We had the most amazing trip with Ricardo. He was so kind, helpful and honest and would very highly recommend him.

3 of us spent 10 days travelling around western Cuba stopping at Vinales, Cienfuegos and Trinidad. Ricardo suggested places to see, arranged tours and guides for us and booked Casa particulars. It was fascinating hearing all about his life, (he is an aeronautical engineer) his Russian wife and 10 Cocker Spaniels!

Nothing was too much trouble for him - he really made our trip. Thank you so much Ricardo!

Ricardo was an absolute gem, he found accommodation for us when our guide books let us down. We went from Havana to Vinales, CienFuego, Trinidad and Santa Clara. He took great care of us, and suggested lovely places to visit. We stayed in some lovely Casas thanks to Ricardo. Very personable and friendly - I really trusted Ricardo and he helped make our holiday very special. Thank you so much Ricardo x

Ricardo was a pleasure to meet and I extend my thanks to him. We had a really smooth transition through our itinerary with him and enjoyed hearing stories and information on tour. Also of his aspirations to sledge in Alaska with 10 pedigree dogs!

He was always on time and offering advice on how to use our options best.
I would trust his judgment and employ his services again at any time, visiting Cuba.

Ricardo Abel es el chófer perfecto. Su coche es cómodo y está en muy buen estado, además cuenta con una silla para niños lo que lo hace super apropiado para familias. Él es una persona interesante que aporta muchísimo a la conversación.

Our trip to Cuba was a complete success and Ricardo and his son, Ricardo Jr., were definitely a key factor allowing us to make the best out of our experience. Ricardo was very punctual at all times and knowledgeable about the top places to visit. The price was really fair for the excellent service. I will definitely recommend Ricardo if your want to make the best of your visit to Cuba in a safely and lovely manner.

My cousin Amar and his wife Amee had recommended Ricardo for our trip to Cuba. The very first day we met him, I had told him that Amar was my cousin and he got very happy! The rest of the trip was great as well! We loved the stories he told us about his travels and his upbringing. He was very fun and always smiling. On our last day in Cuba, I was feeling a little fatigued and he took one look at me and said I'm going to take you somewhere. He took us to Hotel Sevilla and he bought me some coffee to wake myself up. I definitely needed it because my friend and I danced and played some instruments with the live band at the hotel. I'd say it was the perfect ending to our amazing trip! We'll definitely use Ricardo again in the future!

Ricardo was the best driver we could ask for! He was patient, accommodating, clean and AC controlled vehicle, and a very safe driver. We became friends with Ricardo instantly and we can't see ourselves hiring anyone else in the future but him! Ricardo was an excellent guide, spoke very good English, and we enjoyed taking him out for coffee and learning from a local. Ricardo's rates are very reasonable, so please make sure you tip him extra well because he goes the extra mile to ensure you have a pleasant and safe time in Cuba. We love you "Ricky" Ricardo! - Amar & Amee

We hired Ricardo for 5 days while traveling in Cuba with our 3 year old daughter. He communicated quickly and efficiently with us before the trip. During the trip he accommodated all of our requests- including unplanned stops that always happen when you travel with a little one! Not only was he a safe and courteous driver, but he was also an important part of our Cuban experience. He shared stories with us about his life in Cuba and about the revolution. He is very passionate about Cuba- and we listened intently- choosing not to debate but rather appreciate his insights. This made our experience more authentic and something we will always treasure.

Ricardo was an amazing driver. We said to him, what we want to visit and he organised our 2 days trip, we didn't have to think about anything. Also he told a lot of interesting stories about Cuba's history and nowadays life ! Moreover, he can speak russian ! That's was really surprising, but also very good thing because my father doesn't speak english. I recommended him for my friends, who are going to Cuba next month :) i hope what your organisation have more drivers like Ricardo, because he made our trip much better !
