Local tours in Guilin and Yangshuo

We are planning a 6 days trip from Hong Kong to Guilin and Yangshuo for class reunion, (3 nights in Guilin,2 nights in Yangshuo ) ,we have over 15 people to join the trip,we prefer not to join a tour,Is it possible to rent a mini bus and driver when we get there? Or we just join the local tour if needed ? Please advise .

Thanks.

I suggest you contact one of,the reputable,guides in Yangshuo and Guilin. They do,use minibuses, and I imagine everyone knows everyone else. These forums are full of recommended guides, or,go on "things to do" and often the guides are ranked. Our guide was called Feng and her driver's mini bus held up to 8 people.

No need to hire a bus. You can just walk from one attraction to another. Both Guilin and Yangshuo are small. You can take a cruise or bus from Guilin to Yangshuo. In Yangshuo, you can hire bicycles everywhere. Yangshuo biking is very popular

Hi, there:

If 15 people are all energetic and wish to do biking in Yangshuo, there is not really a need to hire a mini bus. Because you can easily get around Yangshuo and its countryside on bike. Yangshuo town is not big at all that you could access all places in the town on foot.

Regarding the transfer in between guilin and yangshuo. you may use the local shuttle bus which is much cheaper than hiring a mini bus.

Seems like a private mini bus is more convinient for you 15, but still fine if going with public transport for rafting (i think you'd prefer the one Yangdi-Xingping) and rice terrace. Please do a little bit searching for information how to do the both with public bus(not complicated). You will find a lot of details.

Vist Yang di to Xingpin you can choose take public bus from Guilin train station to Yangshuo,get off the bus at Yangdi Intersection then transfer to Yangdi pier,if to rice terraces I suggest that you take a minibus,because take public bus it will take you too much time.
