This tour complies with the new U.S. Treasury Department guidelines published on June 06, 2019

Dear Travelers,

Be a part of history as the city of Havana celebrates it's 500th anniversary on November 16, 2019. Al Nodal and I have joined forces once again to curate an incredible tour for this once in a lifetime celebration. We are thrilled to invite our friends to join us on a four day journey to this hustling, bustling city.

Havana has always been vibrant with music, art, and culture. In anticipation of the 500th anniversary, the City implemented various restoration projects to revive and elevate Havana. We will celebrate vintage signage and participate in the Rex Duplex Havana 500 project to restore and reinvigorate Blvd San Rafael with neon and witness the outcome of a community coming together to bring light and life back to Havana.

Discover Cuba’s fascinating past and present in the company of fellow vintage sign and neon lovers. Experience the best of Cuban cuisine, art, music, architecture, and dance through our carefully curated insider activities. Get to know Cuban thought leaders and every day people during a moment of great change. It will be a trip for us to remember forever and we hope that you will be part of it.

With every good wish,

Josh Silber
