Any Americans Used the Canadian Group "Cuba Explorer?"

I am debating whether to use a Canadian group called "Cuba Explorer" to secure a 8 day education tour of Havana and I think a national park. They have been diligent in answering my questions, etc. I wanted to know if anyone has had experience with this operation out of Vancouver? Tried to do a google search regarding reviews but nothing valid came up.

Thanks!

We had a great trip with Cuba Explorer to Havana and the beach at Varadero. No hassle getting to Cuba. Very safe in Cuba and people very friendly. We will likely go back next year and many years to come.

I see some people are skeptical re first time posters. I haven't posted on trip advisor before because felt no need. I think people have a misguided impression of Cuba as I did. I can assure you that my trip with Cuba explorer was great and I will use them on our next trip. You cannot go wrong going to Cuba or using Cuba Explorer

My wife and I enjoyed the August 2019 Old Havana and the Sea trip that Cuba Explorer conducted. We were celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary and had a fantastic experience. The communication with Cuba Explorer in advance of the trip in regards to our questions was always timely and clear. Everything on the trip ran smoothly, and we definitely want to return to Cuba because the experience was tremendous.

There were seven other Americans in the group with us. Our tour guide, Atila, was the best part about our trip. He spoke English well, was very personable and gave us great insight into the collective mindset of the Cuban people.
