The "Cuba" trip starts from and ends in Havana. It is a cultural, religious and historic sites trip that takes 15 days taking you through Santa Clara, Havana, Santiago De Cuba and 5 other destinations in Cuba. "Cuba" is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Beyond what the world's interpretation of what Cuba has been lies a country that is full of life. Our Cuba group tours introduce you to a life that has a way of making you tap your toes to the soft rhythm of the salsa beat echoing down alleyways of colonial buildings whose walls are slowly chipping away with the weathering of time.

A life that welcomes visitors with a broad smile even as locals fiercely play dominoes outside their houses; where the wafting smell of cigars mix in with the sweet smell of fresh fruit; where the turquoise coloured ocean laps at soft white sand and the sound of laughter is never far away.

It is true the Cuba we have read about is a far cry from this complex Caribbean island, and is continually evolving. Our guided tours to Cuba offer the chance to learn about the people, the history, and the culture, in an intimate way that will allow even the most intrepid traveller to experience something new.

Beginning and ending in Havana, once known to the Spanish as the key to the new world (La llave del Mundo), the moment you arrive in Cuba it is hard to not recognize both its colonial importance and revolutionary past. With opulent buildings such as grand theatres on elegant boulevards to the ornate plazas found in the old city, Havana gleams with an old world charm that has not been spoiled by skyscrapers and new developments. The white, red and blue flag of Cuba is found around every corner and the pride of this country very noticeable.

Away from the downtown core are massive, blocky Soviet-style buildings, reminding visitors of a communist government with offices decorated with the faces of Camilo Cienfuegos and Che Guevara, two revolutionaries whose legendary status are hard to escape. Even further away from the classic cars of the 1950s and the hustle of Havana, is where Cuba group tours shine.

From the tobacco fields of Vinales where karst mountains rise and fall between plantations, to the musical soul of Trinidad, a preserved colonial town still standing amongst once the gleaming sugar capital of the country, guided tours to Cuba show a different side than just the revolution. It shows a country that has survived despite all the odds against them. It also shows the diversity of a country that came together in times of need, from French migrants who arrived in Cienfuegos, to African slaves in the Valle de los Ingenios, to the Spanish who filled the big cities such as Santiago or Santa Clara.

Cuba group tours also take in the non-political side of the country, venturing into the mountains of the Escambray to discover the herbal medicines used historically by Cubans and the biodiversity found in this Caribbean paradise. One step into our guided tours to Cuba shows the traveller that this is a place like no other. As a company that has been leading Cuba group tours for decades, trust in our expert leaders and quality guides to help you understand the complexities of this island and allow you to enjoy in the richness of its culture.
