    Immersive experience in Cuba. We leave Cuba with a fantastic understanding of its history and its culture, and having stayed with friendly families in the casas. The places we stayed in were great. We didn't have a bad meal in Cuba which was surprising given other reviews of Cuba. A lot came down to the tour company and the experience of our tour guide Natalia. Her recommendations on where to eat and spend our limited time were great. I went for a quick dive in the Bay of Pigs and saw a whale shark, and managed to snap a couple of good photos. I was lucky though, so don't expect it, as there are guides who have dived there 300 times and never seen a whale shark. Would highly recommend booking the comfort tour with Cuban Adventures.

    The tour was above my expectations, the guide, Natalia was absolutely magnificent and so knowledgeable, all the home stays were perfect, and the various destinations on the tour so varied. It gave me an insight, and whet my appetite for more.

    Our family did the 9 day essential Cuba Trip with Valeri as our guide. It was an amazing trip. Valeri took amazing care of us and did so above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and well taken care of--even if we were staying on our own later. I learned so much and came home wanting to do even more reading about Cuba. Valeri is an amazing guide. Can't imagine the trip without him!

    Our family took the 9 Day Essential Cuba Comfort Class Tour. The trip was fantastic - well organized, matched the booking, and really fun. The accommodations and transportation were great. During the time on the bus Valeri talked about Cubas rich history, the local area, and what we were going to see that day. Our tour guide Valeri made the trip. He worked with everyone on the tour to make sure everybody had a great time. We were able to modify the plan each day to make sure the group got to really experience Cuba. I would definitely recommend the tour with Cuban Adventures - if you can book a tour with Valeri as the guide, you will enjoy it even more. Five stars

    One of my best trips ever!!!! Excellent guide, great value for the money, wonderful food, amazing sites, lots of history, and amazing cigars and rum. And all of it was made better by the knowledge and helpfulness of our guide Natalia. The small group means that we get a lot of personal attention, if needed, and never have to rush or wait for someone. And the transport bus was impeccable, and tee driver very good. Our group of 6 is already talking about touring with Cuban Adventures and Nadia again, on the eastern part of Cuba.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our Cuban experience. This had lot to do with Natalie which we found to be an excellent guide who went far and beyond to ensure that we all had memorable experience. Having travelled a lot on many tours with different companies we recognise a 5 star tour guide when we travel. Natalie is a treasure.

    Fantastic tour, my wife and I travelled to Cuba in September 2016 and experienced Cuba via the Essential Cuba Comfort Class (Cuba Group) tour. Great experience with a very knowledgeable guide. Natalia pulled out all stops and we experienced sides of Cuba that I couldn't believe that we had access to from salsa dancing to diving to fantastic restaurants I would recommend this tour for anyone that would like to experience traditional Cuba ask for Natalia she's like wow.

    I don't facebook so I am using my son's :). I did the Essential Cuba tour with Monika and 3 very nice couples, from various places, in March, 2015. I had a great tour and left Cuba feeling as though I had learned a lot about the country and had seen some of it's nicest areas. Monika, our guide, couldn't have been more helpful, patient and sympathetic to people's needs and wishes. It is the first time I had done a tour like this on my own and I am so glad that I did. I think there could be some better communication between the person we book with and the tour guide, regarding any modifications we made while booking the trip. Initially when I heard that several plans had changed and we wouldn't be staying in two of the places we were suppose to, I thought it was company disorganization, but I believe now that is a case of hotels overbooking. I learned to be adaptable and Cuban Tours (Monika) was good at compensating the group for the changes.
