Tour Itinerary

Day 1Arrival at Guilin (Lunch)

Meet your guide at Guilin Airport or Guilin Train Station and transfer to your hotel. Then ride bikes with your guide to visit the highlights in Guilin – West Upon your arrival at Guilin airport or train station, your tour guide & driver will welcome you there, and transfer to your hotel in Guilin city. Then ride bikes with your guide to visit the highlight in and around Guilin – Elephant Trunk Hill, West Hill and Yao Mountain. Elephant Trunk Hill is the symbol of Guilin city. West Hill is one of the most famous hills in Guilin, but it is always non-touristy and not like the other crowded scenic spots in the town. Yao Mountain is the highest hill (903.3 meters above sea level) in Guilin, with changeable seasonal views; the hilltop is easily accessible by the 1,416 meters long cableway and you can get a wonderful view of the peaks and surrounds.

Return to your hotel in late afternoon. In the evening, enjoy your free time around Guilin Central Lakes (Shan Lake and Rong Lake) area and the nearby pedestrian street.

    Good afternoon,

    Firstly, apologize to write this enquiry in English as my Chinese input is very slow. We are a group of 8 people who are interested to join your "5-day Guilin, Xingping & Yangshuo Biking Tour" and would like to start the tour on 17 Sept(Sun), 2017 and finish on 21 Sept(Thur). We have some special requests :

    1. We would arrange our accommodation on Day 1 (i.e. 17 Sept)
    2. 2 couples would like to ride on tandem bikes (that means 2 tandem bikes are required)

    With this initial plan, can you kindly send me an estimated cost per person?

    Thank you in advance,
    Simon Cheng.
