Those that have been following our blog know that we recommend Alexander & Roberts for travelers who want the convenience of an escort but with the intimacy of a small group. A&R, previously known as General Tours, specializes in small group travel of no more than 15 guests at a time. This intimate approach is a fantastic way to explore Cuba, a country that’s just beginning to open up to American visitors.
Join A&R on their roundtrip cruise from Miami to Cuba. The journey will take you into the heart of Old Havana, where you’ll partake in delicious food, handsome colonial architecture, and rich musical heritage. History buffs will also delight in the beautiful colonial houses of Cienfuegos. Outdoorsy types will love the Vinales Valley, where you’ll learn traditional techniques of growing and harvesting tobacco, and the Alejandro de Humboldt National Park with its diverse and thriving ecosystem. And yes! You will also visit the Hotel Ambos Mundos in Havana, where Hemingway famously wrote “For Whom the Bell Tolls.”
