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.

Hi Jessie,

Home again. Have not forgotten you. As you may have heard our flight to Shanghai was a little disastrous. Because of bad storms in Shanghai we were diverted to Hangzhou where we sat in the plane on the runway for 5 hours before continuing to Shanghai; arriving just after 2:30am. We had not slept now for 26 hours. With difficulty with the language we finally got a taxi and arrived at the hotel at 4am. We later found out that Cathy had waited till about 2am for us. A short sleep till breakfast and Cathy came to pick us up at about 8am to take us to the railway station. The bullet train experience was great as we don't have them in Australia yet. It was worth adding the extra day on our tour.

To answer your questions:

1. How about your tour arrangements?

We definitely like the personal relationship with the tour guides with just the 2 of us and the flexibility. All the arrangements went pretty much as planned. Only minor changes. And were quite satisfactory. We were most impressed with the cruise ship Anna. The cabin, the meals, the entertainment, the excursions, and the friendly staff were all first class. All the hotels you arranged for us were excellent.

(On return to Guilin from Yangzhou we pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to an executive suite for the last night). All our transport was good and excellent drivers. And especially all the guides were good; good English and good education. And looked after us well.

2. Are you willing to recommend our service to those who would like to come to China?

Definitely yes. I took some 1500 photos home, and picked out 200 and put together in an album that I am showing to our friends together with the itinerary and your costing and certainly some have shown interest.

3. Your general opinion on us?

We are very happy with the service that you gave us.

Jessie you were prompt to reply to our varied requests while we developed our itinerary and with excellent suggestions. And your costings were quite fair and reasonable also. It is a pleasure communicating with you. Definitely we do not have any complaints about your service with us.

Finally, once again we would like to thank you most sincerely for your very professional service you have given us. We will certainly tell our friends this, and if we are ever to return to China we will call on you again

Kind Regards

We are 4+ satisfied. The boat staff was great & the cleanliness far exceeded my expectations. We met some wonderful people and we will remember the trip forever.

We're now taking advantage of our privilege to use the Air China 1st class lounge and we fly back to Germany at 0150. We thank you greatly for the super trip. We will tell our friends about our good experience.

Dear Bruce,

Thanks for your email which my husband received yesterday. On behalf of our family I would like to thank you very much for organizing our wonderful and very memorable trip to China. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and loved all places we visited. Your tour guides were very friendly and helpful [we miss them lot]

Give our regards to them all and thankyou once again. Food was nice but would appreciate if there was more variety for vegetarians.

Hi there!

On the day we arrived in Beijing, we were greeted so gracefully by the tour guide and were introduced to what would be a superb tour of what the city has to offer. As it was our first time visiting China, we were a bit weary about how food arrangements will be made. In a country where there is such a vast variety and with us being vegetarians made it even bigger a challenge to find the good examples of Chinese cuisine. It seemed to me like different cities had a different style of cuisine to one another. The food in Beijing was different to Xi'an and Shanghai, and we were introduced to a big platter of vegetarian food. First thing I noticed is how similar some of the flavours were to Indian food, as we eat a lot of spicy food as well! The food was fantastic..no question.

The tour itself was pretty breathtaking, visiting the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Yangtze River and various other museums, temples and palaces along the way gave us a grand insight on Chinese culture. What's more is we had the chance to watch 2 acrobatic shows, one in Beijing and another in Shanghai. Both were absolutely amazing..nothing like I've ever seen before. The guided tours around the more rural streets of China were very interesting to see. The guides were what I was impressed with most though, they were very well-spoken and caring for our needs (especially food) and all in all were very heartfelt in personality.

The Yangtze river cruise felt like an entirely new trip altogether, we sailed past some of the most beautiful scenery I've ever seen. On the ship itself, the rooms were great and we were greeted by some great crew members. On board, I had the chance to have an acupuncture demonstration which was a very invigorating experience. I want to thank Bruce for keeping the itinerary simple and interesting, even allowing to open time for the shows I mentioned. The hotel choices were superb, in fact some of the best hotels I've been to. This trip has convinced me to visit China again in the future and I've learned a whole lot about the traditions and history that this great country has.

I'd like to give a special shout to the tour guides Bruce from Xi'an and Sophia from Beijing, you guys are some wonderful people.

Should we worry about Motion Sickness
Just not sure if we should need motion sickness meds. We are on your cruise that departs from the Yichang Port for Yangtze River from April 24- April 27, 2017. Thank you so much

Dear Mary,

Thanks for taking a Yangtze River cruise with us. April is a great time with fine weather to enjoy the gorgeous scenery along Three Gorges.

No matter which ship you take, it will run very steady at a relatively slow speed. As you know, the construction of Three Gorges Dam controls the water level and flow velocity of Yangtze River that it will be steady to guarantee every ship to sail smoothly. Unlike the ocean cruise, there is no need to bring motion sickness meds for travelers who on Yangtze River cruise. If your physical condition are seasick easily, take some just in case. And no worry, there is a clinic onboard who will serve at any time.

Wish you have a nice journey!
