Really good tour and guide
Nov 2018 • Couples
We did 2 tours with 51 adventures. The first was to the Stone forest and the rice terraces. Our guide and driver, Gavin, was excellent and spoke good English. He offered us felixibility on the programme and we fitted in so many visits to places we had not expected. Our first nights stay was in Jian Shui, a lovely old town and Gavin recommended good place to eat and also told us about the early morning bird market, which was well worth seeing. The trip to the Rice Terraces was lovely, Gavin showed us good places for watching sunset and sunrise and also suggested a good walk through the terraces that we especially enjoyed. The accommodation arranged by Sarah was great. Gavin was also an excellent and safe driver, which was very important on the difficult narrow mountain roads.
Our second tour was the 2 day Dongchuan Redlands tour, which was again excellent. Our guide was Joe, and again he worked hard to ensure we had a good experience, taking us to good sunrise and sunset viewing spots. The scenery was lovely and great to get out of the city into the beautiful Yunnan countryside on both trips.
51 adventures may not be the cheapest tour company, but the service provided, the standard of accommodation arranged and the quality of the guides make the cost worthwhile. Would recommend.
