“Cuba is a fabulous place to visit – history, music, dance and wonderful people. The 15 day Majestic tour gets the mix right in terms of cities visited and days spent. If time permits an extension to Vinales is highly recommended. Communications with the company were excellent both pre-departure and right through to farewell SMS at Havana airport. All questions were promptly responded to even though some, in hindsight, may now seem trivial – Cuba is a bit of an unknown. Trip notes etc were also really useful. High praise for Yuri who competently and expediently dealt with minor issues that arose. He skilfully juggled the competing requirements of s small but very diverse group.”
“We’re back home, settled, and things almost back to normal.
Just want to let you know that Javier was the absolute best! We all felt well taken care of. Everything ran smoothly, all our requests/questions met and answered (there were a lot!). The whole family just loved Javier.
We loved Ivan (our driver) too! He drove very well and felt safe in his very capable hands.
Anyways, thank you for a memorable vacation!
“On behalf of our whole group I would like to say ‘Thank you’ for a great experience! We went on the Veradero to Havana day tour on April 30th with Yuneisi and we had so much fun. Everything went smoothly from the drive from Veradero til our return. She was very informative, quickly understood our interests and accommodated these making it not only a really good cultural experience but we also has lots of laughs. We took our time going through Havana and finished later than the planned time but we never felt rushed. We learned so much- tasted cuban street food, drank traditional drinks and had a quick salsa lesson on the street. Despite some rain we can’t say enough how great the day was. You guys keep up the great job!”
“We were on your 15 day Cuba trip a few weeks ago and I just wanted you to know how great Yaniel is. Besides his excellent language skills and local knowledge, he clearly cares deeply about his guests, their comfort and enjoyment. He is a real gem and a true asset to your organization!”
“Im emailing to say thank you so much for your time, advice and patience (with all the questions etc) when planning our trip. I (we) had a great time. Your team in Cuba – Romey, Anilka and everyone else made my stay so much fun in spite of my limited Spanish. Nothing was a problem, ask for dinner and you get a whole bbqd snapper the same evening – doesn’t get much better than that!! Im spreading the news to anyone I know who wants to travel to Cuba.
Thank you to Yaniel, he was an excellent tour guide. I cant speak more highly of him and his skills ‘guiding’ a disparate group of tourists! All my family stays were wonderful, friendly and very accommodating.”
“We did a 10 day private tour with our family (2 adults, 3 yr old, 6 yr old, and Grandma). A great way to see Cuba at your own pace and with a knowledgeable expert! We worked with Locally Sourced Cuba to organize and they tailor made our vacation for us with the places we wanted to visit and the days we wanted to spend in each city. We stayed in 5 different cities in the western half of Cuba (Trinidad, Cienfuegos, Vinales, Havana, Santa Clara). Our guide was Patricia, and she did a great job explaining history in every area (and also as a translator when needed). She went above and beyond to make sure that the Casa Particulares we were staying at were comfortable and met our expectations; she also helped us do and see the things we wanted to that were not pre-planned and to make our trip an unforgettable experience. We really felt like we had an authentic and genuine experience with the people we met, the food/drinks/music we enjoyed, the places we visited, and the history/culture we learned.
Thanks Patricia for the great tour! Highly recommended!”
“We just arrived back from our trip to Cuba of which one week we spent with our amazing guide, Olexis with Locally Sourced Cuba! We were in the 6 day private tour to Havana, Santa Clara and Trinidad and It was an experience that we will never forgot. From our first contact with the company we found them professional, knowledgable and so helpful. Everything they promote and promise was exactly what they delivered. The cities, the transportation, the accommodations, the experiences, the people, the history, everything…was perfect! Olexis took us to the most amazing establishments and I won’t soon forget some of our meals. One final note, Cuba is a very complex country and Olexis was tireless in helping us understand the intricacies and answering our endless questions. When we return, it will be with Locally Sourced Cuba!”
“We can not thank you enough for all your hard work and planning of our last minute trip to Cuba. We had a fantastic time and were charmed, delighted and highly impressed with all services and accommodations, especially the spectacular job done by our guide Olexis. He went above and beyond dealing with our last minute itinerary changes and made all our request happen with a smile on his face. He truly made our trip a one of a kind experience.
We have told many other friends and fellow boaters of your incredible company and hopefully some of them will be planning a trip with you soon.
Thank you again for everything and we hope to return to magically Cuba someday soon to see even more.”
“Katherine and I had a fantastic time in Cuba. It wildly exceeded our expectations. The tour, the excursions, the accommodations were all great. We cannot say enough good things about Yuri. He was a delight; extremely patient, accommodating and flexible.
