"Ditch the crowds and overcrowded boats and make your way from Guilin to Yangshuo, via Xingping town, on a 2 day off-the-beaten track mini biking adventure combining boat rides along the famous Li River through scenery that few get to see."

  • Why does the tour finish in Yangshuo but no accommodation is provided there?

    This tour is a great alternative for those wishing to travel from Guilin to Yangshuo by boat - but find the crowded tourist boats unappealing - or simply want to see more of the fabulous scenery along one of China's most famous rivers in a more in depth and fun way.

    We've designed the tour this way to cater for those with a tight time frame, those who may wish to return to Guilin accommodation directly after the tour or those who may have their own accommodation in mind for further stay in Yangshuo.  We have shower facilities in our shop in Yangshuo so it is possible to freshen up after the tour finishes in the late afternoon and we can direct you to convenient transport back to Guilin, Yangshuo hotels or onward travel.

    We offer several other multi day tours that include time in Yangshuo and beyond.  Feel free to contact us for further details about a tour that suits you or advice on accommodation and activities in Yangshuo.  We've been based in Yangshuo for over 15 years and are happy to pass on our experience and knowledge of the region.

  • Is the tour difficult?

    Not at all.  But it can be if you want it to be! The route between Guilin and Yangshuo offers a myriad of routes, from easy to challenging, so we can customise the riding to your ability without compromising any of the views and experience.  Just let us know what your riding level is when you book.

  • What happens to our luggage? Do we have to carry anything?

    You only need to carry what you need for each days riding.  We reccommend a small backpack that can fit your camera, sunscreen, any extra clothing, wallet, passport, etc.  If you need us to supply a handlebar bag just let us know if you prefer one.  

    The rest of your luggage will be transported to the next destination and be waiting for you when you arrive.  

  • Can we change the itinerary or customise the tour?

    Not for publicly listed dates, but if you have your own group or date in mind, Yes.  If you want to make a private booking we can help design a tour that suits you.  You may have ideas based on any of our tours or something in mind that you can't find on our website.  Just get in contact with us and let us know what you have in mind and we'll try our best to make it happen!

  • Do you cater for vegetarians?

    Yes we do!  If you have any dietery requirements just let us know when you book in the space provided (Additional Requests).  For any severe alergies or other conditions it is best that you let us know in advance so that we can prepare and/ or advise you on what we can provide or what you might need to bring so that are well catered for.

  • What about Covid 19?

    Covid restrictions have passed for most countries and it is now possible to obtain tourist visas for China. For China you may need to provide a personal Covid test within taken 24 hours before your departure, these are only checked randomly, and can also be taken on arrival.

    During all our tours we take care to avoid any transferring of any viruses, such as Covid, through providing hand sanitisers and minimising exposure.  As with any illness, all care will be made for the participants well being during the tour and we will help with any arrangements that need to be made if the participant needs to leave the tour (this will be at the cost of the participant).  Costs for unused segments of tours cannot be refunded, for any reason, as all tour costs are paid in advance.
