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.

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.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your very nice comment and for being such a nice person. I hope I will see you back in Havana or in CA very soon. It was great to have you in our BBQ.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Nothing make me feel more happy than readying this very sweet comment. Thank you so much not only for taking the time to share about your experience in Havana but also for making very easy easy my job showing you around my city. Hope to see you guys back in town soon.

Reynier was fantastic! We spent two full days seeing Havana at our own speed with a very knowledgeable guide. While he demonstrated knowledge in all the areas we visited, he has particular expertise in art, and we enjoyed the public art installations through which he guided us. You will be happy you chose this guide!

Met all of my expectations. Reynier is a fascinating person to converse with; as a tour guide, he is a jewel. During our day trip, my wife had a trip and fall accident. Reynier helped us bandage her wounded knee and structured the rest of the day to make her comfortable, so that even though we had to slow down the activity level in Havana, we still had a wonderful and educational experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment. I am sorry about the accident but at the same time happy to hear you ended having a nice experiences of the tour. Hopefully, I will have you back soon in Havana to see the rest of the city.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great pleasure to take you around my city and show you some of my favorite places. I'm so happy to hear you like the tour. Thank you for your comment and your recomendations. All the best for both of you

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. Organizing tours and working with people like you all is what makes me feel so happy to be part of the ToursbyLocals experiences. See you soon for some more geocaching.

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.

Reynier is a young man with a deep understanding of Cuba, its culture, and political background.

He leads a quickly paced tour and took us to a great local place for lunch. Highly recommend.

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.

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.

We enjoyed our tour very much with Reynier. He was on time at the pickup location. His English was perfect. He adapted the tour to our speed and when I mentioned that I was really enjoying the pace, he said that he does that for all clients based on them. He was a great conversationalist, quite knowledgeable about the local history, pointed out some local Olympians we happened to see, took us to a fabulous and inexpensive lunch spot we would not have found otherwise. I would highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment. I had a great time with you too. It was a great pleasure to spend some time with you and i wish I will be as energetic as you and your sister. I hope you come back soon and I will show you the rest of Havana. hugs

Date: Dec 16/16

This was my first TourByLocals experience and Reynier was the perfect guide. I am so very glad we booked him for our trip. He was very fun and expertly knowledgeable. He knew all the right places to go to give us the ultimate Cuba experience. The driver, Ronny, was excellent also. Reynier always found the best restaurants. The diving trip was fantastic and quite the experience. I plan to go back in the future and will definitely be booking another trip with him when I do.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment, I had a great time with you guys as well. I am looking forward to seeing you back in Cuba and also the rest of the family. Next dive will be longer, I will be practicing every weekend. Take care and don't go that fast ;)

I indicated to my guide, Reynier that I was mostly interested in discovering wall murals, and contemporary Cuban Art, and he tailored a three day guided tour of artists studios and points of interest that were just what I was looking for. He was flexible enough to let me explore the Havana Cemetery on our last day together. I appreciated the evening at the National Ballet Theatre. Personable & friendly, I recommend Reynier as a guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mark for your comment. It was a great pleasure to exchange our art experiences in our different contexts. I enjoyed showing you around but also learning a lot about your interesting stories. Thank for the great time.

Date: Oct 24/16

Excellent, well organised, personalised tour. Reynier has extensive knowledge and information about Cuba, and of local art and culture - we were fortunate to be able to experience a musical performance. Good communicator, made the trip very interesting, interaction and contact with local people excellent. Very flexible allowing last minute alterations in the schedule, modified and adapted to to my limited mobility in a sensitive and unobtrusive manner. He will adapt tour to your requirements. Thanks G G O

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment and the wonderful time I had with you, Oli and Greta. I really enjoyed listening to your histories and going shopping with Greta :) I hope soon we will manage to go back to Viñales to get some more of Carlo´s delicious food. Remember, keep your pink bracelet safe :)

Date: Oct 11/16

Reynier was an awesome guide, with great insight into Cuba. The People-to-People tour we did focused on local art, the artists, some history of the city (specifically with schools & churches), as well as some of his favorite restaurants and bars (best meal I had during my week in Habana was for lunch of the tour). We (group of 7) were lucky enough to see him again outside the tour, and got to spend some more time just hanging out. Great guy, great tour, and so def. recommend him for any of your tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Elliot for your comment and the great time I had with your group. It was a great pleasure to show you my city and spend some time with you guys. I´m very glad to meeting you all and I hope to see you soon to have a second round of Dominos :) All the best

Reynier arranged a top-notch adventure for my group of 7's week-long trip. I can't imagine our trip without him - he arranged seamless services (driver, accommodations) & curated an itinerary that fused our requests w/ smartly hand-picked experiences of Cuban culture. It quickly felt like we were being shown around by a friend - we had a blast doing things we wouldn't find on our own (e.g. free concert at the uni), as well as learning from his deep knowledge of Cuban history & politics. Muchas gracias, R!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you guys for the great time I expended with you. I had an amazing experience showing you around, not only sharing the history and culture of my country but also learning a lot from you all. It was a great pleasure to meet you;Marissa, Katherine, David, Jessie, Frank, Tory and Winston(the best doctor ever) are the best group. Many hugs for all of you and see you soon my friends.

We loved Reynier! He showed us all that Old Havana had to offer. More importantly, he shared so much about Cuban life. Reynier was perfect for our group of 6: smart, funny, enthusiastic and interesting. I would recommend Reynier to anyone going to Cuba.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is always easy to show people around and tell about Cuban history, culture and reality when there are people like Carrie and her group, very interested and curios but at the same time fun and relax. Thanks a lot for the great time. Hope to see you back in Cuba very soon
