    We would not hesitate to recommend Cuban Adventures, the 15 Day Original Tour or our guide Karrel. We had a fantastic time, learnt loads and loved every minute. A fascinating, dynamic country with alot of changes on the horizon.

    Fun, fascinating & at times frustrating. Tour guide could have been better at communication, especially regarding booking activities in advance. We often couldn't get a space on trips as he didn't tell us the options until the last minute.

    As we had been to Cuba before we knew what to expect. We were really disappointed with our guide Andy and we did not feel we were part of a group travelling to Santiago and returning to Havana. May 2015- We have written already about our experiences - bringing us to expensive restaurants and places. We found Cubantours and met some lovely people and even with language differences would recommend these people in Baracoa and Trinidad. Our driver Jesus was more helpful than Andy and friendlier

    The 15 day original tour was great! It hits all the main places you want to go to in Cuba. Our guide, Osvaldo, was professional, knowledgeable, and always on time for our morning meetups. Even though the end of our tour got disrupted by a flight cancellation from Baracoa to Havana, Osvaldo still gave us a city tour as planned when we returned. The casa particulares that we stayed at were clean. Sometimes the whole group stayed together in one and sometimes we were separated, depending on the size of the casa. I definitely recommend this tour and this tour company.

    I have taken two Cuban Adventures tours and highly recommend the company and their tours. Guides We were impressed by the exceptional quality of the guides on both of our tours. Not only were they knowledgeable, polite and friendly, they frequently went out of their way to ensure the smooth running of the trip and to offer us unique experiences and accommodate special requests. A particularly memorable experience was an impromptu riverside barbecue in Baracoa, with live music, dancing partners and exceptional food arranged by our tour guide Ossie. We would not have been able to fill our trips with such fun, unique experiences on our own. There is something enchanting about Cuban cities but they are truly brought alive by the local guides. I enjoyed the learning of the culture, customs and unique history of each city we visited from a local themselves. Accommodation One of the things I love about Cuban Adventures is that the company truly lives by the ‘responsible tourism’ mantra. All of our accommodation was in homestays, which were often in amazing old homes with grand ceilings and loving families who doted on our every need! We were welcomed as part of each family. In one city I felt quite unwell, and my homestay host absolutely insisted on calling her nephew (a doctor) to ascertain the appropriate medicine for me, and then proceeded to give it to me without cost. All of the rooms we stayed in were spotlessly clean and with private bathrooms, air conditioning, sometimes TVs and fridges too. Breakfasts were included on every day of each tour and included an impressive spread of fresh tropical fruits, breads, eggs and fresh juice. We never went hungry! Food Homestays by far provided the best dining experience. The food was delicious and plentiful, with fresh veg, super creamy avocados, and generally rice and beans, and some form of meat or seafood. Sometimes our tour guides would suggest restaurants - which were always well placed to deal with large groups. We sometimes found that choosing our own restaurants without the recommendation of a guide resulted in a very slow experience - Cuban restaurants are not the same as Western ones. Overall experience We had so much fun on each tour. I felt that we saw much beautiful scenery and cities, learnt so much about the history of Cuba and really had an opportunity to immerse ourselves in the culture. I never felt that I was tied to the group or couldn't do what I wanted to do. We had such a great time salsa-ing our way across the country, sipping on mojitos, swimming in waterfalls, riding horses, making friends... an unforgettable experience. I would highly recommend Cuban adventures for a hassle free, authentic Cuban experience.

    I did not feel that the tour fulfilled my expectations. The Casas we stayed in the majority of the time were very basic. The tour information led me to believe that I would experience Cuban family life, but in most Casas we were treated very business like and were quite separate from the families. Some Casas were more welcoming particularly in Baracoa, which was our guide's home city. We were treated very well there including by our guide 's family. The added excursions were underwhelming and not worth the money.