We look forward to returning soon and reaching out to you again for the logistics.
Thank you and your team for a great experience.
All the best
“We had a fantastic tour and fell in love with the county and the people. We had a great guide, Alexei, and he did everything to make things as pleasant as possible, 24/7. We loved the flexibility in the schedule and the diversity of the trip. Relaxing in Varadero, including sailing & swimming with the dolphin’s, the big-city life in Havana, the French influences in Cienfuegos, the relaxed atmosphere in Trinidad, perfect for horse riding and beautiful beaches .. and the valley of the cigars-makers in Vinales.
We all loved it and will come back many times!
Thank you all and best wishes, Monique, Wendeline, Wessel & Ron”
“Hi Dan, and all at Locally Sourced Tours,
My family and I had a week in Cuba back in January 2015.
Just like to thank all of you and especially our guide Alec who was with us for the whole week. He was fantastic , showed us around, very knowledgeable and a lot of fun and our driver as well. Our whole tour was well organised and the accomdation was fantastic.
Cuba was an amazing place and will need to visit again soon and for longer this time.”
“Thank you very much for taking care of us while being in Cuba, and making our trip a beautiful and memorable journey!
In spite of all the troubles created by delay of Cubana Airlines, we were able to catch up and enjoy the trip.
Thank you so much for your great efforts in making all re-arrangements and providing us with the private tour director. We’ve had a very interesting journey.
It was a real pleasure to meet Anilka and Barby!
We are looking forward to a new encounters in the future and going to refer our friends to you for traveling in Cuba.”
“Just had to write and let you know how much we enjoyed the two tours that you organised for us. Yaniet was an excellent tour host, very good knowledge and English language, but her real skill is making us feel that we were being shown around by a knowledgeable friend.
I have just reviewed your company on trip adviser, probably the best review I have ever written. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wanting to see your beautiful city.”
“Manolo is a great guide, knowledgeable and personable. He exceeded all our expectations by finding dance classes for us and introducing us to his friends and favorite places. He found excellent city guides to show us each destination. He was an all around fun guy who felt like a friend from the start. We loved Manolo! We miss him!!!
WE really, really, really liked not having to figure out how to get places and were very pleased with the private transportation. We flew to Santiago and drove to Vinales and our guide took care of it all.
Since we were a two person tour, all the activities were what we requested and they were a blast.”
“I just wanted to write you a quick email to let you know how wonderful my trip was in Havana. To be honest, a large reason of why the trip was so wonderful was due to my tour guide Barbara/Baby. I didn’t understand the difficulties of traveling in Cuba until I was there and she ensured from the beginning that everything was smooth sailing.
Her English was perfect, she was energetic, she was available to help me 24/7 even on my free day, she was a great story teller and could retell the history and magic of Havana, she also made sure that the tour was tailored to see extra things I was personally interested in and she also made a really big effort to show me the local side of Havana which she didn’t need to do at all. I also really enjoyed her company and never felt that she was simply a guide, but I felt like I could relate to her and ask her any question I thought of – which is also really important when you are traveling in Cuba! She was wonderful and is such an asset to your team – and as a result I would recommend your company to all of my friends interested in traveling to Cuba.”
“I have just got back to the UK from Colombia and Cuba
I wanted very much to tell you how wonderful my guide Deborah was. My tour was with two other couples and we all commented how very lucky we felt to have Deborah as a guide.She was professional and also great fun. Ensuring she delivered what everybody was expecting and wanting.
I would appreciate very much you letting her know what fond memories I have of Havana, thanks mainly to her, and to pass her my thanks again.”
“Cuba is way cool! What a fabulous destination, well worth a visit. Loved, loved, loved Havana, which is even cooler than Miami. It is a place where time has stood still, but the cobbled streets of old Havana and Trinidad de Cuba, horse drawn carriages and classic cars, give the place a unique rhythm and exciting heartbeat. The guide was amazing, she was a young, with a good command of English who was eager to please, but accommodating and professional at all times. The hotels in Havana were particularly great and the rest of the accommodation, perfectly acceptable. I think we might have enjoyed Cuba the most. Vinales was also fun, with a completely different landscape, where we visited a tobacco farm and enjoyed hand rolled cigars. We had very little time to visit the beaches, which are beautiful, and I suspected as much, but all in all, Cuba is affordable, even by SA standards and we wished we had spent at least 10 days there and extended the trip or cut London short.”
