We were greeted by the coolest guy, Clement, when we landed in Havana! He was patient as we waited for currency exchange, WiFi cards, and drinks at the bar! His hospitality was the best we’ve experienced in Cuba. We even got to stop in Cienfuegos to check out the sights and meet his wonderful family. When we arrived at our destination, we were unsure about the BnB we had reserved so he quickly pulled some strings and got us in another BnB that was beyond what we had set our standards. Clement is who you want to take you around places in Cuba. He’s a safe driver and a wonderful guide!

Eduardo was a fantastic driver and tour guide during our family's 8 day visit to Cuba in July 2019.
From picking us up at the airport, to organising accommodation with local families and our travel itinerary, and suggesting places to eat our time with Eduardo was unforgettable. His jeep was reliable and comfortable. We would highly recommend choosing Eduardo as your driver when you visit Cuba.

Yuniel is a really friendly, funny and very well english speaking guy. He knows a lot of spots around Viñales and he could explained the history/story about it. He is also very spontaneous during the trip to avoid long time for waiting at the attractions. We felt safe during the whole trip. We really can recommend him.

We highly recommend Eduardo. He was punctual and extremely patient with our group of 6 who were all late, very loud and changed our minds every other minute. We went to Vinales for a tobacco plant tour and the next day we went to Varadero. Eduardo even went out of his way to find me a pharmacy that sold tampons given that those are a rarity in the island. He treated us like family and we all felt completely comfortable leaving personal belongings under his care, for instance while we went to the caves in Varadero or when we got off for a quick drink at a Havana bar. We will definitely call him the next time we are in town.

Muchisimas gracias por todo Eduardo!!

Dealing with Raidel was an absolute pleasure. We used his services to take us from Jibacoa to Havana airport but wished we’d booked him for other journeys too. He was very helpful and prompt when responding to emails and arrived to collect us in time and his car was absolutely stunning!!! He really has pride in his vehicle.
I would definitely recommend booking with Raidel and I would use him again if (when) I revisit Cuba. Thank you Raidel!!

This was our first trip to Cuba. Our trip to Cuba was incredible, it is a beautiful country. Booking with Yusmel was easy and convenient. We also communicated with each other before our trip via WhatsApp.
He arrived on time to pick us at the airport. He was awesome our flight was late and he waited for us at the airport. His car is very beautiful and well maintained. He was always on time. He is very good driver and a good person. We met his wife and his two boys.
Yusmel and his wife helped me carry out a romantic surprise on the beach for my wife. They both went out of there way to arranged everything for the planned surprise.

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.

Being in Havana it is probably one of the hardest places to get around. Travelling with my friend we are so lucky we found Lewys, every time he was there on time to the exact minute !! He never let us down. He didn’t treat us like clients it was more like friends. Lewys went the extra mile to make sure everything is okay. I would recommend Lewys to anyone going to Havana and I am going to use him every time I go to Havana. Thanks again Lewys

Jorge Luis was very fast in response messages (on top of providing reasonable prices) and organized our rides very well. We used his service for 4 segments of our Cuba trip: Havana - Trinidad, Trinidad - Camaguey, Camaguey - Cienfuegos, and lastly Cienfuegos - Havana. We were assigned 3 different drivers, and all of them turned up on time or earlier. One of them (the young driver who drove us the first and last segments) also provided excellent local tips on a better spot to swim (with beautiful fishes!) than Playa Larga.

Jorge was a fantastic driver and I would recommended him to anybody. He arrived exactly on time and took me and my whole family from Trinidad to Vinales - a seven hour trip. He consulted with us when to stop and was patient with us when we changed our mind! Felt very safe with him driving my family. Thanks, Jorge. Nick.

Ysmel was our driver during our 10 day tour in Cuba. The communication before our trip went very smoothly and he reassured us that he would take good care of us, which he did. He drove very carefully, in his beautiful car with air conditioning. He even helped us with the organization of some excursions. He was always very friendly and always on time. In short, Ysmel is the best driver you could find. I recommend him to all travelers in Cuba !

José was a punctual and safe driver. He took us on an 8 day trip to Vinales, Cienfuegos, Trinidad and Varadero. He was pleasant and polite at all times.
We were a bit disappointed that we did not get the car featured in his profile picture and I would also keep in mind that there are no seatbelts in a classic car. He was not able to take us to some of the places we wanted to go as the roads were too bad for an old car.

Nous avons visité Moron avec Jannius il y a 2 ans et Varadero cette année. C'est toujours un plaisir faire affaire avec lui car il est vraiment gentil, amusant, respectueux et proffessionnel. Il sait où sont les meilleurs attraits à Cuba et nous raconte toujours plein de chose sur les endroits que l'on visite. Nous le recommandons fortement.

I have been to Cuba multiple times and I ALWAYS use Jannius services for getting around. Wether I am with family or friends he always makes everyone feel safe and makes it a great time. He is funny and friendly and goes out of his way to make sure you are taken care of. I will never hire anyone else and would 100% recommend hiring his services.

