Just wanted to thankyou for organising us such a fantastic holiday! We all had a great time and everything ran so smoothly, our rooms in Havana were beautiful and we ended up with bungalows in Sol Palmeras which was a lovely surprise.

I felt I just had to write and thank you and all your team both here and in Cuba. We had a wonderful time and all the organisation of our trip was marvellous, taxis on time, great hotels etc . All your representatives looked after us so well in all of the locations we visited and they were very knowledgeable. Your descriptions in your brochure of all the hotels that we stayed in was correct to the finest details. The trips that your representatives recommended were excellent. We have already recommended you company to others and will do so in the future with glowing references. Thank you for making our trip unforgettable.C.W. Nov 2009
Everything worked very well, all our connections and transfers went smoothly. We would not hesitate to travel with Captivating Cuba again, or recommend it to others. The museum of the Revolution in Havana is very interesting and different. We really enjoyed the music everywhere aspect. Vinales to get a better view of rural life in Cuba - and the taxi journey there and back. Martino's restaurant in Breezes Jibacoa was excellent; and the La Taberna there was good also. Also Casa de Don Tomas in Vinales. A.M. Nov 2009
I just wanted to write and let you know we had a fantastic holiday in Cuba. I am so glad that we hired a car as that helped us see more of the real Cuba - we just needed better Spanish - next time we'll be better prepared. Please encourage other people to hire a car too and tell them that hitch-hiking is a common way for Cubans to get around and to please give them a lift. The hotels were superb and the transfers all worked like clockwork. Thank you so much for helping us with such a memorable holiday - I have no hesitation in recommending Capitvating Cuba. B.P.
