#TravelTuesday The Journey to Your Roots

Families were able to discover the wonders of China and learn about the history and beauty of their child’s homeland for the past week and a half. Ben’s dad shares their once of a life-time experience:

“It started out like most any other day, yet it was not an ordinary day. On this day Ben would be going back to his roots. Much like the day when we first went to China to expand our family with the addition of Ben, we would board a flight with bags in hand heading out on somewhat of an unknown experience, and yet this time it was to experience through Ben’s eyes the country he was born in, and the people whom he shares a heritage.

To say Ben was excited would be like calling the Great Wall a pile of bricks. Even though he had spent time learning about what he was going to see, it could never have had truly prepared him for what adventures and experiences he has now lived.

The Heritage Tour is an amazingly well organized and thought our experience of a life-time as well as it is a fun-packed cultural taste that you could never get any other way. Every second of every day is so well planned, not only for learning and experiencing the rich and long heritage of the Chinese people, but it also has melded in just the right amount of time for the families, if you so desire, to adventure out and enjoy on your own in a safe way. What makes all this go so seamlessly is the fact that the Heritage Tours gives you truly a local taste of each city that you are in, but having someone from that city and culture be your local guide for each new location. What this brings is a true-life experience and insight that you could never receive any other way.

China has a vast history that could of course never be completely experienced in one tour, yet the Heritage Tour has taken us on a journey of a life-time that is so deep in culture and historical experiences from the Great Wall of China, to the amazing vastness of the Terra-Cotta Warrior museum, and from the playful warmth of the mountain side Panda reserve in Chengdu, to the majestic and beauty of the mountains of the Lijiang river boat cruise.

This trip was not only a journey of a life time, it was a journey through a life time of the History of China that Ben will cherish forever.”
