Firstly I was planing not to go by this bus but. As my hotel was 10 kilometres from the centre. And there is no regular public transport, the best option is this bus. 10 CUC a day (from 9 to 18) you could hop on any stop climb up sit and listen by the eanglish ang spanish narration. No headphones... More

Don't bother using hop-on hop-off bus tour. Taxi would be more effective and go where you want to go. There was almost a complete lack of commentary in English. Get a taxi and walk around where you want to go. BEWARE! The young woman selling tickets said she would provide them when we got off. I asked why and reluctantly... More

This is only worth doing if you are planning to actually get off at some of the stops. If you just want to tour the city and see the main attractions from afar then the open top classic car 1 hour tours are better value (unless you are going solo) which also does brief stops at a few locations.

My partner and I went on this last year whilst spending 2 days in Havanna. Been on similar buses in other city's and this was nothing like what we expected. Very few tourists on the bus and was mostly used by locals to get around. Only a couple of sites actually worth seeing and spend the remaining hour and a... More

Yes it’s a hop on hop off bus, taking to you to a few of the highlights, The Cemetery, Plaza de La Revolucion, and the Almacenes San Jose Market, but mainly I felt it was a Hotel pick up service, They have a tour guide on the bus who did a commentary in both English and Spanish, but very had...

Although this was not what I was expecting in a Hop on and Hop off open top bus that I am used too, I did enjoy the trip around the city. The poor audio system commentating was in Spanish but if you're just there to see the city from a bus roof top, its worth the trip.

For $10 CUC you can hop on or off the bus. We opted to stay on it for the entire route from Parque Central...we got to see all the highlights and receive information from the narrator and the best part was that if you wanted to go see something you could! You did not have to rely on an actual... More

In general, this is a good orienting bus that shows you all the major destinations in Havana. You can hop on and off for the day but a lot of the stops are at hotels which you don't necessarily want to stop at. Also, the internet indicated a cost of $5 per adult but it's actually $10. Kids ride free.... More

For 10 Cuc this is a great value trip,but remember to take your own guide book, the sound system isn't very good,especially upstairs with the wind in your hair. They had no maps to show where the stops are except the one attached to the inside of the bus downstairs.
