Yangtze Cruise Tips from Jack
See What My Customers Say & See!
Thank you Jack and staff of Chengdu Bamboo for helping to arrange for our cruise to Yangtze River with Century cruise. He also provided me with the information needed to ensure a safe trip and timely trip there.
My elderly parents and I enjoyed our cruise onboard Century Oasis. The sights are beautiful and the attractions well organised.
SingaporeNov 27, 2023
My wife and I wish to thank you for your recommendation. We also want to compliment the crew and the management of the cruise company. The ship is beautiful and the service is outstanding. We have now been here for 24 hours and are enjoying every minute on the boat and the tours. It has beyond our highest expectations so far.
Once again, thank you for your patience and dedication through the whole process. Kindly convey our appreciation and gratitude to the management and crew of the vessel and the owners.
Yours very sincerely
NorwayNov 22, 2023
I just want to let you know that we had a fantastic cruise tour with Century Victory and its highly competent and kind staff.
The cabin was very fine, so was the restaurant and the excursions. We chose the ship lift tour in the end which was also amazing.
Once again thank you so much for your assistance in making this tour possible.

We had a great time thank you. We were grateful for the upgraded cabins. We enjoyed the underwater museum and evening show excursions very much. The sky road was also enjoyable. The lesser three gorges excursion was quite long, if we had known how long it was going to be we may have decided to skip it, or at least go prepared with drinks etc.
The lead tour guide on board was great. Although we were a bit disappointed there was no real farewell. The final day felt very rushed. It seemed like there was more to do at the three gorges dam like the underwater gallery but we didn't have the time to see it.
The service onboard was very good. Very attentive staff. Given the price I would have expected a bit better quality food. The select was good but often the buffet items had gone cold and weren't replaced with fresh. I think a better selection of wines, including a nicer house wine would help attract more western guests too.
Hope that's helpful.

Dear Jack, good morning!
Glad to see you! Thank you for your mail!
The trip was great! Really well organised!
Additional THANK YOU to the manager of the boat called Alina who took the special care about us.
RussiaAug 14, 2023
Our trip isn't over yet, but I wanted to thank you for making it possible. It has been a very interesting trip and the big difference was made by the great Victoria Sabrina. Excellent service, very friendly crew, very good English and everything has been great. This is also what I think of your work, thank you very much and we will recommend and continue to use your services in the future. We appreciate your work.

I hope you and your family are safe and I hear that in China things are getting better.
I wish you all the best,

Thank you Jack for your email advising on corona virus and updating on the status of the virus in China. We are also following the case not only in China but all over the world. We hope that a vaccine is found soon so that the economy can return to normal. I can understand that the tourist industry is hard hit and hope that China Discovery/Tibet Discovery is able to maintain its operation until this problem is resolved.
Glad that you have read the ongseokkim website. If you so wish, recommend it to your colleagues, friends, family, etc to read. As my father's original root and thus my root is China, our history may be of interest to people in China especially those with surname of Wang.
With peace and harmony

I hear China continues to recovery from the Virus. I'm happy to hear that and hope you remain well.
The US has begun to respond strongly to the outbreak. Asking all people to work from home if possible, closing businesses, cancelling large gatherings, closing schools. My company has asked us to work from home so I am working from home for the next 4 weeks. Unfortunately, testing is not available unless the person has symptoms, recently traveled, and is at high risk. They are working on releasing more test kits and slowing the spread of the virus. My thoughts are with Italy and other countries that are fighting this terrible virus.
My best wishes to you and the people of China for you continued recovery.
Mar 18, 2020
Thank you for your thoughtful help and advice at this time. Much appreciated. We are happy that things in China have improved and you and all Chinese are an example to the rest of us. Soon it’ll be the anniversary of our holiday in China. We frequently look at the photos and remember all the beauty we saw and the kindness of the people. Brendan and I are being very cautious. Our daughter lives with us and she is very caring and amusing and we cannot ask for more. Our leader, Leo Varadkar Is an exceptional person whom we trust and appreciate. This too will pass. I hope you and your family are all well. Also the excellent company you work with will no doubt emerge again and will we wish you all the best. Kindest regards.
Honora and Brendan.

