I had a great time. I enjoyed the people and the places I stayed. Loved the Tropicana Show, and the Soroa Botanical Garden. No problems.

Cuba is a unique country with a lot of history and very nice people. We enjoyed being in the middle of things, learning about occupations, colonial time, wars, trade, personalities, legends and all other events that in turn, contributed to the eclectic architecture and colorful image of the city. New and old, renovated or waiting its turn to be restored to its past fame, condemned by times or weather, every building and plaza is telling a wonderful story. Cuba is a magical land and we are happy to have been part of this experience.
Seeing, touching and hearing about the Old Havana, Plaza Vieja, Plaza de la Catedral, Plaza de la Revolution, Central Park, Governor’s Palace, fortifications and many other things. What really made the difference though were our tour guide Pedro and our driver Gustavo. Wonderful folks, very friendly and always in time for everything! It was good to feel pampered and to be guided from an extraordinary destination to the next. Many thanks especially to Pedro; at first it felt a bit overwhelming to be in an unknown place, guided by rules and customs you don’t understand. However, Pedro was always there, on the phone or in person, reassuring. Great coordination skills and extensive knowledge of the city, its buildings, history and Cuban customs. 10 out of 10!

This was an amazing experience! I appreciated the rich culture, the warm, friendly and hospitable people, our dedicated driver, and our amazing tour guide! My favorites included the amazing performance by Jesus Aguaje and his band at the iconic Havana Club and Cafe, the discussion with the professor about the history of Cuban music (simply amazing!), and the food at Cafe Ajiaco. Smooth tour and great experience.

Cuba is a wonderful and fascinating place to visit. The people were wonderful and the evidence of a lively cultural life abundant. Our guide, Ale, and bus driver were excellent. All arrangements were beautifully taken care of. The food was excellent, our itinerary rich. The hotel, not like an American tourist hotel, felt very much of its place and history with a terrific location. Service at the hotel was wonderful (Special thanks to Emmanuel and Anabel.)

This was my fifth tour in Cuba, but the first time I spent an entire week in Havana. I came back and brought a friend who had never experienced Cuba before. I return again and again because of the warmth of the Cuban people, the fascinating history and present of the country, and the rich artistic and architectural culture. Meylin Bernal was the very best tour guide I’ve had in Cuba. She was organized, incredibly resourceful in coming up with alternatives when scheduled plans didn’t work out, and knowledgeable about Cuba – art, architecture, politics, history, etc. – well beyond any previous guide and well beyond belief.

I had a wonderful time exploring the art, architecture, food and culture of Cuba! Havana is stunning visually and country has such an interesting history. Everyone I met was friendly and welcoming. Favorite parts were the art, architecture, learning about the history and traditions of Cuba. No problems, I enjoyed the tour.

I am a traveling wife whom accompanied Stephen Mitchell. I wanted to share my thoughts on Cuba. I absolutely love the people and culture. We in the rest of the world have will benefit from learning more about this unique country and following their love for the simplicity of life! I loved the mindset and attitude of the people. They live life how it should be lived with enjoying the simple pleasures, beauty of the natural environment, their personal gifts and talents and making the best out of their existing economic and political situation. There were no problems with the tour. Our tour guide, Maylin, was fabulous, fun and so informative. She is absolutely superb!

I loved Cuba. It was the most culturally rich trip I ever taken. Visiting the many cultural institutions, especially the Museum of Modern Art, and the Rumba was especially exciting!

I can’t get Cuba out of my head, the people and culture so interesting. It’s multi-cultural society operating with complete respect in every facet (i.e. religion, politics, etc.). Loved learning about its history and its ability to survive against all odds.

We could not have had a better time in Cuba. The people were all extremely friendly and open to assisting us with our questions. We enjoyed learning more about the culture as we went from venue to venue. This tour exceeded our expectations every day. Besides the obvious tour stops we worked in extra stops which were important to us. The openness and caring about our additional requests was appreciated. Our guide, Ari was absolutely exceptional. She is not only a credit to your company, but also a great ambassador for all of the people of Cuba. We thoroughly enjoyed her company, as well as our bus driver.
Overall there were no problems with the tour. From the beginning everything including the initial booking, the several calls with questions (which were always answered appropriately and with caring) to the execution in Cuba were handled professionally.I would recommend our Weekend in Havana to anyone who is looking for a great time in a wonderful country.

I left with a great impression of Cuba overall. Everyone was friendly and open. I had a great time. Our tour guide was superb. I would’ve liked more time at many of the places we visited, especially those that dealt with art and or art libraries.
Rachel Resnik, Newton, Massachusetts
I loved it! Beautiful architecture, art, people, food. Our tour guide Alejandro was amazing.Very knowledgeable, friendly, and open.
Susan Gerber, Stuart, Florida
Fascinating, interesting. We didn’t know what to expect and things passed our expectations. The people we met were all warm and friendly and we were made to feel very welcomed. Our tour guide and driver made every aspect of the tour fun and exciting. I totally enjoyed the ceramic studio as I like art and my husband, having worked in the automotive parts industry, enjoyed the antique cars. There were NO problems with our tour. My only suggestion would have been to have 1 more day there and see an art museum and Parliament Building or some time at a beach.

Far more diverse than I was expecting. Loved being able to ask a million questions about Cuban culture — and get answers.
