Yangtze Cruise Tips from Jack

  1. When is the best time to have a Yangtze River cruise?

    The "best" depends on which you are more concerned about, weather or price. To most visitors,the bestRed Leaves in Yangtze River Autumnseasons for Yangtze Cruise should be the Spring and Autumn, namely, April to June and September to November when the weather is cool and comfortable, neither cold nor hot.

  2. Which cruise line should I choose?

    There are different cruise lines to cater different customer demands. Cruising between Chongqing and Wuhan on deluxe ships is the most popular for tourists.

  3. Should I take a upstream or downstream cruise?

    Upstream means sailing from lower part of river to the up to the higher part of the river.Less cost, and it usually costs 10%-30% lower than that of downstream and more time onboard for leisure activities, Chinese folk customs, etc. Downstream mean sailing from higher part of the river to the lower part of the river. There is enough time to enjoy the shore excursions because all scenic sites are arranged in the daytime.

  4. How long is the cruise vacartion?

    You cruise vacation duration is decided by the ship and itinerary you have chosen and booked.

    Hello Jack.

    We were very happy on the century emerald. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The land tours where perfectly organized and interesting. Only the visit in the 3 gorges project was insufficient. Bad weather ( not yours) and missing the most interesting point ( the technik and the view from the low point of the wall.) We would however recommend the tour with you to our friends.

    So long

    The trip was wonderful. Very well organized and good guides. It was exhausting travel, especially from Yichang to Zhangjiajie. The sleeper car was not so clean, but I realize that was the first class car on that train.

    All the guides were excellent. Very helpful and eager to please.

    Thank you for your help

    Hi Jack,

    The cruise was great! We loved it and we found it very relaxing, and a great way to see some beautiful sights. You were so helpful in helping us plan our trip, would I be able to recommend your name and e-mail address to people in the future who would like to plan their holidays with you?



    Mar.01, 2015

    Good morning Jake,

    We have arrived home and can’t THANK YOU enough the trip you organized and planed for us, was the best ever. All 6 of us thank you, everything went to time and all the drivers and tour guides were terrific.

    The vans that picked us up were clean and had good air conditioning. The tour guides spoke clear English and very helpful, they knew a lot about your country .

    We could not fault a thing, it was a 10 out of 10 for all of us,the other 2 couples said that it was the best holiday they have done I agree.

    We would be recommending you to all our family and friends.

    I hope one day to come back with my children and grandchildren.

    You have a beautiful country and lovely people.

    They Yangzi River cruise was a high light and the ship was great I would recommend the Century Legend it was so quit and comfortable to travel on, we upgraded to the 6 floor[ dinning] and that was the best thing we did.

    Thank you and hope to do business with you again one day.

    Helen, Fay and Wally were all terrific tour guides and very helpful , would recommend them.

    Many thanks,

    Hello Jack,

    We enjoy the cruise but it's a shame that you don't provide a light meal the first day, registered between 18 and 20h1/2. The captain diner was a mistake, poor service, cold food... petty because the waiters where very friendly.

    The visit of the dam is a shdow of a visit, too far away, no seen on the spot and the pseudo entry through the visiter center is a jocke.

    Days 2 and 3 were a good experience, nice scenary, nice people.

    Best regards.

    Hello, Jack!

    It's very funny... but now it's ok

    The only pity was locks out of order - for me locks is very interesting part of river cruising and l've seen a lot in Russia and Europe

    So, Jack, thank you very much, l really left a piece of my heart in China!

    Kindest regards,

    Hi Jack

    We are back home in Australia now.

    The cruise was great. Wonderful scenery, interesting sights and a well organised ship. We were especially happy with the service received from the on board guide, Elissa, who made sure that we knew and understood what was going on and having English speaking guides at each of the side trips made the cruise all the more enjoyable and interesting. The accommodation was quite satisfactory and as expected. Service was good and we found the beds quite comfortable which was not our experience in many of the hotels where the beds were extremely firm to rock hard. The cabin temperature was a little to hot but with the ability to leave the balcony doors open, we were able to have a comfortable nights sleep.

