We are a couple from Germany and booked Diego for trips in Havanna, Trinidad and Vinales. Travelling with him was awesome. We enjoyed the tours with Diego. He knows very good spots and restaurants. Diego is a really experienced and calm driver. We can really recommend him and would like to give 5 star rating. Thanks Diego!

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.

Thanks to Osvaldo and his brother Alex, we had an amazing time in Cuba. We started our road trip with Alex in Havana and went to Vinales, Cayo Jutia, Playa Larga, Cienfuegos, Trinidad and Cojimar from where we drove back to Havana.

Their beautiful, blue, old Pontiac was comfortable and in very good condition, equipped with AC and Bluetooth, so that we could listen to our playlist, which made long drives more enjoyable.

Alex and Osvaldo are highly professional, trustworthy and always on time. Besides Alex provided us with good tips and recommendations for sightseeing during the whole journey. The pick up from the airport was very warm and friendly, it felt like meeting friends.

Also, Alex and Osvaldo helped us out in various situations when we struggled with local conditions.

Further we really enjoyed learning so much about Cuba in hours of conversation with Alex during the drive. Both of the brothers` English is really good.

Thank you, Alex and Osvaldo for this memorable trip. We definitely highly recommend you and your service and hope to return to Cuba one day!

All the best for you!

We made (with my wifee) a 3 day trip with Eduardo from Santiago to Baracoa and back, and had a really good experience. Eduardo is a nice person and we had many interesting talks, he knows the country and gave as many insights on things to do. He is also a careful driver so that we enjoyed the trip. Highly recommended

Hi!! Three of my friends and I spent an incredible week in Cuba, and Eduardo was such a HUGE part of how easy the trip was, filled with beautiful sights and pina colada stops that we would never have seen or tasted otherwise, despite how diligently I'd planned our trip. Eduardo added such wonderful vibes to our experience, was 1000% reliable, became a friend almost instantly, and we miss him and his awesome white ride so much. We could not recommend Eduardo more highly - if you're wondering whether to book him or not, just do it! You won't regret it. We all knew we were in really great hands, and are hoping to book another trip to Cuba soon so Eduardo can show us more of Cuba. We lost the phone with the photos of all of us with Eduardo and the Jeep, but are still looking and will hopefully update this review when we do!!

My husband, two teenage daughters and I were lucky enough to spend a few days in Havana with charming Ismel. Ismel is a kind, understated young man. Ismel was reliable and always punctual.
We first chose his car because it is an enchanting old timer with clean red and white seats and air conditioning. Ismel takes excellent care of his 1957 Buick Special.
Whether you are planning to stay around Havana or make a longer tour, I recommend that you book Ismel. Ismel has become a family friend and we look forward to our next visit to Cuba.

We would like to give our very positive feed-back to Radames. He drove us from Santiago de Cuba to Baracoa and again from Santiago de Cuba to Gibara during April 2018. Both trips were driven safely, comfortly taking the Cuba roads into consideration, and we had no trouble communicating with Radames even though our Spanish is equal to zero and his English is far from fluent. Radames is a quiet but very pleasant driver, and we highly appreciated his service which was also provided at a fair price.

We booked Ernesto to take us from Vinales to Playa Larga. Because Ernesto's car was broken he called our casa to let us know that someone else was going to pick us up. My travel buddy as well as I thought this was a very good service and very considered. When we took a stop along the way Ernesto had also made the effort to come and meet us !!!!! And he also reassured us that our current driver would also made sure that we could visit the mangroves near Playa Larga. So...thank you very much Ernesto for making all these arrangements for us !!!!

After a ten hour flight we were verry happy to see Victor right on time at the airport. He brought us to Havana in a comfortable car and it was very nice of him to help us carry our luggage.
In our experience we received a very good service !

From the very start of our holiday in Cuba, Ernesto was so welcoming and friendly. We really enjoyed being passengers in his lovely car as he drove us about the wonderful countryside. Ernesto was very knowledgable and informative about each place we went to but also great fun to be with. He spoke good English and was happy to leave us somewhere to explore while he waited for us and knew the best places to take us to visit in Havana, Cienfuegos and Trinidad. Ernesto is a very good driver and we felt perfectly safe with him at all times, his car was very comfortable even though some of the journeys were quite long 3-4 hours. We would highly recommend Ernesto if you are looking for someone to drive you around the island and wish him all the best for the future.

I just came back from Cuba and used Yotellevo and would absolutely recommend this service. Our driver's name was Diego and he was professional, considerate, knowledgeable, kind, serious and fun. I traveled with my husband and two teenage daughters from Switzerland. Diego's car was clean and had A/C. I requested two things: A/C and English speaking. Diego's car was perfect; he cleaned it everyday and drove with great care. Our tour was: Havana, Vinales, Playa Giron, Trinidad, Santa Clara and Varadero. Diego was punctual and totally reliable. I would not recommend driving Cuba roads as there are many pot holes and navigating to Casa Particulars is not easy. We loved having Diego with us and he has become a family friend. If you want to experience Cuba, then hiring a driver from Yotellevo coupled with Casa Particulars is the way to go. Staying in fancy resorts and driving yourself around is not experiencing the reality of Cuba in my opinion.

