    Great way to see Cuba! I went on the 8 day Original Tour and enjoyed most of the trip. A great deal of walking and exploring. I would recommend that the tour not spend the night at Cienfuegos and go straight to Trinidad and spend two nights there. Be adventurous, explore and do the unexpected. The hosts in the homes you stay in do not speak English so I would recommend learning Spanish.

    A good tour in general. The accommodation in Havana is pretty mediocre or not very good. The host does not speak English at all and not very helpful

    I had a best time in Cuba with Andy, Jay and all group. This tour organised so well and very educational as well. There are million things great about this tour including accommodation, activities, time schedule, course of tour, comfortable transport ... etc. however I would say that I was great to have Andy as tour guide and Jay as a driver. They are awesome, friendly, gentle and looked after everyone even their free time. I never felt lost in any towns because Andy gave us the best option and stayed with team most of the time. Optional tour that Andy recommended was all great and I am so glad that I followed his recommendations all through. Andy wasn’t a just tour guide. He was a real out tour leader and became a really good friends and taught us a lot of Cuban History and Culture. I really would like to thank you to Andy, Jay and Cuban Advanture to organise this tour and I would recommend to everyone to join this tour when you come to Cuba. Thank you for great memories of Cuba. xx. Tia

    Your tour guide can make or break your trip. As a tour guide you have to be passionate about your subject, enthusiastic and engaging and have very good people skills. Unfortunately Rayner didnt show any of these characteristics which completely spoilt our Cuban tour. When he spoke I could see the rest of the group 'switch off'. . We had another tour guide, Jenny, for two hours in Havana who was AMAZING. How different our Cuban tour would have been if we had her for the entire tour!

    Trip was fine. Country and history very interesting. Lots of opportunities to do own thing without guide or support. Lovely places visited on itinerary. Guest hosts very kind. No problems.

      It is a great site for looking at different offers. I am very excited about my upcoming trip later down in the year. I have recommended TourRadar to friends and family who want to travel. It is simple to book and secure tours. The communication is fast from tour companies which are needed when considering investments such as tours.
