During the tour, Guide Vincent did an excellent job to ensure our tour a good experience. For example, driver found that one key screw of my mom's wheel chair was missing, he and driver immediately searched and found a hardware store to put on a replacement screw so that we could continue the tour safely. We were very happy worked with China Highlights.more

A dream come true!
Our visit to Guilin could not have been memorable. Lily our tour guide and Tao our driver made sure to create a seamless adventure to Guilin Yangshuo by being flexible with our needs at the moment and by providing the space for creativity. We maximized the time allotted and savored the countryside just the way we dreamt of. The caves, the hills, the rivers, the shows, the flavors...all of it soulfully delicious. Lily and Tao's punctuality and knowledge of the country is definitely what made this experience a positive one which we will never forget. Lily gave us the time and space when needed to absorb as much as we could without interruption. That was the cherry on top. This travel is the highlight of our experience in Asia. Thank you Lilly and Tao for such a dream come true.more

Grab your comfortable walking shoes and enjoy a fun tour in China!
Our agent, Leah, was very helpful in designing a 9-day 8 person China tour to Beijing, Shanghai and Guilin. Throughout the process of booking activities and arranging accommodations she focused on making sure we were able to see and do everything we were interested in. In addition to the “must do” activities such as The Great Wall in Beijing and the Bund in Shanghai we were able to visit a local fresh food market and see a new upcoming shopping center featuring local artisans. Highly recommend Leah for your next booking to have a wonderful tour experience in China.more

We spent 2 days in Guilin and 1 day in
We spent 2 days in Guilin and 1 day in Yangshou under China highlights. Gary was our tour guide in Guilin. He already communicated with me prior to our arrival and was waiting for us at the airport.He spoke good English and is very professional in rendering his services. At Longsheng rice terraces, he took us to path off the beaten tracks to avoid the crowd. The river cruise down Li river was amazing with beautiful karst landscape. Gary also introduced his Zhuang minority tribe culture to us. We had so much fun stuffing rice into bamboo to be burnt and got to eat it. At Yangshou, we learnt how to make the Chinese traditional fan. Overall it was an amazing experience.more

Wonderful adventure, wonderful giude.
We had a great time in Hunan Province thanks in no small part to our excellent guide, Lily, who took us to all of the major attractions throughout the region starting in Guilin and the villages in the mountains where we walked through the rice fields watching the farmers harvesting. She then took us to a little restaurant in the village where they had prepared our lunch inside bamboo, heated over hot coals. She and our driver provided us with exceptional services and were very flexible with scheduling our activities. Lily was very personable and her English is very good.more

Un sueño hecho realidad, descubriendo Guilin
Tuvimos una maravillosa experiencia en Guilin junto con nuestro guía en espa?ol Alonso. Viajamos con mi marido he hijo de 4 a?os en un tour privado por varias ciudades de china y Guilin fue igual a descubrir un tesoro. Hermosa ciudad, tranquila y llena de vida a la vez. Paseamos por las terrazas de arrozales, la cueva de la flauta t luego en barco por río Li. Todo fue espectacular, muy bien organizado por Alonso y China Highlights. Incluso nos cumplieron el sue?o de plantar 2 árboles, algo que sin ellos y su amorosa ayuda no podría haber sucedido. Un tour a medida, muy atentos a buscar evitar demoras o espacio con mucha gente. Solo palabras de agradecimiento y una gra recomendación por la amabilidad, profesionalismo y excelente atención.more

Чудесный октябрь в Китае
Мы путешествовали по Китаю 7-18 октября. Очень благодарны компании China Highlights ,в лице нашего консультанта Маши (Masha Zhou), за прекрасно организованное путешествие. Мы достаточно долго выбирали маршрут, следуя рекомендациям Маши, в итоге получили незабываемые впечатления! За время поездки мы посетили Пекин, национальный парк Чжандзядзе, Гуйлинь, Яншо, Шанхай. Все было организовано отлично, и экскурсии, и трансферы, и поездки (самолеты, поезд) по маршруту.more

China Highlights offers hand holding
China Highlights offers hand holding that you didn’t realize that you needed. Our guides, Chase in Guilin, helped us navigate away from the crowds, take countless pictures and even waited with us at the airport to ensure a friction free experience. I usually plan trips myself but China Highlights did such a good job customizing to our times and needs that if I could have the same experience everywhere, I would stop doing my own planning.more

A GOLDEN EXPERIENCE!
What a fantastic holiday in Guilin we have just returned from, organized from start to finish by our Asia Highlights representative Zac & his team. The trip exceeded our expectations in so many ways. Our tour guide was always on time, while our driver was very pleasant and ensured a smooth ride. The hotel accommodations were perfect. Trekking to the top of the mountain to enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the Li River was the ultimate highlight of our trip. The vegan cuisine available was some of the best we have ever had, with top-notch offerings from the finest restaurant in town. The team went above and beyond, accommodating all our requests with eagerness. Our final farewell dinner along the Li River marked another exceptional moment, transitioning us from one wow to another, all thanks to the meticulous arrangements by the team. The warm welcome we received throughout our journey truly made it the trip of a lifetime. We highly recommend Asia Highlights for an unforgettable experience.more

