          A half day tour to Laoshan Mt scenic area with Barry as our english speaking tour guide
          We went to the beautiful Laoshan mountain scenic area. Barry was our english speaking tour guide. He's very knowledgeable. I recommend him to be your tour guide in Qingdao and the surrounding area.

          Great tour with Linda
          I had a great experience exploring Dali with Linda as my guide. We were able to go at my own pace and adapt to the current COVID-related policies. Highly recommended!

          No show!
          I had booked this private tour with Viator (written confirmation, with date, time, hotel name and pick-up). The operator/guide never showed up, and couldn’t be reached on the designated phone number, despite several tries. Neither I nor Viator could reach them. An hour later they returned my calls and said “I don’t think we have any tours planned today.” (Viator has refunded the tour-cost.)

          Perfect organisation for a holiday to remember
          We had the most memorable family tour with China Kungfu panda travels. We felt everything was great, our guide Jessica and driver truly cared about us which was amazing. They did their best to make the trip remarkable. This journey was something we will cherish for many years to come. We will cherish the comfort and beauty of Stone forest, & history we learned from our competent guide and the delicious food. It was one of the best trips in our life.

          Very Interesting
          Lily was very punctual at pick up from our hotel. Her English was good and her knowledge was also good. There were 3 of us in our party and we all enjoyed the sights Lily took us to - especially the Brewery where we drank Tsingtao raw beer which was very nice. Lunch was taken across from the brewery and was delicious and of good quality. All in all I'd recommend this tour.

          good journey and intersting animals
          we joined the journey in this year all happy , lovely animals. we were there for 2 nights and we visit Jinli street but you need to try the local snacks so delicious, then we went to Kuanzhai alley, Sanxingdui Musuem but the most interesting things is in the Chengdu Panda base so many pandas and so cute, it's better to go there in the early morning so you can see pandas to have breakfast.

          this is a good product to know the local culture and night life in Chengdu.
          Once you are in Chengdu the most things to do is you need to see pandas, you need to try local food , but for the night life I advise to see the show in Shufengyayun theater which is about 1.5 hours show, you may see hand shadow games, spiting fire, changing face, local opera, after it we will drop you to Kuanzhai alley which is another good place to enjoy beer/drinks.
