This was a wonderful experience- good guide, interesting information, fabulous experience getting to be so close to a live Panda. The organization and implementation of getting up close and personal was certainly worth the additional fee.

Everything you thought it should be. The guide was very good and helpful, covers a big area so a lot of walking was involved.

Great tour. Great guide. Safe driver. Sam spoke excellent English. He picked us up at 7.30am to get to the base early. It's 92 acres so a fair bit of walking but Sam took us to all the best places, without a guide you may get lost! He was v informative. By 11.30 it's v crowded, get there early!

It was a great experience and our Guide was very knowledgeable. Especially when having very limited time this tour is amazing as the Guide knows exactly where to go to see the pandas. The research base is enormous and we would have easily wasted a couple of hours in the park just by searching for the pandas. All in all it was a wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend this tour!

We had a great time at the Chengdu Panda Breeding Center. To us, it was the main reason to visit Chengdu and we were not dissapointed. Our tourguide (Kevin) picked us up at the right time, spoke very good English and could explain all that he knew about the panda's and could guide us to all the good spots in the park. Even after the tour he dropped us of at a good spot in Chengdu he recommended. We would certainly recommend this tour to others.

Absolutely recommend this tour. Communication was great. They picked us up at our hotel with Enflish speaking guide. Took us to panda reserve, provided tour and facilitated the extra panda interaction. Finished mid-day just as crowds were growing and brought us back to our hotel. Perfect all around!

The whole experience was great. Kevin was fantastic and told us not only of the pandas but also more about Chengdu and China. Your driver was also very good and drove us around savely.

Excellent - the guide was knowledgeable and friendly, spoke good English and picked me up on time. It's worth starting early since we saw the pandas at their best, before the massive crowds came out.

A great experience and a dream trip for a true pandaphile. My guide picked me up right on time at my hotel and we arrived at the center well before the crowds. The center was beautiful -- a Ritz Carlton for pandas -- in a lush, bamboo forested setting. My guide (Kevin) was friendly, but not overbearing, and I really enjoyed my tour.

This tour was great and our guide clearly knew how and where to get the best views. He was a great character and set out from the beginning to have fun with us and get us the best Panda viewings

Everything was truly amazing, from my tour guide Andie (she's awesome; request her if you can, and tip her well, she's a wealth of knowledge and really sweet, with a very good command of English) to Sam, who ensured I got the airport on time after the tour. It seems pricey up front, but if you are a fan of pandas, this will be something you remember for the rest of your life. Can't recommend this highly enough.

Booked from the UK before we left, this visit was added to a different two week tour with another provider and it worked perfectly. The guide, a Panda Research Centre employee, met us at our hotel 10 minutes early, we picked up the only other couple on our tour and arrived at the Panda Research Centre ahead of the crowds. Our guide was enthusiastic, very informative and well worth the price for the trip. We had ample time to visit all the available viewing sites and he even arranged for us to meet up with our "parent" tour group who were on a locally arranged visit. It wasn't till we compared notes afterwards that we discovered what good value the Viator visit was! And, of course, the Pandas were captivating - busy eating and playing happily. We would recommend this visit to anyone lucky enough to be in Chengdu during a China holiday, but do go early - Pandas are morning creatures!

Seeing the Pandas was a once in a lifetime day. Our guide, Andy, was very informative and helped us have a great day.

Kevin was my tour guide and arrived right on time speaking wonderful English!! Making a last minute booking I did not know if it went through and it did thanks to Viator as this was to be a one time adventure. The tour was so informative and easily laid out and timing perfect. He was a great help with getting me in for the picture and on the end gave us a suggestion for the evening. Again with a pick up on time went to the opera and he arranged perfect front seats for one of the best entertainment shows Ever! We were thrilled with Kevin and the tour, money very well spent.
