    We are two couples traveling together. We have been to China numerous times before - Beijing, Xian (twice), Shanghai (twice), Yangtze river cruise, Hong Kong (three times) and Macau. We will be going to Shanghai again this October, primarily to spend a few days at the new Disneyland resort.

    I researched a significant amount of information about taking a two day tour from Shanghai to Qufu to visit the various Confucius buildings with a visit to nearby Tai'an and Mt Tai, and then return to Shanghai.

    We are all over 65, but in good health, except for some knee and hip issues. My wife has two artificial knees and I need a knee replacement soon too. Even with our mobility issues, we still are very interested in Mt Tai. But we would want to take the bus up to the cable stop at Mid Heaven Gate and then take the cable car the rest of the way up -- and return down the same way.

    We can drive and walk around in Qufu to view the Confucius temple, home, cemetery, etc - but do not desire an extensive walking tour.

    Both my friend and I are SPG platinum members, so we would prefer to book at least one night at the Sheraton Four Points in Tai'an ourselves.

    We would prefer first class tickets on the high speed train from Shanghai to Taian or Qufu and then back to Shanghai from Taian or Qufu.

    We are all pretty tall and fairly large people, so we would desire a slightly larger vehicle for long-distance drives.

    We will be done with Disneyland on the afternoon of October 15 and would like to leave for Qufu (or Tai'an) early evening. We would want to return to Shanghai the evening of October 17.

    I would like to know if my proposed itinerary is reasonable for you to accommodate --- and what the cost would be - with a detailed itinerary and exact inclusions/exclusions that you would provide.

    Any suggestions, additions or changes that you would recommend to make my proposed itinerary more enjoyable, interesting, efficient, less costly or easier for the driver/guide could also be incorporated.
    Proposed itinerary:

    Sat Oct 15 - depart Shanghai Hongqiao Railway station for Qufu East Railway Station.

    Possible options - G-150 (164:05/ arrive 19/26) or G-216 (16:38/arrive 19:26) or G-158 (17:34/arrive 20:59). First class tickets online are US$91/person (plus US$5 service charge).

    Upon arrival in Qufu, we can take a taxi or we would need pickup and transfer to the hotel.

    We would prefer to stay at the Shangri La Hotel - 3 Chunqiu Road, Qufu, Shandong, 273100. We can make hotel reservations online for about $85/room - or you can make the reservations, if the cost is about the same or less.

    Sunday Oct 16 - Hotel pick up and tour of Qufu - including Confucius temple, cemetery, house, Kong Mansion, etc. Drive to Tai'an and overnight at Sheraton Four Points -- No. 6 Daidaoan Road Tai'an, Shandong, China (86)(536)8879999 (we will make hotel reservations ourselves).

    Monday, Oct 17 - Hotel pick up and tour of Mt Tai - including round trip by bus or vehicle to Mid Heaven Gate and cable car to top and back down. Drop off at Tai'an (Shandong) train station for return to Shanghai.

    Options -- G 141 (16:09/arrive 20:13), G225 (16:56/arrive 20:50) G1231 (18:48/arrive 22:30), G21 (19:00/arrive 22:35) G153 (19:17/arrive 22:52). First class tickets online are US$99/person (plus US $5 service charge)..

    Again, please advise if you are willing to work with us and what your itinerary, costs and terms would be.

    Thank you very much.
