I have always wanted to go to Cuba but never really knew how to go about it. I was so excited when my husband found a guide from Toursbylocals that would do a three day private tour for us. Words cannot describe the amazing experience Ela gave us. I am still blown away by her knowledge, her enthusiasm and her zest for life and the Cuban people and culture. Our plans are to go back to Cuba and visit Havana - but only if it is with Ela V! She connected us to the people and culture of Cuba, she is a treasure
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You guys!!!! You killed me with your kindness and love!! I had so much fun, I enjoyed my short but memorable time with you so so so much, I learn a great deal because you are amazing ambassadors of your country and culture as well, you literally gave my a ride of emotions and laughter and there are no words to thank you enough. I cannot wait to see you again! Big smashing kisses. Ela

Ela is a vibrant, exciting and dramatic guide. She combines knowledge and energy resulting in a fabulous tour. Her english is flawless.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jody!! Thank you!! For your patience and kindness and for bearing with my theatrical stories :) :) :) you are (both of you) the sweetest! All my warm and love Ela
We had 5 days with Ela and her driver. It was amazing, everything was amazing. Ela had your need and desire in her head constantly, taking care of every detail in our tour. Ela planned the tour according to our wishes, we saw e.g. Las Terrazas, Vinales, Zapata swamp, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, sugar mill valley, Santa Clara. We tried trekking, zipline, sailing, swimming and Ela knew everybody and took us to the most amazing restaurants and Casa Particular along the way. We strongly recommend Ela for your trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Heidi & Lars, my Disneylanders!!! My beloved friends, thank you! For your kindness and love for the Cuban people, specially the kids (all the Legos adventures!). Please do! Come back! You are more than welcome. Cheers my dears Ela
