Yangtze Cruise Tips from Wendy

  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.

    Hi Wendy,

    You have already done the Chongqing tour we arranged and the Yangtze cruise , so how was this trip overall ? Excellent but it would be good to alert all clients ahead of time regarding the various upgrades and additional tours. Pushing for it at the registration can be quite hassling and uncomfortable.

    Here below are the questions for you:

    1. Was your travel consultant of our company polite and patient to answer your questions? Yes, they are polite and professional

    2. How was your tour? The tour was well organised and the schedule was excellent in terms of timing and breaks in between items.

    3. ??

    4. Do you have any suggestions on improving our service? Do try to improve your selection of wines.

    The Program Director, Dick and River Guide Steven were great.

    With best wishes...

    Dear Wendy,

    I am writing to let yo know that both my husband and I enjoyed our trip to Zhangjiajie. We realized without the Zhangjiajie guide Linda who helped us to navigate the city of Zhangjiajie and has years of experience and expertise not only knowing the parks well, but the taste of the foreign visitors, it would be impossible for us to figure everything out on our own. She made our trip wonderful in a limited days that we had. Pullman Hotel was a great accommodation for us and we did not expect that we could have a such up scale hotel in Zhanjiajie.

    Thanks again.

    Hsiaomei and Leonid

    Hello Wendy,

    my apologies for not doing this sooner but I have been really sick & basically stuck in bed...

    but I have actually got up & written my review in TripAdvisor this morning... I wanted to send you a link after submitting my review but TripAdvisor is not letting me do so at this moment. I guess it is going through the process of submitting written text first & then will be uploaded.

    Wendy, you were such a great help & fantastic to deal with... and you are such a lovely intelligent person - it was an absolute pleasure to work with you on my trip to the Yangtse and that's why I wanted to come & speak with you personally about further travel arrangements.

    I hope you don't mind but I put your photo on my facebook page - hope that is OK.. please let me know if it is not OK... if you can, check it out at facebook******

    Ok once again thankyou for your excellent assistance - you are great :-)

    Kind Regards

    Hi Wendy

    I am writing to say thank you for such a wonderful tour. We had a great time and your organization and your suggestions were perfect.

    I am sorry we didn’t meet. Your guides were all excellent, Andie and Zack, in particular.

    We particularly loved Chengdu and Shanghai though were exhausted by Shanghai, too many late nights and early mornings.

    Thank you for adapting to our needs through the journey.

    We are keen to go Guilin and Tibet at some stage perhaps later this year or next year so would be keen for you to arrange this when the time comes.

    Again thank you.

    Regards

    Hi Wendy:

    We did find the bus to board to travel to the cruise.

    Our room was very comfortable with lots of room.

    The food at all meals was very good.

    We got wifi which was nice and VIP service.

    The shore excursions to the Three Gorges Dam, the ferry on the river and the walk to the red pagoda were all very good and interesting.

    Overall, it was an excellent trip.

    Thank you.

    Dearest Wendy,

    Back home we are enjoying long hours of Bernadette’s video and wondering at the thousands of photo’s shot during our wonderful tour.

    It was indeed a wonderful tour. Wendy and her senior management are to be congratulated.

    The development stage was perfect and during the tour Wendy duly followed us up. When a flight was cancelled you rebooked the hotel and guide.

    All the guides were far above standard.

    • We like to mention that Jason not only brought us to the Beijing station but arranged to come with us in the wagon, taking care of our luggage.

    • When the available time to visit Dazu was reduced to one day only, Charlie helped us to enjoy the rock sculptures. At the end of that day be came with us on the cruise boat making sure that checking in was going smoothly.

    • Ellen picked us up in Hangzhou and was there all the time to meet all our questions and needs. At the end Bernadette called her no longer Ellen but “Chi May” with her real and Chinese name!

    All the planes and trains were booked, not a single problem when boarding. Just showing our passport … and please proceed, hurry up!

