    The tour was a lot better than we expected. We had heard negative things about the quality of food to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by the high standard of food available. Also, the western style accommodation with included ensuite was great. We weren't expecting that.

    This tour was such an amazing overview of the diversity of Cuba. All of the accomodation we stayed in was wonderful, spending time with locals and brushing up on my Spanish! There are some good optional activities available, but we also planned our own- so it’s worth doing some extra research about what is available in each area to maximise your time. Overall would highly recommend the Cuban Adventures 15 day tour!

    To be fair Cuba is a nice country, unfortunately we got not such a nice guide ( Rioger - Andy) and our holiday wasnt a pleasure at all. In the beginning he looked like a nice guy, with very good English, unfortunately already after couple days, he was starting to get rude - once asked how was his day, he answered - Its not your business. On fourth day in the evening he invited all group for a drink, unfortunately only me and my partner came, so while we were having our drink, guide was completely ignoring us, just browsing on his phone. After that he was getting even worst, not saying good morning to us, few days later he even threatened one guy from our group saying that i have lots of friends (just be cause he misunderstood guy;s joke) then he grabbed his phone and went outside for twenty minutes or so. Everybody didn't understand what happened. Andy was very changing all the time, 1 minute he was happy another minute angry, third minute sad. 2 days before leaving we had a waterfall tour and after it guide was highfiving everybody and my partner didnt high five him, just because guide was rude all day, so guide told my partner to be more polite and then he broke a stick int a tree - really dont thing that stable person would do anything like that. I would say that Cuba is a nice country but unfortunately due to our guide we couldnt enjoy it at all worrying all the time if he wont do anything stupid...

    Hi! I just returned from my 15 Day Original Tour of Cuba. I was thrilled with the experience. Our guide (Rioger) "Andy" was knowledgable, caring, positive, and fun! A real professional! He was always patient with all my questions as an American trying to discover a more balanced truth about this wonderful, proud and vibrant island nation. The folks I traveled with were amazing and we had a nice vibe together. I appreciated the flexibility and variety of the Tour activities, where you could go with the group or do your own thing. What a great experience! Many thanks and blessings! (from Maureen/ Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA)

    My friends and I have done several tours and transfers with Cuban adventures and I have found them to be consistently reliable, providing good service and good value for money. The 15 day original Cuba tour was my most memorable tour with the company. Even if just passing through, it is worth doing the Habana Viejo tour. I have also arranged transfers only through the company to make our visits hassle free, and plan to continue doing so.

    I had a great trip on my Cuban Adventures tour. It was the 15 day original tour which flew my small group from Havana to Baracoa, at the eastern end of the island, then we travelled gradually back to Havana. The guide (Camilo) was excellent - very knowledgeable and passionate about his country. Every town was different but everywhere there was music every night. The families we stayed with were very hospitable and eager to make us feel comfortable. Highly recommended.

    I enjoyed the tour very much and having a Cuban tour guide made the tour more authentic. We covered a lot of Cuba which enabled me to see the diversity of the country. I would recommend this tour to my friends and family and thank you Cuban Adventures for providing an affordable and very enjoyable 15 days of the real Cuba.

    Cuban Adventures had the perfect tour for me, a U.S. teacher of Spanish (and French). Many afternoons, I had the option of visiting museums and cultural sites on my own, which I usually prefer to do, since I could interview people personally, in addition to touring the major monuments together. Living in the casas particulares was particularly enjoyable, since that gave me a chance to interact with Cubans on a domestic, personal level. I visited many cities but missed the western part of the country, so I'll have to go back. I would WHOLE-HEARTILY recommend Cuban Adventures and Big Planet Adventures, which is out of Australia. I was the only US citizen in this English-speaking group and it was fun to meet folks from Australia, England and Canada. Our guide, Adrian, answered all our questions without hesitation. It was hot and humid in the summer, but I have returned with hands-on knowledge to bolster my lesson plans! Thanks for a great trip.

    The trip was more that we expected! It had the right balance between group activities and free time. It was fantastic all the extra activities our tour guide put into the trip and his local knowledge and contacts made the trip unbelievable enjoyable. Seeing so many facets of life in Cuba, meeting so many lovely people, we love to go back as soon as possible.

      The website is so easy to use, and with a large number of tours to choose from and great 24/7 backup via phone and online chat, I wouldn't book my trips anywhere else. I also love earning credits towards future tours with each booking. Highly recommended.
