We loved it, Lisa our tour guide spoke very good english and also spanish , she made both days feel amazing, we enjoyed Guilin very much!!..
Dear travelers We booked this trip with my wife and everything was according to schedule and description. Food during the boat trip and also during the "town tour" was good and I cannot claim it. Our tour guide Lisa was very polite with good English and open for communication not only about tour, but also about normal life in China and habits. We were only two person and we paid 2780RMB what is quite big amount compare with a trips in Xian or Beijing (of course it was private tour, but there was not option for coach bus) If you have bigger group of travelers you will pay less and it make more sense in point of payment per person. One recommendation from our side; if you will have free time definitely visit "Seven Star Park - entry fee 50RMB/person" and "Seven Star ZOO with a Pandas - entry fee 36RMB/person " with a several attractions Generally I cannot claim nothing, everything was based on information on web page. Have a good trip and time in Guilin Robert&Linda..
