    5.0 - Excellent

    A great way to see Cuba in a small group before it gets overtouristed. Our Guide, Tony, was great and as a Cuban had such an indepth knowledge of the country, history, culture etc that a none local guide would never have had. Took us to places we would never have found on our own and gave us a true insight into what life in Cuba is really like. Cuba is beautiful. Minivan was spacious and commfortable even for the longer drives. Homestays in Trinidad and Vinales were more basic than traditionally a Peregrine hotel would be but more than counteracted by the experience of staying in a traditional cuban house and the hospitality of our hosts.

        Very knowledgeable and quick to respond.The prices were good and consistent so once we found the tour we wanted we didn't have to shop the net to see if the price was the best since this was the best price out there. We will definitely recommend TourRadar and will use them again.
