Al showed us his city in an interesting way, lots of details about the nowadays Cuban way of life. He responded to our questions and wishes and made us try some typical local drink and food! We enjoyed it a lot, and got useful information and help for our transportation to our next destination. thank you Al!

Al is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. We really enjoyed our walk with him in the less explored neighbourhoods in Matanzas and learned a great deal from him. Thank you so much, Al and anyone who stops at Matanzas should arrange a tour with him

We had such a great time with Alfredo (Al)! The meet up location was very easy to find. We had a nice time exploring highlights of Matanzas. It was so nice to talk to someone who was from the area and get the perspective of a true Cuban. He answered all of our questions openly and honestly. He was so easy to talk to, almost like talking to an old friend. The walk did not feel as long as it was, and we were able to see a lot during the tour. In our group of four, there were a mixture of sights that were showed us that were of interest to all of us. He took us to a nice food spot afterwards. While the food selections were limited due to Cuba’s current economic situation, the meal was just what we needed for our hunger and the drinks were very tasty and refreshing!! Highly recommend :)

Vladimir gave us a new perspective of Cienfuegos. He knew a lot about history both of Cienfuegos and Cuba, also got us into places such as hotels and stuff that were very nice and was no way for us to discover ourselves. Was very helpful and kind and warming. Excellent tour guide. Thanks amigo.
