I'm a young professor at the University of Havana, and entrepreneur in tourism and accommodation business. I have a passion for my city and country, and I'll be happy if I can help you to discover the essence of Cuba and Cubans. I studied economics at the University of Havana and became a professor and, later, an entrepreneur. I've always been passionate about the development of my country, and I am a believer in the potential of the private sector. Now I'm leading a team of economists, including university professors and entrepreneurs focusing in property management and the developing of revealing Experiences on the Cuban economic and social context.

About the tour

A visitor can arrive in Cuba through traditional tourism channels, but may lose a sense of the reality standing right in front of him or her. Spending time with a professor and entrepreneur deeply involved in Cuban current issues will help reveal the mysteries of the local economy and private sector.

We would love to invite you to a debate and walk through Old Havana, the ideal place to see the heterogeneity of the Cuban society, the achievements of the private sector, and the huge challenges ahead.

Bring all your questions and we will do our best to help you understand the complexity of our reality.

The tour had a lot of potential as he's an econ professor, but unfortunately too much of the content came from other travelers questions which were completely unrelated to the economy. In my opinion the tour would be a lot better if there was more of a that he stuck to instead of really only answering questions. He's the expert so I would have learned a lot more if he guided the conversation around several key themes.

Response from David Jesus:

Jill! All questions are welcomed in the session, politics and society are impossible to separate from econ contents. You also had your chance to ask... Cheers!

Thouroughly enjoyed the tour, highly recommended! The team was not only flexible with our reservation but they were also super responsive. The tour itself was excellent as it gave a lot of opportunities to discuss the past, present and possible future of the country. Henry, David's colleague from the University of Havana was an entertaining, approachable and highly educated guide answering even our trickiest questions with ease and good humour. Had a fab time. If you want to understand the underlying structure, challenges of this magical place while having a great conversations - look no further. :)
