Roberto fue un chofer y acompañante fantástico. La verdad nosotros nos pusimos en contacto con él a través de esta plataforma y coordinamos todo y cumplió con todo lo pactado. Sus consejos fueron muy atinados, los lugares que nos recomendó tanto para visitar, para comer y también para alojarnos las dos noches que estuvimos en camino. Si bien el viaje fue corto para lo que son algunas estadías, fue todo genial. Muy agradable, la charla, cordial en el trato, siempre preocupado para que todo estuviera bien. Altamente recomendable.

Four of us travelled with Roberto for nine days in January/February 2020 from Havana, Vinales, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Camaguey and returning to Havana.

I started communicating with Roberto via email and then WhatsApp a few months before our trip. It was relatively simple to make the decision to settle on him as our driver for the trip as he packaged together his price and our itinerary much more simply than his competitors, his English was good, his response times were excellent and we were able to settle on an itinerary quite quickly. Also, his price point was competitive.

Just prior to our arrival, Roberto sorted out a couple of communication issues we had with our AirBnb landlady. I especially appreciated this as the situation with her was becoming quite stressful for me and, with Roberto’s help, our trip became something to look forward to and not something to stress over.

Five people in a car for nine days in Cuba could either be the one of most fantastic experiences of your life or it could feel like eight years of hell. With Roberto, it was the former.

First and foremost, he’s an experienced driver. He has been driving for 10 years and knows the roads, the towns, and where to stop for a coffee, lunch and which loos are okay. He’s focussed and pays attention to what is going on around him.

He was willing to share but not over share. We learned a lot about Cuba from him and we were appreciative of that. He was happy to answer our questions but also knew to respect our silence when four tired and sapped Australians just wanted to drive in silence and appreciate the wonderful scenery.

I would travel with Roberto again because of his sense of humour. It was refreshing and relatable. There was quite an age difference between us - our party of four was older - - but none of us felt it.

Roberto never hurried us when we took our time sightseeing or dining. Our itinerary changed en route due to a problem with a hotel booking and he was flexible with that, also assisting us by changing arrangements.

The car is a ‘56 Chevy and is showing some wear. However, it ran perfectly for the entire nine days.

Thanks a lot to Roberto. We spent a great time in Cuba. An amazing country with amazing people, and lots of vintage cars.

Roberto is a very friendly and extremely helpful person. As he spoke English it made our life much easier. He helped us to organise our trip to Varadero and Vinales. He is very organised and punctual with time.

Definitely recommend to others.

Roberto es el MEJOR chofer del mundo !!
Tuvimos la suerte de contar con el los 15 dias de nuestro viaje y recorrer practicamente media isla, desde el primer momento en el que contactamos con el nos transmitio total confianza y nos ayudo mucho con la planificacion de nuestra ruta.
Conoce a la perfeccion cada rinconcito de cuba por eso no es solo un estupendo conductor,que lo es, si no que es el mejor guia que puede acompañarte en tu aventura.
Simpatico, divertido y sobretodo muy profesional, si le conoces te llevaras un pedacito de el contigo.
Roberto espero que volvamos a encontrarnos pronto, mil gracias por todo,
gracias a ti disfrutamos de cuba y de su gente de una manera unica.
Un abrazo enorme con todo mi cariño.

Thanks so much, we spend a super great tour in Cuba.
An amazing country with a super good driver, also the car was super.
We think than without Roberto and Mario our trip was not the same. Now they are a friends for all of us.
They have help us for everything, from the casa particulares to go all together in the disco.
I think I can recommend it to everyone.
Thanks a lot and have a nice holiday in Cuba.
Be sure contact Roberto.

We can strongly recommend Roberto.
He has a wide knowledge about the country and can therefore suggest things to see in different areas.
We were travelling with 2 small children (aged 3 and 5). No doubt that Roberto loves children, he played with them and were caring for their safety and needs.

As a person, he is very social and a optimist. Witch is important since your are travelling multiple hours in a car. He likes music and we had a great time listening to Reggaeton that he introduced us for. Beside that, he would do what he can to help you have the best holiday in Cuba.

We are very thankful for Roberto's help, his personality and his experience as a driver. We could not had choose a better driver for our vacation.

This was our first trip to Cuba. Booking with Roberto was really easy, he responded very quickly to emails. On the day we had booked him for, he arrived right on time. His car was beautiful both inside and out. Roberto was very polite, friendly, chatty and lots of fun. Travelling with him from Habana to our resort was really special. If we are ever back in Habana, we would definitely book with Roberto again.

Roberto fue el taxista perfecto jeje :) responsable y serio , con un coche precioso y cómodo, y lo más importante : conducía muy bien. Muy contentas y si volviéramos seguro que le llamábamos otra vez, nos cuidó cómo un hermano mayor:)????

Viajar con Roberto fue un auténtico acierto y placer. Nos acompaño durante nuestro tour desde La Habana-Playa Larga-Cienfuegos-Trinidad. Muy profesional y puntual. Nos aconsejó perfectamente sobre los sitios de qué ver y hacer. Aprendimos mucho sobre la cultura cubana y sus costumbres y nos ayudó en todo aquello que requerimos. Nos hizo perfectamente de guía y nos mostró cosas que no salen en las guías turistas. Es muy simpático, disfrutamos mucho con sus historias y anécdotas y encima es todo un show-man!!! Aún estamos dando vueltas a muchos de los trucos con cartas que nos hizo!! Agradecerte Roberto todo lo que hiciste por nosotros. Cuba ha sido un viaje genial e inolvidable y entre otras cosas gracias a tí. Desde España contratamos a un conductor y nos volvimos con un amigo. MUCHAS GRACIAS Y SÓLO PUEDO DECIR QUE ROBERTO ES TOTALMENTE RECOMENDABLE.

Abbiamo fatto un viaggio di 10 giorni con Roberto e ci siamo trovati veramente molto bene.
E' una persona veramente molto professionale, simpatica, competente, affidabile, mai invadente. E' molto disponibile e flessibile rispetto alle richieste.
Ha sempre un atteggiamento molto attento nei confronti dei bisogni dei clienti ed è molto corretto a fornire tutte le indicazioni e i suggerimenti necessari affinchè le persone non incontrino difficoltà.
Per tutti noi il viaggio con Roberto è stata un'esperienza veramente positiva.

Roberto respondió rápidamente a todas mis consultas antes de mi viaje, y como tenía la fecha ocupada me ofreció el traslado con su hermano, quien estaba esperándome en el punto de encuentro con una sonrisa (a pesar de mi retraso!!). Fue muy amable y simpático durante todo el trayecto y se ofreció a ayudarnos con todo. Recomiendo altamente este servicio y a Roberto!!

We travelled 11 days with Roberto and it was an amazing trip through the West part of Cuba. Roberto is an excellent driver, prudent and he took very care of us. He showed us places that were not in the books giving us beautiful points of view. He explained us his country through the road. The discussion is very easy (he speaks English very well). And the best part, he is a magician ! We really recommend him.
Like he says : we start as clients. But we end as friends.
Gracias por todo Roberto!
