Reality Tours was chosen by National Geographic as one of their 2010 Tours of a Lifetime! Please find us in the North America section for our Cuba program by either visiting their website or by picking up the May/June 2010 issue at your local news stand now.
On behalf of Reality Tours I’d like to extend our sincere gratitude to the hard working staff at National Geographic Traveler for choosing us. Reality Tours is honored that they decided to highlight our most popular destination! Did you know that we have over 22 years of organizing alternative travel to Cuba! Global Exchange’s very first Cuba Reality Tour, called “Cuba at a Crossroads,” was organized to ring in the New Year, 1989, in Havana. Ever since, Global Exchange has arranged travel to Cuba for close to 20,000 citizens to study every aspect of Cuban life: health care and education, politics and economics, art and culture, environmental protection and sustainable development.
Reality Tours has organized Cuba study tours, eco-adventures, bike tours, language immersion classes, dance and percussion workshops and customized tours for university and high school students, churches, foundations, choirs, dance groups, yogis, World Affairs Councils, professionals, enthusiasts of bird watching and narrow gauge railroads, and just ordinary US citizens eager to get to know their world. Our Cuba Reality Tours in 2010 are comprised of groups of professionals or groups with their own specific humanitarian or religious licenses. We cocreate their journeys with our hosts and friends in Cuba in accordance with our travel service provider’s license that permits us to send US citizens to Cuba legally. The thousands of alumni that have traveled with us to this wonderful island know that our journeys are highly regarded for their balance between serious study of Cuban society and the heartfelt human contact with Cubans they provide!
