Discover Havana's Afro-Cuban Culture was OUTSTANDING!
“1st - Our tour guide, Janet was phenomenal! Her explanation of the nuances of the Afro-Cuban history, religion, community, and the people captured your attention from the beginning of the tour until the very end. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants an in depth and personal view into fhe Afro-Cuban culture.

Annnnd we got to meet Salvador! How awesome!!!!”

There’s a lot more to Havana than meets the eye, and we want to show you one of the coolest cultures in the city. On this unique Havana tour, you’ll understand the various syncretic Afro-Cuban religions practiced widely in Cuba, as explained by an English-speaking expert in the field. Our local guide will walk you through parts of central Havana and into the homes of some devotees of the various religions, some of which are similar to voodoo.

That's about all we can tell you (who doesn't love a bit of mystery, eh?!), except we can also tell you this: your Havana culture tour starts and finishes in the spectacular Callejon de Hammel - a small and colourfully decorated alley in central Havana, created by local resident Salvador Gonzáles Escalona. Sit and enjoy a cool drink while you soak up the atmosphere of this famous alleyway, decorated with scrap objects like bathtubs, hand pumps, and pinwheels, and has now become a cultural focal point with workshops for young Cuban children to learn painting.
