    4.5 - Excellent

    I did the 9 day people to people tour. Initially they told me that there would be people my age on the trip (47) but that was not really the case. Most of the group was 60 and above. That wasn't an issue because everyone was really nice and laid back. The tour guide, Yaima, was very friendly, informative and fun. The accommodations were comfortable over all and the people we stayed with were quite nice as well. I felt that we saw a wide variety of the country in our trip and I learned a lot about Cuba. Leave your expectations at home. Cuba is a country of contrasts. It helps a lot if you know Spanish. It will enrich your experience.

    I just returned a week and a half ago from the 9 day People to People "This Cuban Life" tour. I had some concerns when booking: Why is it so much cheaper? What will their accommodations be like? Will there be people in the group who are challenging personalities? In fact, none of my concerns materialized. Quite the contrary. The tour exceeded my expectations. Yes, there were a variety of accommodations. But, all were clean, had A/C in the bedrooms, had their own bathrooms, and I slept soundly each night. Our guide Omar was a great personality, was very informative, and truly was concerned about anyone who had issues in their trip. I have found myself reviewing their other tours and am contemplating returning to Cuba. I would highly recommend them to those people who want to get out of luxury class travel and be a more grass roots educational, yet comfortable, mode of travel.

    Excellent guide and transport. Nearly all destinations were heavily touristed. Would have liked more interaction with local entitities such as school, hospital, dance studio, daycare center, baseball/sports, etc. Food generally ok though repetitive. 500 km on one day in bus was too long.

    The trip was exactly as described. The tour guide couldn't have been more perfect: fun and informative! Each town and accomodation/casa was an adventure and an experience. I would absolutely do it again, or even better, go back for one of the longer tours!

    What a great way to end 2016! Cuba is both beautiful and confounding. I appreciated how this tour took the hassle out of figuring out a complicated and developing country. Rainer was an attentive and knowledgeable guide. He went out of his way to make certain that we had excellent guides in the local venues. He also went the extra mile to take good care of each tour member. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour of Cuba.

    I was extremely happy with the tour I took with Yolo on the US side and Cuban Adventures on the Cuban side. The guides were personable and knowledgeable and the locations we visited were interesting and enlightening. I left there with a much deeper understanding and appreciation of Cuba and its beautiful people!

    This was a great trip!!! Our guide, Roger is extremely knowledgeable, communicative and expressive in his descriptions of the culture, geography and experiences of the locale. We traveled through many different areas and saw varied conditions from city life to tobacco and organic farming. Our driver, Felix, was very accomplished in skills and very friendly. Wether you snorkel in the Bay of Pigs or have a cooking or salsa lesson, you will thoroughly enjoy the entire experience.

    We just finished a 9 day people to people tour with our awesome guide Roger and superb driver Felix. The small group size and value for the money was unbelievable. I ate my way through Cuba with the wonderful food and restaurants were taken to throughout the trip. The in home casas we stayed at were well chosen, clean and had very responsive hosts. I wanted to learn about cuban history and culture and our guide, Roger, was extremely knowledgeable. The mix of activities was a good balance- waling some times, driving other times but with stops which really made me feel like I wasn't just sitting in a van driving round the country (I hate that). The tobacco demonstration, cooking class, salsa lesson and more were really wonderful to engage with the culture and the people. I want to return to see so much more!

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • April 1, 2017

      What is the group size of this tour?

      This tour has a max group size of 12.

    • February 7, 2017

      What is the alternative to the treacherous hike someone mentioned?

      Most of our travelers do not consider the hike treacherous, many of us do the hike in flip flops, but I would recommend walking shoes that can get dirty. You may choose to opt out of it if you are concerned or don't feel physically able. You can do what ever you would like with your extra time, but it should be appropriate under people to people rules, so you should be engaging with locals.
