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 fantastic to see the history and culture in Havana. Kinda got mobbed at first with the pretty girls wanting to have their picture taken with you but after that it was great. The restaurants the guide took us to had the best food I have had in Cuba. You also can't go to Havana without seeing the Tropicana Show.... More

My Bf and I prebooked an Havana Tour with private tour guide Blexie via email blexie100588@gmail.com. It was a wonderful choice. Blexie picked us up at the resort at 8 am sharp and we started our journey. The tour of Havana was beautiful, Blexie was very informative and professional. I would recommend a Havana Tour especially with him... Enjoy!

We visited Varadero in December 2014. To appreciate Cuba, it is essential to leave the resort and visit Cuba. If you must take a bus tour, do it. However, we found that our private tour guide provided a more individualized, personal tour, one that we will never forget. Osniel's english was perfect, his knowledge extensive and he tailored our trip... More

Old buildings and history. The rum factory was interesting..and rum is cheap..cigars not so cheap. If you take a tour into anywhere in Cuba hire a private taxi.

Loved everything about it, buildings, people and atmosphere. Loved the fact that there was no commercialisation. Make sure you visit old Havana.

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...
