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

We sat on the bus for the entire tour and did not "hop on, hop off". The tour guide spoke a little broken English but there was no detail with the narrative - perhaps we were unlucky. It served a purpose, it was cheap (5 CUCs) and we had a great overview of the city but a private tour we... More

If you are travelling on a package with Air Canada Vacations then you will become somewhat familiar with the logo and green colors of Goviota, as they provided all of our ground transportation including picking us up at the airport and any tours we purchased through our AC vacations rep. The buses are modern, quite clean, and there was always... More

This bus tour just keeps going! It goes all over the city, is clean and regular. The only concern was that it was pretty much impossible to understand the commentator due to the quality of the speakers.

This tour gave a good overview of the city of Havana. The English speaking guide was knowledgeable and the bus stopped to let us out at the important historics points and places of interest. One stop however was for 20 minutes in a huge parking lot with several modern government buildings around us - not at all interesting and did... More

It was very nice for a cheap price to see many places in the city and take great pictures, you see a lot in a short period of time, which I'm sure would have taken me longer if I did it on my own.

I would recommend doing the Hop on Hop off bus tour, as it is only $5 CUC, and it's an inexpensive way to see the sites in Havana. I think other than Central Park, the only other stop worth getting off the bus is at Revolutionary Square. I would be very cautious about standing up on the upper deck of... More

Always one of the best ways to get your bearings around a city, this one didn't dissapoint. I think it must be one of the cheapest we have ever used at 5 pesos. It covered all the areas of Cuban city Havana that we wanted to see and when we got off somewhere we didn't have to wait long for... More

The bus was definitely good to look around La Habana, you can stop and go back up again for the entire day so you get your transportation around the main touristic places. I would recommend instead to take a tour with a local guide though, they explain everything in a different way and you get to understand a lot more... More
