With your vision and perseverance, in May 2004 I led a delegation of 16 artists, arts leaders and arts supporters from across Washington state on a 11-day cultural exchange and trade mission to China. The goal of our trip was to develop our knowledge of and appreciation for China’s cultural resources. With the generous and professional help of WTE, we were able to learn about China’s support for the arts and to begin to establish a network of contacts for supporting arts-related trade and exchanges.

  • I have long wanted to visit Cuba and this excursion was the perfect way to do it. Just sit back, relax, eat great food, see the beauty, art & historical sights !

  • Jitka Wong, with her cultural exchange tour company, WTE Inc., provides an exciting portal into challenging geographies. With Ms. Wong's help I have traveled to China in 2015 and to Cuba in 2017. Both trips were well planned and ran like clockwork. Ms. Wong is very proficient at arranging local guides and the logistics to keep the participants engaged with the culture and, most importantly, its people.

  • WTE puts together a program that is participant-focused and provides a wide range of experiences that I will never forget. The guides, accommodations, meals, sites and entire trip exceeded expectations. My deepest gratitude for all of the planning and careful attention to the details that made the trip so very special.

  • We had such a good time in Cuba! WTE did a great job putting it together, our only complaint was too action-packed & too much good food. I loved the pace, since it was all such wonderful experiences there was very little that could have been cut out. We had V.I.P entrees to so many arts organizations & met fascinating artists, not to mention seeing all of the beautiful colonial historic sites. Count me in for the next adventure...
