Centro is the less visited residential zone. It has a few things you should see and a lot of local culture. It’s the second oldest part of Havana and it's less renovated. I’ll steer you through the back alleys and also we’ll have good food (Michelin star bakery!). Vedado is the rich residential/business/nightlife area. University, Hotels and again we’re going off the beaten track. (Less)

Today is ‘Moneyda Nacional day’ You can only buy stuff that is sold in MN. Shopping malls with nothing to buy, local bars where you don’t want to drink with the local drunks. Splendid views and ruined villas. Dilapidated suburbs and the secret service head quarter. (Less)

The on site assistance was brilliant and everything Tino arranged for us worked like clock work. Tino is knowledgable and the advice in CubaConga is truly indispensable. Thanks Tino! It could have been a very different trip if we hadn't found you! (Less)

(More) Hi Tino, Havanna and Kuba was a great and impressing experience. We went to Vinales, Playa Larga, Topes de collantes, Trinitad and finally to Varadero. A pitty for us was that we missed our connection flight in Paris (Air France... ... !?!?) so we lost one whole day in Havanna. :´( We did the whole bike tour (the bikes were really good), which was good, but we had issues with all the car exhausts. We had watery eyes and a sour throat after that day. All your other tips were very good, but we didn't visit all. Thanks a lot! Regards from Austria, Bernhard. (Less)

It was very good en wel explained, great way to discover/rediscover Havana. Thx Tino for the reactive response!

(More) We loved having a non-committal daily itinerary, one that we could deviate from when we wanted to. The itinerary allowed us to see things we would never have seen if we had followed the normal touristic routes. Plus there was no longer the need for the daily desperate search for a good restaurant.

We loved our first tripUnique experience and Tino really provided us was a personalised trip!

I found tripUniq the day before leaving, which made me a tad nervous that I wouldn't be able to get my itinerary in time since this was all last minute. Plus, also knowing that WiFi could have been scarce. Tino delivered, and the details were great. We covered so much in the two days he provided for us, and his personal notes to each point of interest were a great addition. We all know it can be overwhelming reading, and reading trying to learn and fit in all the things and/or events you want to accomplish while on vacation. Do yourself a favor, if you're going to Cuba, definitely ask Tino. (Less)

Tino opened the door to Havana in a way that we could not have had happen another way. An amazing trip thanks to a great guide. Muchas gratias!!!

We contacted him with only a matter of 2-3 days before our trip and he put together an itinerary quickly. His tips easily saved us more money than the cost of hiring his services. One example was arranging a driver and transport to Vinales. Tino lives there, part-time, so he knows what things should cost and how it should be done. So we got a great deal and I didn't have to haggle or worry about a thing for that trip. You can't put a price tag on that. Well I guess you could, had we done a Vinales trip from a resort, we would have paid 2-3x the cost. We were also surprised and welcomed to Tino's home and met his family. This isn't part of the TripUniq package. We were fortunate to see how Cuban's live and had a wonderful time! Thanks Tino! Hope to see you in the future! (Less)

Some descriptions where so vague that we didn’t know what to think. Overall we really liked it and got to see some places we wouldn’t have seen without the app
