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.

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.

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

We booked this tour from Viator, it was easy, safe and value for money.
In China the company that ran the tour was amazing.
Our guide Green picked us up in a private car with friendly driver. Our guide was polite, courteous, friendly and very knowledgable about ChengDu.
Our tour included: Panda Research Centre where in March we saw 6 month old panda cubs, visit to the wide and narrow alleys, lovely vegetarian lunch and look around a rarely seen Buddhist Monastery, we then proceeded to the People's Park where the retired dance and socialise. We went and had tea at a traditional tea house, where we socialised and had our ears cleaned like the locals. We finished our day with traditional snacks from a restaurant in the park where the same recipes have been used for generations.
We loved ChengDu and felt this tour allowed us to see it from a locals viewpoint, our experience was enhanced due to the openness and kindness of our wonderful guide.
Thank you Viator, tour company, but especially to Green our guide you really made this trip amazing.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our main reason for visiting chengdu was to see the panda's and we weren't disappointed. Our guide was very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend this tour.

Andy picked us up at our hotel and took us to the Panda centre. We had wanted to have a photo with a panda and Andy organised this for us. We went on to a Buddhist monastery for lunch and Andy helped us choose foods which we would like. She then took us to a quaint tourist shopping area, then onto the peoples park where we walked around and had tea and relaxed, later in the evening we had some snacks for dinner. All in all it was a great day. Andy went out of her way to make sure the day was excellent. The day was well panned with lots of interesting things to do and see. Even our driver was great, very pleasant and always ready to pick us up and take us to the next destination. I would definitely recommend this tour, without Andy there is no way we could pack so much into one day, but having someone else do all the organising it still felt really relaxed.

Love this tour and the tour guide was very informative. Did a lot of walking but was worth it. Loved the Pandas and the bamboo shoots were everywhere. So beautiful.

We had a great time as we were brought by Ms Jenny Ting, our tour guide round the Chengdu Research Centre and not missing meeting the Pandas as well as the Red Pandas.
The City Tour was great too as we have enough time to move around and shop for souvenirs.
The tea was marvelous and we met a Chengdu report taking pictures around including all of us.
The snacks was tasty and a good experience for us to try since it was a first time for us.
A tour worth joining.

It was a nice day. Seeing the pandas was great and walking around the old parts of Chengdu was interesting. We'd have liked to spend a big more time browsing the shops in the Old Town Area but felt a bit rushed. The food was very disappointing and the tour lasted for 9 hours but should have been 11.
