Alfonso

Before entering the University I worked as a History teacher in a Cuban High School where I revealed my passion for national and universal history. Years later, I enriched my vision of Havana during an internship in a specialized travel agency focused on culture, history, and heritage. Nowadays, I work as an Instructor Professor at the School of Tourism of the University of Havana, lecturing about marketing and destination planning; thus, I combine my two passions in Airbnb. My partner Neivy works with me in this tour. She has a B.A. in Foreign Languages, and masters not only English, French, and Portuguese languages, but also Havana's history, culture, and heritage as she was trained in the same travel agency I was as well. She works as an Instructor Professor at the University of Havana, teaching Linguistics and Translation Studies.