    Many thanks for your effort in arranging the cruise for us and keeping us informed.

    We would have no hesitation in recommending Yangtze River Cruises and Yangtze Gold Cruise vessels to others.

    Good day Jack,

    Overall the trip at Yangtze Cruises is ok. Thanks for the arrangement.

    Hi Jack,

    Well, here it is, just a little over a month since our amazing trip to China and Hong Kong. We are still talking about it, people are still asking about it, and we wish we had more pictures and a journal to document our experiences. We must remember that the next time.

    We have not submitted information regarding the services provided by China Discovery during our trip. I would like to work on that, however, I need the names of our tour guides to help my memory. Would you please send me the first name of all our guides you provided on our tour? I made comments for every survey that each guide gave us. I hope they turned them in to you. Anyway, I will wait for you to email me their names so I can respond to the survey. Yes, if there is any comment or advice in my survey response which could be of help to your company, then please use it in your advertisement. As for pictures, we will send them if we feel they are striking and worth publishing.

    Thank you again for an awesome tour! We will be sure to use your services whenever we are in Asia.

    Dear Jack,

    We are back home, happy with the trip we had in China.

    Our 'Evaluation Form' is attached.

    Thank you so much for all arrangements you have made on our behalf.

    We hope to meet you in person during our next trip to Beijing.

    Best regards,



    September 25, 2015

    Hi Jack,

    I'm sorry I have not written before to thank you for arranging the cruise. It was so good of you to contact us in Shanghai to say the plans had changed and we got the bus OK to Nanjing. We had a wonderful time and we're really pleased to have booked the suite room as it was very comfortable for our stay on board the Victoria Sophia. We had some really enjoyable trips too, and I enjoyed the walking along the Yangtze very much.

    Thank you Jack. I will keep your contact details because perhaps you can help with another China trip next year.

    Yours gratefully,

    Dear jack,

    I am sorry I have taken so long to write. June and I did not return to Canberra until 18th and since then until today I have had a problem with my computer. We had a wonderful cruise. Everything went well and we enjoyed all we saw and learned about that amazing 3 Gorges project. We enjoyed the cruise and found the crew all helpful and friendly. Yes there was a small delay at Yichang but that did not matter. We were well cared for by the cruise Director and Hotel Manager on the ship until our transport arrived. They also spoke to you. We were not put out or worried about that short delay. Thank you so much for your organization of our cruise and for the transport connections. Our visit to Shanghai also went well and we have had a lovely holiday.

    Yours sincerely

    Margaret and June

    Hi, Jack!

    It was wonderful, one of the very best parts of the trip. All of my travelers loved it. The facilities aboard ship, the food, and the entertainment were splendid, and we loved the shore excursions. The Gorges were beautiful, of course.

    Thank you so much for creating this unforgettable experience!


    April 24, 2016

    Hi Jack

    We really enjoyed our Yangtze Cruise on Victoria Anna. The boat was really good – not too crowded and the rooms were clean and comfortable with nice big glass doors to see the views. The included activities were fun, and we also enjoyed going ashore on our own when we could despite being told in the daily notes that we couldn’t! We enjoyed meeting the other guests seated at our table, and the food was plentiful and pleasant. We were lucky with the weather – although it was quite hot, it didn’t actually rain during our trip. It was great being able to sit out on the covered deck in front of the Yangtze Club and watch the passage through the gorges with a nice breeze blowing to keep us cool.

    We would definitely recommend a cruise on Victoria Anna to our friends and family.

    Kind regards

    KoreaJune 13, 2016

    Hi Jack,

    We had a great time. We were only 2 of 6 foreigners (there were 350 passengers) but they had a few English speaking crew. 

    The food was satisfactory and plentiful. The views were fantastic. All in all a great experience. 



