          The places we visited, our guide Huang Le (Joy) and the driver Zhou were all fantastic.
          Joy was very attentive. She contacted the hotel reception beforehand to make everything easy. Her explanations in perfect English were all very interesting, she told us about the history, traditions, religious beliefs and even science behind some local phenomena. The chauffeur Zhou was also very nice, he taught us some Chinese and his driving was very smooth, making us comfortable on the way from one place to another. I would totally recommend this tour ☺️

          Go early and consider skipping the Buddha, depending on your priorities
          If you go on this tour, I highly recommend you ask to leave Chengdu early (6:30) and tell the company what your priorities are -- I would think it should be relatively easy to customize as it is a private tour. We left at 8 a.m. and by the time we got to the pandas, 90% of them were napping because they are fed at 8 a.m., according to our guide. There is also a particularly famous panda that people were lined up to see. Our guide did not ask our interest in waiting to see this panda; we just walked by, probably because we needed to get on our way to see the Leshan Buddha. The crowds were extensive (as was our experience at every attraction in China), so that was not surprising but did make it a bit of a competition to see the pandas. We were able to see one panda awake and moving for about 20 seconds. The visit to the pandas felt rushed; having come thousands of miles to China, I would have gladly taken more time, so in retrospect, I would have shared this preference with the tour organizer ahead of time and gone earlier and/or skipped the Leshan Buddha. The buddha was interesting, but I am not sure it was worth the long drive and quick zip through the panda zoo. I also would have appreciated more information about the Leshan Buddha and Buddhism from our guide; Chinese tour groups on the boat appeared to be getting more information from their guides. Our guide was nice but reserved and maybe a bit rusty after years of pandemic-related lockdown. But my hunch is that the company has all the infrastructure to be able to create a great, customized tour, so I encourage you to give them a try.

          Brilliant experience.
          What a fantastic tour! My host, Sheldon, definitely went above and beyond when I experienced travel difficulties. I'd definitely recommend. If you're considering a trip to Chengdu, give it a go. The panda tour was definitely a highlight.

          Very bad experience in Panda base
          We had very bad experience in the Panda base. As it locates in the city, there is reallyyyy crowded. It basically is a panda zoo. Sure There are many pandas there but you can hardly see any panda as it is too crowded. The park is very big, and pandas are split, we walked a lot with the crowded people but we can’t see panda, as wherever there is a panda, where are thousands of people crowded there ,Very exhausted in the end.and very disappointed in the end. We paid more than 150$ for this half day private tour for 2 people .The tickets are around 8$ each,if you take taxi, round trip is about 20$. It is really not worth to book tour to Panda base, you can go by yourself if you don’t mind you can barely see any panda. At least you don’t waste your money. We went there on Wednesday, and it is not the peak time for travel, and it is still full. The tour guide can’t do anything to help you seeing panda better than other people, you need to be tall enough to see the panda, like above 2.5 meters high :).

          71m Buddha Figur and how to earn tea day trip🍵
          + Started in the morning from chengdu, visited the giant Buddha by using the boats. Chilled walkthrough in some hidden streets and end of the day harvested some green tea and learned how to cook and dry. It was a really nice experience to see in detail how to win tea and talk directly to the farmer about their business and the learn about their life story. Our Tourguide Sheldon was very young but shared a lot of facts during the hole trip. He was friendly and helpfully by everything. So we really enjoyed just to follow him and not to care about driving, paying or organizing something what can be easily a bit stressfully in china. -I am only a bit disappointed that we still have 130 air pollution values. Thought will be better outside from Chengdu

          Paradise in Sichuan
          Amazing experience! Our guide Lucy was funny and personable. She Was extremely knowledgeable about the city, the history, as well as everything you wanted to know about pandas! We started our day at the panda reserve, and were able to skip a very long holiday line due to Luces great efforts to get us a priority tickets. Afterwords we went to a really nice local restaurant and tried some of the local specialties was extremely knowledgeable about the city, the history, as well as everything you wanted to know about pandas! We started our day at the panda reserve, and were able to skip a very long holiday line due to Luces great efforts to get us priority tickets. Afterwords we went to a really nice local restaurant and tried some of the neighborhood specialties. All of this was capped off by an unforgettable trip to one of the giant spice markets and personal cooking session afterwards. Overall it was a spectacular experience!

          Extremely fun and informative!
          This was such a fantastic day of adventure and knowledge! Our guide (Lucy) knew exactly everything that was needed to be known and where to go when we saw the pandas in the morning. She truly loves to give you all the knowledge she can about where she grew up. She even gave us great recommendations on what we can do on our free day before leaving. Highly recommend doing this tour when in chengdu!

          Great cultural tour in Chengdu
          My tour started with Tai Chi classes and later I went to calligraphy classes. After that I went to Huanglongxi ancient village and walk all around, I tried local food and also went to a tea house to chill out and have a rest. Sheldon was my tourist guide and during the whole trip he always answer my questions and explained me everything. Thank you so much for your patience! He was an excellent tourist guide as same as Mr Zhao, who was my driver. Definitely a great tour if you wanna experience the local culture.

          Great day in Leshan🙂
          Thanks to our super kind and experienced tour guide Lucy , and driver Zhou, we have spent an awesome day to Leshan to visit the Giant Buddha. A landmark to be seen in just 2hrs Driving distance from Chengdu city. We viewed the Buddha by boat and hike. Either is a lifetime experience. Following visiting the Buddha we had a nice lunch in a local garden restaurant to try some of the local cuisine. Delicious and priceless. If you are looking for a day trip to escape from the city , recommend this tour with Lucy, who is local, super experienced , fluent in English and most importantly a lovely person. Credits to driver zhou for touring us safe and sound 🙂

          A great private tour to appreciate the Leshan Giant Buddha
          My favorite part of my experience was that that the tour went really well. It was convenient and comfortable. The tour guide, Sheldon, spoke very good English and shared interesting facts and insights. The tour was also flexible because it allowed us to pick which type of tour we want (to climb the mountain or ride the boat). We ended up climbing the mountain and it was all worth the climb. It was the best way to appreciate the Leshan Buddha. Also, on that day, we were able to change our itinerary for our lunch venue. We wanted to try some really good dishes from Leshan, and so our tour guide brought us to a very good restaurant where we enjoyed local dishes. This private tour served its purpose. We were able to enjoy the tour according to how we want it. We did not feel constraint and rushed in any way. If you want a private tour, I would highly recommend this team and service. The tour guide, the car/transporation and the driver were all commendable.

        We got a 2-day 1-night trip with Lucy. The first day we visited the giant buddha by boat then stayed in temple for the night. We got a chance to discuss with the second master of the temple which marks a lot in my spirit. Our guide Lucy is a local in Chengdu. She's so nice and thoughtful. She shared a lot of knowledge about the region. The second day started with a kungfu class with a master who's also the head of the kungfu school in the region. He also teaches kungfu in Germany. We learned a tiny bit of kungfu spirit. I'd sure continue in the future. The climb up on the Emei mountain is quite hard. I took the cable car while Lucy guided others by stairs. It was cold bit definitely worth. Thank you again Lucy!
