What kind of plans I design for you

Slowly we will descent into the 'real' Cuba. Old Havana is beautiful but underneath the make-up there is a different layer. Centro is the most interesting part of town for me. It’s less civilized and even a bit raw… We should at least spent a day there! I’ll take you off the beaten track. On your third day in Havana you will not see any sandals above short cargo pants anymore ☺ . I've been living in Havana in winter for 8 years now. Love it! And will make you love it too! Remember: Havana is extremely safe... Will make you do and see some stuff that seems odd :-). But it is always safe!

I highly recommend to get Tino to plan your city tour. Havana is big and finding good places to eat at is not easy. The map which we have downloaded on Trip unique was excellent for navigating through the city. We visited all recommended places and more. Easy, quick and cheap. Go for it. (Though do not recommend biking in Havana. Trafic can be chaotic, sidewalks are badly paved and many streets are being rennovated. Walk or take street bike-cabs)

As expected, we started off on the map and ended up walking to different spots we saw that were not part of the of the "plan" But- amazing to have these maps/plans. We missed two things for our next visit to Havana. Ice cream coppelia and the ferry to Casablanca. Looking forward to our return!

So helpful! We saw absolutely everything we wanted, and avoided all of the touristy stuff ee didn't care for. Our cell phones didn't work in Cuba but because we downloaded our itinerary, we were able to use TripUniq with no trouble. The GPS even worked, and because we had maps with our itinerary we never got lost!

Tino put together a great trip for us. He even told me where to get a birthday cake. He knows Havana well and can take you off the tourist trail to see the real city.

My experience of Havana would have been a 2-3 if I was on my own, with a guide it became a solid 10. And a plan that saved us money, this guide will pay for itself!

The cigar factory has moved. They only sell cigars at the location Tino provided. He referred a few restaurants, the 3 Corners restaurant was outstanding but as he indicated it was pricey. Overall the information was very helpful.

First time visit to Havana and we could not be more delighted! Tino's guide offered a personalized, professional plan to places we would not have found on our own. He also provided great tips and tricks to help us maximize our time and money, so we were able to relax and enjoy our trip. I would recommend him to anyone going to visit Havana, he made our trip amazing!!

I appreciated the honesty (although can be interpreted differently for a non-Westerner) and the restaurant recommendations for a city without a standard food "scene."

The single most useful tool we had in Havana was this itinerary

Great tips for 2 days/nights in Havana, Cuba! I loved the personal comments from Tino and the layout of the guide (similar to a walking tour) made it easy to follow. We ended up picking & choosing sights/restaurants recommended by Tino while exploring the city ourselves. For just 5 Euros a day, would recommend! Also - if you can find it, stop by Alberto's Bakery on the corner calzada de infanta y valle in Havana :)

Tino's picks were great. Only qualm was that one of the recommended restauranta (Prado 155) was no longer in existence

First day was perfect, we really enjoyed it. The second day was ok, but we were very disappointed with alberto's bakery (very long walk for no added value), so we decided not to continue the tour as presented. But as I said, first day was perfect.

Hoi Tino, we hadden al veel aan de tips uit je boek gehad maar de drie 'wandelingen' waren ook erg interessant. We hebben bijna alles gedaan. Aangezien je ook al had gezegd dat waarschijnlijk niet alle onderdelen precies in volgorde of op die dag gedaan moesten worden, was er één misser. Don Pepe was niet open op de dag dat wij er langs gingen (even vermelden dat ze 's zondags dicht zijn) En omdat wij in Vedado zaten ontdekten we snel het muziekfestival op La Rampa; dat is iets om voortaan zeker te vermelden ergens in je route. Verder hebben we erg genoten van onze week in La Habana.

Tino made a very nice itinerary and knows a lot about Cuba and it's mentality. His itinerary isn't like a fixed schedule (you shouldn't have one in Cuba, really), but you can pick the things that looks interesting and do them in the several days you are in Havana. Tino is a reliable guide for this buzzling, easygoing, complex and paradoxical country.

Super!! I had a wonderfull time. Couldn't have done this without him. Tino knows Cuba and the Cubans. Knows where to go; is very entertaining. And pulls back at the right time. Have seen places, not mentionated in the tourit books. Met the real Cuabans personally. A must with Tino if you don't want just to lay t the each. Robbert
