Monastery stay is superrrr, with walking distances to restaurants, grocery stores! Highly recommended! Rachel Pan, my tour guide now we are friends! is really awesome. She is patient, and takes good care of me despite weather was not in our favor. Our driver, Jerry is also helpful and plan ahead to manage timings of trip.

Trip was fabulous, Lilian our guide was great and spoke English well. Mt Emei was awesome, well worth the trip, would highly reccommend this two day trip, bus trip up the mountain pretty hairy though. Professional service by Viator, most organised of our other day trips booked with other companies.

Fantastic!!
Although the weather was not great at all (it raining during 2 days), I had a great time.
Leshan and Emei Shan areas are really worth seeing... the mist even made those places more especial.
My guide was very helpful giving me all the extra details regarding the different temples and places.

The tour was an unforgettable experience--not always easy, but consistently fascinating. My guide, Andy, was well-informed, energetic, and enthusiastic. The Leshan Grand Buddha was worth the trip in itself--huge and impressive. I didn't make the long walk the down the stairway to its base--it was drizzling, and the stairs looked a bit slippery--but it was an awesome sight even from the top. The monastery at the base of Mt. Emai was serene, lovely, peaceful (or as peaceful as China gets). The ascent up Mt. Emai was a bit hair-raising--a couple of hours on steep mountain roads, many hairpin curves, and a driver who passed every vehicle we caught up with, including other tour buses--all while screaming at the other drivers for being too slow. The climb to the cable car and from the cable car to the peak was easy enough, and the ride in the cable car itself was spectacular--I gather that we were lucky, because we had a fairly clear day at least at first, and that is apparently only rarely the case. There are only a couple of minor reasons why I'm giving the tour 4 stars instead of 5. First, the description should have been more specific about what transpires on which day--I thought we were ascending the mountain on the first day and sleeping in a monastery on top--which affected when I took altitude pills. No, the monastery is at the base of the mountain. Second, my room at the monastery was deep inside it, off a conference room that a group of tourists used for meeting--very noisy--instead of on the outside, looking over the courtyard. The rooms themselves are fine, simple but comfortable, but the bathrooms are on a different level, and I did have a touch of turista--so that was a bit inconvenient. Nevertheless--a memorable experience.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

Andy was a great guide, but this tour is also not worth the expense. Again, the cost is not comparable to what you would pay in other countries with a similar economy for a similar tour. Way overpriced. Two stars based on cost.
