Awesome! What would it cost for a round trip from Havana?

I am not sure what you are asking.  I used Jorge to make a run from Havana Centro to Hector Louis farm.  It was 150.00 round trip, 5 hours on the road plus farm visit time.  I know he also is great for local tours and usually charges 100 for the day.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. I was wanting to know how much Jorge charges to drive from Havana to HLP farm, and back. It looks like you answered perfectly. Thanks!

June of '18 he was charging 15CUC/hour.

I booked Jorge again for two days this past weekend. He’s still a gem imho.

We had some great and new experiences which I will detail when I get time. Good stuff.

Btw, he also got me into the Partagas factory for a private tour.

Just finished 3 more days with Arturo that included day trips to Vinales and Veradero.

I'd go back to Veradero, but would skip a return trip to Vinales and instead head back to Hector's farm for custom rolls

I keep hearing about Hector's finca and custom rolls. I want to make the trip next time. How long does it take to get out there? And does he have plenty available or do I have to make an order ahead of time?

It’s a 2-2.5 hr drive each way and when I was there he had plenty pre rolled and ready for purchase 

Still wouldn’t hurt to reach out to him in advance

That is correct.

 

I can also vouch for Arturo with the highest recommendation and praise. The best choice by far for trips to the shops, the utmost reliability and safe & comfortable modern vehicle with a/c. He just put new tires on his vehicle and has seat belts in the back. 

We have gone numerous days and Arturo is always early and is great with the shop staff and my family. PM if you want more info and contact. I will make sure you’re not going the same time we are, though!!!😂👍🏻😉
