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!
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!

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.
The tour was really beautiful. It is a fairly long drive through the countryside. But this way you can have a look at the non-touristy life in China. At the beginning of the drive our guide provided us with the information about Guilin and the nature and people we were about to see.
At the park itself there was only one stop at a village of one minority people. We did not stop at the Yao village and did not see the dancing and music. But for us this wasn't a problem. On the hike up to the view point our guide paid close attention to our abilities and stopped for a break when we needed it it's not easy climbing in the heat and humidity. She also let two of us head further up while she waited at the first viewpoint with the those not wanting to climb further. The more private talk there was very enjoyable.
After the visit of the rice fields we had the option of driving to some factories or shops. I liked the fact that she wasn't aggressive of getting us there. We weren't interested and so she just had us brought back to the hotel.
So all in all it is a long drive for a shortish hike up the mountain to some marvelous views. Well worth it.
Quite a steep climb to the top but was worth the effort. Best to see this before harvest time.
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
