We had an amazing trip with Roberto! He is a very friendly and politely person and his English is very good.
He drove always very safely and we never felt uncomfortable. He was always in time and everything worked perfectly! We got special advices and information about Cuba and the places we have visited. We got coffee at his home and learned about his children project. Great!!!
And last but not least: We had a lot of fun together!!! Muchas gracias, dear Roberto (f... d... - you know). Take care and all the best for your future!

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.
