Beautiful Cuban people
Teresa Mera From USA At

“All the trip coordination was right on. We enjoy La Habana but were mostly grateful to our contacts there (Jose, Edi) who made sure to provide vouchers, information, recommendations on where to eat, The Factory of Art, etc. Our tour guide Brice was also wonderful, explaining to us all the historic points of the city while driving around in a classic car. Our trip to Trinidad was a long bus ride but well worth it. Ruben our host at the casa were we stayed made us feel right at home. He had a beautiful house and paid great attention to detail. Beautiful family! Luis our morning tour guide gave us a beautiful and true Cuban tour of Trinidad. The salsa class with Colorado and all the other young men and women was a lot of fun. Trinidad is a beautiful colonial city with a lot of charm. Took the bus to our next destination right around the corner from our casa. Arrived in Varadero with our host Nancy, a very nice lady with a lovely house. Her assistant, Odalisa, prepared wonderful breakfasts with sandwiches, eggs, fruit, juices, coffee. We went to enjoy the beautiful pristine, blue aqua beach five minutes from Nancy's house.
I strongly recommend this Cuban experience to anyone.”
Had a great time
Matthias Walter From England At
4 - Very Good
“The service and the organization of the trip thru Maayke were very good and everything worked out as planned. Thank you! From my experience and to future travellers I must say that three nights at Trinidad are too many - especially when you are staying another two nights at la Boca. The rest of the trip was nicely planned and the Casa particulars are all at a good level with friendly hosts.”
MiCuba was great, will use them again
Mary From Holland At
5 - Excellent
“We had eight days with Maayke, the accommodation was very good, and generally the transfers were satisfactory. Tour guides in Trinidad and Havana were very efficient, interesting and well worth while, particularly when on limited time. Casa's were clean and hosts helpful, particularly Rey in Trinidad. We did have trouble with one transfer, the driver was rude and kept getting lost; however we made a complaint to Maayke, and are quite satisfied with how they dealt with our complaint. Maayke put together a package that suited our requests and interests at reasonably short notice, if I return to Cuba I will use them again.”
Great job MiCuba

“We just came back from MiCuba arranged trip to Cuba (Jan 2018). My husband and I had private transfers (Havana - Vinales - Cienfuegos - Trinidad - Santa Clara - Remidos - Cayo Santa Maria) and excursions (Vinales and Trinidad) arranged by Maayke. Maayke and Sophia's arrangement was impeccable. All arrangement went smooth as a Swiss clockwork without any delay and hiccup. All arranged Casa Pariculars were excellent choices (located conveniently near center of towns and rooms were attended cleaned and their owners were very nice.) Private Guides to all excursions spoke English fluently and their personalities were warm and excellent in guiding and explanation. Great job. Thank you sincerely. Our next trip to Cuba's east will be definitely arranged by Maayke. Best of professionalism. The team well deserves high recommendation.”
