Testimonial from a satisfied Hemingway tour participant:
“Valerie, your first-hand knowledge of Hemingway really brought the man to life with nuances beyond the popular conceptions. You really evoked Hemingway's spirit and it was easy to see how he fell in love with Cuba, its people and its nature. Not many people get to walk in Hemingway's footsteps, especially led by someone so gracious who knew him so well. He would be proud!”   ​- Michael, NYC (January 2017 Tour)
