Frozen in time for 59 years, Cuba is a small but resilient multi-ethnic country with a storied past. It's complex history is reflected in a vibrant blend of gracious people, stunning architecture, classic automobiles, and cultural arts. Cuba remains an unspoiled treasure but the winds of change are moving swiftly across this tropical island.

Our Classic Cuba adventure is an immersive cultural experience that requires extensive time exploring on foot rather than sight-seeing by bus. Cuba travel expert and award-winning photographer Scott Fishman has been to Cuba 18 times since March 2015. He will lead you away from the over-crowded tourist areas and into the nearby streets, surrounding neighborhoods, and rural farmlands where the locals carry-on with their daily lives. You will gain privileged access to people and places virtually unseen by tourists and therefore experience authentic Cuba.
