I have recently been on the glories of China tour and have been overwhelmed by the all that I saw. This was a wonderful trip that was smooth from start to finish. Our tour guide Sean was superb as were the local guides Christie, Cindy and Andy.
I can only highly recommend the flawless organisational skills which ensured everyone was treated equally and extremely well. A truly unforgettable experience which tested my ability to walk more than the few steps to my car! I returned exhausted but fitter and more knowledgeable about this 'closed' country.
I am so pleased that I did this and say to all my friends to be prepared for something really different than a usual sunshine holiday.

I took my second Wendy Wu tour in June. Having already sampled the ‘Glories of China’ and was impressed by the attention to detail, I plumped for a Cambodia and Vietnam tour, and truly was not disappointed. The strap line should be Look, Book, Pay, Turn Up and Enjoy! Everything was taken care of, the guides and drivers could not do enough for us. We felt comfortable at every moment. Sit back and enjoy the diversity of this Asian paradise. From people, food, sites, relaxation and a huge achievement of crossing the roads without incident.
Highlight had to be Hoi An! Although pleased with all locations.
Will look for another Wendy Wu tour in the not too distant future.

They continue to have a strong focus in China, and are one of the premiere companies for a journey to Asia.

              What Makes Wendy Wu Tours Stand Out?

              Award winning Wendy Wu tours is the real deal. Founded by Wendy Wu herself, an enthusiastic world traveler, these tours are incredibly welcoming. Exploring local life, classic sights, and making lasting friendships are some of the incredibly positive parts of traveling on a tour with Wendy Wu.

              Their in-depth knowledge of the customs, and cultures in the regions they explore on their tours is really what makes them stand out. The wide range of tours that they offer has grown over the years to include not only China but many other areas of Asia as well. With their focus on location familiarization and knowledge, they are dedicated to showcasing the best Asia has to offer.

              Who Will Enjoy Traveling With Wendy Wu Tours?

              Travelers who are eager to explore farther reaches of China, with the assistance and support of a knowledgeable local guide every step of the way, will most enjoy a trip with Wendy Wu. Their approach is welcoming, friendly - guides are resourceful and helpful so all you need to do is sit back and enjoy learning about this vast beautiful country.

              Wendy Wu’s traveler is generally a bit older - between 40-65. Active middle aged travelers and baby boomers with a lust for adventure as well as an appreciation of the finer things. If you love the idea of enjoying a glass of champagne atop the Great Wall, after an invigorating and rewarding walk to get there, then Wendy Wu is the perfect mix of activity and relaxation for you.

              Groups are medium sized, typically no more than 24 and solo travelers are very welcome. You will not need to pay a single supplement if you are willing to share with another same-sex roommate. Most commonly the travelers on your tour will come from the UK, US, and Australia. Guides are fluent english speakers, though you may encounter some thick accents! Private and customizable tours are also offered for those seeking more flexibility in the itinerary.

              As their traveler is typically from the “western” world, a sense of adventure and open mindedness is key for maximum enjoyment. In China and other Asian countries you may encounter differing levels of comfort when it comes to amenities, food, and transportation. Expect to sample a lot of local cuisine, which may be a challenge for those with sensitive stomachs. Another benefit of going with a guide who can help translate and find you things you’ll enjoy.

              There have a wide variety of tour types and styles you can choose, from group tours, private guided, river cruise, luxury small group, to adventure. These are offered in a variety of budget ranges, and don’t usually involve too much strenuous physical activity - though be sure to check as some Wendy Wu tours involve challenging hikes in high altitude.

              Wendy Wu’s primary focus is in Asia, with a strong specialty in China. Since being founded in 1998 as a tour operator to China, they have expanded dramatically, now operating tours in most of Asia. Their extensive use of professional local guides means you’ll get an intimate look at local life and culture. You’ll be able to venture out into the countryside away from the cities for a truly immersive cultural experience.  

              They own and manage their own land arrangements in China, helping you get the most exclusive experience.

              It might seem a bit strange as their brand is so much about welcoming travelers to China and other Asian countries, but Wendy Wu tours also visit a few South American countries. These have the same fully escorted dedication, service, and cultural focus as their Asia tours.

              However, it is our editorial opinion that if you are looking for a South America tour that has the same kind of values so strongly showcased in Wendy Wu’s trips around Asia, you may want to explore other companies first.
