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.
Our Yangtze River cruise was everything I expected it to be and more. Our cruise tour, which included a pre-cruise visit to Beijing and a post-cruise stay in Shanghai, is only one of your China itineraries, all of which center around a gorgeous cruise on the Yangtze. We'll definitely recommend your service and cruise to all of our friends.

We have just come back from China, we did, Beijing, Shanghai, Wuhon, Yangtze River cruise 4 nights, Chongqing, Xian, Beijing. The trip down the Yangtze was the most relaxing part of a very hectic schedule. The scenery is amazing especially through the gorges and just to see the 'small' towns 'only 5 million pop.' on the banks is an education. The passage through the Ship lock I found fascinating and the scale of the engineering has to be admired, it is immense. The level of the water is due to rise again in the next 4 weeks so more of the gorge will be flooded, but it will still be spectacular.
I think the boat I took "Dragon Cruises Emperor" was very clean and well maintained with your friendly staff. Food was good except the 2nd night dinner was so so.
Couldn't really recommend the first ghost town excursion (Just too hot). The second up with the formerly naked trekkers was very fun - maybe the highlight. The water in Shennonen is so much cleaner than the Yangtze. The locks were neat but it was like 1AM when the door shut behind us and 4 other boat. Way pasy 2 by the time we lowered and passed through the gate opening in front of us.
The little ride from the locks to Yichang may have been the most scenic...water at the "normal" level with undisplaced villages was a nice change of pace.
The excursion to the dam was weak. It was foggy and you couldn't walk across the top of it.
Victoria Cruises - highly recommended. Very modern, clean and totally geared to the comfort of her passengers.(Canadian owned)
Yes, the scenery through the 3 Gorges was spectacular, even the second time round. ( I went on the Yangtze River Cruise BEFORE its first flooding and again AFTER ) The boat trip through the Lesser 3 Gorges was equally great, but the Shennong River Cruise today, runs through some beautiful scenery too. We stopped at Shibaozhai (2nd trip) which to me, was better than Fengdu (1st trip).
We took a van from Qingtian to Wenzhou airport (1-1/2 hours), then flew from Wenzhou to Wuhan (80 minutes), and then took a van 4-1/2 hours to Yichang to catch our boat for the start of our Yangtze River 3 Gorges (Chang Jiang San Sha) cruise. We lucked out, because the holiday ended the day before and the boat was only ½ full, so the presidential suite was available. So we upgraded ourselves to that and enjoyed a luxurious room on the boat for 4 nights as we cruised through the 3 gorges. We spent a lot of time in our room, playing cards and mahjong.
