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!

Signed up for a day trip to Havana. The host was very knowledgable and friendly. I felt like there was not enough sightseeing . Next time we go we will bus to Cuba and skip the tour.

First of all you make a sanitary stop at a commercial very crowded hell-hole.(they have the best pina-colada there?or is the commission higher?)Years ago we made a stop near the bridge where you had a magnificent view,and saw the vultures flying above your head.When arriving at havana we drove by the "white-house" but the busses can not stop there now,before...

I booked an old Havana day trip by contacting Blexie via his website based on many of the reviews I read here on tripadviser. Blexie wasn't available for the days I wanted so he referred me to Isbel. I was a bit concerned at the beginning because the website doesn't look very legit and they didn't take any payment or... More

Blexie is a fantastic tour guide and we had wonderful day with him. His English is excellent and his walking tour gave us solid orientation to the Centro. He has an extensive knowledge of Cuban history and lots of personal stories from his own childhood growing up in Cuba. He took us in a 1950s classic car to the Vista... More

Went on a trip here organised through Thomas cook. It included an overnight stay as it took so long to get there. We were told it would take 6 1/2 hours on the coach, but it takes 8 hours! Coach was air conditioned though. We were also told our hotel was in central Havana, but it was 25/30 minutes outside.... More

We went on a private tour, to be able to walk quietly through the most picturesque streets and places of the city. We were picked up at the hotel and from Varadero went straight to Havana, we toured most of the places in the historic center, at each stop the driver pointed us to places to visit and we waited...

Just come back from Cuba, and had 4 nights stay in Havana.We used Blexie tours on a recommendation from my sister who used them earlier this year. As we were staying in Havana they still travelled from Matanzas to do the tour and the price was no more expensive than the same tours run from Havana, Our tour guide was... More

We booked with Blexie. Him and a driver picked us up in a 57 Bel Air. Blexie told us about the town he lived in and how the locals live. He explained some history of Cuba while going Havana. We stopped at the highest bridge in Cuba on the way for some photos. In Old Havana, the driver dropped us... More
