Yangtze Cruise Tips from Jack
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.
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.
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.
How long is the cruise vacartion?
You cruise vacation duration is decided by the ship and itinerary you have chosen and booked.

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
October 18, 2015
We did enjoy the trip and posted pictures on social media. many of friends liked the same and if they ask me I would definitely recommend you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
SwissSeptember 21, 2016
Thank you for all your arrangement.
We have enjoyed our day tours in Xi'an and Wuhan very much. We are also very happy about the pick up arrangements and the cruise. All thanks to your efforts and very much appreciated.

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.

Despite the changes due to natural disasters, it was an excellent trip.
Thanks so much for your great service

We are enjoying the cruise very much. The room is spacious and nice the crew very friendly, the food exceptional, and we just came back from a magnificent dance performance of members of the crew. We had a super interesting excursion. Thank you thank you!
November 14, 2016
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,

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.
