5 euros each for this boring, over-priced trip bus ride should be avoided at all cost. The bus we took had broken seats, no air-conditioning and exhaust fumes billowing in through the windows. Save your money for the old Chevys and Dodges driving around. Make sure you negotiate the price before you get in though.

Tour starts at 09:00 and ends at 18:00. It costs 5 CUC. The bus stops at many places starting in the plaza, Old Havana, Malecon, El Rampa, Miramar, La Revolucion and yeah check out that cemetery. It is very much on schedule. There are many places of interest you can do a two days tour and if and when you... More

So fun! The tour guide was so fun, friendly, and knowledgeable. I went with my family and we enjoyed seeing the sights and attractions of Habana during the half day tour.

Most tourist attractions are located downtown so while the hop-on-hop-off plies two very long routes, a lot of the places it stops at are hotels and not of real interest to most tourists. The exception is the Plaza Revolución and maybe a couple of beaches. Most people seem to use it as a form of transportation though, getting off at... More

We took the bus to get in areas of the City where you can't walk to from old Havanna. We got a good overview of the City. We also used it to get to the Vedado and Havanna Center to explore these parts of the City. The price of 5Cuc p.P. and for the whole day is ok so we... More

Unlike Big Red Bus Tours around the world, this tour does not have headphones and a full commentary. The lady on our bus occasionally gave out information in English and Spanish but it seemed like she was reading the English as it was garbled and did not make much sense. Just as well we understood the Spanish version better! We... More

We jumped on the open top bus pretty much first thing when we got up and down to Parque Central on our first morning. It was cheap enough at 5 CUC each and it allowed us to grab our bearings a bit and work out some of the things we wanted to visit. The sun was shining which was an... More

This is ok. But could be better. 5 cup for day ticket. More used as a taxi than a tour bus. No clear guides and not regular. Worth it to see the wider Havana It's only £3 so not a big loss

Although the Bus Tour is hop-on and hop-off, you will likely wait a long time before the next bus (or the same one) shows up again. So we chose not to get off at all. A good way to see Havana in about 2 hours. Depending on when you get on the bus near Hotel Angleterre, don't expect to have... More

This bus is really a must if you have time in Havana. Round trip takes about 3 hours (including the bus driver's lunch break of about 40 mins at the market). The cost is very reasonable - 5 Cuc and you can ask for a transfer if you get off the bus so you don't have to pay when you... More
