Attraction details
Owner description: Ni hao! I am Lilly from Yangshuo, area that for millennia has been inspiring (and still does) artists and poets from all over China. I have now more than 15 years experience in guiding in Guangxi province (mainly Yangshuo, Guilin, Longji, Guizhou area), I have guided from individuals to big foreign groups, from reknowned foreign companies (coming from the Netherlands, Australia, USA, Singapore, Malaysia, Canada etc etc), to VIP's (I had the honour to guide the Royal Family of Sweden among the landscape of Yangshuo). I am a certified local guide and can arrange all sorts of excursions and tours. From one-day trips to whole packages lasting several days, from pick-up service at the airport to hotel bookings. I can tailor-make any excursion for your personal requirement.

“Lilly is the best”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We had Lilly be our guide for our 3 full days in Yangshuo. Having Lilly take care of our itinerary in Yangshuo after visiting Hong Kong and Beijing on our own prior was such a treat. Lilly is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. A local accident caused us to change our itinerary while we were there and Lilly was very flexible in reorganizing everything and making sure we still got to see everything we wanted (bamboo rafting, boating, scootering in the countryside, hiking rice terraces, light show). The temperature was also starting to rise (40 C) when we visited and Lilly made sure our planned activities were scheduled so that we would be most comfortable in the hot weather.

She goes above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of (we don't speak Mandarin and she came in the late evening, having already returned home, to make sure we weren't being ripped off by our massage appointment). Thanks to her we left with only the best impression of Yangshuo. Definitely the highlight of our trip.

“Biking Yangshuo”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Had a great couple days with Lilly. She took us off the beaten path and we explored all over Yangshuo from a unique and local perspective. Her English is excellent and she shared a lot about the history and development of the region and area. We had a great few days with Lilly and I highly recommend her as a guide.

“"Lilly was just perfect for our trip to Yangshuo." The John Family.”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

From the moment she met us at the airport after a very delayed flight, with her welcoming smile and warm personality, we knew we were in good hands. We were a family of four, and had an amazing time in Yangshuo, cycling, bamboo rafting, visiting the rice terraces, exploring villages and cormorant fishing Lily is so helpful and flexible when arranging schedules to cater for individual needs (and the changing weather!) Her rates are a lot more reasonable than others . Her English is excellent, and we learnt so much about the area from her. By the end of the trip we like to think that she became a good friend. She is a very genuine person, kind and helpful at all times, and fantastic fun! Highly recommended !!

“Ease and relaxing were the name of the game!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Lilly and her colleague Karen were wonderful! The schedule was made to tailor what we wanted to do and the price was VERY reasonable. Arraignments were made day of travel to make things more enjoyable and both women had great English and were a joy to be around! I would recommend using Lilly to anyone who will travel to Yangshou!

“Lilly is the BEST”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Lilly was perfect. There wer 3 people in our group, all around 30 years old. We did the one day Yangshuo tour, which consisted of biking through rice fields, which was fantastic, and rafting down the river on a bamboo raft. We even called her a few days later to use here again for more tours in Yangshuo.

Yangshuo is a great city, but you definitely need a tour guide to assist with getting around and seeing the wonderful places.

Lilly speaks great English, knows Yangshuo very well (she's lived in Yangshuo her whole life), and is kind and friendly. She's flexible and will adjust any tour to your needs.

Lilly's rates are cheaper than most hotel rates, so the price is great and the service is superb.

You will love Lilly!
