Latour Expands "People-to-People" Trip Offerings to Cuba

havanaIn the wake of last week's House of Representatives vote against relaxing long-standing restrictions on U.S. citizens' travel to Cuba, Latour has announced it will increase the number of its 2015 and 2016 licensed people-to-people tour programs to Cuba.

"Ever since we began our people-to-people tour programs to Cuba in 2013, the interest in visiting Cuba, and meeting and interacting with the Cuban people, has soared," says Richard Krieger, president of the IsramWorld Portfolio of Brands, parent company of Latour.

Latour currently has a schedule of 38 departures of its nine-day/eight-night tour programs to Cuba, from now through the summer of 2016.

"But we will be adding more dates to the program because interest is so intense, and because the IsramWorld Portfolio of Brands has been committed to tourism to Cuba for more than 20 years since our first tours to the island in the mid-1990's," said Krieger in a written release.

Latour's Cuba programs are available with three differing itineraries, with offerings tailored to general-interest travelers ("Hello Cuba!"); Jewish travelers ("Shalom, Cuba"); and PrideWorld's "Cuban Pride" for LGBT travelers.
