What Our Travelers Say

Still deciding if a China Discovery is for you? Many of our travellers have experienced a lifetime changing trip and now more than happy to share their stories with you. Check out their memorable travel trip reviews and experiences in China.

Hi Lyn,

Everything went well on the cruise. I am glad we took the time to do that trip between busy days in Shanghai, Xi'an and Beijing. The cruise was as expected and we had no problems. Food was good, ship was very clean, service was good, tours from ship were good, etc.

The taxi driver who took us from the airport to the dock in Chongqing did not know where he was going but stopped to get directions.  After the cruise we stayed at the Crown Plaza in Yichang and flew to Beijing the next day.  No problems.

You were most helpful and I would certainly recommend you to others.

Hi Lyn

Thank you for email. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip, and I will reply to your email properly and answer your questions when I am home  in NZ and have access to my computer at the weekend.

Kind regards

Hi Johnson,

We had a very nice trip and your planning was spot on. Thanks for making it all possible! I will look for an appropriate photo to forward for you.   Here are the survey responses.

1. Is your travel consultant of our company fast enough to answer your E-mail and patient enough to answer your questions?

- Our consultant, Johnson, was quick with responses and generous with his time. He provided lots of good insight as to what we might expect during a busy travel week in China, as well as how to mitigate the crowds.

2. How do you comment your tour arrangements?

- The tour was excellent all around and well-documented support made it easy to enjoy our trip.

3. Are you willing to recommend our service to your people who also have an interest to visit China?

- I would certainly recommend Yangtze River Cruises to anyone who would like to visit China and who would prefer the details be smoothed out ahead of their trip. The consultant (Johnson) was skillful at predicting areas of possible difficulty,  then offering a soup-to-nuts solution making our trip a breeze.   We had three generations on this trip and everyone had a terrific time.   Additionally, during the busy travel time of "Golden Week", the limited passenger count of a riverboat was a nice way to keep our kids and their grandmother from being overrun by crowds.

4. Your general opinion on us?

- Yangtze River Cruises seems to have this trip style down pat.   Not only is the information on the website thorough, the consultant also knew what additional questions to ask and was ready with solutions when we needed anything out of the ordinary.

5. Can we use your comments of our service, the photos or other images that you took on the tour for our websites, brochures, marketing and publicity? If yes, could you please send us some of your photos by E-mail?

-Yes, but please don't post my family name. Just use "Joseph F." I will look for an appropriate photo or two to share. Thanks again for a terrific trip!

Best Regards,

Joe F

Hi Stephanie,

Sorry for the late response. I only just returned from my trip.

1.    Is your travel consultant of our company fast enough to answer your E-mail and patient enough to answer your questions?

Travel consultant was very helpful, informative and answered my inquiries quickly.

2.    How’s the service of the tour guides during your whole tour?

 Tour guides were very organized. All parts of the trip and excursions were explained fully. They both spoke very good English and helped us with transportation to our next                  venue once we left the boat.

3.    Would you like to recommend our company?

 Yes would recommend tour and company to other travelers.

Hi Jack

Just a brief note to thank you for your assistance in organising our trip. We had a wonderful time and have great memories of all the sites we visited. The itinerary gave us an excellent taste of your great country and all the guides were both informative and attentive to our needs.

I have provided an update on Trip Advisor (under my account name CCM4), to help future travelers.

Best wishes,

Hi Wonder,

We enjoyed the cruise and the food was good. All the tours were interesting; it was a nice rest from our hectic travel. We did not experience crowds on the tours.

Thanks for arranging the transport to and from the ship all went well.

Dear Wonder,

It is been 2 weeks since my friends and I return from our holiday in China. We all enjoyed ourselves very much and we thank you for the good arrangement except for a few hick-ups in misunderstanding and email communication. All went well for our tour except for the incident in X'ian where one of our group members was lost for 2 hours. And the other problem was the knives and scissors that we could not carry on board the High Speed Train.

Please let me know whether you are able to arrange for someone to bring the knives and scissors back to Kuala Lumpur.

I would like to let you know that we were really pleased with the tour guides and drivers, especially the driver in Turpan/Urumqi. One of our group members sprained her ankle in Urumqi and he took his own initiative to buy a pack of ice for her to put on her ankle. We were also impressed with Lu Ming for his good command of English and details stories of the places we visited although it was only for half a day.

We are actually thinking of visiting the Yangtze three gorges and include Lanzhou and Xi'an in the itinerary as well. Would you be able to recommend an itinerary and cost for 12 days?

Best regards,
