Very interesting, intelligent and well spoken guide. Nice pace, good interaction with group, lots of good information and easy to follow.
Because our tour guide sheila made our experience in Habana wonderful. She explained to us the story, history, etc of cuba in a very balance and informative way. I came away with a different view of cuba.. And thanks to strawberry we have a free way of knowing a country and donate to a certain project. Thanks to sheila!!
Over the top job! Very thorough!
Your guide was a nice guy but he didn't seem as knowledgeable as the guide who did the historical tour. Though he was very friendly and keen he seemed a little nervous. I'm guessing he was new.
It was a very interesting tour with a lot of background information, that is important to understand Cuba and Havanna. The guide was competent and he showed us lots of interesting spots. Thank you very much
Guide was great good knowledge and good English
Thank you Yosvani for a great and interesting tour! We really had a great time!
Our Revolution Tour with Javier was fantastic. My 14 year old daughter and I learned so much from listening to Javier talk about life in Cuba, the history of the country and the Revolution. It was a much more authentic tour than many I've experienced and Javier welcomed questions and didn't hesitate to share a "local's" point of view with us. Plus it was a lot of fun! I would highly recommend Strawberry Tours and would have gladly done another tour with them if we'd had the time.
Nelson was a great guide, however we were expecting more anecdotes from the revolutionary period,. There was a lot of repetition for the Historical tour, which we did on the same day. Also we later went to the Revolution Museum, which was a HUGE disappointment!!!! There were very little exhibits in the museum, and majority in our opinion, sounded like leading party propaganda!!!! Very, very overpriced, no value whatsoever! So we would not advise going there, and felt it was a waste of time. This very interesting period of CubanRevolution, Museum did a very poor job in presenting it!!! Also price for tourists and for Cubans speaks volumes ofhow tourists are treated in Cuba, for which we have been charged 24 times more than Cubans!!!!
The tour was very interesting. The guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all our questions. My husband and I, are very pleased with these tours. We learned a lot about Cuba, and the its revolution. Thank you so much for having such a wonderful tour.
Good overall information - tour not too long and covered each area with enough info and then moved on so never became boring.
The Revolutionary tour was very interesting. Our guide Javier was very passionate about Havana
We were very happy with this revolution tour. Our guide was very nice, his information very accurate and he answered all our questions. We can certainly recommend this tour!
We found our tour guide very easily. Our tour guide, Javier, spoke very good English. The length of the tour was perfect. Not too long and drawn out, and plenty of time to ask questions. Javier was well informed and receptive to all our questions. The delivery of his information kept us very much interested, there was never a dull boring moment. He is a great story teller :-) We thoroughly enjoyed the Revolution Tour.
Nelson was a great guide with loads of local knowledge. He answered all our questions and also showed us a great place to eat afterwards that we never would have found without him!
It was a great tour and the guide was very interesting
Javier was simply brilliant. He clearly explained the history, helped us understand more about Cuba and patiently answered our questions. He spent a long time with us and was genuienly interested in helping us understand life and history in Cuba. It was a F'ing AWESOME TOUR! Muchas gracias Javier!
I was alone, Javier gave me all the space to ask all my questions. I did not only learn about the revolution but also a lot about other things in Cuba
The Cuba Revolution tour was so fascinating! We learned about the participants and some of the strikes or maneuvers. We also learned about how the revolution impacted life for the Cuban people. Javier is a knowledgeable tour guide and answered all our questions. Thank you Javier-this tour was one of the highlights of our visit to Havana.
The guys were very passionate and we liked their stories.
Our toor guide made the tour very enjoyable. He asked the group not to smoke and we were very appreciative. With only about 10 people in our group we could easily position ourselves to hear the guide. He spoke very clearly and loudly so it was easy to understand He helped us to understand the Cuban people and the challenges they face. We would highly recommend the tour and guide to others.
The tour was really good, but it was a bit shorter than expected.
The guide Javier was very knowledgeable. He spoke English well and conducted the entire tour in a very professional manner. He was also very pleasant and my wife an I learned so much about the history of the revolution. The one complaint that we have about this tour and the others which we undertook had nothing to do with the guide per se. All your tours end too far away from their starting point forcing all the participants to walk long distances to get back to their hotels or other places where they are staying. This is unacceptable especially on the Nightlife Tour.
Very knowledgeable and friendly guides! We truly enjoyed the Cuban Revolution Tour and highly recommend it.
