I had a very personalized experience with Pablo. I arrived at the photography institute with my Nikon and new lens which was acting up. My news 28-200mm lens wouldn't work so Pablo lent me one if his and we boarded a bus to old Havana. I explained I needed to go back to basics so we focused on how to use my camera in the p rogrammable mode so I could relearn how to shoot with a digital slr. Anyway we had nice jaunt through town and Pablo gave me helpful pointers along the way. It was perfect cfor me as he teaches digital camera use. I only wish I were a better photographer. Nonetheless it was a great way to wander the area.later i was able to show friends of mine around based on the areas we visited. If you can email them and you have your own tour, I recommend you Layout what you want to see and photograph ahead of time and use a taxi for transport as the bus was slow. All in all I recommend any of the tours they give. Getting a chance to talk with Pablo, learn more about photograph and orient me to Old Havana was a worthwhile, even if my camera wasn't cooperating.
