Tour Guide in Hangzhou.

My family is making an overnight trip to Hangzhou in late Dec.

We are likely to arrive early in the morning and leave Hangzhou late morning or by noon the following day.

Can someone advise me if I could engage a tour guide easily on arrival to take us a round the major tourists attractions for a day in Hangzhou.

Thank you

Very easy to find if you're looking for Chinese-speaking and don't mind tons of shopping stops.

How's about English speaking guide?

By the way, is it easy for someone who speaks very basic Mandarin to move around Hangzhou himself by taking taxi? TQ

You should be able to get around on your own, yes. Either by taxi or bus -- the latter if you can read Chinese characters.

If your pronunciation isn't good, it would be good to get the Chinese characters of your destinations printed out to show taxi drivers and anyone else whom you might need to ask for directions.

Hi,

Would highly recommend a Do it yourself tour...Just buy a good map & off you go...

Maps in English were available for 5 Rmb..you can even rent a bike.
