I used China Discovery Tour Company to book our 4 night Yangtze River Cruise on the Yangtze Gold 6. They also arranged transportation to the Chongqing airport after the cruise ended, our flights to Shanghai, transportation, guide and accommodations in Shanghai. The cruise itself was interesting, but due to rain each day, our experience was less than it could have been. Although the rain is out of everyone's control, I do think the cruise line could have made more efforts and been better prepared to offer options to those on board. Basically we were told to "rest in our cabins". Ok for a limited time, but we didn't want to spend the majority of our time on a river cruise in our cabin. A nice alternative would have been game or card tournaments, crafts or demonstrations (such as we had a housekeeper leave cute towel animals in our cabin each day - why not offer a workshop on how to make those? or maybe traditional Chinese crafts or talks relevant to the country) Also activities such as billiards were an additional cost, why not open these up for free when there is rain? Because of the weather, most passengers did not go on deck, therefore time to interact and meet new people was limited. The staff was very friendly, and took good care of us in that most passengers were Chinese speaking, they made sure to put us in tour groups where either the guide spoke both Chinese and English or gave the tour in English only. The scenery was breathtaking, food ok. Definitely go for the upgraded dinning. The cabins were surprising roomy and shower/bathroom good. Going through the locks was cool.

We booked our cruise with Johnson Wang, in the Chengdu office. He was very efficient in every detail of our trip and in answering all of our questions and handling our special requests regarding transfers promptly. Would definitely recommend using him as your agent. The trip itself was the three day trip from Chongqing to Yichang, on the Gold Cruise 6. Great staff. Very friendly and accommodating. The scenery is spectacular and the cruise is very smooth. We signed up for all of the day trips to the historic sites, and although that was quite tiring, we were happy that we did them all. There was an English speaking guide assigned to us for each stop and also for all of our services on the cruise (dining, housekeeping, cruise director etc). Even with the language barriers with most of the other guests, we were all good friends and had a warm send off from everyone at the end of the trip.

We contacted Lyn at Yangtze river cruises and she was very helpful! She answered all our questions and also arranged pick up and traintickets after ended cruise. Very good service! We went with the Yangtze gold 6 ship. It was a great ship, the only thing we wished we knew was that this cruise was mostly for Chinese tourists. So we were a little lost as the only western people there. But the cruise management on the boat took very good care of us so we had a great and fun tour. Would absolutely recommend Yangtze river cruises for planning a trip on Yangtze river.
