Yvonne managed to make this tour absolutely special by not only showing us the location, but introducing us to a local who was willing to share her traditions with us. Yvonne is very upbeat and kind and tries to answer all questions. She is an excellent guide and Jenny's China Tours is a wonderful group to tour with.

Fantastic views of the rice terraces in the Guilin area of China with Eva walking up very steep steps in very hot sun to show us. The lovely lady with her very very long hair who makes beautiful clothes to sell was very interesting too. Excellent tour Thankyou so much Eva
