Magnificent China

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 19, 2018

A wonderful trip and the National Guide, Ian was excellent. The sights were amazing, the food great and with a group size of just 20 made getting about much easier. Ian made sure every person on tour was happy, comfortable and getting the most out of seeing his amazing country. I thought this tour was amazing value for money, especially with the trip on the Yangtze River included. A real highlight was the boat ride along the River Li.

Truly amazing holiday

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 18, 2018

We did the "majestic yangtze" day tour.....Had a wonderful guide George, always felt safe, he was very caring and spoke excellent english.
We booked thru a travel agent in person. We had a group of 20 and ended the tour all safe and well having walked and climbed many steps.
The sights and sounds and weather all made for a terrific Wendy Wu experience.

Great time had by all

Classic China 14/5/2018-02/06/2018. We had a full tour group of 28 people. All managed to get along well and had a wonderful experience of China with our helpful, happy guide Lily, who spoke excellent English and was very informative as well as caring for her group when some slowed down with various coughs and colds. The itinerary gave a great overview of China ‘s picturesque landscape to foods and local customs and towns. Wendy Wu should be very happy with the professionalism shown by Lily our guide who made sure all 28 of us were enjoying our China holiday.

China classic

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 10, 2018

China classic 14/5/18- 2/6/18
The national guide was excellent He explained the details well. Speaks good English. He helped
Out with many things that makes our tour more enjoyable and trouble free. He is friendly and very approachable.
The choice of place of visits were excellent. The visits were Chinese culture orientated and with beautiful scenery. The flight between place of interst serve the purpose of reducing travel time by coach- less tiresome. The local guides speak good English with details. The hotels were good and well located . Most of the shows are excellent
The Yangtze cruise were excellent after room and food upgrade. The meals are basic that required
Improvement. On the whole I would recommend the tour to my friend

What a wonderful tour with Jason as our guide. His knowledge, attention and personality was a bonus to a great experience of the cities, culture, food and sites of China. The itinerary exceeded our expectations. We had travelled with Wendy Wu "Angor to the Bay" previously and have no hesitation recommending this company again.

Very well organized Magestic Yantzee Tour

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 09, 2018

Magestic Yantzee tour was fantastic. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. We were very well looked after all the way. Tour guide went over and beyond to make sure everything was good. Some hotels are a little outdated but I feel this is part of China image. All meals were included. Food varies from place to place. We learnt and lot about China and its people. You need to expect things to be quite different in China. Sometimes this can be a little challenging, but all fine in the end.

Grand Tour of China

We have just returned from this wonderful tour the same one as Bruce has just reviewed. We booked this tour on the strength of a previous tour with Wendy Wu to Vietnam a few years ago. Although we had an issue when we first arrived as the tour got subdived and we got separated from our friends, Amy and Johnson quickly rectified the situation so we could be together. Both guides went beyond the call of duty to make our trip special. We felt very safe and cared for and felt they were there for us every step of the way. Well done Wendy Wu a very well oiled machine and very good value for money I would happily recommend this tour to anyone.

Grand Tour of China May 2018

5 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 06, 2018

I’ve just returned from a fantastic trip to China. It was everything I could have hoped for - great cities and sites, great food and the experiences I had I’ll always remember. Amy, our national guide was fantastic. I cannot speak too highly about her. She was delightful, always helpful and very informative. She is a great Wendy Wu asset. I would want to have her as my national guide again if I return to China in the future.
I will definitely be doing another Wendy Wu tour and have no hesitation in recommending others take Wendy Wu tours - you won’t be disappointed.

Wonders of China Tour May 2018

4 out of 5, reviewed on Jun 01, 2018

We were very happy with our Wonders of China Tour booked through our travel agent. Everything was very well organised and our national guide Eileen was excellent, she was very calm, caring and well organised. The local guides were also very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The tour was packed full of both ancient and modern sights. The four internal flights were very well organised with the bags for our whole group being put through check in as a group without us having to do anything. The Yangtze River cruise was very good, we took advantage of an upgrade of our room and the amenities upgrade which entitled us to dine in the a la carte restaurant which was very good. Most hotels were of acceptable standard apart from the Sheraton in Shanghai which was very shabby and our room not very clean. The cleaners did try to give it an extra thorough clean while we were out but the carpet very badly stained, very disappointing we expected more of the Sheraton. Also the meal on the last night of the tour in Shanghai was very ordinary, not nice at all, we expected something a bit special for our last night of the tour together. Having said this we did still thoroughly enjoy this tour.

Grand Tour of China

5 out of 5, reviewed on May 30, 2018

Word of mouth is the best review and the people I talked to all said Wendy Wu tours are great. Well I'm here to tell you they are fantastic. Our Johnson family (as called by the tour leader) had a great 26 days of travelling being looked after by an expert leader who made sure we were well looked after, fed and accommodated. I am looking already to where I can go next with Wendy Wu. I had three tours back to back over six weeks and was treated extremely well by all guides. I now hope to meet my guides again in the near future as they became more like family. I travelled alone but was made to feel as one of a family. Thank Johnson-Amy family you were very special.

