It is the sum of the whole parts rather than any single aspect that makes this trip special. Witnessing how the island and its people have responded to Castro and the earlier colonial history is a real eye opener, and makes for a truly fascinating and rewarding experience.

A fantastic introduction to this lovely country. We were well treated by friendly and welcoming people who wanted us to get the most from our visit.Is it necessary to add that this is one of the safest-feeling countries we have ever visited? You spend more time on the bus than many Exodus trips but the trip notes reflect that. We didn't have a problem with that.

Apart from the lovely weather, Cuba was not what I expected but turned out to be a unique and thoroughly fascinating adventure. The scenery in the east and south of the island, and at Vinales, is exceptional and the sheer variety of locations and activities on the tour means we were never bored. Open your mind, go with the flow and reach your own conclusions about the political system, the people, the music and all things Cuban.

Fantastic Cuba! Exodus excelled in it's tour itinery, accurate trip notes and an excellent local guide. Cuba is fascinating. Hotels were better than expected, the pace was busy but managable and the tour guide made it relaxed. Just a wonderful holiday and so pleased we travelled with Exodus, our first experience, not the last. Thank you. Such a balanced range of activities as the pace is busy, as is travelling. Cuba is in my top 5 countries and highly recommended.

Cuba was high on my list of places to visit before it changes too much, and I’m glad I went when I did. Those who say they have been to Cuba and sat on a white sandy beach in a 5-star resort have not seen the real country. There is so much more to it – amazing architecture, beautiful scenery, interesting history, as well as the lovely beaches. It’s refreshing to visit somewhere without a Starbucks or McDonald’s on any corner, although the local cuisine is limited in its variety. Learning about the local politics, education system, healthcare and economic situation was fascinating, thanks to our very knowledgeable Exodus guide. The Isla Grande trip really does take you around the whole country. This does mean lots of coach travel, but it was comfortable, air conditioned and allowed for a quick snooze after the dancing and mojitos of the night before. The hotels varied but on the whole were of good quality. There is a real variety of activities included – boating down rivers, exploring in the jungle, whizzing around cities on bike taxis and dancing in the music halls. It was an action-packed trip, with a great group of people, and yet another memorable holiday with Exodus.
