From Historic Havana to the rural provinces, every moment of these special trips is packed with memorable interactions with the local people...

My experience in Cuba allowed me to see the Cuban people of all ages in their day-to-day activities, cultural settings, exhibiting their many talents. I was so impressed with their open arms and hearts to our group. –Susan Ramming

So glad you are offering cultural exchange trips to Cuba! Even though this wasn’t a typical Backroads trip (no biking, no intensive hiking), it absolutely felt 100% Backroads. Our Trip Leaders took us off the beaten path to discover a Cuba I never could have seen on my own—and I doubt I could have experienced with another tour company. –Rue Richey

Thank you for organizing Cuba. We knew from the start it would be different than the typical trip. Every day had a "gem" that was very special and felt like you were seeing and hearing something unique to Cuba. Loved all the insights and unique people we met; loved the trip! –Clayton Lewis
