    We booked with WestChinagGo a daily tour for "Panda Feeding+Dujiangyan Irrigation System". Everything was perfectly organized (thanks to Lily support) and our tour guide (Terry) was very helpful. He gave us a lot of recommendations to enjoy our time in Chengdu. His english is perfect! If you love panda the feeding experience is highly recommended, you will see one panda very close! even if for two minutes... and the irrigation system is pretty unique in the world and the location is very nice. We went in summertime and even if it was very crowded, we love the experience.

    Outstanding day with Bella (Su) being guided to volunteer with pandas and on a mountain walk. Bella has an enormous wealth of knowledge to share, is immensely helpful with all our endless questions and very adaptive to the groups needs as the day went along. Really enjoyed meeting Bella and would very highly recommend - she went above and beyond!

    En viaje de negocios a Chengdu, con poco tiempo para visitar la zona, fue la mejor manera de visitar dos lugares patrimonio de la Unesco en un solo día. Nuestra guía, Flora, era muy profesional y tenía un inglés excelente. Y buen sentido del humor. El conductor también era muy profesional. Nuestra guía mos recomendó comenzar por la mañana temprano en M. Qingcheng, y fue una buena idea hacer la subida con fresco y poca gente. El precio incluía el almuerzo y las bebidas. Todo el trato con Westchinago desde el primer contacto con Lilly, fue muy claro, rápido y sencillo. No piden adelantos para confirmar, se paga al final del tour. Recomiendo esta agencia. Sin duda volveré con ellos en mi próximo viaje a Chengdu.

    Lily did a great job of not only planning my private tour but rescheduling it a day early after Air Canada decided to move my flight up by 12 hours at the last minute -- and arranged a panda volunteer program to boot (a must do these days, it's the closest you can still get to the pandas). Sharlene my guide was cheerfully, friendly and knowledgeable -- plus called around to find out details on museum visits I'd planned for after the tour finished to boot. Excellent service all around from early morning airport pickup to evening dropoff, would recommend unconditionally for your Chengdu visit!

    Our guide, Flora, was just incredible. Her English skills are excellent and her knowledge of the areas we visited was outstanding. Climbing the mountain to see the birthplace of Daoism as an experience of a lifetime. We took a short boat ride across a cute little lake and then a cable car ride and then a walk. We were so lucky with the weather and when we got to the top the view was amazing. There was a sense of peace and natural beauty just by being on the mountain. I can't recommend Flora highly enough.

    After seeing Xi'an, We came to Chengdu. With my last minute planning, I arranged through recommendation seen on TripAdvisor a private day tour to Dujianyan Panda Base and Dujianyan irrigation system. Lily, an organizer of the company, is an expert in the local area. First, she waived our admission fees to the Panda base once she knew that we are Hong Kong citizens (we didn't even know we could get in for free). Secondly, she managed to get my 8y/o daughter to join the volunteer program which the park doesn't allow kids under 12 to participate. What a fantastic well-planned arrangement before our trip has even begun. It already has exceeded any and all expectations. We met our guide Ruby at 7am early in the morning. When outside was still gloomy and dark, she greeted us with a bright smile which swept our coldness and sleepiness away. She is an expert on everything around and involving Chengdu, very knowledgeable and especially passionate about pandas like nobody we've met before. In the park, we took an electric cart to the top of the hill and strolled down. The grounds of the panda park are well kept, peaceful and tranquil. The air is refreshed with a zen smell of bamboo trees everywhere. We saw different pandas, and they all had different eating and sleeping habits. Some liked to eat the stems of the bamboo, and some prefer leaves. We saw one who kept tearing the leaves to accumulate enough leaves in his mouth, took them all out , rolled them into a roll, and ate it. What a bamboo connoisseur! Ruby felt like a family member and did everything to make our trip special. We chatted nonstop for 2 hours on our return trip. Time flew when you're talking with someone that's so passionate about her job, and knows so much about the locals. Our visit to the Panda center is a great experience, but our encounter with these two charming ladies, Lily and Ruby, is even a better delight. We can't be happier for our panda visit on X'mas day 2018!

    Our guide Shelley was on time to pick us up, and has been enthusiastic throughout the day, sharing her knowledge on Chengdu and various aspects of daily life. She spent time walking us through the areas of interest during the visits and pointed out to us many things of interest. Our driver Mr. Wu is also very pleasant, having to negotiate a few traffic jams, and made the day's journey easier. A delicious lunch as well together.. thank you for a great day out!

    Lily's expertise, sense of humor, and warmth made a great encounter with pandas and history perfection. Her timely responses and helpful suggestions made planning our 3-day trip to Chengdu relaxing, yet fun-filled. Her driver, Mr. Chou (sic) was calm and pleasant, which we have concluded, after having multiple drivers throughout China, is a special gift. The panda experience was a once-in-a-lifetime event; but the unexpected beauty of the irrigation district was a pleasant surprise. Lily also coordinated subsequent days' transportation for us, and was helpful in many ways long after our excursions with her were completed. She is a consummate business woman!
