What to expect
  • At 8:30am, your English-speaking guide and driver will meet you at the lobby of your Guilin hotel and head to Longji Rice Terraces (also known as Dragon’s Backbone Rice Terraces). The layers of rice terraces look like dragon’s spine therefore the name. It is approximately 2 hours drive away from Guilin city limit. On your way to Longji Rice Terraces, you will see old villages with bamboo groves and wooden houses with mountains in the backdrop. You guide will explain customs and traditions of different minorities such as Yao and Zhuang to you for better appreciation.  Your first stop will be Huangluo Yao village where you could see long-haired women adorned with silver earnings and traditional red dresses. This Yao village is located on Mountain slope along the river with 30 wooden houses and over 300 in population. You will learn the secret of how locals keep their hair long and what kind shampoo they use to make their hair so dark and shining.  Then, drive to Pingan Village where you will trek from the parking lot to viewpoint No. 2 to see the rice terraces view called "One Moon with Seven Stars" and Pingan village with wooden houses. Pingan Village has a population of over 500 people. Local villagers work hard to maintain the rice terraces since the ancient time. You may take a break at the top of viewpoint No. 2 for about 30 minutes. Later, trek from viewpoint No. 2 to viewpoint No. 1. From the top of viewpoint No. 1, the rice terraces resemble the backbone of a dragon twisting and turning into distance. This is the most beautiful view of the rice terraces in Pingan village. Afterwards, you will descend to Pingan Village for lunch to sample bamboo rice, local rice wine, and smoked pork...etc. Then, drive back to Guilin hotel after lunch in the village.

When we needed to make modifications for our family Mr. Lee was very flexible and accommodating. He has worked with local and foreign tourist and we would highly recommend his services! Thank you so much for a wonderful tour of Guilin and Yangshou!

One day private tour of the rice terraces
Dec 2019 • Couples
This tour was actually better than I thought it would be. Going in December meant we pretty much had the place to ourselves and the scenery was still spectacular. Our guide, Leo, was extremely informative without being intrusive. Had lunch at an excellent cafe before going to a village. To be honest that place was a bit weird, lots of locals just standing around staring, was glad we didn’t have lunch there, but also gave us a good laugh when safely back in the car!

Just a quick line to say thank you for looking after me on my trip to Guilin. I had a great time and will have to visit again one day. A great day tour to Longji rice terraces.

A few people have asked me about my guide so hopefully they might book you as well if they decide to visit the area.

Great introduction to Chinese rice terraces
Oct 2019
My friend and I booked a one-day-tour of Longji Rice Terraces guided by Leo. We thoroughly enjoyed it and felt it was a great idea to pay for a private guide. The place is absolutely unique and stunning. Professional, friendly & knowledgeable, Leo provided great explanation of the history & local customs which made our experience even better. Would definitely recommend his service.

Dear Leo,

Many Thanks, Leo.
We all had a wonderful holiday.
Cindy was fabulous and Mr Li very gracious and a brilliant driver.

May / June next year my brother will visit. They're passing thru ShangHai sometime during a 3 month holiday O's. Hopefully, we'll visit during the short period when the rice terraces are 'water-logged'.

Shall be in touch.

Perfect!
When this listing says private tour, it means it! I thought we would be thrown in with a few other people, but, no! What a pleasant surprise!

Leo spoke great English, and was very helpful, relaxed, and kind. He really seemed to understand what would make for a perfect tour, and there was ZERO hassle.

Also, the restaurant he took us to was fantastic, which is saying something because I have a picky wife.

Gorgeous views, great experience with tour gruide
Sep 2019
We had a great time hiking the beautiful rice terraces, and the tour guide/driver were both patient and answered all of our questions. They promptly arrived at our hotel at 7:30am and drove us 2 hours to the beautiful countryside where we saw the Zhuang minority village (Ping an village) and the Longji rice terraces.

We paid 60 CNY each extra for a shuttle up the mountain and hiked down the rice terraces. We had lunch at a restaurant with a great view of the terraces (albeit it catered almost exclusively to foreigners) and got back to Guilin around 4pm.

We were with Leo wherever we go and we felt safe. This tour was wonderful experience of mine and this was not possible with Leo.

Thank you so much Leo for great experience!

Green as far as the eye can see
We had a wonderful trip to the Longshi Rich Terraces with our guide, Leo. It takes quite a while to get there by car from Guilin, but along the way he would tell us about what we were seeing, background on the local agriculture, customs and so on. It made the long ride a bit shorter. The Rice Terraces themselves are quite a sight. It’s a bit of a trek up some stairs to the views, but Leo is very attentive to his guests’ particular needs so no one will feel like they’re out of their comfort zone.

There are two viewpoints. One is at the end of a bunch of steps. It’s a 20-40 minute climb depending on your fitness. At the top there is a fairly new and easy walk of about 30 minutes to the second view point.

Highly recommend this tour.

A new favorite with breath-taking views!
Jul 2019 • Friends
We highly recommend private transport for convenience and timing. Haibo was so sweet and helpful, and could answer all of our questions. We enjoyed a hike with his mother to feed her goats. Saw great views and had a memorable experience climbing with her. We also enjoyed an evening calligraphy class with one of the neighbors. We enjoyed getting to meet locals when they stopped in to say hi or during daily walks around the village. The home-cooked meals were delicious, and accommodated the multiple allergies I have.

We highly recommend this very special place. Many thanks to everyone, including the village itself, for bringing so much life and love to our lives these past few days!

This is a tour you don’t want to miss. We almost skipped this site, but luckily last-minute changes made it possible. The rice terraces are breath-taking and so worth the drive. John was flexible with the day’s plans, tailoring them to our needs. We first visited the incredibly beautiful and authentic village of an ethnic minority people. We then reached the stunning rice terraces and got to walk around for as much or as little as we wanted. Definitely the highlight and a new top favorite of ours in all of China. After some light shopping of local, handmade goods, we enjoyed a delicious meal at a restaurant that John helped make work for all my food allergies. The driver was also great. So nice to have a private driver and tour guide that take care of all logistics, as well as prioritize safety, especially on some bumpy roads to the top of the mountain. (It does cost 50 rmb per person to take a motor car to the very top of the rice terraces, as cars and buses are not allowed up. We suggest everyone does this, as the other option is a VERY long and not-so-scenic hike up and you won’t have energy to walk around the terraces.) Highly recommend. Thanks for a memorable experience!
