          A Great Way To See China's Important Sites.
          If you want to see the main sights of China, this is the trip for you. It includes a 3 night cruise along the Yangtze fully inclusive of excursions, our ship was the Victoria Jenna (tip, 4th level is best for quietness in your cabin) . You will see on this tour the 3 Gorges, the Panda rehabilitation centre, the Great Wall, the Terracotta Army and much much more. You will experience the bullet train, the maglev train, the only one of its kind, incredible architecture in Shanghai and Beijing, trips to the theatre in the evening, all hosted by our fantastic guide Grace. You will visit the Yu Garden in Shanghai, all the main palaces including the Forbidden City in Beijing, Tiananmen Square etc. The hotels we stayed at were all really good, comfortable, well maintained, the locals were great and the food was excellent, I had certain catering needs and Wendy Wu and especially Grace made sure I was well looked after. Thumbs up to Wendy Wu for their organisation of the trip, I had no complaints whatsoever, in fact, I enjoyed China so much I will be booking another trip there next year to another part. This holiday is fairly full on, lots of early starts, a fair amount of walking, but it was more than worth it, this was my second trip with Wendy Wu and I highly recommend them.

          Amazing holiday with fantastic George
          We can highly recommend this amazing action packed holiday. We saw so much, Beijing, Xi’an, pandas, Guilin, Yangtze cruise, Shanghai, the list was endless and so exciting. Hotels, food, organisation and everything about this adventure was really good but one of the best parts was our wonderful guide George. He treated us like family, passionately cared for the group and provided a highly Informative commentary on all we saw. Unfortunately I fell at the start of the trip and George was fantastic, he sensitively looked after me and made sure I was safe and stayed by my side throughout treatment. I was able to continue with the trip watched over by George. He really was like family and I cannot praise him enough, fantastic guide and wonderful person! The entire holiday proved to be so much better than expected, China is a fascinating country and we would love to do another Wendy Wu adventure - especially if George could be our tour guide again.

          China and Tibet....Bucket List Check ✅
          We have just arrived back in Australia after our 'China and Tibet Discovery Tour's with Wendy Wu. We weren't quite sure about what to expect with our trip to China but WOW! If it's not on your list or you're umming about going... Our advise... DO IT! We travelled via plane, coach, bullet train and explored not nearly enough of this amazing country. We saw all the attractions you think of when you think of China .. the wall, the Terracotta warriors, forbidden City, temples, Pandas, Monks etc... but we were not prepared for how much more there is to see and do. We are already planning our next trip via the Silk Road. Our National Escort, Louis, was truly amazing! He is an asset to himself and Wendy Wu. He made us feel at ease , which considering we didn't speak the language or have any idea of how to get to places was a huge deal. We felt confident , secure and safe with him leading the group. He approached everything with a relaxed persona and a smile on his face. No ask was too big. We had a full group of 28 and everyone felt personally attended to. We ranged in age from 24 to 75 and he managed not to lose any of us lol. Having Louis as a guide made moving through China a breeze. He had excellent English skills and a great sense of humour. I think we even left him with some Aussie phrases lol. Louis made our trip feel very individual by changing things up when we asked. For example, adding extra shows we'd be interested in and even took us to a street party! Our local guides were awesome as well. David and Grace definitely knew their stuff and were relaxed in their approach to the group. We were taught phrases that we put to excellent use! The food was bright , colourful and plentiful. We were complaining of eating too much lol. The hotels were comfortable , clean and luxurious and convenient to all the stops we made. The people were so welcoming. They were interested in us as much as we were them. I have definitely come home with a different opinion of China and all it has. Thank you for such an amazing and memorable experience Louis and Wendy Wu. This trip will stay with us forever.

          Very Impressive Tour
          We weren't really sure what to expect from this holiday, but it surpassed all possible expectations. The tour was very intensive, and we saw so much of the Chinese culture, learned a lot of the history, and gained an insight into the ways of life of those in the cities, and of those in the countryside. We covered an incredible distance, travelling by plane, bullet train, cruise ship and coach, but the organisation was impeccable and our national guide, Britany was absolutely amazing. She was a fountain of knowledge, had incredible organisational skills, was attentive to the needs of every group member, and her standard of English was excellent. She seemed to intuitively know how much knowledge to impart to the group at any one time, without overloading them, and she had an excellent sense of humour. She called us "Britany's Family", and by the end of the trip we actually felt like a family. We feel as if we saw all of the most important sights in the areas covered by our tour, but some of the days were very long. We were extremely lucky with the weather, and there were no days when it was too hot. Had it been so, the long, outdoor sightseeing days may have been uncomfortable. Many of the Chinese people use umbrellas as sunshades, and this may be worth bearing in mind if we return during the hotter months. We were very impressed with all of the meals which were included in our tour. The food was plentiful, varied, colourful, and of good quality. The hotels used were of excellent standard, and were very impressive. They were all situated in central locations which was very convenient. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Many thanks to Wendy Wu, and Britany.

