Description

Enjoy a day in Havana that will cover all the bases. History, culture, people, and entertainment are all part of a longish but informative day in the city.
Your smiling guide will greet you per your instructions and begin a whirlwind experience that really delivers.

You are in Havana Cuba! Your guide, a well-educated local, will welcome you with a bit of history as you start with a walk. For the next few hours, you will take in the oldest parts of the city while listening to stories and truths about life in Cuba. Your walking itinerary will show you the Plaza des Armas, the Plaza de la Catedral, and the interior of the Ambos Mundo Hotel, where Hemingway had a room above the bar he frequented. There is much to take in and your guide will work at your pace so more than these sights we will not promise during this portion of the tour.

There is so much to see that as the sun gets warmer, we will use taxi bikes to tour areas that are further outside the city center. Two per taxi bike will be informed before beginning the ride as to what you can expect to see. Included in this portion of the tour are views of Prado Street on your way to Central Park, one of the busiest places in the city. This unique setting is home to a 1905 statue of Jose Marti in the center, the first monument dedicated to the poet, writer, lawyer, and fighter for independence. The park is bordered by several hotels as well as the Gran Teatro de La Habana. Your goal is to end at the Fine Art Museum where you will be able to understand the history and growth of the country through its incredible artwork which tells all.

By now you are ready for lunch and we have selected one of two top paladars for some local yet innovative Cuban food. They are lovely and truly an experience beyond expectation. Lunch will include an starter, entrée, dessert, beverages and coffee. Satiated now, you are energized to continue the rest of your day.

Your classic cars are ready and now your view of Havana will be expanded further to see Reina Street, Revolution Square, Columbus Cemetery, a drive through the Havana Forest, the residential district of Miramar, and 5th Avenue. We will include as much as time allows in hopes to see all of these areas before heading back to the city center.

But you are not yet finished with your day here. This experience will have a choice between a Cigar and Rum Tasting or a Cuban Cocktail Lesson, both which take place in Old Havana.

Shore Excursions

By: Laurie


Reviewed on: 30 Mar 2017

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.

MOSTLY EXCEPTIONAL

By: WENDY from MIAMI


Reviewed on: 04 Jul 2018

We did a private whale watching tour which was incredible. The train ride in Sitka which we were not going to do at first was spectacular. Scenery, comfort - a wonderful way to see the area and spend our time. We signed up for a Mendenhall Glacier trip plus Salmon bake. This one was so very commercial and although the glacier and waterfall were above our expectations, a short time was given to walk there and view. This left out two of our party as they could not move as fast as needed to return in the time frame of one hour. Then the BAKE- the food was marginally ok. They were out of the most important SMORES ingredients. It is crazy but that was advertised (we were willing to break our diets ) and we looked forward to them and then disappointed. The people were nice. the area was pretty but that one I would strongly advise friend not to sign up for.

Great experience. The tours of the Louvre, and Notrre Dame were great. The guide even helped me try to get Eiffel tower admission tickets switched after I had booked them on the wrong date.

Summer Hawaii Cruise

By: CGreene


Reviewed on: 17 Aug 2018

I arranged a church group of 55 for a Hawaiian cruise. This was our first time to use ShoreTrips and we had VIP treatment as compared to the mega busloads arriving from the ship/hotels excursions. Many times we had a site all to ourselves and then were leaving when the larger groups arrived. With all of the excitement about the active volcano, we weren't sure what to expect when we arrived on the Big Island. Those taking the helicopter ride raved about the experience and others were amazed to truly explore, taste and see that there is much more to her than only the volcanos. Every guide was lovely and professional, in fact, when I asked my group of to each submit 2 of their personal favorite photos, one was a guide on the last day in Honolulu for the private Pearl Harbor/airport excursion. It was nice to choose a selection of excursions for my group and ShoreTrips truly worked hard to make every trip come to fruition. Highly recommend all types of excursions with them.