Juan took us from Trinidad to Santa Clara and from Santa Clara to Trinidad. He's an excellent driver and took all the precautions to make us feel safe in his hands. We didnt get to "feel" the long tedious length of the trip since he always kept us busy talking about different things, from medicine to politics. We reccommend him 100%. He was very punctual and offered us very competitive prices. Also, he took us to various tourist spots in Santa Clara and answered any doubts or questions we had.

Juan nos llevó de Trinidad a Santa Clara y de Santa Clara a Trinidad. Es un excelente conductor, yo tomó todas las precauciones para que nos sintieramos seguros en sus manos. No se sintió el largo tramo hasta los destinos ya que siempre nos mantenía despiertos conversando con nosotros de distintos temas desde la medicina hasta la política. Lo recomendamos 100%. Fue muy puntual y nos ofreció precios muy razonables. Además, nos llevó a varios lugares turísticos en Santa Clara y contestó cualquier duda o pregunta que teníamos.

Daniel was a great driver. Very knowledgeable about Cuba. He was very friendly, down to earth, and welcoming. He made my trip to Viñales with my 2 friends one to remember bringing us to the best tourist spots and giving us an authentic Cuban experience. His rate is very reasonable and he even ended up bringing my friends and I to the airport for departure a few days after our initial trip. He is very trustworthy and a hard worker. I would recommend him to others and look forward to working with him again in the future!

We booked Clement to pick us up from our Casa in Playa Larga and take us to Trinidad. Clement was an excellent driver and drove at a steady speed which made us feel very safe. A lot of the other taxi drivers in Cuba drove as though they were in a Grand Prix which had me clinging on to my seat.
He was also an excellent tour guide and gave us a great insight into Cuban life and also took us around Cienfuegos (his home town) en route to Trinidad.

Yusmel was a great driver! He arrived on time and he and his wife conducted a nice verbal tour of sites we passed on our way to Varadero to play golf. The fare was more than reasonable for the time Yusmel invested that day. I will definitely look up Yusmel the next time I visit!

Yusmel is a very nice driver. He was right on time at the meeting poging in Habana and drove us to Vinales. He is a good and save driver. We also met his family, 2 sweet boys and his lovely wife.
Unfortunally he could not do the other trips but he arranged everything for us, so we had another driver to take care of us.
Thanx Yusmel!

We were in Cuba for 14 days and we traveled from our holiday for half the time. We used the services of Lexy Company and our driver was Liorge. He did not
only show us many of Cuba's beauties, but also made excursions and trips perfectly for us and he took great care of us, was a punctual, nice and great companion! All the time we felt safe and traveling by the amazing 1952 Chevy was an experience in itself! If we ever return to Cuba, we will be happy to use the service again!
Thank you very much Liorge and Lexy :)

Johrge is really great driver, easy to make any deak. We went with him on 2 trips: Havana-Trinidad and Trinidad-Varadero, both times he was there on time even 15 minutes before. Really good driver, you can relay on him. Every time we had pause when we want. He doesn't know English very much, but for us that wasn't a problem. I would like to travel whit Jorge again.

We would like to thank Elmer who made our trip a wonderful experience. Our crazy plan was to see almost everything in Cuba from Vinales to Baracoa in a very limited time frame of 12 days; we managed to do so because Elmer is an excellent driver with perfect knowledge of every single pothole and hump of cuban roads; his car also makes a difference, since it is very strong, yet old-fashioned, and equipped with a powerful engine that makes it suitable for the terrible cuban "carreteras", even that from Moa to Baracoa which is only for the brave. Most of all, Elmer is a very cheerful person, very reliable and always on time, and we also took advantage of his precious advice and help for accommodation. If you want to waste your time self-driving and trying to find your way to the next place, feel free, but as far as I'm concerned I'm fully satisfied with Elmer's services which in the end costed only a little bit more than a rental car.

Sandor was an amazing driver during our 2-week trip in early 2019. We went on a round trip spanning Havanna, Vinales, Trinidad and back to Havanna. Sandor was very friendly, accommodating to all of our wishes, patient, reliable and always on time. We loved how flexible he was, which enabled us to plan our trip exactly how we wanted it - Sandor was always there for us. We can 100% recommend Sandor for your trip!

Had an amazing tour with Daniel. We covered 2500km from Varadeo to Gardulavaca. Daniel arranged for us to stay in local family run casa's.Which gave us an insight into the real Cuban life.
We did a 16 day tour: Havana, Vinales, Cienfuego, Trinidad, Camaguey, Santiago de Cuba, Baracoa.
Daniel is a lovely friendly guy that will go out of his way to please.
The country itself is very interesting and diverse. The people are friendly and always have a smile to welcome you. Away from Havana the scenery is ever changing. We swam in rivers. Chilled off in waterfalls. Went horse riding. Hired bikes and cycled 25km. Even had a picnic on a lake. All arranged by Daniel.
Had an amazing time and learnt a lot about the country, that is lost if you just stay in an all inclusive at a big resort.
We are a couple in our 60s and had an amazing adventure.
Thank you Daniel
