I travelled with Wendy Wu Tours to China and had a fantastic time. All travel arrangements and transfer arrangements went smoothly and the hotels were of a really good standard.

There were 29 people on my tour, 1 solo traveller (me) and the ages ranged from approx 40 to 80! The tour required a good level of fitness as a significant amount of the sightseeing was on foot and on uneven surfaces.

The ‘Glories of China’ tour price included all meals, sightseeing trips and entrance fees. The National Guides and local guides were excellent, very knowledgable, very approachable and fiercely proud of their home country; nothing was too much trouble and all guides went out of their way to ensure that all members of the group enjoyed the tour.

Exploring iconic sights such as The Great Wall, The Terracotta Warriors, the River Li, and the Summer Palace far exceeded my expectations – this took some doing as China has been on my wish list since 1975 when I watched a feature on Blue Peter about the Terracotta Warriors!

The food was delicious, but anyone not liking Chinese food would struggle. Apart from breakfast where a mixture of European and Chinese food was always available, all other meals were a selection of local Chinese dishes.

All hotels provided free Wifi access however Google, WhatsApp, Facebook and Gmail are all blocked in China. I wish I had realised this before my holiday as it made communicating with the UK very expensive! Friends have since told me they used an App they downloaded before they entered China which enabled them to access the blocked Apps.

For me the cherry on the cake was that my trip was booked when Wendy Wu were offering a free upgrade to Business Class for the homeward journey. I flew with Cathay Pacific and although the facilities, staff and service on the outward journey was very good the homeward journey in Business was fabulous!

I thoroughly recommend the Glories of China tour. I will definitely travel Wendy Wu Tours again.
