The best of Western Cuba - the classic triangle of Havana, Viñales and Trinidad combining the best of big city Cuba, rural and tropical Cuba and hidden-in-time colonial Cuba. The best way to see Cuba if your interests are culture, people, history, music and the three main UNESCO heritage sites of Old Havana, Viñales valley and Trinidad. And while it's not a beach vacation you can even spend a day or two on a Caribbean beach along the way.

 

All tours can start any day of the year. The only thing you need to organize yourself is a plane ticket. With that in hand, let the adventure begin.

Havana | Cubas mystic, lively, colorful, warm and never-sleeping capital. A city that compares to nothing you have ever seen. From the cobblestoned music-filled streets of Old Havana to the famous Malecón ocean walk and onto happening Vedado and Miramar, Havana is one of the worlds most exciting, crazy, strange and breathtaking cities.

 

Viñales | Beautiful valley three hours West of Havana known not only for growing the worlds best tobacco, but also for it's unique limestone mountains and lush and green colors everywhere. A UNESCO protected valley almost hidden in time.

 

Cienfuegos | French-inspired colonial Cienfuegos, city of hundred fires, touching out on the Caribbean is well worth a night or two. Not very touristy, Cienfuegos will give you a great chance to stroll around in a lively every-day Cuban city (Cienfuegos is only included in 13-15 night tours)

 

Trinidad | World famous colonial pearl on the Southern coast. UNESCO protected town with cobblestoned streets and houses in every color that exists. Music all over, lots of atmospheric restaurants.

Notes on tours:

- All tours are private. Meaning it's just you and yours with a guide, you'll never do a tour with us as part of a group.

* The Trinidad nature drive includes some LIGHT hiking to waterfalls. Normal street shoes are fine. If you do not want to hike on this excursion, please let us know when booking your trip.

* The Trinidad nature drive is not included in 1 PX trips to cut down on costs for a single traveler.

 

 

cuba tour transfers

 

Duration and types of transfers are indicative only. If you choose "coach" you will need to make the online registration and reservation yourself. We are not able to do this. Often car/van and driver is the most effective means of transfer on tour less than 14 days.

cuba tour rates

TOUR01 : CITY, NATURE & COLONIAL

 

Please send us a mail and tell us what your ideal tour is. We will engage in a short dialog with you and design your tailormade itinerary and quote.

 

Our itineraries include: Breakfast every morning, all accommodations (in quality casas particulares/B&B's with A/C and private bath) and transfers including private airport pick-up and drop-off, tours as described, fuel for guided drives, all taxes and local fees.

 

Do not include: Tourist cards (visas), personal travel insurance, entrance to additional points of interest that are not included in the tours/quote, airport departure tax (usually paid for in your ticket price), other meals.

 

Tour summary: The tour is what we call 'semi-self-guided'. This means we arrange all the basics: Accommodations, transfers and essential guided tours, walks and drives and in Havana restaurant reservations as well as tickets for your preferred show or entertainment. You manage your own free time outside of set activities included and make your own way from your accommodations where an organized transfer is not mentioned in your itinerary/quote.

 

In short, our tours are for those who do not need or want to be a with a big group and a 24/7 guide to be comfortable, but who aren't comfortable either arriving in Cuba with nothing arranged and no plans. People who enjoy having a basic itinerary down and knowing they will meet Cubans eager to tell them about the country, professional English speaking guides for basic tours preparing them to explore on their own afterwards.

 

The tour is perfect for people comfortable improvising and having time on their own. It is not perfect for people who have perhaps never traveled abroad and are not comfortable arranging anything on their own or doing some walking and exploring on their own in what is otherwise one of the safest countries on the planet.

 

Notes on room configuration:

* Sleeping 3 PX in 1 room, the third will usually sleep in a single. Not recommended for people requiring a quality bed. The third bed is often not very comfortable. Doable for an uncomplicated teen.

** Sleeping 4 PX in one room is only possible if at least one is a smaller child sharing the parents double and one is a child/teen fine with sleeping in a single bed that may or may not be very comfortable.

- Three adults are recommended to book at least two rooms.

- Two adults in one room should be ready to share a double. If two adults want to be completely sure of having seperate beds, they should book two rooms. Many houses do not offer twin double rooms.
