Best regards,
Dear Sirs,

Yes, thank you for your e-mail, I was about to write the feedback myself.

We are generally satisfied with the cruise. The cabins were very good, the trips interesting, the crew helpful and nice.

All in all it was a nice adventure. Thank you once again.

Michal Maciejewski

The cruise was absolutely fantastic, we have been telling all our friends about it and will continue to recommend your company to everyone we see and talk to who would like to do your cruise and tell them to use your company.
Thanks for all the arrangements,everything went so smoothly.

The boat was outstanding and the crew were all very helpful all of the time.

We had the most wonderful time.

Thank you once again and hope to deal with you again in the future.

Kind regards
Diana and the rest of our party.

We had a very nice cruise. The rooms were fine, and the food we liked very much. Also the staff was very friendly and the excusions were very interesting. Personally I was quite impressed by the dam, even though it had some big effects on very many people. 
We liked to meet many chinese people (other people on holiday) at the cruise, whom we spoke to and got to know.
We were in general fascinated by China, and were impressed many times during our 3 week stay in the country. 
 So yes we were satisfied. Thank you for your help.
  Best regards

the trip on the Yangtze was very professional organized. Everything was in time, everybody (incl. the transfers from and to the airports) was extreme friendly and cooperative. Our cabin on the Yangtze Explore was very big and always well cleaned by the housekeeping.
I can add many highlights ….
We had 4 excellent days on the Yangtze and we loved to book Discover Yangtze Tours.
Petra & Wolfgang Hass

Thankyou for your follow up email.
We enjoyed our cruise july 14 to 17.
The food was excellent, the included excursions were fantastic, the various extra activities on board were also very good. The wifi coverage was excellent on board.
Overall it was a terrific cruise and excellent value for money, the entertainment at night was great and the staff were friendly and helpful.
Thankyou once again for your assistance, we would recommend to other Australians to go on the same cruise and to use your agency to book the trip.
Everything was perfect on the cruise we were highly satisfied.
I would like to thank you for organising it and answering all my questions prior to departure.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this cruise, and your company, to anyone in England.
Once again many thanks.
Best regards

Yesterday we finished our trip on the Yangtze. Your organization was excellent. The transfers were well organized and we had a lot of fun.
We will recommend you wherever we can!
This. For all.
Petra and Wolfgang Hass

Good to hear from you. I like to express my appreciation for your arrangement for our Three Gorges cruise. It was indeed very good and memorable. I would highly recommend it to our friends here.
Hello, We were delighted. It was a great experience all around. The boat was very comfortable, the food delicious (although I did get sick -- and I had been eating street food everywhere else :) ), the medical attention terrific, the river guide (Cathy) excellent, the tours fascinating, the nighttime shows very professional and interesting ... I should have pre-arranged a driver to take us to the airport when we left the cruise, but the people at the front desk kindly did that for me on the last day. Thank you again for you help.

Thank you very much for making it so easy to book the cruise.
We had a fabulous time and enjoyed every moment. The staff were lovely and the food was fantastic. We enjoyed our stay on the boat as well as our time in China.
Thank you very much.
Kind regards

We really enjoyed the cruise.
The cabin was fine and the service on board the ship was excellent.
We thought the food was also very good.
Luckily after the first day of rain, it brightened up and we enjoyed fantastic scenery and sunshine.
Thank you for your assistance.

Hello! Now, I've just arrive in Spain from China. My husband and I are very happy with the cruise, we enjoyed and we met very interesting people. And the scenic spot is really beatiful. Thank you for everything. I'll recommend you to my friends!!
Kind regards!!

Dear Manager
Just wanted to say thank you very much for organising everything for my parents trip. And in particular making sure they could get on the boat when their flight was late. You were really fantastic! And they enjoyed themselves so much on the trip.

Hi Peter,
The cruise and your arrangement were good. Happy with everything. Thanks for the good job done. In the future, I will recommend my friends to u if they are interested in the cruise.

