We had the panda base and Sanxingdui Museum tour with Victor in Sept 2023. We highly recommend this tour.
The tour is well planned, and Victor is the best tour guide a tourist can expect.
He is very knowledgeable about Chengdu and surrounding areas.
We visited panda base in the morning, then he took us to Guanghan city for lunch to enjoy very tasty local food, we spent the whole afternoon in Sanxingdui museum, The museum is fabulous, and Victor make it even more interesting.

Daniel meet us early to head to the Dujiangyan Panda Base where he gave us a great back story and history about Chengdu and the panda base. Upon arrival we started our volunteer program where he again helped out translating from Chinese to English and guiding us around the panda park. Giving some awesome information about the pandas.

When we got back to our Hotel, Daniel helped us out with choosing some great authentic Chinese restaurants and activities to do the next day as we walked around the city by ourselves. These did not disappoint and we enjoyed every moment.

He was that great that we decided to book him again a couple days later! This time to the Giant Buddha stopping off to try some street food and look at a tea plantation.
If you’re looking for a guide with great enthusiasm and knowledge that speaks good English then Daniel is your man!

The tour was well organised, gave us plenty of time to explore the places.

Victor is a great tour guide with lots of knowledges about Chengdu, Leshan. He was very kind and patience with us. He answered all our questions, recommended a good dimsum restaurant in Chengdu, how and where to catch Tianfu airport shuttle bus and where to watch 3D panda commercial ads. He also willing to help us after the tour.

We also had good driver and very clean car.

We've enjoyed the tour and highly recommended Victor.

Daniel was a fantastic guide!
He met us at the airport on time. He had a great, modern car which could easily fit in all our luggage.
We arrived at the Panda base very early, but he knew the best route around the park.
He then took us for an authentic Sichuan lunch in the city and then a walk through the Tibetan Quarter.
I would highly recommend him.
His English was very good.

Daniel was our guide during one and a half days on a tailor made program I had suggested to him. He is extremely reliable and customer focused, during the preparation phase as well as during the excursion itself. Given the excellent experience made with Daniel and having met him as a very knowledgeable and polite person, I can recommend him to everyone.

Daniel was an excellent tour guide. His tour plan was well organized. Especially the decision to take the remote Panda station in Bifengxia for our volunteer panda day was super. We were the only ones there. Also the street food Leshan and dinner in Ya'an was a great experience. Chengdu downtown is not a must see place. I highly recommend Daniel as a professional tour guide.

We're glad to hear you had a great private tour with Daniel, and managed to avoid the crowds at the more remote panda station. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review here!

Daniel was an outstanding guide and helped make our Chengdu visit truly magical. He established great confidence through his consistent and proactive communication prior to our arrival in Chengdu. Once we arrived, he was punctual, flexible when needed, highly attentive, extremely knowledgeable, and a pleasure to be with.

We cannot recommend Daniel's guide services highly enough. Our trip good would not have been nearly as good without him.

Wonderful day with Victor Wang. We spent a day at the Panda base and the incredible Dujiangyan irrigation system which is environment-friendly and over 2200 years old! Victor speaks completely fluent English and has an encyclopedic knowledge of Chinese history and culture, especially the Szechuan area. His helpful tips about the hotel and restaurants made the trip much better. Always proactively helpful and never pushy. He makes suggestions according to your interests and preferences and you decide what you want.
A mark of a great guide: our flight out had to make an unplanned return to Chengdu because of the weather. We thought we had to find a hotel for the night and called Victor even though he was no longer our guide. He responded IMMEDIATELY and helped us find an airport hotel. Luckily, plane took off again an hour later.
One of our best guides ever. Will use him again when we return!

Fantastic day, well organised by Daniel our tour guide which meant a relaxing hassle-free trip for us. Daniel had plenty of information to tell us about Chengdu while carefully driving to Chengdu Panda Research Base. The place seemed crowded but Daniel knew the route to follow and we were able to view pandas without any crowds, sometimes the only ones. We had our choice of lunch and we wanted to try hotpot. Daniel ate with us and showed us how to eat this delicious Chinese fare. Recommended day out.

Daniel was our tour guide to Qingcheng Mountain and the Dujiangyan Scenic Area. We highly recommend him: his english is very good, he is very engaging and informative and he was enjoyable to spend the day with. In addition to providing us with insight to the areas we visited, he thought of little things like packing cold water, pointing us to less crowded and cleaner toilets, and bringing us to a well-priced and wonderful river-side restaurant. Also, his car is very new and clean.
