The river cruise scenery itself is beautiful
, Sep 2019
The other aspects of the tour weren't the greatest. Our tour operator "China Educational Tour" gave us an expected pickup time of 8am several days before and said they'd "double-confirm" the night before. Well at 9:55pm the night before they told us the time was now 7:40 and our pickup spot was a hotel a 10 minute walk away. So we lost a half hour and wouldn't have time for hostel breakfast as we originally planned. The guide did a lot of peddling on the bus of various products and an optional tour in Yangshuo. She discouraged us from using the free time in Yangshuo to explore by bike and steered us into the optional tour of "Shangri-La / Shan Shui cultural village" which was inauthentic and a waste of time and money. Yangshuo itself is overcommercialized and herds you through unending rows of touts. The meeting point for the optional tour was confusing to get to in time. My advice is to enjoy the beautiful karst on the boat ride, decline any optional tours, and get of Yangshuo by rental bike or scooter to see the countryside by land.

Er ging van alles mis doordat we geen Engels sprekende gids hadden. We hadden die wel geboekt en ervoor betaald!! We hebben een klacht ingediend bij de customer service en hopen hier op een reactie. Deze tour voldeed volstrekt niet aan onze verwachtingen, ook vanwege de goede ervaringen met onze 4 andere touren bij Viator.
