    The reason we selected this Tour was primarily because of all the incredible offerings and inclusions it offered in one day.
    From the moment our Tour was confirmed on Viator, Mr. Wu [Tom], our Tour Organiser and Private Guide, remained in constant touch with us, ready at hand to answer all queries via email, until our arrival into Yangshuo.
    Our Tour began with a scenic drive via country roads until we reached the authetic Li River bamboo rafts departure pier. The day we took the Tour the weather was a little misty, giving the spectacular Karst landscapes that we saw during our almost hour long exciting Li River bamboo raft journey, a mystical look.
    After our raft ride, we headed straight for the jaw dropping Silver Cave. To say the stalactites and stalagmites we were treated to during our 90 minute walk through the enormous cave were mind boggling, would be an understatement! The walking path through the cave is well lit and made slip proof. There are no restrictions on how close you can go to the rock formations to take photos, of course discretion is advised. The stalactites and stalagmites are lit up throughout the cave in different colours, giving viewers a surprise at every turn. There are also unique formations called by different names, based on the visions that they can conjure up. Tickets include a free audio guide. Palanquin bearers can be hired at an extra charge for those who are mobility impared.
    After touring the cave, sampling divine street food [yam, hot chestnuts, seasonal fruits, etc.] from vendors lining the path to the Cave and shopping for souvenirs, it was off to the pedestrian West Street for a leisurely stroll. West Street which is lined with many vendors offering local merchandise, tea, food, snacks, etc. ends at the Li River bank. It was there that Tom arranged for us to take photos with a cormorant fisherman for a small fee. We could take as many photos as we wanted, much to the delight of our teenage daughters.
    Later it was onwards to Xianggong Mountain just before sunset. The drive itself through mountain roads with hills covered in persimmons was very exciting and made even better by Tom who told us the stories of the ancient Karst landscapes and rural life in Yangshuo. The climb up the mountain took almost 45 minutes each way but the view that awaited us at the top, took our breath away. Row after row and mile after mile of Karst mountains we could behold, with the Li River snaking through them. We loved it on the mountain so much that it took Tom a lot of convincing to make us go back down. He was very helpful in taking our photographs and assisting us up and down the Mountain. The climb has many steps and can be difficult for those who are mobility impared. When we came down the mountain, the sun had just set, making the steps dark in some parts, however, Tom was well equipped with a torchlight and an out stretched arm for any of us who needed assistance.
    Just before returning to our hotel, we were taken to a many centuries old home of an elderly couple. The man of the house was a descendant of a military commander who served with one of China's Emperors. To say they live in a unique abode, would be an understatement. Their house looks as if it is many centuries old, their way of life, untouched by modernity. They also had their coffins readied and tucked away in one room, in case of an eventuality! With Tom's brilliant explanations, the house and its occupants were brough to life for us.
    The day ended with us thanking Tom for ensuring our family had such an amazing New Year's Eve. We knew of course nothing would have been possible without him.
    Have no hesitation in considering this Tour because it offers so much and comes with the most amazing guide one can hope for!

    I had so much fun on this tour, my guide Lily was amazing and made sure we had a good time and were taken care of. She even helped us get train tickets at the station for our next day departure. The mountains throughout the region were beautiful and the activities of boating on the river, scootering along the rice fields and going up the hill highlighted the scenery nicely. This was my third trip with trippest and will use them again. I definitely recommend this tour and trippest as a whole!

    Andy and David (we set up two one-day tours) were both fantastic guides. They speak English very well and are awesome, fun people. They are safe and conscientious drivers and knew all the cool spots to go around the area. Andy was able to tailor our trip to what we were looking for and work within our budget. We had such a blast and would definitely call Andy again for any local tours!

    We had an amazing day on this tour. The places and sights are great. We particularly liked the ancient town.

    What is great is our guide is very flexible so if there is something specific you would like to see he is very accommodating.
    Just be aware, some of the distances between places are quite large; but given the vehicle was so comfortable this wasn't a problem.

    Overall, it was a great way to see so much amazing countryside and views of the river.

    We found Andy's contact and contacted him directly for the sunrise in Xianggong. Andy was really fast in response, arranging, speaks great English and very kind.
    We highly recommend Andy and his services to you.

    We were stuck without transportation on Xianggong Mountain and by chance we met Andy. He helped us secure transportation back to Yangshuo and even arranged a truck to return the electric bikes we rented in Xingping. He didn't leave us until he was sure we're able to get back to our hotel safely. Andy went above and beyond helping us, considering he wasn't even our tour guide!

    I'll definitely get in touch with Andy when we visit China again. Thanks again!

    ANDY was the best! Very professional and took care of everything. Even when we changed our plans, he had other ideas of things to do and we had a great time! If you want to really see Yangshuo or Guilin, work with Andy!!

    We loved the whole trip with our great German speaking guide Julia. Just the three off us wandering through the fields and enjoying the magnificent scenery. Another highlight was the lunch prepared for us by a local farmer family, very friendly people and delicious food prepared from fresh ingredients. Overall, a great day out.
