Hope you had a good holiday in Egypt and got there and back without ash disruption. We had a great time in Cuba and many thanks for your help. I think we have a great tale to tell from every day, usually involving the Cubans themselves. These ranged shopping with the locals in Havana and the roof top baseball games, turkey vultures in Cayo Santa Maria, sheltering from a downpour in a cigar factory with the security guards in Trinidad, and punctures, repairs and horse and cart assistance in Vinales, plus many many more punctuated by an over indulgence in fresh pineapples and other fruit bought on the street.
The hotel O’Farrill's in Havana was excellent, for us quiet enough but not far from anywhere, good spacious rooms and friendly staff. We had two different rooms for our two stays both lovely. Trinidad is magic; the people wonderful and I think I could have spent more time there.
The tourist train was not running – looking at the engine I don’t think it will ever again. We tried to get local trains but they seem to have evaporated as well. Had our best paladres meal of the trip here! (Estella - Bolivar 557e. Marquez y Mendoza) In Vinales Valley, the tourist bus for 5 CUC got us around a bit but I rented a bicycle to see more on the second day – hence the puncture(s) but a really great day with rural Cuban’s that will live in my mind forever. The bus stops at both the main hotels and goes to the sights so you can get about a bit.
Overall don’t judge Cuba on Havana; we like all the places we stayed but there was more “hassle” and queues in Havana.
Slow the pace down, nothing happens too fast. Havantour were very helpful. The taxis were good and to be commended for the transfers.
Cuba is not all about cigars and old cars; the best resources they have are the people who were always friendly and helpful – mix or miss out!
Next time (you never know) I would be brave enough to hire a car; yes there are limited road signs; yes we saw few petrol stations and yes car parking seemed to be another “Cuban experience” but it would have helped in both Trinidad and Vinales.

Multi Centre holiday
"Dear Natalie, Mark, Darren, Karen, Just wanted to say a big THANK U! to you all for the EXCELLENT SERVICE we received from you for our fantastic holiday in Cuba. Thanks to you, it was pleasant, exciting, and stress free (despite the snow and flight cancellation in London and the unexpected cold front in Cuba)..
Both Leonette and I were impressed from day one, when I first contacted Natalie and received an email the same day with all the information requested. In fact, you were all, very helpful and always followed up on my queries.
Special thanks also to Mark for re-arranging our holiday schedule (within 24hrs) at a time when we were finding it difficult to imagine being in Cuba.
Once in Cuba, we were also impressed with how smoothly it all went with the transfers etc. The Drivers were always on time (early in fact) professional and accommodating. We even received a call from Havana Tours about 4 or 5 days before departure to check that all was well and to remind us about the airport tax and pick up arrangements for the airport.
Watch this space, we’ll definitely be ‘knocking on your door’ next time we’re planning a holiday. "

Tour + Beach holiday
Having just returned from Cuba we thought we should let you know that we had a great time and can recommend Havanatour to your clients. We loved the Pearl of the Caribbean tour. There were just three of us plus the very good guide and driver of our airconditioned VW Sharan.
The time spent in Havana, Santa Clara, Trinidad, Cienfuegos was just right, getting to know the cities and their history and including so many visits. The next part of the tour based at the Moka hotel in Las Terrazas was equally excellent within a Cuban countryside environment - swimming in rivers and visiting caves, orchid gardens, waterfalls etc., seeing wildlife and having a welcome cocktail at 9.30 am by a lake on the first morning there! The hotels we stayed in and the food quality were all great, and we bought 2 Cds of the many groups whose music we enjoyed in the bars and restaurants.
The beach stay at the Blau in Varadaro was exceptional as an international luxury break although the only connection with Cuba was more rum based cocktails! We appreciated receiving a telephone call there from Havanatour to check that we were OK and that we had everything we needed.
Thanks to Escape Worldwide and Havanatour for a wonderful holiday. If anyone needs any more information, we would be happy to supply it."

Just to let you know we have had a fab holiday. Cuba was great and the guide and driver from Havanatour were
