From the moment my sisters and I were picked up from lunch in two beautifully restored 1950’s Chevrolets and driven to NostalgiCar workshop we had an amazing time. The workshop/garage is a hidden gem in a local neighborhood outside of Old Havana. Not only did we get to see some restoration work going on but we met the charismatic owner Julio Alvarez. Words can not describe the passion, joy and knowledge Julio shared with us about his family business. We have a new appreciation for what it takes to be an entrepreneur in Cuba. This stop was one of our highlights of our trip and we are not even car enthusiasts . Every traveler going to Cuba needs to experience NostalgiCar garage and ride in their cars. And when you do, you’ll definitely leave with a smile on your face and say to yourselves that it was so much better than I ever imagined .

We are a family of 9 and booked three perfect 50's cars with guides for an all day tour around Havana, Cojimar and Hemingway's house. One of the highlights of the day was a stop at Nostalgicars garage . The owner Julio gave us a very informative talk about his cars (with an English interpreter). Julio is so funny and obviously loves his business. If you do a tour with Nostalgicars, ask to stop at his car garage/workshop. It's a unique tour opportunity that most visitors to Havana don't get to experience

We were recommended by a friend to hire Nostalgicar during our visit to Havana and we were not disappointed. There were six in our group so we hired two cars; Lola, the pink/white Chevrolet and Nadene, blue/white. We also hired an English speaking tour guide for the day, Elena. We were driven all round Havana, stopping off at all the popular tourist spots for photo opportunities. Our drivers waited and were available as soon as required. Elena was magnificent, extremely knowledgeable and her English was perfect. She recommended restaurants, which were superb. She took us behind the tourist spots and showed us the real Havana. I would recommend Nostalgicar to anyone who is planning to visit Havana. Nidialys was extremely helpful with our booking and Elena an absolute delight and a credit to the company.

About two weeks prior to our departure, I contacted Nostalgicar about booking a tour. I received an email reply within minutes and throughout our correspondence, they were prompt, informative and happy to help when we changed our booking (several times!!)
We chose to take the Rum and Tobacco tour and on the morning of our tour, Lenia, our guide, was punctual and waiting for us in our hotel lobby.
We travelled in the pink Chevrolet Bel Air which was in pristine condition and the driver was polite and always opened our doors etc which was a wonderful touch.
The tour itself was excellent. Lenia was informative and friendly and made us feel extremely comfortable.
We started with a visit to the Havana Club museum where we sampled some seven year rum and were given a tour in English. It's possible to buy rum here and it comes at a reasonable price.
We then continued on to a cigar factory where we saw how cigars where made and got to sample some of the produce!
We were asked not to take photographs inside and we were not allowed to bring our bags into the factory however, we were reassured that they would be safe in the car (which they were). We picked up some cigars in the shop after our tour.
Lastly, we were given a cocktail lesson in a casa called Atelier, where we were taught to make mojitos and Cuba Libres and then enjoyed the fruits of our labour.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Nostalgicar or the Rum and Tobacco tour to anyone. As four young women, we were a little nervous on our first morning in Cuba but by the end of the tour we felt much more confident and comfortable. It was a fantastic experience!

We were on a People to People tour and a friend recommended Nidialys the owner of Nostalgilan cars. He had visited Havana the month before. I emailed Nidialys a few days before our arrival and she said to have our tour guide call to set up a tour once we had a better idea of our schedule. We wanted to take a ride to the beach over by Habana Club to see the sunset and for drinks, drive down "the Fifth Avenue. We rode to the Statue of Jesus overlooking Old Havana for night view and then into Old Havana for dinner. We scheduled the car for 3 hours at $25 per hour. We also invited a two other groups on our tour to join us, so we hired three cars. I rode in the Pink Bel Air "Lola" which was a blast. Nidialys drove us. Julio her husband drove the others in his blue and white Bel Air. They had another car for the third group. They will take you where you want to go. After dinner, they arranged with the restaurant to have a cab take us back to our hotel. The others that went with us told me when we arrived back home it was the best part of there trip. I could not agree more. It was truly a highlight. It was not part of our tour. The owners are so nice! Highly recommend, very safe, and beautiful cars! You will not be disappointed. But have an idea of what you want to do as they do not have planned tours but can give really great suggestions. email nidalys@gmail.com or call 53 5 2953842,

I just returned from a 3 week trip to Cuba. It was a combination of 3 night Havana casa stay, a one week cruise on the Louis Cirstal and a one week stay at the Melia Varadaro resort.
My wife found NostalgiCar Tours through an operator in Havana named Jorge. Our driver for the day was the owner of a rebuilt 1953 Chevy Bel Air whose name was Julio. It was a beautifully restored car both inside and out. Julio picked us up at the appointed time in front of our casa and we headed out into the country to a town called Vinales. He toured us around the countryside and found us a spectacular place for lunch which overlooked the countryside. We had the best ever BBQ chicken. You have to do the research to find out where you want to go and what sites you want to see, then let Julio know. He does the rest. He is an excellent driver and his English is not to bad. His car has been used in movies and he has toured such stars as Beyonce. I would not hesitate to recommend Julio for a nice, safe driving tour in Cuba. He can be contacted www.nostalgicarcuba.com, juliohhd235@yahoo.es or +53 (5) 2819448.

We took out both cars (blue and pink) for a tour around Habana / Havana - there were a total of 6 of us between two cars. A husband and wife team drove the cars for us through Habana. The cars are impeccably maintained, air conditioned, and make you feel like you are going back in time. Truly a treat.

We, four of us, went on three tours arranged by Nidialys in the first week of July. I did my research for excursion through Tripadvisor. I contacted several excursion company and Nidialys responded to my email very efficiently and professionally. We had two Havana tours and one day to Vinales by their beautifully restored vehicles. Both owners, Nidialys and Julio, were very professional guides with lot of patient and care to our need. We had wonderful time with them. Their price are very reasonable too.

I contacted Nidialys prior to our holiday and she answered quickly and efficiently. The tour was great and the pink car (Lola) I requested was beautiful. Nidialys was very knowledgable and showed us parts of Havana we wouldn't have otherwise seen. The highlight for me was visiting Fusterlandia, a Gaudi inspired neighbourhood. I would highly recommend NostalgiCar.

They picked us up from our hotel . There was a tour guide and a driver . The tour guide was so nice the driver had little English but still seemed quite pleasant and polite .We did the Rum and tobacco tour . We where there the week of the 26th so the tobacco museum was closed but we still did the Havana club museum and the cigar museum . Followed by a cocktail class in a Casa paladar . Where we where thought how to make and drank cocktails was a lovely end to a lovely tour