          China… an amazing country
          We went on the Wendy Wu ‘China and Tibet Discovery ‘ tour. Saw all the highlights eg Great Wall, Forbidden City etc and so so much more. A lot was packed into our fortnight so the three night cruise on the Yangtze River was a welcome break. Very relaxing sitting on the balcony of our cabin on the ship watching the river go by. Really wonderful National Guide Louis who guided our large group through this fascinating country and steered us onto planes, trains, buses and ships. Not an easy job but done with quiet efficiency and a smile. Local guides good too especially YanKe in Lhasa. A great introduction to this rapidly changing country. Local people were delightful and were as interested in us as we were in them. Our guides taught us a few phrases in Mandarin and Tibetan that we put to good use. A great way to see this huge country and compare the old China and the new. Highly recommended.

          Magnificent China
          I did the Magnificent China tour. It was lovely! I was able to experience a wide range of aspects of Chinese culture. Grace was our guide, she was great and helpful throughout the trip. Thank you Grace!

          Amazing tour of China with Betty's Family
          This was an action packed trip that was nothing short of amazing! We managed to pack in all the highlights including Shanghai, the Yangtze River, the panda sanctuary, the terracotta warriors, the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City and so much more. Food was excellent as was the hotels. My friend and I would not have been able to navigate around all of these places without our fabulous tour guide Betty. From meeting us at the airport, Betty told us we were part of her family and she really treated us like that. We were extra lucky in that all the travel companions on this tour were super friendly. I wasn't expecting to meet so many people who be forever known as Betty's family. Can't rate this tour and Betty enough!

          Wonderful whirl of a tour
          We had an all inclusive visit to the major tourist sites in China travelling from the UK with Wendy Wu. The Wonders of China tour certainly showed us that and so much more, led by brilliant national tour guide Zhang Ru known as Britney! We were looked after all the way, on and off coaches, bullet trains and internal flights, excellent hotels, meals in local restaurants, opportunities to see life in China and also time to ourselves. Superb organisation with so much packed in to the 16 days, memories made of a trip of a lifetime.

          Wonders of China Tour
          Wonders of China Tour The 16 night tour of China was amazing. It exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Great accommodation, tours and the food was excellent. My wife if gluten intolerant and they accommodated her everyday that we were in China. Very well organised trips daily both inclusive and optional. Amazing photo opportunities during the tour. Our main tour guide Britney (Zhang Ru) was amazing, very well organised and knew when to attend the tours so that the waiting time was minimal, a major credit to Wendy Wu. All of our local guides were very knowledgeable of their cities and regions. I would highly recommend Wendy Wu Tours 100%. A very enjoyable experience was had by all in our group.

          Wonders of China tour
          This was mine and my dads first trip to China and we were thoroughly surprised. This tour is an all inclusive tour which included our admission tickets, transport costs and all food. It covers all of the main tour sites as well such as the Great Wall of China, the forbidden city, temple of heaven, the Terracotta Army and pandas which lasted for 16 days. Our National guide and local guides were all exceptional. They were knowledgeable, passionate, funny and nothing was too much for them. To which our National guide Britney (Zhang Ru) and our Beijing local guide Alan (Jiao Yang) were fantastic. They really helped put us at ease and made the whole experience as amazing as it was. We felt welcomed right from the get go with both of them. I would recommend this company and this tour to anyone who wants to go to China or is thinking of visiting.

