Wendy Wu Tours celebrates 2021/22 Japan brochure launch with whopping upgrade offer

Wendy Wu Tours has unveiled its spanking new 2021/2022 Japan brochure complete with an unbeatable business-class offer.

Andrew Mulholland, managing director for Australia at Wendy Wu Tours, said the company is expecting strong interest, particularly in its ‘Japan by Rail’ tour, which he said showcases the best of Japan.

“Despite the current market conditions, we are seeing exceptional interest in Japan,” Mulholland said.

“As the leaders in providing great-value, inclusive tours to Japan, we are determined to continually meet the strong demand travellers’ are showing for this very special destination.”

Japan by Rail is fully inclusive and kicks off in Fukuoka, taking clients across three islands (Kyushu, Honshu and Hokkaido) over three weeks travelling by Shinkansen (bullet train).

“Japan continues to be a highly sought-after destination for our customers – the fascination with Japanese culture being so different from our own, the ancient traditions mixed with the modern cityscapes, it doesn’t surprise us that there is an ongoing demand for Japan tours,” Mulholland said.

To mark the launch of its 2021 Japan brochure, your clients can get a return upgrade to business class flying Singapore Airlines for only $999 per person.

The offer is backed by Wendy Wu Tours’ ‘Book with Confidence’ program, including a low deposit of $99 per person, extended payment terms (final payment is not required until 75 days prior to departure) and COVID-19 safety protocols.

Here’s a taste of the new trips:
