We found this trip very good. The staterooms were very spacious and comfortable and the staff very helpful. The commentary as we sailed along the river was very good and we enjoyed the tours.

We had a great Yangtze river cruise onboard the Victoria Liana. Cabins are very comfortable and the cruise crew were inviting and pleasant.
Great cruise up-stream for 4 Days. Good value with complimentary tours and a choice of other tours at a reasonable cost. Food was fantastic with great choice.
