    We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and would recommend it to our friends. The group size was no more than 7 once we left Beijing and this made for a fun and friendly tour. This allowed the guides to shine and added greatly to our visits to Xi'an, Chengdu,... Show more

    Excellent tour, a lot packed into the first week, second week at an easier pace but tour guides nowhere near as good, and despite our expectations, the cruise was not the best part, as it came with a barrage of hard selling - from the moment we arrived... Show more

    Dear Colin Gow, The cruises on the Yangtze River Cruise did sell optional tours to their guests, or may provide options for upgrading the cabins when available. However, they should not give clients pressure on selling these services. We have forwarded... Show more

Frequently Asked Questions

    • The tour ends in Shanghai but I need to return to Beijing how do I get there?

      The tour ends in Shanghai, so you will need to make your own way to Beijing by either purchasing a flight from Shanghai to Beijing or catching one of the high-speed trains back to Beijing.

    • There is no dinner included on the day when we board the ship. Where should we have it?

      Before boarding the ship, we suggest you have dinner at a local restaurant in the city area and your guide will be more than happy to help you with recommendations. There is also an option of having dinner at the restaurant on board after check-in, however, it can be expensive.

    • What time does your group start and end every day?

      The day sightseeing visits usually start at around 8.30am and end at approximately 6.00pm, timing may change slightly according to the season. For days that have evening shows included, you may finish the day at around 9.00pm once the show finishes.
