With private enterprise growing in Cuba, take care when booking locally as you may unwittingly book unlicensed, or poor quality excursions. We can pre-book from the UK our own bespoke tours especially for our clients, and these are not available to purchase locally in Cuba.

Many of our private excursions have been created especially for our clients. You may find similar tours on offer in Cuba on a shared group basis (i.e. not private) at a lower price. These tours often operate with large numbers of tourists in the group, with multiple nationalities, and are subject to minimum numbers to operate which can result is last minute cancellations.

Buena Vista and Tropicana show tickets can be cheaper locally for last minute sales, however there is a high demand and frequent availability issues for these shows, so we do recommend pre-booking before travel.

If you pre-book any excursions with a packed lunch included, then we do recommend that you supplement the lunch with cereal bars, nuts, biscuits etc. as packed lunches can be basic.

Excursion prices are based on a minimum of 2 guests, single travellers may be required to pay more for some excursions due to us not being able to spread the cost of transfers, a guide etc. Please ask us for single prices if not provided.

Shared excursions pick up and drop off passengers only at hotels (not Casas Particulares).

Shared excursions (i.e. not exclusively for your party) are subject to a minimum number of people to operate and are reconfirmed in Cuba less than 72 hours before. On rare occasions, they are cancelled locally if minimum numbers are not confirmed, although the majority do operate without problems. To avoid disappointment, we would recommend booking private excursions (solely for your party).
