The tour was a great introduction to Havana. However, a few too many long Spanish names and dates to take it all in properly. Also, my guide ‘forgot’ to mention that, by extending the tour, I owed him another 20 CUC an hour. He also wasn’t aware that the tour had been prepaid.

Raoul was an extremely charming and friendly person having in depth knowledge of Havanna and it’s history, answering questions and making every effort to make the tour a great success. He even proved to be an expert photographer allowing me to take home fantastic Fotos. Thank you! Full marks. A+

We had a very pleasant experience with our guide around Cuba.

Our guide, Salia, was a very sweet, informative guide. She took us around to see many of the popular sights. We got to see the squares, monuments, mingle with some of the people, and got to go inside the beautiful cathedral. We really enjoyed our walking tour. Wish the weather would have cooperated alittle more, but that couldn't be helped.
