“This was a great whistle stop tour of Cuba giving a fantastic insight into Cuban life, Politics and history thanks to our excellent tour leader Jose. Lots of time was spent travelling in the bus but that was anticipated as per the trip notes. However it meant short stays in each destination, especially Santiago de Cuba. The trip met and exceeded my personal expectations but I would have liked extra time in certain places. I really enjoyed the jungle trek and sleeping out under the stars.”

“This trip was a make or break trip for me with Explore, after a couple of poor quality trips previously. It was a make-I had an amazing time! The bikes were much better quality than on previous trips and were well suited to the trip, which made all the difference. The tour guide Cham was also excellent. The cycling was nice and challenging too, with varied routes and scenery. Overall we did and saw a whole variety of things, so I feel as though I saw a lot of Sri Lanka. Being vegetarian, it was great to be able to find an array of tasty food wherever we went.”
