    We had a wonderful time with CeCe. We loved the personal touches she added to the tour, it definitely made the circumstances of the Cuban people hit home and enriched the overall experience for us.

    I did two tours with Adrian and I highly recommend Free Tours by Foot. I learned a lot about the history and culture of Cuba.

    The service provided by OCH was exceptionally good from first contacting the company to hiring a classic car, driver and English speaking guide.
    The email confirmation and meeting instructions were clear & easy, as was the telephone communication when we needed to contact them to change our booking slightly.
    The driver was very professional & we felt very safe.
    Daniela, our guide, spoke perfect English and knew exactly what we wanted to see, which made our visit to Havana the highlight of our cruise.
    We cannot thank you all enough for giving us such a wonderful experience.

    I had the greatest free walking tour with Shelman. He taught me a lot about the history and the current cultural movements of Cuba. The highlight of the tour was the visit to a local center where they help kids via different art projects.

    Absolutely fantastic day around Havana. Douglas was incredible with his knowledge and passion for the city.

    His explanations about Cuban history and politics were amazing - both educational and entertaining.

    Juan-Carlos and Peachy were also great drivers and we had a wonderful day travelling to and around the capital.

    many thanks guys - R&K

    We enjoyed our city tour with our guide Elaine and the driver.
    Elaine provided good information about the city as well as personal perspective/view of Cuba.
    It was Valentin day, Elaine brought a gift for us, which was very nice of her.

    We were in Havana for 5 days to visit our daughter (who is studying there for a semester) and had not really planned on leaving the city. But we decided at the last minute to see if we could take a day trip out of the city on the day that she did not have any classes. We reached out to Locally Sourced Havana Tours, and on very short notice they arranged for a private day tour with an English-speaking guide to Las Terrazas, El Salto waterfall, Soroa Orchid Garden and Cafetal Buena Vista.

    The experience was wonderful. We enjoyed getting to know our guide Lisbeth and driver Norberto and the opportunity to see the Cuban countryside. Having an English-speaking guide allowed my daughter to take a break from being our translator and we all appreciated that. We’re so glad we ventured out of Havana. The lush mountains are beautiful and we even saw 3 tocororo (Cuban National bird).

    We loved Fabio and Ariel! We had a family of six and split into two convertible cars that were in excellent condition. They were both extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and we all felt safe while riding in the cars. It was the best part did while on the island. We saw so much history and so much of the island while with them. It was a great tour and a great day. I would recommend them for any of your tour or vehicle needs while visiting. I would come back just for this experience.

    My husband and I have been very fortunate to travel to many different countries with varying climates and cultures around the world. Cuba, however, was unlike any other place I’ve been and through this tour I had the best travel experience I’ve had in years if not ever.

    My husband and I were able to customize so many different aspects of the tour and greatly benefited from the recommendations of Stefano, our AMAZING guide Roccio, and our awesome driver Joey.

    Stefano was responsive, easy to reach, and helpful every step of the process. Our guide Roccio was incredibly knowledgeable, funny, sweet, and all around just an amazing person. Our driver Joey was so helpful and kind and helped us work on our Spanish.

    From horseback riding in Viñales to drinking daiquiris at La Floridita this was such a fabulous trip.

    I will continue to tell everyone I know about the beauty of Cuba, the kindness of its people, and Stefano’s tour group which makes it possible to experience all that the country has to offer. ❤️

    We had Reniel as our guide. One thing we appreciated was having the opportunity to message with him before we went to Cuba, to tell him of our interests.
    He is incredibly articulate (having been a lecturer in English) and had a fabulous down to earth way of explaining everything.
    He organised a car with our recent wedding in mind and was genuinely interested in our views and answered our questions fully.
    As for the photos - this is an added bonus and he’s a great photographer! We got the photos within a couple of days and loved them all. Cannot recommend highly enough. It’s a pity he can’t be our tour guide everywhere we go!

    bikerentalhavana is owned by Tito as an independent tour operator. he provides bikes and makes all arrangments including, great guide, all meals, accomodations; his rates are very reasonable. our guide was elvis; educated, intellignet; fluent english
    .
    my wife and i went ourselves because no group available for our dates, with car and wagon for bikes. we wanted to see historically famous Trinidad, which is over 200km from havana so we drove part [to bay of pigs] and biked part. spent three nights in trinidad staying at elegant private home with garden in which we could read and relax and eat great breakfasts.
    we then went to Varadero for two nights - vacation/beach community; many opportunities for swimming if you wish.

    as we requested we had fresh fish every night for dinner with salad and one drink included. we left modest tip for all waiters.

    We booked a 2 hour trip three weeks before arriving on a cruise ship. Everything was confirmed on an email and a map was sent to a hotel not far from the terminal. Upon arrival we found the hotel and was immediately met by Rodrigo, who confirmed all the details on the email. Even though we were 10 minutes early the driver was there and he took us to his CHEROLET DELUXE 1951. He spoke perfect English. His name was José. He was so knowledgeable and spoke about every point of interest along the way. He asked us if we wanted to stop at some of the attractions. Some we stopped and and other we asked to just continue. Close to the end of the trip the hood had to be pulled up due to a downpour. All adding to the experience. At the end of the trip José left us directly back to the cruise terminal rather than the pick-up point as it was pouring with rain. The car was very comfortable and run like a dream the entire tour.

    This is one experience not to be missed and it is really good value. The guys from the company we met were friendly and helpful.

    This will be a long review, but I assure you well worth the read.

    The pickup was the lobby of our hotel and we were 15 minutes early. As we were waiting we noticed several chauffeurs who would stand in the entrance and quietly wait. I approached two, as I was afraid or pick up when expire and we would miss our tour.

    A few minutes before the arranged time of 8:00 a.m., this confident handsome gentleman with a great smile strolls in and with a projected voice asks for Troy and Cindy. I really liked that we did not have to guess who he was. English is impeccable which was another concern we had. His name is George (jor-je he was was fine, so was hor-hay).

    After a few minutes of conversation he helped us with our bags and took us out to the vehicle where his chauffeur Robert was waiting. Robert didn't speak English, but right off the bat he held the door open for my lady friend, which I thought was very chivalrous and proper given his role. Robert remained quiet, but very professional and did exactly what was required of him for the entire trip. He drove within the speed limit he kept his eyes on the road and he just had a warm "nice guy" feeling about him.

    The entire way to Havana, George kept us entertained and not just answered my questions he explained them with great detail. He is very knowledgeable and emphatic about his job.

    The weather forecasted for the day of our tour was beautiful in the morning with a chance at thunderstorms in the afternoon so George arranged our tour so we could do the most important parts first, old Havana... No cars are allowed so if we can't walk, we can't see. I liked that he had the foresight to see that and do that for us.

    The points of interest he took us around to were excellent... He really showed us the true culture, and the true Havana which was eye opening and exciting and sad and beautiful and everything in between. To me that's what a "whole experience" your should be all about. He nearly have his life giving us out tour (inside joke, if he's reading this he will laugh to himself). Great job George and Robert!

    If you wanna see the true Havana, feel it's pulse, eat it's food and get a "whole express", I highly recommend this company - and these two in particular.

    5 stars all the way
