china & tibet Tours with Dao of Well Being     About Dao of Well Being Tours 

Our itineraries are planned with attention to EVERY detail, including the time, space and freedom to REALLY experience some of the most spectacular sites in the world at a deep and meaningful level.

We LISTEN to what you want and and discuss details of the trip with you, before you register, so you sure you are signing up for the trip that is just right for you.

We personally lead each tour; ensuring personalized care and a friendly relaxed atmosphere.

Our tour groups are intentionally limited in size to optimize the best group dynamics and experience for our tour members. Our tours are decidedly unlimited in scope.

We have worked closely with our friends and colleagues in China and Tibet for over 12 years. Many of our guides are just like family. Together we ensure that every part of our journey and your experience unfolds seamlessly.

● Our years of experience leading trips to China and a over a decade spent  compiling international resources enable us to provide you with the exceptional quality of program, itinerary, study, accommodations and fine cuisine that we wished for in our earlier experiences of China.

An exceptional Qigong and Tai Chi program is a feature of our trips. We include early morning Qigong and Tai Chi and also offer a program of stress reduction, the Daoist Healing Arts and subtle energy cultivation. This program is included in the tour. Of course, participation is entirely optional.
