China Heritage Tour

At Dillon, we absolutely encourage every adoptive family to take their children back to their land of birth at least once.  On our China tour families will get to experience not just the Chinese culture but also have some time with other adoptive families.
We focus on small travel groups, so that each tour can be geared towards what each traveling families desires.  With less people in the group we are able to see more and do more than larger travel groups are in the time frame the group is in China.  Allowing the adoption professional travel on each tour to give all participant the support and focus they need.  We want you to focus on your family, so we make sure that each tour is escorted with a person to make sure things run smoothly.
