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.

I did the 8 day tour, our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Cuba as she was from there. It was a good tour some long day, I ended up staying a few more day after the tour to relax and see a bit more of Havana, but if you do go to Cuba this is the company you should book with enjoyed it.

The 3 of us just got back from the 8 day American Tour, This Cuban Life. Yanna was our tour guide and Rolando was our coach driver. They were both extremely knowledgeable and helpful to the 9 of us in the tour! This tour brings you up close and personal with Cubans. This is exactly how I wanted us to experience learning about my husband's country. We went on the "Support for Cuban People" license that the USA allows us to travel to Cuba legally under. Cuban Adventures takes care of obtaining the license. We started in Havana and stayed in a casa right on the Malecon (the ocean and castle across the street from us). We had a tour of Old Havana and the artistic neighborhood of Fusterlandia. The next day we had lunch in Las Terrazas and stayed 2 nights in Vinales. We met a tobacco farmer, had Salsa and cooking lessons. We then went to Cienfuegos via Bay of Pigs. Cienfuegos is a beautiful town on the ocean! Our next stop was Trinidad. We stopped in Santa Clara to see Che Guevara's burial site. You will love Trinidad's cobblestone streets! We stopped at the Ignaza Sugar Mill and climbed the tower. We ended back in Havana and stayed in Old Havana. You will love staying in the casas. Either the owners or employees will serve breakfast. You will have eggs, juice, coffee, toast, and maybe cheese /meat. It was so much fun to get to meet these great people! They are anxious to help make your stay comfortable. Each casa is air conditioned, has a nice shower, soap and usually a hair dryer. Electric is fine as long as you don't have 3 prongs. I was pleasantly surprise dat how well maintained they are. They are not 5 star hotels, but you don't need that. You will be safe and they are clean! I think it was much better than staying at a hotel when you can get up close and personal with the native people. You will need to carry all cash that you need with you. Don't be concerned. We were there 12 days and didn't have an issue at all. We were out at night as well. I would take the Santeria Religion tour that Havana Urban Adventures has. It was very educational and interesting to learn about a different religion that only Cuba has. Don't hesitate to book this tour. They are a fantastic company and take care of you the minute you book your tour. Lalani and Sarah are located in Los Angeles for any of your questions. This is an Australian company, but you pay with US dollars! We feel so blessed to have found Cuban Adventures, Yanna and Rolando!

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!

What a great company. They took care of everything from start to finish. I didn't have to worry about hauling my luggage around from city to city. I didn't have to worry about where to catch a bus, rent a car, or negotiate a taxi. I didn't have to worry about accommodations. I didn't have to worry about where I was going to eat any meals. Our guide, Yunior, (Junior) was excellent. He know his history of Cuba better than most books would. I highly recommend Cuban Adventures and Yunior.
