    "I wish I could give Pototo higher than a 10. He's a gem. Very warm, knowledgeable, and professional. He and his wife Pilar sponsored a happy hour at their home which was a highlight of our time in Havana. "

    "What a trip! I loved the insider-access, especially the visit to our guide's home! I also loved the farm and lunch in the Vinales Valley. Our guide was great, professional, informative, and had a good sense of humor."

    "I just want to say that our tour was by far the best trip we have ever been on. The guide was wonderful, and so was the driver. We felt like we spent a week with family members. I cant think of enough superlatives to express our appreciation for being teamed up with these two. Thank you."

    "I had an amazing trip. I loved everybody. I consider myself very lucky to have been in such a small group and was able to make such strong ties because of it. I got to take back a sport with me for the rest of my life. How many vacations can you say that about? You have something very special I hope that your success only gets bigger from here."

    "The trip was brilliant, awesome, inspirational, reviving, and fun. It was absolutely the best skiing trip Ive ever done. When I signed up I was thinking that even if half of what they claim is true, itll be amazing. I was a bit scared of expecting too much and getting disappointed. But, in reality, it was better than anything I had hoped for. I even caught myself dreaming I was practicing a 180 and a 360."

    "Trip of a lifetime is the only way to describe Access Trips' Mexico mountain bike and surfing trip. The biking is challenging and takes you through the real Mexico. You will ride past cowboys on horseback herding cattle and stop in a number of tiny villages. There, you are able to try homemade ice cream or a hot treat out of an earthen oven. If you are really lucky, you may sample some local moonshine called "ricia" that is as smooth as any tequila.The terrain is spectacular. The accommodations in Moscato are in an adobe and plank and timber hacienda; truly beautiful. Just as you are getting saddle sore, it is off to Sayulita, where you can soak up the sun, sand, surf, and drink cervezas. The surfing is at a picture postcard beach with surfing for every level and Sayulita has more varieties of fish tacos than you could try in two weeks. This was a great trip; best I've ever taken and I am a repeat customer."
