All fully customizable, new lineup of tours lets cruise ship passengers see the best of Havana and Cuba in vintage cars with local guides, VC Tours reports
HAVANA - March 19, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —
Cuba is not just a beautiful, culturally vibrant country; it is also home to an astounding number of spectacular classic cars. Thanks to locally owned VC Tours, visitors who take cruises to Cuba can now explore Havana and its surroundings in hardtop and convertible vintage cars that make the experience even more memorable.
The company's locally guided, private Havana tours are fully compliant with regulations established by the U.S government's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) under the "Support for the Cuban People" visa program. That means American citizens are free to hop aboard classic cars provided by VC Tours and join the millions each year from elsewhere who enjoy the astounding array of Things to do in Havana Cuba.
From checking out Havana's historic neighborhoods and famed street art to touring cigar factories, taking salsa lessons, and dining at "paladars," visitors to Cuba never lack for ways to spend their time. With VC Tours now offering private, fully customizable tours in beautifully restored classic cars, there is no better way for cruise ship visitors to spend time ashore in Cuba.
"We're happy to announce that we now offer customizable tours perfect for cruise ship passengers who stop in Cuba," said VC Tours co-founder and Chief Operating Officer Enrique Ramirez. "Cuba is truly one of the world's liveliest and most beautiful countries, and we believe there is no better way to explore it than by riding in a classic car. Whether that means checking out all of Ernest Hemingway's favorite spots in Havana or heading out to Varadero Beach, our experienced, professional local guides are happy to tailor each tour's itineraries to the preferences of our guests. With more cruise ship passengers stopping off every year, we're looking forward to introducing many to Cuba in the future."
In 2014, then-President Barrack Obama announced that longstanding restrictions on travel to Cuba by citizens of the United States would be loosened significantly. Although travel for no purpose other than leisure is still prohibited, there are enough exceptions to the OFAC rules that about 140,000 Americans are expected to visit Cuba this year, according to an ABC News report published in August.
VC Tours is one of Cuba's leading private tour companies. With a fleet of carefully restored vintage cars conveying the company's customers, VC Tours makes it easy to experience Cuba's impressive bounty of enchanting urban and natural destinations. New tour packages that cater to the many who visit Cuba aboard cruise ships each year are now opening up entirely new options for VC Tours customers.
