rafael made sure it was filled with an explanation of Cuba's rich history and amazing sights.... More

We left promptly @9am from Royal Hicacos Resort in Varadero...and just as others have written this was the "best day/way" for a guided tour into Havana...personally, I felt it was more relaxing/freeing than past car rental experiences in Cuba...albeit one day in Havana is not enough. Blexie was highly recommended by our Cuban friend so it was easy to plan... More

Fantastic history lesson of Cuba, Havana, Castro and Che, just to mention a few. The guide was very knowledgeable and could answer any question sent her way. I wish that I had a recording of the 15 hour tour.It was recorded on a video camera and offered for sale, ready for pick-up the next morning at your hotel. Do not... More
