Phototour guide Angel and driver Andy took us on an all day private tour, in a 1950s Chevrolet, from Havana to Vinales during our week-long stay in Havana (booked via Fertours). It was the best thing we did while we were there because Angel is an excellent tour guide. His English is excellent, his information interesting and relevant and he clearly wanted to make the trip personal for us - we even managed to change the standard itinerary to spend more time looking round Vinales. It was our opportunity to understand Cuban culture, life and history better while driving through stunning scenery. We did a short boat tour of the the caves used by the indigenous Cubans in times past , taken to great viewing points for Vinales valley and had a great 'country cooking' lunch at a restaurant looking out over another amazing Vinales view. Although the car journeys were long, they were worth it and enabled us to have plenty of time to chat with Angel. He also gave us some great restaurant and bar recommendations for the rest of our stay (LOVED Habana 61!). On top of all of that he was fantastic and showing us where to take photos and how to frame the best shots, giving us a super memories on film of our day. Booking with Angel is highly recommended!

I hired Photo Touring Cuba based on the recommendations here from Trip Advisor and I was pleasantly surprised.
I had an excellent experience with photographers Angel Bada and Yeser Aguilar.

I did steet photography in Havana and Viñales. It was three sensational and unforgettable days. For those who want to photograph and get to know a little about the Cuban soul, to go beyond what is under the media surface, these guys are excellent guides. You will be able to look and photograph Cuba as it is. Its beauty and its challenges, what makes it unique and what the country can improve, like everyone else.

Walking through Havana vieja, photographing the sunrise and sunset of fantastic places, meeting Guajiros and their families, tobacco plantations, having lunch in Paladares was part of this itinerary and the program.

It doesn't matter the brand or quality of your camera, open your eyes and your mind, and you will have an excellent ride.

Thanks guys, it was fantastic!

I must admit I was a little nervous when I booked this trip, I needn't have been. From enquiry to booking the trip, emails were replied to promptly and the trip explained and costed. We were met by Angel not far from the cruise terminal who then walked us to to our 58 chevy convertible for the day. We were then taken on a tour of all the major sites plus a few hidden ones (really loved Fusterlandia) but Angel said we could visit anywhere that we wanted to see, and the tour can be customised to your own needs. Angel then took us to a great restaurant for lunch, the food was amazing and great value. After lunch we were taken on a walking tour of old Havana, all at our own pace, then escorted back to the ship to get changed for the evening. Angel later returned in a hard top Pontiac to take us to the Tropicana club where he fast tracked us through the crowds waiting to get in. He then picked us up again at around midnight to take us back to the ship. This was an amazing day and definitely the highlight of the holiday. We weren't even asked for payment before the end of the day. Compared to the tours offered by the cruise ship this was way better and great value for money. Thanks Angel, hope to see you again.

I was with some work friends in Havana, and we only had a two hour window to quickly explore Old Havana. Angel did an amazing job of showing us so many iconic sites in that short window. I also got to see Angel shoot some photography along the way. I can't wait to go back to take a full-day tour with Angel.

If you are traveling to Havana, I highly recommend booking Angel for a photo or walking tour.

Would highly recommend starting off your trip with a tour from Angel. Throughout the booking process, he replied to emails quickly and succinctly. He arrived early at our prearranged meeting place and was open to modifying the tour schedule.

We had a group of 5, so split up between two old-style convertibles. We started by heading out to Fusterlandia, a neighborhood constructed in the style of Barcelona architect Gaudi. We then drove to Plaza de la Revolución, where Angel gave us a history of the plaza and some background on the revolution. From there, we drove to Old Havana and started the walking tour where we visited a fragrance shop, Plaza Vieja, and Angel's favorite street art. We ended by grabbing a meal at a restaurant where Angel had reserved a table for us.

Would 100% recommend this tour!

Our group booked a day tour with Angel on our first day in Havana, and it was one of the best things we did the whole trip. Not only is Angel funny, engaging and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Havana, he has a great eye for architecture and art, and took us to some of the coolest murals, most picturesque streets, and to hidden gems like an old perfumery. Angel had interesting anecdotes to share on nearly every corner, and recommended several spots for dinner, drinks, and dancing which we took full advantage of over the course of the rest of our trip. Our group is STILL talking about how great Angel was, months later. Book with Angel!

