Cuba tours
The most memorable part of the holiday was meeting the people of Cuba. As we speak Spanish we had wonderful conversations with children, owners of the casas and people on the street. (more)Ellen Gormley
Hugely enjoyable and eye-opening. Highly recommended, though you can expect plenty of surprises. (more)Dom Loehnis
We particularly liked hiking in the Sierra Escambray to Codina. The guide was exceptional, and was constantly going off into he "jungle" to bring us tropical fruits - Guava, bananas and types of citrus fruit. Swimming in the "bat cave" was very special. (more)Michael Jacoby

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 £275 - £555 excluding flights

From £2239 - £3149 including UK flights
Cuba cultural tours
The trip was excellent! We really enjoyed staying in peoples homes instead of hotels. (more)Jeff Hiller
Every place has its own charm and character but as I love tropical landscapes Baracoa is probably the most memorable place. (more)Radia Bouziani
The homestay accommodations, which allowed us to meet and interact with local Cubans in personal and meaningful ways, was one of the best things about this trip for me. Cubans are so warm and friendly getting to know the people a little bit made this a very special holiday. (more)Colleen Schalm
From US $915 - US $1050 including domestic flights only
Cuba holiday, small group tours
Visiting Santa Clara and seeing the Che Guevara Mausoleum and statue was the most memorable part of the holiday...10/10. Absolutely perfect. (more)Genevieve Isherwood

Some of the most memorable parts of the holiday were BBQ suckling pig dinner 'al fresco' in Baracoa and the Cuban cabaret in Havana ('live' Cuban band and 'living legends' singing). (more)Lisa Loh
Absolute blast! Learnt so much, laughed so hard, appreciated the music and the cars....there is no other place like Cuba. (more)Yvette Chambers
From US $1165 - US $1325 including domestic flights only
Scuba diving and tour in Cuba
The most memorable parts of the holiday were... diving in the Bay of Pigs (wrecks, rays, turtles, amazing coral)... by chance being in Vinales during its local festival with street stalls, funfair, live music and dancing...It really was the holiday of a lifetime. (more)Catherine Shaw
Great time for all, with a balanced programme that was enjoyed by everyone in our family. (more)Nicolas Raynaud
Book it know! Wonderful memories, felt like you were participating in a movie from the fifties. bB living / eating in private houses our holiday benefited local people. (more)Wenche Drevland
From €1040 - €1720 excluding flights
Cuba cultural holiday
I loved all of it. Outstanding. (more)Mary Walters
Although the architecture and scenery were spectacular, the people were clearly my favorite part of the trip. The friendly, warmth they exude is intoxicating, and refreshing. (more)Scott Belding
The tour guide was very personable and tried hard to make us comfortable. and shared a lot of good information with us about what it is like to live in Cuba. (more)Kristina Joie
From US $650 excluding flights
Cuba small group holidays
It was all fantastic - it's impossible to identify one particular aspect as Cuba is such a diverse and fascinating country, from the landscape to the architecture and the people. It was an excellent holiday. Go to Cuba as soon as you can - it's marvellous! (more)Katherine Fisher
Being let loose in Havana was the most memorable part of the holiday (more)Ian Macbeth
Excellent from start to finish. (more)Ian Roderick
From £1999 - £2799 including UK 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

From £999 - £1249 excluding flights
Cuba holiday, small group
10 out of 10 (more)Yvonne Manuel
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
From £1195 - £1415 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
From £2095 excluding flights
Western Cuba small group tour
Excellent and very memorable! (more)Mark Pitt
It was extremely varied always interesting. The tour guide was exemplary... The selected itinerary gave a varied look at central and west Cuba. I found it well paced and fascinating. Well done to the tour operator. (more)Anthony Haugh
From £1672 - £1816 excluding flights
Camino de Cuba walking holiday
Memorable parts? Havana - most exciting. Trekking through brown/red mud - most memorable. Walking was generally in woods without much in the way of views and always on narrow slipperey paths - no "dirt vehicle width roads" as the first item listed in the trip notes. Unfortunate that the "Two nights guaranteed in a hotel in Old Havana..." didn't materialise. Tips? Read the trip notes carefully and research the country with material outside tour operator's description. Take extra stuff... (more)Sean Kavanagh
From £2059 - £2849 including UK flights
Cuba walking holiday
Memorable parts? Watching an amazing couple dancing to a buena vista band in the casa de cultura in Vinales. They were unbelievable and the music was so good. It was much better staying in casa particulares rather than the government hotels which were out of town. Also visiting a little village school in Soroa and seeing how the teachers and children manage with so little resources. Tips? Be flexible and make allowances for being in Cuba - Cuba e Cuba - and things don't work like... (more)Jayne Harnett
From £1050 excluding flights
Christmas & New Years Cuba tour
Cuba is an amazing country, unlike anywhere on earth. Trinidad was a great place to visit, with everything you'd need - museums, restaurants - even a disco in a cave... (more)Bryan Manley-Green

From US $975 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 £1708 - £2018 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 £649 - £729 excluding flights
Discover Cuba tailor made holidays
Memorable parts? We really enjoyed Havana - what an incredible city. Perfect for exploring on foot and packed with friendly interesting people. Tips? Try and book the trip yourself rather than using a tour operator. The company we went through booked through a local agent who outsourced everything to another local agent so it was one mess up after the next with no real way to get in touch with anyone who could help. Three lots of travel agents all taking their commission also... (more)Sally Foote
From £1772 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 £1865 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 - £2755 excluding flights
