          Highly recommended - Panda Base Volunteer Experience
          Panda Base Volunteer Experience - It was very assuring to have Mr Alvin Liu coordinate the Volunteer Experience at 2 Panda Bases. He has proven to be very prompt, experienced and helpful. Assigned Driver cum Guide Ms Nie is equally proficient with her knowledge of Pandas. She updated regularly on the sequence of programme (as per adjusted by Panda Base owing to weather, situation, etc). Perfect experience and highly recommended. A Certificate & some freebies are given by the Panda Base to mark the memories.

          A must do while in Chengdu
          It was amazing! Jason our guide was very knowlable and patient, he answered all out questions about the Pandas. The volunteering was very interesting and we could see them from a close distancie. We could notice the team has a lot of experience on the panda conservation. We were very lucky the day we went as it snowed some hours before we arrived so the pandas were quite active. We loved it!

          5-Day Jiuzhaigou plus major panda bases January 21-25, 2024
          5-Day Jiuzhaigou plus major panda bases January 21-25, 2024 From the moment our guide Rosa and driver picked us up at our hotel in Chengdu to when we departed five days later, our time with them was a marvelous adventure. Alvin Liu provided our party of three with the best driver and guide! As a 5-day, 1600 kilometers trip to Jiuzhaigou National Park, Jiawuhai, Shenshuping, Dujiangyan, Bifengxia, and Baoxing panda bases came to an end, I just want to say, “Thank you, Alvin, for providing excellent service which included an amazing driver, guide, comfortable hotels, and meals.” Everything was perfect, to say the least. Jun is a wonderful gentleman. He’s kind, thoughtful, and most of all a great driver. He made all of us all feel comfortable and safe. Our eight-hour drive from Chengdu to Jiuzhaigou with a couple of brief stops went by effortlessly. Rosa the guide is second to none. She is so knowledgeable about pandas and told us she was into pandas long before she became a guide. She took care of me (the oldest in our threesome) like a mother hen. Jiuzhaigou is a big park and it would take all day to cover all the lakes and waterfalls. She made sure that I would take it slow because of high elevation and often reminded me to stop and take some oxygen that Jun bought from a shop on the way to the park. Each of us got a canister. The weather was extremely cold (7 degrees below zero centigrade), the road was icy and Rosa provided me with heating pads for my gloves, shoes, and jacket...a testimony of how well-prepared and thoughtful she is. I am so grateful for her. She provided enough snacks, bottle water and lunch for each of us. The feelings that we could count on Rosa and Jun were so comforting. This is the second time since 2018 we have used Alvin’s service and hope in the future our paths will cross again. We certainly highly recommend Alvin and My Panda Tour for your adventure in China. You would not be disappointed. Sincerely, William and Karom Burke Honolulu, HI USA

          We are big panda fans!
          I did this tour before in 2019. The minute I could return to Chengdu, I contacted Alvin for a similar tour with my friend. We really enjoyed ourselves! Our guide was very knowledgeable and you could tell they all love pandas very much. I would highly recommend this tour.

          Alvin and team are a must to get proper advice
          Alvin and his team are extremely helpful. We knew there were three panda bases but wasn't sure which one would be best to visit and he directed us well by advising us to go to one that would not be as crowded and would allow the volunteer program which we were interested in doing. The volunteer program was a great experience that gave us an opportunity to see the pandas from within 2 feet. One was actually trying to paw us to give him more food I guess. It was very cute. Another was watching us as we cleaned their enclosure. Alvin provided an english speaking guide which was extremely helpful and he gave us more insight into Pandas. I really realized how helpful Alvin was after we then subsequently visited other panda bases after visiting the one he recommended. The other ones were more crowded especially the Chengdu Panda base. However, the chengdu one had younger pandas which was a treat to see even if you had to fight to get a view. I highly recommend letting Alvin and his team help with making the plans to see pandas in china. You cannot really rely on what you read on the internet and in China almost nobody speaks english.

