International Expeditions - Complete CubaAuthor: Vic Garcia (More Trip Reviews by Vic Garcia)
Date of Trip: January 2014
Our young Cuban tour guide Claudia was very good in giving us a understanding of her country. With her ever-present smile she was an excellent ambassador for her island nation. She was one of our best "local guides" we have experienced. She took the time to present material to us and had the courtesy to always face us when she spoke - even in the rolling bus.
Bolivar Sanchez, our IE Tour Director, representing the company in Cuba, was outstanding and continuously made sure all was well with each of us and ensured our trip experience was exceptional. His professionalism and attention to detail was especially good and saved us hours, from our arrival in Cienfuegos to our last day in Havana and our late departure.
We all were very appreciative for all the extras he provided for us during the trip. The special gift of the personal thumb-drive with the 15 minute video of the trip he made with his Go Pro Hero3 was excellent and so well done - he spent a lot of personal hours editing and finalizing so we could all have a copy.
Those days on the road when we were feeling a little low on energy he would stop and buy us all an ice cream - especially that day when we exchanged buses.
As we drove into Havana and stopped at the Plaza de la Revolución we saw a classic red and white Chevrolet while we were walking around and photographing. Boli took the opportunity to get the young man to pick us up at the Melia Cohiba with his friend on our departure day and give us all a tour of Havana in two classic Chevrolets. Boli was always thinking outside the box - impressive!
If someone wants to get a broader perspective of Cuba (more than just music and art) one should consider International Expeditions Complete Cuba.
