Know More about this tour

At 9 o'clock in the morning, your private guide will meet you at your hotel lobby. Then, you will first visit Wenshu Fang Street. As soon as you walk into the street, you will see a temple gate of a thousand years old which is the most famous monastery in Chengdu: Wenshu Monastery. Explore the monastery before wandering into Wenshu Fang Street. Wenshu Fang Street is located in a renovated old block filling with zen atmosphere. If you would like to try local food, this is the best place to go. A small restaurant named Haozidong has been running their family business here for more than a half century that all of the staff here are members of this big family and they inherited most traditional methods to cook the most original and authentic taste of Sichuan cuisine. You will take a break at 11:30am for lunch to try famous Sichuan cuisine.

After lunch, around 1:30pm, you will visit Wuhou Temple and Jinli Street. Wuhou Temple is a memorial temple for Liubei, the king of Shu Kingdom during the Three Kingdoms Period of Chinese history, as well as for his followers which has beautiful Chinese writings, paintings, and gardening that can be found in the temple. Jinli Street is right next to the temple and full of classical Chinese characteristics. Imagine yourself entering the age of Three Kingdoms with knights, swords, and horses. You will also find a Starbucks here, of course, to satisfy your craving for caffeine. Later, at around 3:30 in the afternoon, you will continue to Kuanzhai Alley (Wide & Narrow Alley) which was build in 1718 by the Manchurian after they conquered most parts of China and established Qing Dynasty. Kuanzhai Alley was build for the officers and elites of Qing dynasty that introduced a different style of architecture to this place. After its renovation in 2008, the street became a more enjoyable place to experience the contrast of traditional and modern China. Afterwards, your guide and driver will send you back to your Chengdu hotel by 6pm or you could inquiry about Sichuan Opera show with your guide for arrangement.

    My girlfriend and I had such a wonderful day on the private tour around Chengdu with your lovely guide Emily. We would highly recommend this tour and Emily as your guide as it was a nice peaceful tour with a nice slow pace with time to talk and debate cultural differences and learn the history of each other. Emily have great English skills and a lovely personality with an interest in our culture as well.
    Dispite a long dag on the tour, she took the time to help us find a phone repair service, which she called to our hostel and stayed during the repairmen to make sure that we understood what was going on and that we had a great experience.
    We are going to the opera in a few days, where Emily is going to be our guide which we are looking forward to! - Emily, thanks for a wonderful day

    This tour was sooo great! Wu the tour guide is the best, he took me everywhere and was asking me if i was okay as i was super tired from previous tourist days and took my consideration when taking me around Chengdu. I had a great time and the conversation and knowledge from Wu were an added value to the tour. 100 recommended!

    This was an amazing tour. I had some very specific items to shop to on Chengdu. Wu, my guide made special effort to help me find silk store. He also took me for traditional tea. This is a must to visit the different old shopping streets. Your trip to Chengdu would not be complete without it.

    The early part of our tour was good and our lunch was great! Jinli Street and Kuanzhai Alley were really just shopping stalls/shops - not something we were really interested in. Overall, tour was okay although our guide Wu was good.
