Jewels of Japan
Recently returned from the Jewels of Japan tour. This was our first Wendy Wu tour, and we were very impressed by the whole experience which certainly exceeded our expectations. We had an excellent tour guide and everything was so well organised, and were looked after right from the time we arrived at the airport until we checked in at the airport at the end of the tour. Hotels ranged from good to excellent, and we experienced a wide variety of Japanese culture and cuisine and there were so many memorable highlights such as seeing Mt. Fuji up c...lose on a beautiful clear day, riding the Shinkansen train, and experiencing the Japanese tea ceremony to name but a few. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and will certainly be booking more Wendy Wu tours in the future.
China The Big One October 2019
Just want to start by saying I'd be considered a younger than usual traveller (Partner and I are in our mid 30's).
As for this tour - wow - it was absolutely fantastic and a real eye opener. We went in not really knowing a thing about China other then the obvious landmarks and now I honestly can't wait to go back for another trip!
I would like to make clear that the standout of the trip for me was our national tour guide Tony. He absolutely made the trip for us. He is kind, extremely knowledgeable and full of joy. Through Tony I have learnt m...uch and am glad to say that I have made a life long friend. Tony is without a doubt the number one tour guide in all of China and to be honest he is what I will miss the most now that we have returned home. Tony - If you're ever visiting Australia I'll have a bed made ready for you. You will forever be welcome here mate. Thanks again for the incredible experience and the life long memories. A big thank you to Wendy Wu Tours for making this trip possible - When we eventually travel again we will definitely be doing it with Wendy Wu again (any hopefully Tony!!)
Golden Triangle India
A great taster to introduce you to India. Tour communication was great & our guide Jitinder Singh was very approachable & informative. As a solo traveler I found the tour to be enjoyable although a little rushed at times. Would possibly be slightly better over an extra two days but overall I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to go to India & not have to stress about safety etc.

China & Tibet Discovery Classic Tour
My husband and I recently returned from the Wendy Wu China & Tibet Discovery Tour in September 2019. We booked through the Wendy Wu Travel Agency in Sydney who were very helpful in our planning. We were able to purchase the land content only as we planned to arrive a few days earlier than the start of the tour.
We chose Wendy Wu as all meals were included, a national guide and a local guide at each different location. Once we had all thrown in money for tips, we did not have to worry about that again for the rest of the trip. We were in a g...
Delhi to Mumbai - first time for this tour to run.
We booked this tour in October 2018 at the Canberra Travel Expo. This is our fifth Wendy Wu tour so from an organisational point of view we knew what to expect. Excellent meeting and transfer at Delhi Airport at 1 am, contacted by our guide first thing next morning, and apart from 1 very minor hitch it all ran like clockwork.
The guide Mr Sayed Hassan was excellent having a masters degree in Indian History we soo learnt all the nuances of the Hindu and Buddhist religion.
Hotels were all first class, the food was both Indian and Western and serv...
Grand Tour of China
The tour covered everything you are likely to want to see on a first visit to China - Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Terracotta Warriors, Summer Garden, the Giant Pandas, Yangtze River and a great deal more. The optional tours were fully disclosed up front. We went to most and they added to the experience. The hotels were very comfortable through to quite plush. The food was fantastic - as expected it was nothing like a Chinese restaurant in Australia. We opted for the Asian breakfast where there were choices and it was wond...erful eating with the local travellers. Travelling on bullet trains and by air worked very well. Some of the coach legs were long but China is a big country - to be expected! Our tour guide, Ian, was fantastic. We arrived at midnight and he was there on arrival and was waiting for a few people coming later. One of our tour group needed to be hospitalised. Ian was either there at their bedside or helping them make sense of the Chinese health system. Ian, our local guide and others from Wendy Wu kept the tour operating with precision. Ian's caring nature extended to leading those who wanted to participate in walks around the cities we visited - we got to catch a local bus and the underground train network - it felt like we were 'locals'. Wendy Wu like to talk about a 'family' of fellow travellers - Ian made us feel like a family. Ian's language skills in Mandarin and English were great - we got to learn from him and he was keen to understand Aussie, Kiwi and British culture. Outside Beijing and Shanghai, there are not a lot of people who can understand let alone speak English so having a guide proficient in Mandarin is essential. We'd highly recommend the tour to anyone who wants to get a very comfortable but comprehensive experience of China.
Disgusted....I took my almost 79 year old mother on the Wendy Wu Jewels if Japan tour only to come home with bed bug bites. My left arm had 33, my face 11 then I stopped counting. I sent the travel agent photos and an email asking for Wendy Wu to investigate. The travel agent called me to say my information had been passed onto Wendy Wu and someone would contact me direct. Still waiting almost 2 weeks later.
China, what a wonderful, clean and friendly country.
