It's not as easy as you may think to volunteer at orphanages in China as stricter policies for NGO's are enforced. But we are maintaining our Teens' Service Tour and continuing to offer a service experience, cultural exchange and sightseeing for our amazing teens.
Welcome to the Red Thread Tours & Services website! If you are looking for information about our heritage tours, our next online information meeting will be on Saturday, Oct. 28 at 10:00am Central Time. Contact email@example.com for instructions on joining us from your computer.
Our next heritage tour is Dec. 16 - 31, 2017. This is a great time of year to travel - much more comfortable temperatures and no crowds! There is plenty of space available but planning is underway. Contact us ASAP to get in on this one.
And finally, a nice article written by Maren Longbella for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. She writes about her family's heritage tour this past July: "For West St. Paul girls and their family, a homecoming welcome in China"
As of 2015 you now have the option of obtaining a 10 year visa. So if you plan to return again to China this may be a good option for you
We are often asked if we have experience with a particular orphanage, and more often than not the answer is yes! So I thought it would be nice to list the orphanages that we have visited with past families. However, once I started down this road, I soon found out that the list was 85 orphanages long! Whew! I guess I won't list them all here, but rest assured, we have most likely been to your child's orphanage.
If you are reading this, you may be wondering what happened to our older blog postings. In Late 2017 we decided to update our website which required shifting to a new format. We had to abandon all our old blog posts and start afresh. I managed to move a few over, but most were quite outdated, so not really necessary for our new website.
Thank you for checking and if you would like to be kept updated on anything new with RTTS, please contact us and we will add you to our mailing list.
