Amazing Cuba Tour
This 11 day / 9 night group tour is the perfect way to experience Cuba. Cuba is changing fast, so this is a great time to visit while its exotic and distinctive style remains. Discover faded colonial grandeur in Havana and Trinidad, delightful rolling countryside, tobacco and coffee plantations, the historical sites of the revolution and the ever-present rhythms of the son and mambo styles of music.
