Description of 10 day Cuba tour, small group

A beguiling and captivating destination unlike any other in the Caribbean if not the world, Cuba has a great deal to offer the visitor. With its intriguing history – from the first landing of Columbus to the present day by way of the Cuban revolution, the population’s joie de vivre, and the island’s astonishing natural beauty, you’ll soon discover for yourself why Cuba is such a highly-rated destination on our 10 day / 9 night Cuba Group Tour.

So our tour groups can get the very most out of their time on this amazing island nation, we include a variety of amenities as standard. Nine nights of accommodation takes away the stress of finding somewhere to stay for yourself in a foreign country. Our expert guides, who escort you throughout the tour schedule, speak excellent English providing a bridge between you and the locals whether or not you speak Spanish.

Our 10 day / 9 night Cuba Group Tour also includes private transportation between destinations so there is no battling the Cuban public transport system and guaranteed departures provided at least two of the maximum 15 slots on the tour are booked. We also charge a very small single supplement fee, so our single travellers can have the comforts of a private room without having to break the bank.

Highlights:
- Stay in Cuban B&B’s (air-conditioned and ensuite facilities)
- Private air-conditioned transportation between destinations
- Guided orientation walks at each of our scheduled destinations
- Swim/snorkel at the Bay of Pigs after visiting the revolution museum
- Enjoy a drink at the elegant Palacio de Valle in Cienfuegos
- Che Guevara Memorial and museum in Santa Clara
- Informal salsa lesson
- Tobacco farm and drying house
- Organic farm lunch in Vinales
- Explore Old Havana on foot
- Tour Havana in a classic convertible
- Mojito making lesson
- Visit the rum museum and cigar factory in the capital
- Roof-top group dinner

Accommodation
What’s hopefully clear from our tour schedule is that interaction with the real Cuba and Cubans is an integral part of our 10 Day / 9 Night Cuba Group Tour. As a result, we place our tour guests in Cuba’s small privately run bed and breakfasts rather than the larger, state-run hotels.
A unique form of holiday accommodation to Cuba, casa particular as they are known, are family-run enterprises that provide foreign visitors with a place to stay, and have only recently evolved out of the Cuban government’s relaxation on private businesses. Homelier than hotels, each casa is different in their set-up and size, however we always aim to book our guests in casas that have ensuite bathroom facilities and air-conditioning whenever this is possible.

Your Comfort on Tour
Although our 10 Day / 9 Night Group Tour is designed for those who want to experience the real Cuba, we still want our guests to be as comfortable as possible while on tour. For this reason we always include:
- Your airport transfer on arrival.
- Bottled water on scheduled journeys between destinations of more than 2 hours.
- Internet access cards (totalling 2 hours) so you can access the various Wifi Hotspots across the country and keep in contact with home.

Free time and optional activities
Our 10 Day Cuba Group Tour is planned in such a way to ensure you have some free time to explore Cuba at your own pace and to meet your own exact interests. This free time also allows our guests to undertake a range of optional activities to add to the experiences gained from the extensive list of scheduled activities and highlights, so that you can make the very most of your time in Cuba.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
This tour is committed to providing travellers with an authentic and unforgettable small group tour experience in Cuba allowing travellers to go inside the country in a deeper, more personal way. You will have unrivalled access to local people from all walks of life while you experience an island that has so much to offer that sometimes you won’t even know where to begin (that’s what your experienced local guide is for). Our aim is to take you inside this remarkable society in a fun, respectful and meaningful way.

As an organisation our commitment to Cuba's environment and culture is unwavering as we are very much aware of the impact travel and tourism can have on a destination. For this reason we cap the number of people on the trip, so a group is no larger than 15 people. This enables us to source more authentic accommodation options and local transportation that makes a smaller footprint on the environment. Furthermore all of our tour guides and dance instructors are not only native to Cuba, but are passionate about the country they live in as well. This is of most importance to us, because we believe in showcasing the very best of Cuba and this starts with knowledgable guides who know the country inside out, for better and for worse. Using local guides (alongside local organisations) helps us contribute to local economies and give back to the communities we work with. We encourage our guides to speak honestly of the Cuba they have grown up in and there impressions of the outside world as a comparison. It also allows us to provide local employment and engagement in the community.

Our organisation has implemented and enforces a 7 point checklist which we share with our employees and fellow travellers that acts as a set of guidelines to help protect Cuba's natural environment. We also provide a set of recommendations to our travellers as to how they can can contribute, protect and enhance Cuba's culture and environment including learning some of the local language, carrying a water bottle and always disposing of waste in a responsible manner.

We ensure that all activities and excursions we include and recommend have minimal impact on the environment and wildlife as well.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Our ties to Cuba and its people are strong. We have built a network of people across Cuba who we affectionally call our 'Cuban family'. These include tour leaders, local guides, classic car drivers, Casa Particular (homestay owners), local restauranteurs, bar tenders and dance instructors all with there own stories to tell and experiences to share. We believe that giving something back to the community is essential, because it is this community that makes our tours such a success. We work with our fellow travellers, clients, employees, and local contacts to ensure the successes of our business go directly back into the community. This is not only good for the towns and cities we visit but it also gives our travellers more enriched adventures.

Our tours are committed to using local homestay accommodation, making your Cuban experience even more unique and memorable (not to mention fun!). Known as Casa Particulares, this type of accommodation is comfortable for guests and generally has very good facilities. They provide you with a great way to experience Cuban culture and interact with Cuban nationals.

Furthermore the activities we include and recommend in our tours, are ones that most benefit and are representative of the community.

All of our staff and local contacts are treated like family, enabling us to instil a sense of ownership amongst our stakeholders and deliver ongoing support to the Cuban people and economy. We know the country and its people inside out and our endeavour is to show the Cuba we love, live in and respect.