TQ for good advice. Hope all of you and family at ChinaDiscovery are fine.
Here in Malaysia, the number of cases are increasing .Our government had just ordered a lockdown for two weeks-no travel outside home except for emergencies and for food.Except for essential services , all businesses also closed. Hopefully it will not have to be extended after that.
MalaysiaMar 18, 2020
We loved it! We will definitely do it again if we go back to china. The book was lovely, the staff was great, scenery was gorgeous and we loved the entertainment. Wish it could have been longer.
Nov 10, 2019
Could you please pass on our appreciation and thanks to Management and staff at Yangtze River Cruises?
My wife and myself have just completed a cruise from Chongqing to Yichang on 7/10/2019. We wish to say that the cruise was excellent. The land excursions were excellent and interesting.
With regard to the Victoria Jenna, the ship was clean, and ALL crew were very helpful, courteous and friendly and in our opinion did there jobs in an excellent manner.
We also enjoyed the food and the amenities on board.
A big thank you to YRC for the excellent way they handled our booking and the prompt attention to our inquiries along the way.
The Yangtze Cruise was one of the highlights of our trip to China and will always be remembered.
Keep up the good work, we will always, when the opportunity arises recommend YRC and the Victoria Jenna to any of our friends looking for a cruise on the beautiful Yangtze.
Oct 30, 2019
We had a very nice time in China.
We filled in all the different feedbackforms allready.
To make a Trip to Longji, it could help to know in advance, that in makes sence to bring a small bag.
The most important information for you is to know, that everything was perfectly organized.
Thank you very much
Oct 11, 2019
We loved the cruise. The staff was awesome. We felt very special. There was great service and wonderful food. Steven was particularly helpful. We saw the doctor and he was knowledgeable and made us feel at ease when Dave was ill. The scenery was breathtaking.
I will pass your name on to others.
Oct 10, 2019
My wife and I had a fantastic time on the Yangtze Explorer. We enjoyed the tour very much. We particularly liked our cabin, the fantastic service, and we really enjoyed the cruise across the 3 gorges.
We will definitely be recommending this to our friends.
Oct 10, 2019
I was going to email you when I got home to say thank you very much - it was a very good trip and with hindsight my only regret is not doing a longer trip to include mount kailsdh and possibly lake namtso.
They changed the itinerary so I left for Everest a day early and I think the original plan would have been better with one more day to acclimatise, but luckily I was ok and we were lucky with the weather - we saw the top of Everest at night and the bottom of Everest in the morning.
So I would very much recommend the trip to anyone. The guides were nice and everything worked perfectly.
Thank you very much for all your help. I will look at the chengdu bamboo site when I get home to see what else you offer - I still have about 4 or 5 further Chinese itineraries to work out.
Sep 17, 2019
Indeed the cruise was a very nice experience. The service staff on the ship was excellent as was the food.
All in all a experience to be recommended to family and friends.
Have a great day.
Jun 11, 2019
I would like to say thank you for assisting me on the tour arrangements.
The hotel (Glenview ITC Plaza) that you recommended is very well located and has a very nice room.
Tour guides (David and Fei) are friendly and very helpful.
Overall trip is satisfied.
Hope to deal with you again in the future.
MalaysiaJan 07, 2019
Many thanks for organising a wonderful holiday. All the guides were kind and friendly especially Lingzy in Beijing, David in Lhasa, Yuti in Chongqing and Zhou Fei in Yichang. Tours and activities were well organised. Flights went fine and hotels were good although wifi was terrible in all places.
Airport collection and drop off at Lhasa should be better and it would have been helpful if you had emailed Airport Hotel in Beijing with Chinese characters.
Nov 03, 2018
We've been so busy after coming back home. After ending the tour we were for a few days in Shanghai in a conference and then for a week in Athens with the same purpose. We had a wonderful time in China and want to thank you for the tour. The organization was wonderful, all meetings for transfers and for tours were on time, in nice cars with nice guides. All guides were good specially Gila in Shengdu. The hotels were nice, Xian was just amazing. We enjoyed the Yangtsee trip, cabin was confortable.
The guide at the dam was very good with great English.
We would have changed the last day, we had many hours of waiting at the airport for the flight to Shanghai, Amanda was in a hurry to leave us at the airport, we could have done something if suggested beforehand.
Anyway you have a great country and we will certainly recommend the tour.
All the best

