About this trip

Cuba is a country steeped in mystery. Connect with the warm Cuban people while enjoying a unique mix of vibrant music, eclectic art, and 1950s cars. Delve into the complexities of Afro Cuban customs and thoughts. Our Journey of Purpose & Discovery to Cuba draws people closer together but does not whitewash the challenges that the Cuban people face.  Experience the real Cuba, filled with culture, creativity, art and loving people. Explore the reality of Cuban living standards, which are often difficult and impoverished. Our journey to Cuba will provide you with a host of experiences that will allow you to truly connect with the Cuban people in their local communities going about their every day lives.  It will also will afford you an opportunity to look past politics and into the heart and soul of a culture and its reality. Come back with an appreciation for Cuba’s music, arts, and culinary cultures after exploring local museums; taking part in a cooking class, salsa class, and community block party; and visiting the world’s largest ballet school, Hemingway’s residence and much more! Experiencing these elements first-hand will change your understanding of the roles of those involved in creating a positive social structure and give a broader perspective on this nation.

Same as my review for Ireland.
By Beth D for Extension Iceland (Lori Greenwood's Group) on 13 May, 2022
I think we all had fun, some great experiences, wonderful scenery. Our tour guide, Mary, was the best. She was upbeat, had a lot of information, and patient. She took us to some wonderful, small venue, unique places. Connor, our bus driver, was totally the best driver. Mary and Connor were the craic! Completely plugged into us. I would recommend every one of the places and people we met. Thank you for a superb vacation!
By Annette T for Greenwood Journey of Purpose and Discovery Ireland on 11 May, 2022
Annette, thank you so much for your kind words! We are thrilled you enjoyed your Ireland and Iceland. We will pass along your compliments of Mary and Connor. It is so rewarding to read that you enjoyed all of the activities we collaboratively planned with Lori for you - we look forward to you joining Lori's next global adventure.

We had an amazing time in Ireland and Iceland. All of our guides/drivers were very knowledgeable and accommodating. The meals were amazing. The hotels were very nice. Nanda Journeys was there for us in any capacity that we needed. If we had questions, concerns or even some minor changes, they responded promptly and effectively. Thank you to our Group Leader Lori for making each day an unforgettable experience.

This trip gave us a wide variety of experiences that included hands on activities, meeting locals, learning culture and history, as well as taking in all the beauty. I highly recommend this trip to anyone and everyone. You can accommodate as needed for all activity levels. This was a trip of a life time and very well organized!!
By Lori G for Greenwood Journey of Purpose and Discovery Ireland on 10 May, 2022
Lori, it was our great honor and privilege to design this program for you and your guests. Collaborating alongside such passionate, creative and dedicated people who love to explore the world in an immersive way is a Nanda dream! Thank you for your kind words, your leadership and your friendship. We are so excited to already be working on your 2023, 2024 and 2025 ideas!! Nicola

The trip was planned with the interests of all travelers in mind. Lori blends both tourist attractions with local flair and culture when putting together an itinerary. There was a great blend of scheduled excursions and free time built into the trip. I do wonder if the overall price of the trips could decrease if the meals that are provided weren't all 3 course meals? Or perhaps that wouldn't make a difference. I look forward to taking many more trips with Lori as the chief!!
By Beth D for Greenwood Journey of Purpose and Discovery Ireland on 10 May, 2022
Beth, thank you so much for your kind words. Lori is indeed an amazing chief and we are so fortunate to have her friendship, leadership and support. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your journey across the Emerald Isle! We look forward to your next adventure with Lori. In the meantime, take care and keep in touch. Nicola
