आप क्या करेंगे

The Cuban Revolution was one of the most transcendental events of the twentieth century in Cuba and Latin America.
During this experience we will visit the places in Havana where the most significant processes of the unfolding of the Revolution have taken place, while we analyze the challenges of contemporary Cuba.
We will begin the experience by visiting the emblematic sites where corruption and the influence of the Italo-American Mafia in Cuban politics during the 40s and 50s contributed to the unleashing of the Revolution. We will then visit the Plaza de la Revolución, the most iconic monument to the commemoration of the Revolution. A special moment will be stopping at La Timba neighborhood, a marginal settlement in the heart of the city, there we´ll talk about the most important challenges of the modern Cuba.
We will finish making a review of our experience and talking about the challenges of the city.
As part of the experience, we will make our way around in a typical remnant of the Cold War that characterizes the transportation landscape in Havana: a 1976 Soviet Lada sedan.

Wear comfortable shoes and clothing. Hat and sun block is advisable

I am a history professor at Havana University. I specialize in the history of Spain and its influence on Latin America. The writings of Cuban author Alejo Carpentier inspire me to frequently walk the streets of Old Havana, which I love to do. I look forward to sharing the history of my beautiful city with you while discussing the country's social and political issues.

At the and we had a better understanding of the past and also the current situation in Cuba. I recommend you this tour if you want to look below the surface and learn more about Cuba.

Very knowledgeable about the topic of Cuban revolution. Brought with him photos to aid in the story. Showed a Cuban personal view of revolution and it's causes. Only issue tour was just past 2 hours instead of the 3 that were in description. I enjoyed being driven in retro Soviet car and shown different locations with connections to Fidel and the revolution.

What was clear from the trip was that Benito has a deep passion for the history of the revolution and a knowledge base to match. As someone who has read and studied the Cuban Revolution a fair amount, I expected to enjoy hearing the story told from a Cuban’s perspective, but did not expect to learn anything new. While I’m still processing everything, I can confidently say that Benito’s tour taught me loads of things I had no idea of. Learning them has reframed the revolution for me. Benito was prepared. The tour was carefully choreographed so that everything lined up perfectly. At the same time, he had no problem going off script and answering contextual questions. I would highly recommend this for anyone. You cannot begin to grasp Cuba until you grasp the revolution. Not only was this accomplished in candid fashion, but I left with a much better understanding of contemporary Cuba as well. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Cuba.

Benito is a historian, a son and grandson of Bonitos, who has taught college-level Cuban history both in Havana and in the US. His English is excellent, and he brings a tablet with him on the history tour to show old photos — and his collection is much, much better than the Museum of the Revolution (although that’s not an especially high bar). We met as scheduled in Central Park. He is a barbuda (bearded one, the revolutionaries were called when they descended stinking from years in the mountains). This does not make him a mindless groupie of the Cuban revolution however. No red stars or Che berets. I was alone with him on the tour and had read two books on the revolution while here (recommended: Tony Perrot’s Cuba Libre. It is a super readable, brisk, funny, and well-researched). I had also done the key museums, so I knew the plot and major characters. My personal view is that if you could repeat history ten times, Fidel would fail nine of them, like Che did when he tried the trick in Bolivia. Fidel got stupid lucky on many, many occasions, which is not to deny his rhetorical and leadership skills, nor his supreme, even pathological, optimism. Once he triumphed and took over the country however, his luck ran out. Thanks in part to folks on his left, he crushed markets of all sorts. He embraced the USSR, which turned out to be both unwise and unsustainable, to put it charitably. The US was in his barbudo face at every step. Benito knows this story super well: the bloody dictators, the fashionable gangsters, the CIA, and the United Fruit Company, which combined all three. He tells the stories of the romantic revolutionaries quite well, often as you walk by the relevant buildings. I met his father, Benito II, and learned about some of the challenges they face (ask anyone here about housing). Benito Santiago sense is that the government has neglected to build more and better housing. Mine is that markets would help, but being from the Bay Area, my case is weaker than I’d prefer. I strongly recommend the tour. It’s brief, fun, very informative, and a good way to better understand the challenges facing modern Cuba.
