What Our Customers Say About Cultural Island Travel

Lenore Cymes

Ari was wonderful and took care of us like a protective Papa – which was funny since we were both much older than him. He made sure we got to see and do and dance.

“Ari is intelligent, relaxed and in the right job! He knows Havana’s nooks and crannies and points them out. He understands Americans/North Americans and their expectations and leaves no room for complaints or concerns. For me, our every need was anticipated and met! He surpassed expectations.”
