Travel assistant in Xi'an

by shanghailu Online Now Feb 2, 2010 at 7:22 PM

Hi,
My friend and her husband are coming to Xi'an on Mar 2010. Is there any one who could be able to accompany and show them around the city?
Any assistance will be helpful.
Thanks and regards
Lucy

    Hi Lucy,
    I can highly recommend the guide we had in Xian, his name was George. An itinery was devised by us, going where we wanted and spending however long we wanted there, so you are not trapped into places you dont want to go.

    Prices were reasonable, including a driver and also the guide George. If you want further details, either email me or look on my Xian page. In the meantime Ill look for their email address.

    Our day included the Terracotta Warriors, Muslim Quarters and Great Mosque and the Small Goose Pagoda.

    Hope this helps.

    Are you looking for a paid tour guide? Or unpaid travel companion?

    Yes that was my question too. If it is a paid guide that you want you can generally hire a guide through your hotel.

    Sorry I just assumed they wanted to hire a guide, Im not sure there are too many people that would "show you around the city" with no strings attached at all!

    There ARE people on CouchSurfing who are nice and might show people around if they have free time.
    Anyway, if you still need help, email me at ellyse99@yahoo.com and I'll see what I can rake up for you -- put "VirtualTourist" and your own username (eg shanghailu) in the subject line.

    Hi Lucy - I certainly do have a fantastic guide in Beijing to also recommend, and one that many fellow VTers had recommended to me. His name is Alvin, and if you require any further information, just please ask. His price is very reasonable, slightly cheaper than George, because he is your guide, as well as your driver, so you are not paying that little bit extra for the driver as well.

    Hi, Lindy:
    I would certainly like to have Alvin's contact information if you had a pleasant trip in Beijing with his accompany in Beijing. A driver is a guide, that sounds great!
    Thank you very much!
    Lucy
