    4.0 - Good

    Cuba on a Shoestring - The tour was generally great and was all I expected and more. A few points I would suggest to improve things, longer stop in Cienfuegos as 30 mins is not enough. On the way to this town the guide gave a really good account of the bay of pigs invasion and outcome, the museum was then a waste of time and better to spend in a really pretty town. Lunch stops in more village/small town places, we seemed to use main road service areas and waited for 30 mins for a sandwich and these were expensive 4-5cuc. The guide was ok and gave lots of info, she could have been a little more friendly as I felt she was just doing her job and didn't add any personality/personal points to the tour. Great mix of people and the Casa's used were very well equipped and great to have breakfast included. I would recommend the tour to first time visitors.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • What time should we arrive on Day 1?

      Day 1 of this tour is an arrivals day, so you can arrive at any time. An important welcome meeting will be held at 6 pm, where you can get to know your group and guide, and review the details of the tour. We recommend attending the welcome meeting, and if only late flights are available then travellers may want to think about arriving a day early. There will be no travelling until day 2 of the tour, however, so late arrivals won't miss any sights!

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course we can! If you wish to arrange additional accommodation then please contact our customer support team once you have a confirmed booking. Please note that if Pre-tour accommodation is booked through us then your arrival transfer is still valid.

    • Are airport transfers included?

      Arrival transfers are included on the arrival day of this tour, and if travellers have booked pre-accommodation through Intrepid then the transfer will still be valid. Please make us aware of your flight details at least 5 days prior to departure. Departure transfers are not included, however, these can be booked for an additional fee.

      Booking was really easy! The options were displayed clearly and I was able to filter. I especially liked that they recommended a travel insurer because I've never had to get travel insurance. No hassle experience and now I'm ready for my tour!
