Reserve a Yangtze River Cruise Tour and Money Matters

Chinatour360.com advises you to book a Yangtze River cruise tour as early as possible. Usually you can get a favorable price and a better cabin if you reserve the tour 4 to 6 months in advance. Booking through a travel agency will save you much trouble of getting to the ferry terminal by yourself, finding the right ship and cabin, and checking in. A good travel agency will provide you the best service at a reasonable price, but the unqualified travel agencies may quote a high price or arrange the worst cabin for you. Chinatour360.com kindly remind: please confirm the telephone number of your guide, the name of ship and the departure time and ferry terminal when booking a tour, and embark the right ship on time. 

Chinatour360.com offers other city tours besides the series of Yangtze Cruise itineraries and tour packages including Beijing, Shanghai, Xian, Chongqing, Lhasa, Guilin, and Hong Kong. You will enjoy up to a 10% discount when booking a Yangtze tour at Chinatour360.com. See our finely prepared Yangtze River Tours.

RMB is the only currency in mainland China, so we suggest that you exchange some RMB beforehand, though credit cards including Master Card, American Express Card, VISA Card, and JCB Card are acceptable on some luxury ships. However, most small shops ashore only accept cash. 

A quotation offered by ferry companies or travel agencies includes the accommodation on board and scheduled ashore excursion, but excludes medical service, tips, and other personal expenses in shops, bars, fitness centers, hair saloons, and laundry on board the ship.
