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 21 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.
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 Discovery 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, Discovery Tours and Deluxe Tours. 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.
Our group tours are a great opportunity to share your experiences with like-minded people. We welcome plenty of solo travellers on our tours, and receive great feedback from them about the friendly and sociable atmosphere of our groups. Even better if you are a single traveller, book outside 60 days before departure and are willing to share a room, you won’t have to pay a single supplement.
Tipping is a firm and expected element in the tourism industry. A nominated tipping amount is included in all group tour pricing. Tipping is not collected in your final payment received by Wendy Wu Tours, but is paid to the National Escort who then distributes it to your guides and drivers on your behalf.
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.
