‪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 ‬

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!

This is a great tour - but what made it truly memorable and special was my guide Penny! We had a blast - and she was able to give me lots of insight into the history of what we were seeing. She also knows all the ins and outs of navigating the sites. Fabulous day! But wear walking shoes and be prepared to walk and climb! I'm very fit and thoroughly enjoyed the physical aspect of the day, but if you aren't especially fit, you might find it a bit taxing. And ask for PENNY!!!

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.

Lily Chen of West China Go Travel Service is fantastic! Before our travels, she was very helpful in answering all my questions about timing and food preferences. She communicates very well in English, and she is very knowledgeable about the Leshan Giant Buddha and surrounding area. We enjoyed the high speed train ride, seeing the Giant Buddha, and touring the temple grounds, the fishing village where we ate, and even old Leshan -- where we saw daily life in the market and nearby, as well as walked along the waterfront and old wall to get another look at the Buddha from across the river. At the end of the day, Lily even rode the metro with us to Tianfu Square to explain the Mao statue. A magnificent and memorable day, thanks to our guide Lily Chen.

First off, we really need to thank Lily Chen from the West China Go Travel Services for coordinating our tour. The week we were supposed to travel to Chengdu, our infant baby fell ill and we couldn't make the trip to China. Since we had already booked our tours, we contacted Viator and Ms. Chen kindly understood our predicament and rescheduled us for the tour the following week after our child recovered and graciously waived all trip/cancellation fees for the high-speed train. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Ivy, who was kind, pleasant and very informative. The high-speed train was fun and the Leshan Giant Buddha was awe-inspiring. It was quite busy that day so, with an infant child, we decided to forgo walking the many steps down and around the Buddha. We believe it would have been magnificent but we were just being cautious about our child. Instead, Ivy guided us one of the ferry boats that sailed in front of the Buddha for a wonderful view and photo ops. That was also a spectacular view. Ivy also took us to have a nice Chinese lunch overlooking the Minjiang River. We enjoyed the rustic and traditional experience. There was a lot of ground covered in one day to see one major, yet historical, landmark but it was well worth it. Ms. Chen and Ivy made the experience even more pleasant and enjoyable.
