Li-River Bamboo Raft Yangdi-Xingping

I am planning to do Yangdi-Xingping by bamboo raft from Giulin, so here's my plan:
If I understand correctly, I would need to go to the Main/South GL bus station (near the Railway station), take the direct buses to Yangdi Dock (costs CNY 19 and the whole journey takes about an hour). Buy ticket for Yangdi-Xingping rafting trip at the official ticket office at the entrance for CNY 216/pp which takes 2 hrs. Then take an electric power car for a free ride, from Xingping Dock to Xingping Coach Station (700m), going through Xingping Ancient Town and then take a special blue bus from Xingping to Yangshuo (how long is this bus trip and is it 20Y/pp? and does it drop me off at Yangshuo South Bus Station? near Shima Yuanpan in Kangzhan Road?
After checking out Yangshuo, go to Yangshuo North Bus Station to catch an Express Bus leaving every 20min ----1h30min wthout any stops--> to Main Bus Station.
I have conflicting info about the last Express bus leaving Yangshuo for GL. Is it 18:00? or 22:00? with a fixed ticket price of 25Y/pp? or 50Y/pp?
I need to buy the Express bus tickets at the ticket office inside the bus station,
And for the other buses (direct buses to Yangdi Dock, special blue bus from Xingping to Yangshuo, bus #2 to get around the city), can I pay the bus driver directly? or do I need to buy tickets at the bus station in advance or just before entering the bus?
Or can I buy a daily bus pass?
I would really appreciate your answer and please correct me if I am wrong.

1. You need to take the direct bus from GL Main Bus Station to Yangdi Dock directly. As I know, the ticket fare is CNY25/person and the duration is around 2 hours.
2. The bus from Xingping to Yangshuo may cost about CNY6-8/person. The duration is about 30-50 minutes. Generally, it will drop you off at Yangshuo South Bus Station.
3. As I know, the official bus from Yangshuo Main Bus Station to GL is at around 20:30.
4. Well, you may need to buy direct bus ticket from GL to Yangdi Dock, bus ticket from Xingping to Yangshuo at the bus station when you need to take the bus.
