Amazing Tibet experience in Sichuan
Henry was an informative guide who went out of his way to ensure positive experiences. Mr Wu was not only a safe and attentive driver on sometimes rough roads but also a great photographer, capturing shots of us as we toured. Henry went out of his way to talk to anyone around to help bring the place alive through stories so we had the opportunity to meet so many locals, real people, and hear about their lives. Another highlight was the opportunity to climb a 1000 year old watchtower in Danba and meet the local family who managed it. Truly magical. Henry was also a consummate foodie who provided us with great local food recommendations along the way. more
This tour is designed to be enjoyed at a relaxing pace, and will last about 5-6 hours. It is flexible, and you can start early in the morning or later at noon, whichever you prefer. Your private guide and driver will be waiting for you at the lobby of your hotel.
First we go to Jinli Ancient Street, where you can have a relaxing walk, admire the traditional-style buildings, and try various local snacks. There is so much to choose from. If you need any advice, your local guide will be on hand to say what and where you might eat.
Eventually you will reach the Heming Teahouse. It’s almost 100 years old, and is situated in the peaceful outdoor courtyard of a park. There’s no better way to blend in with local people’s lives than this, sitting next to them and sipping a glass of local green tea.
At the end of the day, prepare to enjoy a full hotpot feast. We will arrange the hot pot with two types of soup and an array of meat, vegetables and local dishes.
