Reviews of Yangtze River Cruise
Still not deciding if a Yangtze River Cruise is worth for you? Many of our travellers have experienced a lifetime changing trip and now more than happy to share their stories with you. Check out their memorable Yangtze Cruise reviews and experiences.
Sorry I have so long in thanking you for all of your help planning this trip. We enjoyed the trip, service was immediate, food was good and the scenery in some spot spectacular. We did not get to see the dam due to fog and smog. That was a bid disappointment but not much could be done.
We were treated with great care by the cruise directors and the whole staff. They are a credit to your organization. I would recommend your tour company to anyone.
Once again, thank you.

Yangtze-river-cruises.com did a very great job for us. In my opinion, Yangtze cruise is something you cannot miss in China.
From Yichang to Chongqing, we always called up water; it will take around 3 days, and opposite, called down river, shorter time. And price for the cruise is different, 4 and 5star is good for foreigners, cost between 200-300USD. And in the trip, you will see both history heritage and natural landscape, worthy for your time and money.

We are now back in Melbourne, and would like to provide you with some feedback for the Yangtze tour you arranged.
Both airline flights (Shanghai-Chongqing & Yichang-Shanghai) were one hour late in departing.
Chongqing pick-up & tour – good driver and John was an excellent guide (pandas were a highlight, and ‘hot pot’ dinner was very good).
Victoria cruise – very good, with spectacular views – off-cruise tours (Fengdu, 3 Small Gorges, Dam) were good (guides requested tips).
Yichang – since passengers disembark outside the city, taxis are not readily available. We were able to go to the airport with a couple who had a pre-arranged driver (at our cost).
Thank you again for organising our memorable trip.
We will recommend you to any friends who wish to go on a Yangtze cruise.

We just returned from a ten day package tour in China. We went though www.yangtze-river-cruises.com and our contact was Bruce Tang.
We told him when we would be arriving in Beijing and that we wanted to see the Great Wall, Imperial Palace, Summer Palace, Ming Tombs, Tiananmen Square, etc. in Beijing, then go on to Xian to see the Terracotta Warriors and finish with a Yangtze River Cruise.
They put together an amazing itinerary for us that included all the sites we wanted to see, all hotels, all flights as well as private guides and drivers in each of the four cities (Beijing, Xian, Chongqin and Yichang) we visited. They even added in extra treats such a lunch with a local family and a rickshaw ride in the old part of Beijing, a Peking duck dinner, dumpling dinner and opera in Xian and a trip to a zoo to see the Giant Pandas. All this in 10 days made possible by the 24/7 service of your private guide and driver that were all amazing and at a very reasonable price. We would highly recommend this tour company to anyone visiting China.

We wanted to thank you for all of your help in arranging for our custom tour. We had a great time.
All of our local guides and drivers were on time, professional, very friendly and quite helpful. Of course their English skills varied somewhat. But all were proficient enough for us to understand them (most of the time).
We were especially thankful for the upgraded rooms on the cruise - this made it so much more enjoyable for us all.
I will not hestitate to contact you again for any future China trips. I will certainly recommend your company to others.
Following is the review from another group member, Kathy:
Thank you for your help in putting this great trip together for us. Jack works very hard researching and getting the best people to make our experiences most pleasant. He has succeeded once again.
Hope all is well with you....and thank you again.

I'm home again. Thanks a lot for the service. It makes travelling in China much more effective and easier. Yoyo was really good. The Beijing driver, too. I can’t say a lot really on the other guides/drivers. The ship was somehow a bit old, but still ok. But best of all was your personal help - thanks a lot for it. I sure will be your customer whenever I come to China again.

My husband and I had a wonderful Yangtze River cruise, many thanks for your help in booking it. The weather was good, the food was delicious and the co-travelers were very friendly. I can recommend your assistance to anyone considering a cruise in future.
Mr. Tsoi from Yichang was very conscientious picking us up and driving us to Yichang railway station for our train to Zhangjiajie.
We wish you another successful year in the tourism business! We will be recommending your services to other people.

Our group of four went on the Century Diamond Cruise Ship in last mid-October. I do not know how it could have been better. I am open to a variety of foods so the supper dishes had many items that I really enjoyed. The breakfast buffets were always filled with an enormous, tasty variety. The stops were always well-organized. Every guide that we had at the stops clearly spoke English and knew the material often adding little humorous touches.The staff on the ship itself could only be described as "top-notch." Everyone was so courteous. A person has to understand that the region often has a haze. (Much of the Asian art is hazy for a reason.) That haze was there sometimes, but that is part of China. I would recommend this cruise ship to anyone.
