Why not take the advantages of Ashley's travel experience to design a itinerary just for you, that suits your budget and interests. Her passion to serve you never fades away!

Yangtze Cruise Tips from Ashley

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.

There are different cruise lines to cater different customer demands. Cruising between Chongqing and Wuhan on deluxe ships is the most popular for tourists.

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.

You cruise vacation duration is decided by the ship and itinerary you have chosen and booked.

    The service onboard was very good.

    Yours sincerely,

    Dear Ashley, 

    Our river cruise was delightful. Your Email responses were quick, efficient and you provided complete information that was needed for our reservation and check in for the cruise.

    The service on board was wonderful. We only had about 100 guests on the ship so there were more cruise service people than guests. We received polite, respectful and quick service from everyone. We especially appreciated the two cruise ambassadors who spoke excellent English. This made some special requests easy to accomplish.

    Kind Regards,

    Dear Ashley,

    You were excellent. You were very patient and thorough in answer my many questions. You always replied promptly and courteously.

    The staff of the ship treated us very well I think we were the only English speakers aboard, but they made sure that we always had an English-speaking guide when we went on the excursions. We really appreciated that. The staff were quite pleasant and many spoke excellent English. They were also very well organized.

    I would definitely recommend your company!

    Hi Ashley,

    We found the travel consultant very efficient and all questions were answered to our satisfaction.

    The service on board was very good, we were very happy. One thing that we felt was vastly overpriced was the coffee. We were very disappointed with the quality also.

    We have already recommended your company to family and friends and would gladly use your company ourselves if we have the opportunity in the future.

    Thank you for your new year wishes we wish the same to you and your family

    Dear Ashley,

    I'm fine to provide you with a feedback on your questions; you may put it on your site.

    1. My mails were all answered the next day, I was very pleased with the services of Ms. Ashley He,

    2. The services of the tourguides was fine, all of them service-minded and fairly good Enghlish,

    3. I would recommandeer the company since I was services well.

    Some remarks: After embarking on the Yangtze Gold 1, the crew asked us for upgrading the Cabin from standaard to 4st Floor, and for upgrading from 2nd Floor dining to 6th Floor restaurant. We agreed and were upgraded for 1000 Yuan to a langer cabin on the 4th deck. The 6th floor diningroom was full, which was a pitty since the rood on the 2nd was not great. 

    We were not aware of there upgradabilities in advance, we would have chosen those for sure.

    Thank you for your good services,

    Best Regards,

    Hi Ashley,

    You asked for some feedback about the services your company provided for us in China. Before mentioning detailed feedback, I have to say that you gave us a fantastic holiday. Also, you should know that my wife and I are independent travelers who like to do things for ourselves as far as possible and so are perhaps not typical Western tourists.

    However, we appreciated that China is very different from Europe and so in the time available to us we would have not been able to see so much and get an understanding of modern- day China without the services of your guides.

    For us it was great to know that when we arrived somewhere new there would always be one of your guides waiting for us. It was also good to have you as our guardian angel on WeChat in case anything went wrong such as our delayed flight from Jiayugan to Xi’an. I don’t know how often flights are delayed by nearly 4 hours but this wasn’t really a problem for us because you were able to assure us that our guide, Waldner would be waiting for us.

    Your guides provided us with a great service. Lindsay gave us a great introduction to Beijing, Daniel told us so much about Tibetan culture and gave us an unforgettable visit to the Tibetan museum in Xining. Jessica was so enthusiastic and was a pleasure to be with. Waldner told us much about modern China, David did a great job of showing us Chongqing even though the weather was not so good

    After we got off the cruise ship Amanda gave us a very pleasant afternoon in Yichang where there wasn’t much to see. She was right to suggest that we might not have got our train if we had gone to the Sanyou caves and so arranged an interesting visit to the Yichang museum instead. We were particularly impressed by Jennifer’s knowledge of Wuhan especially the stories she told us which brought the Yellow Crane Pagoda to life.

    After a four-hour train ride to Shanghai it was good to meet Tina who was also helpful in accompanying us to the Airport on the Maglev train.

    We were also impressed with the programme that you organised for us. Generally speaking, it was everything that we wanted although there were some items not on your programme that we did see / would have liked to have seen. These were:

    1. In Beijing we would have liked to have seen the National Museum of China and go up the tower next to the Olympic Park.

    2. In Xining Daniel showed us the Tibetan Culture Museum with it fantastic 620-metre-long prayer scroll. This incredible scroll should be part of any itinerary you offer in Xining.

    3. In my free time in Shanghai I went up the Shanghai Tower which was a much better experience than the Shanghai financial tower we went up as part of our tour. This was not just because it was higher but because, unlike the Financial Centre Tower, the Shanghai Tower had an excellent exhibition of how it was built with many photos of old Shanghai.

    4. We were sorry not see the Urban Planning Exhibition in Shanghai which was closed on the Monday when it was planned we should visit it.

    We are perhaps different from most tourists in that shopping is not our priority. For this reason, some of the shopping experiences that were arranged for us did not add much to our holiday. We do not like the idea of factories and museums that were in fact just tourist shops. In some case such as the Silk Workshop and Tea Museum we had a very interesting explanation of the process but at other places such as the Pearl Museum and Terracotta Warrior workshop we had only a few minutes explanation before being taken to the shop.

    Although it’s only a small thing another thing that spoilt things for us was that at some of the restaurants only a small amount of beer was served, perhaps three mouthfuls, yet at other places were given a full bottle.

    However, the above are only small points and I must stress that your company has given us a fantastic experience of China that we could not have experienced in any other way.

    As well as learning of China’s history the holiday you arranged for us has given us a good understanding of China’s present for which we are very grateful.

    With best wishes and thanks again for all your assistance!

    We contacted Ashley by Mobile whilst travelling in China and requested her to arrange for us to participate in a Yangtze River/Three Gorges Dam Tour in May of this year

    Ashley was incredibly helpful in looking into all our needs. She arranged all facets of our Tour and even contacted us out of office hours when we could not get through to the office. She could not have done anything better or more efficiently than she did for us.

    The service on board the Ship was first class and we had no complaints at all. The Tours were great and very well organised. The only thing we would like to add is to maybe cater for a little bit more Western type meals on board.I will have no hesitation in recommending your Company, and Ashley in particular, to any person I meet in the future who is contemplating a Trip to China

    Thanking you
