Exceptional service from beginning to end! I'm from L.A. and for the longest time, have always dreamt about traveling to Cuba.

However, when originally researching how to get there from the U.S. (despite the progress between the two countries), I was met with many conflicting and confusing "resources" that did not provide any solutions. But that all changed when I found Cuba Travel Services.

Last month, I was finally able to travel to Cuba and experience it before the floodgates open up. It was the most spectacular trip thus far (Coincidently, I was even there for the U.S. Embassy reopening!)

Andrea Calderon from CTS, provided and setup everything I'd need to go. This included informative and up-to-date knowledge of travel to Cuba (she answered all my 28628100 questions), necessary documents, my visa, and the round trip chartered flight from Miami to La Habana, Holguin to Miami (they have multiple departing locations in Cuba.)

Cuba Travel Services is awesome and it could not have been a more seamless process.

Gracias por todo!

This is my first time traveling with this travel agency and airline.*suncountry* My flight was supposed to leave at 11:35 am from tampa to cuba on 3/5/15. It is 3/6/15 and it is 2:28am. Guess where I am. Miami!!! I checked my bags at 7:30 this morning. Anticipating my flight to Havana where we have a car rented also through Cuba travel. To make this long story short we did not board the plane until shortly after 6pm because the airport kept saying the plane had some part they had to fix. Then every hour the info was that they were waiting for the part. Then part arrived and wasn't fixed, and wasn't fixed. During the whole time we waited we were only offered a $10 food voucher which everyone knows in the airport does not buy you a full meal, not even 1/2 a meal.

At last minute, before boarding we were all happy plane was ready to go. But then, we were told flight crews time expired and we had to fly to Miami first to swap out the crew and then fly to cuba. We didn't like it but the thought of movement was nice. Flight crew could've flown us to Cuba and waited there instead of making us wait here. So we arrive in miami and are informed crew would be on in about 20 min. We start seeing crew, we're happy, and then there it is again. We are delayed because the plane 'still' has electrical problems. Still? We were informed later by a plane mechanic that the plane flew to miami with problems . So all 100 plus of us lives were put in danger. Our lives were risked. Why did they do this. I would've rather stayed in Tampa where my bed is and come back the next day. While on the plane we were not aloud to get off for about a good hour or so. Customs would nor let us. All we were offered was a cup of room temp water. No snack, nada. When we finally exit into Miami terminal we were given a boarding pass. Supposedly to get back on plane. Well guess what , around 1:00 am flight cancelled. You can only imagine people's reactions. Cubans reactions!! We got a nutrigrain bar now and a soda. That's it.

No straight answers from anyone this whole flight and what people want to hear is the TRUTH! !!!!! My car rental in Cuba probably will not be refunded. May not even have a car when we get there. I spent a whole day of my vacation like a prisoner in an airport! ! Come on . It is 4:15 am now. In one hour I will have been awake a full 24 hours. No offering of blankets or anything from airport and it is freezing. There are mothers who have infants that need their formula which was packed under the plane. OMG......this was the most horrible experience.

We spent three weeks touring Nepal and India. We can really recommend Safhands Travel and especially Mr. Rohit. The tour and itinerary suggested by Rohit was excellent. The service received by the Safehands representatives, welcomers, drivers and guides was first class. We will treasure our memories of this holiday. Thank you Rohit.

Me my wife and our daughter had no problems all over the tour as Mr Rohit has planned exaclty the way we wanted it to be. Besides then a small room problem in Shimla ca use the room was small and there don't have running hot water as other hotels cause we had a child and we were first time feeling the chills of winter but it's was settled by Rohit as he promised us. Regarding the firts driver I think he is not fit to be a tour driver, beginning was okay but towards then end he was slacking but that to was settled by Rohit, by giving us a new driver.but overall we was happy and enjoyed the cold weather which we wanted to experience once in a life time as we are from Malaysia. We will come back to India and will get Rohit from Safe Hands to do the arrangements again. Will recommend to all who wish to travel to India SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. Thank you Rohit SAFE HANDS TRAVELS. All the best you.

Excellent travel company. There were only 4 ladies traveling however, throughout the trip, we felt very safe and in good hands. Excellent accommodation, vehicles, sightseeing, guides and their followup care. The driver was very patient with our none ending shopping request. Would recommend to all