          Jewels of Japan
          Visited wonderful places in Japan, most hotels were excellent . We enjoyed the company of fellow travellers and the coaches were comfortable albeit we did not spend that much time travelling by road as the long legs were by bullet train which was great. Cherry blossoms were beautiful. We enjoyed the variety of foods and restaurants were very good. However, we had two inexperienced guides each with different English language abilities. They were pleasant and tried their best but were quite hard to understand and made it difficult to ask questions. This led to lack of good information about places visited, points of interest along the way and interesting cultural info. Our headsets were useless, both because we couldn’t really hear/understand what was being said and they totally died after a few days. Replacements were not offered. We didn’t make it to intro dinner because of late arrival. Other late travellers were refunded for the dinner but we were told we had been “booked in”. We missed our Tokyo Bay cruise as the boat had mechanical issues. Had dinner aboard but it would have been good to have some flexibility to change nights. Organisation was disappointing. The second guide was not familiar with the restaurants/bus locations and we spent much time retracing steps. Waiting around for tickets was also frustrating as it did not seem to be organised properly prior to arriving. We were even asked to put our hands up if we were over 70 as tickets to the museum would be free. I found that very inappropriate and uncomfortable, as did most. Our guide rang our room (and all other travellers on tour) after 11pm on last night asking whether we returned our headsets. She was tracking down one headset which had gone missing. Information for transfer to airport for return journeys for everyone was dreadful. Such confusion. Overall we enjoyed Japan and the itinerary but at times the organisation was frustrating and not what we were expecting from a Wend Wu tour.

          Amazing guide, Amazing tour
          From the moment, our Guide George Pu met us at Beijing Airport through all of the magnificent sites we saw, the amazing meals we had, and the great shows we went to until he saw us safely on the plane at Xian we could not have been in better hands. Although we were travelling as a couple there were 28 people in our tour group. We all agreed that George did a fantastic job both organisationally (it was pretty much seamless) and with his knowledge and enthusiasm. He made a good trip fantastic. Well done Wendy Wu for a great tour and for employing the most incredible Guide. Hang onto him. He is gold dust!

          Absolutely Incredible “Glories of China”
          We have just returned from the most amazing tour with Wendy Wu - “Glories of China”. We were looking for a tour that gave us a good flavour of what China has to offer and this tour delivered it in spades!! “Glories of China” showcases the big-ticket items, along with some of the most beautiful rivers and scenery on offer and all within a compact length of stay of only 14 days. Our national escort Addison was the consummate professional - he is knowledgeable, effervescent, understanding and one of the best guides we have ever encountered (17 years with Wendy Wu is saying something). Addison is simply brilliant and we were so very lucky to have him. Ding ding hao! We were joined by expert local guides in each city - Sammi in Shanghai, Oscar in Guilin/Yangshuo, Alan in Beijing, who were each excellent and not one of them read from a script! The highlights for us were the night cruise of Shanghai (absolutely breathtaking to see this vibrant city lit up on this scale), the delightful cruise along the Li River from Guilin to Yangshuo, the stunning Impression Sanjie Liu show in Yangshuo (offered as an option but is absolutely not to be missed), the Terracotta Warriors in Xian (far exceeded our expectations) and of course the Great Wall of China in Beijing (a huge bucket-list item). We can’t recommend Wendy Wu tours highly enough. All meals are included (unlike most other tours we have done), and the visas were expertly prepared for us by head-office (which was greatly appreciated). If you’re looking for the trip of a lifetime, look no further than Wendy Wu tours. Ni Hao China!!

          Fab tour Beijing, Xian and Hong Kong
          Just completed an excellent 7 day Wendy Wu tour of Beijing, Xian and Hong Kong with The Great Wall and Terracotta Army the highlights. George Pu was our guide in China and was fantastic - knowledgeable, professional, friendly with a sense of humour. He looked after us at every step of the journey and we would thoroughly recommend this tour! Amazing experience!

          Excellent and informative tour completely due to George Pu and his knowledge and personal attention to our whole group.
          Excellent personal service given by George Pu as well as a very comprehensive knowledge of Xi’an. Nothing was too much trouble and George went above and beyond, we were truly spoilt! This personal touch made our holiday complete.

        Just completed a “taste of China” with Wendy Wu, - Beijing; Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Palace Museum , Temple of Heaven, Great Wall of China, Summer Palace.
        Bullet Train to Xian with City wall tour, (with a bit of dressing up! :-)) Terracotta Warriors tour.
        Accommodation , food and added optional evening shows/meals out throughout the week were all superb.
        The experience was fantastic and the organisation faultless - Many thanks to George Pu our main tour guide, who was brilliant, as were the local guides, Mark and Hoffman.
        Overall this tour was outstanding - made so by the great organisation, humour and patience of George - a great ambassador for Wendy Wu and China!
        Many thanks
