On this full day sightseeing tour from Guilin you'll be cruising upriver for four hours, sitting in cushioned comfort in the main cabin or enjoying the open-air viewing platform.

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.

Reviewed by: Christa J, October 2016

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)
