ABOUT THE COMPANY
Cuba Tours 4 U (The Committee on Illinois, LLC) specializes in Cuba – what makes us so distinctive is our vast experience and knowledge of Cuba and the travel business.
Although individuals can now sign for their own travel licenses, U.S. travel regulations still outline travel guidelines for each of the 12 categories of travel. We can work with you to navigate the existing U.S. regulations while delivering a customized tour meeting your interests. We don’t offer just one or two set cookie cutter tours. We can customize tours, within regulations, to meet your interests.
In recent years, we have brought groups of doctors, lawyers/judges, college students, women’s softball teams, university faculty, architects, bankers/businessmen, religious congregations, scholars/researchers and individuals seeking a meaningful cultural adventure.
A future goal in Cuba is to facilitate adventure travel while respecting and appreciating the undisturbed natural landscape (due to isolation and good ecological practices) including diving on pristine reefs, fishing overlooked lakes, hiking mountain trails, biking rural roads and appreciating the bountiful bird watching opportunities.
