Recently stayed on the Yangtze Gold 7 for 4 nights as part of a Wendy Wu Tour. Although the ship is only some 18 months old the carpets in many places look like 18 years old. Perhaps the concept of spot cleaning or even general carpet cleaning has not reached the Yangtze yet. That is a shame as the rest... More

Whilst we have nothing but praise for SNA tours and our itinerary for the first 10 days of our amazing China trip the same cannot be said of Yangtze Gold 7, the river boat to which we transferred for the last 4 days and a cruise along the Three Gorges Project. The gorges are spectacular and the optional excursions offer... More

The 3 main gorges are fantastic and worth seeing. the 3 day journey down the Yangtze River is relaxing. The crusie shiop, Gold 6 is big and luxurious. But the food is not up to the mark. This is probably my only complaint. As the water level in the dam was high, we need not expereince the journey through the... More

We went on the Yangtze Gold Seven as part of our 11 day tour with China Odyssey. The transfer from Chonquing was a bit awkward as we were only told after we arrived after a long day of travel that we could not board the cruise ship and we had to take a further two hour bus ride to Fengdu.... More

Yangtze gold 6 Our travel agent booked the Gold 6. We were told this is the newest and most luxurious of the river boats. The G 6 caters mainly to Chinese tourist. As a result virtually all information is in Chinese. While 1 or 2 crew speak English none are proficient. Communication is extremely difficult even for the simplest of... More

Visited Last May. Perfect weather - 7 day cruise. The three gorges were spectacular! Absolutely spellbindingly beautiful. We had gone through smog choked Chongquing and spent an awful day there. We moved onto the gorges and they made the trip. Breathtaking mountains rising from the shore of the river - some were forested - others were sharp peaks - there... More

We went on a President and cruise have to say while the cruise was pleasant and relaxing the excessive high pressure sales pitches to upgrade to better cabins, better dining rooms etc was annoying and such a rip off. The more interesting trips were add ons so everything was about getting more money out of you. If you did not... More

We boarded a sightseeing vessel for this cruise on the Daning River. With an English speaking local guide explaining what we were seeing and what was coming up, it was a very enjoyable tour. The views of the cliffs and ridges were just spectacular.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this site and it is worth doing. However the expensive DVD's they were selling are a complete rip off. The English commentary is played over loud music or sometimes over the Chinese commentary and loud music! Either way you cannot hear it. The pictures are repetitive. All in all a complete waste of money... More

It takes a bit of research and you'll want to build in some flexibility in your timing but the rewards are significant. We did it and only speak very limited Chinese so you can too. Just takes a sense of adventure. Forget the traditional cruises that usually start in Chongqing or Yichang take 3-5 days become boring, are expensive, limit... More