ONE OF BEST MEMORABLE TRIP: GUILIN CHINA
I had recently travelled to Guilin for 5 Days, My TripAdvisor Bella at ASIA HIGHTLIGHTS was very prompt in reply and Plan the whole tour smoothly like a home country for me. I had experienced a best Hospitality since my tour started from Guilin railway station. My driver / representative who met me at railway station was most professional. He was accompanying with me till the Hotel for make sure smooth check-in. My Tour Guide for the overnight trip for Yangsuo, Mr. Lele was awesome and took us in ancient Culture & history with his deep explanation. Apart from the viewing Mountains, the most memorable was shopping at Local market of Vegetable, fruits, self-painting with a professional teacher, the experience of handmade fan making was amazing. Thanks to ASIA HIGHTLIGHTS and experienced TripAdvisor’s Bella who made this short trip memorable. I shall you contact for the next trip. Highly recommended.more

One of the best experience in Guilin
These 3 days in Guilin and Yangsuo were great.The hotel arrangements were good especially the one in Yangsuo, nature quite and unique. Thank you for the morning breakfast they prepared since we had a early train.Our guide, Lele, a zhuang person, was very informative. He told us many culture and custom of minority nationalist. The teacher in handmade fan store was kind and patient, he knew a lot of knowledge of this Intangible Culture Heritage, but it's too professional to translate. Want to know more, a professional translator will be better. The food 'Beer fish' is a must-try when you come here. One thing should be awared, prepared some candles when driving up to the mountain, the speed was a littel fast.more

Well organized and detail-oriented
Well organized and detail-oriented!I booked a trip to China in October with them. Mr. Zac and Ms. Bella helped me to plan everything. I planned to visit Guilin, but there was no direct flight from Phnom Penh. So, they helped me to book trains and transfer for connecting. The guides, Ms. Nancy in Gangzhou, Mr. Lele in Guillin, they both were very professional and helpful. I don't need to worry anything, they even helped me to check in my flight. They took care of me well and made a beautiful memory. Thankssssss to Asia Highlights team! I highly recommend booking trips with them.more

Li River cruise from Guilin to yangshou
We travelled from Guilin to Yangshou on a four-star river cruise on the Li River accompanied by our tour guide Vincent from China Highlights tours. The views were majestic and for the first time on the 10th day of our holiday to China we weren't overwhelmed by large crowds. There was plenty of space to move around the boat and Vincent was able to point out the numerous highlights on the four-hour journey.The cruise takes in beautiful mountain peaks and wildlife such as water buffalo and multiple bird life with the highlight being the section of the mountain range that is featured on the 20-yuan bill. This, plus other highlights are not easy to spot unless you have an expert tour guide who can set you up for the perfect holiday photo.more

Чтобы понять, что такое красота, надо посетить Гуйлинь!
После посещения Гуйлиня можно смело перефразировать японскую поговорку "Не говори "Красиво", если не видел Гуйлинь!" Невероятной сказочной красоты виды открываются во время круиза по реке Ли. И не менее захватывающей была велосипедная прогулка, когда по одну руку от тебя река и завораживающие виды необыкновенных гуйлиньских гор, а по другую - рисовые поля и цветущие деревья. Просто волшебно!Большое спасибо нашему гиду – Павлу Бай за экскурсии и очень интересное общение! Павел также показал нам магазины где можно попробовать и купить вкусный чай и местную рисовую водку. Помог отправить открытки друзьям из этого сказочного города.И если вы собираетесь в Гуйлинь, обязательно выделите день и посетите Рисовые террасы Longsheng. Это обязательно стоит увидеть своими глазами!Да, еще хочу отдельно сказать про наш замечательный отель - Guilin Lijiang Waterfall Hotel. Вечером стена отеля превращается в огромный водопад и это шоу с подсветкой и музыкальным сопровождением длится примерно 15 минут. Очень эффектно!more

Incredible views and a very grounding experience
Guilin is a stunning place and so incredibly lovely to visit. While it's a little more geared towards western tourists than other parts of China, I'm still really glad we visited with China highlights, as it was super helpful to have a private driver- Guilin is a big place and a bit of a drive if you want to get out of the tourist area. Our guide Gary was the nicest human being you could ever hope to meet, full of knowledge and very open about sharing his life experiences as a local and of the local ethnic minority - we learned so much from him. We traveled to some nearby villages to visit some local farmers and partake in some very authentic experiences at a wet market - certainly not something we would have tried (or navigated) on our own, but we're so glad to have experienced it! We were also booked at a lovely hotel in Guilin, with what I can say is an absolutely unbeatable view- not a hotel I would have chosen for myself., but very glad to have experienced it!more
