Why Tour With Us?

As part of the Locally Sourced Tours group, Locally Sourced Cuba Tours is dedicated to providing you with an authentic and unforgettable Cuba tour experience. We can help you achieve in one adventure what has taken us years – to go inside the country in a deeper, more personal way. With Locally Sourced Cuba Tours you will have unrivalled access to local people from all walks of life while you experience an island that has so much to offer that sometimes you won’t even know where to begin (that’s what your experienced local English-speaking Cuban tour guide is for). Whether you are meeting respected Cuban professionals, exploring local farmland, staying with a Cuban family, taking dance classes, or diving at some of the most pristine locations in the Caribbean, our Cuba tours will help you to discover the real Cuba first-hand. We aim to do this as genuinely as possible, with little impact on the Cuban environment and culture.


The premise behind Locally Sourced Tours, is exactly what our name suggests – where possible, everything in our tours is ‘locally sourced’. Now this isn’t exactly a novel idea for tours in Cuba – more of a necessity actually. Where we differ is that we are constantly speaking to our team of local Cuba experts to bring you the very best in Cuban itineraries, excursions, accommodation and experiences. This qualifies our tours to receive the ‘Locally Sourced‘ stamp of approval. At Locally Sourced Cuba all of our staff and local contacts are treated like family, enabling us to instill a sense of ownership amongst our stakeholders and deliver ongoing support to the Cuban people and economy. We know the country and its people inside out and our endeavor is to show the Cuba we love, live in and respect – beyond the often clichéd images of Ché, cigars, rum, classic American cars and the Buena Vista Social Club. The sense of ownership amongst our staff means that we truly care about our clients. We are able to be more flexible and reactive, providing a safety blanket for people who travel on a private or group Cuba tour with us. The Cuba you will discover with Locally Sourced Cuba Tours is as diverse as it is complex, and will sometimes raise more questions than can be easily answered. Our aim is to take you inside this remarkable society in a fun, respectful and meaningful way.
