"It was a wonderful vacation. I loved seeing all the sights. Havana was so interesting-certainly gave me an insight into the history behind Cuba. The trip to the mountains was special-beautiful scenery and delicious food. What I will remember the most is the people. Everyone we met (Gilberto, Daniel, Merky, Jackie and the security guards) were so welcoming and really went out of their way to see that we had a wonderful time. The breakfasts were to die for and, I thought the dinner we had at the house was definitely the best meal we had-actually was one of the best meals I've ever had. My favorite part of the trip was having a birds-eye view of how life goes on-watching the children swim for hours, the men heading out for a day of fishing and the teenagers hanging out in the evening. They all seemed so happy. I also loved watching the sun set while drinking a glass of wine. It was a wonderful vacation! Thank you for all you did to make it so special. " - Ann S.
" I would like but bottom line was the trip was AMAZING!! The accommodations and places we saw were wonderful but I think we all really loved the people and getting know them. Daniel, Yosef and Alejandro (security guys), Merky, Yaki, Gilberto...were all so wonderful. Our best dinner we had was at Lamar after the Vinales trip!! We would love to get together with you soon to share all of our memories and find how we could send some things to everyone there. Everything was sooo wonderful! Thank you again and we will touch base soon!"

" I cannot thank you enough for the absolutely amazing trip to Cuba you planned for me and my girlfriends this past weekend. From the pink convertible 1957 Chevy to the incredible house on the sea in Santa Fe, to the private salsa lessons--no detail was overlooked! I am so glad I found you and will be highly recommending your services to ALL my friends and family! Next stop will be your assistance in planning my 50th birthday party in Morocco! Thank you thank you thank you for such an authentic and amazing Cuban adventure!!!" - Heidi G.
"Thank you so much for arranging the wonderful People to People Exchange trip to Cuba! You covered every last detail making it seamless for our group to experience Cuba to the fullest. From the educational tour of Havana to the salsa lessons, to name a few of the activities, you opened our eyes to the rich culture of Cuba and its people. We are definitely looking forward to our next trip with Sea to See!" - Karen O.
"Sea to See Travel planned a family trip for us to Havana, Cuba over the New Year's holiday and it was so much more than we ever could have hoped for. In addition to the fascinating and educational time we spent in exotic and romantic Havana, we were also treated to outstanding day trips in classic cars to the beautiful Valley of Vinyales and to the more far flung regions of Matanzas and Colon. However, it is not what we saw that made our trip with Sea to See so special, though what we saw was incredible, it was the beauty of the relationships forged with the Cuban people that will keep the trip forever etched in our hearts and minds.
Our trip with Sea to See enabled us to get to meet and make friends of the Cuban people. We were able to see where and how they live and to get to know them on a more personal level than we could ever have imagined. It was the people in this special place that made the trip so special and we want to thank Sea to See Travel for making this experience possible. " - Paul M.

"Sea to See Travel LLC was the BOMB!!! We heard that both the excursions and connections made through the (cruise ship) were horrible, government controlled activities and very little personalized fun. Basically a pro castro speech and hours on a bus." - Rebecca W.
