Hire a Guide or Just a Driver

Visiting with tour guide you will learn about the culture and history of the place on a deeper level and from a local’s perspective. A guide is your personal resource. You will be able to ask as many questions as you want. However, the cost of tour guide hire is an additional expense, whether small or large. Usually, English speaking guide (not driver, two separate persons) costs 550RMB –850RMB per day, 8-9 working hours. 

If pre-travel research and a good guide book are sufficient for you, then a much less expensive option is to hire a Non-English / Chinese speaking driver to take you around. You won’t get as much of the history, but driver can take you to the sites, wait for you and he knows where to take you and when to bring you back. If any problem arises please call our office (+86 185 1025 4530) if there is any misunderstanding with the non-English speaking driver.
