We tried to book the tickets directly, however it just wouldn’t work, so arranged with Get Your Guide. The process was super simple and the tickets are attached to your passport, so on the day they just scan your passport. We got a taxi from Chengdu to the pandas, and then another taxi back when we were finished- this is a really cheap way of doing it, however the metro is also available. The pandas was the best experience! They are so beautiful and we spend 5 hours just taking it all in! It’s a fabulous half day trip and absolutely recommend it.

Exceptional!!! I enjoyed every minute!! My guide was professional and went out of his way to accommodate me. I’m very satisfied with his service!

The tour was perfect. The guide and the driver were very professional, friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this tour.

Collecting the tickets went smoothly. The show was worth seeing and we enjoyed it a lot.

Easy and quick activation. Stable network and VPN connection
