We arranged a customised tour and felt ripped off. The agent only apportioned a third of the costs to the local guide and kept the rest. The food was bad as expected up in the mountains. If you prefer travelling independently, it can be done at a fraction of a cost. There is a direct flight from Shanghai to Xiangyang by Juneyao Airlines. You can book online at the Ctrip website. The train journey is long, but cost much less. At the airport, you can take a train to the Wudangshan or hire a cab (about 1 hr 30 mins). Do negotiate first. The best hotel is Wudang Jianguo. Breakfast has a great variety of western and chinese dishes and the reception staff can speak some English and arrange most activities for you. Given our bad experience, I do not encourage you to deal with a travel agency as they promised you anything,and deliver only excuses. An english speaking local guide is hard to come by, but with the hop on and off green buses allowed in the park, english maps and brochures, you can get by on your own..
