Tour reviews

Wendy Wu Tours Review:

"The Glories of China was fantastic. We saw so much, all the interesting places you see and read about in books. It was excellent.

As far as the National Escort, he was fantastic, helpful, funny and always willing to help and please. He always made sure the group was happy and ok. Well done Gary, you made our tour even better, your knowledge was unbelievable. Also the services provided at each flight and airport transfers was excellent, it was all well organised, which puts less pressure on the traveller. So well done Wendy Wu Tours. I have no doubt in recommending a Wendy Wu tour to anyone.

Thank you Wendy Wu Tours and thank you Gary for making our holiday a happy and memorable one. Hope to do more Wendy Wu Tours trips in the future."

Wendy Wu Tours Review:

"This tour was an absolutely brilliant tour! We could not believe the quality of accommodation, food, buses and guides we received for our money. We did not only see the main sights which all tourists wish to see, but we also saw the everyday lives of the Chinese people.

Probably the best feature of the tour was our National Guide Emmanuel Tan. We have travelled fairly extensively overseas with several different companies and he is fantastic. He goes the extra mile and gives great personal attention with great humour.

To sum up - the 'Glories of China Tour' is the best value for money tour we have ever been on. Saw absolutely everything we wanted to in China and could not see what extras other tours companies could add to justify their higher prices. We recommend this tour company to anyone! Well done Wendy Wu."
