What an amazing tour! Everything was super well organized and I really loved every minute of it. Taking the train is definitely the way to go as we didn’t have to deal with traffic despite the fact that it was a holiday.
Great Expirence

Had a great day, The Tour guide - Sharlene. was on time, in fact she arrived early, The tour was well organised, went off without a hitch. Sharlene's English was good, and has a lot of knowledge. she was able to answer any of my questions. The Buddah was magnificent, well worth seeing. Went on a weekday to avoid the tourist jam

Hi Joseph, Very glad you had a good time with Sharlene. It is true to avoid weekend and any other public holidays :) Thank you again for taking your time to leave a review for us. Best Regards Lily Chen

Flora was a tremendous guide, and this was a tremendous and very well organised day! Flora - who is very relaxed, chatty and full of interesting information - met us at our hotel, ahead of a short metro, and hour or so train ride to Leshan. From there we were met by a driver who took us to a local hot spot for some super-delicious food. Flora ordered perfectly, and was also kind enough to jot down a few other dishes and restaurants that she thought we might enjoy back in Chengdu. The Buddha is an jaw-dropping feat of design and engineering, Giant indeed, and we took the not very hard route down to its feet, and back up and though the UNESCO national park, all the time, happily nattering away. Travelling back, we could not help but notice the traffic jams from the train window, and were very pleased that we opted for this time saving, and scenic option. We highly recommend this day tour, and Flora as a guide.

Our guide, Terry, was really nice and knowledgeable. The lunch provided was good, too even though the food was very oily. However, the trip out there took FOREVER. It was 2.5 hours each way. Also, we had to pay 70 RMB extra each to see the entire Buddha. The line to climb down was INSANE, so we skipped it. As we were waiting in line for the boat to see the Buddha, we were told that the water was too law, and the only we we could see the Buddha was by speedboat. So that's what we did. It was kind of annoying because the boat took us out there, let us take pictures for 5 minutes, and then took us back. Only about 10 minutes total trip. Plus, this trip was VERY overpriced. Only do it if you have money to burn in your pocket.

TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: Thanks for your review and affirmation of our guide service and meal arrangement. We're sorry that the travel experience did not meet your expectations. However, the heavy traffic, long queues, and crowds during the Chinese New Year Holiday was unfortunately out of our control. As mentioned in advance of your tour date, the train tickets had already sold out by the time you had booked and we offered either a cancellation with full refund or a private vehicle at an additional cost. Please understand, the private vehicle did contribute to the price which was higher than this tour typically costs, as did the fact that you requested pick up outside the 3rd Ring Road, which added to the cost and time incurred. Other operators were charging a premium rate for private vehicles as all other methods of transportation were sold out, but we did everything in our power to keep costs to a minimum for your stay. We're sorry to hear this affected your overall enjoyment of the tour but hope you had an enjoyable stay in Chengdu.

‪To say that I had a tremendous experience would be an overwhelming understatement. Amy X was exceptionally early and punctual in all of our agendas. Incredibly friendly, intuitive,knowledgeable in historical facts has keen culinary interest,well spoken English . We sang Beatles songs and had some good mood food after the tour. Should I ever venture into a business in tourism in Chengdu I would steal Amy from you. She has an indelible passion for all the great ornaments Chengdu has to offer.Thanks a million TripAdvisor and please thank Amy X. I left my heart in Chengdu. Ciao ‬

The day didn't meet expectations. I know it was golden week and the whole of China was on the move. We left the hotel at 5.50am to get to see the Buddha . When we got there the queues were 4 hours long. I suggested a plan B. The guide was very sweet but spent a lot of time on her mobile or asleep in car or train. We then spent two hours at the train station on our return trip instead of looking at local things of interest. Lunch was very nice. So the day could have been better planned.

TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: We're sorry to hear the trip did not meet your expectation. Regrettably, the time you traveled with us was Golden Week, which is incredibly busy. We tried to book the earliest train to get to Leshan Giant Buddha early enough to avoid the crowds but even with doing so there was still long queues. As an insider, we always recommend trying to avoid travel during busy public holidays so the excess crowds do not reduce the experience. We hope you were still able to enjoy your time in Chengdu.

Great experience with our guide Heather, she is very knowledgeable and fluent in English. Leshan is quite the sight to behold, impressive structure and the confluence of the three rivers is astonishing. The caves with contemporary Buddhist carvings is also beautiful -not ancient, but still imposing and beautiful.

Fantastic tour! Our wonderful guide Cassie made it more like a day hanging out with a new friend (with excellent local knowledge) than like being on a tour. The Buddha is incredible, a must see. The food in the fishing village was so delicious and the view just gorgeous. Do this tour!
