Gardner Tours is committed to delivering the most professional, comprehensive, and entertaining tours in Cuba!
It started while traveling around the globe in 2010. Colby Gardner, owner and guide, is a researcher and a relationship developer at heart. As he traveled, built relationships, and encountered new cultures and experiences, he began to compile databases of info from his favorite countries along the way. Eventually, the knowledge of his travel experience, relationships, and these databases began to get out. After helping setup private vacations for numerous friends and family encompassed with a need to create personal economy, someone suggested “With all of that expertise and data, you should think about starting your own travel company!” And so Gardner Tours began!
Built on family values, we desire to serve you wholeheartedly, and will take care of you like family along the way. That’s our guarantee!
We are proud to serve travelers from all over the world from the USA, Sweden, Finland, Greece, Canada, Turkey, Slovenia, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Poland, Mexico, China, Thailand, Syria, Costa Rica, India, and on! See what our travelers have to say…
