Recommendations Please - tour of Havana

Hi, leaving at the end of the week, spending 3 nights in Havana, and hoping to tie up with a guide arranged by Jorge (thanks Voy). Not sure of the MUST sees, and would like some advice. Only want to do guided tour for one day and spend time on our own for the remainder. Hubby, and 12 yr old daughter.

Want to make sure we see the "best bits".

Any recommendations please.

Have just returned from a fantastic 2 weeks in Cuba. Spent the first 3 days in Havana, where I met up with a guide arrranged by Jorge..... absolutely wonderful guide, many thanks to Jorge and guide, Martha. My only regret is that we did not take up the offer of touring the new Havana for the 2nd day, but both hubby and daughter had wanted to do own thing, although we did manage to see some other attractions.

Spent the rest of the time at the Sol Palmeras in Varadero, although the resort was nice it certainly was not a four star.

Also done the jeep safari, another great day were we managed to see some more of the real cuba.

Have been very busy since returning from Cuba but felt I had to write even a few lines to recommend to anyone and everyone visiting Havana to contact Jorge for a guided tour. Without him explaining everything under the sun from the time of the pirates to the upcoming presidential summit, we would not have had the id depth understanding of Havana, even if we'd read tourist guides. The things he can tell you is amazing. Well worth it!

Hi Vaalie and Kath1804:

I did call my friend Jorge and he asked me to thank both of you for your nice words.

Jorge also asked me to let know Kath that Martha finally married her boyfriend and they are now renting legally a couple of bedrooms for tourists visiting Havana. Little clean place in the heart of Old Havana.

Thanks on behalf of my friends.
