This opportunity to deeply explore Cuban culture was life changing. Visiting with the Jewish community as well as the general Cuban community in numerous person-to-person and cultural activities created what will certainly be a lifelong connection to Cuban and its residents. Our guide, Louis-Gabriel Bideau was instrumental in fostering this deep connection through his impeccable planning and execution of all the activities down to the smallest details and even more importantly his in-depth knowledge of Cuba and exceptional leadership skills. He had a gift of showing warmth and respect for each tour participant as well as every Cuban that we came in contact with. He was clearly loved and appreciated by all the Cuban providers that he dealt with and modeled for us the art of being an open and respectful visitor. Don't miss this tour or this tour guide, Louis-Gabriel Bideau. A fantastic experience from start to finish in Cuba.

Shalom Cuba is a fantastic program. We loved the opportunities to visit with members of the tiny but very vibrant Jewish communities. One caveat:The program iis really active - -very full days and evenings with limited opportunities to rest and recover. Tour director and Cuban guide were beyond wonderful.
