Full description
Join us on the Li River cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo - the centerpiece of any trip to northeastern Guangxi Province. Gorgeous Karst peaks give you a surprise at each bend of the limpid river under the blue sky. Water buffalo patrol the fields, peasants reap rice paddies, and school kids and fisherman float by on bamboo rafts. With its breathtaking scenery, life on the river is a taste of a life far removed from the concrete metropolis. Your day will begin with a pick-up at 8:20 in the morning from the hotel in Guilin. From here you will travel to Zhujiang pier, where you will board the boat. The cruise lasts approximately 5-hours (from 9:00 - 14:00). During this time you will enjoy stunning scenery of the Li River. Finally, to finish the day, we will enjoy a wander through Yangshuo town and a roam down the famous West Street. Your day will end at approximately 4 pm, when you will be dropped-off back at your hotel.

Our tour guide Andy was very attentive and helpful, his English was excellent. The tour was perfectly organised, including assistance with fulfilling all the additional Covid19-related regulations The tour on the Li River is wonderful, Andy provided many interesting facts about the sights on the way, which we would have stayed unaware of as all information on the boat was only provided in Chinese. Altogether, a very enjoyable trip!

Perfect river tour

Everything was organized perfectly. Andy, the tour guide contacted us a couple of days before the tour. He arranged the transfer to the river port and back to the city when the tour had been completed. He also provided excellent guidance during the trip. The ship was comfortable, the meal was OK. I recommend this tour for everybody.
