Joe was bitten by the travel bug during undergraduate studies at the University of Florida, when he spent nearly a year living and studying in Brazil and traveling to Argentina and Paraguay.

Highly recommend Joe and his entire team at Almaz for any travel destinations. Joe created an exciting and culturally significant itinerary for my family’s trip to Colombia in early-April 2022. The accommodations were excellent. The activities kept my teenage daughters interested and engaged. The English-speaking guides were a highlight of our trip. The many connections in-country (flights, over-land transport, etc) were seamlessly integrated into our itinerary. Thank you Joe!

"From the very start Joe was communicative and had loads of information. Every step of the way was easy from booking flights to deciding where to go. They were fast on the email response and quick to answer questions. I could not have had a better experience with them. The guides, hotels, drivers were top notch."

Two trips to Cuba with Almaz and I'm ready to go again. The first time I went by myself. That's me in the pink convertible. My amazing guide, Viviana, took such good care of me and we had FUN. The next year I took my son and grandson. It was glorious watching them discover the wonders of Cuba. The classic American cars. The tobacco fields. The food. Next time it will be a Cuban adventure with my BFFs. Bring on the mojitos!

What an incredible whirlwind of an experience in Havana, Cuba! Wonderful people, beautiful architecture, rich culture, complex history, and fantastic food – for consumption...and thought. Almaz Journeys used their connections to set up fascinating exchanges based on our interests, and really took care of every last detail, so we could relax and enjoy our trip to the fullest. Looking forward to more adventures like this!

We enjoyed the fact that at every turn in Cuba, we learned something and that the learning experience led to more questions. Extremely thought provoking trip. Top to bottom - everything fell into place without any hitches. Could not have asked for anything better for our trip!
