    Dear John,

    Thank you very much for your enquiry.

    Yangtze Explore sails between Chongqing and Yichang. Our travel consultant will be in touch with you as soon as possible via email to discuss the details with you and arrange a Shanghai tour for you. If you would like the ship to reach Shanghai, then you may consider to take Victoria Sophia which is the only ship sailing between Chongqing and Shanghai.

    Have a nice day!
