Breaking cultural barriers with Grand Circle Foundation's latest Cuba tour

Posted: 22-Oct-15 10:19

Grand Circle Foundation, a charity that obtains funds from organising unique travel experiences to various destinations around the world that face challenging circumstances has recently added a new tour to its portfolio - Cuba: A Bridge Between Cultures. The 12-day tour takes travellers to three of Cuba's most iconic cities with the finest and richest examples of colonial heritage - Havana, Trinidad and Cienfuegos. The aim is to build a cultural bridge between Cubans and Americans in way that can only be possible through People-to-People cultural exchange.

Breaking cultural barriers with Grand Circle Foundation's latest Cuba tour

With a slogan that reads “Be a part of history on an unforgettable journey”, the Grand Circle Foundation has recently unveiled its newest of tours, this time taking travellers to see Cuba and truly experience it inside out, through numerous opportunities for interactions with the locals as well as the visiting of several locations to make for a well-rounded perspective of the real Cuba of today.

The new 12-day Cuba: A Bridge Between Cultures tour will be taking travellers on a journey through Cuba’s most history-rich and culturally-enriching city: Havana, Trinidad and Cienfuegos. Five nights of the tour will be spent in Cuba’s capital (made up of three in Old Havana and two in the more modern and happening downtown neighbourhood of Vedado) while travellers will have two days to explore the seaside town of Ceinfuegos and three more to fully embrace the colonial gem that Trinidad is.

The main focus points of the journey will be on providing plenty of opportunities for interaction with locals and offer a real and raw insight into the ordinary lives of average Cuban people. As part of the tour they will be able to exchange words with local artists, craftsmen and budding entrepreneurs venturing in Cuba’s new private market scene. Open sessions will be held for the exchanges of ideas between tour participants and locals.

The ultimate goal of this upclose people-to-people encounter is to keep building on the foundations laid out by President Obama after he eased legislation on travel to Cuba and encouraged Americans to help the Cuban people by getting close to them and removing the ideological barriers that separate them through an approach of engagement and mutual understanding.

The programme, which is available at a price of US$3,995 per person (and limited to no more than 20 persons in a group) includes all accommodation and travel expenses in Cuba but does not include the flights to Cuba from the U.S. which the traveller must book on their own. The tour meets in Miami for an overnight stay before all flying together to Havana the following day.
