Li River Cruise and Yangshuo Day Tour from Guilin
From US$95,00

Li River is one of the world’s most scenic waterways, a picturesque tributary surrounded by rolling hills and ancient villages. Admire the spectacular scenery on an unforgettable boat cruise and enjoy an authentic Chinese buffet lunch— topped off with a visit to Yangshuo, a riverside town famous for its karst peaks and hypnotic landscapes. A small group makes for a personalized experience, and hotel pickup adds extra flexibility.

What to Expect
Meet your guide at your Guilin hotel and head to the pier, where you’ll meet the rest of your small-group tour. Hop aboard a deluxe sightseeing vessel, where you can enjoy front row seats for the famously stunning countryside. Sit back and relax as you cruise the waters of the picturesque Li River.

Lunch will be served on this all-inclusive boat tour, so you’ll have nothing to think about. Gaze at the rolling hills and traditional riverside villages as you dig into to an authentic Chinese buffet. Your boat will dock at Yangshuo, a small town surrounded by dramatic karst peaks.

Enjoy the otherworldly scenery, said to resemble a traditional silk-screen print. You'll have plenty of time to explore the old neighborhoods on your own. Opt to stay overnight to explore Yangshuo further on your own, or choose included transportation back to Gullin.

Very disappointed. Loud and obnoxious tour guide rambled on advertising her wares for 1 1/2 hours on the bus to the pier. 4 star cruise was nice. Because we didnt pay extra for the day tour we were expected to cross town (1 - 1...More

A bit disappointed

I wasn’t told about pick up time until very late the night before (and I had to contact them about it). They did upgrade us from a group tour to a private one though, which was nice. Our driver and guide were the same person....More

Hi, our tour returned at 5 PM. It is quite hard to get a taxi when you get back. So make sure you hire a cab or other service to pick you up

I'd say this boat is a 3 star operation. As I said, everything in mainland China is for a lot of people. Do not expect a "relaxed" atmosphere american style!. You will be seating with a lot of people and will smell different... More
