If you wish to plan a unique personal itinerary plus ride in a 1950's Chevrolet auto don't look any further and hire Nostalgic Car. Don't be scared by the USA regulations. I first contacted Nidalys 4 months before our cruise to Havana. I wrote what we wanted to do and she made it happen..
We met the Julio our driver at the Hotel Raquel 2 blocks from the cruise terminal , and Nadine a 1955 Bel Air was our ride.We were guided to a great spot to watch the 9:00 Cannon Shot at the Fortress of San Carlos de Cabana which is not on any cruise itinerary.
We were fortunate to spend time at the garage the next day with Julio Alvarez, the co owner of Nostalgic Car. My husband has the same passion as Julio and they got along great as they shared car restoration stories. Our driver continued our excursion to Hemingway's home and Cojimar the fishing village . What a fantastic people to people experience . Thank you Nidalys for helping me plan our brief visit. to Havana.We now have "family" in Cuba and hope we can visit again.

Second time using this car service and really first class ! No haggling with street vendors for a car. Professional driver picks you up at your hotel and takes you for a tour of the city. Loved driving around the city in the old fashioned car!

Also used them to pick me up at the Varadero airport to drive to Habana.

We had the pleasure of using Nostalgi Car for our November visit to Cuba. Our driver/guide Julio Ferro greeted us at the airport and whisked us off to Old Havana. Julio has an extensive knowledge of his hometown and his English is perfect. As mentioned in earlier reviews, we too stopped at the NostalgiCar garage which was really interesting. During our four day stay in Havana, Julio promptly picked us up and took us on extensive tours of the city as well as a trip to the beach. And to top it all off we did get the same car that Michelle Obama rode in while she was in Havana. I saw the pictures to prove it. So cool!!!!

NostalgiCar was recommended by a Cuban friend and we couldn't have been more pleased. Everything about the company was first rate. Nidialys provided excellent communication and delivered even more than he promised. We actually did two tours with them. One was a driving/walking tour of Havana with the whole family and the other was a bar hopping night tour for me and my wife. Both were excellent and our drivers/guides were professional, courteous and knowledgeable. The bar tour was especially memorable. A car picked us up at night and took us to the most incredible, out-of-the way bars that we never would have discovered on our own. It was really a highlight of our trip. If you're planning a trip to Havana, do yourself a favor and call this company. They took care of everything and made it all so special. I should also add that we were in Havana on a Princess Cruise and couldn't be happier that we chose NostalgiCar vs. any of the cruise excursions. It was a fraction of the cost and so much better (based on the experiences of our relatives who took the excursions). Just compare reviews of those excursions to reviews of NostalgiCar and you'll see what I mean. It was the best choice we made on that trip!

Without a doubt, this is the best way to see Havana!! And when I return, this is where I’ll start!! VIPs and celebrities use Nostalgicar and it’s no wonder why. You can get a cab or you can hire a car but it is doubtful you’ll find a better fleet of classic American cars than Nostalgicar! Beautiful automobiles restored in period condition, safe and friendly drivers and very knowledgeable guides! Ask for Oscar (driver) and Juan Justiz (guide). Both speak excellent English and know all the cool places to go that are off the beaten path. Plus, they’re just cool dudes! Our black 1959 Chevrolet Impala was in impeccable condition! Interior appeared to be almost all genuine parts. And it’s the same vehicle Michelle Obama, John Kerry and Ozzy Osbourne used during their respective visits. There’s a white and blue Chevy BelAir that Madonna rode around in. This is where you want to start. Nidialys and her husband own Nostalgicar. She is very helpful! Cant wait to return!
