Still some scaffolding up around the main dome but locals told me all works should be completed by 2019 to celebrate Havanas 500th anniversary

Had a wonderful time doing a walking tour. This is the way to do Old Havana. There's so many historical points of interest, I was worried I could remember everything. We actually stay in a hotel right outside, which made our trip.

Hurricane Michael delayed our docking in Havana for 8 hours so we missed our scheduled day tour with Authentic Cuban Tour and jumped on this alternative. It was wonderful. Sergio, a teacher, took us on the walking tour of old Havana as the sun set....More

There were multiple people who didn’t leave our bus during the tour. It was difficult to use the steps in the bus (although it’s a very nice, new, air conditioned bus with a restroom, and comfortable seats). I wish I knew... More

You should have no problem. If they ask you at the airport, very unlikely, telling them you are going under the category "Support the Cuban People." Buena Suerte!
