We'd like to introduce you to Jose Luis who leads tours for us in Cuba. He constantly receives great feedback from those who travel with him with typical comments being "superb, nothing was too much trouble" and "great local knowledge, he definitely enhanced the tour."
Alongside answering a few questions for us, Jose Luis also said "Working with Explore has been a different way to discover Cuba, through a great range of experiences interacting with its nature, its history and its people. Explore also brings a new impact on every place visited - an Explore tourist becomes a great help for the locals."
