The 15 day Original tour of Cuba is our most long-standing itinerary. It packs into 2 weeks what we consider the most fascinating elements of this unique country. As well as visiting many of Cuba's natural and historic highlights, our focus is on contact with the Cuban people and their culture. A local Cuban tour guide accompanies the group throughout, and accommodation is mostly in the homes of Cuban families.

Additional Comments: Cuba is a lot more expensive than most developing countries. Be prepared to pay as much on the tour in Cuba for food and services, as you would in any western ‘developed’ country.In total as an estimate, where no meals or activities are included, you need to allow about 35 to 50 CUC per day for expenses for the tour not including local payment and souvenirs.
