Description

Would you like to explore the less known side of Havana's bay? Then explore them on a nightly, private e-bike tour with a knowledgeable guide.

Our tour guide is waiting for you with the e-bikes in the months from April to September at 19:00 and in the months from October to March at 18:00 in the park Mariana Grajales. It was named after the mother of General Antonio Maceo (1845-96), a hero of the revolution. After a short introduction to the bikes, the adjustment to the individual body size, the education about the condition of the Cuban streets, followed by information about the rules in the Cuban city traffic, we start with the e-bikes in the direction of Bahia de La Habana.

Means of transport in Cuba are usually different from what you are used to, you will soon notice this. The way with our e-bikes leads us in the dusk over the water to the partly forgotten side of the pulsating metropolis La Habana in the centre of the Santeria and the former slave trade. This eastern part of the Bahia de La Habana has been able to preserve its original charm to a large extent and is hardly visited by tourists, as many do not know how to reach this part of Habana. Get ready for an adventure on rather unusual routes.

This route will fill you with impressions of authentic Cuban everyday life. You will learn how the metropolis has protected itself from outside attacks in the past. On the other side of the fascinating metropolis of La Habana, much of the history has been preserved. Stops at some of the most famous and also less known highlights are of course a fixed part of this extraordinary route. The view of Havana with its sea of lights will fascinate you. The city seems to be a completely different one in the dark.

We start in the direction of La Rampa and drive along the former Hilton, which was named Habana Libre shortly after the revolution, and the Hotel Nacional, where the Mafia was mostly at home. Along the Malecon, which, as many say, is the most beautiful promenade in the world, we head straight for the ferry pier of La Habana. There we take a Lanchita, as the Cubans affectionately call their port ferries, which are almost exclusively used by Cubans. This one takes us to the other side of the Bahia. We also visit the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Regla, if it is still open.

The impressions we gather on the way around the Bahia towards El Cristo will remain unforgettable. El Cristo is waiting for us, a view of La Habana that is second to none. We have the opportunity to see the Comandancia del Che with its original furniture, which at this time of day can only be seen from the outside. Afterwards we will go to the Fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabaña and the Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro. In Casablanca we take the Lancha in the direction of La Habana.

Back in the metropolis we will have a little refreshment and some finger food. Afterwards a small ramble through the metropolis, which appears completely different under moonlight, follows on the way to our starting point.