“Dany was beyond fantastic.. not only did he support, educate and manage our trip like a pro .. he was so much fun to hang out with. we had two weeks in Cuba and Dany went out of his way to make sure our trip was as unique and fun. His local knowledge and friendly, outgoing personality made the trip seamless .. it was very sad to say goodbye in Trinidad.
All the Casa’s chosen by the guide were extremely friendly , spotless and comfortable. The owners made you feel so welcome and the home cooked meals were sensational. Our guide Dany would often call ahead and let them know what our favourite food was .. it was always there waiting for us after a long day on the road.
All our drivers were great … we had a two week road trip across Cuba and the drive was as enjoyable as the overnight stays.”
“Our Cuba holiday was fabulous. What we wanted and more. Trinidad was the highlight. Hadrian was fantastic. One year older than Catriona they got like a house on fire. Thanks to you and Yadira for a wonderful life experience.”
“I know that my wife Lynn wrote to you recently speaking very positively about the tour you organised on our behalf and of course I would wish to echo that.
Although I haven’t as yet had time to chase it down, I think there is a very positive reference to your company on Trip Advisor and I would like to append some positive words that emphasise the quality of that which we received from you.
We were very impressed with our guide Yaniel.”
“We had two guides on our Locally Sourced Cuba Tour: Lianne in Havana for a day tour, and Manolo for the remainder. Both were very friendly and helped us to understand Cuba and to feel comfortable there.
Most of our main meals were at highly rated restaurants. The food there was much better than expected and excessive at times. We truly enjoyed the flavours and the preparations. The breakfasts at the casas were simple and delightful.
Our driver was great in knowing the road & keeping us on schedule and safe.
The Locally Sourced Tours booking team was excellent in their email assessments and flexibility. The team was clear and always available. Everything occurred on schedule – we enjoyed our time very much.”
“Daryl & I would sincerely like to thank you for a fantastic tour of Cuba.
From the very beginning of organising the tour, your company has been amazing.
Yaniel, our guide, was absolutely wonderful, we couldn’t have asked for a better guide. He went out of his way to ensure everything was perfect for us.
We will recommend your company to everyone we know.
Many thanks again”
I recently spent 10 days in Cuba, and would like to say that I am more than happy with my time in Cuba. I was very pleased with the tour and especially our tour guide Alexis Sanitaguito. During our time there he was very patient, caring and showed a great deal of love for his job. He made the whole holiday the experience that it was.
Thank you and your team on the hard work and for my great holiday in Cuba.
I was on the salsa dance tour in February of 2014 with Raydel, and wanted to share how fantastic this trip was, and how great this company is. I did a lot of research before the trip, and other companies charged far more to see far less (most dance tours just stay in Havana). Raydel was a king among guides. In addition to being an incredible instructor and dancer, he had excellent knowledge of Cuba and was happy to hang out with me as long as I wanted. He even helped out other travelers on several occasions, which I thought was wonderful, and took me to spontaneous outings where I was the only gringo around. I travel a lot, but usually on my own, out of a backpack, on a budget, and usually avoid organized tours. This is one of the best trips I have ever been on, and Locally Sourced Cuba has opened me up for trying other tours (with them, if possible) in the future. Oh, and I got pretty good at Cuban salsa dancing, too!
“We are back home from our fabulous time in Cuba!
I’v been meaning to contact you and tell you how much Geoff and I loved our time in Cuba with Yadira. Thank you so much for organising such a fantastic trip for us with everything we could have possibly wanted. It was so much more than either of us could have imagined and has left a real lasting impression. Even though we’d read up before we went, nothing can quite prepare you for what it would really be like. From the history, to the buildings, to the people, to the music and dancing, to the cars – it was all amazing. There was so much to learn that we left feeling quite tired – but in a good way! Everyday was brilliant with something new and it all went very smoothly. We loved staying in the Casas and the owners where all so lovely and made our stay special.
Thanks again for an amazing experience, I’ve been spreading the word and have passed on your company details to several people already.”
“Olexis, our guide, was great, he made our holiday, we were lucky enough to have him all to ourselves and we had a really good time. He took care of Hazel and myself so well, he was diligent and nothing was too much trouble. It wasn’t like travelling with a guide after a couple of days it was like travelling with a friend. We met other guides along the way and whilst they were all lovely, friendly and welcoming, we still think we struck lucky with Olexis.
I for one will be recommending you both to my friends, on tripadvisor and facebook. We had really high expectations of our holiday ( 2 years in the planning and waiting) and we were not let down. Thank you.”
