This tour was an excellent introduction to contemporary China.  The river cruise part was a very relaxing aspect, with great food, good company, fine accommodations, interesting stops and dedicated staff and guides.  China is fairly overwhelming and we do not think we could have attempted this kind of a trip on our own, which is the usual way we travel.

Ship Tip

Be prepared for rainy and foggy weather -- in addition to China's pollution. We lucked out and Beijing had absolutely beautiful, albeit cold weather while we were there.
