China Cruise

Yangtze River Cruises

A holiday to China is not complete without a 5* cruise along the Yangtze River, the longest river in Asia, flowing through the country’s spectacular and varied landscapes. The cruises mainly operate between Chongqing and Yichang, in either direction taking three nights downstream, and four nights up. One of the many highlights of a Yangtze cruise is a visit to the Three Gorges Hydroelectric River Dam, the largest and most dramatic dam in the world. Other excursions can include the remarkable Daning River Small Gorges, the mesmerising Shennong Stream, the atmospheric Ghost City of Fengdu and stunning Tribe of Three Gorges. Excursions vary according to your ship’s itinerary, so please call for further details. The staff on all our preferred ships deliver an attentive and professional service.
