....South America and South Africa!
We are very excited to announce that we have now expanded our award winning tours into two new breathtaking regions of the world.
We will be using our expertise and winning formula that we have perfected from operating tours in Asia over the last 20 years. So you can rest assured if you have already enjoyed one of our Asia tours, you will receive exactly the same award winning service and on-tour Wendy Wu experience.
After listening to feedback from our customers, it’s not surprising that both these destinations are at the very top of your travel wish list. With sights including Machu Picchu, the ‘Lost City of the Incas’ and the dramatic Iguaçu Falls to stunning Cape Town and the ‘Big 5’ wildlife experiences, you’ll return with memories to cherish.
So be one of the first to join us on a new and exciting journey of a lifetime.

Australian passport holders do not require a visa to travel to Malaysia and Borneo. Other passport holders should arrange visas well in advance of departure, if required.
While travelling overseas, the Wendy Wu Tours contact number during business hours is +61 2 9224 8888.
Emergency Assistance (24-hours) is 0044 1888 288 288.
You will find mobile phone coverage to be quite high throughout Asia. We recommend contacting your mobile carrier if you intend to use international roaming during your holiday and ensure you investigate all associated call and data costs before you leave Australia. Some hotels may have Wi-Fi, which usually comes at a cost.
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.
Tipping is appreciated for Private and Tailor-Made travel. In your final documents, we include guidelines for tipping when travelling independently.
Shopping is a fun and entertaining component to any travel adventure. In keeping with most people’s interests while on holiday, your tour includes a reasonable number of opportunities to shop for local goods and souvenirs. Included are visits to establishments that provide locally produced goods, unique to your destination. Witness the creation of these products, and see first-hand how their production supports the local economy. As most travellers like to take home souvenirs, we ensure the shops you visit have a reputation for quality, honesty, and authenticity.
We aim to cater to the tastes of the majority of people and so the food is not too spicy or too unusual.
Breakfast at your hotel includes local and western dishes. In remote areas, we suggest embracing local specialities. Lunch and dinner consists of shared dishes. Meals generally finish with fruit to clean the palate.
Drinks such as beer, soft drinks or bottled water are at your own expense locally.
Wendy Wu Tours inspects all hotels to ensure they meet the high levels of service, which we require for our guests. We pick the right hotel for the specific destination, meaning your accommodation can range from a smart business hotel in one city to a family-run guesthouse in a smaller town. Chosen hotels are also chosen for ease of navigation around tourist sights.
