This was my first Road Scholar trip, but it certainly won't be my last. It exceeded my expectations in almost every way. I could never have arranged such a comprehensive trip as this on my own or with the typical tour company.

Just returned from Cuba Today--Remedios and Havana, a delightful week-long adventure in 2 very different cities. Our group was compatible, the guides knowledgeable, and the hotels and coach transportation were top notch. We were able to experience Cuba from an insiders perspective. The Cuban people welcomed us graciously. I highly recommend this trip.

The Road Scholar people were wonderful, warm and welcoming. They had great rapport with the Cuban native and were great with our group. I can't say enough good things about the program, our guides and employees!

A visit to Cuba with Road Scholar helped me see, at ground level, the effects both good and bad that our country, its people and its policies have had on another country and another people. It will inform my actions as a US citizen. (And yes, the people, the smiles, the food, the music and more were all wonderful to experience.) I'd urge anyone to make this their next trip!

This trip will open the eyes and hearts of even the most educated. I learned more than I hoped and gained a much more positive attitude toward Cuba and its people.

This is an excellent program for better understanding historical interactions between Cuba and America, problems in the relationship, Cuba's challenges in the 21st Century, and how we might be better neighbors.

This tour gives a great overview of Cuba in a compact timeframe and is better priced that other tours I considered. It was good to experience both rural and urban Cuba and to learn how complicated life is there..

We just finished a trip to Cuba and even the 6 hour layover in Havana airport does not dampen our enthusiasm for the experience we had! Fantastic group of travelers and leader and guide. Highly highly recommend!

Wonderful program which I can recommend highly, providing a nice mixture of activities striking a good balance between too much and too little. Very good for a weeklong tour.

A wonderful trip, especially experiencing a smaller town in the countryside, traveling through the country and then enjoying the color, music and energy of Havana. I learned so much about the Cuban people and truly was said to leave. The skill, generosity, professionalism of our guides, Jim and Yohandra, was spectacular. The group was curious, interested, flexible and engaged. Road Scholar introduced us to so many aspects of the culture, art, music, economy and so many different people which we never could have experienced on our own. I have wanted to go to Cuba for years and am so glad I didn't wait any longer.

If you are considering a trip to Cuba, don't delay! Road Scholar makes the country come alive and the faces you see, the sounds you hear and the sights you witness will stay with you far beyond your return home!

Loved our trip to Cuba many thanks to Jim for making our trip informative, and fun. Can't wait to take another trip on Road Scholar

Cuba is a must, sooner the better. I now have a different perspective on a lot of things. First trip a guide is essential. On my Cuban trip we used Roads Scholars, they were absolutely spot on all facets. Every day was different, well thought out. Both the Roads host and our native Cuban guide were very good, fluent in language and customs. If asked about Cuba,one of my companion travelers said he would answer "it's complicated". So true

I found out after I could no longer withdraw from the program without penalty that I would have to stay in Charlotte overnight both before and after the tour. I therefore had to pay $345.60 addition expenses that was not stated upfront by Road Scholar. I learned from four other participants on the tour that they were reimbursed by Road Scholar for additional expenses that they incurred under these circumstances.

The Road Scholar and Cuban guides in this program conveyed in-depth knowledge and information each step along the way in our itinerary.They answered ALL questions fully and openly, getting back to us in the group with results of research when they needed to.The two of them complemented each other really well - they are smart, experienced, humorous, well-prepared, articulate - by adding their own input on topics the group wanted to hear more about. Our stops to visit the dance studio, community centers, church, museums, sugar cane factory, printing shop, cigar factory, family home, gave us access to places we may not have been aware were available or accessible. The guides also were flexible about the itinerary, adding an optional visit to a beach with swimming in clear blue warm ocean water, with drinks available on the beach, and dinner just steps away afterwards. Our bus driver went out of his way to make the added beach visit possible. Kudos.
