Our Classic Cuba Tour

Ride in Classic Cars – Experience Local Culture – Eat Amazing Cuisine – Listen to Live Cuban Music – Smoke the Best Cigars

“We discovered Daryl’s ‘The Unconventional Travelers’ Classic Cuba tour by fortuitous conversation and were intrigued by his offer to customize the itinerary and make our visit something unique. From greeting us at the airport in a classic 1954 Ford, to a day long trip to the majestic limestone mogotes in the Vinales Valley and historic orchid gardens, to a walking tour of the historic squares and buildings in old Havana, we were constantly struck with his love for the Cuban people and his knowledge of the island. He handled all the arrangements – a lovely small hotel, meals at restaurants, drivers, translators – and knew all of the special places that visitors want to see, including in our case, Finca Vigia, the hilltop house of Ernest Hemingway. We look forward to a return trip!”
