In truth, Locally Sourced Cuba Tours almost happened by accident… a crossing of paths, a mutual love affair of Cuba and a meeting of minds on a trek to a waterfall was all it took to get the project underway. What followed was a team of passionate individuals from New Zealand and Cuba getting together with one aim in mind – to take tours in Cuba to the next level. This is our story.
So how do you improve and expand on the current tours in Cuba? That’s easy, you simply talk to the people that live and breathe Cuba every day. So to begin with we simply had lots of conversations with our ‘locally sourced team’. Casa owners, classic car drivers, salsa teachers, dive masters, Cuba tour guides and former tour members. It goes without saying that all of our newly inducted, pre-qualified tour consultants had sensible recommendations to make and advice to offer. All we had to do was listen and the rest they say is history – our tours in Cuba were created!
We can help you achieve in one adventure what has taken us years – to go inside the country in a deeper, more personal way.
Determining the actual destinations to take travellers to on our tours to Cuba was the easy part. However our team of local consultants could go one better than that – they could identify the very best and most interesting parts of Cuba to showcase at each destination. You shouldn’t automatically think that just because you are visiting Santiago de Cuba, Vinales or Trinidad you will truly understand those places… no, your experiences will only be shaped by who you meet, what you see and most importantly what you experience. So naturally this is where our focus lies!
The Cuba you venture into tomorrow has never existed anywhere else in the history of the world, and will most likely never exist again.
The result? A set of Locally Sourced Cuba Tour options that take enthusiastic participants into the very heart of of what makes Cuba such a fantastic travellers destination. While small group and private Cuba tours each focus on an interesting aspect of Cuba, they are anything but focused. Why not discover the rich history of Cuban culture and not be able to dive at some of the best dive sites in the Caribbean or take a Salsa lesson at a local Casa Particular (home stay) after a day exploring the sugar mills of Trinidad? Our story has led to us being able to deliver these types of authentic tours in Cuba which we are proud to deliver through Locally Sourced Tours – a unique Cuban experience. We do hope you enjoy the adventure as much as we do!
