What Our Former Customers Say?
"The ship, Victoria Katarina was better in every way than we expected. The accommadation was clean and spacious, the resturant quality was excellent, and the crew was very polite and helpful. The river guide, Luther, was knowledgeable and very entertaining. The evening activities were good fun without being extravagant, in all a very good balance.
The side trips to the Dam, Ship Locks, Lesser Three Gorges, Fengdu Ghost City were well organised and not rushed, giving plenty of time to see everything we wanted. The scenery is spectacular."
