Great day in Leshan
bj_rnm243, 15-11-2020
Thanks to our super kind and experienced tour guide Lucy , and driver Zhou, we have spent an awesome day to Leshan to visit the Giant Buddha. A landmark to be seen in just 2hrs Driving distance from Chengdu city. We viewed the Buddha by boat and hike. Either is a lifetime experience. Following visiting the Buddha we had a nice lunch in a local garden restaurant to try some of the local cuisine. Delicious and priceless. If you are looking for a day trip to escape from the city , recommend this tour with Lucy, who is local, super experienced , fluent in English and most importantly a lovely person. Credits to driver zhou for touring us safe and sound

This was an excellent tour. It was a great way to learn some history, experience incredible cuisine in the lost village, and relax and enjoy some tea and conversation at a traditional family-run tea house. Sheldon was a great guide, and I will recommend this tour to any friends who visit Chengdu in the future.
Cool Buddha and Tea

We had a great time visiting Leshan and the giant Buddha. Sheldon, our tour guide, was very friendly and spoke great English. He gave us a lot of history and we also were to talk about US and Chengdu culture. The food spot we were taken to in old town was also incredibly declious. It was one of the best meals I’ve had in China. We also had a great driver who was safe and timely.

Overall was a great 1 day experience to see some parts outside of Chengdu.
Unique Itinerary and awesome tour guide

71m Buddha Figur and how to earn tea day trip
svennoatchina, 09-05-2021
Started in the morning from chengdu, visited the giant Buddha by using the boats. Chilled walkthrough in some hidden streets and end of the day harvested some green tea and learned how to cook and dry.

It was a really nice experience to see in detail how to win tea and talk directly to the farmer about their business and the learn about their life story.

Our Tourguide Sheldon was very young but shared a lot of facts during the hole trip. He was friendly and helpfully by everything. So we really enjoyed just to follow him and not to care about driving, paying or organizing something what can be easily a bit stressfully in china.

-I am only a bit disappointed that we still have 130 air pollution values. Thought will be better outside from Chengdu
