We spent one private day tour to the Three Gorges Dam with the tour guide Ginger Jiang. Her English is very good, and she explained everything on the project so well and we learned a lot about this area from her narration. She was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and had a very pleasant personality. I highly recommend her and would definitely contact you again when my friends visit Yichang in the future.

The Three Gorges Tribe is truly a beautiful place surrounded by breathtaking scenery. We took this private tour with Jennifer, a very experienced guide with fluent English. It took about 1 hour from our hotel to that area, and our driver drove smoothly so it is rather impressive throughout the tour. A wonderful experience!
Joshua Kellett

The 3-hour cruise through the Xiling Gorge is unforgettable with picturesque scenery. That was our first time going through a ship-lock on a boat, and it is an amazing experience. Our guide is Jennifer, a very lovely young lady who speaks good English. The Three Gorges Dam project is rather impressive, a wonder made by human.
