"We had such a good time in Cuba! WTE did a great job putting it together, our only complaint was too action-packed & too much good food. We had V.I.P entrees to so many arts organizations & met fascinating artists, not to mention seeing all of the beautiful colonial historic sites. Count me in for the next adventure..."