Hello Jack Li,
We really enjoyed the cruise, great food, staff , very clean and English speaking. They tried to upgrade us, we didn't and it wasn't necessary.
Jul 08, 2018
Great trip great staff great guides and great entertainment. Very informative and Shirley was great.
Thanks a million
Jul 02, 2018
Thank you very much for helping me organizing our trip so successful and smoothly. One word to said it all “excellent “. You and your company will be highly recommend by me to my friends and colleagues. Again, thank you for everything.
May 30, 2018
We really enjoyed the cruise. The boat, food, crew and tours were excellent. Thanks for making our booking.
May 23, 2018
So good to hear from you! Yes I came back to Canada on April 22 and am still adjusting the time difference.
Thanks for your help. We had a very good cruise down the Yangtze River. Everything went as planned. We were very much impressed by the smooth operation by the ship crew, despite of the large number of passengers. One thing particularly surprised us was that passengers could board the ship as soon as they come in, which does not happen often in China. This has eliminated the long lines and waiting. All the shore excursions were well-organized without a glitch. Unfortunately the weather was wet but that did not damper our enjoyment with all the sightseeing. The food onboard was also very good. We also appreciated it very much that your group had actively made contact with the ship in advance to fix the transportation to the Yichang train station. Because the delay caused by the tour to the Three Gorge Dam, we thought we were going to miss the train to Zhangjiajie. But the two ladies sent by your agency did a great job to rush us to the train station. Not only they came very early waiting for us, they even called the train station to find out details of the layout of the train station so that we could go straight to our train without any delay. Because of their all-out efforts, we got to the train station some 20 minutes ahead of the time, which was absolutely impressive. If we are ever going back to China to visit your area, I know which travel agency to use.
Please extend our sincere gratitude to those ladies and please feel free to use my comments on any of your promotion info material as you see fit.
May 01, 2018
It was one of the best trips we have ever made in China. My whole family enjoyed every single hour of it. It was impressive, exciting but also quite relaxing at the same time. We would definitely recommend to those who are interested in ancient history, who enjoy beautiful nature landscape and can value the great engineering achievements in bending the power of the fascinating Jangtze!
Apr 13, 2018
We were very happy on the century emerald. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The land tours where perfectly organized and interesting. Only the visit in the 3 gorges project was insufficient. Bad weather ( not yours) and missing the most interesting point ( the technik and the view from the low point of the wall.) We would however recommend the tour with you to our friends.
GermanyJan 30, 2018
The trip was wonderful. Very well organized and good guides. It was exhausting travel, especially from Yichang to Zhangjiajie. The sleeper car was not so clean, but I realize that was the first class car on that train.
All the guides were excellent. Very helpful and eager to please.
Thank you for your help
USADec 29, 2017
All went very well, the service at the cruise ship was superb and Wendy organized ZJJ very well indeed.
Appreciate all the coordination and your follow up.
Dec 03, 2017
The cruise was great! We loved it and we found it very relaxing, and a great way to see some beautiful sights. You were so helpful in helping us plan our trip, would I be able to recommend your name and e-mail address to people in the future who would like to plan their holidays with you?
Oct 18, 2017
Good morning Jake,
We have arrived home and can’t THANK YOU enough the trip you organized and planed for us, was the best ever. All 6 of us thank you, everything went to time and all the drivers and tour guides were terrific.
The vans that picked us up were clean and had good air conditioning. The tour guides spoke clear English and very helpful, they knew a lot about your country .
We could not fault a thing, it was a 10 out of 10 for all of us,the other 2 couples said that it was the best holiday they have done I agree.
We would be recommending you to all our family and friends.
I hope one day to come back with my children and grandchildren.
You have a beautiful country and lovely people.
They Yangzi River cruise was a high light and the ship was great I would recommend the Century Legend it was so quit and comfortable to travel on, we upgraded to the 6 floor[ dinning] and that was the best thing we did.
Thank you and hope to do business with you again one day.
Helen, Fay and Wally were all terrific tour guides and very helpful , would recommend them.
Jul 26, 2017
It was more than great.
Special Gracie did organize everything perfect.
Gave the best advice
Dinner, lunch and breakfast were good .
Thanks a lot.
I will tell my friends,
Jul 10, 2017
We enjoy the cruise but it's a shame that you don't provide a light meal the first day, registered between 18 and 20h1/2. The captain diner was a mistake, poor service, cold food... petty because the waiters where very friendly.
The visit of the dam is a shdow of a visit, too far away, no seen on the spot and the pseudo entry through the visiter center is a jocke.
Days 2 and 3 were a good experience, nice scenary, nice people.
SwitzerlandMay 09, 2017
It's very funny... but now it's ok
the whole trip was awesome, ererything - the ship, the crew, excursions,servises l loved so much
Nature and surroundings were amazing and l've learned a lot about China
The only pity was locks out of order - for me locks is very interesting part of river cruising and l've seen a lot in Russia and Europe
So, Jack, thank you very much, l really left a piece of my heart in China!
Apr 26, 2017
We are back home in Australia now.
The cruise was great. Wonderful scenery, interesting sights and a well organised ship. We were especially happy with the service received from the on board guide, Elissa, who made sure that we knew and understood what was going on and having English speaking guides at each of the side trips made the cruise all the more enjoyable and interesting. The accommodation was quite satisfactory and as expected. Service was good and we found the beds quite comfortable which was not our experience in many of the hotels where the beds were extremely firm to rock hard. The cabin temperature was a little to hot but with the ability to leave the balcony doors open, we were able to have a comfortable nights sleep.
Many thanks for your effort in arranging the cruise for us and keeping us informed.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Yangtze River Cruises and Yangtze Gold Cruise vessels to others.

