Spend your morning with the cutest, yet impressive, creatures in China! Visit either the Chengdu Panda Breeding Center or the Dujiangyan Giant Panda Center and take a guided tour of the facility. Tour through the baby and adult panda areas and visit the red panda section to see these small adorable animals -- you may get a chance to hold one.
The first and foremost priority of the facility is to ensure the pandas are living in a safe and stress-free environment. Depending on the condition of the animals or the season of the year there may be some situations where the facility is unable to guarantee panda holding for your tour date. You will be given prior notice and refunded the difference.

    This is a great activity that you can easily fit in one afternoon, and the Panda parc is anyway a must do if you go to Chengdu.

    The tour proposed is very convenient with the hotel pickup and drop off (thx to our driver mr. Pan).

    A special note for the guide ms. Hayley that was assigned by chance. Perfect english, very friendly, helpful and knowlegable, she made the tour a better experience.

    Kate was my english speaking guide, she was excellent.
    The tour was excellent. Kate communicated well and I learnt a lot about pandas as well as China.
    At the panda base, Kate ensured I could see the pandas and had the best viewing for my photos. Go in the morning before it gets busy.
    Highly recommended !

    We only had 1 day in Chengdu and I wanted to see the Great Pandas up close and so we chose the private half day tour with feeding. Our lovely guide for the day was Hayley and she met us nice and early in our hotel. On the way to the Research Centre she was very well prepared and she gave us tons of information about Chengdu along with a map and tips for what to see and how to get there on our own if we had the time. Hayley stayed with us the whole of the day, sorting out our entrance, taking us to the locker rooms to get into our overalls for the day, escorting us round the site to our Pandas that we were looking after for the day, lunch in the staff canteen and back to our car. This made everything so simple as her English was brilliant whereas the staff at the centre struggled a little and our Chinese is non existent. The actual content for the day was so much better than just observing the Pandas as a normal visitor would. We got to clean out their shelters and go into their enclosures to replace the old food with fresh bamboo. We made the cake treats for them and then got to hand feed them twice; once in the morning and again in the afternoon. Although on each occasion, you only get to feed them them 3 pieces of carrot and it lasts no more than a minute - you are face to face with one of the most beautiful creatures on the planet and when he looks into your eyes, it is just heart melting. The experience in my opinion was unmissable. Main Tip for the day: The pandas fall asleep around lunch time and if it is hot and sunny - they take shelter somewhere and you cant see them. So make sure that when you get your free time to walk around before lunch - you make the most of watching them all eating and playing as you may not get the opportunity again if the day gets too hot.At the end of the day Hayley was also able to find out from the driver that he had no further customers after us and so were able to make a private deal to transfer us to the station for our bullet train to our next destination. This really saved us some time having to sort out a taxi with our hotel(which was Chinese and the receptionists could only communicate through a translation app) so this made the end of our day stress free. Thanks to Hayley for making our trip so enjoyable.

    Jenny, our guide, arrived on time and showed us to a clean and comfortable VW Touran.

    In about 30 minutes we arrived at the Breeding Center where the car park was empty

    Jenny explained that since this was after the National Holiday and it was better to get there early to beat the traffic / queues which we did not mind at all. Jenny took us around the park. It was very peaceful and tranquil inside. No queues at all as there seemed to be just a handful of people. We were very lucky.

    Jenny also mentioned that the normal feeding time is between 8am to 9am so we did see a lot of the Pandas eating. We even saw Panda play fighting, and climbing trees. Managed to see the Red Pandas as well.

    Jenny gave us a lot of information throughout the tour.

    A great relaxing and enjoyable day. Definitely worth seeing the Pandas.

    Thank you Jenny.

    We enjoyed the tour and seeing the pandas.
    Our guide spoke good English and was able to tell us information about the pandas. The guide was friendly.

    Tour guide Kate was exceptional: knowledgeable, accommodating and fluent in English. The driver, Mr. Jiang, was excellent at navigating the traffic out to the Panda Base with a clean, modern vehicle. We are world travelers, and this tour is not to be missed. Kate and Mr. Jiang were the "dream team." Thanks!

    Our driver and guide were professional, efficient and friendly. GUIDE: Morley toured us around the Panda Breeding Centre very efficiently maximizing our time and managing our program to see everything without being impeded by crowds.

    DRIVER: Mr Chen arrived at our hotel 1/2 hr early, identified himself and invited us to continue having our breakfast. This left us feeling secure all was set for the day.

    In addition, both Morley and Mr Chen went out of their way to assist us with other travel details too - so generous and much appreciated.

    TOUR SUMMARY: Aside from the travel details the number of pandas we saw was incredible .. an absolutely fantastic and memorable half day - highly, highly recommended

    Our guide Haley was amazing, she provided detailed information on the facility and the pandas. We were able to see the newborn pandas and had a great day thanks to Haley.

    This tour was great, and just as advertised. Worley was an awesome tour guide, and knew so much about Chengdu and pandas. We were picked up promptly at 7:30am at our hotel, and were taken to the Panda Breeding Center. We were able to tour the facility and see all the pandas before getting ready for our photo with the panda! It was 20 seconds or so with the panda, who was sitting and eating bamboo the whole time. It was amazing though, and definitely worth it. Thanks again to Worley for all the information she provided and the fantastic tour!

    I took this tour back in November. Worley met me at the hotel promptly and we headed toward the panda center about an hour away. She was full of information about the center and the city of Chengdu. Worley clearly was passionate about pandas and made the perfect host for the day! We spent the afternoon at the center. Worley helped find the best vantage points for views and photographs. This was one of the most memorable aspects of an incredible 2 week trip to China. I highly recommend this tour!
