Local Tour Guides in Beijing 2008

So the famous summer Olympics are in China for 2008. Millions of people will be tuning in to the event where the proud Chinese will be showcasing their very best.
Does that include local private tour guides so that the overseas visitors can get the most out of the trip. Imagine the huge positive impression that would have rather than these visitors getting frustrated by the different language and food.

I think the local private tour guides of Beijing will be the real Olympic champions....
What do you think?

Are local private tour guides expensive?

Can one really put a price on gaining insight and a unique experience when they travel to a new country?
If you can get a local private tour guide for less than 10USD per hour is most exotic countries like Peru, Bolivia, Cambodia, Kenya is that not a bargain?

Personally, I have learnt so much from my interaction with private tour guides while travelling overseas that I now view it as a basic need. The personal contact and unique experience are priceless.

Have an adventure!
