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!

Wow we hit the jackpot. After arriving in old Havana and having a Spanish speaking driver, we though, oh bugar us two Aussies are buggared with our lack of Spanish. Talk about lucky and being in the right place at the right time. After wandering the streets and being hassled a little by the awesome unique cars,we came across a... More

What a fantastic trip! STG tours created a wonderful itinerary that highlighted all the best of Havana! We experienced the culture and history first-hand with the most experienced and friendly tour guide. From the paladar dining to riding in the vintage cars to walking through Old Havana to learning about Santeria to visiting several artist communities, the trip was perfect!... More

Brought back many fond memories. Our party of 5 Canadians, fresh off a cruise ship, had the good fortune to hook up with the gang at Havana History Tours;... More
