We recently booked a World Journeys trip… and we wanted to let you know how thrilled we were with it. First, we were impressed with World Journeys booklet and presentation of the trip. The information was accurate and relevant. Every one of your employees in Buenos Aires, Peru, Cuba was outstanding. The ones meeting us at the airports were punctual, friendly and accommodating. There were no hitches or oversights.

Our highest praise goes to our amazing guide through Cuba – Javier Alejandro. He was professional, very experienced and knowledgeable. He listened to our interests, summed us up and tailored our tour accordingly. Javier is highly intelligent with a great sense of humour and an understanding of his country. He is also so easy to get along with, very relaxed and answered our many questions. His local knowledge is outstanding and makes a huge difference.

Everything was so well organised with no delays or glitches. We never felt unsafe or stressed the whole trip. We really felt we met local people, ate local food and experienced Cuban life as well as the tourist side of Cuba. We stayed in range of beautiful and spotlessly clean casa particulars. They all had comfortable beds, a safe, an ensuite, air conditioning and a beautiful breakfast was provided.

We ate fabulous food in a range of places, authentic Italian, a Cuban sandwich, goat at a roadside restaurant and of course the tarte caramel! We swam in the Caribbean, saw hummingbirds and flamingos, tobacco growing and went caving. We enjoyed the art and music, the people and the architecture that makes Cuba the amazing place it is.
