The Trump administration’s ban on all U.S. airline service to ANY destination in Cuba except Havana (effective January 2020) will NOT affect this trip. We will fly to Santiago de Cuba on Canada’s AirTransat (or alternative) one-way, returning to Miami from Havana one-way
Join Christopher and experience Cuba a lo cubano (like a local)… visit fascinating off-the-beaten-track places and meet memorable Cubans (from renowned artists to humble yet proud farmers)… learn to photograph Cuba like a pro… and provide much-needed support to the Cuban people as we stay in private B&Bs, dine at paladares (private restaurants), and contribute to community projects, schools, and individuals in need.
No-one can show you Cuba like Chris! And no-one can offer the same insight into its vastly complex and spellbinding history, politics, and culture. Plus, you get to photograph Cuba through the eyes of a National Geographic photographer as Chris tutors you on the art of seeing, composition, and use of light.
Your reward? A vastly enriching cultural experience as we drive the island end-to-end in a spacious Mercedes E200, with stops at Cuba’s most enchanting colonial cities and fascinating historic, natural and cultural sites to photograph and meet Chris’ vast Rolodex of endearing acquaintances.

“Chris, what can I say, the trip was spectacular. We all thoroughly enjoyed your company.”
MICHAEL SMERCONISH, CNN TV anchor (private “people-to-people” exchange trip, August 2016)
“Just wanted to say a final huge thank you for leading us on such an amazing week of travel. I’m not hyperbolizing when I say that it was one of the most fulfilling experiences in recent memory and there’s no question it had everything to do with your guidance.”
JASON WIRE (private “people-to-people exchange”, August 2016)
“We recently returned from Cuba and the most incredible trip of our lives. Words could never express what our time there meant to all of us… most notably, the wonderful experiences we had with the people we met along the way. I am so thankful to you… We had the exact experience we were looking for.”
KATHY PARSONS (private “people-to-people” exchange trip, October 2016)
