Wendy Wu Toursis offering an opportunity to become immersed in the history and traditions of China with fully-inclusive 16-day “Wonders of China” tours. Wendy Wu Tour packages combine many of China’s top sites with special touches: at the Great Wall – access at entry points away from the crowds and vendors; a cruise on the panoramic Huangpu River, which links the historic Bund and futuristic Pudong areas of Shanghai; and entry into the Great Mosque in Xi’an’s lively Muslim Quarter, to name a few.
The fully-inclusive prices for each tour cover all costs, including round-trip air from NY or LAX, all meals, excursions, stellar accommodations, a full-time Wendy Wu Tours Manager escort – even the visa fee, processing and taxes. Pricing for “Wonders of China,” which has 32 departures between May 22 and Nov. 9, 2011, ranges from $3,690 to $4,390 per person, double.
Highlights include both the sites that all visitors to China must see – Shanghai’s breathtaking Yu Gardens and Old Town; Tiananmen Square and the Great Wall in Beijing; the Great Pandas at the Chongqing Zoo; and Xian’s Terracotta Warriors and Ancient City Wall – as well as some that are not included in the mass market tours: an exploration of the unique 1920’s style shikumen buildings in Shanghai’s restored Xintiandi area; and Beijing’s Summer Palace are examples.
Meals and excursions play an important role on the tour — whether it is authentic Shanghai cuisine; Peking Duck, artfully carved at tableside; a traditional Shui Jiao dumpling meal followed by a performance of Tang Dynasty Dancing; the Islamic food markets in the Muslim Quarter; or a fascinating Chinese Acrobatic show in Beijing.
Group Tours have a maximum of 28 persons, comfortably ensconced in 49-passenger coaches for most tours. Single supplements are available as well as sharing opportunities. A new 68-page full-color brochure has been produced highlighting the many offerings, and a new North American website has been unveiled to serve the consumers and travel agents: www.wendywuschina.com. Wendy Wu Tours also offers Private Tours — fully-inclusive but offering more flexibility and excellent for small groups, reunions, family groups, alumni groups or just friends looking to have a nice private vacation together in a mystical land.
The prices include all costs aside from gratuity. All international flights (from NYC and LAX), fuel surcharges, taxes, accommodations in centrally-located superior-three- and four-star hotels, three meals a day, intra-China transportation, daily tours and entrance fees, evening entertainment, English speaking guides, a Wendy Wu Tours Manager escort – even the $190 visa fee and processing.
