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.
Jennifer GusmanUnited States
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.
Anne ColemanUnited States
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!
Debbie LundCALIFORNIA, United States
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
Don CariddiUnited States
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.
Antoinette SimsUnited States
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 ;-)

Absolutely fantastic!!!!! Reynier was exceptionally knowledgeable and his English was superb. His driver, Carlos, was excellent also. Thank you both so much. Regards, Dave Wentz
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, David, for your nice comment. I really appreciate when the customers take their time to leave some words about their experience. All the best to you and your friend. It was a wonderful day.
Stanley R.United States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice comment. I'm very happy to hear you had a good time. It was a great pleasure to show your around and share my city with you.
Richard HiggersonUnited States
Reynier was outstanding. He knew the cultural, historical and current events in equal measure. Would recommend him to all who are interested in a broad exposure to Cuba in general and Havana in particular.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment about your experience and tour. It was a pleasure to guide you and I hope you make it back to Cuba soon.

Reynier was hands down one of the best tour guides I've ever encountered in my travels. He was extremely knowledgeable, kind, and flexible. Reynier - thank you for such a beautiful day and amazing conversations!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your very nice comment. Guiding people like you and your friends is what makes me love to be a tour guide. Thank you for the great day and everything I learned about your culture. I hope to see you soon in LA or Iran.
Jeff SilverFLORIDA, United States
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 :)
Susan NovellUnited States
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 ;)

Julie MathyUnited States
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.
Ian S.United States
Highly recommend Reynier if you're looking for a tour of Havanna's art scene like we were. He had an amazing depth of knowledge and was an all around great guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a comment. It is very important for me to get feed backs from customers to always improve the tours.
Leanne Smethers (Wood)United Kingdom
An amazing tour! My husband and I felt like we were seeing Havana with a friend. Reynier, is a great guy. Very knowledgeable but equally chilled. Such an enjoyable day! Thank you so much Reynier :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment. It wad a great day for me and also for all the people we hang out with. It is always a pleasure to show my city to fun people and also learn on the way. Now I want to go to Quatar after hearing all the stories from you. See you in the world cup ��
Karen H.United States
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. Thank so much also for taking the time to write such a nice comment. Hope to see you back in Havana to go through the rest of the city.
Edward GoldUnited States
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
Nancy C.United States
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!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a comment about the tour. It was a great pleasure to guide you around Havana and also talking with you. I always enjoy to share my knowledge with people but more when I am also learning. Thank you for such a great day.

Barbara ChazenUnited States
Our time with our guide Reynier , our driver Reynier and our vintage car was delightful,informative and fun-all mixed together. Our 6 hour tour took us all around Havana giving my husband and me a great overview of history,geography and Cuban culture-a fabulous introduction to our visit to Cuba-Our quide Reynier was extremely solicitous and helpful-my husband had injured his leg and had difficulty walking-If you are fortunate enough to visit Havana,Reynier is the perfect guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your very nice reference. I really appreciate when customers take some time to give me feed back about the tour and their experience in Havana. I had a wonderful day as well and I hope to have you guys back in Havana. I am also very happy that you like my favorite lunch place, El del Frente. I still go there everyday ;)
Marsha HasselbachUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a nice comment. Thank you so much to take the time to write such a sweet review of your experience. I am so happy you enjoyed your time in my city and all its attractions. I also had an amazing time taking you around and showing around. I have to also thank you for your the nice vibes and chat. Hope to see you guys one day back here.
Scott WhiteUnited States
We thought Reynier was excellent. He had great knowledge of the city, provided us with great historical information, all in all a tremendous experience. Thank you Reynier, highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a comment. It is highly appreciated. Hope to see you back in town soon.
Douglas BissonGrant, MICHIGAN, United States
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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice feed back. I really appreciate when travelers take some time to let me know their opinion of the tour. I am happy to see you enjoyed Havana and hopefully we will go around again one day soon.
Jon SolomonUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your commend. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your time in Havana and I hope you guys come back to see the rest of the country soon. Good luck with everything for the whole family.
Carol LambertUnited States
A wonderful day in Havana! I would recommend to add on a drive in a classic car.. it even had a/c!!! He was a delight and our entire family enjoyed the tour and information..book with him if you want a perfect day in Cuba! Thank you for making our day great!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very happy to hear you enjoyed the day in Havana. I also had a fun day and It was a great pleasure to show you around my city. I hope to see you back soon
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.
