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

Hi Wonder,

We have been back in Australia for about 3 weeks now.

We had a wonderful tour through China and want to thank you very much for your very efficient organization and coordination of all the different activities in the cities we visited.

We wanted it to be very special for my mother who is 84 years old and it exceeded all our expectations.

We were met at every city by very friendly tour guides, who were all prompt, and had good knowledge of their cities and made sure our stay was very pleasant.

The cruise on the Yangtze River was fantastic. We would have no hesitation in recommending your tour company to our friends in Australia and South Africa.

Thank you again for a wonderful tour through the highlights you showed is in China. It was very informative and all the tour guides were very friendly, nobody was ever late and the drivers and vehicles were generally very good.

We look forward to hearing from you again.

Kind regards,

Chris, Cheryl and Jean Rex

Hi Laura,

Thanks once more for all your help to make this trip of this 5 night Cruise from Yichang to Chongqing on Victoria Sophia

The ship itself was great. Good, comfortable accommodation, lovely views (each room has a balcony) and interesting trips to the shore (I only did one though as I was looking to relax). The meals were absolutely delicious and with a lot of variety. As a backpacker, I'm definitely not used to the type of little luxuries offered by a cruise such as this and I can definitely say that this trip was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. The gorges look absolutely stunning, especially when you're just relaxing in your balcony seeing them pass by.

Really appreciated you and all staff to make this Yangtze Cruise trip as special and great as it was. Thanks again.

See you

Hallo Tiger Wei,

Just for your info. I wrote to Trips Advisor just now:

We, a couple above 70 of age, went on the Yangtze River cruise in week 44/45 2014 from Chongqing to Yichang with the "Victoria 5". We booked this cruise directly via the internet with China Discovery in Chengdu. Even the ship was not really recommended for foreigners as she is not as young, big and luxury as others we decided to sail with her as we prefer to less passengers on board and a nice but simpler style. Mr. Tiger Wei did his utmost to satisfy our wishes. The same did the Tour Manager on the Victoria 5, Mr. Leo, during the cruise. The cabin was well arranged, the same was the sitting in the restaurant as well as the tours. The food was good, tasty with a lot of variety and plenty. About 20% of the passengers have been from abroad. All the staff was very polite and helpful. We enjoyed the fantastic landscape with the famous Three Gorges. We can say: a cruise we like to remember!

Clothing for Yangtze River Cruise
We are travelling on the Yangtze River cruise in early May 2019. Is it normally cold or can we wear shorts during the day
2019-04-18 17:08
Hello Robert,

Thanks for your question. Early May is during the spring along the Yangtze River. The weather changes warmer and warmer, and usually sunny in the day time, but there would be some cold wind at early morning and during night. It's ok to wear shorts on balmy sunny days. However, you are also recommended to prepare pants with you, because there may be some light raining days during the spring.

Wish you a memorable ship experience in China!
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!
