Overall good experience with some interesting cycling towards the end of the tour . Cuba is a big island and a lot is crammed in resulting in the tour having an attritional feel with some tedious transfers and insufficient time to explore places such as Camaguey, Bayamo, Santiago de Cuba and for those not staying extra days, particularly Havana.

I would definitely recommend this fabulous trip! Cycling through Cuba is one of the best ways to see the country and its people along the way. The trip ambitiously covers large distances over a sizeable island but the mixture of cycling and bus transfers just about works. There is a good mixture of accommodation-types from larger, swankier hotels (either modernist government hotels or beautiful colonial-style buildings) to staying in a local's home (Casas particulares).

Cycling Cuba

The best holiday ever.

You exceeded my expectations for this trip. Everything was handled smoothly and well. We had a variety of accommodations, some Obviously better than others, the the owners of the casas we stayed in were very accommodating and made up for in kindness what they may have lacked in amenities. We had a variety of tours and th MOST DELIGHTFUL tour leader whose memory for dates and details was beyond compare. He was also encouraging and supportive for those including myself who struggled on a couple of rides. (Due to my lack of cycling ability). I believe the rides were exactly what I expected...challenging for me but not beyond my capabilities.....although there were a few times I questioned that!!!! The drivers were kind and funny. When I mentioned we really liked pineapple...Alexis went and got more! The rooms varied a lot in each hotel and I noted that everyone had "the best room" at least once....I have to think that was intentional....it was the extra little touch that made this trip so truly memorable and special. I am already looking at my next Exodus cycling trip! I would highly recommend it!

The turning wheels on a Cuban odyessy

Now.............. the first thing to say is that I am NO cyclist.....well that's not totally true of course as of course I CAN ride a bike and myself and my wife have a reasonable level of fitness, however its not my recreational pastime as was some on our trip.......BUT.....What a holiday. If you are any doubt about your ability to do this, then so long as you have that reasonable level of fitness you should be just fine....and if you feel like riding on the support bus one day or more, then you can do that as well. No problem or aspersion cast from your fellow travellers. The perfect thing is that you get to see the country side as it SHOULD be seen......Up close. Cuba is very beautiful and majestic in places with areas untouched and great vistas. Lovely to see from a bike. The tour starts and ends in Havana and you go East going through some of the most important places such as the historic Bay of Pigs area, World Heritage site of Trinidad, the National park, and the Bustling City's of Santiago and Havana....I'm not going to say all the secrets....I want you to go and find them yourself, but I promise you will NOT be disappointed. The history and beauty of the island is a great mix. You really learn a lot.

15 day bike and bus tour of Cuba. We had a group of 18 mostly English but also a Scot, 4 Australians and a lovely lady from Belgium. We were fortunate to be in Cuba during (and after) the mourning period for Fidel Castro. This gave a different perspective on the quiet side of Cuba with no music, few people in the streets of Havana, not to mention most places not serving alcohol. The trip showed us round Cuba from shore to shore and West to East, urban and country towns, mountains and sea all against the backdrop of Cuban struggles for independence and revolution. We followed a couple of days behind the Castro cavalcade to Santiago de Cuba and included a visit to his grave site (next to that of the National Hero Jose Marti).

Absolutely fabulous way to visit Cuba

The 15 day cycle trip through Cuba was simply wonderful! It was exhilarating to 1-cycle through small towns and villages and see things and people that other types of tours do not offer. Pressure about cycling was relaxed, so if you were having a bad day or were daunted by the hills, then you could take time off and ride in the bus. The team on our ride were spectacular! They were efficient, attentive, kind, cheerful and interesting. Our guide Alex, was funny, intelligent, on the ball, accomodating....and informative about many aspects of Cuba and with a good knowledge of Cuban history and society. He made our trip an absolute delight. On the whole hotels and Casas were good, food was way better than I was led to believe, and the cities and towns chosen for the itinerary were varied and interesting. Well worth the money!

Cuba magic

I had a very delayed start to my trip thanks to airline issues, all was forgotten on getting out of the airport and an arranged taxi driving me through Havana to my first destination. 1am and I was wide awake and glowing. All thanks to Exodus service (for the tour and for sorting my unexpected transport with no hassle), Cuba, the tour guide and drivers, the tour group, Cuba, Cuban people, Cuban architecture, the Cuban landscape, Cuba and Cuba. Oh, and the Atlantic and the Caribbean. And Cuba.

A cultural holiday where everything centres around the revolution. Many beautiful colonial style buildings (from the outside), and fantastic old American cars. Some challenging cycling in parts and sometimes not much to see out in the countryside, but lots to do in Havana and Trinidad. Capitalism has already moved in, and it becomes quite apparent to the tourist wherever you go.
