FABULOUS ADVENTURE & I WILL BE USING RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL AGAIN! (more)Stephanie Hurlburt
Exceptional in every way - nature, people, variation, history and organisation....The whole holiday was memorable! The fact that we were a small group, and that the destinations and activities were so varied, were important, but in particular the guide was first class. (more)John Bates
From US $1250 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 275 - 555 excluding flights

Hopping in a Coco taxi in Havana? Playing on stage with a band in Trinidad? Zooming down highways on a rented scooter? Haggling for tomatoes in the market in Cienfuegos? Dancing to reggaton in the Government-run CD shop with the assistants? Meeting a tree rat? Having a coffee with an 82-year old tobacco farmer in his farm? (more)Will Lockhart
Time in Havana was fantastic, the city is so vibrant and full of music on every corner. Another high point was going to the city/town of Trinidad which is amazing. (more)Katherine Smith
From 1065 excluding flights
Cuba cultural holiday
We had a great time and we feel like we saw some of the real Cuba. The food was good to very good at the Casa's and the local restaurants. The country was beautiful and fascinating as the people are dealing with massive change. (more)Kevin MacIntyre
Fantastic and very good value for money. Oscar our guide was wonderful, very knowledgeable and efficient. We packed an amazing amount into a week. (more)Pat Mobley
Best bits: Undoubtedly meeting Cuban people, and learning about Cuba from our tour guide. (more)Ann Molan
From US $680 excluding flights
Scuba diving and tour in Cuba
The most memorable part was the few days spent in Trinidad. Truly beautiful city, lots of restaurants, good nightlife, and great location for day trips to beaches or mountains. (more)Kelvin Eaton
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
From 1040 - 1720 excluding flights
Cuba cultural tours
I still can't believe I have been to Cuba and back. I would urge everybody who is thinking of going to Cuba, go and book your holiday now, you will not regret it. We had a fantastic guide and had a lovely time out there. The weather, food, people, music and art, buildings, parks, everything is beautiful. (more)Kim Davies
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
From US $890 - US $990 including domestic flights only
Small group tour to Cuba
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

From US $1150 - US $1290 including domestic flights only
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
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 - 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 1205 - 1485 excluding flights
Small group tours to Cuba
Walking through the Sierra Maestra to Fidel Castros's mountain hideout. Very evocative of the history, beautiful views. (more)Isabel Lewzey

Western Cuba small group tour
Great company, great food & drink, great music and dancing, great countryside (more)Peter Davies
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
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
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 2199 - 2849 including UK flights
Cuba small group tour
Memorable parts? Vinales Tips? Don't expect luxury but enjoy what is given you; you will find it rewarding Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? Just what I wanted (more)Richard Hotchkis
From 955 - 1085 excluding flights
Cuba cultural tour, 9 days
5 stars for a great Cuban tour guide with cool and fun fellow travellers. (more)Rita Rega
Many highlights to the trip, but three that stood out were the tour of Fusterlandia in Havana, learning about the Yoruba religion, and the profusion of art and music everywhere. (more)Scott Rubel
Great opportunity to explore several aspects of Cuba: geography, culture, history, politics, struggles, etc. (more)Joe Kelleher
From US $1600 - US $2000 excluding flights
Christmas & New Years Cuba tour

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 1661 - 2223 including UK flights
Cuba 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
Cuba small group holiday, 9 days
Memorable parts? The most memorable aspect of our holiday was the devastating effect on Cuba of 60 years of sanctions and 'socialism'. The country is about to welcome large number of tourists and it is not ready. Havana international airport is chaotic: on our last day it had run out of water so the toilets weren't flushing, run out of sterling so we had to accept euros, and possibly ran out of electricity as the air con was off. Tips? Tips. Take your own toilet paper, sink plug,... (more)Jackie Sayers
From 1549 - 2269 including UK 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 meant... (more)Sally Foote

Tailor made walking & sightseeing tours in Cuba
Mostly good. The guides were all very good, friendly and knowledgeable. The itinerary worked well. (more)Hilary Alleston
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
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
