“I had a nice time on this tour, it was a lovely way to spend a day trip out of Havana. With door to door transportation, personal guided tour and narrative along the way, it was insightful, fun, and eye opening to learn more about the Cuban way of life.The garden/herb tour was a highlight for me and learning about Ajiaco – the traditional dish.The best part though, was learning their Cuban Mojito recipe. I’ve now had a chance to remake at home and share with some friends, all of which loved it. I’m not sharing the secret ingredient here, because you’ll have to take the tour!!Courteous guide, answered all questions, helped take photos for me, was on time, and very knowledgeable about the area.”

“The tour highlighted the culture, history, art, music and food of Cuba. We visited a wonderful organic farm, then prepared food at a restaurant and had a Mojito making class. My daughters and I traveled to Cuba to celebrate one of their birthdays. It was a once in a lifetime trip enhanced by our wonderful tour guide Danny, his lovely wife and the Cuban people.”
