What our Travelers Have Said

It was everything I'd hoped for - the incredible local color, my fellow travelers and of course Christoph and Giuliana who were friends as much as guides. It really was a one-of-a-kind experience. Merlin H., Italy 2012 Participant

 

These moments with local people turned out to truly be a cultural exchange, and a real person-to-person educational experience. More than just being a tourist, visiting the sights and sitting on the beach, this trip opened our collective eyes to the issues facing the Cuban people, and how the US embargo has affected their everyday lives. Judy K., Cuba 2015 Participant

All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.
