My Chengdu tour operator, Samtour...
Brian G
, Sep 2015
My Chengdu tour operator, Samtour, and my local guide, Lobsang, were excellent! I feel I really saw the most significant parts of the area. This was honestly one of the best trips of my life and I've done a fair amount of travelling in my 56 years. I pride myself on the efficiency and non-redundancy of my touring choices, so I'm almost embarrassed to say, I'd do this same tour again next week if I could.

Private Half-Day Chengdu Panda Breeding Center Tour with Optional Panda Feeding | Jan 2020
This is a great activity that you can easily fit in one afternoon, and the Panda parc is anyway a must do if you go to Chengdu. The tour proposed is very convenient with the hotel pickup and drop off (thx to our driver mr. Pan). A special note for the guide ms. Hayley that was assigned by chance. Perfect english, very friendly, helpful and knowlegable, she made the tour a better experience.

Small group half-day Chengdu Panda Breeding Center tour | Dec 2019
Can't leave Chengdu without eating hotpot and seeing the pandas! This inexpensive tour was perfect if you just want to get there and don't mind walking around the breeding center by your own. Driver picked me up from my hotel (which was outside 3rd Ring Road, so I paid a little extra). I was contacted days before by the tour company to confirm my pick up! Then we drove to the breeding center and the we were let in without standing in line or any waiting! After that we got picked up again and droped of at any place in the city! Well organised!

Sichuan Culture Show and Hot Pot Dinner in Chengdu | Dec 2019
Travelling solo can have its downsides especially when it comes to hot pot and the amount of food so this is why I booked this tour, I didn’t want to miss out on the unmissable Chengdu experience. My guide Hayley promptly met me at my hotel and took me straight to a hot pot restaurant. She explained every detail and asked what I liked to eat. She then helped me navigate the correct way to eat hot pot. After a relaxing dinner we walked the short distance to the opera theatre where Hayley made sure I was comfortable before the show. The show is interesting but the best part is seeing the face mask dance where there masks change. After the show Hayley took me back to my hotel doorstep. It was a great night and I really enjoyed talking to a local person.

Once in a life time trip

Private Panda Rescue Center Volunteer with panda feeding for a Day | Dec 2019
arrived at Wolong panda centre and was quickly put to work cleaning up the enclosure (removing bamboo & scooping poo) whilst a hungry panda watched my every move. It was great to see how well looked after they are. After cleaning, had the chance to feed a panda before wandering the centre and watching the pandas do their thing. I then got to feed a baby panda and pat it (omg cuteness overload). Then more walking around the centre before lunch at the staff canteen (delicious food). After lunch I learnt how to make panda cakes before going back to feed the panda and baby panda again before heading home. This was definitely a once in a lifetime experience and though expensive, well worth it for panda lovers. Highly recommend

Experience Chengdu: Private Tea-Making Tour of Mengdingshan Tea Plantation | Dec 2019
The trip was awesome. I took the chance to combine visiting the Bifengxia Panda Centre in the morning and then afterwards the Mengdingshan Tea Plantation. I was very happy that the operator of this tour made this possible and gave helpful advice on the timing and organization of the trip. Although the tea garden and the panda centre are close time was limited and we had to hurry a bit - yet for me this combination was perfect. Green - my tour operator and translator - was great. She was very friendly, helpful and patient in doing a lot of translation work at the tea plantation. I would clearly recommend this tour. It is a unique experience.

Sichuan Culture Show and Hot Pot Dinner in Chengdu | Dec 2019
There were 5 of us who participated in this group. The dinner was fantastic - our guide, Green, did a wonderful job explaining and showing us how to cook hot pot. Delicious! It was then a very short walk to the Opera, which was absolutely wonderful. The performers were talented and the final performance (fact-changing) was just amazing. Definitely recommend as a great way to spend an evening in Chengdu!

Private Half-Day Chengdu Panda Breeding Center Tour with Optional Panda Feeding | Dec 2019
The four of us really enjoyed this outing. Be aware that you are volunteering to help at the rescue center - so wear comfortable clothes and shoes that you don't mind getting wet and/or dirty. There was plenty of time to see all of the pandas, and two opportunities to feed them by hand. The only thing I wish we could have done was actually pet them while feeding, but overall I'd recommend this as a good day trip!

Kate was my english speaking guide, she was excellent. The tour was excellent. Kate communicated well and I learnt a lot about pandas as well as China. At the panda base, Kate ensured I could see the pandas and had the best viewing for my photos. Go in the morning before it gets busy. Highly recommended !

Cuteness Overload

Private Half-Day Chengdu Panda Breeding Center Tour with Optional Panda Feeding | Nov 2019
We only had 1 day in Chengdu and I wanted to see the Great Pandas up close and so we chose the private half day tour with feeding. Our lovely guide for the day was Hayley and she met us nice and early in our hotel. On the way to the Research Centre she was very well prepared and she gave us tons of information about Chengdu along with a map and tips for what to see and how to get there on our own if we had the time. Hayley stayed with us the whole of the day, sorting out our entrance, taking us to the locker rooms to get into our overalls for the day, escorting us round the site to our Pandas that we were looking after for the day, lunch in the staff canteen and back to our car. This made everything so simple as her English was brilliant whereas the staff at the centre struggled a little and our Chinese is non existent. The actual content for the day was so much better than just observing the Pandas as a normal visitor would. We got to clean out their shelters and go into their enclosures to replace the old food with fresh bamboo. We made the cake treats for them and then got to hand feed them twice; once in the morning and again in the afternoon. Although on each occasion, you only get to feed them them 3 pieces of carrot and it lasts no more than a minute - you are face to face with one of the most beautiful creatures on the planet and when he looks into your eyes, it is just heart melting. The experience in my opinion was unmissable. Main Tip for the day: The pandas fall asleep around lunch time and if it is hot and sunny - they take shelter somewhere and you cant see them. So make sure that when you get your free time to walk around before lunch - you make the most of watching them all eating and playing as you may not get the opportunity again if the day gets too hot.At the end of the day Hayley was also able to find out from the driver that he had no further customers after us and so were able to make a private deal to transfer us to the station for our bullet train to our next destination. This really saved us some time having to sort out a taxi with our hotel(which was Chinese and the receptionists could only communicate through a translation app) so this made the end of our day stress free. Thanks to Hayley for making our trip so enjoyable.

Great Day at the Chengdu Panda Breeding Center

Private Half-Day Chengdu Panda Breeding Center Tour with Optional Panda Feeding | Oct 2019
Jenny, our guide, arrived on time and showed us to a clean and comfortable VW Touran. In about 30 minutes we arrived at the Breeding Center where the car park was empty Jenny explained that since this was after the National Holiday and it was better to get there early to beat the traffic / queues which we did not mind at all. Jenny took us around the park. It was very peaceful and tranquil inside. No queues at all as there seemed to be just a handful of people. We were very lucky. Jenny also mentioned that the normal feeding time is between 8am to 9am so we did see a lot of the Pandas eating. We even saw Panda play fighting, and climbing trees. Managed to see the Red Pandas as well. Jenny gave us a lot of information throughout the tour. A great relaxing and enjoyable day. Definitely worth seeing the Pandas. Thank you Jenny.

Tour guide Kate was exceptional: knowledgeable, accommodating and fluent in English. The driver, Mr. Jiang, was excellent at navigating the traffic out to the Panda Base with a clean, modern vehicle. We are world travelers, and this tour is not to be missed. Kate and Mr. Jiang were the "dream team." Thanks!
