cuba

May 25-June 2, 2017

Discovery Tours invites you to Cuba, on an educational exchange. Each day, we emphasize people-to-people exchange during stays in two major cultural centers: Cienfuegos and Havana. The thrill of our small group itinerary is in meeting those who shape today's Cuba and have been shaped by the country's past. During visits to cultural venues, you'll join two or three other travelers for private talks with an artist, musical performer, or other locals. It's the warmest welcome you can imagine, from a country you'll never forget.
