Hi, I'm Gina, passionate about travel and delighted to show travellers the authentic Cuba that you would fall in love with. Travel has always been a part of my life, that's why i studied Bachelor's of Tourism, because I would love to transform the travel experiences of the people that visit the island. I intend to show you in a fun and creative way, the real Cuba, and to give experiences that allow you to know the city as a local. I will prove you with excellent recommendations about usual doubts that we often have when we are travelling in Cuba, and i will do it because, just like you, i love to enjoy each place i visit, to the fullest. Do you dare to explore this city with me?

About the Tour

Santa Clara is a modern, open, lively and agile city, it is the provincial capital and the mixture of the traditional with the contemporary. It is a city full of contrasts, where the remains of the che rest, where there is a sea wall, a pioneer of the LGBT community, and where the affection and warmth of its inhabitants will make you want to stay one more night. Culture is a fundamental part of the city, it has the second largest university in Cuba and the university atmosphere is felt. We will visit the most emblematic places and the not so touristy ones. Always according to your preferences we can choose which places to visit: - Parque del Carmen (optional) - Place where the founding of the city was celebrated - Parque Vidal- Urban Historic Center of the city.Symbol of the culture and identity of Villa Clara - Armored Train - National Monument referring to the Battle of Santa Clara - Mausoleum - Place where the remains of the heroic guerrilla of Che - Loma del Capiro (optional): The best view of the entire city. - Café Museo Revolución: Private initiative that collects the most important facts of the revolution, unpublished materials and the opportunity to enjoy some very original cocktails. - Mejunje: Cultural Space, internationally recognized, defender of the rights of equality and integration. This and many other corners that we will see on the way, will be part of our journey. We will make our experience something fun where we can learn and most importantly enjoy as a local. We will know how the current Santa Clara moves,the Santa Clara and we will see what makes this small but charming city so special. I hope that together we can walk the streets of my city !! Note: Please if by any chance you wish to cancel your attendance at the Tour, try to send a message to let me know. Thank you so much!!!!

No se presentó, cancelando media hora antes del servicio. Muy poco profesional

Response from Gina
Buenas tardes, ante todo disculparme nuevamente por no poder asistir al tour por estar enferma. Le avisé un hora antes (8:30 AM) pues como le referí en el mensaje desperté así (no había forma que le pudiera avisar desde la noche anterior) y no creo que con fiebre le hubiera podido realizar . Incluso le sugerí que si necesitaba alguna recomendación le podía ayudar. No me fui con otro grupo como refirió en la evaluación privada, de hecho no he salido de la casa en todo el día. De igual forma un vez más siento que si experiencia no haya estado a la altura que esperaba y le deseo un feliz viaje.
