    Loved, loved, loved the 8 day tour. Ivan was wonderful, so knowledgeable and friendly! Plus it was my partner's birthday and he made it so special for us. Thank you Ivan for making our time in Cuba better than we'd even expected.

    Disinterested Guide who made minimal effort. Accomodation at Casa's on most nights was hardly charming and more like a hostel environment. Overall disappointing.
