Wendy Wu Tours expands to the Middle East

China specialists Wendy Wu Tours will begin leading tours in the Middle East starting from 2021.

The new product offering will include fully inclusive classic tours to Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Oman plus new tours to Georgia and Uzbekistan.

Wendy Wu Tours’ local managing director, Andrew Mulholland, said the destination is a perfect fit for the company’s current product range, tour styles and experience.

“Our Middle East itineraries showcase the very best Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Oman have to offer, customers will experience all the culture, history and iconic sights the region is renowned for, done the Wendy Wu way,” he said.

Also new from Wendy Wu Tours for its 2021/22 product range is a 14-day fully inclusive tour to Ecuador, as well as Antarctica cruises which can be done either as a pre- or post-holiday extension, a 15-day tour to the Philippines, and a new 21-day Thailand and Mekong experience.

Wendy Wu Tours has developed ‘Travel with Confidence’ protocols in consultation with the United Nations World Tourism Organization, the World Travel & Tourism Council as well as local government regulations across Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.

“In the new COVID-19 world we live in, health and safety are paramount. We are proud of what we have developed,” Mulholland said.

“These new safety protocols cover every element of the holiday experience from accommodation and dining to transport and sightseeing as well as customer’s health and safety both overseas and on return to Australia.

“Our ‘Book with Confidence’ guarantee provides our customers extra assurance with low deposit and extended final payments to 75 days prior to departure.”

Wendy Wu Tours has also unveiled a new website which aims to make planning and booking holidays much easier, with updates and new features to its agent portal coming soon.
