No one knows Asia like we do
It’s true, we do know Asia very well – that’s why we are known as the UK’s specialist operator for Asia! Many of our staff have travelled extensively throughout China, Southeast Asia, India, Japan and beyond, and are all passionate about Asia as a destination. We also work closely with our in-destination offices, to keep our knowledge as fresh and ‘local’ as possible. Just ask for more detailed information on our itineraries, or we can help you make a holiday that is more personal to you.
Wendy Wu Tours has been blazing trails through Asia for nearly 20 years. With our extensive experience and local expertise, we can not only take you to lesser visited but equally fascinating places, but give you those authentically Asian experiences. Be it learning a local craft, practicing an old tradition, dining on local flavours or meeting local families in their community, with Wendy Wu Tours you have the chance to really get under the skin of a country and its culture, to get to see a lifestyle so different to our own.
Industry-Leading National Escorts
Our National Escorts are the best, end of. A bold statement indeed, but there are many who have travelled with us who would very strongly agree, judging from their reviews! All of our group tours are accompanied from beginning to end by one of these dedicated, knowledgeable superstars, who are joined by a local guide in each city or location, for that more specific expertise. Our experienced teams in Asia ensure that Wendy Wu Tours has a reliable presence on which you can always depend.
We Love Solo Travellers
Our group tours offer a wonderful opportunity to share cultural experiences and breathtaking sights with like-minded travellers, especially for those travelling solo. We get plenty of great feedback from these travellers about the friendly and sociable atmosphere of our groups! Even better, if you are a solo traveller who is willing to share a room, you won’t have to pay the single supplement.
Wendy Wu Tours has been taking people to Asia for some long, that our local know how is second to none. That means we also know the best places to stay, and have been able to develop excellent relationships with our hotel partners, so our groups are always prioritised and well looked after. Hotels are also inspected regularly to ensure that they reach our high standards of cleanliness, safety and comfort. Each hotel we use is handpicked for the destination, so where you stay can range from a start business hotel in one city to a family run guesthouse in a smaller town. Wherever you stay, you will have a peaceful and comfortable night’s sleep in preparation for the next day’s adventures.
Unrivalled Airline Choice
We have access to airfares from all the leading airlines, giving you the ultimate choice of flights which are convenient and offer stopovers and upgrades.
Travel in Comfort
The transport choices we’ve made for each tour combine convenience and comfort with an authentic travel experience. We also have a ‘seat-an-a-half-policy’ on coaches, so you can sit in comfort as you watch the world go by. Other types of transport we use include internal flights, trains, boats and 4WD vehicles.
Tipping Made Easy
Tipping is one of those uncomfortable things that none of us like to think about – we’ve handled it so you don’t have to. We’ll tell you the total tipping amount for the whole tour, you hand it over to the National Escort on arrival, who then distributes it throughout the trip. Simple! Tipping is not included on Private Tours or stopovers, but we will suggest appropriate amounts.
Food is one of the many windows into a country’s culture and heritage. We make sure that the meals that are included on our tours give you a genuine taste of the region whilst at the same time the food you are served is safe, fresh, features minimal spice and includes plenty of vegetables. Breakfast is a combination of local and western foods, usually served buffet style at your hotel. Lunches and dinners consist of traditional cuisine and are served at reputable local restaurants. Most tours will include at least one feature dish of the destination – Peking duck in Beijing, laap in Laos, sushi in Japan and thali in India.
