"See Yangshuo's spectacular scenery combining a leisurely bike tour on quaint back roads through quiet rural villages with a bamboo boat ride among the famous karst mountains in the picture perfect Yulong River Valley. Stop for a sumptuous local lunch overlooking the 600 year old Yulong Bridge, before boarding a bamboo raft to be poled down the emerald green Yulong River - a great day out for those that want to see Yangshuo's nicest scenery at a more leisurely pace."

  • How difficult is cycling on the tour?

    Not difficult at all - it's one of our easiest!  We've designed it to take in all the quiet flat roads in the area and, as it is a private tour, we can take a route that suits you too whether you want to make it longer, shorter or even add in some hills!

  • Can we start and finish the tour from our hotel?

    You can.  Just let us know where you are staying and we'll design a route around your location.  We do like to make sure you have the right bikes to suit your heights so make sure you let us know how tall (or short) you are so we can bring them along to your hotel.

  • Is lunch included?

    Yes.  We include a great local lunch at Dragon Bridge Village.  Just let your guide know if you have any particular dietary requirements.

  • Is the tour suitable for children?

    Yes, although for the Bamboo Rafting kids are treated as adults and must be in the care of one parent.  It is two persons per raft, so a family of three (including one small child) will need two rafts - kids sitting on laps is allowed but only will one parent aboard.  Costs for kids is the same as adults.

    We reccommend kids be 5 years and above.  We have kids bikes and tag-a-longs to cater for youngsters on the bike segment.

  • Is there any traffic on the cycling tour?

    Very little.  We will take you on routes that avoid traffic.  In the event we do encounter some we'll give you fair warning and our guides are trained to safely navigate you through the day.  You might have to keep an eye out for the odd water buffalo chickens or ducks though!

  • Do I need to bring water?

    No.  We supply a clean water bottle on the bikes (you can bring your own if you like) and will keep you topped up throughout the day.

  • What happens if it rains?

    Generally, unless the rain is severe, we'll run the tour anyway.  We have ponchos available and a light rain jacket is enough for comfort.  During the operational months for this tour the rain is not cold.  However, if the rain is severe and it is not feasible to run the tour we will cancel it.  There are times when downpours are extreme that the bamboo boats mat be canceled due to rising water levels.  In cases where we need to cancel due to circumstances out of our control, such as river closures or extreme downpours, we will offer a full refund.

  • 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.
