    Myself, wife and adult daughter arranged a full day tour via China Highlghts to visit the Giant Buddha at Leshan, the rural village of Suji, picking tea leaves and teas at a teahouse. The trip took a total of 13 hours which we all enjoyed totally. Our driver, Mr. Zhou was excellent. He made us feel at ease with his careful driving and polite nature. He speaks limited English but enough to be understood. I highly recommend him.
