Discover Cuba holiday, 15 days
This holiday was great and I was still smiling weeks after I got back home. To date it has been the best holiday I have ever been on. I came home really relaxed and incredibly happy. I would challenge anyone to go to Cuba, spend sometime with the people and not be effected by their wonderful nature. (more)Shireen Alsalti

Dominica nature holiday
The whole two weeks was both memorable and exciting! The sheer beauty of Dominica with it's rainforests, mountains and rivers; the fantastic array of tropical flowers, the wonderful bird-life, and the feeling of being a traveller, not just a tourist. It felt as if we were in Paradise and somewhere completely different. (more)Jean Powell
Dominica is a real hidden treasure-if the beach rich carribean islands are not for you-and you like to be active try it-you can trek easy or -boiling lake hard- or even the full Waitakubuli trail.Tubing or canyoning or snorkeling.

Cuba cycling tour
Memorable parts? Dancing salsa outside in Granada after a lovely meal, mojitos and cycling. Tips? Take a padded cycle seat but you don’t need to be cycle-mad. Read up about Cuba as it is a fascinating country and this tour offers a good chance to find out about this country as well as to explore on a bike. Take your dancing shoes. Be ready to accept the country with all its pros and cons. Local benefits? Yes provided local employment and local restaurants and hotels used.... (more)Melanie Jefferson
From £2169 - £2669 including UK flights
Western Cuba small group tour
Memorable parts? Cuban Music, variety of venues. Tips? The daily outlay during the first eight days was under budget, on reaching the final destination in Havana it went over budget. Be prepared. Local benefits? Would agree that the use of Paladars fed money back into the community. No perceived heavy impact on the environment. Overall rating? Very highly. It was extremely varied always interesting. The tour guide, Bill Hill was exemplary, he provided excellent local... (more)Anthony Haugh
From £2268 - £2598 including UK flights
Small group tour to Cuba
Memorable parts? Too many to list, but the airport episode and the plane journey from Baracoa to Havana is up there with the most memorable and incredibly exciting! Hugging an iguana was pretty different, smoking Cuban cigars and drinking Havana Ron (and loving it) is very different to my everyday life. The scenery is spectacular, the homestays are excellent, and the availability of options for what you would like to do in particular areas is great. Tips? This is Cuba....don't expect... (more)Yvette Chambers
From US $1235 - US $1295 including domestic flights only
Trekking holiday in Cuba
Memorable parts? Certainly interesting was the venture to see Castro's headquarters in Alta Naranjo. Tips? Ask cost of tour before accepting offered tours. The city tour of Holquin, was more expensive than I would have thought. It was not clear to me when we were dropped off, that it was/ was not included in our payments. Also, I definitely think the trek should be condensed into 2 days in the park and not 3. When we were there we met a large UK group who did it in 2 days, and... (more)Christina Parsons
From £265 - £555 excluding flights
Cuba budget holiday
The whole experience was amazing. Cuba is a fantastic place to go and one which is going to change so dramatically in our lifetimes. The atmosphere across the whole island was so warm and vibrant, with live music being heard on every street corner. (more)Faye T
Wandering the cobbled streets of Havana and Trinidad. Jungle walks near Trinidad and Baracoa. Staying with friendly hosts in their own homes. (more)Helen Peake
Most memorable was swimming in a cave, with bats over head! Meeting people from completely different cultures (and dancing with them...) (more)Cheryl Cohen
From £900 - £999 excluding flights
Cuba cultural holiday
Memorable parts? Visiting Vinales Tips? Take some time out to explore the surrounding country. Nature is beautiful. Make sure you learn some Spanish before going. The families you stay with do not necessarily speak any English. Local benefits? Hard to say Overall rating? It was nice and relaxing. I do wish, though, that we would have visited Santa Clara as stated in the itinerary. I was sad to miss this site (even though I understand the Che Guevara-memorial was closed... (more)Julie Damgaard
From US $650 excluding flights
