Our Cuba Tours

Our award winning Cuba tour packages aim to give our travellers a taste of the 'real' Cuba. Apart from visiting some of Cuba's highlights, we concentrate on contact with the Cuban people and the Cuban culture. Here are some of the main features of our Cuba tours:

  • Local Tour Guide - Each tour is accompanied by one of our local Cuban tour guides.
  • Accommodation is almost always in guesthouses. These are small privately run businesses in Cuba that are typically run by local families.
  • Small groups - a maximum of 12 to 16 travellers on our regular departures, depending on the tour package.
  • Flexible - we leave plenty of time on our Cuba tours for participants to do their own exploring in Cuba. Our tour guides also offer the service of arranging optional activities, excursions, and day trips for the group or for individuals in the group, at each destination in Cuba.
  • Value for Money - our tours represent some of the best value for money on the market for Cuba tour packages. This is not because we cut corners (we are not cheap), but rather because we benefit from being a small and efficiently run business with low advertising and marketing costs, and because we the operator our own tours in Cuba directly - so there are no 'middlemen' involved.
