Very interesting tour and good tour guide. Had a nice lunch in between sites. Thought the extra payment for transport $4 and the tram fare $13 could have been built into the tour fee.
The trip was fantastic, started with a small hickup caused by very late booking, but even that was sorted out very quickly. Great guide and amazing place to see.
I was disappointed that I wasn't able to visit Mt. Emei while in the area but found this tour and was impressed!
First of all, I did not realize that this was a personal tour. All the other trips I've taken on Viator.com are with a big group. Not for this one, just you and the guide! My guide was nice and fun, which is good since just the two of us spent the whole day together.
The irrigation system was okay, a bit crowded by the color of the water was beautiful and the bridge to see right by the entrance was neat. I like the swinging bridges, would have liked to go to the temple across the longer swinging bridge but we didn't have time, too far of a walk.
The Qingcheng Mountain was great!! First of all, it's quite the adventure to get up there: you do a hike, then a (really smooth, short) boat ride and then a gondola ride to the top! (Be prepared, you'll have to pay for these tickets extra when you get there but it's very cheap and would take you hours to walk it so this is much more fun and practical way of doing it. And don't worry, still plenty of hiking and good exercise on this excursion!) There are plenty of interesting things to do on the way up, like see the temples or eat lunch at the monastery (the best Kung Pao chicken I had in China!) One very special moment for me was there is a "lock wall" where you can buy a lock and engrave it and leave it, very fun, cheap and quick to do and a lasting memory leaving my mark on the mountain forever. Lots of great opportunities for good shots on this excursion (I travel to take pics so that was the most important thing for me.)
The one thing I'd recommend is to bring warmer clothing for the top, you're in the clouds and it gets cold. I forgot mine back at the hotel and survived but was a bit chilly, my own fault.
Qing cheng mt is very scenic and off the beaten track. Getaway from Chengdu! Love the guide I had.
