Reviewed on 17 Jul 2023 by Michael KiernanThe operator organised a fantastic tour from the amazing casas to incredible tours and activities. Our guide Carlito could not have done more for us, was genuinely engaging and a pleasure to share our time with. We'd do this tour again tomorrow. Read full review

Reviewed on 24 Feb 2023 by Julian EvisonMost memorable was Trinidad - both the central and well known part of the town, but also wandering away from the center in to other parts to see how life is lived. Must also mention seeing humming birds - absolutely magical! Read full review

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThis tour is committed to providing travelers with an authentic and unforgettable small group tour experience in Cuba allowing travelers to go inside the country in a deeper, more personal way. You will have unrivalled access to local people from all walks of life while you experience an island that has so much to offer that sometimes you won’t even know where to begin (that’s what your experienced local guide is for). Our aim is to take you inside this remarkable society in a fun, respectful and meaningful way.
As an organisation our commitment to Cuba's environment and culture is unwavering as we are very much aware of the impact travel and tourism can have on a destination. For this reason we cap the number of people on the trip, so a group is no larger than 15 people. This enables us to source more authentic accommodation options and local transportation that makes a smaller footprint on the environment. Furthermore all of our tour guides and dance instructors are not only native to Cuba, but are passionate about the country they live in as well. This is of most importance to us, because we believe in showcasing the very best of Cuba and this starts with knowledgable guides who know the country inside out, for better and for worse. Using local guides (alongside local organisations) helps us contribute to local economies and give back to the communities we work with. We encourage our guides to speak honestly of the Cuba they have grown up in and there impressions of the outside world as a comparison. It also allows us to provide local employment and engagement in the community.
Our organisation has implemented and enforces a 7 point checklist which we share with our employees and fellow travelers that acts as a set of guidelines to help protect Cuba's natural environment. We also provide a set of recommendations to our travelers as to how they can can contribute, protect and enhance Cuba's culture and environment including learning some of the local language, carrying a water bottle and always disposing of waste in a responsible manner.
We ensure that all activities and excursions we include and recommend have minimal impact on the environment and wildlife as well.
PeopleOur ties to Cuba and its people are strong. We have built a network of people across Cuba who we affectionally call our 'Cuban family'. These include tour leaders, local guides, classic car drivers, Casa Particular (homestay owners), local restauranteurs, bar tenders and dance instructors all with there own stories to tell and experiences to share. We believe that giving something back to the community is essential, because it is this community that makes our tours such a success. We work with our fellow travelers, clients, employees, and local contacts to ensure the successes of our business go directly back into the community. This is not only good for the towns and cities we visit but it also gives our travelers more enriched adventures.
Our tours are committed to using local homestay accommodation, making your Cuban experience even more unique and memorable (not to mention fun!). Known as Casa Particulares, this type of accommodation is comfortable for guests and generally has very good facilities. They provide you with a great way to experience Cuban culture and interact with Cuban nationals.
Furthermore the activities we include and recommend in our tours, are ones that most benefit and are representative of the community.
All of our staff and local contacts are treated like family, enabling us to instil a sense of ownership amongst our stakeholders and deliver ongoing support to the Cuban people and economy. We know the country and its people inside out and our endeavour is to show the Cuba we love, live in and respect.
