Our Guide Lily was very friendly and helpful. Her english was excellent and she told us very interesting things about the arey. The landscape was amazing. We had bamboo rice and other meat and vegeables wich was very delicious. We had lots of fun preparing the bamboo rice. Our children 8 and 11 had much fun walking trough this beautiful landscape. We loved wearing the rice hats.

Even if the weather does not contribute it’s impossible to not enjoy the journey. The history and fields are amazing! A once and only lifetime experience! Lily our tour guide was exceptional :) very receptive, friendly and told us every single detail about everything! The lunch at the farmers house was awesome and also delicious!

Amazing, wonderful rice terraces

This was a great tour. The rice terraces are spectacular no matter what the season. A great view of village life. Great food! A word of warning though: The road is a rough drive up the mountain, so if you have a bad back, consider giving this tour a miss.
Beautiful scenery

The scenery around the rive terraces, including the Ping'An village is very attractive. Our tour was fun and the guide was attentive, although I would encourage her to keep learning about the local history and traditions in order to deliver a more complete overview to the visitors.

This was a day of delights! The rice fields and views were spectacular. The mountain village was really neat and the local ladies show was truly interesting. The lunch meal was tasty and our driver was very pleasant. We stopped for a tea service on the way home that was also quite special.

I did this tour with Hill and it was very enjoyable. Only 3 of us, so we did it by private car. Hill has excellent English and was very knowledgeable . He tailored the tour to our interests. We took the cable car instead of hiking in the heat and I am glad we did as this as it allowed extra time which we used to visit Reed Flute Caves, which was also well worth doing. Great value and a good time !

For sure, one of the best tours we had in China. Very good English speaking and experienced guide who also drives. He brought us first to the show and then to the rice terraces. But we started from spot one which was amazing. We saw beautiful scenes and we didn't go the stairs up! Instead, we had a nice walk from spot one to two about an hour then we walked down the stairs through the village. Only few tours have this brilliant idea and we could take great pictures as it was not busy at the spot one.

Overall a great day, lunch was a lot better than your usual organised tour food, small group was a really good thing, they took us to the best place and dropped us at the top, we saw others walking up which looked awful and really hot and difficult. Nice places for coffee etc on pleasant walk down.
