    Tipping and Gratuities

    Tipping while on holiday is common in most parts of the world and Southeast Asia is no exception.

    However, it is not always clear who it is appropriate to tip and how much.

    Furthermore, travellers may not have the right amounts of cash available at the right time.

    In order to avoid any inconvenience Wendy Wu Tours operates a tipping policy where a stated amount is given to your national escort at the beginning of your tour and tips are disbursed to local guides and drivers throughout your tour.

    The amount is designed to be at a reasonable level for travellers while being fair to the local people and includes a gratuity for the national escort.

    If you are travelling in a smaller group with local guides only, then tipping is paid in each destination.

    To be fair to the guides we ask for slightly higher amounts per traveller with small groups.

    We generally find that most customers appreciate the convenience of our tipping policy, but we do recognise that it may not suit everyone.

    However, as this is a group tour we ask that everyone follows the same protocol to be fair to other group members and to ensure smooth operation of your tour.

Angkor was amazing and Cambodia very interesting.

Most of the places in Vietnam were very good and Halong Bay spectacular.

The tour was well-organised and the guides very friendly and knowledgeable.

Some hotels were excellent, but some could have been better, but, they were all clean well looked after and in very good locations.

The food was generally very good except for the odd occasion and at times a bit too much of the same cuisine but to be fair we did have some different meals offered on the tour.

We had the most amazing holiday.

We travelled as a family with our 2 sons who are 16 and 20.

Our tour guides, Vuttha in Cambodia and Win Win in Vietnam were exceptional.

Through them, we gained valuable insight into the countries history and culture.

They both had a very good sense of humour which we appreciated.

Nothing was too much trouble, and they ensured that we were happy with how things were at all points of the tour.

They looked after us as if we were their family .

.

.

.

they provided us with safety advice to each area we visited and made sure we always had enough water, bug spray and sunscreen etc.

The content of the tour was incredible.

We can still not get our heads around what we managed to see within the time that we were there.

Every place we visited was interesting, and we were given a wealth of information about it.

Every day of the tour gave us food for thought and contemplation.

The food was a good mix of local food and the odd western meal.

The hotels were all of very good standard but variable with the facilities depending on the hotel location.

For example, one of the city hotels had a small hot tub and no pool.

This did not bother us as there was always something to do.

The transport was all of good quality and the drivers were polite and helpful.

We did 8 flights in total, 4 of them domestic.

The tour guides ensures that we were all checked in and that we were aware of what gate to go to.

We were escorted to the airport in the last day by a local guide called Vinh who was a very knowledgeable and polite young man.

.

.

one to watch out for ! We recommend Wendy Wu tours to everyone.

We will definitely book again.

A few of the people who we were on tour with were seasoned Wendy Wu travellers.

.

.

a very good recommendation in itself ! It was so nice to go away and have everything taken care of.

Thanks to everyone who made this the best family holiday we have ever had less....

    How we Keep you safe on our Tours

    Your safety and well-being will always be our Number 1 priority which is why we’ve instituted the most stringent COVID health and safety protocols on all of our tours. Here is a brief summary of the steps we are taking to ensure you will be safe, secure and satisfied when you travel with us.


    Guides and National Escorts
    Our National Escorts and guides will conduct a Health and Safety briefing with you before the tour begins and will help everyone ensure they adhere to social distancing, hygiene practises and local regulations. They will carry a supply of face masks and hand sanitiser for you to use free of charge and will, of course, observe the highest level of personal hygiene at all times.

    Should anyone on the group fall ill your National Escort will ensure the individual receives swift medical attention and can only return to the group once cleared to do so.


    Transport & Sightseeing
    Vehicles will be thoroughly cleaned with disinfectant after each excursion service, overnight and between different groups.

    You will always have at least one seat between you and your fellow tourers, hand sanitiser will be given to the group on each embarkation and vehicles will be thoroughly ventilated prior to passengers boarding.

    Drivers will always embark vehicles after clients, disembark the group vehicle prior to clients disembarking, and maintain social distancing and a high level of personal hygiene at all times.

    Your guides will assess the situation on the ground avoiding large crowds – where possible, alter timings and splitting the group into smaller sizes.


    Accommodation
    Wendy Wu Tours will only offer hotels that have undergone a detailed hygiene assessment, have specific COVID-19 protocols in place and comply with government standards.

    We will ensure these protocols include staff practising social distancing and wearing appropriate PPI, regular cleaning and disinfection of high frequency touch points in all areas and food safety.


    Dining
    All the restaurants we visit will be researched and inspected regularly to ensure that they follow the strictest health, cleanliness and safety guidelines.

    All waiting staff will wear face masks and gloves and we will arrange à la carte dining, waiter-served meals or waiter-assisted buffets throughout the tour. We will not share open-buffet meals with other hotel or restaurant guests.

    Hand sanitiser will be provided to the group before and after every food and beverage service.
