Are vintage cars & guides available in port of Havana?

Recommended Posts

Are you using the contact box at the top right hand side of the web page?

I have had numerous responses and email communication with them, not sure why you are having trouble.

 

They have a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, so they do indeed exist.

That is probably the problem.

 

They have a direct link to contact them at the top right of the landing page, right next to "Locally Sourced Tours". It says "Have a Question" or something like that, you put your email address in, fill in the next box with your question, and hit "send message".

That is how I have reached them. I have not used the address you have.

 

From their website:

support@havanatourcompany.com

We are open Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm

Current time in Cuba is:

1:48pm on Thursday 6th April 2017

Me too! I booked with Nosotros Cubaneamos, which I found on Trip Advisor. Great response time and excellent communication.

Almost all the tour companies I found on internet that offer similar services have about the same price: $60 for 2 hrs, $90 for 3 hrs plus $30 for an English speaking guide. That's the price per car.

How many people can go in the car (i.e. 2, 3, 4)? Thank you!

These are big American cars. 1952 Cadillac, for example. They seat 5, plus the driver. If you need an English speaking guide, in addition to the driver, obviously that would be one seat less for tourists.

Do you know how much she charges per hour/half a day/day? We are a group of four.

 

Do you have her email address?

 

As an alternative....

I recently met a lovely, cultured, (good) English speaking young woman from Havana, with a comfortable, air-conditioned, new Hyundai (size of the 4-door Honda Fit), who would be happy to show some tourists around Havana and vicinity. She grew up in the city and knows it well.

Please let me know if you'd like her contact info. I'd love to see her showing more people around, as she did for me.

(Did you read the part about her having a small car? Not one that would hold 4 passengers comfortably. Maybe for a walking tour?)

Please post a review! Going in July and want to use them.

 

We are going the first week of May and booked a 3 hr vintage car tour with Old Cars Havana. We chose it because it has great reviews in Trip Advisor. Google it, you even get to chose the car you want!

i will be there in 2 weeks, is it necessary to book the cars in advance, or can we just get off the boat and book one there on the spot. We were considering booking the cheapest excursion offered by RC just to get off the boat without any issues then do what we wanted, is this wise or foolish?

You do not need to book an excursion just to get off the ship

Just walk off present your documents as required & off you go

And to add.....

There are several spots around the Vieja neighborhood where the cars wait for tourists, not just "on the spot" near the pier.

You will want to find out when the cruise sponsored excursions are departing and to attempt to avoid those times. They are likely to get priority and will cause lines at immigration.

For what it's worth, there are two very similarly named outfits, Old Car Tours and Old Cars Havana, and their pages on TripAdvisor add to the confusion. If you follow the links on those pages, the one that is #6 on TA with 238 reviews is Old Car Tours (http://www.oldcartours.com/). The other one is #22 with 48 reviews (http://www.oldcarshavana.com/). Their prices are the same. We booked with Old Car Tours, the process was simple and they responded very quickly.

 

I sent Old Car Tours a reservation request earlier today. Since you indicated they responded very quickly, when should I expect a return email?
