We have just returned from a most wonderful 5 day tour with Olga! We can't rave enough about our Olga. We were so fortunate to find such a talented tour guide. First of all...Olga's English is just like ours and yours...no difference. We found traveling to Cuba was very easy and made even easier by Olga. We had asked Olga to give us a Havana tour focusing on the Arts ... theater, dance, artists etc. and Jewish history and current Jewish sights. Going to Cuba? Don't hesitate to contact Olga...

So first let me apologize to the best tour guide I have ever had the pleasure of touring with for being so late. Honestly if you have even thought of going to Cuba, GO! Olga made this the best trip ever. So much knowledge and she was very kind to share her time with me touring all around Havana. As a pro photographer it was a pleasure to capture so many great hot spots. Olga negotiated taxi rates and showed me the heart of Havana. Going to Cuba, then hire Olga, you can thank me later!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh dear Devin!!!! Thank you so much for your kind words! Hope that you and your family doing well, will write you more. Hugs, Olga

Tour: Express Havana 4 hours, Havana, Cuba
Date: May 26/19

My boyfriend and I were visiting Havana for the first time and wanted to find a tour guide who would show us the most interesting places and teach us some history. The only problem is that I speak English and he speaks Russian. Luckily we found Olga!! She was able to fill all of our requirements, and it turns out she has lived in both of our countries. We were able to have a fantastic tour with her! She showed us everything that was within reasonable walking dist from our accommodation in Old Havana.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh! Dear Kristi and Aleksei!!! Thank you so much for your kind words, I am touched. Will keep in touch with you, definitely! My trip was good, intense and interesting in the same time. Have a good summer and come back to Cuba. Take care, all the best, Olga

Our group spent a great afternoon with Olga touring Havana recently. Olga did well to accommodate all of us. She is very knowledgeable about the art, architecture, history, and culture of the city, and took us to many fun and interesting locations. Olga gave us a good overview of the Cuban revolution, showed us diversity of the modern life. Because of Olga's friendly personality, several of us felt like we made a new friend in just a few hours, and we definitely recommend her service.

Tour: Primavera in Havana for Victor and his friends, Havana, Cuba
Date: May 2/19

I gave the other tour guides a chance and Olga took the spotlight; a highly intelligent, compassionate and fun person. She built a custom itinerary and was able to change on the fly. Her local connections allowed us access to items and places we would have never found. Always contact her before doing anything. As a group of five young adults, she knew how to accommodate our (fun) tastes and we naturally connected like family. She is forever now our aunt from Cuba. -Victor (curse the 510 text limit)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Victor!!! Darling!!!! Thank you!!! You are one of my favorite group. When I think about you, I smile!!! Awesome young people!! Stay well and come to visit me again!!!! Say hi to all of you and Antony specially. Hugs, love, Olga.

On May 1, my husband and I took a tour with Olga in Havana, Cuba. We would give her a 5 star rating out of 5 stars. She was very responsive to our many questions before the tour and the day of the tour we met up with her with no problems. Her skills in relating the history of the city and the country were quite evident. My husband's mobility issues were handled by Olga and our driver with compassion and efficiency. Many thanks to Olga for making our day in Havana a delightful experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot! I am glad that you enjoyed the tour!!! Hugs, Olga

My family was part of Tour #541753 with Olga C. and thought the tour was wonderful! Olga was extremely knowledgeable about Cuba, and Havana in particular, with a wealth of historical information in addition to local legends. She was extraordinarily accommodating and made adjustments to her planned tour whenever we asked. We saw more in a day with Olga than we ever thought we could. If and when we return to Cuba for another visit, Olga will be the guide we will be seeking out!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathleen, thank you very much for your kind words. I would be delighted to work with you in the future, hope soon. Stay well and keep smiling! Say Hi to all, big hug, Olga

Olga was fantastic. We have young children and she was able to provide a customized tour that engaged them (what child doesn't like to climb on cannons an eat "tiny" bananas?) while showcasing Havana's unique history, art, and architecture. She is also did a great job negotiating with locals for our classic car ride and admission to certain destinations. I would highly recommend Olga. If we had more time, I would have certainly hired her to take us outside of Havana to see the country side. Next time!

That was amazing few days my family and I spend with Olga . She is great ! Olga told us about every single historic building and a corner of Havana, took us to places that not every tour brings you to - places you really wanna see and experience to understand Cuban lifestyle. She gave us great suggestions on what would be a good idea to do while in the city. Definitely interesting and fun experience. Highly recommended

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear, dear Vlad! Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity... you and your family are amazing. Wishing you all the best and hope to see you again here in Havana. Hugs

Only a couple of times in years of travel have we enjoyed a private guide as good as Olga. I could not give a more positive review - she was wonderful. Thank you ToursByLocals.com for having her available. My only regret is not having been able to book her for every day we were in Havana.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!!! It was real pleasure meeting you both. Hopefully you will be back soon and I will show you “my Havana”, warm hugs, Olgs

Olga is entertaining, intelligent, highly educated & her English is perfect. We had a private tour in Havana & Las Terrazas for 3 days. We experienced several different modes of transportation, walking, classic cars, mini taxi, and ferry. Special treats included salsa lessons, a visit to Camera Obscura, best mojito (La Bodeguita Del Medio), best pina colada (Hotel Nacional de Cuba) & viewed Miniature Havana (Maqueta de la Habana). We learned a about the Cuban people, past and present.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!! Thank you for trusting me and letting me show you my favourite spots! I had a lots of fun with, gracias! Hugs!!!

Olga was our tour guide in Havanna on January 16 and 17th. She did an excellent job with us. We spent both days with her. She was knowledgable about the city and was very informative. Olga took us to places that we had agreed upon and even more. We enjoyed lunch and the best pina coladas ever. She was entertaining with her stories and personal about her experiences in Havanna. We had a great time with Olga and if we choose to come back to Cuba, we would definitely want her to be our tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! I highly appreciate your words and hope that very soon will see you again, here in Havana. My warmest regards, Olga
