You can do that. It's more convenient than going first to hotel. I think it's better to arrange through an agent. There are many taxi drivers, but I am not sure whether their English is good enough or not. Another reason is they may know all the hotels in Mandalay. But not sure about the tourist attractions in ASI.

Sorry Washington. ASI means Amarapura, Sagaing and Inwa. It'll cost about US$ 60 with English speaking driver.
