- An excellent two week tour of Cuba, seeing both the more tourist sites as well as some of the hidden gems. Explore was superb in the planning of the trip, and were very helpful in booking our flights.
Hotel accommodation was rather good for the most part, though the two locations used for camping, are, in my opinion currently unfit for purpose. The supplied tents had broken zips and were no longer waterproof, a major issue in the rainy season. Additionally the wash room facilities at both campsites would struggle to cope with larger groups. At one location, only one gent toilet was working (apparently has been for over a year) and that had no running water.
The trip was varied and interesting, though I felt, compared to other Explore guides, that the Tour Guide used the itinerary as a rule book, and rarely added extra information compared to other Explore guides that I have experienced.
