Dear Harley and Helen:
I was hoping you could help us out, or give us some direction as to moving our family around when they come to visit us at the end of May.
We will have a group of 5 adults visiting us. They will be flying in on Thursday, May 29th arriving at 20:10 staying several days, then we wanted to drive to Jiuzhaigou. My hope is you could give us an estimate on having a driver and van large enough for 7 adults and 7-10 carry on bags. Our rough itinerary is as follows:
Thursday, May 29 arrive in Chengdu at 20:10 CZ324
Friday, May 30, depart at 8:00 to Le Shan to See Giant Budda, and Emei Mountain
Saturday, May 31, depart at 8:00 to Panda Research Base, 14:00 to the Dujiangyan Irrigation System for remainder of the day
Sunday, June 1, Day to Rest
Monday, June 2, 8:00 travel to Jiuzhaigou, stopping at several ancient cities, arriving at Hotel around 18:00
Tuesday, June 3, Visit the Park all day
Wednesday, June 4, Visit another park, travel to Guangyuan Airport so party of 5 fly to Beijing. (CA 1458 (18:00/20:05)
Driver, Peter and Vickie return to Chengdu. If distance is to far for one day, we will stay in a hotel and return to Chengdu the following morning, Thursday.
I am not certain if we need a guide, but do need a driver with a large (12 passenger van).
I am hopeful you can give me an estimate, or the number of several drivers I could contact for prices.
Thanks again for your help on this.

Wonderful to hear form you. Helen and I both emailed you last week with some tips on how to save some cost and improve on your travel route. I am not certain you got our email based on your comment above, so I am going to send again.
Please let us know if still not seeing it.
