“Lily became a good friend in just one day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We spent one day with Lily a couple of years ago. I contacted her on the internet because our tour company would not book us for the bamboo raft ride on the Yulong River (They thought it was too dangerous_. Lily was most accommodating in booking the day for us.

The raft ride was fantastic. A couple of hours of drifting gently down the river with our boatman poling the raft along. Far from being dangerous, it was one of the most beautiful and relaxing times we had during 3 weeks in China !

After picking us up from our hotel she discovered that we had already been to several of the other sites she had planned for us in the afternoon. She shifted gears and took us on a long walk through the local farmland. It turned into a fascinating day looking at the life of the local Chinese.

We felt as if we were parting from a long time friend at the end of the day.

“Lilly is the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We had Lilly be our guide for our 3 full days in Yangshuo. Having Lilly take care of our itinerary in Yangshuo after visiting Hong Kong and Beijing on our own prior was such a treat. Lilly is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. A local accident caused us to change our itinerary while we were there and Lilly was very flexible in reorganizing everything and making sure we still got to see everything we wanted (bamboo rafting, boating, scootering in the countryside, hiking rice terraces, light show). The temperature was also starting to rise (40 C) when we visited and Lilly made sure our planned activities were scheduled so that we would be most comfortable in the hot weather.

She goes above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of (we don't speak Mandarin and she came in the late evening, having already returned home, to make sure we weren't being ripped off by our massage appointment). Thanks to her we left with only the best impression of Yangshuo. Definitely the highlight of our trip.

“Biking Yangshuo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Had a great couple days with Lilly. She took us off the beaten path and we explored all over Yangshuo from a unique and local perspective. Her English is excellent and she shared a lot about the history and development of the region and area. We had a great few days with Lilly and I highly recommend her as a guide.

“"Lilly was just perfect for our trip to Yangshuo." The John Family.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

From the moment she met us at the airport after a very delayed flight, with her welcoming smile and warm personality, we knew we were in good hands. We were a family of four, and had an amazing time in Yangshuo, cycling, bamboo rafting, visiting the rice terraces, exploring villages and cormorant fishing Lily is so helpful and flexible when arranging schedules to cater for individual needs (and the changing weather!) Her rates are a lot more reasonable than others . Her English is excellent, and we learnt so much about the area from her. By the end of the trip we like to think that she became a good friend. She is a very genuine person, kind and helpful at all times, and fantastic fun! Highly recommended !!

“Ease and relaxing were the name of the game!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Lilly and her colleague Karen were wonderful! The schedule was made to tailor what we wanted to do and the price was VERY reasonable. Arraignments were made day of travel to make things more enjoyable and both women had great English and were a joy to be around! I would recommend using Lilly to anyone who will travel to Yangshou!
