    Testimonials

    In case you're still undecided, here are a few feedback comments from people who joined our last tour!

    "Overall it was a great trip, the music, the dance lessons, the people we met - including the dance teachers, being with Moro's family, the care they all gave us - not to mention the fab food, it was a wonderful experience, Cuba is one of the most unique places I have visited, highly recommend it. Loved the impromptu dancing with the taxi drivers, shoe mender, cafe owners, as well as strangers on the beach, every time you shimmy to music, some one will grab you to dance."

    "I felt privileged to go on this trip and to be amongst Moro and his family, to have the best dance teacher in Cuba, the best band in Cuba playing for us at class and to meet Moro's friends at our leaving party. That's the part of Cuba we experienced that you wouldn't get if you went on your own and stayed in a fancy hotel. Thanks go to Moro for arranging it all for us. I want to be there now!!! I miss it so much."

    "I just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone for the company during our vacation. I've never been on a group tour before and I can honestly say I really enjoyed it. Definite highlights for me were the people both the local experience and our group. I'm reminded of this every time I look at our pics."
