Reviews from our customers

"My husband Robert and I have just completed a tour of Cuba with Sady and her driver Fidel. 


We could not have wanted for a better guide. Not only was she likeable, but she was professional, punctual, knowledgeable and made our holiday fantastic. Her knowledge of local restaurants and Casa’s was invaluable.


By the end of the tour we didn’t feel like we had a guide - we had a friend !


I would recommend her and Locally Sourced Cuba to anyone wanting to travel to Cuba."

"I would like to share with you how happy the four of us have been with this tour. It was simply fantastic and I don't have words to tell how we loved it and how Oscar has been an amazing guide; he was very nice, very knowledgeable, full of fun and dynamism. I am really glad I found your organization online, everything was perfect. Cuba is an amazing, beautiful, vibrant, interesting country and the Cuban people were very welcoming, sharing, interesting and nice with us.

If there is any place I can let a testimonial please let me know and I'll be happy to do it. Please give my thank you again to Oscar and the whole team.

I’ll definitively suggest your company to my friends and hope to go back to your country very soon.

Take care and thank you again."

"Jerry and I really loved our time in Cuba and that was largely down to our tour guide Dayana.
She quickly developed a great rapport with us and with good humour managed to transition us into the Cuban way of thinking. The drivers that she used where very good - safe and helpful and the accomodation the company arranged for us was of a very good standard - always clean and some with very good cooks willing to produce a delicious meal for us.
I just wanted you to understand how much Dayana went way above what  you might expect from any employee to ensure that the customer had the best experience possible.
We found all the staff, particularly at the Havana Casa fantastic, but Dayana was outstanding.
I would certainly recommended your company and particularly Dayana to anyone travelling to Cuba."

"We were very fortunate to get Daniel. He was really good at his job. His knowledge is amazing. He was most helpful and very patient when asked questions. Nothing was too much trouble for Daniel and he was very good with his organisation skills as a couple of details/venues had to be changed due to the rain. He went above and beyond what a tour guide would normally do for his passengers."

And is such a nice person with a great sense of humour. Honest, accommodating and very professional. We will certainly recommend your company and Jordan to our friends and associates who may be travelling to Cuba.”

I wanted to drop you a quick note to say a massive massive thank you for organising our tour to Cuba for my friends and i for my 40th birthday.

To say we had an AMAZING time is an understatement. Cuba is so beautiful.

From the moment we arrived at the airport where our driver and tour guide Javier were waiting we were so well taken care of! Javier was awesome too. Poor thing put up with us loud annoying aussies with a smile each day haha im sure he had alot of fun also. 

He was so great and knowledgeable and I would highly recommend him to anyone! 

He really did on a few occasions go above and beyond (from fixing a broken phone to taking my sister to a doctor to name a few) and fit into our group perfectly.

His recommendations on restaurants and bars meant that our expectations on food was totally exceeded! We read many blogs about cuba that said the food wasnt great and it ran out early...total rubbish! We had amazing food every night and had no issues! 

So I wanted to thank you so much for handling and arranging our booking. You did such an amazing job.

"My husband Len and I recently travelled to Cuba and used Locally Sourced for our 8 night tour from Havana to Trinidad and back to Havana, with a day trip to Vinales. I just wanted to personally thank your company for a very special organised tour and in particular, our guide Daniel. I am sorry I do not know his surname but he was a wonderful young man who was intelligent, very knowledgeable and extremely courteous. He is a definite credit to your company and should be congratulated. My husband and I were unsure at first of an organised tour as we both are not keen on them, but your tour certainly changed our minds!

Daniel always put us first, making sure we were enjoying ourselves, informed us of the best restaurants and bars, gave us a lot of great information on Cuba and its history and made us feel very comfortable around him at all times. Daniel asked me every morning how I was feeling as I had a cold during our stay, always opened doors for me and always considered our strengths and weaknesses….I couldn’t walk very fast due to a knee injury so he always kept the pace nice and slow for me. Nothing was ever a problem. This was very refreshing and pleasing to see as it is not common practice among young people these days, unfortunately.

I have personally emailed Daniel to thank him for his service as we also did when we left him and will be returning in the next couple of years to see more of the most captivating country I have ever visited (we have travelled extensively around the world). I am hoping Daniel is still in your employment when we do return as I would definitely be requesting him as our guide if he was available."