          Helpful and knowledgeable guide exceeded my expectations
          I had requested for a guide to bring me to see specific giant pandas in Chengdu Panda Base on 19 November 2023, and also to be a companion in what I worried would be a crowded place on a Sunday. Rosa, the guide Alvin assigned for me, did not disappoint at all. She took me to see all the giant pandas I wanted to see, and more! She was also very knowledgeable about giant pandas, and I was very impressed. She took very good care of me, too. I also got to meet Alex, one of the other guides, who was there doing one of their popular virtual tours for giant panda fans around the world. Thanks, Rosa. And thanks, Alvin - I will most certainly recommend your company to my friends who want to see giant pandas and have never been to China before! Keep up the good work!

          Amazing experience. Highly recommend My Panda Tours!!!
          Amazing experience. Highly recommend!!! When we reached out to Alvin and his team at the last minute, they truly showcased their professionalism and dedication. They attentively listened to our requirements and crafted a completely customized tour plan that catered to our needs Not only did they ensure a seamless experience, but they also provided exceptional care. Nie, our super helpful and caring guide, picked us up on time from your Chengdu hotel. Nie went above and beyond by assisting us in purchasing tickets, making sure we had snacks, and ensuring a hassle-free journey. We were fortunate to visit during autumn, when the trees surrounding the base displayed vibrant and colorful hues, creating a picturesque backdrop for the adorable pandas. With fewer people around, we were able to thoroughly enjoy our time there. Alvin and his team truly deserve praise for their outstanding service and attention to details making the complete experience so memorable.

          Best time ever!
          I started to liaise with Alvin’s Panda tour back in 2019. Due to pandemics our family couldn’t make the trip. Finally this year I took my 85 year old parents and 7 year old son on this trip. Alvin’s Panda Tour was great in helping me come up with a flexible schedule and itinerary that suited to the age of my group and their needs. The tour guide they arranged for me, Rosa, was extremely detailed oriented and catered to all our needs. She was also very knowledgeable in pandas as well as history of China which were perfect since we went on a one day panda tour and then a one day historical tour of Chengdu. She was also a pleasant companion to travel and eat with. I would highly recommend this tour company to anyone going to Chengdu!!!!

          This really exceeded my expectations. Alvin was very helpful with setting up everything through wechat and was very open and honest with pricing and setup. Since we speak Chinese, he even advised us that the tour guide was not necessary as the program includes a guide. Basically you take part in a 6-8 hour tour. The difference in timing depends on when the giant pandas want to eat. You start the morning with some cleanup (exclusive) then tour the complex with a tour guide explaining along the way, then you get to FEED A PANDA! This all happens at a leisurely pace until you reach lunchtime which you have at the canteen with the staff. After lunch, there's a video which you can skip but actually, it's a good time to rest a bit as the morning start is very early. Afterward there may be some more cleanup or you might directly FEED THE PANDA AGAIN! Then you make some panda cakes and call it a day. Extremely worth it!

          The highlight of my Chengdu Trip!
          I was able to creat a custom panda tour with My Panda Tours, and it was most definitely worth the price! I got to learn so much about pandas from my amazing tour guide Alex, who you know loves pandas! The experience of volunteering with the red pandas is truly an opportunity of a lifetime. Pandas are from Chengdu, so when you are in Chengdu you have to see the pandas! I also need to mention Alvin who helped make the best possible day!

          Pandas and so much more!
          This was a fantastic experience from start to finish. We were only briefly in Chengdu so Alvin helped us to arrange a tailor-made 2-day tour that took in the pandas at the Wolong panda base and the stunning mountain scenery of the Siguiangshan mountain area of Sichuan. Our driver and guide (Greenie) were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and they really looked after our family with kindness, attention to detail and expertise - including the best places to eat and lots of tips to get the most out of the trip. Obviously, the pandas were great but the scenery and culture of the mountains in this area were the real highlight for us. Having an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide like Greenie made this all the more memorable. My Panda Tours were excellent - but not just for the pandas!

          BEST panda experience in my life
          We were leaded by Alvin, the most hospitality panda lover I’ve ever met. We started with cleaning panda’s house and playground, one of the funniest thing is that Panda’s poop actually smells very refreshing lol. We even had a chance to feed the panda by ourselves. This is truly the best panda experience I ever had in my life.
