What people are saying about Varadero
This whole experience was well worth the money. We had such a lovely time and all the people involved in the trip were great and welcoming. We got picked up at our hotel (albeit a lot later than they said) and then got a boat ride which was amazing fun and exciting to the place where the dolphins are. You get some drinks served on board. Roberto was our man on board and he was entertaining, fun, and welcoming to all! At the dolphin place you get to spend some time in the water with them interacting with them as guided by someone. They were beautiful creatures and so well trained. We had more drinks and danced on the boat ride back and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Cuba. Would highly recommend!
This is a great excursion. The history and architecture of Havana is amazing. Our guide, Ruben, shared so many great stories and I learned so much about Cuban culture. He was also very funny. The tour was very well organized while still allowing us time to explore a bit on our own. The Cuban people we met were very friendly and we always felt safe. A complete stranger overheard me ask a question to my son and just stopped to chat with us and answered everything we asked. The lunch provided was good and well organized allowing us to quickly get back to seeing the sights. If you’ve never been to Havana this tour is a must do. Walking through a 500 year old city with this much history is really special.
Fantastic tour, with some wonderful guys, Luis and Jojo, funny and very knowledge, they were able to answer all our quistions and made a wonderful day for us ;) The car was good, and the driving itself was an experience, driving thru many Cuban cities on our way. We had 2 good stop for breakfast and dinner. We had about 1,5 hours in each city: Trinidad and Cienfuegos - could had spent some more time just walking around, especially in Trinidad, but we also had a long drive home, so it was okay. If you go on this trip, be aware of many hours drive, but definitely worth it - we recommend this trip highly ;)
The tour itself was good and the lunch place was good. The tour guide, Alejandro(?) is quite lively and informative. We were told that pick up was at 7:45. But by the time they got to us it was more like 8:40. Just know that it does take time to go through and pick everyone up.
I was very happy with our excursion to Cayo Blanco. The staff were friendly and lots of fun and the drinks were plentiful. The food on the island was good and the bar was excellent. Overall we had a fantastic day.
