Every group tour which has 10 or more passengers travelling will be accompanied by a national escort from when you land at the airport, to when you depart. On multi- country tours, different national escorts are used in each country. Our optional extensions are not accompanied by a national escort; however you will have the benefit of our knowledgeable local guides. Transfers and flights to and from optional extension destinations are not escorted. Private tours are not accompanied by a national escort, but will be accompanied by knowledgeable local guides in each location.

Q. What size are your tour groups? A. The maximum group size varies depending on the tour, but is usually between 8 and 28 passengers. You may meet other tour groups travelling concurrently. Where available, on our group tours we operate a seat-and-a-half policy, allowing you to travel in comfort. Q. Do you run guaranteed departures? A. Our most popular tours are guaranteed to depart, subject to a minimum of two passengers travelling. All other group tours are guaranteed to run subject to a minimum of 8 passengers, and a National Escort will accompany each group of 10 or more.

Q.  As a single traveller, will I have to pay a single supplement? A. No. On most group tours we offer the option to share with a tour member of the same gender so there are no additional charges for travelling alone. You will be introduced to your share partner on arrival. Note that on overnight rail journeys and cruises this may not be with a Wendy Wu Tours passenger. To arrange a guaranteed private room, our single room option is available for an extra cost (you will still be required to share on overnight rail journeys).

Q.  What is the maximum luggage allowance on your tours? A. Your main suitcase should not exceed 44lbs and carry-on luggage is limited to 11lbs, based on the maximum allowance on domestic flights. Q.

Please ensure you have sufficient funds to pay for personal expenses such as drinks, snacks, souvenirs, additional tipping and optional extras. Tipping must be in US dollars. See page 100. Q.  When is the best time to visit Southeast Asia?

A. Southeast Asia is a year-round destination. While November – April are the most popular months to visit, many people enjoy tours at other times of the year when there are fewer tourists. See page 101. Q.  When are Southeast Asian public holidays? A. Vietnamese New Year, otherwise known as Tet, will be on 29th January 2017 and 17th February 2018. Celebrations last up to ten days. New Year celebrations for Cambodia, Laos and Thailand are in mid- April every year. Some businesses may be closed and tourist sites will be busier. Q. What sort of vehicles do you use? Air: Internal flights are based on economy class, with reputable airlines. Road: Coaches with air conditioning are used on our group tours for city sightseeing, short excursions to the countryside and longer transfers where necessary. On our private tours we use air- conditioned vehicles suitable for the size of the party.

Water: Ships or boats are used on tours which have a cruising element, from river cruising ships on the Irrawaddy and Mekong to Junk Boats on Halong Bay. To undertake these excursions, you will need to be capable of boarding and disembarking from these boats, sometimes without assistance and/ or handrails. Rail: Trains are used on some tours. Where there is an overnight journey we use the best available soft sleeper trains. Each compartment is shared by four people (not necessarily Wendy Wu Tours passengers). There is a Western-style toilet at one end of the carriage and an Asian-style toilet at the other end. The beds and cabins are basic with clean linen provided and there are neither showers nor a dining car. The trains are generally clean; however you cannot expect Western standards.

All meals (excluding beverages) are included in our group tours except where stated. Please note that in remote areas such as the Mekong Delta and Sapa, meals may be basic or repetitive.

Any additional meals will be at your own expense and no refund will be made for any meals missed. You will sample a range of local cuisine with occasional western meals, and meals are usually taken at local restaurants. Q. Is tap water safe to drink? A. We strongly recommend that you drink bottled water only.

Q. Can special requests be arranged? A.

Please note that special requests cannot be guaranteed. Q.  What is the flying time to Southeast Asia? A. Approx. 17-18 hours (depending on departure city). Q.  Do you allow children on your tours?

Younger and older passengers travel with us too. Q.  What hours of the day do your tours operate? A. They generally start about 8am and end shortly after your evening meal. Occasionally earlier starts are required to meet flight departures.

Q.  How do standards abroad compare with the US? A. We will do our best to ensure that your vacation is safe and trouble free and we are continually working with our local partners to maintain and improve health and safety standards. Travelling abroad involves new places and new experiences and sometimes this means different safety and hygiene standards to those we are used to in the US. We therefore ask that you take care; pay attention at all times and use your common sense. You are also requested to refer to notices and follow advice from your national escort or local guide.

Q. Is Tipping Compulsory? A. Tipping is a necessary part of the tourism industry worldwide. For your convenience, total compulsory tipping amounts are stated on each group tour page (subject to change), to be paid in USD to your national escort on arrival. Porterage is included on our Group Tours to Southeast Asia (from the coach to the lobby of each hotel). For tours with fewer than 10 passengers, tipping will be slightly higher than stated on the group tour pages. On private tours and extensions, tipping is discretionary and we will advise recommended amounts.

WeCare – Health & Safety The enjoyment of your vacation is our highest priority. Wendy Wu Tours is a fully insured and bonded tour operator with comprehensive public liability coverage. Working closely with an independent health and safety organisation, we are proactive in our approach by ensuring that hotels used on our group tours regularly undergo comprehensive fire safety, security and hygiene audits. In the unlikely event of a problem or emergency on tour, Wendy Wu Tours has a Crisis Management process in place to support all of our customers.

