The Best In Varadero!

Reserved a car for our first anniversary in Varadero via the internet....easy booking, they also made lunch reservations at the #1 restaurant in Varadero and it was great! I can't thank these guys enough for all they have done and their great service...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

These Guys Are Great Tour Operators

We used Gohabana, to book the tour from resort in Varadero to Havana city. I booked this tour while in Canada three weeks before travel date through email. Their price of the tour is very reasonable, even lesser than the bus tour which Sunwing selling. They came on time with two beautiful vintage cars as we were 8 people. The guide were highly educated, speaks fluent English. I will highly recommend them.

Amazing Custom Experience That Far Exceeded Expectations!

Any tour company is only as good as the quality, professionalism, knowledge and energy of their guides. Call it the luck of the draw that we were paired with Fernando (as our driver) and Tamara (as our English speaking guide), or call it the level of quality you can anticipate when you book with GoHabana Travels - either way, it resulted in the experience of a lifetime for us. We booked the trip on-line just five days in advance of a last-minute decision for a one-night, two-day trip to Cuba. We requested the Vinales-Habana overnight excursion, but requested to drive to Vinales upon arrival, spend the day there, then drive back to Havana to stay the night, and spend the next day touring the city prior to our 6pm departure. The GoHabana staff were responsive via email, confirmed well ahead of time and provided the necessary documentation in advance that sped our way through customs on the morning of our flight from Tampa to Havana. We were greeted at the airport by Tamara, who then assisted us with the proper manner of exchanging our currency at the airport. We then were able to meet our driver Fernando who shared with pride his 3rd generation ownership of a 1944 Green Plymouth 4-door sedan. Departing the airport for the 2+ hour drive to Vinales, we were treated with respect, allowed modifications to the itinerary - including a request to make an unscheduled stop suggested by a friend who had been to the island the week before. Fernando took us to a local dining spot off the main tourist drive in town, and we had the most delicious and flavorful family style lunch for $15 CUC ea. All of the other reviews I've seen have knocked the food as not appealing, well this place was amazing. The dishes were well seasoned and the portions overly generous, so much so we couldn't finish everything! I could go on and on about the little special touches that Fernando and Tamara provided over the course of the two days we spent with them. But overall, they embodied what I would say is the honest and true spirit of the country of Cuba. Though this trip was a business research trip, I would go back this coming weekend if I could - as long as GoHabana provided these same two guides. Having traveled internationally and taken many private tours, these two are genuinely at the top of my list as the all-time best.
