Took the Cruise to view from the River
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.

Giant Buddha area only
Oct 2018
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.

Leshan Giant Buddha visit
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!

We enjoyed the boat ride to the Leshan Giant Buddha. The weather was nice. We really got a great view. We could see the whole Buddha from the boat. I can not do a lot of stairs so the boat was the best way to go.

Jul 2018 • Family
We visited the Leshan Giant Buddha as part of an itinerary which included a few days in Chengdu. When we visited, there had been ten days of heavy rain, so we could not make the approach by boat as planned, as the jetties were flooded! For the same reason, we could not go to the top of Mount Emei, but Lily and our guide Terry arranged alternative trips, which were equally as interesting. Terry was a brilliant guide and made everything fun and interesting. Most of our trip was arranged by Lily after contacting her by email and telling her where and what we wanted to do (we spent our first week in Fuzhou visiting our son) so she arranged to meet us from the train in Beijing and the following two weeks we were looked after by some fantastic guides. They all worked really hard to make sure we saw everything we wanted to, plus a few extra things they arranged for us too. The guides all spoke excellent English and were friendly and helpful and didn't mind answering our endless questions - so we learnt a lot about the Chinese way of life and the people, as well as just seeing the sites. I can't recommend Lily and her company highly enough, she was so helpful and efficient arranging a tailored itinerary - everything we did would have been so much harder to try to do independently as we usually do.

Leshan Buddha, Ahhhhmazing trip!!
We booked our tour to see the Leshan Buddha in Sichuan Province. Our tour guide Cassie was AMAZING!!! She made our tour incredibly easy, fun and very informative. We visited the temple and paid an additional amount to take the boat to see the Buddha from the water. Cassie took us to see a real, working fishing village where we dined on excellent local fish cooked three different ways! She is such a kind and helpful person and touring with her made our day go very smooth and worry free! Thanks so much for providing such a lovely trip, Cassie!

We booked this tour at the last minute. (the day before) Shortly after booking we received an email from Lily in the back office confirming our hotel and pickup. Lily was a very efficient, professional and prompt in her replies.

The next morning our guide Terry as there waiting at our hotel for the tour. Terry was a great guide. He was knowledgeable, had excellent English skills and was a pleasure to spend the day with.

The tour was fascinating and Terry adjusted the tour to meet our needs. The giant Buddha and the lunch at the fishing village was one of the highlights of our trip

The fast train to Leshan was a great way to travel to the site.

We could easily recommend WestChinaGo tours and if we return to Chengdu we would book them again
