“Splendid cruise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Ride the boat with mommy and the rest of the entourage. 1 hour trip was not so long when you have a few things to discuss on boat. the interior was not so great but the view along the river was amazing. the landmark and architecture was installed with LED. the cruise take us to pearl bridge, the stadium, the canton tower and orchestra hall. we pass by some financial office/building along the way. fascinated view at night. the trip cost about 78Yuan. and there are several cruise provider along the trip and ours are less occupied one. plus our boat does not look as fancy as others.but still we enjoyed the trip.

“Boring”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

First 30 minute is exiting, but after 30minute is so boring..... Not much to see.... i suggest meanwhile we cruising, we can listen a tour guide give an information in English about what we saw a long the cruise, about the building , the history, about the pearl river , so we can get a new knowledge after we ended the cruise.

“Therapy of Lights”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

When we came to Guangzhou last year, we were treated to myriad coloured lights from as far and varied at Canton Tower, a tall building shaped liked an vivacious lady!

So this time, we were hoping to see the lights all over again. But we were disappointed. The guide took us to Zhongzhan for a Qijiang cruise along Qijiang River. This was different, a relaxing, slow, perhaps half-an-hour cruise along the River, savouring the multi-coloured lights of the bridges and buildings. There was no Canton Tower to fascinate us, no wow-factor, but a smooth and breezy ride in a ferry of 30 persons. Yes, there was a commentary by a guide and he sang praises on Dr Sun Yat Sun who was born in this county and has buildings commemorating him.

“Best way to see the city's skyline.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Our concierge at the hotel recommended we do just the one hour cruise with dinner not included. He was right. The cruise is enough to catch a close up view of the buidlings that dot the skyline including the Canton tower which is breathtaking when lit. In fact the entire skyline looks amazing in the night with stunning displays of lights. We recommend this cruise as a must do in Guangzhou.

“Well worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Spectacular lighting effects throughout the cruise. Well worth doing! Although we didn't realise that you needed to pay for VIP tickets to get up front and drinks/nibbles.
