Trip scheduled for May 2015
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Nov. 11, 2014) — The second annual Cultural Awareness Tour is offering Kentuckians the opportunity to see Cuba.
The trip, which leaves on May 19, 2015, is a partnership between Greater Louisville Inc. and travel company Chamber Explorations that allows U.S. citizens to visit Cuba legally via a license granted by the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control.
The all‐inclusive program consists of round trip airfare from Miami, six nights of first‐class hotel accommodations, 13 meals, daily touring, including Ernest Hemingway’s farm, an old Havana walking tour and a rum factory tour, cultural connections with local residents, a professional Cuban bilingual guide and transportation by deluxe air‐conditioned motor coach, among its amenities.
“The experience is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Sydney Doctor, event coordinator with Greater Louisville. “Due to the embargo, Cuba has been truly time-capsuled and will offer travelers rare insights into a unique culture and economic climate.”
Those interested in the trip can learn more about during informational sessions on Jan. 13, 2015 and Feb. 19, 2015 at Greater Louisville Inc., or visit www.greaterlouisville.com/cuba to see the detailed itinerary and travel plans.
Cost is $3,599 per person. Registration and travel booking is required by March 5, 2015.
