    Hi Min, Thank you very much for your review. We are glad you had a safe return back home. We apologise if the person who welcomed you at that casa (an employee, not the owner) didn't explain himself better. You arrived before 2pm, which is the minimum check-in time in all types of accommodation, therefore, they placed you in an empty room so you did not need to stay outside waiting for your rooms to be ready. The clients that were occupying your rooms did not offer to change rooms, they agreed to leave earlier as they were feeling uncomfortable with the situation. Maybe you do not recall well, as it was on your second day stay, that you requested rooms with balconies and that Claudia mentioned she was going to do her best to get them for you, which she actually did, which is why you had rooms with balconies for your last night in Havana, where there is no such thing as a quiet balcony ;) Vamos Cuba complied with everything that was booked and paid for and also with your many further requests while in Cuba, however you have reviewed us negatively?...what a pity. Either way we appreciate the time you have dedicated to review us. Please, be safe in these difficult times. Warmest regards from Cuba, Vamos Cuba Team

  • Solo Salsa Holiday in Cuba- Departure anytime, Private for one person reviewer 3
    Do you want learn Salsa with nice and patient Teachers? :) Never been to Cuba and want to change it? Thats the right tour for you :)
    VamosCuba commented on this review
    Thank you Jakub for the review and I hope you are now able to dance Salsa :) I would like to mention that the package included from Meals only breakfast and choices in Cuba are limited. Maybe that's why we only got 2 * If there was any other problem please do let us know so we can improve it for next time and to deserve more stars. Thank you Veronika

    Hi David: Thank you very much for your review, it is much appreciated. We have worked with Damian for many years and have never received a complaint of him, actually, all we get is praise of both his work and his English, but we understand that sometimes things can go a little wrong and we apologize for that. Regarding the accommodation, as we understood in your message, all was good, but you gave us only 3 stars. Except for the first casa which was cancelled last minute by the host, but we worked it out at the moment and you confirmed us you liked the new option. Also the breakfast issue was solved by our guide Endimo. The car was in perfect conditions and yet we only got 3 stars. As for Meals in all destinations we only provided breakfasts, which are very good, but we cannot respond for the general cooking of the country. Cuba is a complex destination as you could see, but we are experts and managed to solve everything asap, we called you in every destination to check up on you, and we provided all info requested.Anyway, we appreciate your time for providing an evaluation. Kindest regards, Claudia Vamos Cuba Ltd

    The tour and guide were very good, yet overpriced with $900,- prepaid and next 500,- euros in cash which was not clearly explained on website.

    Hi Luis, Thank you for your time to give the review for our tour. I am sorry you felt it was too expensive for 2 people for 8 nights/9 days. We never hide this price and it was stated clearly on the Tour Radar website. I will make see if its possible to make it even more clear. I also I would like to point out that for this price you have private transport for 4 people, accommodation with breakfast, guide and tour in Havana and more. We believe we provide good value tour for the money.

About VamosCuba

 

Vamos Cuba believes that holidays can be so much more than simply sightseeing. We have made local connections and arrangements so that you can enjoy a unique Cuban holiday.
 
Vamos Cuba offers travellers to Havana an authentic taste of local life while brushing up their creative skills, with accommodation provided at personally inspected family homes (Casas Particulares). 
 
You will also have your very own Cuban amigo. (This is our name for the great people who work with us). One of our ‘Amigos’ can meet you at the airport, make sure that you know where your classes are and make you feel at home in Havana.
 
Vamos Cuba was founded by Veronika Tirpakova. Originally from the Czech Republic. Veronika has always had a passion for Latino culture and has travelled extensively throughout Central America. From 2005, she worked in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, for a large multi national company. During this time she learned Spanish and participated in a number of Latin culture festivals. In 2010 Veronika met the world-renowned Danza Contemporanea de Cuba when the company performed at the Theatre Royal in Newcastle. After striking up close friendships with the dancers, she visited them several times in Havana. It was here, in the musical heart of the country, that the idea for Vamos Cuba was born. Veronika decided that everyone should have the chance to visit and experience the real Cuba as she did, their amazing culture, meet and even live with its wonderful, vibrant people.
 
In 2011 Veronika left the corporate world and set up Vamos Cuba.  She now divides her time between Havana and the UK. Vamos Cuba gives travellers the opportunity to immerse themselves in this vibrant culture, get a taste of the real Cuba and be inspired by the Cuban way of life.  Clients can stay with local people in friendly, comfortable home stays.  They will also benefit from tuition provided by professionals of respected institutions such as Havana’s University and the National Schools of Arts.
