Beautiful cruise down the Li River!
I very much recommend this tour - a must if you go to Guilin!
It was one of my best Tours , the best one in China . Even if it was a foggy day , the magic atmosphere made it more interesting . The photos below are illustrating the reality . When in China , this Tour is a must !
This is likely the most touristy I have ever felt. The process of getting to the river and on the boat was ok. These boat cruises are very big business and you will be on one of about 15 very large boats. Despite the not so ideal process of navigating the masses to board, this is still an experience to do! The views from the boat were absolutely amazing and the cruise is quite long so the hubbub up front is worth it. I would vigorously suggest bringing some snacks/lunch as the meal served on the boat was pretty gross and I'm not that picky in foreign countries. We did an after tour in the village that was pretty touristy as well but we enjoyed it and would do it again. Get your snacks and water and go for it!
Well worth doing - at almost any price actually about 79. Viator gave an almost immediate response either tour is available or not, and used Tang Tours. They were excellent. In particular they provided details of pickup times quickly. Guides were knowledgeable and very helpful
If you have a chance to go to Guilin, do it. The Li River Cruise provides you with river views that are as amazing as anywhere on the planet. The views change with every twist and turn of the river too. Our tour began with a bus ride from the Shangri-La hotel -- picked up a few minutes late -- to the dock. The cruise started at 9:30am, and we had time to stroll around the grounds at the port first. The guide spoke mostly in Chinese, but she spoke directly to us in English -- we were the only English speakers on the tour. She answered our questions in English on the cruise too. We paid extra for the Shangri-La Theme Park tour in Yangshuo, and it was worth it. We enjoyed the folkloric atmosphere there that showed scenes of old Chinese farming architecture and culture. On the ride back on the bus, they dropped everyone off near downtown Guilin, but our guide put us in a taxi for free back to our Shangri-La Hotel in Guilin north of town. An excellent and memorable day.
First, this is a must do if you are able to make it to Guilin, China. Views change with every twist and turn of the river, so for anyone who enjoys photography this is especially fantastic. The tour bus arrived a few minutes late, but no problem. The tour guide spoke mostly in Chinese -- we were the only English speakers, I think -- but she came to us and spoke in English every chance she got. They arrived at the dock early, as the cruise begins at 9:30am. On the boat, the guide answered all our questions in English and pointed out a few of the main highlights. We also paid for the separate Shangri-La Theme Park tour, and felt it was worth it. That park is attractive and it's nice to see how Chinese farmers lived in the past. When the bus took us back to downtown Guilin, we informed them that we were from the Shangri-La Hotel north of town. Our guide put us in a cab for free back to our hotel. Excellent service and a great day.
It was amazing go through the Li river in a beautiful boat, with an amazing guide - Gary - that was very kind with me and my friends and was always with us. Highly recomended tour.
The boat was extremely nice and comfortable with a great local buffet. Lots of room on top for taking pictures of the beautiful scenery. Gary was our tour guide and was wonderful. We added on the silver caves excursion as well (however if you already did reed flute then no need....go enjoy Yangshuo)
This tour was amazing!
