India Heritage Tour

At Dillon, we absolutely encourage every adoptive family to take their children back to their land of birth at least once.


When families adopt internationally, they are becoming an international family, so a birthland tour should be a family affair and a very natural and normal event.


As your children grow, they will encounter social expectations that they have visited their birth country and know some of its language, and your child will experience great pride and satisfaction from those accomplishments.

Visit India Tour Includes

  • Small travel group (10–30 persons)

  • Tour staff with adoption experience and sensitivity

  • Airport transfers and in-country (India) flights

  • Luxury or deluxe accommodations (double occupancy)

  • Transportation during scheduled activities

  • Most meals

  • Admission fees to scheduled events

  • Professional, English-speaking guides

  • Adoption counseling support
