Korea Heritage Tour II

At Dillon, we absolutely encourage every adoptee to go back to their land of birth at least once. For South Korea, we offer both a tour for adult adoptees and two tour for families. Adult adoptees and their families are welcome on either tour.  Each tour has it own unique schedule, that focuses on different areas of Korea and different places of interest.


This tour was created for either first time birth land tour families or for those families who have already traveled with Dillon but would like to return to Korea for a second trip.  Highlighting a different area of Korea than the first birthland tour, this tour focuses on more of Korea’s modern history.  The group will be able to experience the mountains, beach and city life all in one tour.
