There are a few different companies that offer similar cruises up the Mekong, but we had sailed with Viking River Cruises in the past and were happy with them. I booked the April sailing, the last of the season because we could not sail ... Read more

I have been on three previous Viking river cruises and just love them. Am no longer interested in ocean cruises now that I have done the river ones. Our program director was the best, Mu Mu. She engaged all of his daily and the crew ... Read more

We chose this cruise and land excursion to get a good understanding of the culture of SE Asia. Unlike others I found the ship quaint and it fit the area we were traveling in. While the stairs were steep and there were some tall banks ... Read more

This cruise was part of a 17 day tour, called Cultural Delights of China. We travelled up the Yangze River, stopping at cities and towns along the way. At each stop we had a tour. I have been on a Viking cruise in Europe, and this ... Read more

I've always wanted to travel to China, was on my short bucket list, and I was not disappointed. I had been on ocean cruises before but the river cruise was the perfect way to see China. The cities of Shanghai, Xi'an and Beijing were ... Read more

My intent is to write a review that will give you insight and tips to help in planning your trip. I read reviews on Cruise Critic about the Imperial Jewels of China trip before I left home, but I learned many things on my trip that were ... Read more

We were unsure what to expect from China, but we found the people to be so welcoming and friendly! Our hotels were all 5 star! Every hotel was more lovely than the one before! Very impressive. And the hotel staff were all very ... Read more

I thought this tour was exceptional. The organization of everything by Viking was wonderful; everything went very smoothly. The hotels were 5-star; the food was wonderful - on land and on the ship. Roy was a great escort. The sights ... Read more

From the first day to the last day, this trip was outstanding! Our guide, Bob, was most congenial, shared his background (most interesting), shared his in depth knowledge of his country and cared for us as a Mother Hen cares for her ... Read more

Before embarking, our tour guide, Johanna gave us a preview of what to expect and to make reservations for the optional tours. Johanna made sure that we had no issues in our flight from Shanghai. Our cabin was 451, and Harry our cabin ... Read more

As usual, Viking arranged five star hotels and an excellent guide! Our hotel in Shanghai, The Fairmount Peace Hotel was beautiful and right across the street form the Bund, or River Walk. The ship was not as nice as the longship we cruised ... Read more

This was our maiden voyage with Viking River Cruises and our experience was far above as we expected. We took the one of the only two Explorer Suites of Viking Emerald Ship and were treated royally. Our son had his own stateroom which ... Read more

Don’t think of this three-week odyssey as a vacation, but as a journey. It’s not an easy trip for several reasons, but the payoff comes in surprising ways along with a few pretty significant downers. The 21-day Roof of the ... Read more

Although this is presented as a cruise the time on the water is only half of the trip. Nor did we embark at Shanghai but the option to choose Chonqing is not in the menu. This was our first experience of cruising since both my husband ... Read more

The trip was great. The hotels were all very nice. It was nice to be in the same small group with the same tour guide the entire trip. I enjoyed all the shore excursions. The food and wine on the ship was outstanding. Since we had 7 ... Read more

Overall, I would give our trip a 98%. It was full of wonderful sites and great guides (Special thanks to our guide, Jamie. She was excellent in every way and we felt lucky to have her for the whole trip). We sampled a lot of China in ... Read more

A great bucket list trip. From start to finish it was well organized and the tour guides were knowledgeable, friendly and fluent in English. All the transfers from airports to the tour sites to the ship, etc, were well organized and ... Read more

We started on the pre-trip extension in Bangkok at the Shangri-La Hotel (a fantastic hotel). It was a lovely beginning (and end) to a great trip. I loved Bangkok. The shopping was wonderful and cheap! It was our introduction to pagodas ... Read more

We picked this trip, since Myanmar was an entirely new and exotic destination. The Shangri La hotel in Bangkok was beautiful. We flew to Mandalay for a short tour and where we boarded the boat. The accommodations are very simple, but ... Read more

One could classify this trip as an adventure. Not recommended for beginners. I enjoyed it, my husband did not like it. It began in Bangkok. The guides there spoke poor English. I would recommend doing tours on your own thru the hotel. ... Read more

This was our first venture into China, so we booked all air and transfers through Viking. They flew us to Beijing a day early which was appreciated. We flew Air China which offered nothing out of the ordinary regarding space or food. It ... Read more

The ship name is Viking Orient and leased from Pandaw, but not on the list so I've put the name of the ship as the closest to "Orient". The cruise started in Mandalay, and not Yangon, but there is no such option for the port of embarkation ... Read more

This was our first experience with Viking and although the cruise part of the tour and pre cruise trip was only 5 days, the entire trip was 15 days for us. There were lots of logistics for them to handle and we felt they did an excellent ... Read more
