Hi there!!! I am the owner and founder of Gio's Cuba Photo Tours. My friends call me Gio and I have been a local guide since 2012.But I have been living here since 2001.So,I know every inch of my beautiful city and I would love to share it with you. Come with me and meet my friends and neighbors as we explore Trinidad together from the inside. As a local history buff, I am in a unique position to conduct tours the city of Trinidad. My goal is for you to leave with a better understanding of what it really means to be Cuban.
This tour is about discovering the real Cuba from the inside. We will walk to the unknown neighborhoods of Trinidad that are not found in their guides and we will meet the local people, busy in their tasks that they perform in daily life. We will be invited to their homes for a cultural exchange and to hear their stories about what life is like in Cuba.
You will learn about the history of Cuba through our own personal stories, so do not hesitate to ask questions of the families that we will visit.
The walk through the non-touristy parts of Trinidad will take place in the newer part of the city, so we will visit neighborhoods such as La Chanzoneta, La Mano del Negro and La Paila .
And I assure you that we will have plenty of time to take photos.
Meeting point: Open in Google Maps
How to find me: I will be right in front of the old church of Santa Ana. I will take my Nikon D90 camera with me.

We had Choli as our guru guide when we visit Trinidad.. What a fun, interesting , and wonderful time we had .. He knows all the history of Trinidad and also the people . That made it more fun. Having coffee at one place then eating fresh hot bread . What a treat that was.. We walked and enjoyed taking Fotos of the colors of the homes the architecture was amazing.. Looking forward to another visit to Trinidad and seeing the many friends we have there now.. Don’t forget to purchase the beautiful hand made table squares that Choli friends make.. we gave them as gifts and EVERYONE loved them... Best guru guide in Trinidad..
Best tour guide IV ever had!!! We had such an incredible time with Gio! Such a funny heart warming tour guide. We really fell in love with Cuba and we can’t wait to go back, I just wished we had spoken to Gio before I arrived so he could help us organise our entire trip. His knowledge and experience of what he’s been through really made it such an authentic trip. We would go back and do it all again with Gio in a heart beat x
If you have an opportunity to visit Cuba take a tour with Gio! We have visited Trinidad twice and on our first visit we did not plan on an extended time in the area. After spending a day with Gio we knew we had to return to Trinidad. We spent eight days with Gio on our second trip to Trinidad and the surrounding area and that felt like a too short of a time. If you want to experience the history of Cuba and the real life for the natives Gio's tour will take you there. The time with Gio is an experience of the warmth and spirit and life of the Cuban people. Through our tours with Gio we have met many Cubans who have now become friends. We are currently planning our next trip to Cuba, the Trinidad area, and the opportunity to experience more of Cuban history and life with Gio.
Gio's tour was excellent. He deftly led us away from the touristy haunts and at the same time introduced us to the more authentic and historic parts of Trinidad. This allowed me to capture some truly stunning photographs of the everyday life of that colonial city. He also has an excellent command of the English language, which was essential for my limited Spanish vocabulary. In closing, in addition to having a hugely satisfying tour, I now have a friend waiting for my return to Trinidad, Cuba. Buen viaje!