    June 21, 2016

    Hi Jack.

    The tour was very good. I especially liked he 3 gorges museum.   

    Also added a visit to another old building. The sign called it the Huguang Guild house. That was the highlight.

    Tour guide was very enthusiastic about Chongqing and all the reasons I should come back.  

    Thank you.

    Hi Jack,

    As an online travel agent, you were very helpful by offering great service and reasonable prices. Thanks for your organization of several trips for me in China (e.g., Yellow Mountain, Beijing and Yangtze River cruise) and your advice and support were just great. The arrangement of car, guide, hotels, transportation and food was perfect and the prices were very good. I will recommend you to all my friends. Thanks again.


    September 21, 2016

    Hi Jack,

    I’m back in Canada - the tour was good, exactly as promised, the boat was in good shape, the staff friendly, the food was good and varied and the drink packages were good value for money. There was a good mixture of western and Chinese and the crew managed to provide good communication for the projects. The scenery and trips were good and the crew night performances were excellent.

    Hello Jack,

    I'm sorry that I have not been able to reply earlier but often I find my personal email is not easy to use when I am in China.

    Our Yangtze Cruise went like a dream. The transfers worked well & we were able to spend some time on a short tour of the center of Chongqing which we had not anticipated. The Century Paragon was a beautiful experience. Everything was spotlessly clean and well presented. The tours were very good (we did not take the optional extra trips). At the end of the cruise our guide transferred us to Yichang SanXia airport in good time for our flight to Hangzhou.

    We would like to thank you for all the smooth arrangements and will definitely be recommending your services to our friends.

    Best regards

    Dear Jack,

    The weather wasn't great, but the rest was fine.

    We were offered a discounted upgrade to suite on arrival, which we accepted. The cruise and sights were interesting, the food and service were good. We enjoyed the private forward-facing balcony. All in all, very enjoyable.

    Everything went great, we had no problems finding the boat, the room was perfect and the trip went smoothly. We joined all the shore excursions and had no problems.

    Thanks for everything.

    Dear Jack Li,

    We enjoyed the river cruise much. The staff on board was very engaged and the scenery was in spite of some rain and clouds impressive. The presentation of the Chinese medicine by the ship doctor has been of special interest for us. Everything went as it should!

    Hi Jack

    We have finally reached our new home in Kazakhstan after a month of traveling by train all the way from Saigon, Vietnam.

    Without a doubt our Yangtze River cruise was the highlight of the trip and highly recommended. Not only is the scenery breathtaking, but the staff on board the Victoria Selina went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Everything from food to daily excursions left nothing to want.

    Thanks once again.

    Hi Jack,

    I just got back from China after almost three weeks there. After the Yangtze River cruise I joined a tour with my sister and went to Xi'an and Shanghai.

    The cruise and the sleeper train that you arranged for us went very well. The cruise was beautiful and we had English speaking guides on the two excursions. We managed very well taking taxis to and from airports, cruise ports and train stations.

    Thank you for making the arrangements! I would recommend you to friends going to China and if I go back I will contact you again.

    I will be writing a trip advisor review shortly to recommend your services to any one that is wishing for a great tour of the Yangtze. I had a wonderful time and can not thank you enough for all your help. I was extremely excited to be able to pass through the ship locks and the scenery was amazing!  Overall the trip, accommodations, and transfer service was exceptional.

    Thank you again for everything and best regards,

    Hello Jack,

    I want to give my compliments. The driver picked me up promptly at 5:00 am and not only did he help with my luggage and get my ticket, he waited with me since the train station was completely empty at that early hour. Extremely polite young man. I have arrived in Yichang and look forward to exploring the city before the cruise on Sunday. So far Yangtze River Cruises has provided exceptional service and made my travels very easy. I look forward to writing a positive review on trip advisor so that others who wish to travel to China will not fear and use your travel company.

    Thank you for all the help.
