We hooked up with Jorge (George) on the first day of our havana trip. We hit it off straight away. Jorge speaks fluent English, is a raconteur, historian, tour guide, problem solver and just a decent all around bloke.  Taxis in Havana are not cheap anymore and Jorge charges 100 CUC a day for personal hire.  Split is amongst three (lada) and it is a bargain to have someone trustworthy and excellent from sun up to late into the night/early morning. 

Take down his details although I will move this to the Cuba travel and classifieds section. 

As always, the only people will spruik on FOH are those that provide an exceptional product, service, experience.  Jorge fits the bill!

If you need a driver for a day or a week....shoot him an email. let him know Rob from Oz sent you.

Depending on your purpose, the Havanatour bus for 10 bucks is another great deal.  It drives by every single one of the LCDH's except the stand alone store in Miramar (though it is only a 15 block walk) and Club Havana.   I hired a guy for 10 dollars to take my friend and I there, wait for us to shop and take me back to the bus route.  30 bucks (2 bus, 1 taxi) for 2 of us for the day.  Not bad.

Oh, and my friend who almost became not my friend, who was in charge of the money, left my bag of 4 grand on the bus on the 1st day.  Took us 6 hours to track down that bus but the amazing honest and good people of Cuba got my money back to me.  If I left 4 grand in a bus in the US, it would have been stolen.

Thanks for this recommendation: Jorge is awesome and knows a ton about the city... his English is very good. 

I called him at 8:30am for a 10am pickup (very last minute plan) and he asked one of his friends to cover a much more profitable trip to Vinales that he was supposed to do that day, to be sure we would have good service! How long have you known him, Rob?  I feel that he did not one to disapoint someone dropping your name.

If anyone is looking for a great driver that will pick up at airport or port and is a great guy please let me know. There has been several on here and friends that have used his services. He speaks Spanish and English and retired from Habanas s.a. In Cuba and moved to Canada for Habanas s.a. as well. He knows everyone in Cuba that has anything to do with Cigars which makes it very nice. He's reasonably priced and most of the time he will get you custom cigars free to smoke at the shops. He's precise and always on time. Great guys just let me know if your interested and I will give you his info. The pictures are of my fulltime driver/friend..Arturo is his name. 

Cheers,

Seems like he's booked up almost every week by some RR guy!

If those recommended above are not available and you need a driver, let me know. We found a great driver last trip courtesy of our casa hostess.

Pavel speaks good English, knows his way around, drives a well-running and clean 53 Bel Air PowerGlide, is extremely service-oriented and quite reasonable. He'd wait for you until 3AM if need be with no complaints.

He'll be our go-to guy on future trips.

I'll vouch for Arturo as well

My wife told him the only reason he does this is to kiss all the girls at the LCDH's 

As mentioned, knows everyone at every shop we went to
