    I thoroughly enjoyed my tour. My guide was fantastic and made every effort to keep organized and give us his very best! I enjoyed staying with Cuban families, the accommodations were clean and simple. We had the right mix of activities and down time. A memorable experience!

    Had an amazing time, saw an amazing place and met some amazing people!!! Natalia - our guide- was a gem. She took us on a tour through Havana, explained to us where all the different influences are from, how to spend our money wisely, where to eat, where to change money,... Vinales offered some great homestays, a walk through a botanical garden and the tobacco plantations. We also had a great dinner with the tour on an organic farm, with great food and drinks. You felt completely welcome, which is something I was somewhat scared of as I traveled alone. Maria La Gorda offered a lot of free time. We booked a sunset cruise, which was about $20 but offered free drinks ;). You also have the option to scuba dive and snorkel, both are fun but don't offer the greatest underwater experience. Weather and drinks were amazing. The food in Maria La Gorda was .. well disappointing after the meals we had in Vinales. It's a place just for tourists so it's understandable. All in all a fantastic trips! I would go back, once I crossed off the rest on my bucket list!

    This was the most amazing tour/ holiday i have ever been on. The people were so friendly and super welcoming and its makes such a difference when people are genuinely interested in where you come from and go beyond the call of duty to make you happy. The guide (Valerie) was able to answer questions about politics, local flora and fauna, local customs, menu options, places to shop or go out. He was also very funny and took time to get to know everyone. On our visit to Maria La Gorda, where many of the activities were optional, Valerie walked around the resort on a regular basis to hang out with us and make sure that we were all ok. When the tour ended I had a serious case of the post-holiday blues as we became a merry bunch filled with hangovers and personal jokes. People should be warned that this tour is awesome and you will leave wanting more.

    Cuba is a beautiful but challenging country to run a tourist orientated trip in a communist country. It was an excellent taste of latin america. Be warned - Cuba is very expensive, tourism is their main income and everything charged.

    I absolutely loved the trip. Our guide Ossie was fabulous. He went over and above the call of duty. I would suggest you find a new hotel for Havana, Hotel El Colina is AWFUL. I had a broken air con, broken lock on my door and the toilet didnt flush.
