We did this last year..and it was just wonderful! We were set to work clearing out our panda' s enclosure..and later in the day fed him. Amazing. Your guide takes all the photos at this time as you are not allowed to. His poo had to be collected by us and put in a special basket to be weighed..part of his health check. We had lots of time in the afternoon to walk around the centre and take lots of photos and see the antics of baby pandas in their "nursery" enclosure where they have an "adventure park " and play equipment ..like children. Do do this if you can ! Incredible creatures. They just don't look real!

This calls for a very long day but if you want to see the panda's and the LeShan Buddha in one day then this is a great tour. Our tour guide, Louis, spoke very well and was very passionate about China and the surrounding sites.

It was indeed an awesome week spent with my girlfriend, her mom, my sister and I together with a surprise visit from my girlfriend's siblings and in-laws. We were a total of 9 in the group and everything was well-planned and coordinated by the main contact person David. He's one awesome guy who's quite fluent in english and is trying to learn other languages, as well. He coordinated everything with me, up to the last detail. Highly-recommended. Also, Jiuzhaigou was one of my dream places to visit before. Two years ago, an earthquake strike the province which forced them to close the park down. I was quite sad about this, but when I knew it opened last September, I immediately decided to propose to my girlfriend there and surprise her during our visit to China. We had a meeting in Guangzhou then flew to Chengdu then took an 8 hour bus to Jiuzhaigou with some Panda Visit in the middle. Admittedly, the bus rides were long, but the views of Jiuzhaigou and Huanglong were worth it. Also, expect the food to be average, and mainland chinese people pushing people around the bus in Jiuzhaigou park.

From when we booked the tour to when we visited Jiuzhaigou and Huanglong David and Zhang have provided excellent service. Both have gone above and beyond to make sure we have the best experience possible. We had a great time and I highly recommend this tour company for any visit to Sichuan.

If you think visiting panda's park and Emeith Mountain you can't do it without Winnie! She is an special guide who not only will tell you all about the places, she will bring you much more than that, her kindness, amability, her sens of humor. You will have a great time enjoying the places and learning all about them, having extra fun and talk with her.
