    This was my first tour after years of independent travel. It was ok and we saw pretty much everything as described.

    Great value for money! Got to see the whole country and felt like I've really seen Cuba. Maggie and Mario were a dream team as guide & driver and you should request to be on their tours! Much appreciate this company and their organization of the tour!

    cuban adventures is an australian company running tours in cuba. i mention this because i have a feeling they do not have complete insight of how some of these tours are run. we did take the 8 day original tour which we enjoyed and was well thought out and professional. the home stays were variable from very nice to pretty awful. There is no uniformity and no way to know what to expect. In each town our group of 15 was split into about 3-5 different. homestays close to one another. We added the 4 days eastern cuba tour to the end of our 8 day trip. This trip is to be avoided at all costs. It was d complete disaster and a huge rip-off. For the money they charged there were no actual tours but just alrrangements for your travel and overnights stays. Even though this is called a 4 day tour they booked our last flight from santiago back to havana at 830 am in the morning .At best this was 3 days. Even with taking an early bus from baracoa we had less than 18 hours in santiago. (originally we were scheduled toarrive santiago in the evening and leave next morning early but i asked them to change to an earlier bus. they do not provide thedetails of your itinerary until after your trip has been paid for and then you are given this schedule very close to your departure for your trip. Cuban adventures also booked our initial flight from havana to baracoa for 530 am but did not inform us that the flight was changed (not a last minute delay) to 945 am that morning. we arrived at the airpoprt at 3am for a 945am flight. It was their responsibility to confirm this flight and let us of know of the time change. We were also given a tour guide who was completely unnecessary. and incompetant. Book your flights and transfers yourself. the cab rides are cheap and. the bus they provide is the viazul tourist bus which you can reserve yourself. the home stays were underwhelming and the owner in baracoa was only trying to take advantage of us by asking us to pay for an excursion we clearly did not take. go to infotur in each town to arrange any excursions you would like. Cuban adventure has no business offering this tour which is not a tour and charging a ridiculous amount for a fradulent trip.

    We had a great experience visiting Cuba. Our guide Osvaldo, was wonderful. His English was good and his recommendations at restaurants and so forth were right on. He was very attentive to us, being the oldest in our group. Our group of 13 were all good people to be with. The bus was very comfortable with air conditioning. The hosts at our accommodations were helpful, especially in Havana and Cienfuegos. It's a beautiful country. Our Original 8 day Tour was fine, but would like to have spent more time in Havana. The only downside of this trip, being US citizens, was our credit cards didn't work and the money exchange at the banks was not good. This will probably change in the near future. The dollars had to be in perfect condition and they wouldn't accept the new $100 bill with the blue stripe down the middle. Plus it took sometimes over an hour to exchange. At a hotel, it took only a few minutes. The friendliness of the people, the old cars and Osvaldo made our trip! If you expect 5 star accommodations, maybe this trip isn't for you - but we loved our Cuban Adventure!

    Great trip. Great tour package. Adrian was a great tour guide and saved me some financial hassles. Highly recommend Cuban Adventures to anyone wanting an experience to meet Cubans but have a safety net of an group adviser. I liked the balance of time as a group and time to do my own thing.

    We had an excellent experience all the way around. Cuban Adventures did a very good job preparing us in advance as to what was needed for U.S. travel in Cuba, and what to expect once we were on the island. Our tour guide Adrian was all that we could have hoped for and more. His suggestions for optional excursions were spot-on, and his willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty was appreciated by everyone in the group. Our driver was amazing, too, and the bus was very comfortable. I highly recommend the 8-Day Original Tour with Cuban Adventures!

    Great tour. Our guide, Adrian, was the best. He was attentive to each of our individual needs and unique quirks. The tour was well organized and gave individuals opportunities to explore as they preferred or follow Adrian's suggestions. The guesthouses were all very clean and adequate, giving us a more first hand experience of life in Cuba. I highly recommend visiting as soon as possible before the mega tourism business of the US sanitizes the Cuban travel experiences.

    We thought the tour was well organized from start to finish and saved a lot of the hassle that can be experienced in finding transport, restaurants, hotels etc when you don't have much time. That said we had hoped to learn more about Cuba and how it is transforming: a topic studiously avoided by the tour guide. The guide was however very pleasant and very kind. I think part of the problem was his English was not up to giving very much of an explanation on Cuban history or society. Transport was comfortable and air conditioned. Some of the stopovers were a bit of a misnoma e.g. the "beach" stop!. But all in all an interesting and varied trip through part of Cuba.
