Reviews from our Guests:

"Thanks ACUBA for the wonderful introduction to Cuba: to it's Artists, it's Music, it's Traditions. I loved our strolls through OLD HAVANA, our fabulous meals in AMAZING "Paladars" OBAMA's favorite TOO!  Visiting F.A.C - Cuban Art Factory - bridged the gap for me between the Old, the Present and the Future, with Contemporary ART and the young professionals  of Havana "on the town".... All in All a wonderful trip..."

"A truly warm and wonderful way to see the real Cuba, its deep, rich culture and art. The food was exquisite.  Luis was a warm, gracious and knowledgeable host who knew to show us sides of his country beyond regular tourism. I am ready to return tomorrow!"

"An unforgettable trip into a world of beautiful people. Why go to Cuba?  It’s the people who make you want to go back and back--and if you are lucky, with Luis. Don't miss the experience you will remember all your life."                                                     

James Ridgeway, Washington, DC

"We visited Cuba twice in the last 6 months. Once on an overpriced bus tour and one private tour with Luis Granados. Night and day different experience. Luis is a Cuban and knows all the great places and best restaurants and all of the "in" spots. We loved our visit to Cuba with Luis and would highly recommend him to all our friends."