Dear Annie thank you so much for so AMAZING opinion!!!!. I really appreciated friend!!!. I had a great day in Havana with all of you😁. In fact I am so glad that I had the opportunity to shared my beautiful Havana with so good people like you. It was a pleasure for me to show you nice plsces around the city for food😁. As I told you before to finish the tour, Havana has so many places to be discovered that you will need more than one day to do it. So, I will be waiting for you and your group of friends one more time for more tour adventure. We can visit places like Trinidad, Cienfuegos and Santa Clara city!!!. Friend I wish you all the best in life, family and business!!!. Hugs from Havana!!!. Angel.

We took a private day tour to Vinales with Angel and loved every moment of it! He was reliable, thorough and enthusiastic.

Angel clearly knows his country well and is eager to share - we talked about everything, from daily anecdotes to history and aspirations. He made effort to find out what each of us, including my kids, wanted from this trip and tried to accommodate everyone. Along the way, he would point out everything and anything of interest, generously sharing his life stories since we were curious. At the Tobacco farm which was our highlight, he gave us all the time we wanted to explore. None of us speak passable Spanish, but he was always there to interpret, yet was never intrusive.

We felt completely safe asking him to arrange transportation for the next couple of days for us, knowing it would be reliable. He took care to ensure we had the name and car make of the next person, so we would have no problems whatsoever.

Absolutely the best way to experience Havana! I spent the first 3 days of my trip there with Angel and we saw and did so many things, I could have gone home perfectly happy on day 4. As a solo traveler, it was great to have such a full itinerary for three days, and the tips, tricks and insight he gave me helped me throughout the rest of my stay in Havana. I recommend this tour for anyone (from novice to professional) because Angel personalizes each and every tour to meet your wishes and teaches you about Cuban history and culture. Not only that, he is so kind and truly became a friend that I look forward to staying in touch with. He really looks out for you (I felt totally safe as a solo, female traveler) and works so hard to give you the trip of a lifetime. ¡Mil gracias, amigo!

One word: INCREDIBLE!! Before we arrived in Cuba, my friend and I were looking to book a private Havana tour and I am SO happy we chose Angel. From the first moment I reached out, he was extremely responsive via email, provided a lot of detail, and everything was very organized.
The driver that works with him, Dany, picked us up from our resort in Varadero (2 hour drive from Havana). We walked around the streets of Havana and got a true understanding of the city, the history of the island, and the everyday life of people in Cuba.
Angel is extremely knowledgeable and is also able to tweak your itinerary if there are specific spots you want to check out (we wanted to see a synagogue in Havana and Angel surely took us there 😊).
Throughout the trip, Angel was taking photos of us at many beautiful spots, and handed us an SD card at the end.
I am extremely happy that we chose Angel and his excursion, because this was truly unforgettable! You will not regret your decision if you book your trip with this amazing team.
Muchas gracias Angel y Dany— hoping to visit Cuba very soon again 😁

This is the best and fastest way to see a lot of Havana. I emailed Angel and he quickly replied with an itinerary and then the two of us put together a list of things to see. We scheduled a car tour from another vendor on Friday and saw Revolution Square, so we omitted that stop from the photo tour and picked up Monte Street and some other areas of Centro Havana.

If you are photo "touring" you will enjoy a stop for mojitos and lunch. If you are touring to "photograph" the city, you may ask about faster food/drink options to see more of the city, or linger in areas. There were four of us photo "touring," so we enjoyed the options to stop and enjoy refreshments.

Our guide, Duramis, was very knowledgeable about the history of the areas - and she was an engaging personality - ready to share her experiences as a Cuban. Her English is perfect, and her heart is big.

Joel was a safe driver and is so very proud of his red, 57 Bel Air. As well he should be, it's a beautifully restored and maintained car.

A big thank you to Duramis and Joel for making our day in Havana so memorable.
