The objective of this trip (both cruise and land portion) was to experience the highlights of China. We organized this particular trip in conjunction with a trip to Hong Kong and Japan. The trip was excellent. The organization was phenominal. There were 4-5 flights within China, hotel accomodations, plus the river portion. Each portion of the trip went without a hitch, which in my opinion was amazing (if you have ever flown in China, you will understand). The days were action packed. Not a day went by without either one or two tours, and that included days we flew between cities. The highlights of the tour included all of the iconic China sites, plus a very interesting tour to a local school. We were very satisfied with this tour and especially satisfied with our tour guide Tom (sorry, I do not know his Chinese name). Without someone to organize all of the various tours, flights, hotels, etc. the trip would be almost impossible to do on your own. If you do take this tour, rest up ahead of time. By the end of the trip you will be very exhausted, but in a very good and satisfying way.

Cabin Review

Cabin 220
For a river boat with its required size restrictions, this cabin was spacious and well appointed.
