Cuba is an important neighbor to the US. I’m so glad I went to see for myself and learn first-hand, while visiting Cuba is still an option.

This is the first time my wife and I travel through Road Scholar. We had an Excellent Experience. All activities were executed as planned. The Cuban tourist Guide was very knowledgeable and patient to answer all questions. The Road Scholar Guide coordinated all activities very well. And last but not least the Cuban People are amazingly friendly. I will definitely use Road Scholar for my next trip. Thanks Omar Vitobaldi

This Road Scholar experience was so well done that I feel it changed me. This experience provided a view and understanding of the people of Cuba, that has made me a more aware and empathetic person. An investment of time and money, well worth it.

This exceptional trip allowed me to appreciate the Cuban people as having resiliance in the midst of adversity. It is a somewhat difficult trip and well worth it as I find myself experiencing my world with more patience, compassion and especially appreciation. I have never been hugged and smiled at by so many strangers! This itinerary is filled with many unforgettable experiences...

Our visit to Cuba was amazing. The lectures, guides, bus driver, and especially our trip leader and Cuban guide were simply amazing! The trip was not only educational, provided a unique opportunity to interact with the Cuban people, but delightful in fulfilling a bucket list dream. I definitely intend to go back.

I would highly recommend Road Scholar for an informative visit to another country/culture. It is a good program and one you can use as a base to explore that culture more on your own.

Our trip to Cuba was a wonderful learning experience and opportunity to learn about this close-by neighbor. Program was comprehensive, varied, and informative. Guides and lecturers were first class! 3 cultural activities( danc performance, chamber orchestra, and vocal group) were all outstanding. Food is plentiful but less varied than in Us. Service is generally good but spotty at times. Food quality is sometimes good and sometimes less so due to limitations of Cuban economy and system. We had a great time!

Cuba is our neighbor. This is a comprehensive and illuminating picture of the culture and survival skills of its people. It is also an opportunity to present a picture to the Cubans of our culture.

My first solo trip! Fantastic experience! Our group leader, James Fitch, did an amazing job and our local guide, Alejandro Anido, was extremely knowledgeable about Cuba and answered our many, many questions with great detail and enthusiasm. This made Cuba come alive for us! Fun and interesting participants and I made new friends! I’m already planning my next Road Scholar trip!

Great way to experience the culture and life of Cuba, with well informed guides, great lectures and high quality arts. A friendly and interesting place to visit!

Bernice

This trip far exceeded my expectations! We were able to see the beauty of Cuba and her people in ways that could only be appreciated by direct contact with the people in their actual work/play spaces.

This trip exceeded expectations. The cost is much less than comparable programs. The people to people interactions and cultural experiences were amazing and very memorable-much better than routine sightseeing. I hadn't really been looking forward to those so was pleasantly surprised. The lectures likewise were really high quality. Cuba is great for a week. This was our first Road Scholar trip but we plan to take more.

Cuba was amazing, unfortunately our trip organizers were well organized, well informed or enthusiastic.

We feel that we acquired an understanding of Cuba past, present and future which would not have been possible without the rich tapestry of educational and experiential opportunities woven into this program by Road Scholar.

I’m not a traveler but Cuba intrigues me and this trip gave me a wonderful introduction to an amazing place. I hope I am a better and more understanding person because of this experience. I have great confidence that Road Scholar will take good care of me on my journey, see that I am exposed to interesting new ideas and return me safely.

Our trip -Cuba Today:People and Society: Havana to Cienfuegos was one of the best trips we have taken. Our lodgings were excellent, our tour leaders were amazing, and the country people were extremely friendly. We would certainly look into another Road Schlolar trip in the near future. J W Vermont

We were surprised and delighted by our amazing experience traveling through Cuba with Road Scholar. The education we received gave us a much better understanding of the history we read before the trip. Even though we were only there for 7 days, I feel we saw a great deal of the country seeing city and countryside, large cities and small. Our guide was wonderful and greatly enhanced our trip. We met so many different types of Cubans, old and young, musicians, artists, workers and entrepreneurs. It was a wonderful experience.
