A singing adventure around Cuba with a like minded group of music lovers. 

Vocal Workshops and exchanges with local choirs is the main features of this tour.

 This singing tour packs into 2 weeks what we consider the most fascinating elements of this unique country. As well as visiting many of Cuba's more interesting and popular destinations, and singing everyday our focus is on contact with the Cuban people and their culture, in understanding the Cuban history and society, and having a lot of fun along the way. Accommodation is in guesthouses, which are Cuba's version of b&b accommodation. These are small privately owned businesses in Cuba typically run by a local family.  

An English speaking local Cuban tour guide accompanies the group throughout.