“We had a fantastic time with Danny, thank you. You’ve set up a really great business and it is making a big difference for guides like Danny and the restaurants and casa’s that he’s chosen to support. He made a real effort to make sure we were as immersed in Cuban culture and food as possible and completely took the stress out of what would have been a lot of admin had we freedom-toured. We can’t thank or recommend Danny enough – he was great. We thought the trip was excellent value for money too.”
“Absolutely brilliant! My hubby did not want to come home and I am recommending it to everyone I meet. We thought our tour was excellent – a comprehensive itinerary and good value. It was really packed with activities so we did enjoy a beach break at the end.
Our tour guide was great fun, well organised, adaptable and responsive to the group’s needs. We had a wide age range but all got on very well and enjoyed the adventure with laughter and cocktails.
The city-specific guides in Habana and Camaguey were also friendly, full of information and great to chat with.
I would also recommend the Tour Operator’s website and email support at LocallySourcedCubaTours which was really useful helping us prepare to make the
most of this trip of a lifetime!”
“Yadira our tour guide was fabulous and we are happy to have found a new friend.
The two weeks we spent travelling through Cuba, we found her to be warm, open, knowledgable and accommodating to ensure this tour was what we wanted.
From our first enquiry to the end of our tour we felt looked after and would highly recommend to travellers looking for something different and an experience to remember.
Sara and Dan”
Thanks to Dan, Yadira and all the people at this great tour company. We had a very interesting and enjoyable month in Cuba and most of the good stuff was due to the people who operate and work for this tour company. Even though our tour was very small in number, it was rich in experience and we left Cuba feeling we’d made new friends. I hope this message reaches others who are planning to visit Cuba.
“We were in Cuba for 2 weeks, the first week on a guided tour arranged through Local Source and the second week at a 4.5 Star hotel. We enjoyed all of our time in Cuba but the private escorted tour that you arranged was by far the most enjoyable. Top points must be given to Yaniel our guide. His excellent English and pride of his country made the vacation most enjoyable – he is an excellent guide and we will recommend him and your agency to our friends.
We found all of the Casas quite acceptable. Although not as plush as our 5 star hotel in many ways they were more enjoyable. All had comfortable beds, air conditioning an ensuite w/c with shower. All served a hearty breakfast and the dinners that we ate in the Casas were all good, better and less expensive than in local restaurants.
All things considered we found our private escorted tour very good value, for little more to staying in our hotel we had our own private guide, private transportation and suitable accommodation.”
“We have been back a few days and just wanted to send you a note of thanks! The Paradisus Varadero was stunningly beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed the facilities. Best beaches we have been to as compared with Mexico and Hawaii. The 3 days in Havana turned out to be warm and sunny so the trip ended perfectly.
Just thought you should know that Leannet was a terrific guide in Havana and immersed us in the local community and culture (at our request) which was most evoking. The day trips, square visits, and old American Car Havana tour were truly magnificent. We enjoyed other activities as well, including a local lithographic artist from whom we purchased some stunning art pieces.
We have passed on your contact information to a few more friends as your services and flexibility were superb!
Thanks again for everything!”
“I’ve completed my journey in Cuba and back to my home town. just want to say thank you to you, the tour guides in Cuba and your company for all the arrangements.
Overall the journey was unforgettable and impressive – small group of people, local fresh food, proficient English tour guide and all Casa’s close to the main tourist area. I’m sure i’ll introduce LSC to my friend if they would go to Cuba in the future.
Wish you and LSC all the best.”
“Our guide, Yaniel was especially good and took good care of me . I usually got the best room!! The excursion up river in Baracoa was excellent as was the botanical gardens and chocolate excursion etc The guide in Baracoa was probably the best local guide we experienced.”
“Just wanted to say that I thought the Locally Sourced Tours trip was brilliant – lovely people, a great standard of casas and all so well organised. Romey and his team delivered in spades, going the extra mile when needed. I will certainly pass the word on!
Thank you so much for a memorable holiday.”
A big thank you to Raydel for an amazing 8 day ‘rum & rumba’ tour!! Great moments and ever lasting memories! Highly recommend and can’t wait to go back!!!
“Back from an amazing 8 day Scuba Tour – had a Great time and met so many great people on this trip and looking to another one very soon! Anilka is an amazing tour guide and highly recommended! THANK YOU FOR THE GREAT TRIP AND SEE YOU SOON!!!”
“I had such an amazing time and everyone on the team out there is so much fun and with so much energy and passion for the country! I’m still bopping to the beat of salsa music back at my desk at work whilst it’s cold and raining outside,
Thanks again for such an excellent, personal and well-organised experience and please do pass my thanks on to the team back in Cuba. Particularly to Raydel, Romey, Anilka and Danny with helping us to find our bearings in such a unique and beautiful country.”
