What to expect

The Cuban Revolution was two for the price of one. Out went a crooked dictator and with him the mob. Havana was a playground for the Mafia, as it raked in millions from gambling and vice. This atmospheric tour takes you in a vintage car back to the 1950s and hotels associated with the gangsters – the Riviera and Nacional.

To get into the mood, you'll hop into a classic car from the era and see some of Havana's top sights. Revolution Square, the crumbling Malecon promenade and the US-inspired Capitol. You'll then come face-to-face with the Mafia's activities at the Hotel Riviera, built by the ‘Mob's Accountant' Meyer Lansky. To complement the casino, he had a coffin-shaped pool built.

Then, it's on to the Hotel Nacional. Learn about the mob's history and check out the celeb-bedecked Hall of Fame. Sip on a cocktail at the bar before dinner in one of the restaurants. Rounding off the day, is the hotel's exuberant Parisien Cabaret show – think feather headdresses and mambo dancing.
