You truly do get a taste of the Cuban culture and cuisine in this tour. We had Rae as our guide. She was fantastic. Lots of energy. There were 4 sets of people in our 10 person tour group and she spent individual time with each of us and yet all of us at the same time. Would totally recommend her and the tour.
