I came to know about Jason & Travel Cuba Tours from leisure.com & needless to say they didn't disappoint. Jason was beyond helpful with knowledge & advice as we decided on final locations & timing. He arrange a 6 day tour with car & accommodations for 6 girls. Upon arrival we took a taxi to our first casa & were welcomed by the most gracious host. We were immediately also greeted by Liena (our guide for the entire week) & we reviewed our itinerary for the week. The next morning we started our epic adventure through this magical country. Liena was so helpful the entire duration of our trip (translator, negotiator & last minute changes due to weather included) none of which were an issue. Her attention to detail & focus on us seeing all we wanted to see & have the best time ever were above & beyond. Our driver was able to laugh with us along our long rides & tolerate us 6 sometimes very lively girls. Every town we stayed in the hosts were beyond gracious (Havana, Trinidad, Matanzas). We saw everything we wanted & did everything we wanted to do.
We loved our nature excursions. The caves and waterfalls were amazing. We enjoyed seeing life in the cities and towns, including the fruit and vegetable open air market. The show at the Tropicana was certainly an enjoyable and memorable evening. A particular stand out in our host/hostess homes (which were all great) was our 2nd stop in their charming village in Montanzas. They were so welcoming and caring. All of our hosts received us as they would welcome friends.
I feel like we not only got to experience the history & beauty of this country but I feel we gained friends along the way & I can't wait to go back..... I would never go back without booking with Travel Cuba Tour! Gracias & Viva Cuba!
