Victoria Cruises has teamed up with tour company Asian Vistas to create a 12-day land/sea package that includes four days cruising the mighty Yangtze from Chongqing to Yichang and tours by private car with English-speaking guides to Beijing, China’s capital; the ancient walled city of Xi’an; and Shanghai, China’s international hub of commerce and culture. 

Highlights of the Victoria Cruises itinerary on the Yangtze River include the famous hillside fortress at Shibaozhai, the Three Gorges Dam, and a side trip on a traditional sampan. The Asian Vistas land portion features tours of the Great Wall, Xi’an famous terra cotta warriors, and the Jade Buddha Temple in Shanghai. The land tour can also be extended to include tours of bustling Hong Kong and the city of Guilan with its dramatic scenery and unique local cuisine.

We think this package is a great introduction for new travelers to China: clients will see a lot but still be able to relax on the cruise portion of the itinerary, in particular. Rates start at $2,295 per person, double occupancy, and include accommodations, meals, car tours and guides, shore excursions, and arrival and departure transfers. Not included are internal airfares (flights start at $645) and China visa fees.

Five-star Victoria Cruises has been sailing the Yangtze since 1994 and offers itineraries ranging from four to nine days, while Asian Vistas has 35 years of experience running tours in China, Japan and more than 20 other Asian countries.
