1) Talking with a couple of Italian guys who were in our same tour, we discovered we had paid about 30% more than them (they had booked this tour through their hotel, we did on this website) 2) The guide was not very helpful. She just spoke for five minutes while we were travelling, collected the money for the cableway (which was not included in the amount we had paid; it costed 50 yuan one way. It was theoretically possible to walk, but if we had done so, we wouldn’t have had enough time to join the guide again) and disappeared. She joined us again later, but didn’t give us any more information later. Her English was not so good. 3) We had very little time to visit the rice terraces (since we needed a lot of time to queue for the cableway) 4) Lunch: typical Chinese food. It was shared, abundant portions and an average quality. Negative aspect: despite the amount we paid for the tour (about 75€), no water was served, but only tea (a jug for seven people) and when we asked for some cold water, we were told “No”. 5) In my opinion it would be better to eliminate the part dedicated to the women with long hair 6) The driver picked up punctually. But he drove in a crazy and dangerous way. 7) However, the landscape is amazing and it is absolutely worth to visit the rice terraces...