Good day Jack,
Overall the trip at Yangtze Cruises is ok. Thanks for the arrangement.
Dec 07, 2016
Well, here it is, just a little over a month since our amazing trip to China and Hong Kong. We are still talking about it, people are still asking about it, and we wish we had more pictures and a journal to document our experiences. We must remember that the next time.
We have not submitted information regarding the services provided by China Discovery during our trip. I would like to work on that, however, I need the names of our tour guides to help my memory. Would you please send me the first name of all our guides you provided on our tour? I made comments for every survey that each guide gave us. I hope they turned them in to you. Anyway, I will wait for you to email me their names so I can respond to the survey. Yes, if there is any comment or advice in my survey response which could be of help to your company, then please use it in your advertisement. As for pictures, we will send them if we feel they are striking and worth publishing.
Thank you again for an awesome tour! We will be sure to use your services whenever we are in Asia.
Dec 05, 2016
We are back home, happy with the trip we had in China.
Our 'Evaluation Form' is attached.
Thank you so much for all arrangements you have made on our behalf.
We hope to meet you in person during our next trip to Beijing.
Nov 26, 2016
I'm sorry I have not written before to thank you for arranging the cruise. It was so good of you to contact us in Shanghai to say the plans had changed and we got the bus OK to Nanjing. We had a wonderful time and we're really pleased to have booked the suite room as it was very comfortable for our stay on board the Victoria Sophia. We had some really enjoyable trips too, and I enjoyed the walking along the Yangtze very much.
Thank you Jack. I will keep your contact details because perhaps you can help with another China trip next year.

I am sorry I have taken so long to write. June and I did not return to Canberra until 18th and since then until today I have had a problem with my computer. We had a wonderful cruise. Everything went well and we enjoyed all we saw and learned about that amazing 3 Gorges project. We enjoyed the cruise and found the crew all helpful and friendly. Yes there was a small delay at Yichang but that did not matter. We were well cared for by the cruise Director and Hotel Manager on the ship until our transport arrived. They also spoke to you. We were not put out or worried about that short delay. Thank you so much for your organization of our cruise and for the transport connections. Our visit to Shanghai also went well and we have had a lovely holiday.
Margaret and June
Sep 21, 2016
It was wonderful, one of the very best parts of the trip. All of my travelers loved it. The facilities aboard ship, the food, and the entertainment were splendid, and we loved the shore excursions. The Gorges were beautiful, of course.
Thank you so much for creating this unforgettable experience!
Aug 05, 2016
We really enjoyed our Yangtze Cruise on Victoria Anna. The boat was really good – not too crowded and the rooms were clean and comfortable with nice big glass doors to see the views. The included activities were fun, and we also enjoyed going ashore on our own when we could despite being told in the daily notes that we couldn’t! We enjoyed meeting the other guests seated at our table, and the food was plentiful and pleasant. We were lucky with the weather – although it was quite hot, it didn’t actually rain during our trip. It was great being able to sit out on the covered deck in front of the Yangtze Club and watch the passage through the gorges with a nice breeze blowing to keep us cool.
We would definitely recommend a cruise on Victoria Anna to our friends and family.
Andrew and Linda Norton

