Chen Lizra’s book, My Seductive Cuba, established her as non-Cuban with a special understanding of all things Cuban, especially the people. Her readers appreciated her candid and empathetic take on Cuban life which led Chen to take a limited number of her fans with her on each unique and intimate journey.
In her TED talk, where she spoke about the Power of Seduction in our Everyday Lives, she seduced us into the Cuban magic. Her TED talk got over half a million views in 7 months.
On her tours – Chen is planning five or six each year – the group gets to jump right into the Cuban highlights visiting Havana in depth as well as exploring Trinidad, Santa Clara and Vinales. Chen will take her guests on the kinds of walking tours she describes in her book, to cigar factories, Hemingway hot spots, driving around in old American cars from the 50s, and a lot of out of the way places.
Touring Cuba is fascinating under any circumstances, but with the help of someone who knows the landscape first hand and can interpret it from the perspective of a visiting traveler, it’s even better. Chen knows many famous Cubans in the arts scene – film and theatre directors, dancers, salsa bands etc. And you can meet them too. Chen’s an accomplished dancer, so for those of you with a particular interest in dance, you can include 3 days/3 hours of dance classes, or alternately Chen will set you up to pursue a different passion. There are many ways to personalize the tour, which no one else does. And not like many tours, you are not stuck with fixed dates for your flight, your tour will start in Havana, so you can stay after the tour is over, if you’d like.
The tour costs US$1800 per person including accommodations, lunch and breakfasts, a/c transportation by private van for trips outside the city, and lots of extra activities. Not bad!
