Amazing journey. The Leshan Giant Buddha is absolutely stunning. One of the most amazing thing I've ever seen. Our guide, Audrey, was extremely charming and professional, giving us great information about this gigantic piece of art.
Some other reviews suggest that the boat is the best way to see the Buddha but I have to say that nothing can compare with the close-up experience of climbing down and then up the steps alongside the statue. It is good to get there as early as possible and also to avoid peak season. We were able to proceed straight to the steps.
Local lunch was enjoyable and chopsticks are not so difficult to use!
For me the two-hour journey from the city was also most interesting as it gave an overview of the villages, countryside and agriculture, all such a contrast to the city itself. It was just as much part of the experience and not simply a means to get there.
The guide, as with all Viator guides that I have met, was most informative.

Great day out. Its still hard to grasp the scale after seeing it. Great food included too
We had time to do both to sail to the Buddha and to walk to it. The second is more interesting.
I was met by my guide the wonderful Jeli from samtour and our driver. We drove to leshan. I chose to take the boat to the Buddha. The boat only spends about 5 mins in front of the Buddha but that was enough for a great view and some nice pictures. Aftrewards we had a very tasty lunch in a leshan restaurant. All in all another pleasant day compliments of viator and samtour
We had an amazing time in Leshan. Our guide, Andy, taught us so much and made it a great day. Lunch in the village was fantastic too.
Our best guide of our Chinese trip. Very friendly and helpful. Awesome lunch too.
Actual tour as per expectation at time of booking.
