Transfer via: Flight on our arrangement

Day 2 Yangshuo (B, L)
Sightseeing: Xingping, Yangdi Village
After having breakfast, we will drive to Xingping dock where today's hiking tour start from. Xingping is an ancient town with 63 km (39 miles) from Guilin and 25 km (15.5 miles) from Yangshuo, on the east bank of the river. The town is surrounded by enthralling scenery. Both Mural Hill and Yellow Cloth Shoal belong to this scenic area.
First we will walk along Li River to Yangdi. About 4.5 hours' hiking, we will get Yangdi, a small fishing village. The landscapes there are very spectacular, elegant mountains, winding water, delicate beach, striking waterfall, dense green bamboos and dotted villages. Yangdi is also an ideal place to enjoy the misty rain of Li River, Which seems to be a wonderland, quiet, peaceful and mysterious in spring. The hiking tour finishes here. Our vehicle will pick us up and transfer us back to Yangshuo.
Day 3 Yangshuo (B, L)
Route: Yangshuo - Fuli - Liugong - Yongcun - Yangshuo
Sightseeing: Fuli Old Town, Liugong Fishing Village
After breakfast, we will cycle for 2 hours from Yangshuo to Fuli, an ancient town along the Li River with nice traditional buildings. Then we will take our bike to the ferry boat to cross the river and begin the cycle tour on local bumping trails. Route turns more difficult for bicycle riding. After another two hours riding, we will arrive at Liugong Fishing Village. Located among beautiful carst hills, Liu Gong Village's typical ancient buildings are preserved till now. There are many footpaths between farmers fields. The Main attractions here are water-flowing cave, Liugong Three-Pond, Gold Lion Drinking Water, beauty and peach Li River, Eight-immortal Dragging a Horse and the pavilion on Riverside. The water flows very smooth and safe all long year. Then we will have free time to walk around this village.
Later afternoon, we will cycle back to Yangshuo. Visit Yongcun Village on the way.
Day 4 Yangshuo (B, L)
Routes: Yangshuo - Chaoyang -Yulong River –Gaotian- Yangshuo
Sightseeing: Yulong River, Moon Hill
In the morning, we will cycle to Yulong River. The Yulong River, also called Dragon River and this River Valley is said to rival Li River Scenic Area in beauty and prestige. The part of the river that stretches from Yulong Bridge in Baisha Town, to Gongnong Bridge near the Big Banyan Tree, is known as the Yulong River Scenic Area, and includes some spectacular scenic views along each river bank. The languid river is surrounded by a primitive, but pure, natural landscape, combined with green bamboo forests and rolling hills.
First we will take around 1 hour biking to Chaoyang dock on Yulong River, and then we will take the bike onto the bamboo raft and have a two-hour rafting on the crystal clear river. This afternoon, we will cycle around Gaotian area and have a visit to Moon Hill on the way. Moon Hill, named for the crescent shaped cave running through the moon. The journey up to the summit is an arduous one which covers 800 steep steps. The scenery overlooking the countryside through the half moon, however, is well worth the trek, which is probably the best you will get in the area.
Cycle back to Yangshuo.

We like your idea asking for feedback which is good for improvement.

1. What do you think of our guide service?
The guide service is excellent. He assists us in taking photos and video with his own camera and share with us.
2. What do you think of our driver service?
The drive service is excellent. But if he could understand a bit of English would be better.
3. What do you think of the hotel service and their breakfast?
Hotel service was also excellent however Halal meal for Muslim tourist is good if you can prepare for their convenience.

Thank you for your mail and the photo!!! We are fine and I hope you are fine too!!!
1. What do you think of our guide service?
All the guides you proposed us were excellent! Very kind and nice, we have been very happy to meet them.
2. What do you think of our driver service?
The same as the guides, excellent drivers, we had no problems and we felt safe on the road.
3. Which meal makes you memorable? Please name the reason why you like or dislike it?
The dinner with you of course! :-) However the food has been very good everywhere apart the lunch on the boat at Guilin that was really very very poor. We did not like it at all.
4. Could you please advise why you choose us to be your tour operator for your holiday?
Because we have already been in China with your T.O. and we had been satisfied.
5. Which part of sightseeing was the most memorable for you?
Many parts, from the terraces of Guilin to the old part of Lijiang to the Potala Palace, everything was very interesting! As I told you this third tour was the best one for us: the weather was fine and not foggy, many interesting things to see and people is more kind in this south part of China, also the guides. We think we will do the fourth tour in the next two years :-)
No other suggestion, everything was OK
I wish you a nice day,
A very big hug from Manuela

Our family was very happy with our tour and the services of the tour guides & drivers in each city were excellent. The hotels arranged by you were perfect for our family and the meals provided were wonderful.
Thank your for all your organizing and help with our trip. Cici in Beijing, Wendy in Xian and Lee in Quilin were all fantastic tour guides. It was wonderful to see Lee again. She was our guide in 2014 when we visited Guilin and Yangshuo. Your agency helped us with our trip that time too.
Thanks for the lovely tea cups - they will always be reminders of a special time our family had on our holiday in China.
If there are any websites you would like us to post reviews, we will be happy to do so.
My children said "It was a trip of a lifetime!" and we want to thank you for helping it go so well!
Have a good day and thanks again,

My young son felt at home with her, and she went out of her way to take care of him and entertain him during the trip. She was also very knowledgeable about most things that we had questions about. We were very satisfied with the arrangements.
I've attached a few photos of us having a great time. We were lucky to experience good weather in Nanjing as well during our travels, with no rain and warm temperatures.
Will definitely contact you when we next return to China.
