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.
  • Enjoy a Li River boat cruise and a visit to Yangshuo
  • Feast on an authentic Chinese buffet as you cruise the tributary
  • Get front-row seats for some of the world's most spectacular scenery
  • Transportation to and from Guilin, with option to overnight in Yangshuo
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.

This tour is a rip off. When booking, the description states that they will pick you up from your hotel and drop you off at downtown Guilin. This is true to an extent, only if you book the "optional" Yangshuo walking tour. The Yangshuo walking tour is "optional" but if you do

The trip was well organized. I received driver information via a trip advisor 9 pm the night before. O think it was a 3 star tour but there is little difference from a luxury tour because most of the time you want to be on the deck taking pictures . English skills was good and

I took the boat cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo. Lunch was included on board. The day of the trip it was raining, which I felt added something to the ambiance. There aren't any buildings along the way, it's pretty much all nature. I liked the experience personally, but I feel
