Superb! I am deeply grateful for what the Summer Tour has provided for the girls. They will take away wonderful memories, a deeper pride in their heritage, and a greater sense of whom they are. We appreciate the financial help as well for we could never all done this on our own.

I strongly recommend this trip.... My daughter Mayalin
and I were very well-cared for, honored by many, and we gained a bit more of an insider's perspective of China through our connection with Chinese officials and participation in exchange activities at schools and with Chinese families. The girls and parents formed great bonds.
