I enjoyed my visit to Cuba and want to go again. The people were very friendly and I was surprised that the locals knew a little English – better English than my Spanish. I just enjoyed whole tour, especially our guide Jesús. He was wonderful and had so much information to share with us. I knew that there would be poverty but i just did not realize the extent. We did not have any problems during our stay in Cuba.

Because of our driver and guide, Jesús, out trip to learn about the people and culture was very successful. It was important to me to be around the people of Cuba. Everything thing that was planned for the trip was exciting: food, food, food any samples of their food. The visit to the model organic farm was at the top of my list. The owner was very engaging. Jesús translating, made the experience very personal. Again, the owner was so warm and patient on all of our questions and very inviting to her farm. Food lunch, was wonderful. No problem with this trip.
Jesús allowed us to interact with everyone, he was by our side, as we always felt safe, but the Cuban people were very friendly. We are recommending to everyone we know to take this tour and have our driver (he was great) always had the bus ready for us to board. Jesús – he is your golden ticket. He was the best at everything. I believe he was the reason for a wonderful trip. He was very professional and still became a “working” and trusted friend.

Sandor was a great guide and gave us interesting facts and insights into the island and the people. He seemed genuine and like he enjoyed working with our group. I learned a lot about Cuba. The tour ran very smoothly. Arriving before 2pm and departing after 2pm made sense for tour but was difficult to find flights. I stayed an extra night in Miami in order to get a connecting flight back home the next day.

A WONDERFUL culture and people. Very vibrant and pleasant! And the weather was perfect and hot! We completely enjoyed the BEAUTIFUL beach at Varadero near Paradise Resort. The tours of Havana were informative and fun. We had a wonderful visit and were very impressed with the entire trip.

I enjoyed very much the people and the culture. I felt it a rich experience. It was like peeling back an onion with so many things to learn especially the history. The last night at the fabulous restaurant was great! Loved the classy aspects of that, the music offered. I very much appreciated the 1 1/2 hour with Dr. Marta Núñez. It was very helpful to discuss where our two countries are in terms of their relationships. The walking tour of Old Havana was wonderful, so fun to explore and see the old architecture inclusive of cobble stone streets. I enjoyed the Mojitos at practically every lunch and dinner. Riding in the old cars was a must.

The people of Cuba are very warm and inviting. The culture makes you want to join in. I liked the visit to the youth center the best. Interacting with the young adults was eye opening and rewarding. Communities thrive when adults value the young and the old! There were no problems with the tour!

I loved how warm Cubans are toward visitors. I loved how visual artists and musicians are considered to be as worthy as doctors and appreciated every time we got to experience the arts. Las Terrazas was amazing. We all wished we could have stayed for one night there and explored the village further.

Cuba was interesting and different than expected. Our guide was amazing. She did a great job of explaining many different nuances of Havana and Cuba in general.

The Cuban people and culture was beautiful. So much history lives in Cuba I would love to go back to learn more! My guide Mandi was amazing! He was extremely thorough and so informative on all things Cuba. My group was awesome as well. This made the experience of visiting Cuba very memorable.

Cubans are a diverse group of individuals who ancestors are from all over the world. The culture also mimics that of its people. Diverse rich and beautiful.

I loved learning about Cuban history, religions, interacting with the people, dancing to the music, eating the food, and landscape ad general energy of the island. Learning the history and interacting with Cubans through art and music was my favorite parts. I can not think of any improvements at the moment.
Kathryn Wyffels, Vacaville, California
Beautiful country, warm and open people that treat tourists like family. Las Terrazas was a huge highlights. I would have like to stay one night at their hotel. Amazing! Our Las Terraza guide, Annia, was one of my wonderful. Geldrys Vilches our full time guide was astonishing. She was so informed, flexible and a great translator. She is a huge asset to your company. Our driver, Fuben, was also quite good.
Miguel Sandoval, San Marino, California
My family and I were very impressed with Cuba and its people. There seems to be a high value on education and community and there seems to be a great deal of pride in the culture. Everyone seemed very fun and friendly and having a tour guide like Rosie was extremely valuable as she was able to explain certain aspects and thoroughly answer our questions.
The itinerary was great, but it left us wanting more. Our tour guide Rosie was very accommodating and when someone from the group wanted to venture out to see something that was not programmed, she modified the agenda as everyone in the group wanted to do the same thing. During our free time, Rosie was very helpful in making recommendations and she even went out of her way to make dinner reservations for several of us in the group.Rosie’s knowledge of Cuban history was most enjoyable as she was able to go through several different historical periods in Cuba’s past. Overall we had an excellent experience.
