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

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.

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.

‪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 ‬

This tour was excellent, very well organised and trouble free. Our guide, Jamie, was very energetic, very professional and knowledgeable, a lot of fun, spoke excellent English and she made our trip a fabulous experience. The bullet train ride to and from Leshan gave us an opportunity to see a lot of great countryside and experience a little of the Chinese way of life. The giant Buddha was amazing, both up close and from the river boat cruise and lunch at the local village was delicious. We even has some time to explore the local markets and stroll along the river. I would recommend the trip to all but don't forget to ask for Jamie.
