Great way to see sights near Chengdu
The visit was fun and our guide Mark was a very friendly guide. The tour lasted longer than advertised (ours ran from 7am-7.30pm) but that's always to be expected in China, just prepare for a full day of activity. The ride from the panda base to Leshan can take about 3 hours so this tour isn't for everyone, it's a lot of sitting on the minibus. However it was a very easy and comfortable way to get to the pandas and the Buddha without the hassle of trains and buses and taxis. We had some delicious lunch in Leshan too (not included in price) which Mark helped us order.
