Tours & Packages to Cuba
First and foremost, as a couple that has travelled extensively around the globe, this trip was without question the "best of the best" in all material respects. From the point of arrival, to the point of departure, your "on-the-ground" team did an outstanding job of maintaining the right balance between chaperone and tour guide. From the perspective of an educational experience, this trip completely dispelled our "American" perceptions, presumptions and preconceived notions of the country, the people and the culture. We left Havana with a clear sense of the history, economy, and political environment within "today's Cuba" -- a compliment to our Itinerary so carefully crafted by your team. We also left wanting more, which is always a good feeling. We would gladly return to Cuba (via Friendly Planet) down the road. Our compliments to you and your staff for an exceptional experience!

I and my wife Kathy celebrated our ninth anniversary with Friendly Planet in Havana, Cuba. Our tour guide Nancy along with our tour host Lori & driver Santos and the entire tour group provided an evening that we will always cherish. My 85 year old madre was on this tour and it was amazing to watch her dance the night away in Cuba! The wonderful service was much more than we expected. THANKS!
