Cycling Cuba

I participated in the Western Cuba Tour from March 23-30, 2008 along with my husband Brent and our good friend Cindy. The entire tour was amazing from start to finish. Every single ride was well planned out, filled with uniquely Cuban experiences, and offered increasingly dramatic scenery. Justbikeforcuba when I thought the rides could not get any better, any more beautiful, any more interesting…they did.

In addition to exceptional riding, which is what drew me to the opportunity in the first place, we had great accommodations, wonderful food and good company. The Cuban guide, Jose, was extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly and fun! His “history” lessons were a welcome bonus to the tour and I learned quite a bit more than I anticipated about the political and cultural history of Cuba.

Luis was a patient and kind driver, not to mention skilled in navigating the Cuban roads…Hueco’s and all! In particular, Danny went out of his way to ensure every single individual on the tour had a fabulous time…from ‘sweeping’ cubatour2the riders to make sure everyone was OK on the mixed terrain, to creating opportunities to experience Cuba outside of the riding…the rums, the music, the fruit stands….it seemed that there was nothing that Danny would not do to make sure the tour was a great one.cubatour

What an amazing team you have in Cuba, I cannot wait to do another tour with MacQueen’s, and would not hesitate to recommend the tours to anyone….well, perhaps I will refrain from recommending the tours to octogenarians that have never been on a bicycle before….
The above tour was booked with WOW Cuba who operate through a Canadian Company (based in PEI) called MacQueen’s Island Tours.
