Has Anyone

I noticed in the Nolitour book that they offer two, eight day coach tours of Cuba. All meals are included and you stay mostly at four star hotels and resorts. You even stay at a few AI resorts during these tours. I am just curious as to know if any member here has actually gone on one of these tours that travel all over Cuba.

sounds like it could be a very interesting tour

Nolitours offers this tour out of the Cayo Coco Area.

We had rented a car a couple of years ago and on our trek we stopped at a roadside restaurant. There was a bus tour there that was doing the same thing. Now they had arranged everything themselves, but it is the same idea. They loved it! I know it is something I would like to do. I think I would take them up on the offer to stay at a resort after the tour, as it does seem busy and I would need a holiday from that holiday! lol
