What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?
Being able to see Cuba from a bicycle: it really is the best way to see/smell/hear a country. Also, it might sound like a cliche, but there really is music everywhere you go in Cuba so music lovers will enjoy themselves especially in the Casas de la Trova.Read more

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader
Jaime did a very good job of keeping everybody happy despite some classically Cuban problems along the way (restaurants losing our reservations, hotels claiming to have no record of our meal booking etc). He was very happy to share his knowledge and opinions on life in Cuba and made sure we were safe and happy at all times. Our bus driver spoke minimal English but was an excellent driver and great support during a long ride.
What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour
Take high factor sunscreen. Do a few cycle rides beforehand. You need a certain level of fitness as you will be cycling about 10-15km at a time in 30 degree heat but you really don't need to be an athlete (I'm not!). I was worried about the distances involved and thought I might not be able to make it but there was no problem, although I sat on the bus along La Farola because the hills are very steep! Bring a sense of humour. Cuba's customer service (in shops, restaurants etc) is not always what we're used to in the UK. I am happy to go with the flow but some people can get a bit stressed when plans have to change. Relax and accept that what you get is often better than the original plan! Learn some basic Spanish before you go. It makes life a lot easier as a lot of people in the places you'll visit won't speak much English.
Do You Have Anything Else To Add
I am seriously considering cycling in Cuba again with Explore, I had such a great time and I loved the Cuban people.
