Loved the trip!

(Translated by Google) I loved this trip, it was very enriching the experience of staying in the homes of Cubans, very receptive and happy to receive our group. The proximity generated by the staff of Cuban Adventures provided a very nice and fun climate, I left there with a strong desire to return to know the other part of the island !!! (Original) Amei essa viagem, foi muito enriquecedora a experiência de ficar hospedada nas casas dos cubanos, muito receptivos e alegres por receber nosso grupo. A proximidade gerada pelo pessoal do Cuban Adventures proporcionou um clima muito gostoso e divertido, saí de lá com um forte desejo de voltar para conhecer a outra parte da ilha!!!

Stop. And listen. I'm not American. But it doesn't matter if you are or not. Cuban Adventures caters to EVERYONE. It doesn't matter who you are or where you come from, it doesn't matter what age you are, what nationality you come from, you will find your best Cuban experience right here. It's nice to be tough, to think you can do it alone; it's nice to be new, with no understanding of the world; It's nice to be you, as long as your willing to learn and be open to the experience; Everyone I had met on my tour or bumped into on another tour is like minded about the one reason we all came here. Cuba. Cuban Adventures looked after everything, housing, travel, excursions, talk, play and knowledge. They give you the best of both worlds - Independence and guided travel. You choose your own adventure, how much you participate is up to you. Personally I have travelled the world but was unsure about Cuba with all the different information, rumours and political difficulties happening in our time, but Cuban Adventures is there to answer any questions or any reservations you might have before, on and even after you leave. The tour guides are local and second to NONE. I highly recommend this company and cannot speak more highly of what they have to offer. If you have ever wanted to go to Cuba. This is your chance, go, and have a great time. Just like I did. No joke of a lie. Do it, you'll thank them (and me) later. :)

Exceptional Leader

I spent 3 weeks in Cuba with Cuban Adventure Tours in 2011. The tour was extensive, our tour leader Natalia was exceptional, her knowledge, passion & ability to go the 'extra mile' was outstanding. I felt safe, informed & loved every moment of my time in Cuba. Hopefully, one day, I will return. From Wellington, New Zealand.

Great Private Tour!

Great private tour. Guide Marcos did not push shopping, which a lot of tour companies do. Host family was very nice and even got up at 300 am to make me a full breakfast since my flight left early in the morning.
