This was my 4th trip to Cuba and it did not disappoint, we loved our time in Havana & Cayo Santa Maria. The weather was poor for the first 3 days but at this time of year you run that risk.

All of our friends and family asked about our visit and experiences and we had plenty of photos to share with them. If only we lived in Canada rather than Europe then we would be there all the time.

Your service was great and Lois was amazing, he kept in contact for the three weeks in the run up to the ride and met us at exactly the time required. I felt sorry for Lois as it was a very long trip for us and we only went one way, i would love to know what Lois thought of the trip and would he do it again? In terms of the service that you offer i definitely believe that it was worth it, the cost was 50% less than using a conventional agent and the standard of Lois vehicle was better than most we have had in Cuba.

My only request is that when drivers respond they also describe what the vehicle is, one of the other drivers that responded drove a Peugeot 207 which whilst being a great car i dont believe would accommodate our luggage and be comfortable for a 4 - 5 hour drive.

We arranged our trip from Havana to Trinidad with Elmer by email from the UK and he was bang on time to collect us from our Casa. He's a good driver, knowledgeable, reliable, honest and excellent value.

We needed subsequent taxi journeys from Trinidad to Playa Larga and then Playa Larga to Havana. Elmer was happy to drive from Havana on each occasion and ferry us around for reasonable cost.

More than that, he is a great laugh. You're hiring more than just a taxi driver and our holiday was better for having spent all the hours on the road with him.

I recommend using a taxi in Cuba even on the longer trips. We were a party of 4 and the taxi worked out around 50% more than taking a bus. It was more comfortable, we were able to stop along the way when we wanted and it felt more in touch with the country. If you are going to take a taxi, then I thoroughly recommend Elmer Lores!

i arrived to cuba with my 3 friends. At first we was a little afraid about promissed car and places to sleep, but when we arrived in a place, Lewys met us with amazing old car, introduced with a plans for folllowing 3weeks in Cuba. Plans was about driving, places to drive and places to sleep.
Our driver was Erio, who was not only driver - he was all the time with us, showed to us very many interesting places, what we never could find by ourselfs, he gives more than we asked. He introduced us with a local people life, included Cubian kitchen music and dances:))
That was very amazing and interesting travel, with adventures and many fun. All was organized very well. I suggest to everybody, who decide to come to Cuba and travell all around the iceland , choose Lewys service, it s best of all:)

We traveled from Havana to Santiago de Cuba with Eduardo Torres as our driver, for seven days. Eduardo is a remarkable good driver and companion. He made everything to make our trip very pleasant and made sure that we saw all important sights in the six cities that we passed or stayed during this journey. He was also very helpful in explaining to us many aspects concerning life in Cuba. It was a great luck to have Eduardo as a driver that became our friend. He surely made a difference to our trip to Cuba.

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 !

We got in touch with Reiniel only a few days before we started our trip. He helped us organizing our trip from Cayo Santa Maria to La Habana. We had to change the time of the trip the night before, and there was no problem for him or his driver. The car was amazing, with good air conditioning and plenty of space. The driver was good and we talked a lot during the trip.

Justo was very friendly and polite during the whole trip. We had a very good time with him. He explained us a lot of things about Cuba that allowed us to understand more about the country and its population. His car is very nice and, although we were 5 people with a lot of bags, we found a way to fit in his car. We will definetely recommend him.

We came back from Cuba last week and we drove around in the West part of Cuba (Route: Havana, Vinales, Playa Larga, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Santa Clara, Varadero) in a supernice Chevrolet ('56) with our driver Roberto!

Having your own car VS taking the bus:
We felt that it was really the right choice to have our own car, since it gave a lot more flexibility and thereby we could do more in a short time. (e.g. not just going from city A to city B, but for example taking the car to a nearby park/trekking, or a nearby village, for which you would otherwise have to take a cab).

car rental company VS booking a driver with car over this platform:
I would advise you to try to book a driver who has a nice classical car, as opposed to renting a normal car by yourself at car rental company. Driving by yourself will be less convenient (need to take insurance, need to find the way, etc) and less fun, and probably even more expensive!

Roberto VS other drivers on this platform: Roberto is a very good driver and a reliable person who speaks English well which is a big plus! Besides driving us around he gave us some information and insider tips about the respective places. He is well-connected and can also provide you with contacts for accommodation in case you havent booked anything yet. Long story short, Roberto guarantees a great Cuba trip and we would highly recommend him!

Enjoy Cuba!! :)

While I booked with Roberto, he was not able to make it. He sent an acquantance, Yoandy in his place. Yoandy arrived on time to pick us up and the car was stunning and immaculate. We were with him for 4 days and every time he arrived early /on time for our pick up. He was so friendly and accommodating, we were so pleased with his service and highly recommend!

We contacted Roberto through this website for 10 days in December 2016 until January 2017 for a trip (Varadero, Havana, Viñales, Cienfuegos, Santa Clara). Even before our trip started, Roberto gave a very nice impression and was open for our whole itinerary. During our trip, he did not only was our driver but also became a friend. He helped us with a stay in Trinidad, Pinar del Rio,... Next, he also gave us lots of tips for sight-seeing and nice places to have lunch.

Overall, the communication was always very fluent, which is facilitated by the level of English Roberto has. Apart from that, he was always open for everything we wanted to do and guided us along the way. In summary, we had an amazing time in Cuba and mostly because of Roberto. I would always recommend him. Given the fact that you need to spend a lot of time in the car, you better do it with somebody who is worth your time and money. Roberto clearly is.

Ernesto was a sweet heart. His English was not the best (about on par with my high school Spanish), but he is making an active effort to learn English and we were able to communicate effectively by talking slowly. Ernesto gave us some good recommendations on activities and food and generously drove us everywhere we wanted to go.

The car was comfortable and had enough room for four people and their stuff. Overall it was a fabulous experience and Ernesto was one of the highlights of the trip.

After researching car rental and buses in Cuba, we concluded that the most hassle free mode of transportation for long distances, was a taxi service such as
Yotellevo. It was also more economical . I e-mailed the company, & was put in touch with our driver, Clement Castillo. We emailed each other to arrange the
details of our transportation. Clement was punctual, friendly, spoke English & most importantly a very good driver. He was kind enough to drive back to our drop off point with a passport that was left in the back seat.
We tried to get him as our driver for another portion of our trip. He was already booked but he did call another driver for us. I would highly recommend Clement Castillo as a driver .

We loved the time we spent with Clement! Although he claims his English is not very good, (Russian and French are his main languages) it was good enough that we could understand him.

Clement was friendly, funny and accommodating and so ready to share with us his wonderful knowledge of Cuba, which was a real insight for us on the drives we booked him for. His recommendations and advice to visit places were spot on.

We really enjoyed his company and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Thanks to Lewys and to Erio for unforgettable 25 days in Cuba.They showed us the famous places and real life of Cubans as we wished. We run around the Cuba island more than 3000 km. Our driver was not only driver and guide. He has became our good friend.
