Frequently Asked Questions

    • Are flights included?

      As we have travellers from all over the world, flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed. As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. We recommend that you do not book your flights until your place on the tour has been confirmed. Check out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner to book your flight - https://flights.tourradar.com

    • Do we require a visa to do this tour?

      Regarding Visa advice, we recommend contacting your local embassies for the most up to date information about visas required for different countries. As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot be an effective and accurate visa authority as this information is regularly being updated and varies for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking your local embassy or consulate’s website for the latest up to date information.

    • I am a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      On the tour the accommodation is based on a twin share basis and, if you are travelling on your own, you will be sharing a room with another traveller of the same gender. If you would prefer the privacy of your own room that is not a problem however you will need to pay a single supplement.

    • What is the group size of this tour?

      The average group size is between 6 and 7 travellers, with a maximum group size of 12.

    • Is travel insurance included in the tour cost?

      Travel insurance is not included in the tour cost, however, it is highly recommended to be adequately covered. If you require travel insurance, TourRadar has partnered up with World Nomads to provide a hassle-free experience. More information can be found on the following link (http://www.tourradar.com/travel-insurance).

    • Are any vaccines required before joining this tour?

      In regards to vacinations as every traveller has different health requirements we recommend contacting your local GP or travel doctor for the most up to date and accurate information.

    • Are tips included in the tour cost?

      Tips are not included in the tour price however tipping is entirely at your discretion. If you feel the guides you meet on the tour have done a great job in looking after you, a tip is always appreciated but not expected.

    • What is the best type of luggage to take to Cuba?

      When travelling in Cuba it is recommended to bring a backpack, duffel bag, or a small travel case with wheels. Please keep in mind that you will normally have to carry your own luggage on and off buses and along cobblestone streets whilst on the tour.

    • Can you organise additional accommodation?

      Organising additional accomodation before or after the tour is generally not a problem, however, it is on a request basis so if you would like to book additional accommodation please let our team of Travel Experts know at the time of making a booking.

    • Do you have a physical rating for this tour?

      Cuban Adventures do not have a physical rating as such for the tours.
      The reason for this is there are no included strenuous activities and there is mostly free time for which the tour guide can help you arrange activities that suit you. This way you can pick and choose activities that suit your interest and physical capacity. For most travel days the start time is very reasonable and you'll have time for a relaxing breakfast.
      There are many activities available that do require a certain fitness level, however, these are optional and there are always less strenuous options available to suit every traveller's needs.
