    2.0 - Rather poor

    I don't recommend this tour company. The legitimacy is questionable. They weren't able to provide the right documentation for my Global Entry application which is very strange. If you are able to plan your own trip, do it. Don't waste such a large amount on a mediocre tour company...the tour itself was about a C+ but for the price point, I expected much more. Not impressed. I'm well traveled, I've been to 34 countries and if I could have planned my own trip into Cuba, I would have. I went their last year and I was obligated to use a tour company.

    3.5 - Good

    As a seasoned traveller I have to say I was left a bit wanting. It didn't seem to have much depth, in so much as being immersed in what Cuba's about. Yes we went to a Ron shop, and a place selling some local brew and after 3 attempts found a farmer who rolled a cigar, how's about the music - nothing local, only opportunity to find it yourself ???? This tour could easily have been so much more. Raydel, our guide gave us the basics as we arrived in our designated locations and then cut us loose. It seemed we hurried up and waited and awful lot. There also seemed endless miles of travel for an awful little. My experiences with Toucan and Gecko were far superior for the same sort of tour.

    • Carlos4th June 2018
      Was very pleased with the ease that I was able to understand, and navigate your website. Have actually been looking at several other tour companies, some have played phone tag with me. Others have not bothered to return calls. Their websites have been difficult, to work and understand. Am super excited to be working with you. Am now working on finding affordable airfare. Thanks again. Looking forward to a wonderful adventure. Have already been giving several friends your info.
