    2.0 - Rather poor

    Overpriced and refuse to acknowledge mistakes! We did the Bamba Cuba experience in February as part of our honeymoon after being told by our travel agent that we definitely needed a guided tour in Cuba because it is ‘unsafe’ and we wouldn’t know how to navigate ourselves. Our Bamba experience was honestly terrible from the minute we arrived at the airport- our driver did not show up to pick us up and there’s no phone or internet to call. They didn’t send out our itinerary so we needed to get a cab to a hotel. Called Bamba who promised someone would show up and 3 hours later no one did! Then they tell us ‘I hope you understand sometimes they don’t let cab drivers to hotels’ this was total BS we’d later discover. We stayed in a casa- the people and the tour guide were lovely- but if we’d booked it ourselves, which is soo easy, we’d of saved $1200 (we worked it out and the tour guide and casa are on Airbnb!) trust us, don’t believe people when they say you need to do Cuba in a tour! You can do it yourself much cheaper and everyone is nice and eager to help, especially recently as times are changing. Then Bamba booked us in cheap hotel in Vinales even though we were paying top dollar and that hotel was only $100 a night on hotels.com. we checked straight out and paid our own bus back to Havana. The hotel said they’d offer a refund but we had to go through Bamba since we’d book through them. Bamba customer service rudely refused. They also missed booking 2 of our transfers so you end up paying a lot of transfer costs yourself so beware. They make you pay top dollar and 2 days of the ‘tour’ were ‘free days’. After we complained about all the mistakes, they refused to acknowledge or refund anything! In the end, after I let them know how terrible it was, they only refunded $50 per person as a ‘sorry’. I’m not usually one to write a bad review but We had such a lovely experience of the country and such a terrible experience with the tour I feel I have a duty to let other people know not to book this tour to save yourself a tonne of money (mind you, we weren’t out to save and don’t usually complain about costs) and experience the country for all it has to offer. Total rip off and would never recommend Bamba.

    4.5 - Excellent

    We are very happy with the tour in Cuba with bamba experience tour.. the casa particulares were extremely good especially the one in vinales and Trinidad.. the family in vinales cooked for us the best dinner we had in Cuba.. also the teacher for salsa in Trinidad was amazing!!! We did a second one by ourselves and we really enjoy it!! The transportation was ok but unfortunately from vinales to Trinidad are a lot of hours and you loose all day like that.. we arrived in Trinidad late the evening.. the only think that I will have changed is that I will like to have one more day to Trinidad!! All the rest was perfect!!

      Your website was very simple to use. I was able to find exactly what I wanted and when I wanted my tour. The price was also a big factor in choosing your company. As I have done a Cosmos tour before, I knew it would be good value for the price.
