    What an amazing tour! Everything was super well organized and I really loved every minute of it. Taking the train is definitely the way to go as we didn’t have to deal with traffic despite the fact that it was a holiday.

    Brief river ride of 30mins. Only stay in front of the Buddha for 5mins or so so everyone is grappling and fighting for space to take pictures. Can get rowdy on the top open air deck. To avoid the crowd, one can also view from the lower aircon deck, where tea and food are available. The road to these jetties are very narrow, during peak jams, the wait on the coach or private cars can be really long, taxis with meters are not a good idea.

    We had an Excellent Guide and took our time climbing up to the top of the local buddha by another route than the one seen in the picture. The crowds were quite large and waiting was common for anything there. The best way to really see the buddha fully is by boat on the river. Then you can appreciate the enormity of the stature.

    We spent a very good day with our guide Fifi for this tour. She was really friendly, helpfull and provided many informations on Chinese culture. Contact with Lily to prepare the tour was also perfect.

    We had a great day full of new experiences!! First, we had a high speed train travel to Leshan (sooo cool). Then, the Giant Buddha took our breath (go and see it, it's a must). Taking the river cruise was the best option to see the whole Buddha. Local history and Buddhism explanations from our guide were really useful. Finally, our lovely guide showed us the best street food places to enjoy Sichuan food, which is amazing.

    Thank you WestChinaGo for making our trip to Chengdu so special and memorable. As mentioned in multiple reviews, Lily is a pleasure to work with - responsive, efficient, resourceful, and extremely knowledgeable. Most importantly, Lily is a kind and wonderful person who truly cares about her clients and will go the extra step to make sure everything in your party is comfortable and all needs catered to. We took a 2 day tour that included Panda volunteering and the Leshan Giant Buddha and couldn't have asked for a better experience from beginning to end. Highly recommend!

    Buena opción, conoces al Buda gigante y viajas en un tren de alta velocidad, comes en el pueblo de pescadores, aunque considero que la actividad debería realizarse más temprano porque hay muchísima gente esperando bajar las escaleras para recorrer al buda

    Visitei Leshan através da agência Westchinago e só tenho elogios. A Lilly foi maravilhosa, eficiente e simpática. Graças a ela minha viagem foi perfeita. Passei 3 dias em Dujiangyang trabalhando como voluntária na Panda Base e foi a Lilly que organizou tudo pra mim. Na visita ao Leshan Giant Buda a Flora foi uma excelente companhia. Muito agradável, querida e prestativa, ela sabe muito e transmite muitas informações e histórias sobre o local. Só tenho a agradecer a Lilly e Flora que me ajudaram muitíssimo na China. Pessoas altamente confiáveis. Indico fortemente!
