Itinerary Quick Look

Here is a suggested itinerary. We are happy to customize a tour according to your interests.

8:00–09:00 Meet Your Guide and Transfer to the Wharf

Your private guide will pick you up in the morning from your hotel in Guilin and transfer you to the wharf. The evening before your tour, your guide will call you between 7 and 8 pm to confirm your departure time.

09:00–11:30 Board the Cruise and Enjoy the Picturesque Scenery

Your guide will board the Li River cruise together with you. We will only use the 4-star boat while other travel agencies typically use a 3-star boat.

A cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo is an unforgettable experience. As you observe the stunning scenery, there's something interesting to see at almost every turn.

11:30–12:00 Lunch

Buffet lunch on board will usually be served at this time. Your guide will let you know when lunch is ready, and then you can line up and help yourself to the food.

13:00–14:00 Disembark in Yangshuo.

You may arrive in Yangshuo a little before or after 13:00 hrs, since the water flows at different speeds in different seasons.

You can choose either to cycle or go by private car – there is no price difference – and you can confirm with your guide on the day which you prefer.
