This trip cast the spotlight on Cuba's interior and one of its provincial capitals – Holguin. You'll board a restored steam train for a scenic ride through the countryside, explore the ‘City of Parks' – Holguin – and visit a cigar factory followed by lunch on the top of the Hill of the Cross. There's even a cigar and rum pairing to round it all off.
After driving through the countryside, you'll swap wheels for a restored steam train from where it's all aboard for a short ride and an insight into daily life. Then head into the centre of Holguin, which offers up leafy gardens, 18th century townhouses and statues to local heroes. You'll also visit a cigar factory to see how the workers hand roll Cuba's famous cigars with a few effortless flicks of their wrists.
Next will be lunch, which is served with view over the city on top of the Hill of the Cross. And to add a touch more Cuban to your day, there'll be a rum and cigar pairing at the Cigar Lounge in Hotel Playa Costa Verde.
