My family is traveling to China this month. We will visit several cities. We are looking for someone in each of the cities to accompany us as we visit important places and help us learn about the culture. My son (20) has had 4 years of Chinese, and the remaining 3 of us speak no Chinese. We are not necessarily looking for a "professional guide". Someone who is enthusiastic, honest, and who has some command of English (doesn't have to be perfect!) would be great. Of course, we will pay for the person's time.
We will be in Xi'an on July 13 and 14.
To add to what I wrote above, a good choice will be someone fun and a little adventurous. If you have a car that will transport the 4 of us, that's great, but not necessary (we can hire a taxi).
Let me know if you are interested, or if you know someone who you can recommend! :)
