What makes us different?

My name is Ayna Davies, a Cuban now living in Australia. I want everyone to see the Cuba I grew up in before it’s gone forever.

Experience Cuba Tours Founder Ayna Davies

I didn't like seeing tourists packaged onto cigars-and-Chevrolets tours run by the government. The tourists on these coaches packed their bags searching for an experience and ended up with a holiday. If only they’d had inside advice from someone who knows how Cuba works.

That’s why I set up Experience Cuba Tours with my husband, Nick. From my new hometown of Perth, Australia, we create private and small group tours of Cuba for travellers from Australia and around the world. All our private tours are bespoke. Our clients are travellers who want to experience the real Cuba in the company of a guide who might just become a lifelong friend.

Today, Experience Cuba Tours is an award-winning tour operator supporting more than 100 Cuban guides, drivers, hosts and co-ordinators. They take our travellers into the real Cuba to make experiences they’ll talk about for years.


Our family is your family!

We promise our customers an authentic and unforgettable Cuban Experience.

Meet some of the incredible people that makes the "magic" happen!

A Wonderful Experience

"We had the experience of a lifetime visiting Cuba on an ECT (Experience Cuba Tours)...this was organised in Perth Australia and we had the pleasure of meeting Nick in person. We were very pleased the way our trip was organised, the Casas were all great...but the breakfasts served were so big and fit for a King. Cecilia was an amazing guide, her English was perfect and she was so passionate about Cuba....we went to so many amazing places. Cuba was not a holiday it was an amazing experience. Yes we will go back again."

The only way to tour Cuba

"We had a great experience visiting Cuba with all our travel within Cuba looked after by Experience Cuba Tours. It was truly an unforgettable experience. We found Cuba to be very safe. I do hope their internet/wifi is more freely available in the future as we were not able to have much access to the internet.

Great work Nick & Ayna we had the best experience thanks to all your hard work."

An Unforgettable Trip

"Our trip to Cuba was simply the most amazing experience and one that we will never forget. The success of the trip was primarily due to our wonderful guide Brian, the loveliest man who had so much energy and enthusiasm when it came to sharing the history, geography and culture of his country. We have no hesitation in recommending Experience Cuba Tours to anyone who asks about our travels in Cuba. A fabulous trip organised perfectly by a most reliable company. ECT helped us to experience the real Cuba....exactly what we wanted to do!"
