    Hello,
    I am interested in seeing the Danxia Landform near Zhangye in Gansu Province. Unfortunately, my time is limited and I cannot take your six day tour.
    Is it possible for you to arrange a private tour for me???
    I must return to Beijing (PEK) not later than August 26, 2014. It looks like the closest airport to fly into is at Jiayuguan and then via train or private car to Zhangye. I would prefer to travel by private car. However, if private car is not possible, I will need a guide to meet me at the airport in Jiayuguan and travel with me to Zhangye.
    I understand there is also an interesting temple and grotto in the area, and as time permits would like to visit them also.
    I will make my own flight arrangements from Beijing to Jiayuguan and if you can arrange the tour, please suggest an arrival date, and costs for driver, guide, hotels and meals while I am there.
    Many thanks for your help.

Beijing is absolutely the No.1 destination in China! If you can pick up some readings about its history, maybe you will better understand the place after arrival.