"I wanted to take this opportunity to thank your organization for a fantastic vacation in Cuba. Both my daughter and I had a wonderful time. Your company did an excellent job at organizing our stay and showing us a great cross-section of Cuban history and culture. Franklin was an exceptional tour guide and really made our trip a success. All of the drivers were also wonderful but we especially enjoyed our time with Fidel. Thank you once again for a truly remarkable vacation.”

"Oscar was amazing. His knowledge and enthusiasm made the trip so much fun! It’s so nice to see someone who loves their job as much as Oscar. There is nothing I would have changed about him or about our experience. I loved my experience and would highly recommend this tour company to all of my friends!”

"I just came home from Cuba. I seriously have to rave about Victor. It was the highlight of my whole trip. He was so kind, knowledgeable and patient with all my questions. I learn so much about Havana, Cuba and the culture just by talking to Victor. He took us all around old Havana and knew all the great spots. The car ride with Blanco was truly a experience. The mojito making class with Harold and the view on the rooftop was the perfect way to end the tour. I have written a review on travel advisor to recommend your company and victor, and will definitely do so to my friends who plan to go to Havana. Thank you for a great experience."

“Oscar treated us as friends, sharing his extensive knowledge of history and culture and patiently answering our many questions as we sought to understand this amazing and fascinating country. His energy and enthusiasm inspired us and he always had excellent suggestions to help us get the most from our free time in each destination. Oscar was an outstanding guide and we will forever be grateful for him making this vacation a truly unique and special experience.

If we had tried to tour on our own, we would never have had the wealth of experiences and the depth of insight into this unique country’s history, culture and people. We would certainly enjoyed Cuba, but nothing like as much as we did in the very capable hands of Locally Sourced Cuba Tours.”

“I recently returned from a 15 day(1/9-1/21/18) tour which was fantastic and would like to thank our wonderful tour guide- Ihosvany and compliment him on making this an unforgettable trip. Whenever we entered a new city Ihosvany was fully aware of the history and was able to share this as well as answer our questions. He also gave us information about where it was safe to eat, considering our unfamiliarly with the cuisine.

He was always sincerely concerned about our health and welfare. Throughout, I would like to compliment Ihosvany on his professionalism, his thoroughness and his sense of humour which made our trip truly enjoyable.

We truly had a wonderful experience in Cuba, and plan to return someday and hopefully have Ihosvany as our tour guide again.”

Yohandro was excellent. He took care of us as group. Very funny dude. Always had us laughing. He was flexible in adjusting the tour to satisfy individuals. Cuba is a beautiful island. Keep it the way it is – the people, culture, music and art are all great.”

“AG was exceptionally knowledgeable, organised and considerate with the ability to tailor the tour to our individual needs. He was also very attentive about providing us with value for money. We were constantly amazed at the detail that AG was able to explain every situation, place or topic during our tour. His knowledge is exceptional.

The ability to have a local guide who could share so much information on so many levels, was an enormous bonus and gave us a greater understanding for how Cuba has become the country it is.”

“We’ve just arrived back from our Cuba visit and simply want to thank you and your team for a most wonderful experience.

The travels and all that went with them was an unqualified success. The hosting, the guiding, the sightseeing and events….everything….was great and exceeded expectation. Your pre departure notes and guidance were excellent and ensured we hit the ground running. Thanks for putting such a good itinerary together for us. A most memorable trip!

We’ll spread the word on LSC.”

“We are back home after a wonderful trip. We all enjoyed our trip although we had to do some changes due to weather and “irma”. We would like to point out our wonderful guide Manolo, who was interesting , had a lot of knowledge, always listening to our hearts and we head real good time with him. We would like also to mention our great and wonderful driver Jhoan, who drives us carefully and safely.
Accommodation: Casa Alta was the best, warm and friendly hospitality.
We had a wonderful and interesting time and on behalf of all my family we thank you all for everything.”

“Your Vivacious Tour in August with Manolo as guide and 12 adventurous travelers was a great experience. He outlined the historical events and made the trip from Havana to Trinidad, Santa Clara Memorial, Cienfuegos, and Vinales interesting and fun. We saw magnificent old architecture, great night outs at restaurants with swinging salsa bands and toured the city in classic old American cars.

Our stays in the Casas was especially good meeting all the family and starting the day with a great breakfast. This tour was fun for all ages and I will be recommending this company for their professionally run tours to Cuba – a country full of highlights!”

