I spent three days with Alfonso Bianco and his good friend Alberto Arcos. Best decision I made in Cuba, since not only I learned a ton as an artist but also got shown hidden gems plus got entry to places tourists normally can't access, like the National Dancing School and others. Even if you speak Spanish, the enthusiasm, connection and knowledge of the two will benefit anyone. I might add that we also became friends and shared quite a few Mojitos, too. Highly recommended!

I couldn't have asked for a more personal photography experience if I tried. My guide Alfredo Sarabia was prompt, polite, knowledgeable and an over all amazing guide. He took me places that I never would have seen or experienced in my trip to Havana, from a boxing club to a ballet studio to people's apartments with access to their roofs and balconies. I originally thought the price was high until the actual trip was over it was priced perfectly for the experience. I couldn't be happier. Alfredo if you read this, thank you! You rock man!!

Luis Alarcón is a fantastic and relevant photographer but what really impressed me is his skills as a communicator and a teacher. He is very knowledgeable about technical camera things and a real expert in street photography. I learned tons with Luis specially how to deal with locals, highly recommend experience⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Thank you my friend, it was a pleasure to guide you in this photo workshop where the intention was that your eyes were attentive to the wonderful streets of Havana and you learned to capture the essence in the midst of the great amount of action and people that can be seen. We keep in touch and congratulations on your photographs. You have many good ones and that is not easy to achieve :-)

Spent the day with Alfonso Blanco. A completely enjoyable and rewarding time. He opened doors I didn’t even know were there. We talked photography (of course) and a whole lot of other topics too. He was sensitive to my mobility problems and never forced the pace.

You are very kind with your comment. We try to make a photography tour in Havana through the less known and more photographic places, but we also care a lot to make it a human, cultural tour and take care of the photographers who visit Havana for the first time.

I hadn't planned on spending a day of photography in Havana without having prepared it in advance. So when I received the answer for an appointment the next day I was very surprised and delighted. The day was fantastic; I traveled around the city and even another part of the city accessible only by boat to take pictures of places that I would not have found by myself in such a short time. Alfonso my photographer has shown great attention and extraordinary professionalism. Thanks to him and his son-in-law who allowed me to spend such a beautiful time.

Thank you for your comment on our one-day photo tour through the streets of Havana. Whatever country you visit, there is nothing better than having the company of a fixer, it is the way in which you can discover the best photographic places in a new place. I hope you were satisfied with the photographs you took.
