The regulations for the policies proposed by President Trump have not been written yet, and once they go into effect they will in no way impact our group tours. Only individual travel will be affected.  Our trips are fully within the law, and follow the guidelines of people-to-people educational tours previously issued by the U.S. Treasury Department.  You are entirely secure in joining any of our trips.

What better way to bring in the 2018 New Year than in Havana, make this night unique, like none others…

Our exclusive people-to-people cultural exchanges focus on meeting the Cuban people, art, architecture, music and historic sites.

The Taller Experimental de Gráfica (Experimental Graphics Studio) was founded in 1962 by mural artist Orlando Suarez with the support of Che Guevara, who was the minister of industry at the time.

 While at the center you will see artworks produced there and have a conversation with the artists about their works and about life as an artist in Havana.

 The studio/workshop is thriving today as the most important graphic arts establishment in Cuba, preserving the old printmaking techniques and producing significant works of graphic art.  The artists/craftsmen use a variety of styles: original etchings, lithographs, woodcuts and collographs are all made at the Taller.

A journey that can change your life...
