Know More about this tour

Guilin and the nearby Li River display some of the most unique and beautiful terrain in all of China. This private half-day tour showcases some of the geographic and cultural highlights in and around the city of Guilin.


After hotel pickup by your friendly and informative private guide, start your half-day adventure at Fubo hill, which has both natural beauty and historic art. Beginning in the Tang Dynasty, local artisans created intricate carvings and elegant stone Buddhas.


From here it's on to Reed Flute Cave to see the impressive natural beauty of its stalactite and stalagmite formations. Locals call this cave the "Palace of Natural Arts," for reasons you'll soon discover. Next will be a stop at a local pearl market for rest, refreshments and shopping.


Then you will visit the centerpiece of Guilins riverside park, Elephant Hill. Nature created this marvel some 3.5 million years ago and its shape resembles an elephant drinking water through its trunk. Finish your tour with a vigorous climb up the hill to take in the panoramic scenery of the city, Li River and surrounding countryside before your guide returns you by private vehicle to your hotel.

    Our guide was called Sam and was really informative and nice. I really enjoyed the Reed Flute Caves, this was probably the best part of the day for me. Elephant trunk hill was nice to see, but I wish I didn't climb the hill as the view was not that impressive in comparison to other places I have visited, and lots of buildings/housing blocks kind of ruined the view. Again, Fubo hill was really just okay to see but I wouldn't choose to climb it again. I got the impression that the Buddhist statues had been placed into the cave at Fubo for the purpose of tourism, so that did not impress me. It was however nice to see the remaining Buddhist carvings that survived Mao (you can see the attempts to destroy them). Sam organised a place too take us for lunch and that was beautiful, we got lots o vegetarian options which was great for me. I enjoyed this! Overall I would go to the Reed flute caves again but the other parts I would probably not visit again. Our guide Sam really made the trip.

    If I had to choose again, I would rather just visit the Reed Flute Cave on a separate tour. The cave is awesome and shouldn't be missed while in Guilin.

    Pleasant tour with a great guide. The landscape stimulates your imagination which is a ton of fun. The cave is astonishing with its lights. The whole tour may lack of history and profound culture, it is not for people who specifically look for a cultural visit but rather a fun moment.

    We were contacted personally in our hotel by the tour company to confirm our trip which was very good. We really enjoyed our trip which was led by a Chinese guide who had studied tourism and English at university.

    Cave was nice and the tour guide was funny and friendly. The other sites were boring and crowded.
