Wendy Wu Tours are the UK's leading tour operator to China and have been sending travellers on award-winning tours for over two decades. With offices in Xian, Shanghai, Beijing and across Asia, we are the true Asia experts whilst our large team of travel professionals in offices in the UK, Australia and the US have the expertise to design the perfect itinerary for your holiday. Every year we send a team to Asia to trial our tours to ensure that they remain the very best. So you get to enjoy the holiday of a lifetime complete with a group of likeminded fellow travellers; potential friends for life.
One of the great things about travelling in a group is that you get to learn about an exciting new culture. Our National Escorts and local guides will introduce you to customs, ancient history and the local way of life, providing their own cultural insights and experiences to help you absorb more. Your fellow travellers, often well-travelled and worldly themselves, can also help to broaden your knowledge and understanding as you share these adventures together. A Wendy Wu Tours group is an international experience in its own right; you’ll be joined by broadminded people from Australia, New Zealand, and the USA, giving you the opportunity to make worldwide friends for life.
Whilst on a Wendy Wu group tour, you are never on your own. Our National Escorts, handpicked and trained by us, accompany you throughout, even as you travel by plane, train or on a cruise, during your sightseeing and at every meal. They stay in the same hotel as you, so whilst they look after you during the day, they will also be on call even after you’ve said good night. They are there for you 24 hours a day, bending over backwards to make your holiday the very best it can be, so it’s not a surprise to see that our tour reviews are full of praise for them. You will also be joined by one of our local guides, who will show you their home town whilst imparting their abundant knowledge.
With offices in the UK, Australia and the USA, and in Xian, Shanghai, Beijing and throughout Asia we are constantly working to improve our itineraries, discovering new experiences and adding in hidden gems. We also continuously send our people out to Asia to test every tour to ensure that they offer the very best experience. After 20 years of doing just that, we’ve got very good at it!
With a Wendy Wu tour, there are no hidden costs. At all. Even your visa is included in the tour price, saving you £200 per person. All of your meals are included; we’ll let you know how much the tipping will be; a National Escort and local guides are included; all entrance fees and transportation is included; your international flights, cruises and trains are included; we’ve even included shows so you can sample the fun, urban social life of your destination. So there is no need to dip into your pocket, unless it is for those essential souvenirs of course.
From the moment you book your holiday to the moment you arrive home, full of memories, Wendy Wu Tours will take care of your needs, every step of the way. Before you travel we’ll sort out your visa, so you don’t have to spend hours in the queue at the embassy, and we’ll calculate the tour tipping amount for you. On tour, all your meals are included, so you don’t need to worry about what you are ordering and how to order it. All you need to do it sit back and get excited about your great adventure.
The teams in our offices in Xian, Beijing, Shanghai, and across Asia as a whole, work hard to give you the most authentic local experiences. Your local guides will show you their home town and introduce you to the local scene – you may visit a local family, spend time in a local school, practice Tai Chi at dawn in a local park, or even meet the guide’s own family. What better way to learn and experience your destination’s local life and culture?
At Wendy Wu Tours we don’t compromise on your comfort. Enjoy a seat-and-a-half to yourself on coach journeys, and stay in hotels we’ve handpicked for you.
