World's oldest tour operator starts offering Cuba holidays

More and more travel operators are entering the Cuban market now that tourism on the island is becoming increasingly prevalent, and now the world's oldest tour operator is looking to offer their own packages to Cuba.

Cox and Kings, which was established more than 250 years ago in 1758, has developed its own range of Cuban trips based around the cultural tourism that the US government has allowed; no other tourism is yet to have its embargo lifted.

The ability to mix with the local people and sample the culture of this incredibly vibrant island is something that appeals to huge numbers of tourists across the globe, and Cox and Kings' cultural packages will enable visitors to do just that. This travel operator is a natural at delivering the "people-to-people" platform that the US government demands from its United States-Cuba tourism; and they have been arranging such trips for more than two centuries.

It is the personality of the team at Cox and Kings that helps set the tone for their cultural exchange trips. Of course, they offer the traditional sightseeing opportunities so that visitors can take in the stunning architecture and beautiful landscapes that Cuba has to offer, but also a bounty of chances to enjoy the local culture; whether that's the cuisine, the music, the dancing or those world-famous Havana cigars.

To keep things social, personal and special, Cox and Kings has determined that its group tours will consist of no more than 24 guests. On private tours, travellers will have the opportunity to make their own choices as to the activities and excursions that they wish to enjoy.

Guests will follow the trail of the great Ernest Hemingway and take a trip to his house, which is preserved in its final state still in Havana, with a trip to a traditional Havanan cigar factory to witness first-hand how these are produced. Trips to organic farms, an architectural tour of the old Havana and a performance at the Cuban Institute of Music are the icing on the cake.