Yes, the Yangtze River Cruise was meaningful and interesting. it was a wonderful trip!!
KoreaJul 19, 2016
We had a great time. We were only 2 of 6 foreigners (there were 350 passengers) but they had a few English speaking crew.
The food was satisfactory and plentiful. The views were fantastic. All in all a great experience.
Jun 21, 2016
The tour was very good. I especially liked he 3 gorges museum.
Also added a visit to another old building. The sign called it the Huguang Guild house. That was the highlight.
Tour guide was very enthusiastic about Chongqing and all the reasons I should come back.
Jun 13, 2016
We did enjoy the trip and posted pictures on social media. many of friends liked the same and if they ask me I would definitely recommend you.
Apr 25, 2016
The cruise was very good. It did meet my expectations. Many thanks for helping out.
Apr 24, 2016
As an online travel agent, you were very helpful by offering great service and reasonable prices. Thanks for your organization of several trips for me in China (e.g., Yellow Mountain, Beijing and Yangtze River cruise) and your advice and support were just great. The arrangement of car, guide, hotels, transportation and food was perfect and the prices were very good. I will recommend you to all my friends. Thanks again.
Nov 27, 2015
I’m back in Canada - the tour was good, exactly as promised, the boat was in good shape, the staff friendly, the food was good and varied and the drink packages were good value for money. There was a good mixture of western and Chinese and the crew managed to provide good communication for the projects. The scenery and trips were good and the crew night performances were excellent.
Nov 09, 2015
I'm sorry that I have not been able to reply earlier but often I find my personal email is not easy to use when I am in China.
Our Yangtze Cruise went like a dream. The transfers worked well & we were able to spend some time on a short tour of the center of Chongqing which we had not anticipated. The Century Paragon was a beautiful experience. Everything was spotlessly clean and well presented. The tours were very good (we did not take the optional extra trips). At the end of the cruise our guide transferred us to Yichang SanXia airport in good time for our flight to Hangzhou.
We would like to thank you for all the smooth arrangements and will definitely be recommending your services to our friends.
Nov 08, 2015
The weather wasn't great, but the rest was fine.
We were offered a discounted upgrade to suite on arrival, which we accepted. The cruise and sights were interesting, the food and service were good. We enjoyed the private forward-facing balcony. All in all, very enjoyable.

Hi, Jack Li
We are on the way back. Everything went fine and we enjoyed it. Thank you for making the cruise trip and such a great experience.

Everything went great, we had no problems finding the boat, the room was perfect and the trip went smoothly. We joined all the shore excursions and had no problems.
Thanks for everything.
SpanishSep 24, 2015
Dear Jack Li,
We enjoyed the river cruise much. The staff on board was very engaged and the scenery was in spite of some rain and clouds impressive. The presentation of the Chinese medicine by the ship doctor has been of special interest for us. Everything went as it should!
SwissSep 23, 2015
Thank you for all your arrangement.
We have enjoyed our day tours in Xi'an and Wuhan very much. We are also very happy about the pick up arrangements and the cruise. All thanks to your efforts and very much appreciated.
Sep 09, 2015
We have finally reached our new home in Kazakhstan after a month of traveling by train all the way from Saigon, Vietnam.
Without a doubt our Yangtze River cruise was the highlight of the trip and highly recommended. Not only is the scenery breathtaking, but the staff on board the Victoria Selina went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Everything from food to daily excursions left nothing to want.
Thanks once again.
Aug 13, 2015
Despite the changes due to natural disasters, it was an excellent trip.
Thanks so much for your great service
Jul 04, 2015
We are enjoying the cruise very much. The room is spacious and nice the crew very friendly, the food exceptional, and we just came back from a magnificent dance performance of members of the crew. We had a super interesting excursion. Thank you thank you!
May 10, 2015
I just got back from China after almost three weeks there. After the Yangtze River cruise I joined a tour with my sister and went to Xi'an and Shanghai.
The cruise and the sleeper train that you arranged for us went very well. The cruise was beautiful and we had English speaking guides on the two excursions. We managed very well taking taxis to and from airports, cruise ports and train stations.
Thank you for making the arrangements! I would recommend you to friends going to China and if I go back I will contact you again.
Mar 22, 2015
I will be writing a trip advisor review shortly to recommend your services to any one that is wishing for a great tour of the Yangtze. I had a wonderful time and can not thank you enough for all your help. I was extremely excited to be able to pass through the ship locks and the scenery was amazing! Overall the trip, accommodations, and transfer service was exceptional.
Thank you again for everything and best regards,
USAMar 01, 2015
I want to give my compliments. The driver picked me up promptly at 5:00 am and not only did he help with my luggage and get my ticket, he waited with me since the train station was completely empty at that early hour. Extremely polite young man. I have arrived in Yichang and look forward to exploring the city before the cruise on Sunday. So far Yangtze River Cruises has provided exceptional service and made my travels very easy. I look forward to writing a positive review on trip advisor so that others who wish to travel to China will not fear and use your travel company.
Thank you for all the help.
USAFeb 20, 2015
We are back home savely. Thank you for all you did for us when we was visiting your country. We will never forget everything. We loved all our guides and drivers they were so sweet and helpfull.
