Choose this tour because…

A trip to Cuba is like a trip to a lost world. Cuba, due to its communist rule and American trade blockade, has been hidden in its own pocket of time. Although Fidel Castro passed away in 2016, and small changes have started to appear in the country, Cuba remains a country all to itself, and simply must be experienced!

On this tour, you visit the charming capital of Havana, which pulses with life, music and history. From the busy capital, the tour goes to the countryside and the lush Viñales Valley, where, among other things, you can see how their famous tobacco crops are grown.

The tour concludes in Trinidad, which is – if possible – even more charming and pleasant than Havana with its cobblestone streets and gorgeously colourful colonial buildings.  In Trinidad, you experience Cuban music and rhythm like nowhere else in the world. Put on your dancing shoes and get on the dance floor with a salsa, or lean back and enjoy the dancing crowds while you enjoy a chilled mojito.

On this tour, transport is done by bus, and you have private accommodation at “casa particulares”. You have some time at your leisure in the cities, or you can choose to purchase extra tours from home.
