Cuba

What you will experience on this tour: friendly people, exotic & safe country, beautiful scenery, culture and architecture, rainforest, beaches, salsa, politics, cigars, rum, seafood/lobster, cycling and walking. However, you can change the priorities according to your interests as we are flexible and have contacts in all fields.

Due to the fact that circumctances and conditions are changing daily in Cuba as well as keeping your travel plans flexible and more personal, we offer this destination with private touring options rather than scheduled departure dates.

Below two sample itineraries for private touring from 2 passengers with daily departures.
The itineraries can be tailored to your requirements. Talk to us and we can work out the perfect trip for you.

Tour Philosophy for all tours

Travellers not tourists: You want to connect with the people and places you visit. You want to open up your heart and mind to new experiences. You want to go places others don’t get to.

• Low impact, small groups, socially responsible travel
• Giving you an unforgettable travel experience with a balance of sightseeing, activity and leisure
• Enhancing our understanding of the world around us and ultimately ourselves
• Respecting people and their culture, flora and fauna
• Focusing on the ‘off the beaten track’ places, showing you the hidden gems

We offer you personal small group tours where you get individual attention and enjoy a certain amount of flexibility. Your needs are looked after and we ensure your comfort, safety and wellbeing from the time your guide picks you up at the airport to the conclusion of the journey. We invite you to come along and let us introduce you to the sights, sounds and people, and the excitement and diversity of the destinations we visit.

This are fully escorted small group tours with a maximum of 6 people. Smaller numbers mean a smaller vehicle which allows us to use the ‘roads less travelled’ which are always the more interesting and scenic options. Smaller numbers also allow us to stay in B&B’s or guest houses which brings us closer to the local people. For the most part of this journey we will travel in the comfort of an air conditioned vehicle with our own personal driver. Being in a smaller group we can enjoy a higher flexibility to adjust the journey to the individual requirements of each participant.

South India

A rich tapestry of culture, history and stunning beauty, Kerala Backwaters, Chennai music and dance festival, cool hill stations, historic temples and vibrant ashrams, opulent palaces, great food and much more.

This tour focuses on the rich cultural heritage of Southern India and the scenic beauty and wildlife of the Nilgiri Mountains of the Western Ghats. We will enjoy some of the finest Indian carnatic classical music and dance at the annual Chennai Music Festival at the start of the January tour. We will visit hill stations and be invigorated by their cool and peaceful atmosphere and breathtaking beauty. There you can ride an elephant, visit organic spice gardens and learn about ayurvedic herbs and medicine. We stroll through ancient palaces, explore and enjoy the views from a historic fort, and get swept up in the religious fervor at famous temples and pilgrimage sites. We will also cruise the Keralan backwaters, stay a couple of nights at an ashram, and visit the most beautiful beach in southern India. The utopian city of Auroville offers some amazing modern architecture and gives us an insight into this alternative lifestyle community which has been thriving since the 1970,s.


This is a personal, fully escorted small group tour with a maximum of 10 people. Smaller numbers means a smaller vehicle which allows us to use the ‘roads less travelled’ which are always the more interesting and scenic options. Smaller numbers also allows us to stay in smaller towns and use B&B’s or guest houses. For the most part of this journey we will travel in the comfort of an air conditioned vehicle with our own personal driver. Accommodation style varies, from luxury to guesthouses and B&B’s to basic facilities at the ashram. Rooms have en-suites, but may not always be air conditioned. It is winter in South India, and temperatures are at their most pleasant generally, warm but less humid. The cuisine in India is a highlight, and we mostly eat in Indian Restaurants, with a few places where we can indulge in some Western food.

MonikaTravel - South India with Frank Burton

Frank Burton

A traveller at heart, I have been living in tropical North Queensland, Australia, since 1980 except for three years spent in the highlands of Papua New Guinea. My travels and explorations have taken me to over sixty countries around the world. Ultimately all travel leads us back to ourselves, and for many years now my own journeys have taken on a more inward nature. Travelling many times to India I have met some great living spiritual masters there. Whilst motorcycling around South India, enjoying the freedom to roam and stop anywhere, and finding some amazing places, the idea came to put together a couple of tours to share with others the fun and exhilaration that is India today. So in 2006 Inside Tours came into being….. When not conducting tours to India I have been working for the past 14 years here in North Queensland as a free lance tour guide.


My passions are travelling, meeting people, exploring philosophy and spirituality, Indian culture and Indian classical music and dance. I enjoy wild places with nature’s beauty and perfection.


My philosophy is simple: low impact, small groups, socially responsible travel
• Giving you an unforgettable travel experience with a balance of sightseeing, activity and leisure
• Donating 10% of profits to charitable causes in the region
• Enhancing our understanding of the world around us and ultimately ourselves
• Respecting people and their culture, flora and fauna
• Focusing on the ‘off the beaten track’ places, showing you the hidden gems


I can offer you a personal small group tour where you get individual attention and enjoy a certain amount of flexibility. Your needs are looked after and I ensure your comfort, safety and wellbeing from the time I pick you up at the airport to the conclusion of the journey. I invite you to come along and let me introduce you to the sights, sounds and smells, and the excitement and diversity of South India today.