“Me and my partner went to Cuba in the middle of August for 5 nights. We decided on this holiday at the last minute so I was kind of in rush to arrange everything however the Locally Sourced Cuba Tours provide everything (airport transfer, meals, accomodation, guided tour and private transfer from one city to the other) so I didn’t need arrange anything, All I needed was to tell them what I wanted to do.

All accomodation was in great locations, nice and clean. The owners are really warm and we felt welcomed, they are very helpful and nice to us. If we needed assistance they are there, otherwise they leave us alone so we could have our own space and felt relaxed there. Throughout out stay, our local guide Frank spend time with us most of the time. He is the best guide we’ve ever had, he is super funny, super kind, and passionate. We had driver a Mr Brito on the way to and from Trinidad. Frank and Brito are the funniest DUO. They are joking all the time, karaoke in the car and we laughed and laughted in the car.

We had very memorable moments with them and this was the best part of our time in Cuba.”

We are not normally ones to write about trips abroad, but the trip to Cuba was extraordinary in light of the amazing services and the extraordinary escort we had.

Apart from the fact that Cuba is a stunning country with warm and friendly people, the whole organization and planning was first class. Two Casas where we were hosted casa alta habana in Havana and casa patricia y oscar in Trinidad were quality in both cleanliness, rooms and especially breakfast. Both are in excellent location. Mostly we enjoyed the hosts themselves who helped in everything.

As far as the car was concerned, all the vehicles that accompanied us were wonderful. The driver Brito is a cordial and professional man who drives very carefully and responds to every request. All with a broad smile and great courtesy.
Above all we would like to note the guide who accompanied us. A guy named Oscar. Aside from the fact that he is an amazingly nice person with a sense of humor, he has immense knowledge of Cuban culture and history. He knew how to adapt himself daily to our desires and to the things that interested us. Took care to take advantage of every free moment and offer more and more things and ideas.”

“Orlen is friendly, engaging and professional. He has a deep knowledge of Cuban history and culture. My family of 5 is multi-generational, so I had some concerns about the ability of my parents (70ish) to participate in some of the activities. Orlen was awesome! He made sure to take care of them and did it in a respectful, encouraging way. When things got a bit tough he slowed down the pace to accommodate the “older folks” without taking away from the experience of the rest of the group. He suggested side excursions for our group when we had scheduled down time. He was inclusive and really went the extra mile to make sure our tour group of 11 was happy. It takes a person with a true heart for people to bring together such a diverse group of strangers and by the end, make us feel like we were just one big family. Locally Sourced Cuba Tours has a gem in Orlen. Our holiday was better because he was our guide.

“We are just home from our 10 day private exquisite Cuba tour organised by Locally Sourced Cuba. I would like to take this opportunity to ensure both the management team of Locally Sourced and potential customers know the truly wonderful service we received from our tour guide Dayana and our driver, Britto.

From first meeting, Dayana was enthusiastic, genuine and made it her mission to get to know us personally. She took us to so many secret gems: restaurants, clubs, evening nights out and unique and quirky drinking dens of Cuba.

We cannot recommend Locally Sourced Cuba tours enough, and if you are lucky enough to get the dream team of Dayana and Britto, you are guaranteed to have an experience you will remember for the rest of your life."

“I am writing to thank you, the company and particularly Yunier for another absolutely fabulous Cuban holiday.

We really appreciated your prompt attention and consideration with regards to the details of our trip. The two new boutique hotels you included (Palacio Azul and the Meson del Regidor) were beyond our expectations and we really felt very special. Both were first class in every way. You made the planning so seamless and your expertise, professionalism and good humour were valued.

We left Cuba with wonderful memories again and will definitely recommend your company to anyone who mentions an interest in traveling there. You should all feel very proud of the wonderful company you have created. We wish you much success going forward and thank you for the fabulous holiday!”

“Yoelys was absolutely wonderful. He was genuine and friendly and spent lots of time with the group, taking us to great bars and restaurants and various music venues. He was so knowledgeable and always had detailed answers to my many questions. His English is pretty much impeccable – he has great vocabulary and a clear accent. He was so kind to me on my birthday, making it really special for us. (And thank you to Romey who helped him out – it was so unexpected and so nice!)

Overall, Yoelys is a lovely person and a brilliant tour guide and Locally Sourced is a great company – the communication from the company leading up to the tour is great, the group sizes are nice and small, the tour was very well organised and set out, the price is reasonable and the company values and philosophy is heartening. We had a wonderful Cuban experience thanks to Yoelys and Locally Sourced.”
