We went on a tour to Cuba and have never been as well cared for on a trip as was done by Trish Oliveira. I hope you know what a treasure you have in her. She ensured our accommodations were perfect, answered myriad questions with patience and grace. The experience in Cuba was without equal. We will continue to book with your agency because of the excellence and professionalism at all parts of the booking and tour process. Please extend our gratitude to Trish and let he know that the Blums love her!

We all had a wonderful time and marveled at how clean, pretty and safe Havana was. We particularly liked our visit to the Center for Adult Day Care where we were asked to go onto a stage so the 200 or so people at the Center, a former convent, could welcome us. The Director asked if any of us wanted to say something to them in Spanish. I volunteered and in the best Spanish I could muster at the time told them "we were happy to be in Cuba, that we were from the United States of America, and that we hoped they were happy we were there." The crowd burst into a loud, sustained applause. When we came off the stage and filed past the audience, everyone reached over to shake our hands. It was very touching and almost brought us to tears as we didn't expect such a hardy welcome from Cubans.