Wonders of China Tour Sept 2019. This tour was wonderful and exceeded my expectations. Our Guide was excellent, very attentive checking in with each tour member to ensure our accomodation, and the food was to our liking. Our National Guide and local guides for each city were all very knowledgeable, helpful and passionate about their country. We where told in writing about the tipping amount that would be collected when we arrived in China, before we left Australia. We where also told about additional tours that would be available. They told you...for each tour that we had already been booked for it ( a sales tactic) but did confirm before for each one if we wanted to attend. We only did 1 of the optional tours and told the guide we would not be attending the others. They did ask again to confirm but we said no and were not pressured again. The major shopping opportunities we where provided by Wendy Wu as part of the tour accepted credit card. If you ventured out to shop in the markets cash was required. All hotels had WiFi and we where able to use whats app and access facebook. Mobile phone service was excellent in all areas.
Wonders of China Tour September 2019
We recently completed a magnificent 17 day tour of China with Wendy Wu. We flew from Melbourne to Beijing and travelled through China ending up in Shanghai before our flight home. What made our trip all the more enjoyable and extraordinary was the very professional national guide Sam Gao who headed our tour.
Sam's knowledge, sincere interest in his 15 person party and amazing attention to detail made this a most memorable trip. Sam should certainly be a most valuable employee of the Wendy Wu business given our experience. He possesses a great ...
Trip was enjoyable!
My friend and I just returned from the 26day, Grand Tour of China.
We enjoyed it very much as our tour guide Lee made the trip enjoyable in spite of two disruptive people.
Lee handled each situation with tact and professionalism every time an issue came up.
We were taken aback by the number of optional tours that were 'highly recommended' and expected to take.
During the optional tours in Shanghai when people did not want to go the local guide told them to 'walk around the area' (the weather changed suddenly and it was raining), have a cup of c...
We have just returned from our 22 day trip to China and what a good time we had,20 in our group and Cathy our guide went over and above to make sure we all got the best from our tour, everything was explained perfectly and the extra things (like a birthday cake and finding a pharmacy ) made the tour a wonderful experience.
Magnificent China Fantastic
I have just arrived home from a fabulous 22day Tour of China....Magnificent China. Which was amazing. Our tour guide CiCi was just fantastic. She bent over backwards so that we enjoyed our journey through China which we did. She always was there....explaining each of the different dishes that we had at meals (always plenty to eat). The history of the next stop be it Terracotta Warriors which we’re amazing The Great Wall of China, or the Summer Palace. The list goes on. In each major city we had a personal guide who took us around telling us ...more information each day. If the weather was inclement and couldn’t do the tour on the day it was organised for another day. We didn’t miss anything. The Yangtze River Cruise was great and well worth up grading. A great experience and a lot of fun. Recommend the tour.
Just returned from 16 day Cities of the Orient tour of China. We were lucky to have a small group of 12 people all from Australia and U.K. a big shout out to our tour leader Garry. We certainly became "Garry's family" and stuck together like sticky rice. Gary was instrumental in making this tour so wonderful for us all. He was very professional and so informative. We learned so much of Chinese history. We were very impressed with China, how clean it was and how proud its people are. Will definitely consider Weny Wu for future adventures. Will also be recommending to friends and family
Incredible India - Golden Triangle
Returned home on Monday from Golden Triangle Tour - it was amazing I enjoyed every day. The tour of the Taj Mahal far exceeded my expectations. It is an experience I will never forget. Our group of 24 were all friendly. Our tour guide Ajay was excellent, his knowledge and experience was amazing. I was ,met at the airport and driven to my hotel efficiently and on leaving Delhi excellent service. Shadid accompanied us to check in to ensure that everything was ok. Wonderful trip, I felt safe at all times. Well done Wendy
Have just spent four days touring Siem Reap with the most wonderful, passionate and knowledgeable guide Vuttha Dam, who has made the start of our trip so memorable. It’s been an amazing experience and we appreciate all he’s done to assist us.
Fantastic Majestic China
My wife and myself have just returned from our Wendy Wu Majestic China tour and to say we had a fantastic time would be an understatement. Everything went very smoothly thanks to our wonderful national guide Garry Guo. His English was very good and his commentary was informative. He went out of his way to be helpful to all the people in "Garry's Family."
We would highly recommend this tour by Wendy Wu.
Awesome trip. Highly recommend
The whole Wendy Wu experience from the booking to the return home was easy. We got what we asked for with the additions, too easy! Betty, our national guide was magnificent. She was professional, helpful and took care of each & every group member. Betty 's family was held together by her like "sticky rice".
Looking forward to my next tour, lead of course by Betty

Questions & Answers
We would like some customer reviews about Discover Japan Tour. We have booked this tour for March next year. The only review I have found was a reviewer complaining about bed bugs !
My wife and I have done 5 tours with Wendy Wu - 3 to China, 1 to Japan and the latest 1 to India. In all 5 of them we have had no problems whatsoever and I cannot praise the company, its guides and its drivers enough. They will totally go out of their way to ensure you have a great holiday.
I cannot remember the title of the Japan tour but it covered Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima and Osaka as well as stopping at a few places en route. At each place the hotel was at least 4 star, each bedroom was en suite, the food was served in wooden cartons which had 9 sections and in all of them I ate at least 8. My wife had special dietary requirements and she was served first, sometimes with food I wanted to taste!.
My advice to you would be not to hesitate and go and enjoy the tour. Get immersed in the Japanese culture and try new things,
On the larger scale Wendy Wu is a VERY reliable company and I have always had very good to exceptional service from them. Happy to answer any more questions.
