The tour is fully escorted. From the minute you land in Havana until you return home, you are in the conscientious care of fulltime multi-lingual Cuban guides. Together with a professional bus chauffeur, they are available to assist you in every way.

These connections create one of a kind experience for a trip to Cuba. Jimís tours have received rave reviews from the participants.

...It is with great pleasure that I write a letter of recommendation for any tours of Cuba organized by Jim Ryerson. I traveled with Jim on the 2015 VFP (veterans For Peace) tour, and was very impressed with his longstanding, firsthand knowledge of the country, and with his many contacts. I went on the trip alone, but found those traveling to be very open, and the country to be very friendly, inviting and easy to get around.  With Jimís assistance I was able to venture out on my own, never feeling unsafe. Any future groups traveling with Jim will have a thoughtful enlightening, and enjoyable trip.

...This trip was a defining moment and a game changer for me and I have you to thank for it !  I had some apprehensions about going but you were patient and talked me through all my thousands of questions along with providing some previous contacts who were just as thrilled with trip that I was.
