    Our guide, Lucy, was very knowledgeable, patient and friendly. Lucy was very flexible with the itinerary and customised it according to our requests. Lucy also shared with us many tips and popular eateries we can consider in Chengdu.

    Separately, the booking process was simple and Lily, the sales representative was responsive and informative. Highly recommend! Suitable for all types of travellers, family with elderly, family with young children, couple or even solo.

    The tour was good. Our tour guide, Ivy Wang did a wonderful job. She took care of us the whole trip and accommodated to our needs during the entire trip. We will definitely recommend her.

    This was a great tour! Our guide Abby was very knowledgeable and was an amazing guide. We enjoyed the beautiful hike easy up Mount Qingcheng to the Taoist Temple. There were so many beautiful photo opportunities and Abby allowed us to move at our own pace. The Dujiangyan irrigation system was also another beautiful site. This was a FULL day tour with lunch- which was very good as well. Abby and Lily handled all the transportation and ticket arrangements so all we had to do was to sit back and relax and take in the wonderful sites.

    First, my compliments to a very professional, knowledgeable and attentive guide Mia.
    The Dujiangyan Irrigation project truly shows the intellect and engineering abilities of the builders. If the stunning visuals are not enough, the scope of the project should impress anyone. A photography buffs delight. Sadly, only limited physically challenged access assistance available.
    The initial impression of the Mt. Qingcheng park is just as impressive as the visit. However, physically challenged access is limited to the base portion of the park and anyone who wants to visit the top needs to have great walking shoes, be willing to do some climbing, and have lots of energy for a lengthy effort.

    This was a great introduction to the outer reaches of Chengdu! Cassie was a really wonderful tour guide and Fish provided good driving service as we drove out to Mount Quingcheng and Dujiangyan. Cassie and Fish kindly postponed my departure time, since I'd just flown in from California the night before, but I recommend sticking with the early departure time. We ended up stuck in both morning 1.5 hours and evening 2.5 hours rush hour traffic which was quite bad and I'm from San Francisco so I know bad traffic!. Besides the traffic, the tour agenda was just right. Seeing the World Heritage sites was fascinating, and Cassie provided a running commentary that was both informative and entertaining. The extra transportation at Mt. Qingcheng electric cart, boat, and aerial lift was helpful to someone experiencing jet lag and feeling the effects of elevation. We stopped at a very good neighborhood restaurant for lunch, and I got to see the kitchen and some of the cooking! Be prepared to eat with chopsticks! Then we toured the Dujiangyan irrigation system which is an amazing engineering and construction project still functioning since 200BC! We didn't have time to drive to the top most viewing spot, but walked all around the project area near the river level. I'll go to the overhead viewing spot if I ever go back, but the diorama set up in the Qinyan Pavilion gave a good overview of how the project was designed, as long as Cassie was there to translate the signs! I recommend this excursion for those that want to get out of downtown Chengdu and see some of the countryside.
