Our guide, Rudy, was excellent and had actually worked at the panda reserve for 7 years so he knew exactly where to take us. Saw lots of pandas, both regular and red.
The city tour was great and I would recommend the ear cleaning. Had a delicious vegetarian lunch at the Buddhist temple. Had plenty of time for shopping. Rudy explained everthing.
Nice centre, Panda's well looked after.
Our family of four had a wonderful tour with Martin!! Highly recommend him!!! We were picked up promptly at our hotel and taken to our first stop at the Panda Breeding Center. The pandas were very cute and a favorite for our family. After a couple hours there we then spent the rest of the day enjoying the Temple, People's Park, and Kuan-Zhai Lane. We enjoyed lunch at the Buddhist monastery and enjoyable cups of tea later in the day. Martin was very knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to spend the day with him. And since we are vegetarians he was able to help us select some delicious dishes for lunch. We wish we had booked another tour in Chengdu to be able to request him as our guide again. Overall the tour was just over 9 hours, a perfect day!!
Just a fabulous day in and around Chengdu. Our guide, Mars, and the driving arrived on time at 7:30 and we were at the Panda reserve by 8. You need to be there by then or skip the whole deal - it gets crazy crowded. Mars knew her way around the complex and it saved a lot of aimless wandering looking for Pandas. We saw loads of the bears in every conceivable circumstance - eating, playing, sleeping. The babies are wondrous. Off to the largest Shrine in Chengfu and then Wide and Narrow Alleys and finally People's Park including a stop for tea.
Overall this was an excellent and in our opinion, the ONLY way to see the Pandas and then city. A busload of 50 would have only made the day slower, less flexible and more crowded. The mini-van was clean and our driver Oh did a great job getting us around.
I don't give 5-stars to anything but Samtours and Mars were just that perfect
Jeni was a great guide. She and our driver were also very kind to let us change our itinerary around at the last moment, so we could also get to the panda preserve where we got our pictures taken with the pandas. Also great food tips. Wish we had more time to spend in Chengdu.
Our trip to Chengdu was amaaaaazzzziiingg!!! From the pick up with Martin at our hotel, to the Panda Research Base- early enough to catch some fun antics, to the Wide and Narrow Alleys and the Marriage Market at the People's Park- It was ALL Awesome! Well timed plans, a knowledgeable guide, and fun ensued! The best tour I've taken. We highly recommend Samtour and Martin!
This tour was amazing and the highlight of my trip so far. My tour guide Martin arrived promptly and met me at the hotel lobby on time and was very knowledgeable. The panda park is huge and he knew exactly where to go and what to do to avoid the crowds. I had my own driver in a nice car too!! Do it!
Very enjoyable tour, our guide Sam was very knowledgable about the local area and organised our day perfectly. Although the panda centre was our highlight, the monastery was very interesting and our rest in the park in the tea house was a lovely look into Chinese culture. I would recommend this tour, as we only had two days in Chengdu it was a fantastic way to spend a day.
Great, lot's of Pandas
Today it was my birthday and I'm off to see the pandas. I was met by the wonderful Jeli and we set off at 07:30. Arriving at the base Jeli led the way and I was not disappointed with great views of the big cuddly ones. We then saw the younger pandas then the red pandas. As we were walking back we visited the film theatre and could see the value of getting to the centre early as there were large groups entering .A wonderful morning. We left for lunch and the sightseeing tour. Such a lovely day with tea and snacks at the end , A lovely birthday in the company of Jeli who was fantastic