Yes we were very satisfied with all the arrangement you made
especially the train tickets to Xian. I will tell all my friends of
yours services if they ever plan a trip to China. Thank you very much.
Daniel Honzik


Yes we were very happy with the cruise and really enjoyed it.
The service from your company was excellent and I will recommend you to friends and colleagues taking the cruise. All your staff were very helpful.

Thanks very much. We have enjoyed our trip indeed and are very positive about the trip and your service. We will certainly recommend the cruise and organization. This a very nice way to travel in the yangtze area.
Kind regards
Jos Pieterse

We are satisfied with the services provided by the company.  Thank you for everything.

We were very happy with your service - you went out of your way to help us to get the trip organised.
The boat was very good - comfortable, good food - we enjoyed the shows on board and the side tours as well.
We would be happy to act as a reference for this trip - contact us at any time.
Ron Sharp

We had a fantastic trip. The boat was great and we also had some good weather with great views of the gorges. We were impressed with the service, food and excursions.
Thanks for organising it for us.

We are satisfied. It was perfect indeed. We will say that to our friends.
Sincerely yours. 
Alain Prouté 

Dear Mr. and Mrs.
Everything worked wonderful, many thanks! We were really surprised (in a positive matter) about the cruise. The rooms, the food and the trips were wonderful and everything was really well organized. Everybody was nice and really helpful and we had wonderful days on board, my whole family enjoyed the trip.
I really can really recommend everything,
many thanks again and best regards

Hi sorry it took so long but I thought I'd drop you a note to thank you for a great trip on the Yangtze Explorer. Our guide (Alan?) provided excellent service in meeting us at Chongqing railway station at a v. late hour due to our flight delay. We also had a very enjoyable city tour around Chongqing, which has turned out to be the nicest city in China that I've visited! And thank you for the hotpot restaurant recommendation- it was fantastic!!
One thing though- for some reason the Yangtze Explorer cruise company didn't notify Alan re. the embarkation point until very late in the day, and we ended up circling around the docks looking for the boat, then trekking all over these other fishing boats and cargo barges to reach the Yangtze Explorer, which was kind of weird but pretty funny, hee hee.
Thank you again- I've recommended the trip to all my family and friends... it was really great!

We are back home in Australia now. We had a lovely time on the Yangtze cruise and enjoyed the visit to Chengdu & Leshan.
Thank you very much for your help in organising the trip. Everything worked out perfectly.
Kaye & Alan Chalk

Thanks to your experience and professionalism, the booking of the cruise was very efficient and my special requirements could be met without any problems.
I had a wonderful time on the cruise, it was perfect. The staff were very friendly, competent and attentitive. The programme with various activities and attractions was well organised and executed. The facilities on the cruise ship fully met my expectations. The mix of Chinese and western tourists was ideal to bring both cultures closer together (I explicitly avoided another ship because I expected it to be full of Americans. I like Americans, but if I want to see them I go to the U.S.A. - not China). Overall, it's a cruise I can fully recommend to anybody visiting China (and I wouldn't be surprised if I did it again in a few years).
Again, xie xie for your kind help. It was much appreciated.
Warm regards

We are very satisfied with the cruise and all your arrangements.
We have highly recommended you to our friends in Beijing.
Ererything worked out so well.
The ship and the service there was very goddd och your service as well.
Best regards
Benedikte Akker.

I just wanted to write and tell you what a fantastic service you gave us arranging our Yangtze River trip on the Victoria Anna. I can honestly say that the family thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience - it was absolutely faultless! Your recommendations were perfect.
The transportation to and from the ship and accommodation was excellent, the service on-board was commendable and the tours to Ghost City, The Lesser Gorges and the Three Gorges Dam were professionally run with every attention to detail catered for. The food on board, entertainment and service received was of a very high consistent standard.
In closing, I would certainly use again and recommend 'Discover Yangtze Tours' to anyone who is considering a trip of this kind.
Many thanks once again and best regards,
The Drummond family.

