MBA/MPA Candidate at Stanford GSB and Harvard Kennedy School

"We partnered with CET to plan an educational trek for Harvard Kennedy School students and several cultural trips for Stanford Business School students. They offer the highest quality network across political and business communities in Cuba. As a Cuban American, I wanted a rich, diverse experience -- and CET delivered."

“Having travelled to Cuba dozens of times since 1973 for academic research, I was very familiar with the challenges involved. Cuba Educational Travel eliminates most of the hurdles for academic, cultural and scientific exchanges and is particularly astute in designing tailor-made programs to accommodate a wide variety of interests.  CET combines professionalism with know-how.”

This year, we chose to have our meeting in Havana Cuba, jointly with the Cuban Urologic Association. This year’s meeting in Cuba was an unforgettable experience and could not have been successful without the onsite assistance of CET...If you decide to travel to Cuba, the CET/Havana Strategies team has my enthusiastic endorsement. They were somehow able provide everything we needed, from dinner receptions for our group, tours of Havana and the countryside, to a fashion show for our spouses and what will prove to be your favorite cigar roller. Their deep knowledge and love for Cuba will enrich your trip and make it unforgettable."

"Cuba Educational Travel provides me with reliable counsel, proven advice and amazing general support. They know Cuba in and out, from safety to genuine grassroots experiences. I trust their guidance and expertise more than any other group involved in Cuba travel."

“I want to thank Cuba Educational Travel (CET) and all personnel working with them. CET has organized three trips to take dozens of my American students to Cuba. The organization is very professional and arranged our visits in magic and efficient ways. All programs and activities that they put together satisfied all travelers. Our school is already planning two more trips for the near future. Our provider, without doubts or hesitation, will be Cuba Educational Travel. Thanks CET for your work building bridges of love between the people of Cuba and the United States.”

Carlos Lazo

Teacher, Advocate of US-Cuba Relations

“I want to thank the CET team for making this a very memorable event for all our guests. The personal attention from arrival, all the activities, meals, discussions and the ultimate departure was flawlessly executed and greatly appreciated by all. Many of our customers commented on how their perception of Cuba was vastly different than what they actually experienced in Cuba.  They enjoyed the people, culture, architecture, history and overall vibe of the country - a very pleasant surprise. Many may also return with their families.”
