A great trip. Every meal was excellent. I loved that we could have whatever we wanted to eat and drink. And each restaurant was different from the next. I can't pick a favorite. We ate by the water, in the fields of an organic farm, in an old mansion, in a new mansion, in a rooftop terrace, and more. We were serenaded by a group of musicians. We drove through Havana for an hour in vintage convertibles with the top down and horns honking We toured a tobacco and coffee farm. We socialized in the living room at our Casa. We enjoyed slide shows of our photos in the dining room, where we also had excellent fresh fruit and juice and eggs for each breakfast. Jason and Santiago were gracious and knowledgable guides, making sure everything ran smoothly and taking us to places that were perfect for photography.. Our driver was first-rate. The trip was easy and fun.
Had a great time. Wonderful experience. Very informative. Great food. Jason, tour director, Santiago, tour guide, Juanito, bus driver all exceeded expectations. I have now have Cuban friends on FB.
Had a great time. One of the best groups of people I've ever traveled with. Thought Santiago, the Cuban guide, was excellent. The B&B or casa particular also was excellent and very comfortable. From my perspective, improvements would include: substituting a light lunch or dinner for a heavy one. Mainly, it would have been better to have been able to spend less time over a meal because heavy meals generally too 2 hours to complete. I also would have liked a museum thrown in, particularly on a rainy day when the itinerary changed. I would have preferred that over spending yet more time seated and drinking at the Hotel Nacional. As for the photography aspect of the trip, I would not have minded some critical feedback on our photos. I enjoyed seeing others' photos.
The best trip ever. Jason and his local team in Cuba went above and beyond - jam packed days meeting wonderful people, learning about Cuba, eating great food! Our Casa Particular was clean and comfortable with a warm, and efficient staff. Highly recommend!
