Thanks so much for doing the tour PandaEatsWorld. Glad you enjoyed it so much, what tunnels do you speak of? Is there construction in front of one of the stops at the time you did the tour maybe? Thanks again for having the experience and sharing it with others, always helpful, I am sure, like I, you rely on these reviews to make decisions, so thanks for adding to the community.

Hi HolidayMaker859, Sorry you haven't heard from me, Craig here the guy who approached you in the street. I thought I had emailed everyone with instructions on how to beta test the app, you must of missed out on this :( I am really sorry. I can still send it to you if you would like to PM me your details. I can assure you this is not a scam, we are about to take the native app live actually, other beta testers responded, so I am sorry I left you off somehow.
