We had a customized tour of Havana including History, Culture and Art and our Day with Reynier was perfect. He shared his knowledge and made sure we felt comfortable the whole day. We really enjoyed our day and would highly recommend Reynier as a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your very nice comment. It was fun to hang out with you and show you my city, culture, and history. It was definitely the type of tour I enjoy the most. I hope you make it back to Havana soon.

We took the city walking tour in Havana, and it was great. Our guide, Reynier, was a wealth of knowledge. He customized the tour to our interests and due to tourist crowds, chose an itinerary that allowed us to avoid any large tour groups. We would definitely recommend any tour Reynier is leading.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Jennifer for your kind words. It was a great pleasure to guide you and share some histories. I had a great time walking around and talking to you, guys. Enjoy the rest of your trip and come back soon

Reynier is a local guide from Havanna and is absolutely friendly and has a lot of knowledge about the History. Reynier was walking with us more than 5 hours through Havanna in order to make sure we have a good impression and overview about the city. We also had a lovely stop on a roof top bar with the best mojito. Reynier is really helpful. Thanks a lot!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words. I had a great time showing around my city to you and your family. It is always so good to guide people that are so interested about my country and culture. I hope to see you all back in Havana. All the best in this 2020.

I am so sad that no other Americans will get to experience this tour. It was amazing! Reynier was such an impressive guide. Extremely knowledgeable about cuban history, culture, art and people. He gave us a real view and experience of Havana - from old neighborhood streets, government and cultural key spots, a glimpse of the touristy things... but overall why we think was a true Havana experience! We wish all the Cuban guides the best! Thank you Reynier!

This was probably our 30th tour through Tours by Locals so to say this was our best guide yet is a pretty big compliment because we have never had a bad one but Rey was amazing, he took us to all the points of interest around the city, knew his history and added a lot of personal commentary but the best part was it honestly felt like we spent the day just hanging out with a long time friend. Had a wonderful lunch at a restaurant in his neighborhood, truly had a local experience. A+++ highly recommend Rey!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: After more than 2 years guiding with ToursbyLocals and almost 200 tours delivered I am still loving this job. On of the reason why I love it is because you can find people like Debbie and her husband that make your day so special and interesting. Thank you guys for a great day. I hope you bring your kids, mum and friends to Cuba soon. I am pretty sure it will be another great day. All the best

I was only in Havana for 1 day and wanted a tour guide to show me all I could see in a day. Reynier very much was a great guide and helped me see as much as I wanted to in a day. He speaks English very well and certainly knows his history and is knowledgeable about Cuba. I would very much so recommend him as a tour guide for anyone that is going to Havana!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your very nice comment. I had a great day with you guys as well. I hope you manage to make back to Cuba soon. I am already looking forward to show more of my city and country. If not, see you in the US.

My husband and I had a wonderful time thanks to Reynier. His knowledge about Cuba's history, art, food and architecture is superb! You will come away feeling like you just took a crash course in the beauty of Cuba and its people! I would absolutely recommend him for his sensitivity (he asks about your interest to make the sightseeing unique) and knowledge. Thank you, professor Reynier. Hope we were good students! :-)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a great pleasure to guide such a fun people. Thank you for being so interested in the Cuban history and people, It was a awesome time for me to show you around. Hopefully, I will see you back in Cuba or somewhere in the State soon. You were the best students ;-)

Reynier was an outstanding guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our time that we spent with him in Havana. He was knowledgeable and fun and paced the tour correctly for us. He took us to a great spot for lunch that we would never have found ourselves. We highly recommend him for anyone who is interested in getting a flavor of Cuba. Our driver, also named Reynier, was very pleasant and drove us around in a classic car.

If riding on a tour bus with 50 other tourists doesn't sound that appealing to you, then consider spending an afternoon with Reynier who will give you a true local's view of Havana. Easy-going and knowledgeable we had a great day with this young man getting to know this unique city from so many different perspectives. Money well spent and a most enjoyable experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to write this nice comment. I also enjoyed spending time with you guys and hopefully we will have more time to go around next time. Take many selfies as you can, you are good at it :)

Reynier made our visit to Havana most memorable. He communicated with me via email to come up with a perfect itinerary. Reynier is personable. Within minutes of our meeting, we felt comfortable and at home in Havana. He was agreeable and flexible. When one person in our party announced she'd like to have a tattoo, he made it happen. When another person in our party needed pain reliever, he took us to a pharmacy. He is educated, well-spoken and speaks English well. We highly recommend Reynier.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for such a fun day and of course for your nice comment. Our adventure was special and I enjoyed every second of our journey. Hopefully you will be back soon to continue our party. Next time checking the number on the Tequila bottle ;)

