China Heritage Tour

Open to all Chinese adoptees and their families!

Travel to China with Holt!

Holt’s China Heritage Tour offers adoptees and their families the opportunity to experience the rich culture, customs and history of this ancient land, traveling from big cities to rural villages. Over 12 days, participants will visit famous sites such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and the Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, and enjoy a rare glimpse into China’s countryside, by visiting farming villages and taking a bamboo-raft trip down the Yulong River. Families also have the chance to participate in hands-on cooking classes and learn to make traditional Chinese dumplings and other dishes.

Whenever possible, adoptees have the opportunity to visit their adoption cities, former orphanages and/or sites significant to their adoption story. They may also meet the people who touched their early lives before they joined their adoptive families in the U.S. The China tour is open to families adopted from any province and through any agency.
