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

This 2 hour tour is a great way to see all of Havana. You have the option to get off and on at your leisure. I just stayed on for the purpose of seeing all sites in the shortest amount of time. Narration was mediocre but keep in mind, its not a guided tour per se. That's what the expensive... More

We were VERY disappointed with this tour as we were looking forward to commentary on the old buildings and such. Not available. Although we picked the english tour bus, the lady, which had a terrible attitude, was inaudible both in loudness and speech. If you want to pay 5 CUC to ride in a bus - it is ok, take... More

For 5 cuc per person it is a really good option to get a feel for the city and immediate outskirts. Not a lot of dialogue and it is over speakers not headphones so can be a bit hard to hear but definitely worth doing.

It is a nice breezy ride with a route along the Malecon and to outlying areas. However, there are only two stops of interest along the way, a cemetery and an empty concrete plaza (of the revolution) Unless you know which hotel the sights you want to see are close to this is a bit of joke as a hop...

Good for overview of city. Running commentary pretty sparse and only available in lower enclosed area. Upper deck – beware of power lines and tree branches. DO NOT STAND UP while the bus is moving. Travels circuit from Parque Central to Acuario Nacional. 5 CUC for just under 2 hours.

When I'm travelling, I like bus tours for days when I'm too tired to do much walking or active engaging in the city. This tour is one of the worst I've been on. There is no narration - they do not tell you anything about the sites they pass, simply the name of the site. 75% of the stops are... More

Highly recommend you experience this tour as it is a great way to travel throughout many parts of Havana. The commentary can be hit and miss, but to be honest I was more interested in what I could see from the open top deck and all the photos I could take. We had a run in with an Indian tourist... More
