  1. Can I get a local guide when I reach there for 28th and 29th of August. I have only 2 days to view all the locations for Wuyishan.

  2. Hi Tan WC,

    If you need a local guide service, you’d better book your guide service in advance. The English speaking tour guide service is quite limited. Alternatively you can visit Wuyishan with guide service since you can find English signboards in most cases.

  3. We (2 PAX) are considering the 3 day Wuyishan tour
    We arrive in Wuyishan airport at 7:50 PM on Nov. 04, 2018 and leave at 10:30 AM on Nov. 08,
    Can you please quote tour price and itinerary? We would like the C and D hotel. We understand that your 3 day tour has only 2 nights so we can book the other 2 nights ourselves on line directly with the hotel.
    A Mandarin speaking guide is OK. Joining a small group, English or Mandarin, is OK.