Just writing to let you know everything worked out well with this cruise.
The hostel looked after us and got us to the boat in plenty of time. The
cabin was very good and comfortable and there was only 32 people on the
ship and as a result we had very personal attention. The included land
tours were all very interesting also.
We had quite some trepidation booking this online from so far away but
this was without basis and we had a very enjoyable week on the Victoria
Prince, and felt it was extremely good value for money.
Our thanks go out to Discover Yangtze Tours.
Tony Lippey

We had a wonderful trip and both my parents and us have really enjoyed it. The hotels were great and all the guides were available to greet us at each city. In particular, our local guide in Xi-An was very good and very knowledgeable… definitely the best we had during our trip. The cruise was also very nice, very well organized along with very nice people. Overall a success and I will make sure to recommend your services to friends.
Best regards,

My friend and myself were most impressed with the Yangzte River Cruise, the standard of accommodation and entertainment and most of all with the arrangements that you made for us. We thank you very much for organising this. China certainly is a very beautiful Country. The people are most friendly and helpful. As some stage I would really like to do further travel in China and maybe even do the cruise along the Yangtze to Shanghai. If so I shall be booking through yourself because of you efficient and helpful service.
Thanking you

It was my Father and I!
Yes, we were very happy with the cruise and the arrangement! Thanks for organising it

We had a wonderful time on the cruise. I would definately recommend it to others.
 Thank you for all of your assistance.

Taree Dayman We have just returned to China. The Yangtze River cruise was a highlight for us.
We were more than satisfied with the cruise and with your company and I would recommend my friends to book through you.
You offered a very good deal and price on the cruise (the best of several companies we got quotes from) and we thought it was good value for money. You also gave us very good customer service and speedy replies to emails.
As it turned out we had a few hours spare between arriving in Chongqing and joining the ship, so we went to Chongqing Zoo. We are so glad we did as seeing the pandas was also a highlight for us. It's a great zoo.
Thank you again for your assistance.

Yes, we were satisfied. Both guides were waiting for us and very efficient. The cruise was nice. Everyone had a good time even though the weather was not great.
Lauren Lindheimer

We were very satisfied with the cruise and your arrangements.

Dear Bobby
We enjoyed our trip very much and were very happy with the service you provided. Thank you for your help. We are now at Hong Kong airport and leaving China after a very happy holiday.

We completed the cruise on the Yangtze and are back in Shanghai. We will return to Panama on Saturday February 21, 2009. The guide who picked us up today, Frank Chang was the best we have had on all our trips. His English was excellent but he also gave us an insight in to Chingqing and China atlarge and was aware of what is going on in the rest of the World. It was a great trip up the Yangtze and thank you for arranging it so well. If you need references for Discover Yangtze encourge people to contact us. Regards
E. Howard Wenzel

It was wonderfull Be sure that I will recomend you people to my travel agent and friends.Regards Ernesto Strauss

Yes, we enjoyed the cruise very much.
It was relaxing and admired beautiful sceneries.
Crossing the Three Gorges Dam ... the Lock was extremely interesting.
I recommend this cruise to everybody.
Thank you very much.
Kind Regards,
Jocelyne Besgrove

I just wanted to tell you we had a great time on the cruise!! It was awesome and we will definately recommend it. The guides and transfers were very nice and helpful. Thank you for all your help in booking this trip!

