- The tour was very good and covered a large part of Cuba over two weeks. Our Guide Juan Hose was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. I learnt an immense amount about Cuba, the people and the history of the island. I would say that walking poles are essential as some of the treks (Pico Turquino) are very steep and also slippery when wet. Accommodation was generally good and a particular highlight for me was staying in a Casa Particulares in Trinidad. There is apparently a shortage of hotels in Havana which meant that at the start and finish of the tour we were in a good and not so good hotel which were both a good half hour taxi ride away from the Old Town area. Food was surprisingly good on the trip too.
