If you are looking for activities in and around Yangshou, Insight Adventure can provide what is probably the best holiday there is. We are a family of 4 (boys aged 8 and 10). In 6 days, we did: zip line; abseiling; mountain-biking; camping (2 nights) + camp fire; climbing; archery; cormorant fishing; kayaking; mud cave; light show; cooking school including visit to market; bamboo rafting; optical illusion museum; sunrise at Moon Hill; 6 hours Hiking at 'rice terraces' + night in mountain hotel. Also memorable was swimming in the river, eating on a floating restaurant, eating bamboo sticky rice, giant ice-creams in town and helping to harvest rice. All the insight staff were super-friendly and super-helpful and special mention to our wonderful guide Jordan who accompanied us for most of the week. ALL of our friends who have seen our photos are heading down to Yangshou for a holiday and they will all use Insight Adventures. Make sure you go camping (they provide all equipment including sleeping bags) to their special site. It is remote, surrounded only by farmland and stunning mountain scenery. It's a 15 minute cycle ride to a small shop selling cold beer!

We are a family of 5 members (kids 12, 14 and 17 years old) and were looking for fun and adventurous activities in Yang Shuo. Since our sons knew Insight Adventures from their yearly "China trip" from school we thought we also could give them a try on a "private basis" and we haven't been disappointed:
We went Abseiling and Kayaking with Si and have been impressed by his professionalism and attention on safety - but at the same time he was fun and humorous. Leo helped us to book a Bamboo Rafting boat and checked different possibilities to organized that day including swimming even though it was not their "own tour" they offer...so kind.
We would like to thank Insight Adventures for the wonderful experiences. For our next trip anywhere else in China we will definitely choose them again!.

Thanks so much for a great day. Not only did Si, David and Tang (of course not forgetting 'Cabbage' the friendly dog) give us a great climbing experience, they showed their own and the firm's professionalism by keeping Safety as their top priority (other firms at the climbing site were not using helmets), while also expertly encouraging our kids when nervousness crept in.
We will definitely recommend your team to anyone looking for professionalism and fun.

Insight adventures was excellent. I was able to have an excellent guide (Kha) show me a number of awesome crags in the Yangshuo area over my 4 days. I had a blast climbing to my hearts content. Leo and the rest of the office staff were great for getting the trip organized and giving out great advice for the best spots for scenery and eating around Yangshuo. I can't wait to go back!

We were four friends, spending couple days in Yangshuo and looking for adventure! Not only we had that with Simona and Frank, cycling a whole day, but also an extra one with climbing and local cooking lessons - recommended by them. They were exceptionally helpful and did way more than we expected (and they should) for us during our staying over there!! Strongly recommend their services. Marcio
