This was another fantastic Viking experience made all the more special by our personal guide, Terry, who stayed with us from day 1 til we left. All the staff we met along the way were, as always, very welcoming and really helpful and a great credit to Viking.

We extended our trip both at the start and at the end which helped with jet lag and allowed us to explore the fantastic cities of Beijing and Shanghai ourselves. I would really recommend it.

Throughout the trip, whether by road or plane Terry our guide was there to make sure everything went smoothly. He was warm, friendly, funny, incredibly knowledgeable and a really great person. His dedication and hard work were exceptional. We did meet other guides and many of the staff on the ship and they all worked hard to make this a really special trip. Thank you all!

The ship was great, and although we had heard criticism of the build quality, we didn't see this and it was up to the exacting standard of other Viking ships we have been on.

Food on board was up to the usual very high standards we have found with Viking.

The excursions were all really great and fascinating, with more extremely knowledgeable guides. We loved every one and only wish we had more time for each - though the time was well balanced as there was lots to see.

All in all, this was another fantastic amazing cruise with a great company supported by some special and exceptional staff. Thank you so much. Can't wait for the next one!
