Day Trip to Longmen & Shaolin

If I take my family of 5 on a day trip to Luoyang for a visit to the Longmen Caves and Shaolin Temples, what is the ballpark cost for a tour guide & van to pick us up from the Longmen station => Longmen caves => Shaolin Temples => Longmen station? Is 1350 RMB reasonable? Is this day trip doable or too rushed?

Also, we'll be staying at Citadine Central, what's the best way to get to the Xi'an train station for the morning high speed train to Luoyang? I'm assuming it's the same for return to Citadine at about 10 pm at night?

Thanks in advance for your help!

We did this trip in a day, no problem. We took the bullet train to Luoyang. We had a guide and driver lined up to meet us, and at the end of the day, she took us to the other train station to catch an overnight train to Beijing. It will be a full day, but it is entirely possible to do it without difficulty. Enjoy.
