  • Li River Cruise Full Day Tour of Guilin and Yangshuo

    Take a day trip from Guilin along the impressionable Li River, twisting and turning through lush Chinese landscape that will have you 'snap happy' with the camera for the majority of the sightseeing tour! After some local, fresh catches for lunch on the way to Yangshuo, you will have the opportunity to indulge in a bit of shopping and maybe pick up some real bargains in pearl and jade, or fine Chinese paintings.

    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Li River, East of Guangxi Zhuang China

    The Li River twists and turns between lush, green rock formations known in geographic terms as karsts. The mountainous terrain is covered with lush bamboo and luxuriant forests, and the river itself is a highway of small boats from the villages that dot the shores. You'll be cruising upriver for the next four hours, sitting in cushioned comfort in the main cabin or enjoying the open-air viewing platform. Bring lots of film because this is a photographer's dream, and you'll want to capture the dramatic landscapes that Chinese artists have been painting for centuries. Lunch will be served onboard, with local favorites and fresh catches from the Li River. Your destination is the village of Yangshuo.

    Duration: 4 hours

    Stop At: West Street, East Side of Li River, Yangshuo County 541900 China

      This is likely the most touristy I have ever felt. The process of getting to the river and on the boat was ok. These boat cruises are very big business and you will be on one of about 15 very large boats. Despite the not so ideal process of navigating the masses to board, this is still an experience to do! The views from the boat were absolutely amazing and the cruise is quite long so the hubbub up front is worth it. I would vigorously suggest bringing some snacks/lunch as the meal served on the boat was pretty gross and I'm not that picky in foreign countries. We did an after tour in the village that was pretty touristy as well but we enjoyed it and would do it again. Get your snacks and water and go for it!

      Well worth doing - at almost any price actually about 79. Viator gave an almost immediate response either tour is available or not, and used Tang Tours. They were excellent. In particular they provided details of pickup times quickly. Guides were knowledgeable and very helpful

      First, this is a must do if you are able to make it to Guilin, China. Views change with every twist and turn of the river, so for anyone who enjoys photography this is especially fantastic. The tour bus arrived a few minutes late, but no problem. The tour guide spoke mostly in Chinese -- we were the only English speakers, I think -- but she came to us and spoke in English every chance she got. They arrived at the dock early, as the cruise begins at 9:30am. On the boat, the guide answered all our questions in English and pointed out a few of the main highlights. We also paid for the separate Shangri-La Theme Park tour, and felt it was worth it. That park is attractive and it's nice to see how Chinese farmers lived in the past. When the bus took us back to downtown Guilin, we informed them that we were from the Shangri-La Hotel north of town. Our guide put us in a cab for free back to our hotel. Excellent service and a great day.

      If you have a chance to go to Guilin, do it. The Li River Cruise provides you with river views that are as amazing as anywhere on the planet. The views change with every twist and turn of the river too. Our tour began with a bus ride from the Shangri-La hotel -- picked up a few minutes late -- to the dock. The cruise started at 9:30am, and we had time to stroll around the grounds at the port first. The guide spoke mostly in Chinese, but she spoke directly to us in English -- we were the only English speakers on the tour. She answered our questions in English on the cruise too. We paid extra for the Shangri-La Theme Park tour in Yangshuo, and it was worth it. We enjoyed the folkloric atmosphere there that showed scenes of old Chinese farming architecture and culture. On the ride back on the bus, they dropped everyone off near downtown Guilin, but our guide put us in a taxi for free back to our Shangri-La Hotel in Guilin north of town. An excellent and memorable day.

      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)

      The boat trip on the Li River is maybe the best activity in Guilin. If the weather is good, the view is amazing. The boat ride takes all the morning. In the afternoon you will visit Yangshuo. Remember that if you decide not to take part in any of the optional activities, you'll have to stay in Yangshuo for 4 hours. However, this is not a big problem. In Yangshuo you can do some shopping or relax in some pub.

      Wow! Guilin is amazing. You must do this tour in Guilin. We were on the boat for about 3 hours. When we first boarded it was raining and we were seated at tables downstairs. We were not too keen on this and ventured upstairs to find it had stopped raining. We stood on the upper deck for the whole three hours and did not once get tired of the magnificent views. From small bamboo rafts latching on to our boat to try and sell fruit to the beautiful mountain scenery, this was like floating in a dream. Yangshuo was full of little market type stalls all selling the same things, so we decided to do the optional tour. We are so glad we did. We went to a village and sat on a water buffalo, got to watch the cormorants dive for fish, hold the bamboo stick the cormorants were on and visit the Shangri La village. We would strongly recommend doing the optional tour which was RMB200 each. Don't know what we would have done waiting in Yangshuo for four hours. On the way back to our hotel our guide told us the Shangri La Hotel we were staying at was a bit far out for the large coach to drive to, so she got off the bus with us in the town and put us in a taxi to our hotel and the company paid for it. We thought this was incredible customer care.

      A great day out. It was a bit of a surprise when they told us that we'd have to fork out more cash to partake in the afternoon's activities, but we did and had a great time.

      No shopping stops either, outstanding!

      The Li River Cruise is lovely and Yangshuo is so beautiful with breath-taking scenery. It is definately underrated and undeservedly placed in the shadow of the more famous Guilin. My big criticism was that this is a full day tour yet when we arrived in Yangshuo, we were only given 1 hour to browse round or we had to pay extra for activities to fill the afternoon. This is extremeley cheeky bearing in mind the amount of money we had already spent on the trip. Because we chose not to pay extra, our tour was cut short and we were taken home earlier. I thought that was terrible.

      This was the first day of 3 in Guilin, and it definitely set the tone. We loved the cruise, our tour guide who was both hilarious and knowledgeable, and the visit to Yangshuo. Even the bus rides had great views. You will stand in awe the entire day. This day alone made us fall in love with Guilin. Seeing the exact view that's on the 20 Yuan was surreal. I couldn't say enough about this trip. If you get a chance to take a country tour while in Yangshuo, I recommend it.

      Cruise of Li River was enjoyable and relaxed. Tour guide 'Shoppin' (probably spelled wrongly) had a huge amount of organisation to contend with given the multiple nationalities on board … the vast majority being Chinese . The first optional tour to Shiwai Taoyuan was less interesting and more of a gap filler - although it did have cultural routes it was more touristy in nature. The second optional tour to the Sanjie Liu Show was really very good ...only marred by a problem allocating seats at the event. However; we did see the show and enjoyed it tremendously … and the tour operator kindly refunded the cost in its entirety as a gesture of good faith given the issues we had at the event. This more than compensated for the issues and means I have no issue in recommending the tour operator again. All in all a good and busy day .
