SUSTAINABILITY

Our aim is to create a win-win way of travel that will have a long-lasting positive effect on the communities we visit. It’s more than a vacation, it’s an opportunity to give back and to leave the world a better place. Our trips are designed to empower local communities, foster relationships, and protect the environment.

ENJOY THE LOCAL LIFESTYLE!

Cuba has been voted most picturesque country in the world, no wonder it is a popular destination for travelers world wide.
While the cars, architecture and landscapes are amazing, it’s the Cuban people that provide the magical vibe!

We choose to stay at local Casas, they not only provides us with a much more intimate experience as we interact and engage with local families each day, but it is one of the ways where we can make sure that the money we spend in Cuba goes to the families that need it.

If anyone is considering a trip to Cuba my wife and I would wholeheartedly recommend Simply Cuba Tours. Orsolya Bartalis, the owner, was able to answer all our questions, remove any misgivings we may have had and guided us through the formalities before our departure. The tour itself was interesting and varied and provided an excellent introduction to this fascinating and often misunderstood country. Staying in private homes or small b&bs is a great way to have contact with the locals. Our guide/driver was very knowledgeable – not only about the history but also on the flora and fauna. Ten out of ten to everyone.

Yoanis was fantastic because he seemed as much just a local as a guide. Spending time with him just felt like I was spending time in Cuba with Cubans – while he had so much knowledge, what impressed me more was his ability to allow me to immerse myself into Cuban life. He knew all the answers to my questions, but more than that, I felt that by spending time with him, I was able to truly understand what it is to be Cuban.

Craig

Our driver was fantastic! On time and very courteous. Thank you so much for all your help Will definitely recommend you to our friends and family travelling to Cuba.

Mandy

We went on a birding photography tour with Orsolya and Yoanis (the owners) and a few other travellers that were in our group and it was such an incredible experience. My wife and I are Canadians and we have never been to Cuba before and our trip itinerary was organized perfectly where we got to stay at lovely home stays to support the locals and we got to go to all of the hidden spots to find endemic bird species. Highly recommend joining Simply Cuba Tours on any of their adventures. I will be back to do their Scuba diving tour with underwater photography very soon. It was really nice to see how they are giving back to the locals and creating really fun small group experiences.

Chase

We had an absolutely delightful time! Our guide, Yunior was simply amazing. The casas we stayed at were all fantastic. The families we stayed with were lovely and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious. Lily and her husband in Havana were incredibly helpful and made our stay truly fantastic. Plus the view from the casa during breakfast was absolutely breathtaking. In Cienfuegos the owner was super friendly and also highly skilled in the kitchen.

Overall our trip was filled with wonderful experiences and amazing hospitality.

Glenn and Joanne

Yunior was the Best!!! Amazing Tour <3

Stacy

I can’t thank you and Yoanis enough for this wonderful experience. Yoanis is so generous with his knowledge and the various activities and experiences were first rate. I loved the salsa lesson, the snorkelling, and seeing the different architectures of the various towns. I also very much enjoyed learning about Cuba’s history, and am saddened that such a wonderful country should be suffering such hard times.

With regard to the food, there was plenty of food. I must say that on the last breakfast in Vinales when we were served grapefruit, I was very glad that Yoanis doesn’t like it, so I ate the lot and loved it.

I wish you and Yoanis all the best in your venture, and I am sure you will be a great success. I hope that one day you can travel to Melbourne and we can meet again.

Sandi

Thoroughly enjoyed my experience with this company. Our personalised tour was professionally organized, transport and accommodation were comfortable and more than adequate. The tour guide was experienced and exceptional with local knowledge.

Can’t fault this company.

Mario and Mary-Anne

Yoanis is a great guide, we enjoyed a few capirinhas with him in Havana. We had a small family group for a tailor made day tour in Havana with the added challenge of a wheelchair user. It was great value and fantastic personalised service. Thanks again.