Reynier was an amazing guide! His knowledge of the history, locals, neighborhoods & culture of Havana was outstanding. He treated us as friends from the moment we met. He took us to the places we asked to visit along with many other spots & shared stories, history & details we never would have discovered on our own. We had a 6-hour tour with Reynier & the time just flew by! We highly recommend Reynier for your Havana experience. It was sad to end our beautiful day & hugged each other as we said goodbye.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a nice comment. Thank you so much for your beautiful words. It kind of nice when I have a whole day with people and at the end of the day we had such a nice time that we don't want it to finish. As you said: our day was too short but I will just take it as a way to make sure that we will be going around the city in another time, hopefully soon.

We had the most terrific day with Reynier! He is totally charming as well as being so informed. Unfortunately we had only one day in Havana (not enough) but we did all we could in the time we had. I would recommend Reynier with the highest accolades, he was great and made our short time there completely enjoyable. The driver he had for us was also wonderful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I have such a nice day. Thank you for being so curious and interested in Cuban history, culture and life. It was a great pleasure to take you around.

Reynier is a wonderful tour guide. His knowledge of Havana, the arts and the culture is more than anyone could ask. He will work with you to make your tour however you would desire. We invited our friends on our trip along on our tour. These are very well seasoned travelers and we felt somewhat responsible for selecting Reynier for this important day in Cuba. The friends told us this was the best guide they had ever experienced in over 40 years of travel!! Reynier is truly outstanding!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your very amazing comment. It makes me feel like I have to work hard to keep my tours with high standard for my future tours. It was great to be able to share my knowledge with you. You guys made it easy with your interest and curiosity. All the best

Reynier was very knowledgeable and charming. We asked a lot of questions about what it's like to live in Cuba today and he was very responsive. We were hungry and asked him to take us to a place he would go to lunch and it was the best meal we've had so far! He really enjoys talking about politics and we had an enlightening and engaging discussion. His driver was quiet and charming and the car was spotless!!

We enjoyed viewing Cuba as we entered in topside on cruise ship. Seeing the classic cars & colorful old Havana. Very smooth thru customs & inspection. Very happy to meet our guide Reynier in the square across from port. We conversed a few times prior to our trip & I felt like I met an old friend. He showed us all around & was quite knowledgeable. My husband loved talking to him about the history/politics of Cuba. I loved the people. The children playing in the square & later soccer in the rain.

What a wonderful guide! We were 3 couples with different interest and Reyniers' tour kept us all interested. Reynier is very passionate about Cuba, yet traveled enough to be knowledgeable on world affairs as well. From fortresses being taken, to missile crisis, he had all the answers. From lunch together in that perfect restaurant, to that hidden, not crowded, cigar shop, he knew all the right places. Thanks Reynier for a fabulous taste of Havana!

Great tour for family of four's first visit to Havana. Reynier was excellent. Great communicator about both cultural and social topics. My teenage kids really enjoyed speaking with him. Although it was a walking tour, my wife fractured her foot before the tour and was in a walking boot. Reynier was very accommodating and walked at a good pace and arranged for a car for the afternoon to see more exciting sites. Highly recommend him.

I had no idea about this web site when I began the booking. Over the few months that I began the process Reyneir exchanged a few emails about the tour since I wanted it to be interesting to my 12 year old grandson. To say the tour exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. Reyneir and Carlos his driver provided an intimate look into Cuba, the art and cultural side, history and food and drink. Reynier is one of the best tour guides I have ever used.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for you nice commend. I had an amazing day with you and your grandson. It is always a great pleasure to guide travelers that not only are very interested in the culture and history but also have a lot to say and share. see you hopefully soon.

This was a great tour that went outside of Old Havana and highlighted some of the amazing art in Cuba. A visit to Fusterlandia was amazing as was a visit to the Afro-Cuban art colony along Callejón de Hammel. Reynier was an excellent guide and had a vast knowledge of the art scene in Havana and was an enthusiastic and charismatic guide! Highly recommend this tour and especially with Reynier. He was awesome. He took me to an amazing pasta paladares near University of Havana.

Reynier is a very well educated young man. He showed us Havana on foot and took time to make sure all the places on his excursion plan were seen. We spent 2 hours for lunch that was fabulous and traditional food. The restaurant owners took such great care of our needs and made the experience fun. We went to a cigar factory and had an amazing tour and presentation of the cigar history and making. Reynier picked us up the time and place designated and returned us to the ship in 6 full hours.

