Single City Tours

At Always and Forever Adoption Homeland Tours, we understand the flexibility that you may desire for a trip of a lifetime to the land of your child’s birth. For those of you who wish to extend your stay in China or to create a custom itinerary yourself, we offer this Single City Tours program with short, individualized packages. These packages provide you the optional private single-city tours to a number of destinations. We continue to add other cities to this program according to demand. Please check back often for new Independent Travel tour packages we have developed.

These private tours do not have pre-set departure dates. They can be booked all year round. The tour price that are quoted below includes sightseeing (with admission fees included) to major attractions in each city, an English-speaking guide, a private driver and car, hotel accommodations, roundtrip transfer between hotel and airport (or train station), daily breakfast in the hotel, and some lunches and dinners as specified. The quote does not include your inbound and outbound airfare or train fare. The quote is per person, based on at least two adult participants sharing a hotel room. Children under the age of 12 who share a room (using a roll-away bed) with two adults get a 20% discount from the adult rate.

Each tour package requires the participation of at least two people. The fee will be lower if you can gather six or more adult participants to go with you. Please contact us for price adjustments pertaining to these situations. With an additional fee, each tour package also has some optional activities for you to add according to your interest.If none of these itineraries meets your specific needs, we would be happy to customize a private tour for you!
