Hi George, you said that you don't need a tour guide. Can you speak Chinese? Please kindly advise. As our driver could not speak or understand English, if there is no tour guide, it would be quite difficult for both of you to communicate. Besides Nanjing and Huangshan, Hangzhou/ Suzhou/ Shanghai are all charming places to visit, and not quite far away.Whitney Liao Replied on 2013-04-09