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!

We, four friends, had a beautiful trip around Cuba with Paco and his son, Frank.
We were 6 people all the time in the car but we stayed good. Initially we were a bit afraid about the confort but in the end was above the expectation! If you are 4 person, go without any afraids about the confort! We stayed 3 in the front and 3 in the back.
The car it's amazing! It is a really classical one, a Ford 1951 Club Classic Coupe. It's very rare. As a bonus, exactly this car appear in Fast&Furios 8 at the begining.
The car also have a very good audio sistem and a very big trunk. Also, the luggage can be transported above the car in a rack system.
The car worked perfectly without any problems.
Paco and his son, Frank(21years old) were very nice. Frank speak english good enough.
I really think that it's a very big advantage to go in Cuba with a car like this because you will see Cuba more authentic, even it have a higher price that a normal-modern car.
If I would make a second trip to Cuba, for sure I will go again with Paco&Frank!

Thanks for everything guys, hope to meet again!

Teo, Anca and friends!

I had an amazing time In Cuba. Osvaldo and His brother Alex work together on Tours. Normally you'll have one or the other as your driver; however, we were lucky to have both brothers driven us on our tours (not at the same time). We took trips to Vinales, Verdadero, Trinidad, Santa Clara and Cienfuegos. Their car was very spacious and comfortable. It had A/c and Bluetooth, we were able to pair our phones and listen to our music selection. Besides the comfort of the car, I must comment on the professionalism of these men. They were always on time, even though we were never on time. They had so much patience with our tardiness and so gracious. They were willing to speak and inform us on Cuba and answer so many of our questions. Their English is really good, you can have a decent level of conversation with them. Most of our trip we were driven by Alex. We definitely consider him our friend and will definitely return to Cuba and use his taxi again. I highly recommend these men. They are kind, trustworthy and very cool. Un abrazo fuerte mis Amigos

We met Ruben just after sunset at the arrival of the Terminal 2 at Jose Marti international airport. He was waiting for us holding a sign with our names. The very nice Chevrolet Impala from 1959 took us smoothly up in to the city of Habana.
Ruben speaks well english and has a interesting background.
On our second day, we had a 5 hour Habana tour with him and his Classic Car, it was a good mix of monuments, nature and cuban life discovery.
He is reliable, polite, we highly recommend him and his wonderfull Impala 59.

We spent two weeks in Cuba, visiting a lot of places from Habana to Santiago de Cuba, with our dear Ernesto and his beautiful Chevrolet of 1953, named Hercules! Ernesto, now a friend, was very professional, timely and always attentive our needs, as well as being kind and very polite. He knows every safe way, beaches and alleys in Cuba. His wonderful “caramelito colour” car is very comfortable, safe and unfailing and suitable for any type of road and route. Hercules is very reliable.
A fantastic holiday, made all the better by Ernesto. We miss him!

Lewis was recommended by a close friend who was really amazed by the services received. Then I contacted him prior to my visit and he was very helpful and professional accommodating me and my family.
We were picked up from the airport and taken to a house arranged by him along with dinner. The comfort of his vehicle is incredible, very nice AC to survive the outside heat, roadworthiness to trust in, safety at its highest level and kindness at every moment. There were some tours to Old Havana, Pinar del Rio and Matanzas that I would def recommend to everybody, specially driven and guided by Lewis who knows about Cuba's History, culture and the better places to go, eat, drink and have fun.

We will book his services on our next teip to Cuba and recommend others travelling there to go with the best of all: Lewis. There are no chances at all of been disapointed.

This is a must book servise!!!

Thank you Lewis for the great time and will see you again.

Raúl is a good and safe driver. He knows his way around and is can also function as a guide. He's very punctual, polite and professional. We've had a great time, travelling the east of Cuba: La Habana - Moron - Santiago de Cuba - Baracoa - Cameguay - Varadero in 9 days. SUPER!
I used to drive myself, but since there were no rental cars available, this was a fine (and less bothersome) alternative. GREAT!

I was thinking how to describe in 1 word Ernesto – how to express my sincere gratitude and happiness of having the chance to meet Ernesto, and having him to guide me in discovering and getting to know lovely Cuba. I’d add a second word and say: Ernesto is a “Trago Feliz” :).

Should you look for a nice ride with la Carmelita – Ernesto is your Man.
Should you look for a nice guide to interesting landmarks – Ernesto is your Man.
Should you look for and need punctuality – Ernesto is your Man.
Should you want to leave your belongings in his car (la Carmelita) and with him while you go for scuba-diving or to the beach – Ernesto is your Man.
Should you want to enjoy food and drinks – Ernesto is your Man.

Thanks Ernesto for making my trip to Cuba a “Trago Feliz”!
Looking forward to meeting you again.

We asked Jorge Luis to find and communicate with our family member living in rural area near Cienfuegos (we had no way of communicating with family member), then transport that person to & from Varadero hotel on the days we traveled there.

Jorge Luis was amazing to have accommodated our unique request, and was very trustworthy to transport our family member to us on the dates and times we requested.

We will definitely be using Jorge Luis on future trips to Cuba!
