    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.

    • Marcia9th August 2018
      I love Tour Radar. They gave me all the support when I needed contacting the agent themselves to solve my problems while I was on the trip. The response was always quick and I also got the best deals, always cheaper than with the operator. Can't fault it really. Just booked my second trip with them this week.
