NOTE: Travel to Cuba from the U.S. is not inexpensive but a review of competing programs shows our tours to be in-depth, very attentive to interaction with Cubans and a good value.
Please let both Scott Schwar (sschwar@comcast.net) and Lisa Greyhill (lisa@adventure-travelers.com) Committee on Illinois partners know if you are planning to participate or if you have questions.
