    Excellent 5 star service !
    A five star service 👍. Very responsive, attentive, and profressional. The ship and the crews are very profressional. Very clean and excellent facilities. The foods and drinks (including alcohols) are great. Thank you Mr. Wander Wong for all the assistance. Very recommended especially for overseas tourists like us.

    A great way to relax and slow down!
    This was one of the highlights of our trip to China - a perfect way to travel from Chongqing to Yichang! Ben was very helpful and efficient - he booked our trip and kept us up to date about our booking. The cruise was very relaxing and it was nice to have such a good choice of food at meal times. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were included. Our cabin was spacious, clean and comfortable - I loved just sitting on the balcony as the ship cruised along the banks of the Yangtze. The scenery was beautiful, especially once we had entered the Three Gorges. The organised excursions were interesting - my favourite was The Mini Three Gorges tour which we paid extra for - it was definitely worth it to explore the smaller gorges - the scenery was stunning. Overall, I would recommend the cruise for a relaxing few days travelling down the Yangtze - it is a great way to slow down and enjoy the scenery.

    A Terrific Trip
    We took the Yangtze 3 from Yichang to Chongqing. What a terrific 5 day trip - impressive dam, scenic river, mystical gorge, sparkling new ship, and fellow passengers who were truly kind. We two were the only English-speaking passengers on board but the crew made sure that we, and everyone else, had a wonderful trip. Unlike other boat trips, this cruise includes all excursions. One tip: for a more intimate dining experience and bar, book a suite.

    Definitely take this tour
    This was a wonderful tour. I live in Guangzhou and had been in many adventures but Ben took me to many I hadn’t been to and told me the history. He catered the tour to my interests — I wanted to go to a tea place too. It was Golden Week so we even went in to a lovely temple. I had a wonderful time and look forward to more future tours.

    The best
    Absolutely fantastic tour! Amazing service from Ben who sorted out all tickets and preparation with excellent communication care and guidance. The hotel was fab! The tours were breathtaking- the forbidden city , the square and the Great Wall are all so iconic and special. The guides Kevin and violet were first class. The best trip advisor tour I have ever booked- if I could give over 100% I would ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    So worth it!
    This was such an excellent trip! My friend and I booked this last minute, and the team was so great! Our guides, Kevin (for the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square) and Violet (for the Great Wall), were incredible. They shared so much knowledge and really listened to all of our needs. They are definitely people that I would talk to again if I want to go back to Beijing!

    Stunning night view in Pearl river through Cruise
    We were invited by one of our clients to have a special night in Pearl river and visit city from another angel. He reserved the VIP section for us which was in top floor of cruise. It passed through river and we could take many pictures with different backgrounds such as Canton Tower, Bridges and tall building. It has stunning view night

    An amazing experience....one for the bucket list...
    Yangtze Gold 8 River Cruise Yichang to Chongqing Johnson was our contact for booking the tour and he did an amazing job (Chengdu Bamboo International Tours). The cruuse was incredible! Amazing scenery and always something thing to do with the extra day tours that are part of the itinerary. I suggest doing the ship lift on the Three Gorges Tour, quite an experience and worth the money. I also strongly suggest you upgrade the meal package and dine in the upstairs dining rooms with small groups and a separate buffet. Much more relaxing. The boat was OK, it felt a little damp and it's time for an upgrade of facilties, but overall excellent value for the money.

    Five relaxing days on Victoria Sabrina
    We really enjoyed the Cruise on Victoria Sabrina. It’s a very new ship. The rooms were very comfortable, the food was excellent and the crew very friendly and helpful! We were the only west people on the ship and on the ship as well as on the excursions they translated everything in English - just for four persons!

    Delicious and delicate.
    Delicious and delicate. The food in Guangzhou is the best. The old town is worth visiting if you want to know history and cultures of Guangzhou. Travelling in Guangzhou is not so difficult except for some language problems until recently the GZ government has had an interpretation hotline(+8620960169), which can provide great service for public affairs and government services. I used several times taking taxi and asking for directions, the interpreters are quite professional.

We were very lucky and had Stony as our guide only for us (brother and sister). Stony was a pefect guide. He picked us up at the hotel on time, brought water for us and always took good care of us. We only can recommend this tour and would go any time on another trip in Guangzhou or China with Stony again.

Been to the most typical tourist spots is GZ... So when I saw a tour in the old xiguan area of GZ I gave it a try...

Our guide for the day was Ben... Who arrived 10 minutes before our start time, and who spoke perfect English...

We toured around the xiguan area, Liwan lake, canton opera museum, 永厦坊 area, and the ancestral home of the legend "Bruce Lee".

Learned a lot from Ben and enjoyed his company... 👍👍👍
