Travel to Cuba with Global Exchange Reality Tours!

Global Exchange has worked for more than two-decades to end the embargo and travel ban. This month we celebrated one year of having restored diplomatic relations with Cuba, but there is still more work to be done. One of the core ways we’ve built solidarity in this movement is by building people-to-people ties through our Cuba Reality Tours program. 

Join Global Exchange to explore history, culture and beauty as we offer unparalleled access to the people and institutions that make the island tick, from political leaders and scientists to musicians and dancers. Whether you’ve never been or this is a return trip, now is the time to explore what this intriguing island has to offer. 

Sign up for one of Global Exchange Cuba Reality Tours today.
