One of my very best travel experiences!

The instructors are what makes this a truly unique experience! Every detail was so carefully planned, though they were open and willing to accommodate individual preferences and modifications. Because of the small group and the thought that was put into every detail, I felt that I experienced Cuba in a very different and personal way. As a native Cuban and because of the love that she puts into her work, Ludi is exceptional. She offered insights that I don’t think I would have experienced otherwise. As a team, Ludi and Gunther work together to ensure the guests are happy and attended too always. They make a great team.

You will enjoy the beautiful city of Havana more with a tour guide who really appreciates the beauty and culture of her city. Ludisis will bring you to the best places where you can enjoy the nice side of Cuba. She knows the cultural hotspots, places to have a good meal, and where to go dancing and meet the locals. Ludisis is educated as a classical dancer, tourist guide and yoga teacher. She has lived and travelled in various countries. Ludisis as a guide is trustworthy, punctual, cultured and fun to be with. Ludisis understands the subtle difference between making you a plain tourist and making you a partaker of the local culture.

Thanks Ludisis for showing me Havana!

Tener a Ludisis como maestra ha sido una experiencia maravillosa. Ludisis me enseño con mucha paciencia y dedicación.Ella tiene mucho conocimiento de las materias que enseña . En sus clases no solo aprendi a bailar salsa cubana sino que también amplie mis conocimientos espirituales y de autoconocimiento. Recomiendo a Ludi 100 por ciento
