No one knows Asia like we do
Most of our staff have travelled throughout Asia and can provide you with detailed information about our itineraries and touring styles, and will help personalise your holiday. We are known as Australia’s specialist operator to Asia, and have been building our global reputation as Wendy Wu Tours since 1998, one satisfied customer at the time. Wendy however first commenced developing programmes to the region years prior, proudly escorting her very first programme in 1994 and learning ever since.
Our extensive experience and local expertise means we can take you to places rarely visited and those you have always dreamed of exploring. We have been blazing trails into this ever-developing region for 25 years, and pride ourselves in delivering authentic experiences. On some of our tours, you will have the opportunity to experience and try your hand at ancient crafts and traditions; and there will be endless opportunities to meet local people and see a lifestyle so different to your own.
Out tours would not be as successful as they are without our solid working relationship with our local partners in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar, as well as the professionalism of our own offices in Sydney, China, London, New York and Auckland. With years of experience operating tours throughout their respective areas, you can be assured that their local knowledge in operations, touring, guides and transport means our tours operate efficiently and smoothly. In addition, they ensure that Wendy Wu Tours has a reliable presence on which you can always depend. Our local partners have an experienced team dedicated to the provision of personal service to all Wendy Wu Tours customers throughout their network of offices.
Dedicated National Escorts
At the heart of Wendy Wu Tours is our team of experienced and dedicated National Escorts and Local Guides. The most common feedback we receive from returning passengers is praise for the caring, efficient and passionate nature of our guides who provide valuable insight into the local history, customs and culture. All our group tours (of 10 or over) are accompanied in Asia by a National Escort. It is in this way that our customers receive the very best of care and return with unrivalled experiences.
With many years’ experience in sending passengers to Asia, we are attuned with the types of hotels and locations our customers expect in order to enhance their holiday experience. Utilising good quality ‘medium range’ properties on our Classic and Immerse Yourself Tours that can vary from a smart business hotel in one city to a family run guest house in a smaller town, we can ensure that no matter where you are staying, a comfortable night’s rest is had.
We inspect our hotels regularly under our ‘We Care’ initiative to ensure that they reach and maintain our high standards of cleanliness, safety and comfort.
Return international economy flights are included as part of our All Fully Inclusive Classic Tours, Immerse Yourself Tours and Deluxe Collection. The airlines offered have the finest reputations for service and reliability on their international and domestic routes. Wendy Wu Tours works closely with our preferred airlines to ensure you travel to and from your destination conveniently and in comfort.
We Love Solo Travellers
Our group tours are a great opportunity to share your experiences with like-minded people. Even better, for solo travellers, Wendy Wu Tours offers a “Willing To Share” option, that can reduce your single supplement to zero! Simply let us know if you’re interested more than 75 days prior, we’ll try to “match” you with a twin-share partner of the same gender, and if not, your single supplement will be waived* (on applicable tours).
Tipping made easy
Tipping is not commonplace in Australia. In Asia however, it is anticipated that a tip be given to reward good service. With that in mind, we have a tipping system for our group tours. Each passenger ‘tips’ a set amount to the National Escort at the start of the tour or on arrival in each country. They then distribute this as appropriate. The Yangtze River cruise service charge is paid when embarking. We advise tipping amounts in your final documentation. Tipping is appreciated for Private and Tailor-Made travel. In your final documents, we include guidelines for tipping when travelling independently.
Meals included in our tours are aimed to provide our customers with a genuine taste of the different regions visited. We endeavour to provide meal options that cover a wide selection of tastes and preferences.
