Enjoyed the day, particularly the visit to the rice terraces. Would recommend being dropped off outside the mountain village at the top of the terraces and walking down through the rice terraces into the village.
It would have been helpful to have a small map of the village as signage is not good so it can take some time to find your way onto the main route down to the car park. Simple when you know the route but very easy to take the wrong turn and get lost.
The visit to the ethnic minority village with the long haired women singing was good but this was accompanied by non-stop requests to purchase items outside the hall. One women followed us all the way back to the mini-van trying to get a sale.
This tour was a major highlight of our trip. Absolutely go to the rice terraces. The views are stunning and there is a lot of culture to be seen. Lily iwas our tour guide and she was a wealth of knowledge and spoke great English. Lunch was extremely tasty at a local cafe. Wear good shoes!
This trip was amazing!! I had Hill as my tour guide and driver. He was prompt, on time, friendly, and made sure I was happy with the day. I really lucked out and was the only one that booked the tour for the day so got him to myself! He picked me up around 8:15 and I was back at the hotel by 5:30, so still had time to have an evening. Great trip. He even arranged for my taxi to take me to the airport the next morning at a very reasonable rate. THANK YOU!! The sights were gorgeous and the fields were golden ! The weather was perfect.
Great daytrip! This trip really ensures that you experience the rice terraces in a small group and get away from the big crowd. We also did some cheaper locally booked trips but could really see the high quality of this trip good car, small group, all in English, great lunch
amazing rice terrace tour
This tour was amazing!
Quite a steep climb to the top but was worth the effort. Best to see this before harvest time.
I would highly recommend this tour! I was lucky enough to be the only one who signed up the day I went and had the guide all to myself. The guides name was Mr. Jianng... He spoke perfect English, very welcoming and really helpful with everything overall even with arrangements outside the tour! :)
Went to Ancient Chuang village, (open to tourism for 1yr vs Ping'an village, which opened 10 yrs ago). Was the most peaceful and quiet part of our China trip. Took 2h 15m to drive each way from our hotel (Guilin Bravo) and our guide Ocsar, was very knowledgeable. Great lunch, fresh bamboo, bamboo rice!
Lee our tour guide was very good, helpful and informative.
We feel like this trip was a very good introduction to China. We got to see some highlights of the cities and experience life in the country.
We appreciate our guide's flexibility when we wanted to change our itinerary (as in ending the bike ride due to traffic, and skipping Reed Flute Cave for hiking.) As a private tour, we had a choice of what we wanted to see and do with the expertise of our guide's, Bin's, knowledge of the area.
The food was delicious. We like that we ate in nice restaurants as well as local places and that we got to go to the local markets and cook a meal in a class. The hotels were comfortable (3 and 4 stars). We enjoyed the quiet scenic private boat rides, both along the Pearl River and the Li River. We liked being away from the touristy areas, so our hike from Dazhai to Ping’An was very special. Waking up in Ping’An was beautiful with mountains all around us.
We especially want to thank our guide, Bin, for taking care of our daughter's other travel arrangements and accommodations. We enjoyed good conversations with Bin.
We wish you many good travels and good health to Bin and the rest of Viator.
disappointed, the appointed local agency did not get in touch with me regarding pick time and place.Finally I had to make all the local calls,, and the numbers given in the email I received all based in shanghai
China was amazing, so were my guide. He became my Chinese friend now. We managed to see so much cultural and historical sites, while experienced local life and cuisines we would never got a chance to have if we go by ourselves. Thank you Viator!
We had a fantastic time despite hard Chinese beds. The guide was lovely and helpful and spoke excellent English. We went to some amazing places, including a village in the mountains to see the paddy fields. Food, overall, magnificent. We did a fair bit of walking so don't do this trip if unfit!
Excellent guide and driver of support vehicle, able to be flexible with itenenary. Excellent scenery. Guide chose excellent places to eat and meals, plus accommodation. Arranged tickets and transport to the light show in Yangshuo. Better to choose a cooler time of year though.
A good combination of bike ride, hiking and relaxing time surrounded by the most beautiful karst mountains. Highly recommended for the off the beaten track explorers!

This was a private tour so solo client. Pan was a great guide for the day and the pace up to the lookout for the rice terraces was just right. Lunch was excellent. A very enjoyable day.
