Yesterday Wendy Wu Tours founder Wendy Wu hosted key industry partners for a fabulous celebration of the operator’s 25th anniversary.
The enthusiastic Wu outlined the company’s stellar trajectory after initially being established as an exclusively China specialist in a small suburban office in the Sydney suburb of Epping and now growing to a major multinational global tour operator.
While painful, the pandemic has also ultimately led to strong growth for Wendy Wu Tours, which added new destinations such as Portugal, Georgia and Armenia which have proven exceptionally popular, while the reopening of Japan has seen the company already surge beyond 2019 booking levels.
“We want to thank you for all the support you have given us, the airlines, the tourism boards and of course the wonderful travel agents who we cannot live without,” she enthused.
Wu highlighted the company’s new arrangement with the Chinese Tourism Board in Sydney which enables it to complete visa forms and submit passports on behalf of clients “just like the good old days”.
“That means our travel agent friends can just sell, sell sell.
“Wendy Wu Tours is like a phoenix rising out of the ashes of COVID…we flew up like a phoenix, and I want to fly with all of you for another 25 years,” she said.
