During your six nights in Cuba, you will be staying at a B&B or the Hotel Sevilla, a luxury hotel situated in the heart of Havana. The hotel, which opened in 1908 and has played host to everyone from Al Capone to Enrique Caruso, is built in the Moorish style, featuring beautiful tiled walls and intricately carved ceilings.

Travel management in Cuba
Our two week trip was a great experience. The staff was impeccable with every aspect of the journey, from arrival in Miami for the charter flight to the amazing restaurants, walking tours and music excursions. To coordinate over 150 travelers for a premium tour would have been impossible without their wealth of knowledge and attention to detail. For myself, the band, and many of our guests, the trip was one of the best experiences of our lives!
