What people are saying about Varadero
This whole experience was well worth the money. We had such a lovely time and all the people involved in the trip were great and welcoming. We got picked up at our hotel (albeit a lot later than they said) and then got a boat ride which was amazing fun and exciting to the place where the dolphins are. You get some drinks served on board. Roberto was our man on board and he was entertaining, fun, and welcoming to all! At the dolphin place you get to spend some time in the water with them interacting with them as guided by someone. They were beautiful creatures and so well trained. We had more drinks and danced on the boat ride back and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Cuba. Would highly recommend!
This is a great excursion. The history and architecture of Havana is amazing. Our guide, Ruben, shared so many great stories and I learned so much about Cuban culture. He was also very funny. The tour was very well organized while still allowing us time to explore a bit on our own. The Cuban people we met were very friendly and we always felt safe. A complete stranger overheard me ask a question to my son and just stopped to chat with us and answered everything we asked. The lunch provided was good and well organized allowing us to quickly get back to seeing the sights. If you’ve never been to Havana this tour is a must do. Walking through a 500 year old city with this much history is really special.
The food at the hotel restaurant that we stopped at was horrible. Only half of the tour guests went up to the buffet and the food was almost all gone. Had to wait after requesting the buffet staff to reload the pots. In other parts of the world this would not even be considered a buffet. Poor selection. Would be better to reduce the price of the tour and have an optional hour to eat at a restaurant of your choice.
The tour itself was good and the lunch place was good. The tour guide, Alejandro(?) is quite lively and informative. We were told that pick up was at 7:45. But by the time they got to us it was more like 8:40. Just know that it does take time to go through and pick everyone up.
It was an incredible experience to be able to hold, and just simply being in the water with the dolphins.
