Question: Your questions about our tour package?:,We are a family of 4(2 senior citizens above 70), would like to get a quote for the 7 or 9 days kunming/dali/lijing/shangrila tour. Heard that now is the low season and prices are more reasonable,If possible, we don't need to fly from destination to destination, just road transport will do. Heard about ome doing 9 days. So, would like to get a quote for 7 days and 9 days. The above 4 destinations are just what i think, I am open to any suggestion you have,3 star hotels will do. Budget about RMB2000 per person,Thank you
Answer:
Dear Shireen,
Thanks for your email to chinatour,net, and I just check your tour inquiry, but there are some problem to confirm with you.
1, your budget is 2000CNY per person, and it is impossible to do 7 or 9 days tour, because only the entrance fee is around 1300CNY per person.
 
2, even it is lower season, but this is private tour, and we need arrange private guide and driver for you, so it is no difference for peak season or low season, and we just can get lower price for hotel.
 
3, From Kunming to Dali, you can think about overnight train instead of flight to save the money.
 
4, for 7 days 6 nights with 3 star hotel and one way overnight train package for Kunming, Dali, Lijiang and Shangri-la, the tour fee is around 8200CNY about 1302USD per person.
 
Please consider and reply me. thanks.
