Abercrombie & Kent Adds New "Private People-to People-Journey" to Cuba

Abercrombie & Kent has added a new private people-to-people tour to its travel itineraries to Cuba.

The tour company will offer the “Signature Cuba: A Private People to People Journey” package to individuals and small private groups who are looking to visit Cuba under the U.S. Department of Commerce’s licenced categories.

The seven-night programme will include a visit to a privately-owned restaurant and a chat with its owner; a walk around a neighbourhood with painter and ceramicist José Fuster; private salsa lessons; tours of the Museo de Artes Decorativas which is located in the former residence of Countess of Revilla de Camargo; a visit to Las Terrazas eco-community - a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve; a tour of the Muraleando Neighbourhood Community Project; and encounters with local Cubans.

The private programme costs $10,795 per person, not including flights. The price drops per person in small groups: with four guests, the price will be $8,295 and with six, it is $6,995.

Abercrombie & Kent has headquarters in the historic Hotel Saratoga in Havana, the capital of Cuba, and it has been providing people to people programmes to Cuba since 2013. The group currently has two Cuba programmes for American travellers: a 13-day “Cuba Across the Island” tour with 20 departures taking place between 7th October, 2015 and 7th December, 2016, and the “Cuba People-to-People” tour with 25 departures starting from 6th October, 2015, and 13th December, 2016.

U.S President Barack Obama recently renewed diplomatic relations between the U.S and Cuba after a 50-year-long rift, which has led to further travel restrictions being eased for American residents.

General tourism has not yet been approved as a reason to visit the Caribbean island, but Americans can visit for educational, religious, academic and cultural and family purposes across 12 categories, without having to obtain a licence.

Cuba is a nation in the Caribbean Sea that boasts a myriad of beautiful landscapes and sites for holidaymakers to enjoy, such as miles of pristine beaches, the second largest coral reef in the world, historic towns and cities, ancient ruins, thriving national parks, breathtaking natural scenery, and a tropical climate.
