The Adventure to Havana has been created with the intention of getting a great bunch of people together to enjoy a fantastic week in sunny Havana this January. The week will be about relaxing, enjoying the culture, music, architecture, drinks and cigars! There is a daily itinerary but everything is optional and flexible. The Guide, Andrew Bray, has been to Havana over 40 times and has been leading groups in Havana since 2009.