Reynier overwhelmed us (in a good way) with facts, history, local politics and much insight into Cuba and Havana. We especially enjoyed seeing the barrio of Jaimanitas and the work of Jose Fuster; that was amazing and something we would not have found by ourselves. We also enjoyed looking back at the view of the city from across the water (by the statute of Jesus). Reynier was flexible and accommodating.

Reynier is great guide for two Americans who were testing the newly allowed opportunity to visit Cuba. He walked us all through the old town areas in Havana with great descriptions of the history and sites. The highlight of our day was lunch in a small hidden cafe that Reynier knew with great local food and beer, and, possibly the friendliest staff in Latin America. We had a great time in a city that still harks back to the 1950's in many ways! Thanks.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment. It is always great when the travelers like the tour and specially my city. I will also let the staff in the restaurant know about your beautiful comment. Thank you

6 of us Geocachers wanted to tour Havana, visiting the sites & also finding the local geocaches. A list was sent to several guides & Reynier supplied the best response. He enthusiastically delivered an excellent tour, including researching our requests & preparing the drivers to go exactly where the geocaches & sites were. The tour wasn't without glitches but Reynier took them in stride & resolved them. He also added the wonderful Fustlandia which hadn't even been on our radar. Wonderful intro to Cuba!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for taking the time for this beautiful comment. You guys made it easy for me; I had such a good time and also learned a lot with you and your very sweet group.

Reynier did an excellent job communicating with us before our arrival in Havana and had our day and a half of tours very well organized. There were six of us, not easy for anyone to control, but Reynier was very patient and positive. He paced our touring very well and made reservations for delicious local meals and even a break to experience some locals beer and drinks. Reynier was able to share lots of historical, architectural and cultural information with us and answer our questions. He was excellent.

We booked two tours with Reynier and were very happy. He was an excellent tour guide and we had a great time in Cuba. He responded quickly to my emails and was accommodating regarding our needs and requests. Both the Art, Tradition and Culture tour and the Walking Tour were excellent and we would recommend Reynier without reservation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Happy New Year!!! Thank you for your beautiful comment. I really appreciate when people take some time to give me a feel back about the tour. Thank you and I hope to have you back in Havana one day soon.

Reynier is a young man with a deep understanding of Cuba, its culture, and political background. It was great to ask questions about the culture and life under Castro and the relations with the international world. We continued our cruise of Cuba with a solid understanding of Havana. He leads a quickly paced tour and took us to a great local place for lunch. Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for so much for your comment. Having your feed backs always make us want to improve our tours and learn more about the culture and history of my city, country and the world.

A great art tour! After reading the reviews, we expected a lot, but it was even better. Reynier has a university degree in art literature and knowledgeably showed us the art scene in Havana and beyond. While focusing on art, he shared Cuban culture and history and answered any questions we had. Used a vintage 1950 Chevy with great air-conditioning. Lunch in a quality restaurant with great food and even greater drinks, cocktails and juices. I would encourage you to take advantage of Reynier's great tour!

Good Morning Reynier, Thank you so much for your guidance through-out your country. Your patriotism is admiring. Your knowledge in the arts and the history of Cuban artist makes for a great tour. The restaurants (which we would have never found) were absolutely wonderful. Introducing us to the Cuban people, culture and history made for a wonderful two days. I hope some day you make it to the USA to witness first hand that America is not that bad and we too hold a deep love of our country. Peace & Love

My friends and I highly recommend Reynier. His tour of Havana was amazing. He provided fascinating historical background and interesting cultural details on Havana. Reynier is extremely friendly and easy going. He has a great sense of humor and had my friends and I laughing throughout the tour. His restaurant and bar recommendations were perfect. He went above and beyond our expectations and made our trip to Havana truly wonderful.

Our guide Reynier gave us an excellent tour of Havana - he showed us several interesting points of interest including Havana forest which many visitors are not even aware of. He was helpful and informative to my wife and I answering all of our questions.

Reynier did a fabulous job with our tour. Very professional. He was most attentive and made sure that we saw all the important sites in Havana. He was very knowledgeable of the architecture and history of Havana. He went out of his way to take us to a jazz club in the evening and spent the entire evening with us. This was above and beyond the call of duty of a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy to know you enjoyed the tour. I had an amazing time with you and your family and it was a great pleasure to share my Cuba with you. Hope to see you soon around Havana again. All the best of this beautiful family.
