We had the privilege of going to Cuba booking a 5 day custom private tour with GayCuba and had an amazing time,one of our best vacations! They helped us create a fully customized tour for the two of us, including a night at the Tropicana, day trip to Viñales, walking tour of Old Havana and much more. The booking process was easy, payment made via PayPal was smooth and quick. Our tour guide “Junior” greeted us at the airport upon arrival and our private car took us to our Havana apartment 1 block from the Malecon. Close to a Cadeca, to exchange money. The accommodations were great,clean, large AC and an incredible view of the Malecon. Junior spoke English, was well educated, well spoken, hip, politically aware, creative, fun, funny and very talented artist. Wow... We went to some amazing Jazz Clubs, Roof Top Bars, Exciting local paladares with live music. We also visited a gay club and saw a drag show, what fun! We had the privilege of riding the most amazing antique cars during our 5 day trip, ate at a farm to table restaurant in Viñales and got a glimpse into the minds of the Cuban people and their struggles. How amazing the people are. We felt totally safe and comfortable everywhere. We HIGHLY recommend GayCuba If you really want to experience Cuba .This is the way to go....

Being my first time in Cuba, I was nervous about what to expect and had several questions. Gay Cuba tours answered all my questions via phone and email prior to arrival, always quick to respond, and made me and my friends traveling with me comfortable before we arrived into the port. There was a very long line to go through customs once getting off the ship, but our guide was waiting there, as planned, for the extra 45 min we were late.
We organized a custom tour that featured a walk through the old town, with detailed explanations in well-spoken English of the different plazas and historical buildings. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, more that I expected, and very honest about life in Cuba, including gay life.
We were not able to do the farm to table lunch tour we wanted, but substituted that with a beach excursion which was perfect, and beautiful. I did not expect to eat fresh fish on the white sandy beaches when I was in Havana. Our guide gave us a chance to freshen up on the ship prior to continuing our tour, which was ideal (I also fit in a 30 min power nap).
When we met up again it was for the rooftop sunset tour, were we went to an impressive new hotel with gorgeous views for a drink. Then our guide brought us to a lovely dinner based on what we were in the mood for. The end of the tour was to go to 1 or 2 of the gay bars that evening (since our ship wasn't leaving until 5:30AM) but our group was too exhausted from all the activities of the day to keep the party going. Our guide was super accommodating with us and patient. I highly recommend this tour company for gay passengers of cruises, or visitors flying in. And I recommend for all people, not just gay. However since it's naturally interesting for gay people to learn about gay life in other cities, then this is a true gem for that market.

Gay Cuba Tours provided us with outstanding service during our first trip to Cuba. Our tour guide was highly knowledgeable, personable and insightful on the history and culture of Havana and Cuba. I did not know Gay Cuba Tours before this trip, it was organized by my travel companion, but they exceeded my expectations.

A group of friends and I (all gay) visited Cuba in 2016 for the first time. I organized three different tours (Valle de Viñales Vintage Day Trip, Mi Cayito Beach Experience, and Colonial Havana Walking Experience) with GayCuba and had them help us plan some of our dining and nightlife activities. Each tour met or exceeded our expectations, and they picked excellent restaurants for us. I would not hesitate to use them again if I return or to recommend them to visiting friends.

We spent about 6 days in Cuba and were thrilled with GayCuba. The service was very personal and detailed. They had a detailed plan for us (in vintage cars, of course) and always had options when we were not interested in something.

We did a cruise on Carnival Paradise in February 2018, out of Tampa. The April 2018 date listed below was the earliest date TripAdvisor would let me choose. It was a five day trip that included in overnight stay in Havana. I was interested in booking a tour with some locals and was also interested in what gay life in Cuba was like. I did a search on the internet and was directed towards this company. It was a very informative website and I made contact via email. They were very helpful in setting up two tours that included a walk through historic Old Havana, which is adjacent to the cruise terminal, and a Fine Arts cultural tour the next morning. The walk through Old Havana the first afternoon was very informative and included a ride in two vintage American convertibles, which was a lot of fun! Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. The next morning the guide was a different young gentleman, with excellent English, who took us over to the Fine Arts museum. He was very knowledgeable about not only the paintings that were exhibited there but the various Cuban artists represented. While we learned a lot about Cuban history and culture, I think the best part was actually being able to spend time with these two young gentleman and learn about their lives in Cuba as gay men! With only 6 people to one guide it made the whole experience very personal and special. They not only provide tours of Havana but other cities within Cuba as well. If this kind of personal exposure to Cuban life, history and culture, with a gay twist, interests you, and if you have an extended stay in Cuba, or even just an overnight like we had, I would recommend that you check out their website and contact them for more information!
