Guilin, famed as "the finest scenery under heaven", is one of the regions you must visit in China. Guilin is excellent for either a leisurely vacation or an outdoor adventure. Picturesque Li River flows through Guilin and Yangshuo, with fascinating Karst peaks along the way. The magnificent Longji Rice Terraces in the minority mountain area of Longsheng has never failed to amaze its visitors.

Went on a five day tour in guilin which was beautiful, including the rice paddies, Yangshou and a river cruise. Guide Owen was an absolute pleasure to have around and really enjoyed the trip. Be wary of scams from the locals and people asking for more money - take a stand and say no when you feel like its unfair.

China Odyssey Tours made our trip to Guilin unforgettable! Miranda did an unbelievable and outstanding job organizing our time and Henry, our tour guide was very helpful. The hotel was a great location and the Li River cruise was very scenic. We really enjoyed the bicycle ride in the country. We JUST LOVED IT and definitely recommend China Odyssey Tours!!!

We had a 10 day private tour Beijing-Xian-Guilin-Shanghai arranged by Odyssey tours, only two persons in the Group. normally we dont need a guide or driver, but in the case of China where communicating and reading is difficult, it is very much recommended to make arrangement beforehand. The tour guides Ning Ning, Cindy, Chris(Fai) and Vivian all did a good... More

Guilin should be a "must see" on any traveller's visit to China! Our experience was made so much more enjoyable by the great company of our friendly, informative guide, Jessica (who "got" our Aussie humour and "gave back as good as she got") and our courteous driver, Jiang.

We had a very memorable time in Guilin, made even more enjoyable by our tour guide Gwen.While here we visited the LongJi rice terraces which are simply amazing and well worth the climb.

Even though our visit to Guilin started off a little slow with a trip to Elephant Rock and Caverns (no big deal to us), we ended up having a great time here.
