I took this tour back in November. Worley met me at the hotel promptly and we headed toward the panda center about an hour away. She was full of information about the center and the city of Chengdu. Worley clearly was passionate about pandas and made the perfect host for the day! We spent the afternoon at the center. Worley helped find the best vantage points for views and photographs. This was one of the most memorable aspects of an incredible 2 week trip to China. I highly recommend this tour!
It was amazing experience. Panda cub was so cute and was able to hold her about half minute. Our tour guide Jenny was super nice and lovely. She was punctual and spoke English really well. She explained lot about Chengdu and pandas and gave lot of tips what to do and where to go in Chengdu. Must do!
A highly enjoyable day. The Panda Center is laid out remarkably well. The panda areas are spacious, natural and highly viewable. What a treat. And, as a bonus, our Viator guide was delightfully personable, well informed and quite conversive in English. Thank you for the experience.
This was changed to a full day Wolong panda volunteer. Met at my hotel by Worley and driver right on time. A couple of hours drive to the reserve. Worley gave me a lot of panda and Chengdu information. She loves the pandas very much. The day was wonderful only 3 of us as volunteers. Well organized. We cleaned the enclosures, we swept up the floors, we feed the pandas and made from scratch the panda cakes. I took the optional panda picture opportunity with a one year old panda. Ive got some amazing pictures. Lots of opportunities to walk around the reserve. They are dedicated to saving pandas.
My panda experience was great. I was picked up at my hotel on time and guided by Worley. She was very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. Definitely recommend this experience.
My day started with Rudy picking me up at my hotel and we were off to the panda breeding center. Rudy was top notch. We chatted all the way and I learned so much about him, Chengdu, Chinese culture, etc. I was glad to know that Rudy didn't just drop me off but came along and played tour guide. I saw about 10 or pandas - Tai San, Bao Bao, etc. That was so incredibly helpful because I do not speak mandarin. The only ones I didn't get to see were the red pandas because that area was under reno. After I 'held' the baby panda, I got my t-shirt, certificate and pin, and we were out. We chatted some more on the way back and he got me back to my hotel safe and sound. All around a wonderful experience!
I did the optional baby panda holding and I just wanted others to know that it is technically a baby under 2 years old but the panda was very large and you don't get to hold the panda, you get to sit next to it and put your arms around it while it's eating bamboo. You're also restricted to the areas you can touch the panda arms, shoulders, legs, top of head, back and you only get 20 seconds. The tour is also not 3 hours...the trip there and back is 3 hours, but the actual tour was about an hour and a half and it took half an hour to take photos with the panda with about 20 other people. But me being a crazy panda fan, this was totally worth it despite only having 20 seconds.
It is an amazing experience to pet a panda. I say pet because our babies were about 1.5 years old and really just sat next to us, rather than us being able to hold them. As others have mentioned, the time is short, but still a must do. I was also pleased that the facility is very nice.
The Chengdu Panda Center tour was a fantastic experience. The tour was well organised and began before the crowds started to appear. Our English-speaking guide, Mars, was wonderful she was very friendly, told us a lot about Chengdu and answered our questions. She led us through the center at a relaxed pace, making sure we didnt miss any pandas Thank you Mars!
Would highly recommend this tour when visiting Chengdu.
Woorly was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable about pandas! Communicated very well in English. Very kind and punctual, and had a great time as our tour guide!
The tour of the Panda Breeding Center in Chengdu was very, very interesting. Our guide Jenny was awesome she had a lot of information about the animals and the center itself. We went in the morning and the pandas were very mobile at that time. We particularly enjoyed seeing the babies in the incubators and also the young ones trying to crawl. We only wish they were still doing photos with the pandas, but it understandable since they don't want them to get sick. A worthwhile tour!
MARS was amazing! She got to our hotel promptly, immediately introduced herself and we started our tour. She began the tour as soon as we got into the vehicle, she briefed us on the population of China, and little a few trivial facts about this amazing province of Chengdu. Her English is excellent and demeanor charming.
When we got to the Breeding Center, she explained every stop, pointed out special things about specific pandas and was even if we know she's been there so many times, she still continued to share in our excitement especially when we got to touch the Baby Panda. Thank you so much for an amazing experience!
The trip was great. They arrived on time and the guild was very knowledgeable. It was a great experience seeing the pandas!
We had a really wonderful experience. Worley was our guide. She was very pleasant and knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. We were not rushed at all and had plenty of time for photos and video. Our guide and driver where waiting for us promptly at 7:30 am our the hotel lobby, and we were able to see the pandas while they were active and well before the crowds.
AMAZINGG! No other words can describe the day! Getting to see the Pandas up close and getting to sit next to one and have my picture taken with oneN. Truly an amazing experience! Well worth the money to be able to this once in a lifetime thing!
A great tour. Sam Yue was very helpful in rearranging my pick up. My very nice guide, Mars, had to up at 5 in the morning to make the pick up, which made me feel awful although she didn't seem to mind. She was both intelligent and very pleasant company. She went out of her way to help with my hotel. Also, she made an exceptional recommendation for some local food to try. A pork flavoured with fish thing - much much better than it sounds.
So thank you, Mars and Sam!
Guide was excellent. Got us in early in the morning when it was not crowded at all. As we were leaving, lots of school groups were showing up. Great trip
Amazing to see so many pandas and be able to take a picture with one
A wonderful lifetime experience. Our time to be with the young panda was very short, but so memorable. We both can highly recommend this trip to others who are lucky enough to be in the company of such a beautiful animal.
Super amazing! Once in a lifetime opportunity glad I did a tour as there are only a limited number of people who can go back with the Pandas thank you for an amazing tour!
Excellent tour! Great organisation. We had a private pick up from the hotel. Total time was 3 hours. Worth every cent. Don't think, just book!
