This holiday is an in-depth look at Cuba: its principal cities, its landscapes and its fascinating history and culture. The hotels were better than I had expected, with several nights in 4-star accommodation. Quite a few meals were included and those at privately-owned restaurants were very good,. Meals are not particuularly cheap in tourist restaurants.

A very comprehensive trip covering most of the key places except Vinales. There are lots of long days in the bus as the trip covers a large part of Cuba. Roads are not fast and there are many slow vehicles, bicycles, horse drawn vehicles in the country. The people are the real highlight. Despite the difficulties they experience on a daily basis, they seem resilient and cheerful and are welcoming to tourists.

Isla de Cuba

This was a great trip, where we saw a lot of the island and got a really good feel for life in Cuba. The guide was great and gave us masses of information about the island's history and day to day living in Cuba and was not reticent to answer any questions that the group threw at him. We got to see such a lot in a relatively short space of time and loved every minute of it.

Isla grande..Cuba 2015

I think it would be very difficult to see so much of Cuba in 2 weeks by any other means. Of course, this implies a lot of travelling and living out of a suitcase which may not suit everybody. I really felt we had seen a lot of the "real" Cuba , both positive and negative. I was shocked by the living conditions in Baracoa, for example, but impressed by the way people dealt with their conditions, with beautifully turned out schoolchildren, and the pleasantness and welcome displayed by the people. Our guide was fantastic, good humoured, kind and always at hand ..by no means a 9 to 5 job. He was so enthusiastic and clearly loved his country.

This was a fabulous holiday. We really enjoyed the variety of the island and were impressed by the variety of experiences there were from the dancing and music to the historical events that have shaped modern Cuba. It was worth all the traveling that enabled us to see so much.

This trip was well organized, with some very early starts and late finishes. Most evening meals were taken after 8.00 o’clock in the evening. Accommodation varied for very good to poor. This trip mostly concentrates on the Cuba revolution.

Excellent tour around Cuba, bringing together history with every day life. The long drive times are worth every minute for the scenery, the people, the music and the rum!

Excellent trip. Great guide ( Jorge) and driver ( Orlando) So much seen....a real full immersive experience. Only thing that wasn't quite 5 stars were the long coach journeys: otherwise top marks all round.

A journey seared forever in my memory

You want to see the real Cuba before things change? Well this trip is for you. For the memories it has burned into my memory it is worth every single one of the five stars, I have given it. That is though not to say there are not challenges, but memories far outweigh them. Challenges * As the guide says there is a lot of travel. It didn't bother me, but if you don't like travel it might bother you. * Hotel standards were average at best to western standards, but this is Cuba. * Hotel food was poor. So head out to the private restaurants that are cropping up everywhere. The seafood can be great at times. * Wifi availability was better than expected, but I was still without for a week. But when I had it, it was rapid. Brilliant moments * Beautiful Baracoa, worth every mile of the journey. * Visiting a desert island off Trinidad, and just floating in the sea. * Music, music everywhere. * Walking the Sierra Maestra mountains. * Rickahaw in Camaguey. Last but not least the people. The Cubans were brilliant, you can't help but finish the trip wishing the future is kind to them and helps them prosper. So to conclude yes there will be challenges, but that is part of the fun just go you will have a brilliant time.
