Havana weekend getaway
Submitted by Gina Kingsley - Tulsa United States | July 12, 2017
The Havana Weekend Getaway was an extremely enjoyable immersion into the arts and culture of Havana. Our guide was extremely attentive and accommodating and the agency was always quick to reply beforehand with our questions in preparation of the trip. The program packed in everything iconic you want to do in Havana. The staff, drivers, hosts, etc were all charming and pleasant. I will definitely use Discover Corp again!
Outstanding immersion in Cuba
Submitted by Sean Randolph - San Francisco, CA United States | April 27, 2017
Discover Corps' Arts and Culture trip exceeded expectations. Our guide was incredible, and made the trip an experience we could never have had on our own as independent travelers (which we usually are). It was a real immersion, with so many dimensions! The agenda was structured but super flexible, where our guide did everything possible to accommodate our different interests. History , music, culture, meeting and talking with Cubans - it was all there. And a its fascinating place. We're glad we went and would recommend this trip to anyone.
Cuba : Havana weekend
Submitted by Laveeza - Los Angeles United States | March 25, 2017
Amazing trip ! Very well organized , had an experience not only as a tourist but living in the homes of Cubans and getting to speak and learn from them added to the beauty of the trip . We went a day early and went to Fusterlandia on our own and Museum of revolution , highly recommend that !
The group size , tours and meals were all great and our guide Ernesto and driver Frank were both so helpful and made our trip fantastic . The only thing I would add for Discover corps is to have everyone arrive by a certain time. On the first day we spent hours in our gracious hosts home waiting for the last travellers to arrive, so all the plans had to be adjusted for the next day and the tour for the first day was cancelled and changed for the next day. Aside from this everything else was totally well organized and amazing !

Family volunteer vacation in South Africa
Submitted by Traveling_Dad - San Diego United States | February 27, 2017
I took my daughters on this trip and they absolutely loved it. Being able to get up close to wildlife that they had only seen in zoos really helped them understand wildlife in a deep and profound way. Overall, it was really fun - Conrad and Lily were great - and the lodge is unique and beautiful. It was a great immersion into the culture and wildlife of South Africa.

Unforgettable trip to South Africa with Discover Corps
Submitted by Emily Goodridge - Florida State University | February 24, 2017
I could not recommend this trip more strongly. We went on game drives and got to see wildlife up close--animals like lions, elephants, giraffes--with our expert guide, Conrad, who knows all there is to know about the bush. animal life, and conservation. We learnt a great deal about conservation of various endangered species, and about the history of South Africa, both from Conrad and our other host, Lilly. We got to volunteer at a primate shelter, visit an animal rescue shelter, and spend a day with children in a local township, singing songs in English with them and playing other games. I came away educated on conservation, and on the history of South Africa as well as some of the challenges this beautiful and complex country faces. From dancing with excited children, to taking photos of lions less than 10 feet away, to the gorgeous scenery and the wonderfully serene lodge we stayed at, this trip was life-changing and I am already thinking about how to get back to South Africa to volunteer for a longer period of time!
