Cuban Adventures certainly know how to organise a good tour. We had a small group (11 people) who gelled really well - not least due to our excellent guide Natalia who looked after us day and night throughout the trip. We had a comfortable modern bus with plenty of space for all and an excellent driver making the inevitable travelling as easy as possible.
The itinerary was well-balanced and we got to see several great but contrasting locations with just enough time in each.
The Casas Particulares we stayed in were far more interesting than bland hotel rooms, and were an important part of the experience.
I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking to experience the real Cuba away from the beaches and big hotels.

This is a tour that includes Havana and eastern Cuba. We flew from Havana to Baracoa and then had our own bus to visit several other cities for a few days each. Our group was a very congenial bunch of 12 from a variety of countries, and we were all about the same age (60s and 70s), with similar interests (travel). Our tour guide was Ale and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. Very knowledgeable, fun to be with, and he took great care of us. Accommodations in casa particulaire were a highlight. People were lovely, breakfasts were all good, and rooms had private bathrooms with hot water (or at least warm), and air conditioning. We travelled between the cities in a very comfortable bus, with air conditioning, and a cooler to keep drinks or food cold. Our driver was extremely safety conscious. At each location there was a variety of activities to do, and in almost all places we did them as a group as we enjoyed each other so much. All the cities are very different from each other - some more touristy, some more artsy, and all interesting.
This is a very organized company who knows how to do things right and make their clients happy. I would highly recommend doing any tour with Cuban Adventures.

We recently returned from the 15 day tour for Americans. We had an absolutely fabulous time. Cuban Adventures made the planning process so easy and the cost of the tour was very affordable. The itinerary was very comprehensive and allowed us to see so much of Cuba that we would not have been able to see on our own. Our tour guides (Armando and Camillo) and bus driver (Luis) were wonderful and very knowledgeable and professional. Cuba exceeded my expectations in every way… it has so much natural beauty…it is a place frozen in time, a living museum of old cars…full of personality, charm, warm and friendly people, vibrant colors, rustic colonial era architecture, great weather, stunning beaches, great music, amazing food and mojitos and daiquiris, and revolutionary history. Truly fascinating. I highly recommend Cuban Adventures.

This was an excellent tour. We'd added on a few extra days in Havana at the start and finished off with 4 nights in Vinales at the end which made it perfect. Having 2 or 3 nights in most places made it more relaxed and we felt we had really seen Cuba by the end of the trip. Our guide Alejandro and driver Eddie made a great team and ensured our holiday covered a wide variety of experiences from watching a rehearsal in the ballet college at Camaguey to swimming at waterfalls.

Our Original Cuba 8-day tour with Cuban Adventures was fantastic. Our guide, Yenni, couldn't have been more attentive and made sure we had a great time throughout. She spoke perfect English and was always available tohelp us in any way she could. She also knew a lot about Cuban history, culture and art and answered all my questions patiently and in detail. People who book a trip that involves just staying at a big 'all inclusive' hotel will notsee the real Cuba and are missing out on a fabulous experience.

We did the Original 8 day tour. We had a great guide who was great at answering our questions and providing insight in to the Cuban life and culture. The accommodations were great. Each Casa Particular had AC, private bathroom and a fridge with usually water/pop/beer to purchase. Big breakfast with lots of fruit was provided each morning by the local host. I definitely recommend this trip.

We have traveled all over the world and our tour with Ivan was one of the most memorable experiences we've ever had. The exclusive musical performance with an incredible array of music: flamenco, choir, Congas de la Hoya, Salsa (incl lessons) modern dance, more Salsa, son were highlights as were visits to major historical sites, Playa Giron, National Cemetery for changing of the guard and the Jose Marti and Fidel memorials, the visits to urban farms, botanical gardens and city walk
I am a tour operator and tour guide in NYC (Levys Unique New York!) and I can tell you that Ivan was one of the most skilled and knowledgable Guides I've ever encountered. I'd hire him in NYC!

Like many people trips were postponed due to covid and my friend and I were ecstatic when we rebooked our Cuba journey with Cuban Adventures for April 2023. The 9 Day Essential Comfort level Cuba tour was incredible. Alan the Australian rep was speedy in communications, Reynaldo in Cuba kept me updated on all bookings pre departure information.
Our Guide Yanet is a very special man his in depth knowledge of his Cuban culture his wicked sense of humour and his professionalism made the tour the most amazing journey of my life. Yanet worked so hard to ensure every day went smoothly. Our tour totalled 4 people our guide and our fabulous driver Josefina our "JIMMY"
Casita stays allowed us to immerse ourselves in the people food music and vibrant culture - the rhythms of Cuba. Havana Vinales Cienfuegos Trinidad Santa Clara - destinations that the memories of the adventures and experiences will be held forever.
I highly recommend tours with Cuban Adventures the tour with this company exceeded my expectations.

A unique tour at a great price. An ideal itinerary.

Despite being in a group I felt the tour was personalized for me. This group offers a great itinerary that no other group has for this price. Claudia welcomed us warmly with her love of Cuba and flexibility. She gave us a tour was based on extensive knowledge that she communicated clear. She was enthusiastic and excited for all of us.

She was able to accommodate so many different needs while insuring a unique experience. Cuban adventures has a great itinerary with a great pace. I did not miss a thing and experienced things just so unique to this tour. The organic farm dinner in vinales at sunset is not to be missed. No other tour offers this experience to meet with the woman running the farm and enjoy a wonderful curated family style dinner was my favorite spot for dinner.

Our host homes were chosen with care. Cuba sets the standard for service. I felt very welcomed. Homes were clean, well maintained and ready to Accommodate our wandering.

I have zero regrets on choosing this group. Price, flexibility, choice of places to visit perfect for a first time visitor or returning guest. Claudia will make you feel like friend as soon as she meets you. Her sweeping knowledge feeds a curious traveler like myself.

I was afraid I would not really see enough but this tour group has taken me to places the others don’t. I made a great decision and they did not disappoint. This smaller company beat their competitors.
Will go with Cuban adventures again.

Wonderful trip. The communication was excellent before hand letting us know exactly what we needed. During the trip guide Roger was wonderful. He was flexible, incredibly knowledgeable and kept us laughing the entire time. We felt connected to the Cuban people because of how well he ran the tour
