TESTIMONIALS

“Capturing Cuba’s small-group format offers unique first-hand access to Cuban culture, geography, and life through a series of well-planned, well-paced activities that encourage frequent people-to-people interaction. Of the many foreign trips I’ve experienced, this will be one of the best remembered because it traveled beneath “the surface”, providing insight into key aspects of daily life, art, and politics. Cuba is a photogenic country and photographing it is especially rewarding. This trip offered a special bonus in that I was able to shoot with Scott on several occasions and receive his generously-provided tips on how to create better photos.” - Steve S. (Classic Cuba, April 2019)

“Capturing Cuba provided a penetrating lens into Cuban life, and a brilliantly intimate spotlight on contemporary Cuban culture and the arts. The food was beyond expectations. You and your guides were outstanding. I’ve traveled in over 40 countries and this trip ranks among my Top 5. Thank you for a very memorable trip!” - Marilyn G. (Classic Cuba, April 2019)”

“Capturing Cuba was so much more than I expected. I can’t imagine there are many tours like this one. We experienced more in 5 days than most people do in 5 weeks, and gained a true understanding of the Cuban culture. My favorite activity was the private Afro-Cuban music and dance performance. Mesmerizing. I highly recommend Capturing Cuba to anyone who wants an authentic and intimate look at Cuba. Scott truly delivered a one-of-a-kind adventure!” - Lori O. (Heart of Cuba, March 2019)

“My daughter and I recently traveled to Havana with Capturing Cuba. Friends of mine who have visited on cruise ships can’t believe the variety of experiences we had. We walked, talked, observed, and discovered. We learned of Cuba's history and politics. We ate and sipped in good restaurants. All in all we both recommend Capturing Cuba to give an in-depth presentation of Cuba today.” - Debbie G. (Heart of Cuba, March 2019)

“I recently returned from a true adventure with Capturing Cuba and Scott. I had heard pros and cons about the country so I was anxious to discover it for myself. We met fascinating people, enjoyed delicious food, and felt safe wherever we went. The Santeria priestess we visited was gracious and inspiring, and the famous photographer who invited us into his home was wonderful. I recommend this tour if you love new experiences.” - Joan O. (Heart of Cuba, March 2019)

“It has been two weeks since the end of my 2nd trip with Scott and Capturing Cuba. I am still floating in the clouds with the experiences of this trip. The people we met, the interactions we had and the photographs we were able to take will be a deep part of me for a lifetime. The activities for the group were wonderful. We visited schools, unique nightlife, interesting personalities, and wonderful sights. Events were well organized, and the opportunities to capture beautiful photographs never ending. Scott has further strengthened my conviction that Cuba and the people of Cuba are among the most photogenic places in the world.” - Jay A. (Classic Cuba, February 2019)

“I’m back from my fantastic 10 day experience in Cuba. Thanks to Scott Fishman and Capturing Cuba for allowing me to capture some of the best images I’ve ever shot. Scott’s groups are only 5 to 6 participants so it’s a very intimate experience meeting and photographing the people of Cuba.  His expertise and the guides he employs make it a rich experience.” - Ron G. (Classic Cuba, February 2019)

“Scott, we really enjoyed this trip and your guidance was excellent throughout. It is so important for your clients to understand that Cuba remains "adventure travel" - there's going to be unexpected twists and turns during the trip. Appreciation for the immersion aspect of your tour is important too as it distinguishes it from the cruise ship excursions that hardly scratch the surface. I also want you to know how much I value and appreciate your one-on-one instruction and advice on photography . . . some good lessons learned.” - Tom G. (Heart of Cuba, January 2019)

"This was an outstanding experience that I am more than happy to endorse! Scott arranged a marvelous trip and worked hard throughout the journey keeping up with changes and taking steps to make certain that things went as smooth as could be possible. It is Cuba and things do change. As a professional photographer himself, Scott has a keen eye for photogenic spots and arranged interviews with the local people and visits to numerous intriguing locations to make this a very positive and worthwhile experience." - Tim C. (Classic Cuba, Apr. 2017)


"I just want to thank you again for our fantastic Cuba trip! I've thought about it a lot since we've been back. It was such a great opportunity and I appreciate being able to have had experiences that we might not have had otherwise if not for your planning." - Debbie C. (Classic Cuba, Apr. 2017)


"I was on the March 2017 adventure. I never traveled with a nicer group of people. The atmosphere during the entire trip was of cooperation, exploration, and discovery. Because of Scott, we were invited into homes, meeting people, learning how they lived, and watching them enjoy life. The pictures that I have from the trip are some of the most beautiful I have ever taken. There were a large number of opportunities to see Cuba from many different perspectives. It was a dream like experience and I am seriously considering accompanying Scott on another trip next year." - Jay A. (Classic Cuba, Mar. 2017)


"I'm not a fan of group travel and by no means am I a photographer, so my decision to travel with Capturing Cuba was not made easily. After much research, I chose this trip for a few reasons. First and foremost, I liked the intimacy of the small group size. Second, the itinerary and special activities would provide the opportunity to see and experience more of Cuba's people and culture than any other trip. Third, I determined that Scott was extremely passionate and knowledgeable about Cuba. My experience surpassed my highest expectations. I am a frequent world-traveler and this was one of my best experiences to date. Go with Capturing Cuba! You will not regret it. It will be an adventure of a lifetime." - Rose C. (Classic Cuba, Mar. 2017)


I saw sights and met characters that would not have been possible without Scott's many trusted and established relationships. These relationships and his knowledge of Cuba truly enhanced my entire experience. I'm an aspiring photographer and learned how to capture images that tell stories about the subjects in them. I wholeheartedly recommend Scott as an excellent guide and photographer, as well as an overall Cuba connoisseur. Gracias Scott!" - Aja A. (Private Tour, Jan. 2017)


"Seeing Cuba in the way we had, the events we attended, the people I met, and the memories we created were amazing. I will look back on this trip as an incredible experience! If not for you putting this adventure together, I would not have any of this and for that I’m grateful. Thank you!" - Jeff W. (Classic Cuba, Dec. 2016)

"I've never before experienced so much of the local culture and taken so many amazing photographs on a trip. Ours was full of exciting photo shoots, private performances, and intimate meetings with Cubans ranging from farmers to the famous. Scott did an excellent job adapting to last minute schedule changes and orchestrating events to maximize our time. He and his guides taught me to be a better photographer. Cuba is a beautiful country, and I definitely felt that I experienced all that I could in the days that I was there. I highly recommend the Classic Cuba adventure." - Nathan R. (Classic Cuba, Oct. 2016)


"If you're looking for a different and more intimate type of trip to a foreign country, Capturing Cuba has what you want. The intimacy comes from the contact with the individual people you'll meet. I give Scott high marks for a terrific exploration of a fascinating country, only recently made available to Americans." - Stephen V. (Classic Cuba, Oct. 2016)
