Full description
Begin your day early in the morning as we pick you up at your hotel and take you to the Zhujiang Pier. From there, embark on your Li River cruise trip from Guilin to Yangshuo on our comfortable boat. Relax on the boat and take in the majestic scenery of the Li River. Glide along the water, with the hills and the rugged nature around you on all sides. Enjoy the picturesque landscape, dip your toes into the crystal clear water, see the buffalos swimming or eating water weed in the river, and the fisherman drawing the nets. Along the banks of the river, admire beautiful peaks, bamboo and rice fields, and quiet rural villages. Upon arrival in Yangshuo town, take a short rest before we get starting on our countryside cycling tour. Cycling around the Yangshuo countryside is one activity that is simply not to be missed during your time in Yangshuo.

A great Day in a unique place

We have spent a great day with Andy. First we had to drive around 1h to get to the place the Cruises depart and then spent 4h on the boat - fantastic landscape, time flies by with a small after lunch nap. Our boat was not too crowded compared to some others. Once arrived in Yangshou we enjoyed a cold drink before we started to explore the unique landscape around Yangshou. Our choice was for a motor scooter instead of a bike (it was extremely hot) and with Andy who knows every corner for a fantastic picture we were quite flexible also to reach longer distances. You need a guide to see in such short time so much as we did with Andy. The return to Guilin by car took us around an hour so we were back at our hotel around 1800. I can strongly recommend that tour with Andy who knows a lot and is very customer oriented.

Beautiful Scenery, Reliable Guide - Lots of Laughs and Photographs...

We only had one weekend in Guilin, and Andy really knew how to make most out of it! The trip was very well organized, everything went smooth, nice and easy for us. We really just had to lay back and enjoy! (Well, and pedal on the bike, of course...) What's more, Andy has a very good sense of humor. Initially we had only booked the 1 Day Guilin Li River Cruise and Yangshuo Countryside tour, but we went on the 1 day Longji Rice Terraces Private Tour with Andy the next day. This was an equally beautiful, unforgettable experience.

Super Tag, atemberaubende Landschaft, toller Guide

Andy hat unseren Tag zu einem perfekten Erlebnis gemacht. Morgens wurden wir vom Hotel abgeholt und zum Bootsanleger gefahren. Wir waren auf einem Schiff mit chinesischen Touristen, Andy hat uns während der Fahrt die Sehenswürdigkeiten gezeigt und auf englisch erklärt. Es gab die ganze Fahrt über Tee und Mittags wurde essen serviert. In Yangshou angekommen hatten wir Zeit zum bummeln um dann die Fahrradtour zu machen. Abends haben wir in yangshou nochmal Zeit bekommen um die wundervolle Stadt anzuschauen und zu essen. Dann wurden wir von Andy zurück nach Guilin zum Hotel gebracht. Andy hat uns noch viele nützliche Tipps für unsere Reise gegeben, er ist ein großartiger Guide der auf die Bedürfnisse der Gäste eingeht. Wir empfehlen ihn uneingeschränkt weiter (:
