“Exceptional Service From Absolute Panda, one of the most caring touring guide!”
The service Absolute Panda provided (Phillip and Lily) was phenomenal, from the first time emailing them for their service to the end of our tour when Phillip dropped us off at the hotel. Traveling with Phillip had us worried free the whole time; he had everything covered for us. Phillip speaks perfect English, has great manners and knows a lot about Pandas, Birds and Chinese Culture/History. We wanted a perfect Panda experience and he gave us one at the Bifengxia Center in Ya’an. Phillip has done so many Panda tours, all the staff at the location knows him…which is good because he was able to provide us the best experience possible. We did the volunteer program, played with pandas and hugged a panda; Phil was alongside with us the whole time for translation and explaining the procedures. After our tour at the Bifengxia, he took us to an ancient town in Shangli for an amazing lunch with the locals. We shopped, took pictures and learned more about the Chinese culture. We couldn’t ask for more from Phillip, he definitely exceeded our expectation. The tour was priced well, the service is great and Phillip will always go out of his way to make the perfect experience for you. If you go to Chengdu, look into booking with Absolute Panda, you will not be disappointed.

We recently visited Chengdu to experience the pandas. I was traveling alone with my two daughters, ages 6 and 11. Lily was very easy to work with in planning the trip, and Philip was a fantastic guide. He even requested our favorite snacks ahead of time and had them available in the car. Philip's English is excellent, he has traveled in the US and can relate to Americans, is great with kids and full of interesting knowledge about the area and pandas. Philip also really knows his way around the Chendu Panda base and was able to get us in early and up close to the babies and young pandas - this was awesome! He also arranged for a delicious meal in Chengdu at a local (and non-crowded) restaurant. Always full of interesting conversation and stories. The next day, we participated in a panda volunteer program at the new Dujiangyan Panda Base - truly, an experience of a lifetime! We traveled in a new SUV which was very nice and clean, but not as comfortable for riding in the back seat as the larger vans we have used in other cities. Our driver, while safe, seemed a little less experienced than we are used to. Other than that, it was a perfect panda experience! Thank you!
“Wonderful panda experience with kids!”
