Yangtze River Cruises


The ultimate way to explore the Yangtze River

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