Sichuan explorer 15 nights and Guilin and Yangshou short stay

5 out of 5, reviewed on May 30, 2018

Hotels and meals excellent overall. Guides all well informed and helpful'. A big thanks to our national guide, Charles, whose charm and caring ways made us feel well looked after and safe. Unfortunately we weren't informed there was a major change in our itinerary which meant we were not going to see the 9 villages valley which was the main reason for doing this tour. I only found out by accident days before travelling.
Scenery was spectacular.
Wendy wu Sydney office could do with better customer relations but their tours are run very well.

Need to up Date your Sites that you visit.

1 out of 5, reviewed on May 30, 2018

Had a short stay in Beijing, Had a Wonderful Guide Jerry that is where it stopped. Where Wendy Wu had book our Hotel, Novotel Beijing Peace, should be reviewed. It took a half a day, with 3 different rooms offered, before we finally got a reasonable room, that just past. Why did we have to go through that anxiety, I don't know, they had the room there and it took Jerry to get it for us.. I was a tad disappointed to find out the friends who were in China, Beijing, had visited the Great Wall at another site, where you could cable car and toboggan. Maybe it should have been offered to us. The Jade Factory is a waste of time and the meal is a mass production, no flavor at all. Surely there is a better place to eat in Beijing than there? If it wasn't for Jerry offering us different places to see, plus showing us them, I would have been asking for a refund. Wendy Wu maybe you should keep your tours up to date. Surely there are other things to see other than Temple after Temple and more Temples. When we were in Shanghai we book through Tip Advisory and they sure are up to date and live in the present. ALL their tours where great. Wendy Wu Tours you took our money way before we go - lift your game.

The tour was splendid in every respect - from the limousine pick up from home to Sydney airport and return,
The group tour guide was excellent. She ensured we were all kept informed of all activities - very considerate and spoke English well, The local guides were also very professional
The hotels were all 5 star or better. All the meals were first class and well thought out. Transportation was quality in every respect. The scope of the tour was well planned and we experienced wonderful exposure to the county"s development and scenery.
This tour is one of value,

A great trip with good planning

My sister and I have just returned from the Glories of China tour. The attention, planning and kindness exhibited by our guide, Raymond, and our Shanghai guide, Melody, were exemplary and above and beyond the call of the job. Nothing was too much effort and attention to detail was amazing. We also had lots of fun and laughs. Couldn't recommend the trip too highly.

"Magnificent China Tour" and yes it was!!

5 out of 5, reviewed on May 16, 2018

My husband and I recently took the 21 day "Magnificent China Tour" with Wendy Wu (April 2018).
Starting in Beijing and ending in Shanghai our wonderful Tour Guide Helen, could not have been more kind, caring, supportive and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.
Our trip included 4 internal flights, boat trips & coach touring. Helen insured that everything ran smoothly. Helen has a wonderful sense of humour and a very caring nature. I would highly recommend anybody wanting to discover China, to request Helen take care of them.
I would also like to give a very special mention to Jade, our Beijing local expert. What an outstanding young lady!
How lucky we were to not only have Helen but Jade as well! Another very caring, knowledgeable lady with a wonderful sense of humour.
These assets are so important to helping clients enjoy a holiday in a part of the world they have never visited before.
Our trip went without a hitch and will stay with us for many years to come.
Thank you!

Questions & Answers

I’m interested in a Vietnam tour . What are the demographic of travellers with Wendy Wu typically ?

Kelly W asked on Jun 07, 2018

Has anyone been to Vietnam (Hanoi) with Wendy wu recently. We are going very soon and would like feedback. When we stay in Hanoi the hotel has no pool and no balcony. Tell me that its fine please. Can't believe it. Not looking forward to it. Wendy Wu answered by saying we can pay $29 Aud each person each entry to use a pool at the Hilton a taxi ride away. And also there won't be much time to swim. Can anyone help or advise Chez Australia

Tiger asked on May 30, 2018

Answer this

On our trip to Vietnam last year we didn't have time in Hanoi for swims etc. Hotel room was small but adequate for time there

Thanks John. After dinner would be the time for a swim or when returning from day out before dinner.

My mother (85 years) and i are booked on a majestic Yangtze tour. I'm just reading the itinerary and im concerned that with all the walking, some days , 4 or .5 hours, will be too much for her. Am i able to get a rickshaw for her? What is it that you can get an electric cart to the terracotta warrior musuem but not one back to the bus car park?

Erica asked on May 21, 2018

Answer this

I didn't go to the Yangtze so am not able to answer your question about rickshaws. Some older people on my trip did find the walking time difficult and some didn't do the day's activities but chose to stay in the hotel for the day

Hi Erica,

We've noted your queries above and would love to discuss these with you. Please contact our office on 1300 727 998 and speak to one of our Reservations team.

Best Wishes,
Customer Relations Team

Hi Erica we have just returned from magnificent Yangtze tour.had a great time but the walking and steps are very daunting didn’t see any rickshaws but there were motor bikes you could get a ride on. Unless your mother is very fit she may have difficulty with all the steps to climb especially to some of the pagodas. Hope this helps
