Help and info

Hi to everybody!

i would like to submit some questions:

1) is it simplet and possible to visit without a guide? or is difficult to understand the way and the signboards?

2) do yuo have some contacts for some guides?

i tryed to ask online but they ask me 3200/3600rmb for pick up at the airport at late evening, 1 full day trip (with pickup/return hotel), 2° day of exploring from morning to 16pm (with pick up from hotel) and return transfer to train station.

3) it's my first time in this place.

thank you
