April 10, 2018 – A RARE LOOK AT NORTH KOREA TO CUBA with David Guttenfelder
In 2011, David Guttenfelder made history when he helped the Associated Press open a bureau in North Korea—the first-ever Western news agency in the politically isolated country. For the first time in North Korean history, images of daily life there were sent to the world, while Guttenfelder himself acted as an unofficial ambassador. In 2016, he broke through another wall when he boarded the first cruise ship in decades to travel from the United States to Cuba, and returned to the island to cover Fidel Castro’s four-day funeral procession.
Packages start at $489 and must be booked 30 days prior to the show. All packages include: one-night accommodation, dinner for two, breakfast for two, overnight parking and two “best available” tickets. Alcohol and gratuity is not included in package price.
