    This was a great tour but be sure to book an extra day before or after in Havana to see everything. Street party in Vinales every Saturday night is not to be missed.

    • Andrew3rd January 2019
      It's not the first time I've used this site for 3 very good reasons. It's easier to navigate than most of the individual companies websites, it's a one stop shop (all the tours from the different companies are in one place) and to top it off its often cheaper than going direct
