Hi Lucas,

Thanks for your question! I am sorry that we have no cruise available over the Yellow River. Yellow River is the largest sandy river in the world. For most part of the river doesn't have the Yangtze's size or depth for cruising. Besides, compared with the river scenery, this“mother river” in China is more famous for the historic and ancient attractions along it. If you are interested in the charming history of the Yellow River, you can pay a visit to the riverside cities like Lanzhou, Luoyang, Kaifeng, Zhengzhou, Yan'an, etc. or tell us directly about your interests. Our professional travel expert will help you sincerely customize a great tour for you!

Wish you a memorable trip in China!