Hello Bobby Bao:
Thanks for your e-mail.
Yes, we had a very nice cruise. We were the only 2 people from Switzerland. We met 2 people from England, but I would say about 170 of the 180 passengers were Americans/Canadians. And apart from the English couple and ourselves, everybody was travelling in organized groups. Well, I like travelling independently, then you are free and can do whatever you like and you don't have to follow a tour guide all the time. The cruise had a very interesting programme with excursions and various on-board activities, so we were always busy. The food was good and the staff and other passengers were friendly, so we had a good time. And I must say, the staff is very talented, because besides their normal work, in the evening they were singing, dancing and playing music to entertain the guests. Just the weather could have been a bit better - I would have prefered to have more sunshine and blue sky, it was often a bit grey and cloudy.
Luckily, there were no damages in Chongqing from the earthquake and the dams didn't break... We were always joking that in case of a dam breaking while we were on the cruise we would arrive in Shanghai very quickly...

In general, we had a very interesting stay in China (Beijing, Lijiang, Dali, Kunming, etc.) so, who knows, we might travel to China again in the future. I just hope that the visa procedure will be easier again in the future, because now (due to the Olympic Games) much more papers, etc. are needed to get a visa. In any case I will watch the Olympic Games on TV with interest. I'm sure it will be a succesful event.
With best regards,
Claudia Kessler
PS: The Panda's we visit in Beijing zoo. They are extremely cute animals...

Yes, we thought the cruise was very nice and we had a great time.  The staff members were excellent and were very kind to all of the passengers.  Thank you for your interest!


The tour was excellent. It was probably the highlight of our trip so far. We met a lot of great people along the way. The staff was very helpful and the day trips and activities were all very fun. We even upgraded our room because we felt the ship was that nice. Thank you and next time I visit China I will go on the Yangtze River Cruise and recommend your services to others I meet wanting to do the same. Thanks,
Billy Gray

The cruise was great ,staff was so kinde and helpfule,i will reccomend for all my friends ,

We are happy to have made a detour to visit Yangtze River on board Victoria Katarina.   All the programme, payment arrangement, food, lodging, entertainment and staff are helpful and professional.  We would definitely recommend others to join your ship.

Dear Bobby
Thankyou - we had a great time on the cruise. Thanks again for organising it for us.
Kind regards,

I have returned to Singapore already.
Yangtze has been a very good trip for me. The schedule was what i expected and it was very good. My friend and I are very satisifed with your service and the arrangement. We would surely recommend your service to friends.

Lin Weikang

We had an interpreter that was just wonderful. We will recommend you specifically to our friends who will be planning a China trip. As I said, I will have my web site administrator put a link to your web site. Who knows, maybe one of our good customers may decide to take this wonderful cruise down the Yangtze.
Your service that YOU provided was wonderful. Had it not been for you and your wonderful service and quick responses to our e-mails we probably would not have taken the cruise. So, again I thank you.
Dick and Melba Dial
We both really enjoyed our cruise, and have recommended it to our friends and family. It was one of the highlights of our holiday.
Thank you
Thank You for your asking. Your arrangements were perfect. We had a great trip. I would do this again. We had a great cabin on the cruise ship and everyone was great. Most others on the cruise were with big cruise companies and we did feel that we weren't involved with the groups. But, it was fine with us.
Thomas Mausbach
Dear Mr. and Mrs:
This is to thank you for an extreme well planned tour for us in China!
Everything was as planned and the guides were there on time and very helpful. The hotels were excellent and surely not to forget The Sheraton Daning!
The cruise on Yangtze River were wonderful with good service and tours. The food was splendid and the crew were friendly.
We were very happy you recommended the first class onboard the planes. The extra cost was full value for money.

Thank you very much for writing me. We had a nice and good trip. We are satisfied with the service and the people there. I will recommend to other friends. Thanks a lot.
Eduardo Escapez
Yes, my friends and I were very pleased with the cruise and the Tibet tour.
We thought the ship was a little old and run down but the service was very good and we enjoyed the cruise and the shore excursions. Our river guide, Leo, was excellent.
I emailed Homer, the gentleman you recommended for our Tibet tour, to let him know that we were pleased with the tour, our guide and our driver.
We will definitely recommend your services to friends who wish to travel to China and Tibet.
Thank you again for all your advice and assistance.
Warm regards,
Linda Mantel
