Lunch may take a while so some snacks will not go wrong. Once in Viñales we will visit the tobacco farm where we will see how is the process of the collection,driyng and confection of a Cuban cigar. Then we will take a horseback ride into the valley near the mogotes. Our lunch will be at a local restaurant with one of the best views of the valley enjoying an authentic Creole menu. Other places of interest are the Indian cave where we will take a boat ride inside it and the prehistoryc mural, in both places I will explain about the life of the native Cuban Indians (tickets not included, prices $5+$3 per person). Our last stop before returning to Havana will be at my favorite place of the excursion, the viewpoint of Viñales Valley, from where we can see all the places we visit and we will take some unforgettable shots of our experience.

This was by far the best experience. We originally only hired him to do the vinales tour, And then I added another tour with him and also asked him if he could take us to Varadero. With him I didn’t feel like he was just a service, but he became a friend. I cannot express the appreciation we had for everything he did. He went above and beyond for us. I can truly say that I would definitely hire him again! Super friendly, super knowledgeable and as I mentioned he went above and beyond for whatever we needed. You won’t regret hiring him!

The whole experience was so lovely and well arranged. Gonzalo was super nice and had so many stories to tell us about Cuba, its history, the places we visited, everything! And he spoke really fluent English. The places we visited were amazing. I had never tried horse-back riding but that was my definite favorite; riding with very well trained horses in peaceful countryside was just so relaxing! It was also so interesting to hear and see how cigars are handmade. The day was perfect and I would recommend Gonzalo's experience to the fullest!

This is a fantastic day out, if you are in Havana this is a must. With a Classic Chevrolet Deluxe car from 1950's you will enjoy nice scenery once of the motorway, a rolling cigar in a farm, a horse riding and a great huge lunch at a paladar. Gonzales is a great guy, just book this tour and you will not be disappointed.

This is a MUST-DO day trip from Havana. You will not regret it! Gonzalo is a fantastic host. He went above and beyond to pick up me and my friends from two separate hotels and personalized our trip. He was on time and the trip was nothing but smooth. Caves, cigar farm, horseback riding, rock mural, free pina colada, vantage view point, you name it! 10/10 on its value and 6 stars if I could give it!

Superbe expérience en immersion dans de la vallée de Vinalès! J ai adoré la ballade à cheval dans la plantation de tabac car la nature était splendide et paisible —le rhum et le cigare ont contribué à une totale détente je dois avouer :) —Gonzalo fait en sorte que sa sortie soit très « privative » en évitant au maximum la valse des bus des touristes qui arrivent par salve tout le long de la journée, on a donc grâce à son organisation pu profiter un maximum de temps des mêmes endroits mais à des heures décalées ! Les cigares de la plantation ne sont pas moins cher qu’en ville mais ils ont le goût du souvenir du moment...fort agréable!

This has been a very unique experience for us. Gonzalo is very knowledgeable about the history of Cuba, tabaco farm and Vinales area. He was very patient and knowledgable to answer all our questions. We booked this private tour on the first full day after our arrival and you can probably imagine how many the questions that we had about Cuba. :-) Tabaco farm visit and horse back riding are top our favorites. Lunch is our delighter, delicious authentic Cuban food, probably one of our best meals in Cuba.
