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

For 5 bucks you can hop on and off this 2 decker bus all day long. Is an excellent way to see Old Havana. You get a great view from the top deck and is a good way to keep cool on a hot day. Well worth it.

If you want to get your bearings and also enjoy the architecture, this is a good trip. There was almost no narration, and no advance stop announcement, so we were never sure where we were. If you know where you want to go, don't want to go to several places in one day, and don't want an hour and 45... More

If you do nothing else in Havana, or if your time here is limited, this one is for you. The starting point is Parque Central in down town Havana, and for 5 CUC (about $6) you can ride the bus all day, taking in the sights. A menu overview, if you like, of the city. Get off at designated stops... More

There are many people offering open-top car trips round the City, but this is the cheapest - 5 pesos for an hours' trip round the whole city. The commentary was on the loudspeaker , rather than headphones and was a bit difficult to follow , but overall this was a very good way of getting your bearings. It says you... More
