Thank youuu ecocuba

We chose this company based on other reviews and were not disappointed. The trip was very easy to book, with a simple email reservation for the date we planned to travel to Havana. Upon arriving, they requested we send another confirmation email which we did from the hotel lobby. Easy peasy. On the day of, they were waiting at the hotel entrance for us, with welcoming smiles and ready to go! We were excited to see outside of the resort on our first tour to Cuba. the guide was very friendly, easy to talk to, and she speaks English very well. I felt I could ask her anything about Cuba, the culture, the people and everything along the way, not just about Havana. She was more than happy to answer all of my questions and explained all the sites as we made our tour . Our driver was also friendly and a good driver.