“I am back from my trip to Cuba. I just wanted to let you know my friend Sherry and I both had a fabulous time!
My guide, Lianne, went above and beyond to ensure that we were 100% satisfied, and it was such a pleasure to stay at Luis’s casa. Cuba is such an amazing country, and I would not have visited otherwise if it wasn’t for your patience and reassurance in answering all of my questions and concerns.
I can assure you I will go back to Cuba, will tell all my family and friends, and your company will be our first choice.”
“Just back in Canada now (on my way back to London) after my amazing time in Cuba and wanted to thank you for organizing such a great tour! I think this was the most fun trip I’ve ever taken and I cannot wait to go back! I feel so privileged to have visited Cuba with local guides and to have been able to experience places and people that only the locals would normally see.The LSCT team were absolutely lovely – so warm and friendly and accommodating. I always felt they were trying to ensure that I was having the best time possible and the personal attention is what made the trip so unique. As someone who has never gone on an organized tour (and was slightly hesitant about doing so) this experience has made me see how much fun it can be. I am already recommending LSCT to everyone I know and would be more than happy to help promote it in London.”
We had an amazing time and Romey went out of his way to please us….. You under sold and over delivered. The drivers and the transport was excellent, and we felt very comfortable.
We absolutely enjoyed Habana (need 3 days here min) , so much to do and see, the place is buzzing, and on the change…a pity as in a few years no doubt it will be different. Romey took us to some wonderful restaurants …and the food was some of the best I have had. The prices were extremely reasonable, service amazing.
We loved Cuba and your tour and I would like to take my wife there some day.
Thank you both for a great time!
With many thanks and best wishes.
“Just a note to say thank-you for organising our two day tour of Havana. We had a really good trip made more interesting by having our lovely guide Lianne to show us around and answer our questions. She was very informative with excellent English so I hope she continues to do the tours for you. She was on time and very presentable. I think we covered everything and were fascinated by the buildings, cars and history all around us!!”
“We had a wonderful time and everything went surprisingly smoothly from our airport pick up to departure. We really enjoy meeting Yaniel and spending time with him. He is a delightful, intelligent and thoughtful young man you are lucky to have him working with you. The Havana tour was perfect for orientating us and we loved the trip to Vinales – the Casa as expected was very simple but absolutely spotless!”
Cuba was a fantastic destination and my Locally Sourced Cuba guide, Romey, made the experience that much more special. Romey went out of his way to make every day unique and full of surprises. Organising live music for dinner, an authentic Cuban bbq at his home and an un-planned visit to Vinales were just some of the highlights in a trip that was my favourite yet!
“Absolutely loved my Cuban adventure and have already told all my friends about it. I wouldn’t change a thing. I had high expectations before arriving in Cuba as it was one of my dreams and you kept surprising and amazing me all along the way. I couldn’t believe how each day of the trip kept been even better than the previous one. More than amazing guides and teachers, the Locally Sourced team has often felt more like having friends that wanted to share the best of their culture and country.”
“Just wanted to touch base to thank you and the team for organising my tour of Havana.
The city was incredible as was my guide Yaniel! Couldn’t have asked for anyone better. His knowledge of the city and his willingness to take me to all the boroughs of Havana was greatly appreciated, definitely gave me a rather different perspective of the city.”
“Our guide Yaniel was a delightful young man. His English was excellent and he went out of his way to make our vist as good as it could be. I would recommend him to anyone going to Cuba.”
“Personally, it was my second trip to Cuba but this time I believe I really experienced the real Cuba. Romey and Yaniel were excellent! All the requests of the group were met and more! I would recommend Locally Sourced Cuba Tours to anyone interested in a trip to Cuba.”
“We had a wonderful day with Yaniel, we would highly recommend him as a tour guide, his knowledge of Havana, and Cuban history was superb, and he made it a very enjoyable day.We would like to thank your company and in particular Yaniel for making our visit to Havana very enjoyable.”
“With only two days in Havana I barely scratched the surface of such an unforgettable country. However it doesn’t take long to be swept up in the magic… the old cars, watching the sun go down by the Malecon, drinking mojitos to live music & street performers, the smoke of cigars wafting by – the place is just buzzing. Definitely recommend the tour guide, with such a rich history there are so many questions to answer and their vast local knowledge is unbeatable. Hard to capture the experience of Havana in words but my time there was some of the most memorable of my travels.”