    We stayed in two very special hotels. The Imperial Palace in Chengde is a jewel with rosewood furniture. An exceptional design. The JR suite in Pingyao was like living in heaven on earth.

    It was good that we booked the Shangri La’s and Hyatt’s ourselves. You understood. We were indeed most of the time upgraded and enjoyed an “imperial service” in the Shangri La, well in Shangri La! That was helpful when the flight was cancelled.

    We are very sorry not being able to help you with Trip Advisor. We are in a circle of friends travelling a lot but none of us ever speaks to Trip Advisor. In Belgium it is imperative to keep private things indeed private. We are not to be found on Facebook either.

    We remain however available to your senior management to clarify all questions they might want to formulate. Please pass them a copy of this e mail. They should know they are running a solid organisation yielding satisfied tourists.

    It was sheer perfection!

    Many lastings thanks from

    Johan and Bernadette


    September 3, 2015

    Dearest Wendy,

    Yes we are in Shanghai and spent the entire Day in the museum.

    All guides were very good, service in the extreme! Charlie and Ellen are super outstanding!!

    Till next week, And,THANKS

    Johan and Bernadette.

    Hello Wendy,

    At the moment we are in Bhutan.

    About the 11 days Tibet tour you booked for us, I only have one word EXCELLENT.

    In Holland I should give you a 10, which means the highest you can reach.

    As soon as we are back in Holland I mail you some pictures.

    Many thanks for arranging this trip for us.

    Kind regards

    Hello Wendy,

    The boat was really good... very impressed. We were allowed off the boat for a walk whilst optional tours were on, just had to wait one hour after the tour departure.

    Dear Wendy

     

    We were very satisfied with your collaboration. We were also very satisfied with the cruise which was organised perfectly. The train tickets and the guides to help us were all well organised. Especially the guide for the Huangshan tour was very efficient and helpfull and very good English speaking.

    Hi Wendy,

     

    you have been a pleasure to deal with. All your responses were accurate, informative and quick. 

    I will definitely recommend your services to my friends.

    We enjoyed our Cruise thoroughly. We were upgraded to a suite, if you influenced this, thanks very much. The scenery was stunning, the accommodation excellent, the excursions well designed & delivered, and the service first class.

    You have my permission to use my response.

    Hello Wendy, 

     

    You're too fast for me,

    I wanted to write you a little word to thank you for your kind help, But you were first.

    We DID have a very good time during this cruise, And your advises were helpful 

    For real, I read guides before our departure, and some talked about low level boats, And I was a little afraid about what we will find

    I made white hairs for nothing:

    Fine boat

    Fine crew,

    Good food,

    Comfortable cabin, and even good fellows at our table (you choose them for us?)

    I am not sure to do the same cruise again another year, but be quiet about me: if some of my friend ask me for a reliable person to organize a cruise, I will give him your name,

    And if I can help you to become the boss of the Yang tse river Cruises, you can give my mail to your boss or ask him to write me to have confirmation (for free, no need to promise upgrading ha ha ha)

    We don't have your WeChat id, but if you give it to me, I will send you a few photos of the cruise, for technical reasons, it is easier than by mail 

     

    Best regards

    Hi Wendy,

    My husband is planning to provide feedback soon but he has been very busy with his job after returning to Canada.

    We had a wonderful trip in China for Beijing, Xian & Yangtze River cruise Tours and enjoy the culture very much. The guides and drivers were all very professional. You in particular were very responsive to changing needs, such as the inclusion of the two extra Chinese scholars who returned to Canada with us. Thanks again for everything.

    Hi Wendy

    Sorry I have not replied earlier but I had no access to my emails in China. Just got back from Xian. We had a wonderful time on Victoria Grace. The crew were fantastic. Love them all. All the guides were very good and we enjoyed all the excursions. We will certainly go again if we can and will encourage our friends to do so also. Thank you for your work and I look forward to further contact.

    Best wishes
