It depends on specific needs of your family.
If you are traveling with young kids, a tour guide will help easing your stress as you don't have to plan the trip and lead the way while taking care of your kids. Also, a local tour guide always has inside ideas for activities and special attractions that you and your kids will enjoy.
If your kids are old enough or your families are all adults, it is also easy to travel in China with a well plan. A tour guide is essential in some attractions that need introduction, such as the Forbidden City. You can probably have more fun without a tour guide in some destinations, say beach in Sanya or Disneyland in Hong Kong.
No matter with or without a tour guide, you should plan your family trip ahead of time and resource some help from a Chinese or a travel expert.
