My wife, myself and our 2 year old son had a fantastic experience visiting the panda base and the Leshan Buddha. Our guide Ivy was very knowledgeable and always ready to help, which just contributed to make that an unforgettable day. We highly recommend Ivy and this tour.

Best tour ever! And best tour guide ever!!! So glad that I had Amy as my tour guide. She was so easy to connect to that it felt as if I am accompanied by a friend and not a tour guide. Amy picked me up sharp at 7.45 am from my hotel and we hoped into the travel company car and reached Giant Panda Base. Since we reached there at around 8.15, which was pretty early, we avoided all the rush and got good view of all sizes of Pandas one red panda actually walked past me casually!!. Amy also helped me pick up the right souvenirs. We left the Panda base at around 10.45 am and went to South Chengdu Station to catch the high speed train to Leshan scheduled for 11.40 am. Amy shared more information about Chengdu and Leshan during the 1 hour train journey. We then headed to a local restaurant where I had some delicious food. Tofu soup was the best!! I opted to take a 30 min boat ride to see the Giant Buddha as I felt it was wiser than spending time and energy in queues to reach the Giant Buddha. Hiking trip takes you too close to the statue that you dont get a good view. The view from the boat was amazing and I would highly recommend doing that. You also get a Sleeping Buddha View if you do a boat trip. We then took a return train to Chengdu at 4.10 pm. This one took a little more time than the morning train but we were back to Chengdu South Railway Station by 5.30 pm. I was then dropped back to my hotel with some recommendations on where to have dinner. I am definitely going to visit Chengdu again for a longer duration next time to explore more of Sichuan heritage and I will contact West China Go and Amy again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOLKS!!

My wife and I were led by Jamie Jing of West China Go Travel Service on this tour. We enjoyed a good time in both the Panda Base and Leshan Giant Buddha due to Jamie's professional planning as we started early in the morning visiting the Panda Base due to the potential pre-National Day crowd. We were fortunate to see very active Panda having their breakfast and manage to mingle with a red Panda who came right up to our feet. We were blessed to see these cute animals in their natural habitat. For lunch Jamie took us to an old reputable restaurant in Leshan that serve all the popular food in Chengdu. We took the ferry to view the Giant Buddha from the river instead of walking/climbing the stairs jostling with the crowd and not able to view the full Buddha. It was a wise decision that travelers should consider when visiting Leshan Giant Buddha.
