Private City Tour: Walk and Drive (in a Classic Car)
See some of the city´s main attractions with this stylish two-hour ride. This exclusive drive is followed by a one-hour walking tour through the historical and colonial district, Old Havana (Habana Vieja), which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982.+ Read more
It´s a so-called ´panoramic tour´ because you will pass by many landmarks but not enter them. This is a perfect introduction to Havana and to see a little of what Havana has to offer, to revisit it later individually with more time and leisure.
The ride in the classic car will take you along the Malecón, the beautiful seaside boulevard of Havana. Its seafront wall is an important social, inspiring, and romantic spot for all Habanero´s. Except for strolling along the Malecón, there is no other appropriate way to pass this coastal road in style than in a classic car.
You will also ride along the streets of Miramar. This residential area is one of Havana´s most upscale districts. Its stately avenues are lined with embassies, mansions, and towering and flowering trees.
The tour will also bring you to The Revolution Square (Plaza de la Revolución). This large zone encompasses an area of approximately 72,000 m2. The creation of the square was started in 1953 and completed in 1959. It was originally called Plaza Cívica but was renamed to Plaza de la Revolución shortly after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution.
A walk through the historical old town, Habana Vieja, is like a visit to an open air museum. The majority of interesting sights can be explored on foot as the district is predominantly pedestrian.
After the guided walk through Habana Vieja, your tour will come to a conclusion. The return to your hotel is not included but who would want to go back to their hotel now? Enjoy lunch or a drink on a terrace in Habana Vieja and capture the essence of this remarkable city.
After an intensive restoration of the first vintage car (2012), it was simple injustice to sell this new family member, who even had been baptized (Nadine). But the investment had to be recovered and so a hobby became a business, and a passion the daily bread; the private family-enterprise NostalgiCar was born.
More than two dozen of shiny polished vintage cars sparkle early in the morning in the garage, ready to hit the road. Although some original engines were replaced by a more efficient Japanese one, their appealing glamor remains and their original design, pieces and interior are well-preserved and authentic.
We have chosen NostalgiCar for various reasons; their professionalism and passion are the most important ones. Our confidence was corroborated when years later John Kerry, former President Obama and his family, and Madonna also choose NostalgiCar for their personalized city tour in Havana.
For climatic reasons (high temperatures, precipitation), but also to minimize air pollution and solar UV-radiation, NostalgiCar only drives their passengers in (air-conditioned) hardtop roof-cars.
