Suzanne's review for another Explore tour
“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.”

“In Vientiane I arrived early and visited Museum of Contemporary Art which had amazing wood tree root carvings. I think it would be good to suggest a visit as an option for people in their free time. Its something like 10k from the city centre, so best if people share a taxi. ”

“Nepal was an amazing country with such diversity and so much culture to learn about. Seeing the mountains on the trek was a huge highlight. Its worth understanding that being in the mountains is unpredictable so the weather can change quickly & mountain views can vary too. If people feel the cold, they should consider bringing heat pads & plenty of layers to use in the tea houses. Changing money at the airport was the best value & ease although ATMs were available in the cities .A walking pole was essential on the trek as was very helpful while descending the many steps especially after rain. Our guide Udaya was very knowledgeable & able to assist us in any way needed throughout the trip. We felt very safe everywhere we travelled. Our group really got on well which helped to have a very relaxed & enjoyable time . There was so many amazing highlights, watching sunrise over the Annapurna range, meeting a rhino on our nature walk, white water rafting, colourful temples & very genuine locals.”
