This was a life changing experience and I recommend it to anyone who personally wants to learn more about Afro-Cuban Culture. We had the greatest guide who surprised me with flowers on my birthday! This was a very special and personalized experience, and we had a great time learning about the community, culture and religion.

This was a phenomenal tour/experience of Afro Cuban culture. My guide Endimo was exceptionally great!!!! I had so many questions and Endimo was able to answer them all. I was even able to understand my own cultural similarities, thanks to Endimo. Babalawo was excellent he also answered all my curiosities. I had excellent Afro Cuban food, the chef was nice and she was very accommodating. We had a great Spanglish(half Spanish, half English)conversation, there was a special ending with singing and dancing. I have to say the was a great tour. Also I meet Adriana she embodies empowerment for Afro Cuba’s and women. Again this is an excellent tour when I come back with my husband we will do this tour again.

Our guide, Eli, is phenomenal; she is extremely knowledgeable about Afro-Cuban history and culture. Eli passionately described the origin of Osha or Santería religion, and how it is still relevant in Cuban culture. It is an authentic experience that I highly recommend.