Cuba dance holiday, Rum & Rumba
Memorable parts? I have many memorable times from the trip. One of them was the surprise beach party at sunset not far from Trinidad: joined by 2 great musicians, we enjoyed mojitos, bbq and beach fire. The other one is when our guide invited us to his family house to share dinner and dancing in Camaguey. Tips? Don't hesitate, these guys are awesome! Local benefits? We stayed in casa particular for the whole trip and often ate in paladars. Overall rating? Perfect (more)M.C
From US $799 excluding flights
Small group backroads and beaches tours to Cuba
Memorable parts? Definitely climbing Cuba's highest peak, Pico Turquino. It was a stunning walk to the refugio where we stayed the night and then a tough climb up to the peak before a leg wobbling descent - stopping for some great local food on the way down - I've never been so hungry and it was delicious! We all felt a real sense of achievement afterwards. The guides were great, and the hospitality at the refugio was really fantastic. The visit to Comandancia De Plata was absolutely fascinating,... (more)Jemima Headey
From £1758 - £1999 including UK flights
Dominica ecolodge holiday
Searching for whales, being greeted by dolphins, snorkelling above seahorses leave a warm fuzzy feeling inside. I feel truly privileged to have been a part of the ecolodge and Dominican way of life, even if it was just for 2 weeks. (more)Nicola Beldham
We had a wonderful time at the eco lodge in Dominica; I can't recommend this highly enough. It's beautiful, unspoiled, and absolutely perfect for families, and is a genuine example of positive interaction with the local community and environment. (more)Lee Jenkins
The whole trip was amazing the tree house, the family dinners, the fruit, the waterfalls. (more)Rachel Donahue
From US $12 - US $70 per accommodation per night
Central Andros Island beach resort, Bahamas
This lodge felt like being 15 years old again and going to an ocean science camp. Very warm interaction among couples, families and dive staff every night over unlimited cocktails and conch fritters, fresh fish, local Bahamian dishes, fresh salads, and many desserts. Lobster, Turkey, and Beef Filets were served for our Thanksgiving Feast as well as 23 dessert choices! Only 20 beach front cabins are available and this is perfect. The REEF is pristine and abundant coral life abounds. It's a wonderful... (more)Jan Means
From US $260 - US $285 per person per night
Weddings in Tobago
Memorable parts? Getting married at the retreat, Tobago Tips? Maybe the 'steep' climb from the beach to the accommodation might be a problem for some people. But as for everything in Tobago, for every problem Tobagonians will find a solution. Prepare for mosquitoes during day and night time. Local benefits? Yes. The accommodation is build by local people, staff is local and locally owned restaurants and shops do benefit as well. Overall rating? We spend a great two... (more)Bart De Visser
From £750 per wedding ceremony
Cuba holiday, small group
The most memorable part of the holiday was the friendliness and openness of the people - in the street as well as ones we met more formally through homestays and tours. The music in every bar - some cheesy - some excellent. (more)David Jockelson
We had an excellent time and made some good friends. The leader was very good and did her best to advise, inform and enthuse us at every turn. She was honest, open and did her best to pass on her enthusiasm for her country, while being prepared to discuss its idiosyncrasies in an informative and thoughtful way. (more)Sarah Walker
Most memorable parts were being taught salsa, merengue and reggaeton by the locals, diving off the coast of Trinidad, having a barbeque on our own private beach and visiting our tour leader's farm and meeting his family and friends. (more)Suzy Gray
From £1050 - £1185 excluding flights

Small group tours to Cuba
Memorable parts? Meeting the local people - they were genuinely warm and friendly. To be honest I was suspicious of their approaches at first, expecting the usual follow up request for money etc but they just wanted to chat, practice their English ... and help me with my Spanish! Tips? As with most holidays, I took old clothes with me that I would not normally wear in UK so that I did not have to return with them. Towards the end of the holiday I gave bags of clothes to those wanting... (more)Lloyd Martin
