  • Thank you for this information!
    Who do I contact to arrange a tour and train ride?
    Thank you!

    • We will look into it and get back to you.

    • Ron, the author of the video told me that any tourism office would have the information for Industrial Tourism reservations. Just say you want to visit the Central Australia in Matanzas, Province.

  • Not exactly a quiet day out – all that continuous music would make me want to jump off the wretched train.
    On my last Havana visit there was no information at all about Industrial Tourism !!
    All must be now on hold as all international are suspended from Europe.
