Hi,We are 3 french people doing a long road trip this summer from India to Paris, via Pakistan, China and Khirgizistan. We plan to arrive at the Pakistani-Chinese border between the 21st of August and the 30th of August. We will then need a guide from Pundjerab pass up to the Khirgiz-Chinese border, as asked by the chinese authorities. We have received the following quote from a travel agent:If the 3 motorcycles and stay in China 5 days the cost is: 1300 USD The cost in detail is as following: 1 Permit for enter China: 50 USD
2 license plates: 30 USD *3 motorcycles = 90 USD
3 Insurance for the guest: 10 USD p/p *3= 30 USD
4 Insurance for the third person: 40 USD *3 / motorcycles = 120 USD
5 Fee for the Customs: Khoqirap Pass: 200 USD for three motorcycles
Turgart pass: 200 USD for three cycles
6 Driving License: 20 USD *3= 60 USD
7 Service for the guide: 80 USD a day * 5 days= 400 USD
8 Trance for the guide: 150 USD. ( Kashgar –Khonqirap Pass and Kashgar- Irkeshitan pass).

Does anyone know a bit about the details? For instance the customs fee seems huge, and I don't know what "Trance for the guide" means... Furthermore, is there anyone willing to join us on this tour, to try and reduce the fixed costs?

Thanks a lot,
Best regards,
Samuel
