Travel to Cuba is no longer a pipe dream for Americans. The news has been buzzed about back and forth for quite some time, but now it is a firm reality. IsramWorld announced at Virtuoso Travel Week in Las Vegas that it will launch a series of itineraries to Cuba.
The nine-day, eight-night tour will be presented to audiences by three IsramWorld brands: tours for general travelers through Latour; tours for LGBT travelers through PrideWorld; and tours for travelers interested in Cuba's Jewish heritage under IsramWorld. Full details on the itineraries are available here.
The first departure will be November 29, with a total of four departures in 2013. IsramWorld began the process of negotiating tours with the Justice and Treasury departments back in 1995.
Itineraries include exploring the sites of Havana and beyond, but also includes meetings and exchanges with Cuban professionals, including academics, artists, performers, economists, environmentalists, designers, trade unionists, urban planners, healthcare specialists and more.
