Discover Cuba holiday, 15 days
Talking with local people - staying with families who were unfailingly friendly and hospitable. Learning about Cuba, its history and society - absolutely fascinating - the Cubans have so much to be proud about. Of course the music and dance were great! All in all, the best holiday ever. (more)Cherry Shelton-Mills
It was all excellent-there were lots of memorable moments. (more)Jane Fulford
Each part of the tour provided a different experience of Cuba but of course there is even more to find out about. Don't expect a typical tourist trip where everything is to hand but do give your time to wander through the streets, talk to the people, look at the amazing buildings which may not exist anywhere else in the world.

It was the best holiday we ever had. Our family and friends asked us a lot, but we couldn't explain by pictures and words what we felt during this awesome trip. We simply fell in love with the people and the landscapes. (more)Linda Kisa
We had a truly amazing time in Cuba and loved the country. Would definitely recommend a trip to Cuba. (more)Natasha Perry
We were absolutely enchanted by Habana, the stately old streets and buildings, some of them crumbling, everywhere pulsing with energy and life and music, music, music; we even found the street hustlers entertaining once we got used to them...One of the best holidays ever! (more)Kathleen Arrington
From €920 excluding flights

Casa Particular owners will certainly benefiting from our 6 weeks visit (one bedroom renting for a day is more than one month salary of a doctor). National Parks visits will help conservation. (more)judge alison

From €1040 - €1720 excluding flights
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 £2099 - £2669 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 $1295 including domestic flights only
Cuba cultural holiday
It was great! We were all very impressed with our lovely guide Barbara who was always cheerful, flexible and enthusiastic about showing us her country and Ale our careful and friendly driver. (more)Jean Colvin
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. (more)Julie Damgaard
From US $450 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 £999 - £1149 excluding flights
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
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 £1299 - £1659 including UK flights
Cuba cycling holiday
Most memorable were cycling 85 km along the coast road on the third day between the ocean and the mountains, the great music and dancing...Jazz in Camaguey, staying in the Casas. Fantastic fun and a great crowd of people. (more)Nuala Galazka
Cuba is a fantastic holiday destination and well suited to cycling. The trip was extremely well thought out and well organised. Superb! One of the best holidays I have been on. (more)Lauren Barker
The most memorable parts were the history of Cuba and the cycling. (more)Shirley Howdle
From £1795 - £1895 excluding flights
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 £1020 - £1245 excluding flights
Holidays to Cuba
A great introduction to the history and culture of Cuba... the best part was Meeting local people (farmers, doctor) during a leisurely morning spent at La Plata a village in the Sierra Maestra mountains, and the chance to talk about politics, agriculture, and history! (more)Audrey OSLER
There wasn't one highlight, the whole trip was a memorable experience (more)Lois Brassart
Walking and meeting the locals in the region of Viñales was the highlight. (more)Kwan Lee
From £1799 - £2295 including UK 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
From £2498 - £2868 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 - £2698 including UK flights
Cuban adventure holiday
Horse-back riding and galloping through the fields and valley of Vinales was the most memorbale part of the holiday (more)Felicity Hay
Cruising in the 1950's cars was absolutely amazing - this is a must in Havana!!! Also loved the horseback riding in Vinales - Che's monument - Trinidad was fun, lots of music/salsa dancing there. (more)Noula Contibas
The most interesting place on this tour was Trinidad. It had a lovely, chilled atmosphere and was a well maintained city, where the people were friendly. (more)Rebecca Clarkson
From £599 excluding flights
Cuba self drive holidays
Self driving out of Havana on the road to the South was the most memorable (more)Alastair Carmichael
The most memorable part of the holiday was bumping into a great Cuban band practising in the afternoon before their evening gig. They were joined by a large group of school children who immediately started to salsa. (more)Polly Perkins
Most memorable was Las Terrazas. Beautiful place and a fascinating experiment by the Cuban government - both in biological and social terms. Excellent hotel too. (more)Paul Chinnock
From £1190 - £2525 excluding flights
Cuba family holiday
Overall, a brilliant trip ! We enjoyed the beautiful unspoilt beach and sea at the end of our trip...The country is beautiful, the inhabitants are extremely friendly, our guide and the bus driver were both fantastic (more)Xavier Pujos
It was a great trip, despite a lot of bussing around: fascinating; frustrating; beautiful; run-down; bubbling with friendliness; yet often like a living corpse. Not a gourmet paradise but lots of great music. (more)Andrew James
For us day one was fantastic with the open top American cars coming to take us for a trip wow. The other highlight was swimming in the fresh water rivers. (more)Elizabeth Morgan
From £1824 - £2144 including UK flights
Christmas & New Years Cuba tour
Memorable parts? New Years Eve Party Tips? Expect very basic accomodation (too basic) Local benefits? I suppose it may have but with the present regime there it is difficult to see how that would work. Overall rating? 100% for Tour Guide, Coach and Driver. Everything else on a decresing scale. Leave out the Santa Clara/Remidious Festival. (more)Gerry Kennedy
From US $975 excluding flights
Cuba tailor made holiday
Memorable parts? It is a beautiful interesting country and difficult to pick out one experience as standing out from the rest. Tips? See below. Local benefits? Our accommodation, meals and transport was almost entirely provided by local people - we mainly avoided the government run establishments. Overall rating? Cuba is an amazing country and we are glad we went, but it was made unnecessarily stressful by the failings of the Havana office. The two tours we went... (more)Howard Morrison
From US $500 - US $2500 excluding flights
Tailor made walking & sightseeing tours in Cuba
Very interesting and enjoyable trip, well organised so that everything ran smoothly. The guide was very good. The best part was meeting Cuban people, who were very friendly and keen to practise their English (more)Janet Galloway
The variety of the programme - the buzz of Havana - the Cuban people that we met - the guide that accompanied us all week could not be faulted - he made every effort to make sure we maximised our time in his country. The local guides we met were very knowledgeable, warm and open. (more)Christine Giles
We had a great time in Cuba, seeing a wide range of places in Havana old-town, the Mountains and tobacco farms in the north and a few Caribbean beaches along the way. (more)John Eykelenboom
From £1695 excluding flights
