What an amazing time we had in China! Our wonderful guide Sophie Jin helped make our tour one of the most memorable tours we have ever been on! From our greeting at the airport on Day 1 to seeing us safely checked in for our departure, Sophie was absolutely amazing! We travelled as a group of 19 "Sophie's Family" for 21 days starting in Biejing visiting Tiananmen Square & The Forbidden City & climbing the Great Wall - wow what an experience! Sophie a National Tour Guide accompanied us on the entire tour. We spent four nights cruisisng the Yangtze River and experiencing the absolute wonder of the Three Gorges Dam. Then onto Chengdu where we were memorised by the Giant Panada's. From cruising the Li River to discovering Guilin to Suzhou to the night cruise & lights of Shanghi the whole experience of China certainly was Magnificent! Sophie our exceptional guide contributed to making our tour magnificient! Sophie is not only a wonderful ambassador for Wendy Wu Tours but also for her country China! Sophie's passion for China is evident, she explained in detail each destination on the coach each day before reaching our locations. Sophie's knowledge of all the destinations in our itinery was remarkable and her English was very fluent. Our flight from Xian to Wuhan was cancelled due to weather. To her credit Sophie was immediatley on the phone to Wendy Wu Tours and within no time arrangements were made for us to travel via Bullet Train and then bus to transfer to Yichang to ensure we boarded our Yangtze River Cruise on time! Sophie went above and beyond the call of duty to transfer our entire group to the metro station and manage to secure 20 tickets on board the train all within a very short time frame! Sophie Jin you were amazing!!! I would fully recommend the 21 day Magnificent China Tour to any tourist thinking of embarking on a trip to China. Hopefully you will be as lucky as we were and if possible make a request to have Sophie as your amazing guide - you won't be disappointed!

Sophie the best guide ever took us around explaining everything about Xiàn, the terra-cotta soldiers, archeology of the zone and Qin dinasty. We also had fun making our own terra-cotta little soldier with clay in the government firm. Great tour, full of knowledge and kindness: we ate at a Qin dinasty traditional restaurant where at the very end they dressed us up as real traditional Chinese couple. We had fun!
In the afternoon after lunch we went for a bike ride on the town walls from the best entrance for pics and see sight. We are thankful to Sophie for this unforgettable day in Xiàn!

We enjoyed this excursion as part of our Magnificent China tour. Our guide was Sophie and if you ever embark on a tour with Sophie your Wendy Wu tour experience will be enhanced by the service provided by an exceptional guide. Sophie is brilliant and a real credit to Wendy Wu. Her knowledge of the subject matter on this excursion was encyclopedic and her command of the English language was such that she was able to impart that information in a manner which was understood by all. Prior to reaching each of the venues on the excursion Sophie would provide detailed information by way of commentary on the coach. She was prepared to answer individual questions from any member of the party and took time to ensure her answers were understood by the questioner. At each venue Sophie spoke to each of our party at some point to make sure each was enjoying the experience and was having no difficulties. If difficulties were encountered Sophie endeavoured to resolve them to the satisfaction of each. Of the excursion itself it is likely that most visitors were aware of the Terracotta Warriors site however the addition of the Terracotta Warrior Making factory was a pleasant surprise. Another pleasant surprise was that we met the farmer who originally discovered the Warriors. The topic of the Ancient Walls maybe sounds a wee bit banal but Sophie's input on the history behind the attraction brought a wee bit more life into the subject. The cuisine was excellent and Sophie stood by to identify to our group the contents of each dish before she sat down to her own meal. The local beer wasn't too bad either ! We would certainly recommend this excursion to any visitor and if you are lucky enough to have Sophie as your guide you will have a fun time. One other plug for Sophie and Wendy Wu concerns our departure from Xian. Our flight from Xian to Yichang was cancelled because of thunderstorms at Yichang. Yichang was where we were due to transfer to Maoping docks to embark on our Yangtze river cruise. Between Sophie and the Wendy Wu office staff alternative travel arrangements were made for us at extremely short notice and this is to the credit of Sophie who worked like a Trojan to get us to Maoping. If this review reads like a letter from the Sophie Jin fan club then we are not ashamed to admit that we would be members. Sophie Jin No.1

George was our tour guided for our amazing 25 day Grand Tour of China stattin on 18 October 2019.
He was exceptionally well organised and the whole trip ran very smoothly. His knowledge of China is excellentt and the local guides he engaged for our tour were excellent. George acted very quickly when one of our group became ill and arranged for transfer and admission to hispital. George went abova and betond what we expeced of a tour guide, and stayed with our tour member and ensured he received expert medical attention. George also ensured that our great local guide in Shanghai stayed with the group and she went above and beyond what we expected of a local guide.

The whole tour was amazing, we were very lucky to have had such a friendly group on our tour.

We thoroughly recommend Wendy Wu Tours and believe we have made a lifelong friend of George. Thanks Mate

What can I say... best tour ever. Issac was very knowledgeable and answered every question about the area and its history. Issac spoke English perfectly and it was so easy to communicate. The driver was very safe and was always close by to pick us up. The warriors factory first was perfect because you could understand the complexity in making the incredible statues. The shopping there was fun and informative the factory let you look around and were not too pushy.

The warriors pit was so impressive. Issac took us the the best places to get a photo. Issac knew the short cuts and how to see the best items. Everything was well explained It was well worth coming to Xi’an to see the site.

Lunch was beyond expectations. The experience with the greeting and pretending to be the Emperor was fun. But the food was excellent. The traditional meal was local and was filling.

The art museum was interesting. The layout and guide explains the history and progression of Chinese art over the different dynasties.

The Xi’an city wall tour was amazing. The history was well explained by Issac once again. The view from the wall was cool.

Overall this tour was the beat ever. Highly recommend and make sure you ask for Issac.

we booked our Wendy Wu tour along with a cruise, we were greeted by our rep Helen Liao who accompanied us on everything we did including organizing our internal flights, checking us into our hotels and even phoning the room to check all was OK.

For Helen Liao nothing was too much trouble, Wendy Wu even gave us a special show in Xian, from the beginning until the end we would recommend Wendy Wu tours to anyone who wants all things organised but still have some free time for themselves.

We had a fantastic tour guide Lisa our little mumma, highly recommend her.

All our tour guides were lovely and all had great sense of humours. Lisa truly made us all feel like family not just another tour group and was there around the clock for any of us. I highly recommend this tour, be sure to ask to be in Lisa’s group, you will be in good hands . Thanks Wendy Wu but most of all an extra thanks to Lisa .

The Xian tour was the highlight of our trip to China.
enjoyed a wonderful meal and stage show in a theatre/restaurant prior to visiting the Terracotta Warriors the following day.

Lisa, our National Guide, was absolutely outstanding. Her knowledge of the history, culture and politics of China in general and of Xian in particular - shone through. Her English is perfect, more so than any of the other guides that we met.

She took us on a night tour of the city, which was another cultural eye-opener. Musicians from Xian’s Music Academy we’re playing and entertaining the crowds who walked through the city. Marvellous!

We visited Jianfu Temple, tried our hands at calligraphy and rang the ‘Magic Bell’ at the Small Wild Goose Pagoda.

A visit to the Moslem quarter was on the itinerary, followed by yet another wonderful meal and a walk along this wonderful city’s walls ended a memorable tour.

Thank you, Lisa - what a wonderful guide.
