Classic City Tour
Havana’s highlights: Vedado – El Bosque – Cemetery of Columbus – Revolution Square – Plaza Vieja Plaza San Francisco de Asís – Colonial Castles – Malecón
Our Classic City Tour is the most popular way to kick-start a visit in Havana. Riding a bicycle is the perfect way to get to know the city in little time. You’ll be taken on an authentic route that goes through the less-frequented avenues and populated alleys the real Cuba!
We go through the authentic city, stopping at sites such as la Plaza de La Revolución, la Plaza Vieja, la Plaza San Francisco de Asís, el Bosque de La Habana, el Cementerio de Colón… to name just a few! After arriving at the historic town center, we take a 20-minute coffee break and then walk to the next square. We restart our ride to see several colonial forts along the bay and then finish the tour with a unique insight of Havana, biking on the Malecón seawall. On our way back, we will stop by a small juice shop in Vedado to grab a delicious and refreshing colourful fruitjuice.
Havana is a vibrant city that gives the impression of being stuck in time: its majestic buildings, lying in ruins, combined with its rich colonial and communist heritage, the hundreds of old cars lining the streets, and the sheer diversity of its inhabitants lend the city a magical energy.
Take this tour to get to know Cuban history and culture and take some great shots of the city while simultaneously gaining a good work-out. You’ll be guaranteed a good orientation in Havana and will receive recommendations as to the best things to do and see there for the rest of your stay.

“A highlight of our week in Havana!”
We saw and learnt so much about Havana and the surrounding neighborhoods in just a few hours! Our guide was awesome. We made friends on the tour that we ended up going for lunch with, and ran in to a couple more times on our trip! We absolutely loved this tour, and would recommend it for anyone who wants to see a lot of Havana in a short amount of time! It's a unique tour where you will see the backstreets of Cuba and get recommendations from a local with good taste! Don't miss out!!
