Excellent trip with very good itinerary and great tour guides. The cruise tour was amazing, more than our expectation. It was a nice cruise trip, beautiful scenery, amazing views, enjoyable cruise. The services were great and facilities kind of complete inside the cruise. Overall, we are satisfied from what we got. Took a lot of amazing pictures!

Kelly Lim -- 2018-05-17 14:15:37

I had to say Yangtze River cruise is really a terrific tool taking all the tourists to another marvelous world. Surrounded by charming sceneries and pearl waters, all the borings and troubles disappeared. It is really a spirit and vision enjoyment. The mountains show green colors, vigorous and lifelike.

Shennong Stream is very attractive with quiet environment, slowly and mild. Three Gorges are very attractive housing ancient atmosphere. Tour guide gave us much information about the Xiling Gorge, very interesting and memorable.

Service offered by the cruise is very considerate. We enjoyed the best treatment, cozy environment losing in the dreamy world, truly unforgettable!

Thomas Davis -- 2017-10-13 14:13:06

I love the whole tour itinerary anyway. It was the best tour in China that I ever had! An excursion along Yangtze River also includes a short visit to two famous cities (Beijing and Xian). I am really appreciated because all of the services were organized and same as our expectations before. We did enjoy the whole time we spent in China this time! Thanks so much!
