Our Cuba Tours
- Notes - Itineraries for the tours in Cuba can and do change during the course of the year due to a variety of reasons. We are not always able to advise you in advance of these changes. We ask for your understanding and flexibility in these cases.
Our Original Cuba Tours
If you are interested in immersing yourself in the 'real' Cuba, and are willing to share your experience with a small group of other like-minded travellers, then we recommend one of our Original tour itineraries.
Our original tours of Cuba don't include many activities. Instead, at each destination in Cuba, you can choose from optional activities that the tour guide will offer to arrange for you. This means that these original tour itineraries can cater to a wide range of people with diverse interests.
We welcome independence, so while on one of our tours you are also more than welcome to go off on your own at each destination in Cuba and find your own adventures.

We highly recommend our 15 day Original tour, or the 20 day Complete Cuba Tour if you have the time. If you only have 1 week then we've packed as many cultural highlights as possible into the 8 day Original Cuba tour. This is our most popular tour in Cuba.
Something more Comfortable
Once or twice a month we run our 9 day "Comfort Class" Essential Tour of Cuba using Comfort Guesthouses. This means that the accommodation is more comfortable than our Original Tours which use Standard Guesthouses. For this tour we also provide one of our more experienced and better performing guides, to further enhance the quality of service provided. If you are looking at a stay in Cuba of this length, are looking to get a taste of the authentic side of Cuba, and are prepared to pay a little bit more for extra comfort, then we highly recommend this tour.
Tours for U.S. citizens
Americans can actually join any of our tours in Cuba, as long as they fullfil the requirements for legal travel to Cuba. This involves travelling to Cuba in a way that satisfies conditions for a General License. This isn't too difficult, however an even easier way is to join one of our legal Cuba tours for Americans.
Non U.S. citizens can also join these tours that have a full itinerary of cultural and educational activities and use services that support private Cuban businesses. Having a full schedule of activities included, as well as most meals, these tours represent an alternative to our Original style Cuba tours which involve only essential inclusions, and mostly free time at each destination. The accommodation on these tours is also slightly more comfortable with Comfort Guesthouses being used in Havana.
Something more Relaxing
The 6 day Western Cuba tour is a more relaxing alternative to our Original style of tours Cuba. There is still plenty of opportunity to interact with the local Cubans, but the pace of travel of the tour is a little slower, and the travel days shorter. This tour also forms the last segment in the 20 Day Complete Cuba Tour, and is a perfect way to wind down your time in Cuba providing you with time to relax and reflect upon your experiences in Cuba with some stunning scenery along the way.
Keen on the outdoors?
If you like exploring natural areas, and staying physically active you will be well suited to our 10 Day Multi-Sport Tour. It includes a half-day cross country cycling excursion through the Vinales Valley, a 2 day trek through the Escambray mountains near Trinidad, as well as opportunities for snorkelling & scuba diving, zip-lining, and even caving.
For private groups we also offer the Eastern Cuba tour. This tour includes a 2 day trek in Cuba's highest mountain range - the Sierra Maestra - and there are lots of other outdoor activities as options along the way.
Short on time?
You can add a tour extension, either to the start, or the end of your tour. You can also add extra days in Havana before or after the tour. We recommend these at the end of your tour. This will be better than doing so before the tour, because during the tour you will have learnt how things work in Cuba and you'll have a better idea about what you want to see and how to go about it.
