We spent a marvellous 22 days in October 2017 on a Wendy Wu Magnificent China tour. We found every aspect of the tour well organised and stressless. Logistics were exceptionally well managed, from luggage transfers to providing boarding passes for flights, guidance through stringent airport security, skilled bus drivers, to good quality and well located modern hotels. The tour gave valuable insight into a rich history; and we experienced a very busy modern China, growing before our eyes. The tour group comprised 25 very friendly and good humoured people from the UK, USA and Australia, who quickly bonded and became ‘Ivan’s Family’. Ivan was our National Guide and was a key factor in the success of the tour. He dealt very efficiently with a multitude of details and kept a ‘fatherly eye’ on us all, offering assistance and advice wherever it was needed. This included explanation of the copious amounts of excellent food provided in various styles at local restaurants. His coordination with local guides at each major location and their excellent input made for relaxed and well informed travel. The tour included visits to many well publicised historical and scenic places, performances referencing traditional Chinese culture, and the chance to shop at commercial establishments and markets. It also gave the opportunity to see rapidly changing rural and city landscapes and technology. Among these was a visit to the Three Gorges Dam, part of a relaxing three day cruise on the Yangtze River. Others like the profusion of high rise apartments growing in all cities, extensive elevated motorway networks as in Shanghai, and thousands of electric motor scooters, were all around us. We found that helpful preparatory advice, comprehensive inclusions and the genuine enthusiasm and capability of our guides engendered confidence and much enjoyment. We have no hesitation in recommending a Wendy Wu tour of China.
