What To Expect

Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces
At 8:00 am your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel lobby in central Guilin or Yangshuo and start heading toward the foot of the mountains where Longji Rice Terraces is located (approx. 2.5 hours).

The rice terraces are built into the mountainsides like ribbons winding around from foot to top. Local villagers have been cultivating on these fields for generations since 600 years ago. Trek up the mountain among the fields while the stunning natural scenery and ethnic villages with their traditional houses feast your eyes. Admire the ​Longji Rice Terraces from the best viewing points: the Seven Stars with the Moon and the Nine Dragons and Five Tigers. Enjoy a Chinese style lunch at a local farmer's house, you'll have the chance to taste delicious local dishes, such as bamboo rice and other minority dishes. Witness one of the local custom for women to grow very long hair as long as 1 meter or longer. After the tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel by 6:00 pm.

Best thing we did in China! Amazing experience, Excellent guide

Touring the Longji Rice Terraces was the best thing we did in China. It was a beautiful day, the scenery was UN-REAL, and the meal in a local's house left us feeling like we were really a part of the culture. The tour guide (Jason) was EXCELLENT. He had the best English of anyone we met, and he was funny, knowledgable, and engaging. He even went above and beyond by helping us find a place to get our laundry done, which was surprisingly difficult. It's a bit of a drive to get there, but totally worth it. Can't recommend highly enough!
Wonderful holiday in Guilin

My 1st China trip and it is such a memorable trip as well. Booked 3 days tour with trippest and worth each penny spend. Super friendly tour guide Mr.Chasen bring me to all the attractions and though the weather is rainy most of the time here but we manage to complete all the activities without any issues. Thanks to him.
Not forgetting the pretty sweet girl Tracy Tang she helped me on the booking. It was very fast without any hassle. Thanks to her as well.
Guilin and trippest tour service love you guys! ❤️

P/S: pls request Chasen to be your tour guide. His knowledge on the city and language command is very good.
Amazing experience, with a great guide!

We had an amazing visit to the Longji Rice Terrances thanks to China Highlights and our tour guide Linda.

Linda spoke great English, she told us lots of interesting information, not just about our tour but about the Chinese culture in general. She was very professional and easygoing. She took tons of pictures for us (she's pretty much a professional photographer haha)

The tour itself was great, left our Hotel around 830 and arrived back around 530. We booked a mini group but it ended up just being my fiancé and myself. We did lots of walking, seen lots of great scenery and met lots of great people.

I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience Chinese culture and great scenery.

Thanks Linda and China Highlights
Excellent tour of rice terraces with Gary We Li

I had a great tour of the rice terraces with my guide Gary. He was very respectful and accommodating of my needs through out the tour. He picked me up at my Yangshou hotel and then went out of the way to drop me off at the Guilin airport at the end of the tour. I highly recommend Gary and this tour for a wonderful visit to of the beautiful Rice Terraces.
Wonderful day with Sunny in Guilin

I had the most delightful day with the 'Spectacular Sunny' as a guide. As I was travelling solo we spent the day in her own private car exploring the Guilin Longji Rice Terraces and visited the stunning Huangluo Yao Village to meet with the 'long hair ladies' to learn about the local traditions. The show they put on was amazing. The visit to the Guilin Longji Rice Terraces was mind blowing - such a vast landscape beautifully laid out fields with very easy walking trails through them. The actual village itself was quite steep and winding but the view at the top of the village was definitely worth it. I had such a good day with Sunny and enjoyed myself immensely that I'm pretty sure I fell asleep in her car on the way back to my hotel. 5 stars tour and service from Sunny
