Hi Laura,

Thank you for your e-mail. We are now back home in England after a wonderful visit to China where we were treated very well indeed.

Your guidance and arrangements proved to be excellent. Everything went like clockwork from jiuzhaigou, Leshan & Mount Emei, Guilin Li River & Yangshuo, to the great Yangtze River Cruise from Chongqing to Shanghai.

The flight to Chongqing went fine and we were met by Diana who took us to the old town lunch and the Peoples square with impressive Great Hall of the people and 3 gorges Museum. This was a good visit we were well received by Diana at the airport and she impressively arranged 2 porters to carry our bags onto the President 8, a very much appreciated service given how heavy they were and how far we had to walk. Well done Diana, and she gave us our refund for the AC flight in a very timely way!

The cruise was wonderful with 2 outstanding people on board who looked after us very well indeed, gabby our River guide and Jack our personal waiter who was excellent at “sorting” things and the food was very much more to our taste which was appreciated by the dozen or so foreign tourists we met. The crew were very good and excursions just right. The Shibao Zhai Pagoda and the Min 3 gorges cruise we recommend for culture and fun.

You did us very well indeed and we would have no hesitation at all in recommending you to others particularly those who want to travel as we did. You did indeed offer a thoroughly bespoke service and we appreciated this very much indeed. It is hard to imagine anyone could have provided a better service. Just keep up the good work. Thank you!

Best wishes

Dear Olivia,

I did enjoy my 12 day holiday in Chongqing and Wuhan with the Yangtze River Cruise in between. What I like most about this trip is the Yangtze River Cruise with well-planned on board activities and the peaceful beautiful scenery along the Yangtze River.

I am satisfied with your service and prompt reply every time I requested some information from you. Thank you again for your assistance in making my trip a smooth one.

Thank you and good luck to you.

Hi Jack,

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.

Hi, Isabel

This Yangtze River Cruise Tour from Beijing was relaxing, breath taking and a luxurious delight. The guides in different cities of Beijing, Chongqing, are very knowledgeable. Before board on the cruise we visited the old village "wander" around information and history was provided on the area. By the time we got to the zoo (which was defiantly worth the trip!!) I would have appreciated more local information and history. We suggested to taking afternoon walk downtown for a while without a guide. What a big expensive city center- I thought it rivalled New Yorks Time Square. Our guide spoke excellent, met us again and was very helpful getting us boarded on the boat.

The crew support onboard was mind blowing from the first captain greeting us and helping us to get settled - the serving staff attentive and going out of their way to meet our needs. And the hanging coffins were truly a sight to see! Isabel made everything run smoothly to ensure we met our schedule.

We were sad to have the part of our tour you planed over. Isabel and her team provided us with luxurious and carefree experiences that would not have happened without such a caring, professional and expert planning.

When people ask how was your personal guide tour through China? We tell them it was a trip of a lifetime. Isabel was always very easy to contact and have complete trust in Isabel and her company.

Hello Jack,

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,

Hello Jack,

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.

Best Regards,

John Soares

Vegetarian Food
Hi, We are traveling in the cruise from 9 May. Is there any Indian vegetarian food. What are the other vegetarian options
2018-04-30 04:51
Hello Ravi,

Greetings from China! At present, there is no Indian vegetarian food served onboard Yangtze River cruise ships. However, the breakfast, lunch and dinner are almost arranged in buffet styles with about 3-5 vegetarian dishes, like cabbages, vegetables in season, vegetable and fruit salad, and so on, and some cruises prepare the dinner in Chinese sitting form with some specially cooked vegetarian dishes for guests. And if want, you could also pay extra to order some vegetarian food at the reception desk and tell the staff about your needs and eating habits, and the cruise chefs would prepare great food for your enjoyment. Besides, the Yangtze River ships serving foreign guests from the world have provided service to many vegetarian travellers and have gained rich experience and good reviews, so you can enjoy your dining time on the ship!

Wish you a wonderful Yangtze River sailing trip in May!

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!
