Jmac "Our goal was to meet Cubans and experience the Cuban culture as part of a people to people tour. Cuban Adventures on the whole did an excellent job. We stayed in Cuban homes and met everyday Cubans. We went to great Cuban restaurants, saw a variety of places, went to some historical museums, had a beach picnic, and met Cuban dancers. There were chances to go to nightclubs late in the evening on..."

    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!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our 9 Day People to People trip with Cuban Adventures! Roger was a skilled English speaking guide who shared Cuban culture, history, and natural highlights in a informational and thought provoking way. He knows people everywhere and was able to help us navigate each town seamlessly as well as answer our endless questions, helping us gain a deeper understanding of Cuba. Our driver, Felix, was a positive addition to our trip, getting us to each location safely, while adding a personal touch with his stories and insight. The homestays were a bonus, allowing us an opportunity to meet Cubans and get a personal view into their lives. Cuba is an amazing country complete with lots of history and old buildings and cars, beautiful people and wonderful natural beauty! Take advantage of a company who can do all the planning for you, so you can enjoy meeting the people and seeing the sights!

    By traveling through Cuban Adventures, we were able to sit back and soak up all of the culture without worrying about where we were going to stay or what we were going to do. We thoroughly enjoyed our homestays, which gave us time to meet Cubans and converse with them about their daily life. Our guide Roger had excellent English skills and was able to answer our endless questions. Cuba has a lot of history and beautiful places to visit and if you want an easy and safe way to visit, taking this tour is the way to go.

    Our goal was to meet Cubans and experience the Cuban culture as part of a people to people tour. Cuban Adventures on the whole did an excellent job. We stayed in Cuban homes and met everyday Cubans. We went to great Cuban restaurants, saw a variety of places, went to some historical museums, had a beach picnic, and met Cuban dancers. There were chances to go to nightclubs late in the evening on our own but this conflicted with early departures the next morning. The greatest disappointment was a lack of time for Cuban music and too much time spent hiking in wooded areas--some of which had treacherous, slippery footing and no unique scenery, We would have preferred a night listening to music to seeing a canon ceremony. Our guide, Roger, was well informed, helpful and enthusiastic. The driver was also highly professional.

Questions & Answers

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

    • 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.

    • December 1, 2016

      Is there a single supplement available on this tour?

      Yes. Please take note that there will be an extra charge for a single supplement room. Please contact us to arrange this.

      Where do you get a tourist visa and how much does it cost?

      Unfortunately, we are unable to give visa advice due to the vast number of nationalities which our customers represent. Some nationalities can travel freely over borders, where others require advance permission to enter. There are also changes in requirements from time to time. We recommend checking your local embassy or consulate's website for the latest up to date information.
