A sincere thank you for an incredible, once in a lifetime experience.  Probably more than half the people listed our guides as a trip highlight. It’s hard for any of us to imagine what the trip would have been like without Daniel, Alexis, and Yunier. We returned home profoundly touched by the people we met and the places we visited during a memorable week in Cuba. With tremendous gratitude, Andre

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed our trip to Cuba. Daniel and Yariel were a warm, fun team. We loved the Yellow Bus. The restaurants were great, Lupe and family were also great.  If I go back (which I hope I do) I would take a lot more time to learn about and visit the architecture of Havana. I had no idea how amazing that would be. Thank you!

I don’t know where to start about our recent trip to Cuba.   Everyone has agreed it was the trip of our lifetime!  As I mentioned to you before, while in Australia I was involved in the travel industry and this trip far surpassed anything from Barcelona to Beijing.  I want to go back again and bring my sister and maybe Lexie and Dylan .  I wish you luck and if anyone has doubts please tell them to call or write me.  Thank you once again.  This was the best!! Cheers, Steph

Please extend our thank you to all involved in our booking! It was perfect from start to finish. Aylin really did make our trip so special! She's an amazing person. So sweet, clever, and accommodating 24/7  Kelly M., San Francisco November 2016

August 2016  I wanted to take a moment to give you some feedback on our recent long weekend in Havana.  The trip was amazing. It was one of the greatest learning experiences of our lives.  Ernesto did a great job of arranging activities and our guide David was absolutely wonderful.  Our driver, Damian, was great.  The accommodations at our casa were outstanding.  The highlight of our trip was the interaction with the Cuban people. We enjoyed our time in Havana and we cannot wait to go back. Thank you all at Cuba Travel Adventures Group for making the process a painless experience and arranging the itinerary with superb Cuban guides. I have already recommended you to colleagues interested in going to Cuba.  Thanks again, The Osbornes


Daniel and Rolando did a marvelous job for us on the recent trip I completed with my Grandson, Jack. Both men were so enjoyable and took care of our every desire.  Jack and I both felt that the trip was more than we had ever anticipated.  Please send Daniel’s address as I want to send him a book to pass on to a friend of his.  You and your staff are all wonderful and provide a great experience. Regards, Barry Kannon, Vice-Chairman of the Board/CAO

​Great trip. Thank you! Unique trip! To that extent I wouldn't change anything.

Thanks again, Manny, I appreciate all that you, Soo and your team did to encapsulate complexity and let the rest of us have a unique experience of a lifetime. I learned a lot about Cuba, though the more I learned, the more I knew that I did not understand! I had many meaningful experiences and connections, some sobering. I also enjoyed the fun and camaraderie that you made possible. All that in a week is really quite amazing.     Richard
