Vintage Cuba Day Tour

Be transported back in time on an exclusive, private Havana shore excursion far from the crowds. The classic cars, weathered buildings, and colorful history create an unforgettable Cuba day tour experience, one that will stay with you long after you return home.

Stroll through the cobbled streets of the Old Havana, while the sounds and salsa rhythms of Cuba captivate you and resonate into your soul. Get a rare insider glimpse into the life of Ernest Hemingway in Cuba as you explore Cojimar, the fishing town where he kept his boat, Pilar, and the inspiration for “The Old Man and the Sea.” Not only will you have a delicious lunch at one of our favorite restaurants, but you will also step behind the bar and learn to make mojitos! Next you’ll visit Finca Vigia, which was Hemingway’s Havana home from 1939-1960. End your nostalgic tour of this bygone era with cocktails on the patio of the majestic Hotel Nacional de Cuba, storied to be the playground of Mafia bosses from the 1940’s.

Access Trips pioneered small group excursions in Havana and is recommended by Fodor’s as one of the top Cuba tour operators. Now, for the first time, our carefully curated experiences are available to guests looking for day tours and shore excursions.

On this authentic vintage tour of Havana, you will connect with local Cubans in a meaningful way as you support Cuba’s burgeoning private sector during a pivotal moment in history. You will also get to view the magnificent architecture of Old Havana, cruise the Malecon, discover a neighborhood of Afro-Cuban street art and meet the artist. And did we mention that you will spend the day touring Havana in a vintage 1957 Chevy?

Note: Finca Vigia is not open on Sundays. If you would like to take this tour on a Sunday, please call 1-800-567-9400 or email us and we will work with you on a replacement activity.