103 102 Visit www.wendywutours.com Call (877) 993-6399 or visit your local travel agent PAYMENT Once you have asked us to confirm your booking, the total price of the arrangements you have booked is due and payable as follows: If you book more than 65 days before your scheduled departure date, a non-refundable land deposit of $300 per person is payable at the time of booking and the full remaining balance payable 65 days before your scheduled departure date. If you book 65 days or fewer before your scheduled departure date, the total amount is payable when you book. In addition, full payment is required at the time of booking for any instant purchase airfare.

PRICES All prices shown in this brochure are in USD and are per person. We reserve the right to change prices quoted in this brochure for any reason at any time before you confirm your booking. Once a booking has been confirmed we reserve the right to change prices in line with any changes in fuel surcharges and currency fluctuation or any fees chargeable for the services included in the cost of your vacation. Should it be necessary to impose any surcharges, we will notify you of the relevant adjustments by issuing a new invoice.

GUARANTEED DEPARTURES All group departures are guaranteed to travel with a minimum of 8 passengers travelling except when the departure is canceled due to force majuere. This may include but not be limited to flight cancellations due to mechanical problems, sickness, weather, strikes, war, quarantine, civil strife, riots, terrorist activity, industrial dispute, natural or nuclear disaster, adverse weather conditions, fire, flood, drought, government action, airport and port regulations and closures, technical transportation problems, maintenance to vessels, scheduling of transport and similar events outside our control. Wendy Wu Tours reserves the right to withdraw departures at any time and for any reason before 8 passengers have booked.

MEALS Meals on our fully inclusive Classic Group Tours start with dinner on the day of arrival and finish with breakfast on the day of departure contingent on flight arrival time. Any additional meals will be at your own expense and no refund will be made for any meals missed. Please note that on our active tours, meals in remote areas may be basic or repetitive. We will endeavor to fulfill special dietary requirements notified at the time of booking, however as Wendy Wu Tours does not own or operate the restaurants used, this cannot be guaranteed and Wendy Wu Tours does not accept any liability for consequences arising from special dietary requirements not having been met. Passengers with special dietary requirements should advise Wendy Wu Tours reservation staff at time of booking. TIPPING Tipping is an expected element in the tourism industry today and the countries we visit are no exception. On air inclusive Classic Group tours, Discovery tours and the Premier Collection, in order to relieve customers of the expectation to tip individual guides and service providers in each destination, we state an amount to be given to the National Escort on arrival to cover the duration of the tour. You will be advised of the amount payable in your final documentation prior to departure. The Wendy Wu Tours tipping protocol is a compulsory local payment. On multi-country tours this amount will be paid in stages on arrival in each country. For tours with fewer than 10 passengers, tipping will be slightly higher than stated on the tour pages. Please note that tipping is included for any cruise portion, however this element will be paid upon check in of your cruise ship. Tipping is not included on any of our Private Tours, Tailor- Made Itineraries, Short Stays or Extensions, but we will suggest appropriate amounts. Tipping amounts are in USD and subject to change.

ACTIVITY LEVEL Our tours are graded as Comfortable, Moderate and Active, reflecting the level of fitness required. Tour Dossiers are available for all group tours and provide more detailed information on the level of activity required. It is imperative that Tour Dossiers are read and that passengers are able to complete the tour without assistance. In addition to the Tour Dossier, it is highly recommended that passengers traveling on an Active Paced Tour speak to a Destination Specialist to discuss the level of physicality required as well as the passenger’s individual needs in order to confidently book and travel on the tour. Passengers will be asked to sign an Active Tour Waiver.

TRAVEL DOCUMENTS & VISAS A passport with a minimum of six months validity from the intended completion of travel is required for all countries in our program. Visa fees are included for US and Canadian passport holders on Classic Group tours, Discovery Group tours, Premier Collection tours and private tour packages, where applicable. Failure to forward passports to Wendy Wu Tours’ visa service, CIBT, by a specified date may incur fees to cover expedited processing. In addition, a request for expedited visa service will incur an additional charge. It is the passenger’s responsibility to ensure documentation accuracy, passport validity and meeting of necessary visa application guidelines and that all documents are received by CIBT in a timely manner. Please inquire with CIBT for requirements on other legal residency documents.

Wendy Wu Tours accepts no responsibility for a passenger’s delay in forwarding documents. In this regard, it is the responsibility of each passenger to ensure that they meet the necessary visa application guidelines of the country you are visiting and your responsibility to ensure the visa issued to you is correct. While we include the cost of the standard visa application service in your tour price (for US & Canadian passport holders), we will pass on any additional charges incurred. Should your visa application be refused for any reason, you will be liable for all cancellation penalties. Wendy Wu Tours accepts no responsibility for passports or other documents lost or damaged while in the hands of third parties. This includes but not limited to embassies, consulates, courier services and postal services.

IF YOU WISH TO MAKE CHANGES AFTER BOOKING If, after receiving our confirmation, you wish to change your travel arrangements in any way, such as change of departure date or accommodations, we will do our best to make the changes, but it may not be possible.
