For you, Cuba might mean La Revolución cubana, Fidel and Che. It might mean the Cuban Missile Crisis or Los Marielitos, overloading hastily rented boats to escape to Miami in 1980. Perhaps, Cuba conjures Hemingway cruising down the hill from Finca Vigía in his Chrysler New Yorker, the top down and Mary beside him, for a date with the daiquiris at El Floridita in Old Havana.
For 600 years, the trade winds have blown conquerors, adventurers, traders, spies, mobsters, dictators and celebrities onto Cuba’s friendly shores. A collection of historical peculiarities means that for a little while yet you could still walk the same streets they did, drink coffee on the same portales, dance salsa under the same murals and drift with the top down in the same cars.
Experience Cuba is here for the travellers, the ones who want to get intimate with the real Cuba.
But there is the Cuba that the locals know and the Cuba for tourists, packaged for overseas travel agents by government entities.
Our private tours are bespoke, and they support more than 100 proud Cuban drivers, guides and hosts who want to welcome you into the real Cuba. They will show you things tourists will never see; they will invite you into their homes, and talk to you over dominoes and rum about their lives and their island’s history.
Because our tours are made for you, every itinerary starts with a conversation about what Cuba means for you. Whether you’re a photographer, a student of history, a lover of art and culture or a combination of all those things, we will make sure your Cuban experience is so much more than just a holiday.
