We are planning another trip to China. One of our friends will have a baby in June and we want to visit her.

She is in a small village about 3 hours drive from Taiyuan.

Her directions are vague but she says it takes 2 bus rides and a taxi to get there.

We would need a ride to the village and back a few days later.

Where would I find this service? How much should I expect to spend?

I forgot to add that it is not necessary for the driver to speak English. We will have 1 or 2 friends with us who are Chinese (4 passengers).

A compact car may not work. We will have 2 suitcases and 4 backpacks with us.

GUESTDAVE Do you mean the capital city of Shanxi Province by Taiyuan? I think you'd better give more details. The city is not a famous touristy city.

GUEST10030 It is in Shanxi province.

A small mountain village.

We will see a friend and her new baby.

I don't expect to see other tourists.
